Karis Booth has had psychic abilities for as long as she can remember. But this is the first time she’s used them to solve a murder.

Things are changing rapidly for Karis. As well as filing for divorce from her unfaithful husband, she decides it’s time to make peace with her estranged sister, Erin. With trepidation, Karis visits the café which Erin owns. To her great relief, Erin welcomes Karis back into her life with open arms.

During their reconciliation, a young woman, Carmel, calls into the café with a bread delivery. As Karis watches Carmel, she experiences a strong psychic vision. She sees two shadows following Carmel. Only one of the shadows belongs to Carmel — the other belongs to the person who is going to murder her later that day.

With help from her sister and an old neighbour, Karis does all that she can to find out who murdered Carmel. It doesn’t help that the investigating officer is an ex-boyfriend who broke up with Karis because he couldn’t cope with her psychic abilities. Despite this, Karis won’t rest until she finds the killer.

When she’s not baking her delectable pastries Samantha Sweet breaks into houses for a living, and that almost certainly leads to trouble. When she finds an unmarked grave on a property in a remote spot in Taos County, New Mexico, Sam calls in the authorities. A small mural painted inside a closet in the abandoned house provides clues and Sam is caught up in an investigation alongside the good-looking Deputy Beau Cardwell. A fortune in artwork, a bogus will, and a wooden box that seems to give Sam powers she never dreamed she possessed–it all adds up to a dynamic paranormal romantic mystery.

Then, there is all that chocolate! Sam’s real goal in life is to use her elegant baking skills to open her own pastry shop, Sweet’s Sweets. She’s gaining quite the reputation as a baker with a magical touch, but a few obstacles stand in her way. Her grown daughter shows up on her doorstep–jobless and homeless; her bank account is at an all-time low; and trying to work from the tiny cramped kitchen in her home is becoming impossible.

Somehow, Sam copes and she finds that her dreams might just have a chance of coming true.

EXCERPT

Chapter 6:

The next morning, the sailors stood in ranks on the dock near the little red ship. They wore the uniforms of their home countries—the United States, Great Britain, France, Canada, and Italy. Alex came up from behind with the Commandant, Lord Odin, Colonel Jeffrey, Prince Darin, and the Elf healer, Canfis. She wore her brown uniform as she would have worn if she were reporting to her foster father, Colonel Penser. This was official business. Her brown cloak fluttered in the breeze as the group converged at the ship. Ecstasy stepped out on deck.

Captain Jonas stepped forward. “Ecstasy, we’re ready to begin. Are you?”

“Yes, sir!” He saluted and stomped his foot. “How do you want to do this?”

Lord Odin went up to him. “We’ll bring ten people on board at a time and administer the potion. Once that group is finished, the next ten will board. Alex, pay attention. You’ll have to do this on the other end.”

“Yes, Grandfather.”

The first ten people filed onto the ship with Lord Odin, Alex, and Canfis. They gave each person a cup of water with the shrinking potion. Once they shrank in size, Alex and Canfis placed them in a bin. The next group came in and the same procedure was followed until the final group. One last cup of water remained and Captain Jonas stood beside it.

“I want to monitor the situation, so I’d like to remain as I am. I’d be more than happy to administer the counter-potion.”

“Alex will do it, Captain. There’s no need to worry,” Lord Odin said.

“May I ask, why send your granddaughter?”

“As I told you before, Alex has experience doing this. Well, if you wish to remain as you are, I believe the ship can handle the extra weight.” Lord Odin turned to Alex and held her in his arms. “Have a safe trip and come back right away. You have several more trips to make.” He released her and stepped back. “Oh, give me your weapons, Alex. You’d better not take them.”

Alex took off her sword belt and wrapped it around her sword. Then she undid the buckles that held her Elfin Blade in place on her right thigh, removed a knife blade from each boot, and gave him the cuffs around her wrists that held her assassin’s blades in place. “I’ll probably need my eating knife.” She patted the knife on her belt. “I think that’s all. What about the keys?”

“I’ll hold them until you get back. Canfis, give me a hand with this.” Lord Odin handed him some of her weapons and took the leather pouch with the keys.

Captain Jonas bit his lip as he watched her remove her weapons. She’d been armed all this time with several hidden weapons. What else could she be carrying that no one could see? What about that blue light?

“The Hidden: A Fenris Lyall Tale: (Werewolves & Shifters Book 1)” by Ethan Sandlow

The Hidden cover

The Hidden: A Fenris Lyall Tale:Werewolves & Shifters Book 1 (Werewolves and Shifters)

by Ethan Sandlow

Genre: Thriller & Suspense/Supernatural/Paranormal/Psychics/Werewolves & Shifters

99¢ at time of posting! Kindle Unlimited!

NOTE: THIS BOOK IS NOT A SHIFTER/WEREWOLF ROMANCE/EROTIC STORY. IT IS AN URBAN FANTASY MYSTERY THRILLER!

Fans of werewolves & shifters stories are in for a real treat with Ethan Sandlow’s first Werewolf Novella. “The Hidden” which is the first in the series of werewolf short stories. This action-packed werewolf novella introduces Fenris Lyall to the world, and he is not somebody who is going to be forgotten in a hurry. If you like reading books about werewolves and shape-shifters then let this paranormal fantasy thriller take to where you have never been before!
Fenris stands head and shoulders above any werewolf who has ever lived. He has wandered the earth for centuries ensuring that anyone who discovered his existence, or his true ancestry was never left alive to tell the tale. However, things are about to change.

