Mary just wants to get away from her boss, but quitting her job would leave her and her sister homeless. Raphael is a criminal living with the never-ending guilt of the crimes he committed centuries ago. Punished brings them together in a romance filled with lore, laugher, and love. Samantha Stone is pleased to present Book 1 of her new paranormal romance series, Crescent City Creatures. Raphael Saar is an exiled werewolf, a convict on the direct path to a death sentence—for a crime he didn’t commit. He doesn’t care, so long as he can end the human trafficking ring kidnapping women across New Orleans. Recovering from a horrific tragedy, one particularly bad day for Mary Newman has stretched into months. A nanny for a wealthy family in New Orleans, she can’t understand why she’s being constantly humiliated by her boss until the night she learns that he’s not human—and neither is she. Only Raphael can save her from the monster feeding from her misery, but will Mary be able to stop his execution? Punished teams up werewolves, banshees, a wompus cat and a haint in order to rid New Orleans of a group of immortals determined to hurt the city’s women and kill Raphael’s pack. 

Content Notes: Spicy, Urban Fantasy, Paranormal, Suspense, Shifters, Wolves, Other Weres, Magic, Ghosts.


EXCERPT

Leila loved to sit on the bench outside the carriage house and wave until Mary made it inside. Mary knew she also liked to see the glamor that was the inside of the home; she was sure they
didn’t own a single knickknack worth less than ten thousand dollars, a notion that caused her to take great care when she worked. When Mary took the short path to main house, she was surprised to see Richard waiting for her at the door.
“You had a man stay the night,” he said. His normally handsome face was mottled with red. She could have sworn his eyes turned from brown to black, his normally straight white teeth forming sharp, yellowed points.
“Yes.” She wouldn’t apologize. She wouldn’t let this man scare her anymore.
“That is not allowed,” he spat, inventing the asinine rule on the spot. “You belong to me.”
She stepped toward him, angling her chin up. “No, I work for you. You don’t own me.”
A hard slap cut across her face. Lights blinked in front of her eyes; the pain dazed her. She felt blood drip from beneath her left eye.
Never in her life had she been hit. I will not cry. After everything Richard had said and done, she should have expected this. I will not cry.
Only one more year of this. I will not cry.
