Our world is being judged and even they remain unaware.

Michelle, another young woman with an unexplainable gift, finds herself surrounded by the previously undiscovered werewolf society. Kept prisoner for the predictions that torment her, she meekly follows orders waiting for her opportunity to run. When her stepfather dies, she takes a chance and escapes.

After witnessing Blake, her captor, grow canines, she knows he will do anything to find her. She needs a place to hide and someone to listen to her predictions so her head doesn’t explode, but knows there’s nowhere she can hide forever, and no one who can protect her… unless she can find someone just like him.

Part of the fur wearing faction wants to use her, another part strives to keep her safe. The second book of the Judgement of the Six series will raise more questions about the purpose of these gifted few and Michelle will need to fight for answers. Will what she discovers be enough to help her keep those she loves safe from an emerging evil?

(Mis)fortune  is the second book of the Judgement of the Six  series:

Goodreads Smashwords B & N Amazon
Our world is being judged and we remain unaware.

In a world filled with people, Gabby is uniquely alone. The tiny glowing sparks filling her mind that represent the people around her, confirm it as does the bizarre inexplicable draw she has on men.

Struggling to find an explanation for her sight while dodging unwanted male attention, Gabby meets Sam. The chance encounter leads to a startling revelation—werewolves are real.

Hoping the existence of something so extraordinary might lead to the answers she is seeking, Gabby enters into a hidden society where fur is optional. There she meets Clay, the werewolf delusional enough to think he has a chance with her. Gabby's plans for her future do not include a mate, but rather college, career, and then a huge 'we'll see'.

Gabby leaves the furry hidden society behind when she moves off to college, but trouble has a way of following and finding her. When other werewolves start stalking her, and anomalies in the sparks she sees begin to appear, she must count on Clay's help or risk loosing the chance to find the answers she searches for.

— Interview with a Werewolf —
Clay from Hope(less), book one of the Judgement of the Six series

A knock sounds at the door. Melissa scrambles to tuck the latest novel she’s reading under a sofa cushion and then runs to answer the door. The afternoon interviewee has arrived. Melissa peeks out the door and finds a scruffy looking man staring back. His longish hair partially covers his eyes and a beard covers his face. Despite his dubious appearance, she opens the door with a smile.

Melissa: Hi! Come on in. *steps aside and motions Clay in*

Clay nods in greeting and enters.

Melissa: Please have a seat. *motions Clay to sit and takes a seat across from him in her slightly dusty living room* I was so excited you agreed to this interview. After finishing Hope(less), I have so many questions for you. Can I get you anything to drink before we start?

Clay declines with a shake of his head.

Melissa leans back into her chair and picks up a pad of paper to take notes. Tell me, what did you think of Gabby when you first saw her?

Clay smiles slightly. His whiskers twitch. Pretty.

Melissa waits for a few seconds for Clay to say more, clears her throat, and then moves on when he remains quiet. What exactly happened that night you brought her back to the compound? I’m really curious about the leaves in her hair.

Clay shifts uncomfortably and shrugs. Distraction.

Melissa blinks at his taciturn response. Let’s talk about your favorite color. Why pink?

Clay grins wickedly and shrugs. Bikini.

Melissa: Oh? *leans forward anticipating more detail, but is left waiting. Stifling a groan of frustration, moves on to the next question.* What made you decide to get a job from Dale?

Clay gives a full grin, showing teeth. His eyes crinkle at the corners. Opportunity.

Melissa: *the sexy smile evokes memories of several scenes from Hope(less). Melissa shakes herself, and barely avoids sighing in a dreamy fashion* What did you think of Gabby’s attempts to get rid of you?

A quick laugh escapes Clay. Expected.

Melissa looks down at the blank note paper and scowls briefly before returning her focus to Clay. I don’t want to give anything away for anyone who hasn’t read Hope(less), but tell me ... how do you feel about how the book ended?

Clay: *the heart-melting smile returns* Satisfied.

Melissa: *desperate for something to put to paper asks a simple yes or no question* Have you shaved for Gabby yet?

Clay shrugs enigmatically.

Melissa quickly asks the next question. Do you have any insight what will happen in the next installment of the series?

Clay shakes his head.

Melissa: Will we learn anything more about Gabby’s abilities?

Clay shrugs.

Melissa tries a different approach. Now that Hope(less)  is finished, what do you plan to do?

Clay: Wait.

Melissa: *frustration creeps into the next question* We can expect to see you again, then?

Clay shrugs enigmatically.

Melissa makes a show of looking at her watch. Well, look at the time! *stands and extends hand* I appreciate your time and your succinct answers. *leads Clay to the door*

Clay nods and exits.

Melissa returns to the couch, digs out her novel where the men actually speak in complete sentences, and escapes into another world.
