Got Trouble?

Cary Redmond sure does. This time with a particularly sexy leopard shifter who seems to think she’s his mate, a faery mentor who’s suddenly made himself scarce, and an ancient demon searching for a mysterious, mystical source of power in the forest outside of town. Throw in a vulnerable kid for her to keep safe and it’s just another day in the life of Portland’s resident Protector—save the innocent, manage her private life, keep all hell from breaking loose, and try not to die.

Easy, right?

Oh boy.

Trouble Returns…

And Cary Redmond is once again up to her neck in it. When her supposed mate and possible boyfriend needs her help protecting shifter kids, she’s more than happy to dive in. Discovering ghouls behaving badly and a necromancer in need of protection launches her into the first mission of her seventh year as a Protector, a year she has to survive without help in order to come into her full powers.

But what with the serial killer on the loose, a mysterious wizard trying to kill her, a demon god, and a faery mentor acting really weird, who needs help, right?

It’s just a day in the life of a Protector, and another chance for Cary to keep all hell from breaking loose.

Trouble Takes a Holiday…

Though for Cary Redmond, meeting her shifter boyfriend’s mother for the first time doesn’t feel much like a vacation. Dealing with Deacon’s gorgeous ex-girlfriend, his complicated family, the truth about who he really is, her faery mentor’s emotional declarations, and the troublesome conflict escalating between the leopards and the cougars just adds spice to an already interesting month.

Cary’s used to surviving in the midst of chaos and impending preternatural wars. The real trick will be surviving Deacon’s protective mother who just happens to be the Queen of the Leopards.

Life in Cary’s seventh year as a Protector just keeps getting more interesting.

And more deadly.

Short Stories and Novellas

WHEN CARY MET JAXER (A Cary Redmond Short Story)
See how it all began. When Cary Met Jaxer.

When Cary met Jaxer, her life changed forever. Not that she wasn’t already looking for a change. But still. Rethinking her career goals is one thing. Finding out the world is a lot spookier than she knew, quite another.

Cary never intends to jump head first into that strange, new world. But for a soft hearted animal lover, there are just some things she can’t allow. And seeing a poor little Labrador puppy taking abuse from a huge man pushes her beyond her tolerance…right into one of the scariest moments of her life.

And the beginnings of a new adventure she may not survive.


WHEN CARY MET PICKLES (A Cary Redmond Short Story)

A new job, a new house, a new demon dog… And so much to learn.

Cary Redmond has a lot of study ahead of her if she wants to survive her new job as a magical Protector. Study means books. And books mean spending time in a bookstore—something she will never object to. However, the place her mentor sends her isn’t an ordinary bookstore. And the clientele are more than what they seem.

But with the help of The Bookstore’s proprietor and the resident basset hound, Cary is sure she can navigate this new world without getting eaten by anything.



WHEN CARY MET MARIANNE (A Cary Redmond Short Story)

All women need more pockets in their clothes…

Except Cary Redmond has found in her new job as a magical Protector standard pockets do not hold up to the abuse. After losing her keys—again—she seeks the help of a friend from her pre-Protector life. Marianne is an animal lover, a devoted fan of 80s music, agrees wholeheartedly that pineapple does not belong on pizza, and best of all, is a seamstress.

Their friendship was meant to be.

But there is more to Marianne than meets the eye. And in this new world of magic and mayhem, Cary is learning everybody really does want to rule the world.


WHEN CARY MET LUCY (A Cary Redmond Short Story)

In Cary Redmond’s life as a Protector, magic does not always cause the mayhem…

Running into the darkness under a bridge is not the sort of thing an ordinary woman should do late at night. But for Cary Redmond, it’s just part of her job as a magical Protector. And frankly, after the not-so-fun dinner with her parents, charging into danger to rescue the innocent seems like a good idea. Almost as good as the donut she was going to have before her Protector senses went off.

What she discovers in those midnight shadows, however, changes her perspective completely on women running into the darkness under a bridge. And sets the stage for a brand new friendship.


WHEN CARY MET ANGIE (A Cary Redmond Short Story)

For Cary Redmond, sometimes the mayhem really is all about the magic…

After only a few months as a Protector, Cary’s got the basics of the job down. Get between the good guy and the bad guy. Good guy survives. Everyone’s happy. Except the bad guy, of course, but they don’t really count.

Introduce magic into that equation, however, and Cary knows she’s out of her league. A magic problem needs a magic solution. And while the super powerful witch who comes to her aid isn’t exactly what Cary expects, she’ll take all the help she can get. She might even survive the night, with a little help from her newest friend.


CARY AND DEACON (TRY TO) GO ON A DATE (A Cary Redmond Short Story)

Going on an ordinary date should not be this tough…

Despite knowing each other for two months, and surviving more than one dangerous adventure together, Cary Redmond and her leopard shifter mate have never managed a regular date. A first date.
An event which carries a significance that unnerves Cary. How can she be this worried about going to a movie with a man she’s fought demons with? And seen naked.
But of course, for Portland’s resident Protector, even the simple things in life prove complicated. And when someone needs her help, Cary doesn’t dare avoid her job…even on a date.

There may be some spoilers for the main series, though this story is made to be a standalone.
