Buick Cannon – Brandon Berntson

The Blurb: 

Buick Cannon is a bookshop owner in the town of Peekie, Colorado. He is also a werewolf. After stepping into a portal on his way to work, things only begin to get zany. He is being haunted by a black mansion he knows nothing about, and a strange, itchy blood lust begins to rise in his fingers.

Still, there’s no moon outside. Spaceships are chasing him. He’s drinking too much, and on top of everything else, he can’t stop imagining his fellow coworker, Christine, naked.

Buick hasn’t the slightest idea what the hell is going on, and as the local law enforcement closes is, he isn’t sure he can restrain himself. What follows is a bloody trail going back several centuries. But is that really the reason for everything, or is the reason for everything even more ridiculous than Buick can comprehend?

hardTo Trust a Wolf – Danielle Hardgrave

The Blurb: 

As an archivist in a small museum, the biggest thing Helen Jurist has to deal with each year is the Annual Donor Gala. When her museum becomes a flurry of activity, due to the nearby discovery of a large Viking hoard, Helen finds the additional responsibility more of a pain than an honour. She doesn’t know anything about Vikings, or what makes the hoard so unusual. She just wants to get through the gala without her boss catching the drapes on fire.

Nobody from the public is supposed to have access to the find, but try telling that to Rune Helsen. A handsome Dane with wolfish desires, he walks around like he owns the place. He’s Helen’s worst nightmare—if only her traitorous body wasn’t so attracted to him.

But Rune has a secret, one that brought him to see the artifacts for more than just scholarly interest. Unknown to Helen, there’s so much more at stake than just pulling off a successful evening. A whole world she never knew existed, a world of vampires and shifters, stands on the precipice—and there’s something in the Cutler Hoard that could burn it all down.
