Heights terrify Ava. When a stranger saves her from plunging down a mountain, he diverts her fears with tales of Japanese kitsune—shapeshifting foxes—and she begins a journey into the supernatural.


She’s attracted to Chase, both physically and metaphysically, yet primal instincts urge caution when shadows suggest more than meets the eye.


She’s torn between Chase and Rafe, her ex, when a chance reunion reignites their passion, but she struggles to overcome two years of bitter resentment. Did Rafe jilt her, or were they pawns of a larger conspiracy? Are the ancient legends true of kitsunes twisting time and events?

“Why didn’t you answer my texts?” Still in pajamas, her hair disheveled, Mia was wild eyed. “I can’t find the kitten. How did he get out?”


Though posed as a question, her accusation woke me from my stupor. All sense of peace and wellbeing dispelled, I glanced at the clock. “We spoke less than thirty minutes ago…”


“I’m sorry.” Mia put her hand to her temple. “I’m just so worried about Ichiro.”


“Relax, we’ll find him.” I glanced about the efficiency apartment. A search can’t take more than a few minutes. “I’ll start in the kitchenette.”


“And I’ll check my bedroom…for the fourth time.” Mia’s shoulders sagged.


Just as I was about to give up, I noticed a tissue box on the desk. Ichiro wouldn’t be in there…would he?


A tiny mew escaped. Then the kitten’s silky head popped up, and he began mewing loudly.


“You found him?” Mia ran in.


“Yup. The little stinker used the tissue box as a hideaway bed.” I lifted the kitten, cuddling him.


“Thank heavens!” Mia gave a deep sigh. “I didn’t know what to tell Atsuki.”


“Who cares what he thinks?” Her overreaction was getting on my nerves.


“I do.”




“Because Atsuki takes an interest in this little guy. And what Atsuki likes, I like.”


“Since when?”


“I don’t know…recently. Actually, since last night…” Her brow wrinkling, Mia mumbled.




“Something happened, but I can’t quite remember…Atsuki said something about cats…and foxes…I can’t recall.”


Cats and foxes again…My ears perked.
