A to Z - Zebras

A to Z Challenge - Z


I wound up picking zebras as my letter Z because I got in a discussion with Drea about were animals.

Check out our previous A-to-Z posts: W, X, Y

So Drea and I were talking about different types of shifters and how there are some odd ones out there. One we haven't seen are werezebras. Google only showed one book and now I'm wondering why there aren't more werezebras out there! I mean, I've read a book about werehedgehogs, why no zebra love?

What's the oddest were animal in a book you've read? I think werehedgehog or wereshark would be my pick!

A to Z - T.C. Winters

A to Z Challenge - W

T.C. Winters

T.C. Winters has a mystery (see below) that looks good! Also, I'm loving her hair!

Title: Sweet and Savage
Author: T.C. Winters
Series: Savage Series #1
Release Date: March 21st, 2016
Buy: Amazon

Annie Sweet’s nemesis is fire…

The sole survivor when an arsonist destroyed her home, young Annie Sweet is plunged into the nightmarish world of unregulated foster care. When her abusive foster mother also dies in a suspicious fire, the local media dubs Annie the Vigilante Baby.

That’s not who I am anymore…

Years later, Annie has one goal—eradicate her past by saving other children from the horrors of abuse. But as she finds herself surrounded by flames and death once again, she realizes someone doesn’t want her to forget.


The danger escalates, and clues point to Annie as the perpetrator. Convinced she is being framed, she turns to the one man who knows fire.

Firefighter Luke Savage suffers from his own demons, but when he’s called to Annie’s home for a minor fire, he’s taken by her charm.

The flames burn even hotter when Annie’s chief tormentor is found dead on her kitchen floor, yet the deadly deeds continue.

Two in, two out…

Will the firefighter’s creed keep her from harm, or lead her straight into the flames?

WoW [206] - Dominated

Title: Dominated
Author: Maya Banks
Series: The Enforcers #2
Release Date: May 3rd, 2016

To save her, he had to betray her...

In Drake’s shadowy world, his enemies would exploit any weakness he had in order to bring him to his knees, and so he’s never allowed himself to care about anyone...never exhibited any vulnerability, and it made him a force to be reckoned with. Until Evangeline—his angel. A woman who slipped past his defenses like no one had ever managed. She was his to protect and ultimately, to do that, he had to do the unthinkable and drive the only good thing in his world away.

But he will stop at nothing to get her back...

Devastated and destroyed, Evangeline doesn’t know what made Drake turn on her in such a shocking manner. She only knows she’ll never be the same. He once freed her from all her inhibitions, only now she is a prisoner to never-ending pain. But when Drake finds her again, she realizes there is more to his world than she ever imagined, and she must decide if she can once more trust—and submit—to the man who holds her wounded heart in his hands. And he must convince her of just how far he’ll go to regain her love and forgiveness.
