Magical Pistachio Macarons by Donna Kunkel is a Christmas and Holiday Festival pick #holidayreads

Title: Magical Pistachio Macarons

Author: Donna Kunkel

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Book Blurb:

Victoria, a rich, shapeshifter wizard, uses her cat form to spy and gather evidence on those intent on breaking the law. Once the DA has her evidence and files charges, she exposes the criminals in a series of newspaper articles. She hates how these people continually evade the law by buying off witnesses or making the evidence disappear. Especially the vile man she’s currently investigating.

Dragon, a bodyguard from wizarding security, tackles Victoria out of the way of an attempted hit-and-run. He and her roommate confront her about the threatening notes she’s been receiving. He’d like to take her away to a safe house, but she has other plans. How can he protect her when she refuses to take the danger seriously? Will they manage to work together before it’s too late?

Even magic can’t keep her safe…can he?


She pawed at the crack beside the den’s door. The bane of her existence eased open a little. Her reflection shone in the polished glass; a black feline of the house-cat variety stared back. A tight squeeze and the door eased open, revealing her quarry. She slid into the room, refusing to allow herself to gaze at any of the occupants. If I look directly at someone, I could draw attention to myself. Tonight, she couldn’t risk taking any chances. She slunk along the edge of the wall and hid behind one of the Santiagos’ many potted palms. These bushy, tropical plants gave her unlimited places to hide.

Now safely tucked away, she scanned the room’s occupants. Tonight, I have to get enough evidence to have Santiago arrested. The disgusting pig.

“Someone is lying. I will find out.” The man nearest the fire, Santiago, whirled to face the group of assembled men and slammed his fist down on the mantel. “You know I will.”

“But boss…we’d never spill. We know that’s a death sentence,” a man hidden in one of the tall chairs said.
