MacKenzie can't help but be a rebel. She was born one. A poor excuse for a wereleopard, she can't shift, she can't heal, she can't hunt like the others. She escapes all that, though, becomes a fugitive, and spends the next forty years hiding as a civilian amongst humans. But a girl's gotta eat. Inevitably, life takes a turn when she's caught infringing on the wrong female's territory. With an irresistible price on her head, Mac's estranged father sends in his trusted friend and werehunter, Ramone. Mission: rescue. Except, she puts up a mean game of cat and mouse. Understandable when crude genetics have been the kick me sign of her existence. MacKenzie lives, eats, and breathes mistrust, yet she watches this male defend her at every turn. In her darkest hour, Ramone's sacrifices add up. And when an unresolved family debt ties Mac to imminent death, his loyalty kws bounds.
Dina Haynes has a wicked sense of humor, which explains why most of her stories are dark in comparison. This balance suits the card-carrying Libra well. Her interest in Romance sparked while exchanging fan fiction stories with her college BFF. Fan fiction wasn't even a term back then, and the friendship didn't last forever (those damn F words). But the stories...they kept coming. Years went by before she wrote her first novel, taking the word literally and using actual pen and paper. According to her exaggerated recollection, she punched a rebellious fist in the air and said, I don't need no stinkin' computer! Soon enough reality set in. She got her first laptop and began making the career you see today.
