A loner by choice, Alexander Santini lives on the outskirts of the tiny hamlet of Christmas Creek with his dingo where he makes commissioned furniture pieces. There is no one within miles of his home, yet someone’s helped themselves to his food the past few nights. It’s a mystery Alex would love to solve.
Well, there is an overlarge, injured feline skulking nearby, but unless the lynx can turn into a man, Alex is stumped. He’s been leaving salmon out for the obviously ill cat hoping to coax him inside to tend his injuries. Imagine Alex’s surprise when the lynx transforms into a badly disfigured, wounded man.
From another dimension altogether, Kellyn accidentally lands at Alex’s homestead after battling a vampire-wizard with his brother and fellow warriors. As far as Kel knows, to his bitter disappointment, he’s the only survivor. His only consolation is finding Alex, his mate. It’s a heck of a mental adjustment to find out about shifters, wait till he finds out that Kel isn’t the first one he’s met.
An imaginative take on the paranormal within a realistic setting in the outback, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof offers a unique and captivating addition to the popular Monsters InK series. A passionate romance unfolds for Alex and Kel while at the same time Alex learns to accept an entire new reality where shifters, wizards, and more exist. Alex poignantly helps Kel accept his scarred body and lost memories which makes this story all the more enjoyable. Cat on a Hot Tin Roof leaves readers eagerly awaiting the next book.
