A compilation of the first four Full Moon dating stories!
Matchmakers Stone and Harve vow to find a mate for even the toughest to match shifter or vampire. New Moon includes four novellas featuring werewolves, vampires, and were-kitties searching for their other halves, no matter how challenging.
Aiden and Ben: After these wolves get together, Aiden doubts he’s found his match. Ben knows better, but can he convince Aiden to stay?
Coy and Denver: City wolf Coy isn’t sure he wants to give up control. Denver is just the vamp to give Coy what he needs, but their match creates a whole new set of problems for the dating agency.
Evgeny and Feng: Tiger Evgeny worries his sheer size and strength turns off most lovers. Snow leopard Feng is an acrobat used to working without a net, but when he disappears Evgeny doesn’t know if he can close the distance between them soon enough to help.
Gage and Hamish: Gage is an impossible bottom. No one can tame this cat, but bear shifter and effortless Top Hamish is certainly willing to try.
Harve and Stone hope their success rate is 100%, but the path to true love is never easy.
“Full Moon Dating. Have you tried our online site? Yes, I’m afraid you do have to go through the screening process. Really? I’ll be sure to tell 911 when I call them, you sick fuck.” The phone in the outer office slammed down with the musical jingle only an old rotary phone could make.
Very privately, Stone thought that was why Adelia had chosen that phone, and the very film noir detective office vibe she’d used to decorate her domain. It went with the pencil skirt and high-waisted blouse fashion statement she chose every day as well.
She appeared at his door, her victory roll (she had informed him they were called that when he referred to them as “those curly things”) hairdo just slightly mussed, signaling agitation. “Okay, I’m going to start sending the nutbag wannabe paranormals to you, boss. That guy wanted to date a vampire, so he could be a serial killer without actually having to kill someone.”
Stone sat back in his chair and raised a brow. “You’re way meaner than me, Ades. You deal with them so well.”
“There are some crazy bastards out there, boss.” He could almost see her tail, white-tipped and fuzzy, twitching.
“I know. That’s why this business is going to boom.” Stone grinned, tickled as hell that they had an office and a website. Now they just needed to facilitate their first couple, so they could get some testimonials.
Adelia gave him the hairy eyeball and then shook her head. “So, when do you want to go over the sheets?”
“Let’s look at them for an hour or so tonight. I’ve already run the points of comparison database.” They had stuff in their questionnaire that those other match and mingle sites didn’t have. Lots of stuff.
Between his business and marketing savvy and Harve’s computer and psych training, they had a winner, right?
“You got it, boss. I think I already have a couple of good dates in mind.” She waggled her brows.
“I bet they’re gay,” he murmured. Adelia was obsessed with the idea of two men together. That was why she worked for him.
“You think?” She flipped him off, playfully.
“Well, put them at the top of the pile.”
“Top of the pile for Mr. City Wolf and Mr. Country Wolf.”
“Oh, man.” He chuckled. “Tell me why they’re a match?”
“A little red wolf photographer from Dallas who’s had ‘bad luck with long-term commitment’ and a huge gray from up north looking for someone to ‘make his mate.’ It’s perfect.”
“Really?” He grabbed the folders she handed him and flipped through them. “Uh, little red is not into spanking.”
She snorted. “He’s stressed out and overworked. He might like it.”
“We have to match them based on actual interests.” Maybe he’d ask Harve.
“We’re a dating service!” He was trying hard not to smile. Harve was the psychologist slash computer geek. Adelia was the psychic. He was pretty damned sure of it.
“And we’re run by an incredibly observant business magnate.”
“Indeed.” He shook his head at her. “You’re such a freak.”
“Yeah, but I’m your freak and you adore me.”
“I do.” He gave her a fond grin before she trotted back out front to answer the phone, her heels clicking. Stone stared at the two folders on the top of the pile. The more he thought about the cowboy wolf from Wyoming who liked to top and the fussy little red from Dallas, the more he liked it.
Maybe he’d skip Harve altogether.
Stone picked up the phone and dialed the number in folder one. “Hello, Aiden Underhill? This is the Full Moon Dating site manager. You’re our grand prize winner this month. You’ve won an all-expenses paid trip to Jackson Hole.”
