It's the sequel to Prisoner, which is FREE at all stores.

DJ Torres, the dyslexic werewolf Marine, and Echo, the genetically engineered assassin who is probably not a platypus shifter, return! Can they take on a shady government agency armed only with a playlist of the world's worst songs, the dubious assistance of a pack of dysfunctional made wolves, the power of love, and a whole lot of stolen weapons?

Features banter, movie and music references, about two bingo cards worth of hurt-comfort, PTSD and other mental illnesses (warning: suicide attempt), Russian meat jello, adventure, comedy, and way more sex than in the first book.

If you contributed to the posts requesting songs with odd subjects or terrible songs, some of your nominees appear in the book.

Echo has devoted her life to protecting her sister.

In all her years as a genetically engineered assassin, Echo never met anyone like DJ Torres before. The captured werewolf Marine offered her trust, friendship, love, and the hope of freedom— not only for herself, but for the frail clone-sister she won’t leave behind. But will Echo’s dark secret destroy their hopes for the future?

DJ Torres would give his life to save his buddy.

DJ has spent his life accomplishing the impossible. But now he’s faced with a dilemma that threatens to crush even his bright spirit. DJ can’t rescue his captured buddy without fleeing the lab. Echo can’t flee the lab without abandoning her hostage sister. Will DJ be forced to choose between his best friend and the woman he loves?

Will love keep them together or tear them apart?

Still held captive by the shady government agency running Wildfire Base, DJ and Echo are forced to go on a series of missions, from undercover escapades at an excruciatingly elegant diplomatic party to a desperate battle in a terrorist compound. Their relationship grows stronger under fire… until they are confronted with a terrible choice.

Partner has a happy ending and no cliffhanger.

You can get Partner as a $3.99 ebook here: Amazon. Amazon UK. Barnes and Noble. Kobo. Apple.

The paper version will come out later. You can also get it direct from me by Paypaling the cover price to Rphoenix2 at hotmail (NOT gmail.) If you feel so moved, you may add a tip/patron gift, but that is absolutely not necessary. I only mention it because several of you have mentioned thinking that the prices of my self-pubbed books are excessively cheap.

Please consider reviewing it. If you do, please mention that it's a sequel and the first book is free.

This Yuletide four people requested the Werewolf Marines series, which I wrote under the pen name of Lia Silver. So I thought it would be nice to treat them. As it happens, I also matched on it. (I offered something like 20 fandoms, so this was still a bit coincidental.)

If you have not read the books but are thinking of reading one of the stories, read Diamond in a Coal Mine It’s set immediately after the end of Prisoner and so is somewhat spoilery, but not a book-destroying way. All you need to know is that DJ is a werewolf Marine, Echo is a genetically engineered assassin, and they’re both being forced to work for a nefarious secret government agency. I don’t think the other two stories will be meaningful if you haven’t already read the books.

My Yuletide assignment was the second time I’ve matched with a friend. This time was somebraveapollo. She asked for a story about DJ the werewolf Marine (who is also literally a DJ) and Echo the genetically engineered assassin, set during or after Prisoner. This was a bit challenging, as all their significant interactions in Prisoner occur on-page, and Partner begins three days after the end of Prisoner, so there’s not a big time frame to work within.

I then had to figure out a story that contained hurt-comfort (which somebraveapollo likes), a plot (I find plotless vignettes difficult to write), which could fit into a short story length, which takes place right after Prisoner,, but wouldn’t contradict anything in Partner. Sherwood helpfully provided the general premise of “Diamond in a Coal Mine.” I added hand jobs and kneeling.

rmc28 and slashmarks made basically identical requests for interaction between the clone sisters Charlie and Echo, so I wrote one story, Blank Pages for both of them. I hope it wasn’t too annoying to write in extensive references to an unrequested canon, Little Women. I did try to make it comprehensible even if you’d never read the books or seen the movies. The biggest challenge, given their fairly tragic canon background, was not making it too gloomy. Hopefully I managed hopeful.

In First Hunt I took up opalmatrix’s suggestion of detailing the hunt which is mentioned but not shown at the end of Laura’s Wolf. She is also a friend, so I wrote in some things I know she likes: found family, domestic coziness, ensemble cast, and huddling for warmth. All of which are also present in Laura’s Wolf; no wonder she liked it. ;)

By the way, before the letters appeared, I had figured that with four requests, someone would request DJ/Roy. I had been totally willing to write it and even had an idea, but no one requested. Oh, well.

Finally, I read the Werewolf Marines story I did not write, slashmarks's Sparks, with great delight. It’s also about Charlie and Echo. The only reason I didn’t comment on it was that it would have made it obvious that I wrote the others.
