Known scoundrel Jack Avery, “Jacko” must earn the queen’s forgiveness by rescuing her missing daughter from the human world. His sources reveal Princess Noelani is being held by a powerful governor who likes a good game of chance. With twenty borrowed pieces of gold, Jack enters a high-stakes game. Only the lady he encounters is no princess. This pretty Kitty makes him want to hear her purr, but upped the risk of facing certain death for his sins.
Under a memory spell, Kitty recalls nothing before a tormentor bought her and offered protection from assassins who would kill her for being a shapeshifter. But he enjoys demanding she morph, then refuses to allow her the sexual release she needs after transformation. However, the crafty card player she’s assigned to “entertain” reveals himself as a kindred spirit—a shapeshifter—and unravels the lies she’s forced to endure.
Together, Jack and Kitty risk it all. The prize is freedom, forgiveness, and love. However, the price of failure… death.
– Banished Scoundrel is a hot paranormal romantic adventure with a royal shapeshifter family. This longer novella guarantees a HEA with two other stories in the series.
– Second edition. Newly revised and edited.
“By the female articles in the room, I’m assuming I’m not staying in here alone.” With a wicked smile, Jack lifted her sheer robe from the lounge.
Encourage by his comment, she grinned and shut the door. “Well, I’m hoping you won’t mind. With so many guests in the castle, some of us are forced to share quarters.”
Dropping the garment onto the cushion, he strolled forward with the prowling covertness of a stalker. Pictures flashed through her head of his predator skills in the woods—on a hunt.
Strong hands captured her waist before he tugged her close. “Do I receive any benefits for my sacrifice?”
Thrill to have him so close, she drew in his tantalizing scent of inflamed pheromones that ignited a hunger in her sexually deprived body. Excitement tempted her hands to slide under his jacket to the curve of his shoulders and slip his coat down his arms. “Like?”
Not releasing her for more than a moment, he rid himself of the garment, stepped closer and tugged her against his chest. “Like a taste of,” he leaned forward and kissed the side of her neck. “The luscious cream coating the lips of…” his tongue circled her ear. With a low moan, he whispered, “your hot pu… uh… female opening.”
Again, impressed with how he asked nicely before taking what he wanted, she panted, “I’d be more than happy to offer you whatever you want for your willingness to share.”
Strong hands gripped her ass, shoving her against his hard length. “Anything I want?”
Anticipation dotted her skin, making her wonder why men thought women didn’t want sex too?
“If it’s within my means to give it to you.” Rubbing her aching breasts against his chest, unable to deny his urgency for sex any more than she could wrangle with her own.
“Good, because I’ll demand a great deal.”
Tagline—The twist road to redemption can lead to adventure but not without paying a heart wrenching price.
