**Don’t miss this standalone short story from 80-time bestselling author, T. S. Joyce.**
One wild night with friends, and Brock Evans comes up with a plan to rake in the room reservations at his lodge. Instead of celebrating Valentine’s Day, he is going to throw an UnValentine’s Day party for the singles who want to escape the hearts, and romance, and frills of February. But when a curvy beauty comes crashing into his lodge with eyes much too bright to be human, he is instantly intrigued. She has to be one of those shifters, but she fibbed about it on her room application, so she must be hiding something big. And the more he gets to know her, the more he wants to uncover all the mysteries that surround her.
Humans and shifters don’t mix. Armadillo shifter, Ava, learned that early on, so to avoid being denied for the UnValentine’s Day party at a rustic mountain inn, she tells a little white lie that snowballs her down a path she doesn’t expect. Brock is kind, handsome as hell, and a dominant personality compared to a submissive shifter like herself. He’s fun, and easy to be around, and her body ignites around him, but she is here for one reason, and one reason alone—to escape the pressure of the holiday. The last thing a girl like her needs is romance on Valentine’s Day, but Fate just might have other plans.
Content Warning: Explicit love scenes, naughty language, and piles of sexy shifter secrets. Intended for mature audiences.
