TA-DA! Mated to the Meerkat

Meerkat Final large

Curvy reporter Jasmine Jones is thrilled when she’s hired to investigate the charismatic but sinister lawyer campaigning for mayor of Los Angeles. It could make her career, but there’s a catch. She has to partner with Chance Marcotte, the annoying (and annoyingly hot) paparazzi with a history of popping up unexpectedly and ruining her scoops.

But when they’re supposed to meet for a stakeout, Chance never shows up. Instead, an adorable, injured meerkat scurries out of the bushes and collapses at her feet. A sucker for cute little animals, Jasmine takes him home to tend his wounds. The next morning, she gets the surprise of a lifetime when she awakens to find an unclothed and bandaged Chance.

Can an ambitious reporter and a curious meerkat shifter stop bickering for long enough to defeat a law firm of evil cobra shifters, get the scoop, find their happily ever after, and have lots of hot sex? (Spoiler: the hot sex is a definite yes.)

A screwball comedy novelette by the author of the "Werewolf Marines" series.

This story is exactly as serious as it looks. I had lots of fun writing it. I hope, if you read it, that it brightens your day. Email me if you'd like an epub.

If I was one of the stock photo guys, I would commission a giant print of all my ridiculous books, showing myself as a Viking, billionaire, were-meerkat, etc.

Please tell me that somewhere offscreen he has a vast and intricately detailed family of sisters and brothers and aunts and uncles and distant cousins and things who are always getting into soap-opera shenanigans and whom nobody even bothers keeping track of anymore because there are just too many and the exploits are just too wacky. Lie if you have to.

You'll have to read it and find out, won't you?

Actual excerpt! Someone has just suggested that Chance is inferior since he's not an alpha wolf or lion or other large predator.

“I’m an alpha!” Chance protested. “Or, well, I could be if I wanted to live in Middle-of-the-Prairie, Kansas, and take charge of thirty nosy meerkat relatives. And kick my own grandma out of her job, which would make me feel like a real asshole. But, you know, if I wanted to fight her, I’m sure I could take her.”

"And we are his sisters and his cousins and his aunts! His sisters and his cousins and his aunts!"

I am looking forward to him NOT being able to lift up a fat lady to have sex w her. Like, as I said, nothing against that, but personally I think meerkat qualities would do it for me more. And now I will see, won't I?

The only lifting in this book is when the heroine picks up the meerkat.

You knew about Compare the Meerkats (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compare_the_Meerkat), right?

(I am now expecting you to write a sequel: "Dating the Dalek".)

It could be a whole series! Leopard seals, harbor seals, fur seals, maybe a walrus for diversity ...

This was a lot of fun. Any chance (har) of a sequel?

Yay, congratulations on finishing it! :)

I am staggered by your genius! STAGGERED. XD I've just finished reading it today, and it was utterly hilarious! The snake lawyers' names and Chance were so funny. Chance's meerkat family is adorable.

I'll post a review on Amazon soon. :)

Aww, thank you so much! I'm so glad you enjoyed it!

Tool of Satan suggested the snake names. ;)
