IT’S RAINE DELIGHT!
Amidst a beautiful backdrop of snow-capped mountains and glistening glaciers in the forest, the three hostesses groan and moan, trying to keep up with all the work the Wolf Shifter Oliver has lined up for them. Teeth chattering, fingers numb and toes frost bitten, they trip and fall, fumbling with drinks, appetizers and trays of food.
Sick to death of their moaning and groaning, the Wolf Shifter Oliver glares at them, a plan formulating in his head. To get them to help prepare the feast, there is only one thing to do. Grinning, bearing his fangs, he snaps his fingers and a whip appears in his hand. The girls gasp, their breaths coming out blue.
Mary passes out cold, her bubble butt smacking the forest floor with a resounding thud. In her clumsiness, she knocks Sharon down. Although feather light and barely making a sound with her petite form, Sharon manages to hurl into Lyn, latching onto her hair as they tumble down in a heap. The hostesses shrieking cause the warbling hoot owls to screech in protest, wings flapping as they run for cover. The hostesses hiss and spit like cats as they sit on the floor of the forest, big scowls on their flaming red faces, blue lips snarling as they fume.
Sick to death of them, Oliver snaps his hands and a ring of fire appears like magic. Too stunned to do anything but gape, the now mute hostesses stare at Oliver in wonder. In a trance, Sharon, Lyn and Mary stand up, awed at the magic of the moment. With a snap of his fingers, the Wolf Shifter Oliver commands each to jump through the hoop. He points at Sharon. “You, first.”
With a gulp, Sharon takes a running leap through the ring of fire, coming through the other side a lion. Gaining her metal of courage, she growls a robust roar that reverberates through the forest. Next the Wolf Shifter points at Lyn. Mary slaps her hard on the butt to get her moving, anxious for the show to get rolling. With a whoop, Lyn takes the leap, coming out on the other side a tiger. Testing her new vocals, she lets loose with a fierce growl that rumbles through the forest. Mary is next. Not wanting to be left behind, she takes a running leap, coming through as a burly bear. Joining her shift sisters, she erupts with a loud growl. The hostesses run off through the forest to do their chores, hand in hand, singing a chorus of “Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!”
An hour later, it’s show time. From the flaming coals, Oliver removes steaming platters of lasagna and bubbling pots of cappuccino. There’s plenty of white chocolate candies and a decadent red devil’s food cake fit for a beast to sink his or her teeth into.
From deep in the woods, the werewolves howl, the screech owls hoot, their warbling echoing through the thicket. A cold gust of winter air swooshes through the bristly pines, a slight dusting of snow covering the ground. And then a nightingale calls out, announcing the arrival of Raine Delight. Preceded by a rare and exotic sleek white tiger, Raine Delight gallops into the thicket on a beautiful white horse, his hooves clomping on the pinecones and fallen twigs.
Oliver dashes to greet her, his furry arms snaking around her wait to hoist her down. He treats Raine to a bone-melting grin, his white fangs gleaming as he hands her a winter white rose. Looking drop dead gorgeous in a plush red velvet pants suit that hugs her body, she saunters into the party, blowing kisses to her adoring fans. While she greets her hostesses and guests, Cuddles and Junior, the two little Elk Shifters, give us a sneak preview of Moonlight & Magic, unveiling it with their horns. And if that’s not enough to get your blood pumping, there’s a teaser of Moonlight and Magic.
Please answer the following question and leave a comment for Raine. Tomorrow, she will choose a winner and give the winner a prize. Good luck!
Question: If you could choose someone to play your very own tiger shifter, who would it be and why?
The forest grows as black as spades, the glint of a hunter’s moon gleaming through the undulating pines. White twinkle lights shimmer in the trees, the sound of the night predators thrashing in the thicket. A blazing fire crackles and hisses, smoke billowing upward in a tantalizing blend of mouth-watering aromas. Hoops of flaming fire appear like magic for anyone brave enough to enter the forbidden forest. The rare and exotic white tiger sits at the entrance gate, guarding the forest with primal possession. He opens his mouth and roars. Welcome to Raine Delight’s celebration, The Greatest Show on Earth!

Sneak Peek Unedited Excerpt:
The sun shined brightly as Michael drove into Devon Falls. He looked around as he drove up Main Street and wondered if he could finally find a place to call home. “Wow…look at this place.” Michael said to the dog on the floor of the rental car. Sadie looked up and yawned before going back to sleep with a snore. Grinning, Michael took in the snow covered buildings to the people bustling around. He was charmed by the way the small town seemed to make him feel like he was welcomes. If Damien has told me the truth then I think I finally found the one place that will ease this loneliness inside, Michael thought as he spied the Dragon Inn up ahead.
Finally reaching the parking lot, the Dragon Inn looked imposing yet even he felt the magic that surrounded it. It made him wary even as he patted Sadie on the head and opened the window so she could get fresh air. “I will be back soon Sadie. Man the fort and bark if you need me.” Michael said as he stepped out of the car, shivering as the artic air seemed to have froze the blood in his veins. Blowing into his hands, he cursed himself that he didn’t get any winter clothing before he started this trip. “Living in Miami for the summer really didn’t prepare me for winter at all”, Michael muttered to himself as he walked to the front door. Steeling himself, he hoped Damien would still welcome him and remember the invitation he made when they crossed paths in Europe a year ago.
Come to Devon Falls, Mic. Here you can be free to be yourself and you never know, you might find the one person who will love you no matter what, Michael remembered Damien saying in Prague as he pushed open the door and breathed in the warm air that had him shuddering as his body started thawing even as he shut the door behind him. Finally warmth and sniffing the air, the scents of bread baking made his stomach growl in anticipation even as he tried to stomp the snow off his boots before venturing into what looked like the common room and courtesy desk.
He was just about to turn to walk over to the room he spied when he came in when a loud “MICHAEL” seemed to bounce of the walls. Turning around he spied Damien walking toward him, smiling broadly.
“Dang man, it’s been too long since I laid eyes on you. How have you been?” Damien asked him as he clasped hands with the one person he considered friend and smiled back, relieved to see that he was welcomed after all.
Michael grinned and said, “I decided to see what all the fuss was about in this town of yours, Damien. From what I saw on the way in, it looks very welcoming and intriguing.” Relief flowed in his veins as the knots in his stomach eased a bit as Damien guided him over to a private area where coffee bar was set up.
