Blurb from Shift Happens:
When an assignment goes wrong, Andy must find out why or face eternal enslavement.

I grunted and shut my eyes. Of course, imprisoned in a Were house. These buildings were pretty damn close to indestructible and near impossible to break out using strength—a must for house training new Weres. They could get pretty uncontrollable. Good thing I never counted on brute force to get me out of trouble.
“Is there anything I can get you?” he asked.
“Clothes,” I said without thinking.
A shadow passed over me. My eyes flew open. Wick leaned in and placed a hand on each side of my head. Bracing his weight, he bent closer. A smile tugged at his lips, now inches away from my own. His white teeth flashed. “Nervous?”
“You wish.” Butterflies danced the mamba in my stomach. Oh God, he totally nailed it.
His face darkened and he lowered his body. His peppermint breath brushed my face. “You should be.”
A shiver ran through my body at the promise in his words.

Thank you for hosting me Kathy! I apologize profusely for the late appearance. I had it write down as today for some silly reason. But it was definitely supposed to be the 22nd. Gag!

I really appreciate the opportunity to be here "today" :-) <3
