Meet Sera. Journalist. Outcast. Firestarter.
Heat Up the Night...Heed the Call.
Gossip mag reporter Sera Benenati knows a thing or two about unearthing secrets...and burying them. As an unregistered supernatural, her freedom depends on keeping her fire-wielding abilities contained. Yet the threat of a little flame isn't enough to snuff out her journalistic pursuits. She's determined to claw her way to the top and land a spot with a real paper.
When she tracks a lead on a string of gruesome paranormal murders to the small town of Buckhorn, Arizona, she's certain she's landed the perfect scoop. But as the crime scene reveals victims with bite marks, torn flesh, and battered bodies, Sera may have smoked out more than she can burn. As the investigation grows hot and Sera winds up in the crosshairs, she'll need the help of a sexy shifter, special agent Talon Rede, to unmask the murderers before she becomes the next victim.
"A cast of vampires, psychics, and shape-shifters delivers...witty quips that round out this solid example of the genre." - PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY ★★★★★
Moss's debut, a near-future tale of paranormal humans living under the repressive Northern American United Government, chugs steadily along with occasional fireworks. Sera Benenati is an ambitious young reporter with a secret. Determined to get a big break that will let her leave gossip magazines behind, she stumbles on more than she expects while investigating a mysterious murder. When she's attacked by a mob of humanoid flesh-eating monsters, Sera (who is disconcertingly more focused on saving her cute sandals than on saving her own life) risks outing herself as having illegal powers. But her talent for pyrotechnics is a plus when she finds herself falling for Talon Rede, the hunky, temperamental shape-shifting head of her district's paranormal crimes division. Torn between chasing her story and accepting the sexy prospect of his protective custody, Sera also has to delve into her past to find the origin of her supernatural powers. A cast of vampires, psychics, and shape-shifters delivers moderately witty quips that round out this solid example of the genre.
