Review ~ Carolina Crypto: The Lizard Man Affair by Blaire Edens #5*s!

This book is Bigfoot Hunter meets Veronica Mars (all grown up)!

I love Blaire Edens’ books in general, but this one may be my favorite of all of them. Lucy’s life as a disgraced academic turned out-of-work cryptozoologist takes a turn for the wild when she meets Spencer, an attorney determined to prove that his father did not run off with a lover, but was killed by the giant Lizard Man haunting the Carolina swampland.

But this aspiring Bigfoot Hunter/Private Investigator can’t help but be intrigued, so she takes the case–and the chase is on.

Five bright, shiny, lizardy, swampy, cryptozoological stars. Carolina Crypto: The Lizard Man Affair is fun, funny, and sexy, and I can’t wait for the sequel!

Anthropologist Lucy Whittemore is on a quest to track down a killer. When Spencer Watson hires her to solve the mystery of his dad’s disappearance, she’s pretty sure the mythical Lizard Man isn’t the culprit. But the truth is usually stranger than fiction. Tracking the beast through a steamy South Carolina swamp, the two find themselves up close and personal with a reality far scarier than they ever imagined. Hunting down a creature of legend might be the easy part. . . especially when you throw the possibility of love into the mix.

Love Shifter Books?

Be sure to pre-order Shifters and Spice, a collection of 20 all-new shifter romance stories!

If you dream of shifters, this set of 20 brand new shifter stories featuring USA Today and New York Times best-selling authors has you covered. Whether you like them large and in charge or sleek and sexy, you’ll find the right story to spice up your night in these pages.

The Shifter Shield Series
My own book in Shifters & Spice is Laugh Out Love, another entry into the Shifter Shield series, though that one features a new hero and heroine. Not to worry, though–if you love Lindi and Kade, there’s more of their story on the way!

If you haven’t read Lindi and Kade’s story yet, my bestselling Shfter Shield novel Under Her Skin is on sale for $.99 to celebrate the Wolf Pack run, and you can also get A Generation of Vipers, a novella featuring Lindi and Kade. It gives a little insight into what happens next in their world, and is dedicated to everyone who has asked me for a sequel. I’m working on a full-length Lindi novel, too. But there may be a few more Shifter Shield shorts in between now and its release date.

A Shifter Shield Novel (#1)

She’s lucky he’s a charmer. He’s lucky she doesn’t bite … much.

Lindi Parker works hard at being human, not an easy task for a snake shifter. She has no desire to search for others like her—until a new case changes everything. When Lindi learns that she she’s not the only shapeshifter in the world, she also realizes she might be next on a killer’s list.

In order to save herself and the abused children she works with, she will have to team up with Dr. Kade Nevala, a member of the shifter tribe responsible for eradicating weresnakes—and the most attractive man Lindi’s ever met. Even more terrifying, she’ll need to embrace her serpent side, a choice that has enormous consequences for Lindi, and for everyone around her.

A Shifter Shield Novella 
Lindi Parker: Children’s Counselor. Anti-Abuse Advocate. Weresnake. And her life is about to get twistier.

Capturing the killer who was stalking the shapeshifter community should have earned weresnake Lindi Parker and her new boyfriend, mongoose-shifter Kade Nevala, a vacation. Instead it earned them a basket of baby lamias and a whole heap of trouble.

Someone in the shifter community doesn’t want those infants—or Lindi—to survive. Not knowing who or what they can trust, Kade and Lindi must use every skill they have to stop a killer—again.

Excerpt

“Don’t panic,” Kade said that evening as he stirred a pot of his homemade spaghetti sauce. “It’s not like you’re bringing all these new lamia babies home to live in your house. We’re going to set up a group home for them, with a live-in staff. You’re their counselor, Lindi, not their mother.”

I poured a glass of Chianti and settled in on a barstool at the island in the middle of his large kitchen. “That’s the thing. I’m not sure a group home is the right way to go with these kids.”

“You signed off on it when we came up with the idea.” He narrowed his eyes at me and tasted the sauce, then added something to it. “Janice thinks it’s the best option we have,” he added, knowing that the leader of the shifters’ Council had been tutoring me in all things shapeshifter recently, and that her endorsement mattered to me.

“Yeah, but…” I trailed off, trying to find the words to explain what I was trying to say.

As usual, I didn’t have to find the exact phrase for Kade to understand. Or any words at all. “You’re worried that without a stable home-life, you won’t be able to give these children the same kind of emotional training that your parents gave you.”

I nodded and took a long drink.

“We can provide stability. Everyone wants this to work.”

“Not quite everyone,” I muttered darkly.

“Everyone who is directly involved wants this to work. You cannot be completely responsible for the entirety of the lamia race.”

“It’s more than that.” I considered what to say, how much to share of my own recent insights. “We will have plenty of other weres stepping in to help raise these kids, lots of people to teach them how to be solid shifter citizens. But until they’re grown, I will be the only adult lamia in their lives. I will be the only weresnake they can model themselves on. That feels like a lot more responsibility than simply being their counselor. In that sense, I am kind of responsible for the entire lamia race.”

“Your parents did fine with you, and they’re not shifters at all,” he pointed out.

“But they managed it by encouraging me to focus almost entirely on my human side. I would like to give these children even more.”

Turning down the heat under the sauce, Kade put the wooden spoon down and made his way around to my side of the counter, where he spun the seat of my barstool around until I faced him. Then he took my face in his hands and leaned his forehead against mine. “You’ll do a great job with them.”

Then he pressed his lips against my mouth.

As usual, his kiss almost took my breath away. We hadn’t been together long enough for the sense of wonder at his touch to fade. The sheer heat of our connection didn’t show any signs of abating, either. The brush of his tongue against mine sent sparks shooting through my veins to pool in the pit of my stomach. It wouldn’t take much to stoke that heat into a raging fire.

But if we did that, his lovely dinner would be ruined.

Not that I was sure I cared.
