Coming in March for the Julia Talbot pen name, there will finally be a new Nose to Tail book to go along with Wolfmanny! This is Gunny’s story, and it’s called Wolf Maneuvers. As soon as I get a cover, y’all will see it!
Bear shifter Tanner loves his B&B and his adopted family of vampires, shifters and more that come with it. The problem is that all of his friends are finding their mates, and he’s still alone. And lonely.
When a kindly truck driver drops spirit bear Kody off in Colorado with his three orphaned bear cubs, he has no memory of his old life and no idea what he’d going to do to keep his cubs alive. Then he finds the Dead and Breakfast Inn and asks for work. He thinks Tanner is the kindest man he’s ever met, and both Kody and Tanner immediately know this is where Kody is supposed to be.
Kody keeps having visions that someone is coming for him, though, and even as Tanner tried to help Kody settle in, he knows he has to figure out what the threat is and make sure it can’t hurt Kody, or his new babies. Can the crew at the Dead and Breakfast pull off a holiday miracle in time for Kody and Tanner to find the love they both need so much?
James Pearson is sick of being down and out. The Apex tech guru has been in a wheelchair since a client gone bad poisoned him, and he’s determined to find out who’s behind their run of seriously bad luck. He’s also dreaming of a certain bobcat shifter, and he can’t figure out if Hank was real, or if he was just a figment of James’ fevered imagination.
Hank DeLong wants to leave undercover work behind him, and he’s missing the connection he felt with James when he was working with Apex Investigations. So when he gets the chance to go back and help the PI firm figure out how all of their recent issues are connected, he jumps at the chance.
Not only do Hank and James have to deal with the mate bond they can feel forming, they also have to fight the danger lurking around every corner for the team. Can they heal James and bring all the threads together before someone gets killed?
Apex tech guru James has been pretty down. When a murderous ex-client of the PI firm poisons him, it leaves mountain lion shifter taking too long to heal and in a wheelchair until his legs start working. He’s also having dreams about a certain bobcat shifter who worked with them on the last case, but he can’t remember if Hank is real of just a product of his imagination.
Undercover cop turned fed Hank is burned out and wishing he was still at Apex, even though that whole experience bordered on deadly. When the rest of the guys from Apex stage an intervention and hijack Hank to come help them figure out who keeps coming after them, he feels like he’s finally home, and his connection with James is a huge part of that idea. They have a bond that goes beyond intense attraction. They’re mates, and Hank knows it’s up to him to help Hank heal and to get the investigation into the recent string of crimes they’ve encountered back on track.
When the criminal element would rather stay in jail than deal with whatever forces are moving against Apex, Hank and James know things are bad. As they trace all the threads that lead back to the PI agency, they have to fight tooth and claw to keep each other, and all their chosen shifter famliy, alive while they also figure out how to make their mating bond work under extreme stress.
