Synopsis (Goodreads):
Three paranormal novellas

Reap the Shadow, Slay the Light
I don’t know what I am, but I’m not human...and neither are the creatures that killed my mom. Running will only carry me so far because there’s a darkness within me, ready to destroy me, and a burning light, begging for escape. It’s the light that screams to my pursuers and works them into a frenzy. Though the darkness might kill me, releasing the light might kill us all...

WarWolf: Half breed
Ema fights to suppress her werewolf emotions and deny her warlock powers. It isn’t easy being a half-breed, but she is determined to slide through life unnoticed by either group. When the warlock leaders team up with humans to force paranormal registration, Ema believes she must choose between her two unwanted worlds. An unexpected companion shows her not all emotions are bad, and power has its benefits.

“Werewolves are real but the legends are wrong...”
It’s the secret Gillian’s father has tried to keep from her and the reason he’s so overprotective. But, he goes too far when he exiles Gillian to a house in the middle of nowhere. Her new landlord, Racer, is more like a cute jailer who has strict orders to keep her safely trapped.
Battle lines between independence and obligation are drawn as Gillian decides just how far she’s willing to go to win back her freedom. And Racer needs to decide what he’s willing to endure to keep her close.
Thoughts on Shadows and Light: I thoroughly enjoyed all three of these stories. While I'm admittedly a sucker for the werewolves (WEREWOLVES!), I got a kick out of the whole set.

Reap the Shadow, Slay the Light: A different take on the eternal battle between good and evil and one I found intriguing. Phoebe's panic and pain over what she experienced is compounded by all the things she doesn't know about herself and what she is. Loved Willam's restraint and his desire to be there for her. *thumbs up*

WarWolf: Half Breed: A sweet, little story about a half-breed who is determined to deny both supernatural sides of herself and the werewolf who shows her that being her isn't bad. I kinda loved Declan. From his first slightly loopy appearance to that moment when he stands beside Ema no matter what. Which isn't to say Ema wasn't fun (watching the stranglehold she kept on her emotions crumble under Declan's relentless presence was a hoot), but Declan made the story for me. I like werewolves, okay! I LIKE WEREWOLVES!

Moved: Not going to lie, Racer and Gillian had a hilariously sexy thing going on. You know, as she attempted to drive him batshit crazy with her antics. Poor Racer had no idea what he was getting into when he took her on as a new tenant. Again, I LIKE WEREWOLVES!
