Title: The Good Griffin
Author: J. C. McKenzie
Genre: Paranormal Romance
He’s a good griffin, with a bad temper…
Damian Charming yearns to sweep a certain feisty lynx shifter off her feet. Every time he tries to talk to her, however, he sticks his foot in his mouth. He doesn't mean to sound condescending. Life would be easier if Lucy admitted he knows best, especially now that someone in town has threatened her. He’s a good griffin (mostly) until someone messes with what’s his.
She’s an unlucky lynx with no time for trouble
Lucy May hates Stillwater detective Damian Charming. Sure, he helped her with a horrible situation and has looks to rival the gods, but he also views lynx shifters as inferior supernatural beings. When someone targets the business she worked hard to create, though, Lucy turns to the one man she knows will mercilessly unearth the culprit.
It’s more than just hex appeal…
When a hex sends the town in a storm of sexual shenanigans in the middle of the investigation, Lucy realizes just how bad she has it for the griffin. Now she needs to convince Damian her feelings are true and reel him in before his need for vengeance destroys the entire town.
The books in That Old Black Magic world and the Heart’s Desired Mate series can be read as standalone stories and in any order.
Damian pulled his griffin energy tightly around him, a muscular ball of barely contained rage. The air sucked from the room. The lights flickered. One word. One wrong move and he’d unleash the menacing power.
“Woah,” Tanner said, muscles tense.
So did the customers, who pulled back and jumped out of the way as if a freight train barreled toward them instead of a Stillwater detective.
Mateo must’ve told him about the window the second he left the coffee shop. Traitor.
She wiped her hands on her pants and tugged her shirt down. Breathe. Just breathe.
“Lucy,” Damian growled through clenched teeth.
“Damian.” She lifted her chin. He couldn’t intimidate her. She had nothing else to hide, and certainly nothing to be ashamed of. Well, except for contaminating evidence and not calling the vandalism in. After Mateo got through scolding her, she had to admit it was a pretty dumb move.
“Why didn’t you call it in?” he dropped his voice.
Like rats scrambling from a sinking ship, everyone in the café bottlenecked to escape through the front door.
Tanner followed close behind. “I’m taking my break,” he called over his shoulder.
Lucy narrowed her eyes. Deserter.
“Lucy,” Damian snarled.
The front door shut, leaving them alone.
