DescriptionThoughts of Chase, the Alpha of the Black Meadows pack, made her heart torpedo in her chest and rockets go off in her stomach. The better-than-a-sundae delicious-looking man with golden brown skin, enough muscles he could share them with his friends and still have left over, turned her to a puddle of goo.
The man had so much sex appeal her girl parts were ready to lift a white flag in surrender just by looking at him, even thinking of him made her tongue wag. Looking at him was like viewing a shot of your favorite dessert and knowing you couldn’t get your hands on it.
She’d done it.
Sophia stared at the computer screen and couldn’t believe her eyes. Number and letter sequences in front of her drove her excitement. A slow sliver of fear raced up her spine when she thought of what could happen if the information got into the wrong hands, but it wasn’t enough to stop her from smiling ear to ear.
She’d finally singled out the particular chromosome in the DNA strand that made shape-shifters shift. This little baby was the hottest ticket in Shifterville. It’s what bonded with the rest of a person’s DNA and created the furry beast that lived inside them.
If it were a person she’d kiss it, hug it, probably spank it for being bad and making it so hard for her to find it. She grinned; she couldn’t help herself. Julia would be able to have a choice in life now after being attacked by a rogue werewolf the previous year.
The one positive outcome was that her sister had met River, the beta of his pack and her current husband. Talk about love at first bark. His animal had taken one look at her sister and had literally rolled over for her to pet his tummy. It was sweet and kind of creepy, considering how damn big he was in his wolf form.
River was a real nice guy too, but nothing beat freedom of choice in Sophia’s mind. He loved her sister and treated her better than any other man she’d ever been with, not to mention the man was absolutely gorgeous. Then there was his brother, the pack alpha.

Most writers will tell you that a book is NOT written in a day. We sometimes have this awesome idea in our heads and just start writing to get it on paper. I may start a book before I even write the outline. That’s how badly I want to write. So sometimes mistakes happen.
One of the mistakes I made through Sharp Change (I noticed this BEFORE I submitted) was that I kept forgetting my heroine’s eye color. In one scene she gray and in other areas it was light or dark brown. When I went back to read through it I was like ‘OMG she’s got a rainbow in her sockets!’ It made me laugh and freak. I now wondered what else I didn’t realize was multi-color.
Another mistake I made was call her Sofia. Her name is Sophia. But the Latina in me kept changing it to Sofia. Don’t know why, but I had Sophia and Sofia all over the place. My sister noticed this one. She asked me if my heroine had multiple personalities. LOL. I asked why and she said because I kept referring to her in two different names.
And the last mistake I will admit to is leaving a big BLANK when I couldn’t remember what word I wanted to use. Then when I went through the story I found all these BLANK spots and had to try to figure out what the heck I was trying to say. LOL. It made for some interesting reading.