Even readers who do not normally read Werewolf books or shifter suspense stories have commented on how much they have enjoyed reading about the complex character which Fenris is. Read the reviews and see why readers find it hard to put this werewolves and shapeshifters book down once they have started it. If you are a fan of Werewolf horror books, and are looking for a werewolf mystery and suspense book which is going to keep you guessing right until the end, you are not going to be disappointed!

Fenris had been on the verge of leaving Columbus, until by chance he had caught the scent of the shifters. Undecided as to whether he should kill them or ignore them, he settled on the idea that he would wait to see what they were doing there before making his decision.

On finding out that the shapeshifters were there for the girl, left Fenris with a problem. He knew that the Faction had sent the shape-shifters to abduct the girl. It wasn’t his business but his curiosity had been aroused, why did they want her? Who or what was she? She certainly wasn’t a shifter.

The Faction had been hunting, recruiting and killing people with special abilities for centuries. Fenris had been cautious and ruthless in his attempts to prevent the Faction from discovering his existence. He was no ordinary Lycan, and if they were to discover that there was a werewolf such as Fenris walking the earth, all their attention would turn to him. He discovers that the girl who had got the Faction’s attention was a Psychic, or to be more precise, an Empath. Would he put himself at risk or walk away?

EXCERPT

Chapter 4:

Alex continued with the introductions. “This is Captain Jonas. He’s the captain of one of those gray ships, the HMS Camelot. This is Ecstasy. He’s the wizard who came from the mortal world in this ship.”

Captain Jonas stared at him suspiciously. “How is that possible? How did you come here on this ship? It’s made of wood.”

“Yes, she’s my pride and joy—isn’t she lovely?” Ecstasy clutched his hands together. “If I’m not mistaken, you’re wearing the uniform of the British Royal Navy, am I correct, Captain, sir?” He snapped to attention and saluted like a Brit.

“Yes, do I detect a London accent?” The Captain returned his salute.

“Yes, Captain, sir, I’ve lived in London for many years. I still have a flat in Piccadilly.”

“How did you get here? What route did you take?”

“I flew up to the moon and took a left. There’s this round thingie in the sky and my ship flew through it.” Ecstasy made a circle with his hands.

“Thingie?”

“It’s like a ring of white light.”

“A portal?”

“Yes, that’s it.”

“How many passengers can you take?”

“Ten. More than that, she doesn’t fly right. I once had a party with fifteen–”

“We have over seven hundred. It’ll take forever, but it’s a start. You can take us back to London. How long does it take?”

“About twenty-four hours. But I haven’t said I’d do it.”

“You will do it by order of His Majesty’s Royal Navy, Wizard or I’ll cut you down myself!” Captain Jonas glared at him. “Do I make myself perfectly clear?”

“Aye, aye, sir!” Ecstasy saluted again and stomped his right foot.

Captain Jonas nodded. “Very well. That settles that.” The Captain turned to Lord Odin. “Once our men have been returned, Ecstasy can continue to shuttle others back to Earth.”

“May I recommend the use of a shrinking potion so more people can be taken on each trip?” Lord Odin raised his eyebrows.

“How many people can we get on this ship if we used this shrinking potion?”

Lord Odin pursed his lips. “I’d estimate a hundred passengers could safely travel in that manner. I can send Alex to administer the counter-potion. It’s very safe, but we don’t have any here. I can have some delivered in a few days.”

Chapter 5:

After more greetings and introductions, Lord Odin took a white ceramic bottle from Canfis. “Ladies and gentlemen, this is the shrinking potion. I’ll administer it to Colonel Jeffrey so you can see it’s completely safe.” He took a glass tube from Canfis. “All you need is one drop in a glass of water. This phase will take about five minutes. Colonel Jeffrey?”

Jeffrey stepped forward and drank the water. Then he lay down on the floor on a blanket. Within seconds, his eyes were closed and he was sleeping soundly.

One of the sailors stretched out a tape measure. “He’s six-foot-two. That’s one hundred and eighty-eight centimeters for our metric friends.” Then he gasped as Jeffrey’s body shrank and checked the tape measure again. “Twelve inches? No shit! Thirty point five centimeters, folks.” He picked up the little body. “He’s light, around ten pounds, maybe five kilos.”

Captain Jonas knelt next to Jeffrey and put his head down close to his face. He touched his neck lightly. “He’s breathing and has a heartbeat.”

The crowd fell silent for a few moments before a nervous buzz arose.

After thirty minutes, Lord Odin stepped forward. “Alex, it’s time to give the counter-potion.”

Alex took the blue bottle and a glass tube from Canfis. Kneeling next to Jeffrey, she removed the stopper and slid the glass tube inside. She covered the end with her finger and carefully opened his mouth to place a drop on his teeth. She backed away, waiting and watching, as Colonel Jeffrey returned to full size.

The crowd gasped and covered their mouths.

The sailor measured him again. “Six-foot-two, back to normal.” He pushed a button on the case, retracting the metal tape with a snap.

Captain Jonas came over and extended his hand to Colonel Jeffrey, helping him up. “How do you feel, Colonel?”

“Fine, like I took a nap. Did I really shrink down?”

“Yes, you were about a foot long. We measured you.” He held his hands a foot apart to show him. “Do you feel dizzy or nauseated?”

“No, I’m fine.” Jeffrey shrugged. “It really does work.”

“Walk around.”

Jeffrey took a short stroll around the room.

Lord Odin rose from his chair. “As you can see, there are no ill effects from this potion; you’ll be completely safe. It’s the best and fastest way to get you home.”
