Shifters in Vegas
Paranormal romance with a zany twist. Dragons, wolves, and bears playing to win against the odds.
Chronologically, the order of stories in this series is Gambling on Trouble, Gambling on Her Dragon, and Gambling on Her Bear. But if you prefer to follow one couple at a time, you should start with Gambling on Trouble, continue to Gambling on Her Bear (because those two books follow the same two characters, Karen and Tanner), and then backtrack to Gambling on Her Dragon (the story of Karen’s sister, Kaya, with Karen playing a supporting role). Either way, every story is a standalone romantic comedy - Las Vegas with a paranormal twist!
I have a new project to present: my all-new BONUS MATERIALS video series. A lot of people ask how I get my ideas, and I found a fun way to share those interesting tidbits with you - by letting cute furry animals do the talking for me.

Sin City has never been this sexy, steamy, or zany before!
Book 3 in the Shifters in Vegas series features Dex, the card-dealing panther from Gambling on Her Bear. Just wait ‘til you see what misadventures he survives to win over his destined mate!
A she-dragon with a heist to plan. A bear shifter with a casino to guard. A dangerous combination, even in Las Vegas.
A spooky, sexy story coming to you just in time for Halloween!
She forced herself to back up toward the door, but then he turned and looked at her, and her muscles went on strike again.
Not going anywhere, her dragon pouted. Not leaving my mate.
Not my mate— she started to insist, but then her eyes locked in his.
Deep, dark, chocolate brown eyes that were earnest and surprised. Like a lost puppy’s, desperate to love and be loved, which was crazy, because the man was all muscle and raw power. All alpha.
She cleared her throat sharply, trying to snap back to her senses. That man was no puppy. He was a god damn bear. A grizzly, if she guessed right. A beast that stood way, way up in the food chain. The kind who could tear right through the solid wood of the bar.
Bear shifters were notorious for three things: loyalty, ferocity, and their overly cautious ways. And she didn’t have a cautious bone in her body.
So why are you being so damn flighty now? her dragon complained. Bothered by a single bear?
The bear didn’t bother her. Not one bit. The notion of a mate, though… That terrified her.
Back up to the door and get away, she ordered her legs, but they didn’t even twitch. They forced her to stay there, meeting those soft, bewildered eyes.
If he’d looked at her and oogled, it would have been so, so easy to brush him off. If he’d murmured a lousy pick-up line or started telling her about how many Super Bowls or World Series or Greco-Roman Olympic wrestling medals he’d won, she’d have been out of there in a flash. But he did none of those things. He just looked at her with the same flabbergasted, oh-shit expression she had to have been wearing just then.
Mine, those eyes said. Mate.
Dragon shifter Karen Proulx is in Vegas to hunt down a diamond, not a mate. But the minute she lays eyes on the brown-eyed bear of her dreams, everything changes.
Bear shifter Tanner Lloyd is a man on a mission to save his home town. He doesn’t have time for a wild ride with the beguiling woman who turns his world upside down — especially one who’s half witch and a mortal enemy of his clan. But how can he resist the call of destiny, the pull of desire?
A zany paranormal romance with adult content — not to mention vampires, showgirls, a card-dealing panther, and much more!
This is the standalone sequel to Gambling on Her Dragon.
