Bear in Mind is Now Out!

Grizzly bear shifter Amy Rutherford has special abilities where she can hear voices in her head—the thoughts and feelings of others—and she needs to get control of it. It started way before she nearly died in a car accident during a rainstorm where her parents perished, and she’s sure the crash wasn’t an accident. But nobody believes her. She can’t let go of what had happened, and storms bring on a case of Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome. She was on a blind date while celebrating her sister and her husband’s anniversary and a storm rages overhead at the dance club. She’s assaulted by all the voices in her head, until one stands out. A man is observing her, hiding his dark secrets from her, or trying to—and she’s not sure if he’s one of the good guys, or not.

Cedric Shader is a grizzly bear shifter and knows not to contact Amy the way he did at the dance club, instead of trying to meet her face to face first. But he senses her vulnerability and that she is experiencing psychic overload, just like he would when he was a kid. Now, he uses his ability to investigate murders, but the crime scene memories stay with him, though he tries hard to compartmentalize them, and he doesn’t want her to witness them. He told himself he is here on a job, not to become involved with a woman who has psychic issues. But she’s in trouble—and he’s certain she needs him to teach her how to cope. Worse, she believes someone had murdered her parents, and he’s beginning to wonder if she’s right. With a break-in at her apartment, and a possible connection to the murder of her parents, they’re running out of time before the person kills again.

I’m still waiting on Apple’s link, but everyone else has the book.

It took me a decade to write the book because I had to keep stopping for other books that were on strict deadline. So I was glad to finally finish it! I hope everyone loves it!

I also redid the cover for The Genie’s Wish and worked on the story to add an epilogue and add more to the story.

Genies are only fairy tales. At least that’s what Lizzie Mason thinks until she manages to summon one from an antique vase. Now she’s in real trouble as she vows to save the man imprisoned in the bottle from a fate worse than death and ends up in his world, hoping to change fate without getting herself killed.

The genie must right the wrongs of the past before the curse placed on him can be broken. But will the woman who has freed him be able to manage in a world where deceit and death await them?

I have a request for another vampire adult book. I need to see if I had another that I’d started. I don’t think so, so I’ll have to begin from scratch.I love it when readers get hooked on a series and want more. I had finished 2 of the ones I’d started last year, I think. So this will be number 7. But I’m working on Highland Wolf and want to finish the YA vampire book, Bite of the Vampire.

We’re supposed to get severe thunderstorms this afternoon, so I need to get some yard work done too. Oh, and I’m having auto read on Roxie’s story so I can listen to the whole story and see where I can add some mentions about the Mardi Gras party. I used the feature to listen to Bear in Mind for the last proof and was able to hear things that I had missed reading. That’s the way it was when I had books narrated for audio books. I’d hear things I’d missed. The auto read feature isn’t perfect–contractions come out weird, and words hyphenated can come out mangled, but otherwise, it’s really great for a different way to proof. Especially since I don’t have to sit and read, but can do some stuff while I’m listening.

Have a super great day! I’m off to get some more yard work done. This is the time of year when I’m trying to figure out if “it’s” a weed, or a flower.
