Chapters 1-49 are the complete story of Maverick and Aspen.
Chapter 50 starts a short novella titled Brynn's Beta and involves two of the characters from Maverick's Mate.
Aspen, a nurse in the local community hospital, cares fiercely for her patients, friends, and family. In spite of a tumultuous upbringing, she’s a strong, independent, and progressive woman. Even in the midst of the pandemic, she remains a devoted nurse and caregiver.
However, when Aspen meets the (devastatingly handsome) grandson of one of her patients, a new supernatural world starts to be revealed. As a normal, will she be able to cope with all the changes? Will she embrace this strange, but sensational, new world? Can she fit in? Is it possible to set aside her pre-conceived notions of how the world works? Can she accept the unforeseen passion that’s walked into her life? Is yes possible?
Maverick’s Mate is a stand-alone shifter romance with no cliffhangers, no cheating, plenty of heat, and (hopefully) a happy ever after. If you’re looking for a fun afternoon read, this is the book!
This devastatingly handsome man’s hands were around my waist preventing me from falling over. “Steady. Are you ok?” His voice was warm and a little husky. An involuntary shiver swept through me as he helped me stand. Completely overwhelmed by all the sensations in my body, this man’s hands stayed on my waist as I swayed a bit. I was clammy but warm; tingly but calm; heart racing but steady.
I took a deep breath in an attempt to calm myself and realized he was the one wearing that incredible scent from the hallway. There was electricity sparking all around us—practically palpable in the air.
I looked up and met his stunning dark green, almost black eyes (such a unique color) as I took a step back. His hands fell down to his sides, but he didn’t move.
“I … uh,” I swallowed and took a deep breath to regain my composure, “here’s your phone.” I extended my hand to give the phone back.
“Thank you.” He stuck his hand out, “I’m Maverick, Maggie’s grandson.”
