The last of his kind…
Rekkus is the last of the great Black Tiger weres and he is happy to stay that way. Working as security for the Wiccan Haus, a magical spa for inner healing, he has enough danger – and women – to keep him busy. Unfortunately, the Fates are not content with him being comfortable.
Alone and discouraged…
Dana has walked away from all she has known, her fiancé, family, apartment, and job. Now, having a ticket to the Wiccan Haus may be the only way she can move on. But what she finds isn’t what she expects, nor is it what she thought she was looking for.
Meet the unusual residents of the Wiccan Haus. The staff can get a little hairy and not all of the guests eat what’s served in the dining hall. But the proprietors always do what they can to make the resort into a place of healing and peace, using all of their years of practice. At the Haus, where humans and Paras reside side-by-side, everyone in need of the Rowan siblings’ services are welcome.
WELCOME TO THE WICCAN HAUS.

Oh this one was fun and had me hooked right from the start! I'm not usually one for short stories so you know it's really saying something that I was so won over.
Dana and Rekkus were awesome characters and pretty damn great together. They've both found themselves, for different reasons at Wiccan Haus which is a retreat for paranormals (and humans) in need of a bit of R&R. Dana's looking for some down time after a broken engagement left her disowned by her family and Rekkus is head of security and quite content to just be left alone to his job. But oh those pesky Fates get involved and everything changes for both of them. And in the most delicious way...
I'm a total sucker for a kitty shifter and *rawr* Rekkus, a black tiger, was one fine hero. He's sexy and a bit fierce. He does that whole growly thing too which oddly really works for me. LOL. I really enjoyed Dana as well. She's one of those heroines you just want to hug. Everything in her life has pretty much fallen apart with one decision and she's having to figure out what to do next while getting absolutely no support from her family.
"Rekkus, there had better be a good reason for you to interrupt my class."
Dana heard Rekkus growl. She lifted her head to see Trixie pale and take a step back. Grabbing his hand, Dana let him life her up. "Stop growling at people. They'll think you have a bad temper."
"Umm...this must be the naked man I have heard so much about."
Rekkus lifted an eyebrow before looking back at Jessie.
"Pity I missed last night, but he is still quite something, even dressed."
"Funny, I usually don't get to see him dressed," Dana said.
"I'm right here ladies." He yanked Dana closer as he started marching off, and as her hand was fully engulfed, she was forced to follow.
"Wait, you can't just take her with you," Trixie yelled at them.
"Watch me."The two together were pretty yummy. I enjoyed all of their interactions (and the steamy bits which were really good). The relationship moves very quickly but it felt right the whole time and was nicely done. The two really fit each other even if she was just a human and he a shifter. I really liked how the Fates played their part as well in pushing these two together.
"Oh my god. You're a tiger. And I don't mean in the grrr you're a tiger in bed, stud way but in the holy shit you're a fucking tiger way."Usually my complaint with novellas is that they're just not long enough. And you know, that's going to be my only complaint once again. But this time NOT because the story needed more time but because I'm a totally greedy reader and wanted more time with these two characters. I thoroughly enjoyed their journey and everything about them. It was so fun to step into their world and watch the Fates play just a bit with them. I can't wait to check out the rest of the series which looks very interesting and seems to be written by multiple authors. Kinda neat!
