Bayou Heat tour part II: The Character's Court + giveaway

The Judge sits on the bench and pounds gavel. “Order in the Court.”

The drunken female pointed a finger toward the tall, golden haired man with dark jade eye rimmed with gold standing at the podium to the right.

“Order? Bullshit.” Her voice was husky from cigarettes, her eyes blurry from gin. “There’s no order as long those...animals hold my daughter prisoner.”

The Judge arched a brow. It was hard to imagine anyone who looked less like an animal that the man with golden beauty and a silver Armani suit. Of course, there was...something in those unusual eyes. Something primal and dangerous.

“Is it true that Ashe is living in your community?” the Judge asked.
The Pantera envoy offered a reassuring smile, his potent charm making the stenographer gasp in female pleasure. 

“She came to us for help after her mother threw her out of her home.”

The Judge scowled, turning back to the older woman. “Did you toss Ashe out?”

The woman shrugged. “The bitch went and got herself pregnant. What else was I going to do? I didn’t mean for her to disappear in the swamps”

Before the judge could speak, the envoy stepped around the podium. “I assure you that Ashe and her baby are not only welcomed among us, but she is treasured. Something she’ll never receive with the woman who should have loved her above all others.”

“Hey now, that’s not fair,” the female protested. “I’m here, ain’t I? Wanting her home.”

The jade eyes slid in her direction, his expression one of disgust. “Because you need her to support you. Everyone knows your account at The Cougar’s Den has been cut off.”

The woman didn’t bother to look ashamed. “It’s her duty as my daughter to support me. Now send her home.”

The man turned back to the Judge. “Sir, she is home.”

The judge gave a slow nod, pounding his gavel on his desk. “Case dismissed.“

The fight continues in the Wildlands. Facing extinction, the Pantera have been given a miracle. A child. The first one in over fifty years. But even as they prepare to celebrate, the enemy strikes, putting at risk the fragile female who carries the hope of their people.

Charming, drop-dead gorgeous Hunter Bayon is thirsting for revenge on the enemies who slipped into the Wildlands and attacked Ashe and her vulnerable child. Pledging to track down the cowards, Bayon goes on the hunt, pursuing the humans to a nearby town. But searching their shabby hideaway, he makes a discovery that shocks him to his very soul and might very well destroy the heart of the Pantera.

Tattooed and pierced, sexy Nurturer Jean-Baptiste has been living in utter isolation. His cat is out of control, and the only thing that soothes the beast is a rare mineral he keeps inking into his skin. Until he meets her: Genevieve Burel. The beautiful and buttoned-up female puma is unlike anyone he’s ever met. She makes his cat purr, and he knows he must possess her, mate with her. But the secret she's keeping might threaten not only their unbridled passion for one another, but the very future of the Pantera race.
