Masters of Maria

Book 7

While most of Maria, New Mexico is getting into the holiday spirit, coyote shifter Diana Shapely has more pressing concerns. For one thing, the due date of her twin niece and nephew is rapidly approaching and she needs to find them the absolute perfect welcome-to-the-world gifts. For another, the girlfriend she ghosted a year ago just showed up out of the blue.

Lanie Chappell is a tough cookie who knows how to take “no” for an answer, but she also knows there’s something off about Diana’s rambling rationale for dumping her. Diana claimed she merely wanted to protect human Lanie from the dangerous world of shapeshifters, but Lanie had never asked to be coddled. She didn’t spend more than a decade in the Army hiding from challenges. Furthermore, if there’s anyone who needs her back watched, it’s Diana.

The truth is that Diana was terrified that Lanie would realize Diana didn’t stack up. After being told all her life that she’d never make anything of herself, Diana decided that she’d rather cut her losses than be the one who gets left.

Steady Lanie is the soothing counterbalance to Diana’s wilder spirit and the champion she’s always wanted. But if Diana can’t shake off the deep-seated insults of the past, she’ll never be able to claim the mate she deserves.

These women won't run from a fight...or true love.

Meet all the ladies of the Shrew & Company private investigation agency and the men who love them in the full series collection of the action-packed paranormal romance series.

Pursuing Patrick
After an unregulated research trial warped her DNA and turned her into an honest-to-goodness mutant, detective Dana Slade became an unwilling initiate into the mysterious paranormal world. The new were-cat Patrick O’Dwyer could be the perfect partner Dana didn’t know she needed, but not if she can’t convince herself that another chance at love is worth the risks.

Framing Felipe
Sarah Miller isn’t interested in a relationship with a man who cheats death for a living, but something about Felipe Castillo has her enthralled. Perhaps it’s because the handsome acrobat seems to have just as many secrets as her…or even more.

Bryan's Betrayal
Were-bear lieutenant Bryan Ridge needs Shrew & Company’s help in overthrowing his group’s Alpha, and investigator Tamara Ursu has all the right qualifications for the job. She can help him if she can get past the wealth of distractions. Bryan’s bear is sniffing around for a mate, and for some strange reason, Bryan makes Tamara sick. Literally.

Following Fabian
Solitary Fabian Castillo wants Astrid Falk to be more than his translator, and she just might be on the market for a new partner. But the last man she gave her heart to left her high and dry when she needed him. Committing to Fabian would require a leap of faith she’s not sure she can make, especially if there’s no net below to catch her if she falls.

Eric's Edge
Eric Falk is becoming a shifter with power that rivals his alpha, Maria Weisz is desperate to shut him out. Although he claims he loves her in spite of her hang-ups, she’s used to being lied to by the people who claim to love her. A Shrew and a Bear might make a formidable duo both on the job and off, but Maria can’t trust giving him her heart.

Promising Peter
Sweet Drea Ridge is the soothing mate Peter Ursu craves, and bold Peter is the protective companion Drea needs. But if the lonely hearts can’t convince themselves that they truly deserve each other, they’ll miss the only shot they’ll ever get at true love.

Saving Soren
Alpha Bear Soren Ursu hopes he can convince the witch Marcella Bailey to accept their connection, but she’s got a one-track mind for work. She might be perfectly suited to navigate the demands of one of Bear-kind’s most notorious families, but to save Soren from the obligations of his clan, she must be willing to let him rescue her as well.
New Adult novel: recommended for 17+ due to mature themes and sexual content.

The Gravity Between Us is a daring, romantic, emotional story about friendship, love, and finding the courage to be yourself in a crazy world.

Praise for The Gravity Between Us

'The characters here are so likeable that I was desperate for them to get together, but it's clear to see why they were hesitant about taking such a major step after being friends for so long. Speaking of likeable characters, there's a wonderful supporting cast, and it's really interesting to read a novel with so many well-drawn and sympathetic people in it. The tension - and there's plenty of it - comes from the balance between the pair's feelings for each other and the challenges Kendall faces, especially, as an A list celebrity trying to deal with the paparazzi and adoring fans I also thought the Hollywood setting was very well described and felt incredibly realistic. It's also got one of the best endings I've read for ages, which had me jumping to my feet I was so excited.

Overall, this is certainly the best New Adult book I've read. Massive recommendation for all.'BookBag

'The Gravity Between Us is a fantastic read--humorous, romantic and daring. Kristen's writing style is engaging and honest. In Payton and Kendall, she's succeeded in creating characters whom you care about instantly. And her portrayal of their relationship is beautifully rendered. I loved the Hollywood angle, the question of how one learns to deal with other people's reactions to same sex relationships and the idea of the zany game that is celebrity.

For me, The Gravity Between Us is a must-read new adult novel! I can't wait to read Kristen Zimmer's next book!' 5 Stars!Kimtalksbooks.com

'Tackling some hard subjects, this book was a wonderful foray into the world of the New Adult genre for me. It was a fast paced read for me because I found the characters so engaging. Because I liked the characters so much, I really wanted to see if they were going to end up together!' A Bookish Affair

'I hope this book calls to you the way it called to me. And if/when you do read it, I hope you laugh and get all sappy and emotional the way I did too.'SmiBookClub.com
