One tiger villain + one curvy assassin + a baby no one could expect = Mafia shifter love story that's too hot to handle!

River Royce is a weretiger feared by all of Chicago. As the head of the most powerful criminal organization in the city, everyone walks a tight line around him. But things just don't feel... right to River. Struggling to get out of the shadow of his father, he'd never thought he'd end up right in his shoes. And when he decides to finish a loose end left by one of his lieutenants, he could have never expected that he might find the solution to all his problems. One little issue though? Said solution is in the form of a beautiful, dangerous woman... who wants him dead.

Kate Walker is a woman on the run from her past. With heartbreak behind her, as well as plenty of enemies, she's decided to start a new life far from Chicago. But old habits die hard and when the most irritating, self-absorbed and incredibly hot shifter kidnaps her mid-job, she's just about ready to lose her icy cool. If he only weren't so impossibly... impossible, he'd be a lot easier to hate! One stolen moment is all they needed and after that, their fates are bound together by an unborn child.

River won't bring a new soul into a life of crime, and with his father insisting on an arranged marriage, and his brother trying to sic his organization on him, River has more battles to fight than he could have ever imagined. Good thing he has one of the most capable women in the world by his side...

Now if he could only convince her that he isn't out to kill her, maybe all of this could actually work out? Or maybe not...

Purrks of the Job is a full novel with a guaranteed HEA, no cheating and plenty of steam. If you like your shifters Alpha as hell and your women willing to fight for what's right, and sometimes even for what's wrong, this is just the book for you. It can and should be read as a standalone.


River Royce is the boss of the Crimson Claws.  A mob of shifters,  mainly tigers that run the underworld in Chicago.  Recently he has lost many of his lieutenants to assassins and traitors. He has now got a lead on one particular assassin.  She is hiding in a different city,  so he is going to get her himself.  If you want a job done properly, do it yourself.  
Kate Walker is an assassin.  After taking out several members of the Crimson Claws she decided she better leave Chicago.  Having the dangerous tiger shifters out to kill her is not healthy.  A girl has to make a living though, so she is still a contract killer. 
This is such an exciting romantic suspense.  The action never stops.   Lots of violence and some smoking hot sex.  You will not want to put this down once you start,  so get the glass of wine and nibbles ready and chuck out the husband.  I love every book in this series.  They don't need to be read in order,  but this one should be last. 


Anya Nowlan loves growly bears, hot sex and writing about both. The sexier and naughtier the better. She mostly writes paranormal and fantasy novellas and novels, focusing on shifters and their lucky mates. Her stories are often bite-sized, just what you need to soothe that craving for brave women and strong alphas with a big side-order of some smuttiness.

Anya lives in Boston with her boyfriend and several dogs of varying sizes and levels of mischief. She can't go through a day without chocolate and has an unhealthy addiction to purses, but every girl is allowed her little vices, right?

Rory Dale has always loved big burly men and fairytales. Though life is sometimes tough, Rory likes to tuck herself away with a hot, raunchy book and life the life of fantasy and make the hardships taste that much sweeter. That’s what started her on the path to writing as well – the need to share her own little dreams with others! It just so happens that these dreams include plenty of hot men, heartwrenching conflicts and sizzling, pantymelting sex!

Rory lives in Colorado with a cat, a grouchy goldfish and a stack of books so high it’s sometimes hard to determine where the room ends and the books begin. There isn’t a handsome bear of a man in her life yet but until he shows up, she’s just going to write about her dream man until he steps in the door one day!
