WeWriWa: His Father’s Son . . . New Paranormal Release - PRINCE OF DREAMS!


Finding and falling for the perfect woman is hard enough. Throw in the fact that you’re of a different species and your purpose is to destroy everything she loves . . . well, that’s kind of a deal breaker. What’s a hero to do . . .?

She thought he was a bastard and she was right. 

No amount of excuses could erase the truth that he’d used her, hurt her and was going to continue to do both . . . and she let him. She’d accepted his duplicity with an amazing outward calm, not flinging the contents of her coffee cup at him but instead, opening the door of reward. Though she knew exactly what he was doing, still she gave him what he wanted, entry into her household and her father’s world for the price of a Judas kiss. 

He was despicable, his father’s son, and far from proud of that fact. 

The best thing he could do for Ophelia Brady was what she expected-grab the gift-wrapped opportunity and never look her way again - the best thing for both of them. 

In the morning, he’d check out of his hotel room and sign a lease on the trendy renovated apartment he’d found in the Garden District, adding that opportunistic address to his resume before handing it to the snotty Nick DePoussier, and then, as Christopher Fraser, he’d follow in that creep’s footsteps by walking all over a wonderful girl who didn’t deserve it. 

Because he was a Terriot. Nothing came before family. And he had a lot to make up for if he was to ever wear that name with pride again. 

What’s the price of pride? I think he’ll find out it’s more than he can pay.

IT WAS WRITTEN IN THE CARDS . . .

Kip . . . Prince in the shapeshifter House of Terriot

He'd said he wasn't a mobster. . . She should have asked if he was a monster.
Who was this too good to be true, always ready in a crisis guy working a menial job for her father? Ophelia knew things. Something was not quite normal about the Kip Terriot hiding behind another name in lace-up dress shoes and a preppy wardrobe – something wild and exciting as all hell. A dangerous something calling to that restless difference in her own soul.

Ophelia . . . daughter of his enemy, girl of his dreams

So sassy, so sweet so perfect . . . and what he had to do would destroy her.

Kip was in New Orleans to save his clan and his kind, not to play white knight for Ophelia Brady with her quirky habits, curvy body and tormented past. His deception would rip the heart from her world, not help heal it. Was his family’s nemesis using his own daughter to make Kip the played instead of the player, pulling him between love and duty to make an impossible choice?

  1. He's displaying an extraordinarily amount of self-knowledge. Can someone who knows himself so well really keep on being a jerk?

    1. Thanks, Jean! There's nothing cold-hearted about this guy. It's a family loyalty issue.

  7. Great snippet - he has it all planned out but I reckon he's not as cold hearted as he believes himself to be, I suspect his loyalty to his clan is about to be sorely tested.

    1. That's the question, isn't it? Which can he live with . . . or without?

  11. That sounds like a terrible thing to do. Maybe he could do something else? (I know it's never that simple, but one can hope!)

    1. His on a ticking clock with high stakes and no wiggle room. If there was a way out, he'd have found it.
