Monster Hunter for Hire: Super Beast
Publication date: September 18th 2021
Genres: Adult, Urban Fantasy
After a run-in with the Sebring Beach police department where a vampire’s servant ended up dead, Helena Graves is offered two choices – help the local PD chase down wanted monsters or spend the next ten years in prison.
Since she has a teenage daughter to raise, it was an easy decision for her to make.
Between running a somewhat controversial business, tense teacher conferences, and killer supernaturals on the loose, there’s never a dull moment in Sebring Beach or Helena’s life.
And for the first time in decades, her love life is about to get very interesting.

“Someone in your pack is rabid?” Henry asks, his face and Amos’s both equally horrified.
“Yes,” I answer for Calvin when he turns away to wipe his damp face with the collar of his tee.
“Is the pack going to put him down?” Amos questions Calvin, who shakes his head. “Why the hell not?” he grumbles.
“We voted on it, and almost everyone said no, to leave it up to someone else. Right or wrong, whoever ends his life will be shunned in the pack by the rest of the wolves. They may as well put the gun to their head when it’s over!”
Henry is already shaking his head when he gets to his feet. “No, Lena!” I take a step back as he comes closer. Frowning after I retreated from him, he stops advancing. “You have to let someone else go after the wolf!”
“I didn’t take the job,” I assure him. “His parents came to me tonight. They want me to track him down so they can see if the vaccine is working.”
“Nothing will save him now, not even a vaccine,” Amos says gravely. “Sorry, Calvin, but a quick death is the best the wolves can hope for now. That’s the only option before he infects other shifters and starts killing humans.”
“You’re sure?” I ask him.
“Yes!” Henry and Amos both adamantly agree.
“Well, who is going to be able to handle taking on something like this?” I ask the shifters. “The police sure as hell can’t.”
“I honestly don’t know,” Henry replies, hands on his hips in thought, drawing my attention to the scratches again. “Maybe I can talk to my dad about getting a bounty hunter from out of town to come in and track him. It’ll need to be a sniper, though, someone who doesn’t have to get close to kill him.”
I wince as I glance over at the still-pale Calvin, who walks out of the locker room without another word.
“You guys could be a little more sympathetic around him,” I tell the alphas as I start to back away. “What if it was someone in your pride, Henry, or your sleuth, Amos?”
“Sorry, Helena,” Amos mutters.
“Yeah, I’m sorry too, Lena,” Henry agrees. “But this isn’t your problem. The shifters will handle it. A rabid wolf would tear you into pieces, sweetheart.”
