Giveaway and Spotlight On: Here Kitty, Kitty by A. Star, Dariel Raye, Mia Derien, Abigail Owen, BR Kingslover

"Here, Kitty Kitty" is a six-story/six-author paranormal romance anthology spearheaded by "Adelheid Series" author Mia Darien. Each story in the anthology is about big cat shifters, and all proceeds go directly to the Exotic Feline Rescue Center in Indiana to help feed and support rescued lions, panthers, leopards, bobcats, cheetahs, etc. that have been abused and neglected. Here are the blurbs for the six stories. Be sure to enter the giveaway at the end of the post.

"His Jaguar Princess" by A. Star [Jaguar]
The Story: Jaguar shifter Selene Peters can’t deny her feelings for the tycoon Lucas King. Somehow, he's penetrated her barriers and become more than just a client, but loving a human is dangerous and she fears her past repeating itself. Could he help her overcome the past or will she sacrifice her happiness and succumb to it? Not if he has anything to say about it...
Author Bio: A. Star is a pseudonym of Diantha Jones, who was born the day thousands of turkeys sacrificed their lives to fill millions of American bellies on November 22 which also happened to be Thanksgiving Day (Her mother says she owes her a turkey). She is a Journalism graduate who wants to be a career novelist (of books, not Facebook posts). When not writing or working, she is reading on her Nook, being hypnotized by Netflix or on a mission to procure french fries. She is the author of The Oracle of Delphi series and Mythos: Stories from Olympus. Under A. Star, she has released Invasion, and future releases include the Love & Steampunk series, the Purr, Inc. stories, and more.

"In Our Nature" by Jessica Nicholls [Cougar]
The Story: When Mira's privacy and independence are threatened, she can be very nasty.  Daniel is an expert on American mountain lions. His assistance is requested after an 'incident' on Mira’s front lawn. When the two meet, they recognise each other in more than one way.
Author Bio: Jessica Nicholls is originally from Northern Illinois. She lived in the Northwest of England for just over ten years, where she studied and had her children. Currently, Jessica lives in the Middle East with her husband and two now school age (yay!) kids. Running, reading and watching films are her favourite hobbies. Writing the type of stories she would enjoy reading (anything dark and weird or romantic, or a combination of those) is a passion.

"Divine Passage" by Dariel Raye [Panther]
The Story: Kimani, a breeder with the power to preserve the human race, must depend on her guardian, Ahkil, a black panther shifter with more than one reason to distrust humans, but his secrets could change the course of her life forever.
Author Bio: Dariel loves books, animals, and all things paranormal. Dariel has written articles for The News Item of Mobile, and Black Health Magazine of Atlanta. A classically trained pianist and vocalist with a degree in piano and vocal performance and a master’s in counseling psychology, she completed studies for a Ph.D. with the exception of her dissertation, and finally stopped due to kidney failure/dialysis. She is presently writing a shifter romance series, "Dark Sentinels," and two Nephilim series, "The Alerians" and "Children of Cain." Lives with two large dogs and a passel of black cats.

"The Distance Between" by Mia Darien [Siberian Tiger]

Author Bio: Mia Darien is an indie author of speculative fiction, and a New England Yankee transplanted into Alabama clay. No matter her geography, she continues to stubbornly and rebelliously live the life of her choosing along with her family and pets. She doesn’t miss the snow.

"Hannah's Fate" by Abigail Owen [Cougar]
The Story: Cougar shifters have allied into groups, together in a rocky alliance to protect themselves against other shifters.

Meanwhile, Nick Jensen, her childhood hero and longtime secret crush, has returned home with hopes of claiming Hannah for his own. But will he be in time to rescue her from the Carstairs's schemes?
Author Bio: Award-winning author, Abigail Owen was born in Greeley, Colorado to a high school English teacher and a social worker. Abigail was raised in Austin, Texas and now resides in Northern California with her husband and two adorable children who are the center of her universe. Abigail grew up consuming books and exploring the world through her writing. A fourth generation graduate of Texas A&M University, she attempted to find a practical career related to her favorite pastime by obtaining a degree in Technical Writing. However, she swiftly discovered that writing without imagination is not nearly as fun as writing with it.

"Full Moon" by BR Kingsolver [Jaguar]
The Story: The full moon can get a girl stirred up, especially with a handsome cowboy paying her way too much attention. If it wasn't for those damned werewolves causing trouble and getting in the way...
