Secret Shapeshifters and Hot Romance by Linda O. Johnston

by Linda O. Johnston, author of Guardian Wolf (Harlequin Nocturne, August 2011)

Alpha Force is back!

That’s my miniseries for Harlequin Nocturne that features a covert military unit of shapeshifters.  The third book in the series, GUARDIAN WOLF, is an August 2011 release.  As you can tell, the shapeshifters are wolves.

In addition, two new Alpha Force Nocturne Bites will be published soon: HAWK’S CHALLENGE, in October 2011, followed, in November, by COUGAR’S CONQUEST.  I’m sure you can guess what the shifters change into in both of those stories!

Let me tell you a bit about GUARDIAN WOLF, since it’s available now.  It’s a reunion story, and of course it’s a romance.  And it’s all about shapeshifting wolves.

In it, Dr. Simon Parran, an infectious diseases specialist working at a military hospital in Arizona, is not exactly thrilled when he is asked to show another, newly-arrived infectious diseases specialist around the facility–because she is Dr. Grace Andreas, a military officer, whom Simon happened to know back in medical school.  He’d fallen for her, enjoyed sexual encounters he’ll never forget, but she had been awfully inquisitive, demanding that he admit to being a shapeshifter.  He admitted no such thing–even though it was true.  But due to some murders in his family years before, he knew far better than to let a non-shifter know the truth about him.  In fact, after only a short time, he changed schools.

But Grace had suspected that Simon was a shifter because she was one, too!  Now a member of the highly covert military unit Alpha Force, she has been assigned to investigate thefts of biohazardous materials at this hospital.  She didn’t know Simon was there.  But her reunion with him is bittersweet.

Their former sexual attraction is still there, as hot as ever–and irresistible.  And both of them can shift at times other than the full moon, Grace because of the special Alpha Force elixir, and Simon because of a medication he has developed himself that has some exciting qualities not found in the Alpha Force concoction.  Does each discover the other’s secret shifting abilities?  Well, you can guess, but you can also find out by reading Alpha Force–and also how they both help to foil the biohazard thieves.

Oh, and Alpha Force has at least one more story to be told in addition to the two upcoming Bites.

Are you a fan of shapeshifters?  Military ones?  Don’t you think it would be fun to have a real special ops unit of shapeshifters?

Of course, who’s to say there isn’t already one…?
