Pay It Forward Friday is my way of thanking authors who have done something that has helped me either personally or professionally in some way in the past years. Some I’ve only met online, some at conferences, and some have become long-term friends. Others may not even know what they did, or even who I am, but at some point they said or posted something that helped me or inspired me in some way.
They have no idea they are being featured here; I’ve secretly gone to their website and gathered their information. I hope you’ll look up their books and support them by buying a book (or a whole series) because they’re not only great authors but great people too!
I doubt Michelle realizes how long I’ve stalked admired her. When I first discovered ebooks, Michelle was one of the first authors I found. I can’t remember exactly how I found her anymore, it was back around 2006 or so, but I loved her Dragon Lords. I bought them and glommed them up and then I went and bought her Lords of Var too. And it hasn’t stopped since. That was really before social media was around, but when I found her on Twitter and Facebook I made sure that I stalked followed her. I’ve since joined a group she and Mandy Roth run online and, like Mandy, Michelle has shared some tremendous information and been so supportive, not just of me but a whole community of authors. So here’s my simple way of sending her my thanks…
(And kudos to Michelle for having a media kit and an up-to-date website that made it SO easy for me to cull her information!)

A Dragon Lords Romance
This Book features a Var (Cat-Shifter)
Catshifter Prince Rafe knows that technically he’s supposed to be going to Earth to find a bride, but he doesn’t see the need to rush things. While his dragon-shifter neighbors appear all too eager to claim their mates and settle down, he’s all for putting that final moment off and enjoying his little trips through the portal. Yeah, yeah, eventually he’ll have to marry and set a good example for his people because on his planet females are rare and they need to have children and blah blah blah. But honestly, catshifters are known to embrace their feral side and it would take a very impressive female to tame his.
Then he sees Jenna Kearney and all bets are off.
About the Series
Captured by a Dragon-Shifter is a modern day prequel series installment to those first books. They take place long before the princes you know and love ever found their mates, long before The Dragon’s Queen, in a time when the dragonshifters and catshifters actually—wait for it—liked each other and hung out as friends. They also don’t have Galaxy Brides to bring them women. What they do have is the old portal that they used to escape Earth. There’s no one left to marry on the planet and things are starting to get desperate.
