British female sleuth, Daisy Dunlop, thinks she's found her dream job. Too bad she has to work with her worst nightmare, private investigator Solomon Liffey. They've barely spoken since he took her husband's request to keep her safe far too literally and handcuffed her to the kitchen sink.

Solomon has no interest in babysitting a new partner, especially this one. The woman's a bleedin' liability. She has no concept of danger and could flirt for England at the next Olympics. As if that isn't bad enough, she has a habit of sticking her nose in where it's not wanted, including into Solomon's very private life.

Determined to keep Daisy safely out the way, Solomon sets her the task of finding a missing person. Her investigations land her in the middle of his case. Bullets fly, bombs explode, and the number of murder victims keeps rising. When Solomon goes missing, the tables are turned. Now his future is in Daisy's hands.

Paranormal Romance (Werewolf)You know that movie Jerry Maguire? It's about this sports agent who got fired for suddenly having a conscience. Anyway, there's this very romantic scene by the end of the movie when Jerry made this very heartfelt and passionate declaration to his wife. Those words would melt you into a puddle and make you burst into tears thinking, "I want to have that kind of love!"Well that very sweet scene did not happen on this story, not all of it anyway. Don't get me wrong it was heart wrenching, very much so, and there was a passionate declaration. But instead of saying the oh so loving, oh so sweet and oh so scripted "I love you. You complete me..." like Jerry did in the movie, my 'mate', the other half of my soul and the one who 'completes' me said, "I hate you. I wish you were dead!" He said it with disgust and anger burning in his eyes. He didn't run into my arms like he was supposed to, he ran away from it. But who could blame him? Jerry Maguire was right. We live in a cynical world and we work on a business of tough competitors. Why would my mate want to be with me? He'd be shunned and be forever laughed at. Aside from the fact that I was male, I'm basically useless to him because I'm a werewolf who can't phase. He's an alpha. He could have anyone he wants. And me, well, I'm on the bottom of the pack, the runt of the litter. The council didn't know what to do with me. They couldn't kill me since it could drive my mate insane, even if he didn't want me. I can't kill myself because it would probably have the same effect on him. I have to live but I can't be with my mate and my pack. So I made it easier for everyone, I ran away. I always believed in the saying "Out of sight, out of mind." What I didn't consider was the possibility that they'd come after me and forcefully bring me back.

Looking To Belong (A Runt's Story)

Living as a rogue is hard enough, but doing so as a runt is even harder. Rogues, lawless wolves, and ferals are only some of the dangers Jade must face while living in no man's land, and she has to be clever to survive. Such a lifestyle has taught her several tricks and given her valuable skills, but will they be enough to convince a pack to let her prove her worth? If a pack does accept her, could she dare to dream of falling in love?--------On a side note:None of the main characters are mated to an Alpha.No character has 'exclusive' abilities or powers. -----Sneak Peek:My steps faltered as I noticed that two of the pursuing wolves had sped ahead on a larger circuit and were waiting to intercept me. I launched towards a tree and used my feet to ricochet off at a ninety-degree angle without slowing down. One of the wolves following further behind was able to easily correct for my new direction and picked up speed. The tan wolf was closing in, and I started to panic.I looked around frantically, trying to find a way to escape. I saw a rabbit burrow under a small bramble bush and desperately raced towards it. I darted under the edge of the plant and heard the tan wolf going around as he expected me to come out the other side. It gave me the precious seconds I needed to squeeze down the tunnel. My relief was short-lived - the rabbit that dug this burrow had not survived long enough to finish it. The tunnel was only about twice as long as the average human arm, and I could clearly see the entrance. I sent a silent prayer that the bramble bush would deter them and that they would not realize just how shallow this burrow was. I waited anxiously.The entire semi-polished draft can be read on Wattpad.The polished version can also be purchased on Amazon in print/audio.Copyright January 2017. All Rights Reserved.

One Wonderful Spring Evening

"I believe, no, I want to believe that you will still be able to make the right choice and not make a mistake."The original work is written by me in Russian. This is a translation made by me (again) and my dearest friend Julia Osadchaya. I am incredibly grateful to her!My first experience in writing such work, and it's extremely exciting! I would be grateful to get constructive criticism and comments! This is absolutely vital to me. A long time ago, I accidentally "stumbled" upon the fact of the existence of this wonderful couple. These characters have conquered me and have not let go for several years.The story is finished the way I wanted it to be. I have not seen any other ending, and each reader may be able to interpret it in their own way.Dedication:To my family and friends.And also to those who love this magical, literally and figuratively universe, and especially Draco and Hermione. To talented writers who create masterpieces. To creative people and true dreamers.Enjoy your reading!🤍

Tainted Love || Bakugou Katsuki ✓

"I wasn't meant to save the world. I was meant to destroy it. A story of rebirth."They were watching my every move, so I sank to the ground and did my best to keep my emotions at bay. There was, however, no turning back now. Everyone had seen what I've become.A cold, ruthless, manipulative crook that everyone despised from the depts of their heart. I was way past saving anyway."I'm sorry Aizawa. I'm not fit to be a hero." I whispered incoherently. However, I was drinking the very elixir of life.I got up on my feet, ignoring the cuts and bruises over my body and glared at the fellow heros on the other side, my friends and teachers who were poised to take me down any second. What do you do when you realise you've been the villian all along?#2 wattpadpicks
