Copper King, Takhini Shifters #1
By Vivian Arend
I'm excited to have Vivian Arend visit my blog today. I've read and loved Copper King already and excited for the Takhini Shifters books. Welcome Vivian!!!
When I started writing, it was all about sharing the things I loved. Venturing into the great outdoors with shifters seemed a natural thing to do. Something fun happened along the way—an entire world of friendly, interesting and involved people showed up. It’s been five years now since I discovered the Granite Lake Wolves, and from there I’ve traveled to meet their friends in Whitehorse, and beyond. I’m not ready to leave, only those particular series weren’t meant to go on any longer.
Thus I’m opening the door to the North in a new way. The Takhini Shifters are novellas set in the Granite Lake and Takhini Wolves world. Some of the heroes and heroines you’ll meet will be new, some vaguely familiar from their appearances in previous books, but you don’t have to have read the earlier books to enjoy these stand-alone stories.
In this first book, I bring you two characters who are also in DIAMOND DUST. There they are already a couple—COPPER KING explains how they got together. Writing Jim and Lillie was so much fun. I hope you enjoy reading their story as much as I enjoyed writing it!
ALSO—this is the even more exciting part—I’m releasing COPPER KING as a part of a box set with 8 other novellas! ALPHAS AFTER DARK gives you a chance to catch up on my shifter world AND try some other fabulous paranormal and contemporary books. Something for everyone for .99!! (I’ve read a few of the other stories already and OH BOY, you want this!!)
Want to hear a little more? Read on for an excerpt from COPPER KING!
Three things make billionaire Jim Halcyon’s to-do list: women, work…and more women. It’s a perfect agenda for a rich shifter who has no problem letting his inner grizzly out to play. From the bright lights of Vegas, to the sophisticated action of New York—he’s got the money and the power to do anything he wants.
Anything, except resist the lure of Lady Luck, an ancient copper coin he gambles yearly to possess. Jim is determined to regain control of the pretty penny, and damn if he’ll let any bit of eye candy distract him from his goal. Not even the mesmerizing woman in the middle of the casino floor with the shimmering hair and enormous green eyes.
With a life-changing move ahead of her, Lillie’s finagled a temporary layover en route to her future. She’s got five days to soak in new experiences, and while Vegas is too big and shiny and loud for her shy bear self, she’s eager to do this up right. It’s the last chance she’s got to let her hair down.
Until his challenge begins, Jim is more than willing to oblige Lillie’s wish for a final fling. Only Lady Luck has some twists of fate planned for them both…
Having a wolf shifter as a best friend wasn’t typical, but then neither Jim nor Damon were typical shifters. Rather than hang out with the wolf pack, Damon tended more toward the loner side of the equation. And most bears, who were better known for enjoying seclusion, didn’t understand why Jim enjoyed constantly having company around.
He liked time alone well enough, but crowds made him surprisingly happy. And women—
Because these days it always came back to the women. They were his distraction, and thus his salvation.
