Novella (Gator-man #1)

One year ago, during Mardi Gras, Ash Turner was pulled from the arms of his lover, Jamie Derouen, by men working for her father. Those men drove Ash into the bayou, shot him in the back of the head, and left his corpse for the alligators. So it comes as a surprise to everyone–including Ash–when he wakes up in the muddy water of the bayou and walks back into New Orleans.

Mardi Gras is once again underway, but Ash isn’t there for the parades or the parties. He’s looking for Jamie. Nothing else seems important any more.

At the same time, though, there are forces looking for him. A police detective interested in a growing pile of missing persons cases. The men who thought they had killed Ash already. And something else. Something unseen that watches Ash from the swamp.

Under the last Full Moon of summer, in the Overlap of Worlds, the Red Moon Faire opens its gates.

Lupe Garcia has never heard of the Red Moon Faire. All she knows is her dream of being a dog and chasing rabbits around Spring Hollow has turned out to be all too real. She has no idea how to change back into her normal girl shape, and now the ghost of a saber-toothed tiger with only one tusk is chasing her through the sleeping neighborhood, roaring at her to return his missing tooth.

Eluding the ghost, Lupe stumbles into the Overlap and the Faire. She’s still a dog, but the Faire doesn’t care. Everyone–and everything–is welcome at the Red Moon Faire: six-foot-tall intelligent rabbits, tiny Elvs, lizardmen in business suits, and much more.

But there are also shadows at the Faire, and snares for the unwary. And a prisoner desperate to escape–even if the attempt puts Lupe in harm’s way…
