Banished Moonbound Clan vampire Lobo only has his found wolf Tehya for company. And the beauty she keeps flashing him which must be her totem. During wolf-play, Tehya’s hurt by a poacher and Lobo can only think to get her help by breaking a rule that can cost him his life. He sneaks her to the doctor at the Moonbound compound. Masquerading as the alpha!
This short gives a more complete reason for Lobo’s exile when he sees the bane of his existence as he flees the compound. Tehya is terrified when she awakes, in human form, in a strange place. She can only think to get to Lobo but has no idea how she’ll explain she’s the shape-shifting vampire she’s been flashing to him during the dozen years she was stuck in wolf form. What to do?
Dark Swan (Otherworld Assassins 2.5) Gena Showalter: Rating:3stars
IOT techs weren’t prepared for what they created twenty odd years ago. Arcadian hybrids, Trinity, Jade and Lilica Swan are each strong but become stronger together. Trinity grew to be the Schon. She’s number one on the AIR wanted list for turning others into terminal sex zombies. But now she needs her sisters and they need her so Lilica allows herself to be captured, certain it will lead her to Trinity.
When cocky AIR agent Dallas Gutierrez encounters Lilica, he’s shocked and attracted. He’s recently had hallucinations featuring Tiffany and Lilica and doesn’t know what the connection is but the triplet’s life-forces are intertwined. This more than a novella sized read is set more in the Alien Huntress universe than Otherworld Assassin and it’s definitely a Dallas Gutierrez fan’s dream.
