Like A Wolf
Kemet is a successful Assistant District Attorney living in Tampa. Engaged to one
of the wealthiest men in town, her future seems assured. That is until her past

informing her that the most important person in her life has returned and he is
being held at the Tampa police station on suspicion of murder.
all but forgotten, Rachel races to the PD to find the man who has haunted her
dreams since the age of seven--her foster brother, Richard. There is no blood
tie between them but Richard reminds her of a deeper bond, one that was forged
when the two of them were mere children—children of a strange, half human
race called the Amon-kai.
doesn't want to remember the horrible night when her mother stole her away from
Richard, she only knows that for the first time in seventeen years she finally
feels whole. But Richard wants more than a simple family reunion—he needs
Rachel in a way that goes against her deeply held convictions and beliefs.
Rachel refuses to see him as more than her long lost brother but when Richard's
murderous secret comes out she will have to make a choice between breaking the
most forbidden taboo...or dying.
Note: While Richard and Rachel have no blood ties and their relationship is
consensual, some readers, particularly those with a history of sexual abuse or

Evangeline From the Author's Website
Anderson is a registered MRI tech who would rather be writing. And yes, she is
nerdy enough to have a bumper sticker that says "I'd rather be
writing." Honk if you see her! She is thirty-something and lives in
Florida with a husband, a son, and two cats. She had been writing erotic
fiction for her own gratification for a number of years before it occurred to

paranormal and Sci-fi erotica steadily ever since.

and she is separated from her father and her foster brother.

understood that Rachel was to be his mate when they became older. Now suddenly
Richard is in her life again and expecting things from her that she isn't sure
she really wants.

Rachel. Rachel on the other hand was a pretty wishy-washy character. Not just
because she's confused about what is going on, but also because it seems that
she can't make up her mind. The whole you're my brother thing, didn't bother me
as much as the whole you're my brother, but come "sleep" with me in
bed. This woman is a lawyer, engaged to another man and still doesn't see the
problem with "sleeping" with her brother? Otherwise this is a pretty
good paranormal/shapeshifter book. It has nice descriptive visuals, which I really
