What the book has to say:
Chia Petit, town manager, may be a bit eccentric, but the town of Charming, Alaska is still thankful for her nonetheless.
With six ghosts - the demons of past transgressions - as her constant companions, keeping the town of Charming safe and law-abiding should be her only worries. Not so. When Hung Durand, ultra-sexy bounty hunter and shape shifter extraordinaire comes to town, all bets are off.
The sharpshooting gal is prepared for battle, the likes of which neither Hung nor Red Mountainbear, a blowhard conservative from Fairbanks, has ever experienced. Her mission is to keep the peaceful, shape shifter refuge out of the clutches of those that would just as soon destroy it as they would mine it to fatten their wallets.
Will Chia lose her town to those who with dollar signs clouding their judgment or will her undeniable attraction to Hung distract her efforts?
What I have to say:
Chia Petit is the Charming Alaska town manager and when ultra-sexy bounty hunter Hung Durand arrives back in town, this sharpshooting gal is prepared for battle which is a good thing because somebody’s out to steal her town in this offbeat paranormal fantasy.
Eccentric is a very good word to describe Chia, she’s got some very unusual quirks and annoying habits but when this charismatic woman decides to take charge that’s just what she’ll do and the reader can’t help but get lost in this humorous and exciting story as she sets out to save her town. All the characters in the story are peculiar in their own charming ways and demand attention and the fast pace keeps readers on their toes with lots of suspense, excitement, humor and romance.
Tension and expectation builds throughout the story as the danger to shifters escalates and some weird magic seems to take over the town and let’s not forget the sexual tension that spices up the story every time Chia comes in contact with Hung. The well written scenes paint vivid images that capture the imagination while the well-orchestrated events ensure that the reader has to know what happens next.
The author has created a bizarre but fascinating little town with some very unusual elements and characters and while I was concerned that I wasn’t going to like Chia very much at the beginning, she soon charmed me, had me chuckling and cheering her on, so I can’t wait to visit Charming Alaska again and find out what happens next.
