Not Even A Mouse: A Christmas Shifter Story


Katherine "Kat" Strudwick convinces herself this Christmas will be like all the other ones before it where she is stuck in the middle of the hell of purgatory that is unrequited love. At twenty-four, she avoids the object of her affection by remaining in her shifter form—a feather-tailed glider. She has no idea this Christmas is going to be different from all the others.

Declan Garrett is a man who knows who he is and what he wants. He’s known for several years Kat is his mate, but rather than pursuing her, he honoured his best friend’s request to wait. As a scientific researcher, he knows all about the value of patience.

This Christmas, Declan is ready to show Kat that they belong together by courting her polar bear shifter style.

The gifts are purchased. His plans are set. Now he can only hope the little mouse doesn’t lead him on too long of a chase.

Grasmere Cottage Mystery


Join bestselling author Dahlia Donovan on a cosy mystery adventure in Grasmere Cottage Mystery trilogy. With love, wit, and a murder to solve, life for Valor and Bishan is about to get bloomin' complicated in this sweet gay romance series.

Dead bodies showing up? Check.

Killer on the loose? Check.

Time running out on them? Not good.

The nightmare begins with one dead former schoolmate.

Valor Scott wants nothing more than to enjoy life in his little cottage with his boyfriend, Bishan Tamboli, an autistic musician. The shadows of a serial killer continue to haunt them, though. He only wants the living nightmare to end. They battle one catastrophic event after the other, intent on bringing their loved ones through to the other side safely.

Bishan's fought hard for his independence as an autistic and refuses to throw it all away because of a nameless monster hidden amongst their former classmates. With friends and family in the killer’s crosshairs, he fears the mystery will bring the end of everything and everyone he loves.

They can’t help wondering how far the body count will rise before they manage to stop the killer.

When their killer finally comes out into the open, they find themselves face-to-face with an obsessed murderer intent on destroying everyone in their path.

“That is a body.” Valor stared stupidly out the window over the sink where he’d been rinsing his coffee mug, his hazel eyes glued to the obviously dead man at the corner of their garden. He dragged his fingers shakily through his mussed-up red hair. “Bish?”

“Yes, it is.” Bishan joined him with their fawn-coloured, long-haired cat, Staccato, perched on his shoulder, playing with his wavy inky hair.

“That’s a dead body in our garden.” He risked a glance at his long-time boyfriend to find him mesmerised by the sight. “I mean, it’s a corpse.”

“Very astute of you. Very. Astute. Quite astute. Incredibly so, actually.” Bishan had a tendency to repeat words when he enjoyed the way they sounded to him. He claimed it was one of his many autistic superpowers. “Ahhh—stute.”

“Yes, I grasp the concept. Why’s a body in our rose bushes?” Valor carefully set the mug into the sudsy water, drying his hands off on his jeans and ignoring the indignant huff from Bishan. “Right. I’ll call the police, and you put Staccato in the bedroom.”

Their cat enjoyed climbing up on anyone who came into their cottage. Valor didn’t think the local constables would appreciate their uniforms being covered by their feline’s orange-sherbet-tinted hair. She also loved to disappear into the garden, something that wouldn’t be helpful either.

“Why are you calling the police?” Bishan had his phone out already.

“They hate you.” Valor fumbled with his iPhone for a second.

“Only because I set fire to cotton wool. And they think I’m a terrorist.” Bishan shuddered, obviously thinking about the offensive white fluff balls that he hated with a passion. “Val? It’s a body. Out there. In our garden.”

“Maybe stop looking at it?”
