Growing Sanctuary

Sanctuary B & B—Our wards are strong and our door is open!

Hey, y’all. It’s me, Darcy Valentine. I’m still enjoying a fabulous, never-ending first date with my sexy vampire boyfriend Storm. Can you believe we’re coming up on ten months? Yep, we go together like toast and jam. He’s still helping me with the B&B I run inside the warded walls of the quirky, ancestral castle I call home with the rest of the special family my mama and I built with the motley group of weirdos who live here with us.

Lordy, do I ever have a story to tell you. First off, I wanna caution you to be wary if a friend shows up on your doorstep in the wee hours… that goes double if they’re shirtless, bloody, and carrying a newborn baby who’s not supposed to be alive. Watch out ‘cuz the next thing you know, there’ll be a baby living in your house while you try to find the li’l darlin’ a forever home. And if that happens, keep your eyes peeled for the child’s blood kin… especially if they’re vicious shifters with no home training.

First rule of fostering a baby—don’t get attached. Rule two, don’t name the child, no matter how much you’re tempted. It’s okay to refer to the munchkin as “the baby,” but nothing else because that’s a fast track to breaking rule number one. Rule three, if you have a pushy mama like I do, don’t be afraid to stand up for yourself. She doesn’t get to choose when you become a parent! And if the Nana-to-be gets in your head… try referring back to rule one.

This 22k novella is the fourth in the Magical Mischief at the B&B series. This book does not contain mpreg, but it does have a newborn who needs a family, shifters that need killing, and an alpha wolf named Bubba. If you’re looking for serious literature, this isn't it. But if you want to laugh so hard you’ll wake the neighbors, this should get you there. There might be a few tears this time but it’s mostly full of all the fluffy, happy feels you’d expect from a Susi Hawke book. It could also be a choking hazard due to a ridiculous amount of awful jokes, so maybe don’t eat or drink while reading, okay?
