Beau LaForte felt an internal pull to the beautiful, innocent Alexa Davidson. Oh, this was not the typical boy-meets-girl story. This was anything but typical. You see, Beau was a shifter – a panther – and the alpha of the pack. What his panther wanted, his panther got. And together, they wanted Alexa.
But when Alexa finds the pretty kitty lolling on her bed, she is determined to get him out -- before he sheds more on her brand new sheets! Can Beau convince Alexa that she is his mate for life?
Instalove. Shifter romantic comedy. 23K words. Novella.
Taking a deep breath, Alexa drew herself up to her full height and steeled herself for a battle. Although, since she stood just an inch over five feet, she knew her intimidation factor was virtually non-existent, but she had to start somewhere. It was time for her to quit stewing over decisions she could no longer change and instead concentrate on the concrete facts regarding her current situation.
And the fact was there was a flipping cat in her bed! A gigantic feline fiend apparently intent on wrecking what was left of her birthday. Because, yes, there was a cat in her bed, and it was stinkin’ immense. Since when did ordinary cats – even if they were frickin’ panthers - get that big?
The simple answer was they didn’t. EVER.
And an even better question was – Why wasn’t she scared of it?
God knew, it had fangs that promised grim death to anyone that provoked it. Oddly enough, though, she felt not a single ounce of fear or distress standing in front of it. It was like she instinctively knew this animal would never cause her a single second of harm. In fact, the longer she looked into its eyes that glowed in the darkened room, the more convinced she was that the purring beast would do whatever was necessary to protect her. It was like she and the animal had some kind of weird, unspoken connection. It was a bond that she didn’t want and had never asked to share, but one that she couldn’t deny and wouldn’t change even if she could.
How fucked up was that? Maybe this was some kind of voodoo curse one of her disgruntled customers had wished on her when she hadn’t served their coffee quickly enough. Personally, she thought that might be a bit of overkill, but caffeine addicts were serious in Louisiana, and one did not play around when it came to providing quality coffee in the bayou.
“Why couldn’t you be a dog? I could have handled this if you were a dog,” she muttered as she rolled her eyes toward the ceiling and hugged herself. “Especially since I’ve always been a puppy person,” she continued to babble as she shut her eyes and continued chafing her hands up and down her arms as a bizarre electrical charge seemed to ripple through the air inside the tiny bedroom.
“Well, I think it’s safe to say that you are now very much a cat person. Or, at least this cat’s person,” a deep, sexy voice rumbled from the bed. “More specifically, you’re this panther’s person.”
Alexa’s eyes popped open as that rich, deep voice seemed to vibrate through her being. Screaming as she spotted an extremely real -- and from what she could tell (even in the darkness) was an oh, so very naked man in her bed -- she quickly lunged for the nearest makeshift weapon she could find. Sadly for her, the closest missile she could find was only her television remote, and that merely bounced off her interloper’s sculpted chest.
“Ouch!” her prowler growled, batting away the remote as she continued to screech, blindly searching for another weapon in the mostly dark bedroom. “Alexa, chère, settle down!”
Wait a second? Why did her trespasser know her name? And why did that southern drawl sound so familiar? Making a half-turn on her not-so-steady feet, Alexa fumbled for the light switch on the wall, relieved when her searching fingers found what they were looking for. Flicking the switch, she squinted as her unfocused eyes tried to adjust when the room was suddenly flooded with bright, artificial light. Finally able to see a few seconds later, she couldn’t help emitting a small squawk as she saw the nude man lounging in the center of her bed.

Totally about to rant
And before anyone is all, "But Snape died and blah blah"
What's his daughter's middle name? Because I guarantee you it's not someone who assumed once Harry and James were dead he'd have Lily (that's some fboi craziness right there) like a certain professor Snape. (Her middle name is Luna, in case you actually did not remember. And she isn't dead)
I get naming a kid after Dumbledore, Lily, and James. That makes all the sense. I take a bit of issue with Sirius, but I will get into that in a bit.
Snape was a bully. He wanted to hurt Harry because, in his mind, it is Harry's fault Lily died. At the same time he wanted to protect him because of how much he loved Lily. So Harry basically named his kid after the guy who wanted to bone his mom. Which reminds me of another comic I have read.
Except what about the EVERYTHING Hagrid has ever done for you? Yeah, he is a bit extreme when it comes to animals. But at least he wasn't a DEATH EATER or called Harry's mom a MUDBLOOD or knew their was a plot to kill Harry but did nothing to stop it, and ultimately helped kill both of Harry's parents. Because apparently that is cool and forgivable because Snape still loves Lily.
And I went on a rant about how much Snape sucks again.
Okay, so the one thing Snape had over Hagrid was teaching. Hagrid was an awful teacher. But you didn't see Harry naming his daughter Minerva (although he should. Because she is awesome), so I doubt that had any influence on the naming. But Hagrid helped Harry way more than he should, at the expensive of himself and his job.
My husband brought up that he could have even given Lily the middle name Ruby. Think how much Hagrid would have blubbered with happiness over that!
The half giant really got shafted way too often. And it makes me so frustrated.
I feel I should add that I really do not mind the daughter being named after Luna. I have no issue with her. She is awesome.
And since I mentioned Sirius, I am going to say my bit about him too. Look, I liked him. But he was a shit father figure. I get why. And it wasn't his fault. He was locked in Azkaban for 12 years, right at the cusp of adulthood, so he never really grew up. And a good part of his mind went insane. It is sad. And I am sorry it happened to him.
But what about Lupin? Who was actually there and sane? And taught him useful things?! He is another character way too overlooked.
Which brings me to a big key point. Notice anything about the two overlooked characters?
Both are not fully human. So, that is something right there that really sticks out for me. Name the kids after the crazy people but not the ones who were ACTUALLY LEGIT THERE FOR YOU. Because that isn't some pure wizard bullshit or anything.
I swear, Hermione is the only sensible one of that bunch.

Blurb: When hundreds of huge holes mysteriously appear overnight in the frozen tundra north of the Arctic Circle, they threaten financial and environmental catastrophe should any more open up under the Trans-Alaska Pipeline or any of the many oil wells and smaller pipelines that feed it. An oil company sends a scientific team to investigate. But when the geologist, his climatologist wife, two of their graduate students, a local newspaper reporter, an oil company representative, and a field biologist arrive at one of the holes, they discover a far worse danger lurks below, one that threatens to destroy all of humanity when it emerges, forcing the survivors to flee south towards Fairbanks.

Blurb: When hundreds of huge holes mysteriously appeared overnight in the frozen tundra north of the Arctic Circle, geologist Jack Oswald picked Angele Menendez, his climatologist wife, to determine if the record temperatures due to climate change was the cause. But the holes were not natural. They were unnatural portals for an invading army of demons. Together with Aileen O’Shannon, a 1,400-year-old sorceress demon-hunter, the three survivors of the research team sent to study the holes had only one chance: to flee down the dangerous Dalton Highway towards the relative safety of Fairbanks. However, the advancing horde of devils, imps, hellhounds, and gargoyles would stop at nothing to prevent their prey from escaping. It was a 350-mile race with simple rules. Win and live; lose and die…
