UNDER HIS PROTECTION
Hello and welcome to the blog tour for Forest of Thorns and Claws! This M/M shifter (weretiger) romance is a standalone novel set in the rainforests of Indonesia. The book features a lonely veterinarian and wildlife conservationist from the UK, Dr. Donovan McGinnis, who meets a man from the local Sumatran village, Kersen, after rescuing a snared tigress. I hope you’ll read on to learn more about Donovan and Kersen’s adventures.

If you could travel forward or backward in time, where would you go and why?
I’ve often thought I’d go back and convince myself not to make the mistakes that I made. But if you are constantly thinking about what you should have done differently, you’re not living and enjoying the actual life that you have in front of you, so I try not to dwell on it.
Besides, who knows how things would have turned out if you change just one little thing. Time travel can be tricky that way.
Where Does Will Live?
Loosely Based Settings in Will to Live By M. Christine
The childhood home of Will Franco is South Los Angeles, and although the story takes place after he graduates, the magnet high school he and his friend Yuri attend was constructed with Crenshaw High in mind.
The sex club, Memorabilia, that Kendra brings Will to, I envisioned in the south end of Downtown L.A. that borders on the city of Vernon. It is an industrial area, at night desolate yet ripe for afterhours conduct, very noir. It wasn’t that long ago rent in this region of Los Angeles was a song, under a dollar per square foot for loft spaces perfect for artist studios and underground clubs. A wise entrepreneur like my character Frances Tallchief could easily invest in such a property to transform into a BDSM den.
About Summer Stock
Tabloid scandals have driven TV star Ryan Hertzog to North Carolina’s Outer Banks, where he’s hiding out doing summer stock at his cousin’s seaside theater. When a hookup with local handyman Trey Donovan results in Ryan being photographed butt naked, he vows to keep his pants on and his hands off Trey. How was he supposed to know Trey would turn out to be the summer stock set builder?
Millie, now married to James, is taking her delayed honeymoon on the Riviera, and her lover, Benita, has accompanied them. Millie’s attitude towards her has changed, and even though their affair is still as intense as ever, and now plumbs new depths of depravity—as she watches husband and wife together—Benita begins to wonder if Millie actually loves her as much as she thought, or if, as she feared, marriage has changed her. Her emotions in turmoil, Benita is plunged into a world of doubt as things prove harder for her to accept than she thought. In the midst of her anxiety though, she soon begins to wonder if the tales of James are true, and he is more of a womaniser than Millie knows.
