Loving Boone

Fighting for their lives... and love...


Beth-Ann Miller returns to her Tennessee mountain home to find chaos erupting between her survivalist family and their shape-shifting neighbors. Her father is convinced the were-cougar clan is responsible for the murders occurring in their area and interrogates one of the shifters, Boone Evans, her childhood sweetheart. When Boone declares several members of his shifter family have gone missing including his little brother, Beth-Ann suspects someone else is behind both the murders and abductions.


Boone never expected to see Beth-Ann again. When she frees him from her father's cabin and promises to help him find his brother, Boone doesn't plan on rekindling their passionate love affair or facing the pain of past mistakes. Nor does he plan on coming face to face with the man responsible for altering his family's life forever.


With men hunting the were-cougars, can Beth-Ann and Boone risk all to have a future together? Or is loving Boone too high a price to pay?          

Boone returned her stare, his green-eyed gaze boring fiercely into her heart, her father's rage reflected in his gaze. It wounded her to see him look at her with such fury.


Although they hadn't parted on the best of terms when she left for college, she had done nothing to hurt his people. And she didn't believe her father would either.


But Boone stared at her with such accusation, he didn't need to verbalize his thoughts.


She was one of them.


Beth-Ann parted her lips, trying to think of something appropriate to say. Nothing seemed right. What words could she say to fix this? To fix what happened between them.


There was nothing.


So, she closed her eyes, took a deep breath and straighted her shoulders.


When she opened her eyes, he remained straining against his bonds and staring as if he wanted to cut her apart.


But this was Boone.


He'd never hurt her.


She stepped forward. From the corner of her eye, she caught sight of her Uncle Travis about to protest, but she raised her hand to silence him. She stopped when she was an arm's length away from Boone.


He kept his gaze fastened with hers, not even blinking as she approached.


Beth-Ann gently pushed a few sweat-soaked strands of hair out of his face so she could view his injuries better.


She gasped at the blood seeping from several cuts on his cheeks and around his eyes. Redness discolored his cheekbones from the impact of her father's fists and swelling was not far behind.


His face was going to be one big bruise.


Even as she stared, the flesh around his left eye was growing puffy.


"You're going to need ice," she muttered, more to herself than to him.


"I'm going to need that knife," he answered, nodding to the dagger still sunk into the floorboards.


"Not here," she said with a shake of her head. Her father wouldn't kill him. It wasn't in his nature. "No one will hurt you here."


"Not anymore?"


She flinched.


This wasn't the Boone she left behind. It was as if she gazed into a stranger's face expecting to see the boy she remembered. He might look the same, but his eyes had changed. His soul had changed. He'd been wounded in ways she couldn't comprehend.


And, he had it right. Despite her beliefs, he'd been hurt by her father's hand. Geoffrey already inflicted injuries on him that might have killed a normal human. 


But Boone wasn't human, was he?

"Looking for a great paranormal romance with cougar shifters? Look no further! You have a rural mountain setting. A clan of survivalist humans (including Beth Anne's family) who have moved out to the middle of nowhere because they don't trust life in the cities. A clan of shapeshifters who have been persecuted and hunted (Boone's family). People start getting killed. Shapeshifters start disappearing. Both sides blame the other and pretty soon, all out war erupts. But Boone and Beth Anne, who were high school sweethearts, band together to try to figure out who's really behind the abductions to save both their families. This had a little of everything-supsense, family drama, romance, twists and turns. A great start to a series!"
