Eleri Stone is a RITA-nominated author of paranormal and fantasy romance. Born and raised in New Jersey, she now lives in Iowa with her husband and their three children. All of her stories have some element of speculative fiction and they all end with a happily-ever-after.
Jane Fisher escaped Scraper crime boss Gideon Moore with only the clothes on her back. What he took from her can never be replaced, but her new home at Fort Dougan is the first safe one she’s known. Or was, until the remaining supply of serum was stolen, flown high into the mountains on Gideon’s command. Serving as Lyle’s guide through Scraper territory means revisiting her own personal hell, but it’s also an opportunity—for closure or revenge, Jane isn’t quite sure.
Beautiful, proud and haunted, Jane is a temptation Lyle’s worked hard to avoid. The mountains are the last place she needs to be. But if Jane can find the courage to face down a man like Gideon for the sake of the fort, no force on earth will keep Lyle from her side.
GUN SHY has lots of adventure with gunslingers, robber barons, and daring airship rescues, but at heart, it's a sweet and sexy friends to lovers story. It's Book Two in the Reaper series, but if the winner would rather have Book One, REAPER'S TOUCH, or any of my other books, that's completely fine with me. THE ADVENTURES OF CASSIUS FLYNN AND MOLLY MCGUIRE (Reaper 1.5) can be read for free here.
