There are a ton of shifter stories out there…alphas and packs are hot!
I love shifters but doing what everyone else is doing the same way is sort of boring. Or, as an author, I feel like I might write something close to something already out there and not even know it. True, every author will write the same premise differently…but I wanted to put a unique spin on it where the conflict isn’t another shifter pack. It’s not even human hunters but scientists.
Who doesn’t love the Big Bang Theory full of nerds and geniuses out to make meaningful discoveries? I wanted to blend some loveable (and hunky) scientists with the mega hot shifter trend. Opposites attract, right?
The bears are like Penny, full of common sense and with a good feel for the world around them. The geeks might know how to experiment in nature but they’re not experts on everything!
Both sides have strengths and appeal. Geniuses out to help the Earth aren’t exactly dangerous but a discovery like shifters could make one of those guys a science super star. Will they all be able to resist such a Nobel Prize worthy discovery?
I’m not sure how readers will respond to this take on shifters and geeks. Making the story MM adds another dash of fun for me. Hopefully the combo will be appealing and readers will want more of the quirky relationships between a new scientist and a local shifter…I’d like to do more in the series but want to make sure my spin on shifters is in demand!
GEEK IN THE WOODS
Major construction disrupts more than Ray Hooker’s life; it rattles his small town with a secret.
As sexy genius Eric Ridgeway continues building his state-of-the-art think tank, the town’s shifter population is terrified their identities will be uncovered by the group of incoming scientists. When fear drives vandals to slow construction, Ray helps Eric defend his property. Their relationship heats up and, in order to protect Eric, Ray reveals that he’s a bear shifter.
Now, not only is his secret out of the bag, but Ray needs to decide if loving Eric is worth the risk of discovery by other scientists. None of that will matter if their newfound attraction can’t outlast fear, lies and distrust!
