When the beast awakens, will Sam be able to accept the reality of what she is, and the past she has long denied? As deceptions unravel and masks are torn away, only a truth that threatens to destroy them all remains.
Look Back in Anger is a paranormal romance with shifters and zombies and lethal spray cheese!"She’d never thought of herself as unwell. Not in the way he seemed to be implying. Maybe she’d never quite felt whole, never quite felt complete or content with her life, but that wasn't the same as unwell. She’d filled her life with work, with animals, with machines to distract from what was missing, that intangible something she’d never been able to put a name to.Arles. Arles was its name."
Sam can't remember much of being a child, but the scraps of memory she clings to all hold the same terror—Arles Colfter. Now he's blackmailing her, threatening her elderly father, and forcing her to face a past long buried. Plus she's pretty sure he's a baby-eating werewolf.
In this urban fantasy novel, all SynthPet technician Samantha wants is to live quietly with her herd of cats and one-eared dog, but when Arles kidnaps her, she’s forced to unravel a thorny tangle of truth and lies, or risk being dragged down the rabbit hole into Arles's world of intrigue, gun-toting vigilantes, and...zombies.
After a run-in with a rude synthpet client that leaves her in tears, the last thing Sam needs is to get called down to her ailing father’s office…yet again. When it’s her vicious step-brother from hell who greets her, only to make her an offer no good daughter could refuse, she has to seriously reevaluate her definition of a bad day.
From the moment she enters Arles’s car, Sam knows she’s lost control of the situation. With his keen talent for blackmail, escape isn't an option. To make matters worse, when his odd family drops in unannounced, Sam begins to realize that Arles isn’t just an obsessive jerk, but might also be a human trafficker who deals in the acquisition and sale of children.
Arles has wanted—needed—his sweet step-sister in his life for far too long, and now he’s finally found a way to get her. Of course it means making her hate him first, but what else is new?
Of Course Arles’s uncle Vincent and his lapdog Zakai have also picked the worst time possible to drop in demanding favors. What was supposed to be some casual backup in dealing with Sam’s sleazy father has become a full-on side mission that the team is determined to drag him into. Any other time he’d be thrilled—well, okay, not exactly thrilled—to help Vincent and the team with their “hero” hobby, but Sam is already suspicious, and with one false move, he could lose her forever.
