Sapphic Slow-burn romances



Second Nature by Jae

Second Nature 

She has been sent to kill the human,
not to fall in love with her

For solitary novelist Jorie Price, true love seems as fictional as the shape-shifting creatures she writes about in her paranormal romances.

Griffin Westmore doesn’t believe in love either, but she’s one of those not-so-fictional shape-shifters who secretly live among humans.

When Jorie’s writing gets uncomfortably close to the truth, Griffin is sent to investigate and, if necessary, kill the author to protect the secrets of her kind.
But when Griffin unexpectedly finds herself drawn to Jorie, her world is turned upside-down. Hell, she’s supposed to kill the human, not fall in love with her! How can she complete her mission now?

This lesbian paranormal romance is part one in Jae’s award-winning Shape-Shifter series but can be read as a standalone novel.

C-Spot Reviews (Alberta Yourdan)

“If you are new to this genre – like I was – and you are willing to open your mind to this world then you’ll find a novel full of suspense and action, of romance and fleshed-out cast of characters and a storyline that had me reading until late at night. And if you are already a fantasy fan then you’ll love this book.”

C-Spot Reviews (Cheri)

“Jae writes great stories with believable characters. She paints a vivid picture for the reader without all the extra details that sometimes make me want to skip ahead … I very much recommend Second Nature.”

Piercing Fiction (Lynne Pierce)

“Second Nature is a complex, yet thoroughly enjoyable tale and the creatures in it are presented in a totally believable manner.”
