Book Description:

In a dying fairy fantasyland, can two shifters tell if the magic between them is real?

While volunteering for hurricane cleanup, sheriff’s deputy and leopard shifter Chantal Hammond stumbles across two escapees from a fairy fantasyland. Unfortunately, when she tries to help, she ends up trapped. She quickly discovers she's lost in a mini-world of trouble, and more captives need rescuing.

Prehistoric sloth shifter Dauro de Mar and his friends have cruelly been imprisoned in their animal forms for years. His plan to lead the escape is mostly wishful thinking until an intoxicating and magical leopard shifter arrives still in her human form. She's their game changer.

It's going to take Chantal's and Dauro's combined skills, magic, and courage to evade evil hunters and greedy fairies, and get everyone out of this mess. Especially since the fairy fantasyland is disintegrating. Can they fight off danger—and their sizzling attraction—long enough to win their freedom? Or will they be destroyed by the mother of all storms when this magical land dies?

Find out today in Shifter's Storm, another sizzling hot Ice Age Shifters® paranormal romance from USA TODAY bestselling author Carol Van Natta.

Shifter's Storm is a complete story with a happily-ever-after and no cliffhanger, and can be enjoyed without having read the rest of the series.

Bewitching Exclusive Excerpt

An exclusive excerpt from SHIFTER’S STORM (Ice Age Shifters Book 5) by Carol Van Natta, in which a captive prehistoric shifter and a lost sheriff's deputy must lead a desperate escape or be stuck in a dying fairy wonderland forever.
In this excerpt, Deputy Sheriff Chantal Breton is being recruited for a cleanup effort on a Puerto Rican island.
The mayoral office was suitably large and styled to look prestigious without being tacky. From scent traces, a long-gone previous occupant had smoked a lot of Cuban cigars, and someone had recently eaten a shrimp salad for lunch. The air vents were much quieter. Maybe after tomorrow’s night shift, she’d try tightening the vent covers in the sheriff’s station. The one near her desk sounded like a kazoo when the fans kicked in.
Renée arrived moments later, carrying a tablet. She was blonde, blue-eyed, and lived in khakis and sleeveless blouses. Chantal didn’t know how she stayed looking so neat and elegant, considering she was the county’s social worker with a passel of her own cubs plus some foster fledglings as well.
After the obligatory offer of refreshments, Belinda got straight to the point.
“Renée and I are part of an international charity that does relief work in southern Florida and around the Caribbean. We’re organizing a trip to Vieques, a small island off Puerto Rico, to help with recovery efforts.”
Renée nodded earnestly. “Actually, our Puerto Rican relatives are doing the organizing, we’re just recruiting.” She opened her tablet and brought up a gallery of photos. “Your namesake hurricane did serious damage to the whole island.” The enlarged pictures showed debris everywhere. Flattened trees, boats in pieces, houses with no roofs. “Rain washed out the roads and trails, too.” More pictures showed significant flood damage. “The military’s former bomb practice was bad enough, but this hit everything.
Belinda waved toward the tablet. “After the last direct-hit hurricane, the human government ignored Puerto Rico and Vieques for years. We’re not going to let that happen this time. Our friends live there.”
As near as Chantal could tell, Florida flamingo shifters were either related to or allied with every other flamingo shifter flock and colony in the Western Hemisphere. They blended in with the natural wild flocks and cared for them. They’d even herded them south, away from Florida, once humans started hunting them for their pink feathers to decorate hats.
“We’d like to know,” said Renée, “if you’d be interested in volunteering for a couple of weeks.”
Chantal blinked, surprised. “You mean go to Vieques? I’m flattered, but I’m trained as a first-responder, not in recovery work. And I’d be leaving the Sheriff’s department short-handed.”
“Yes, but you speak Spanish and you’re self-reliant.” Renée smiled and waggled a finger between herself and Belinda. “We flamingos can’t decide what to have for breakfast without a community forum and runoff votes.”
“It’s true,” Belinda agreed with a chuckle. “Half of Vieques is a protected wilderness. Your mountain rescue experience and your feline abilities are just what are needed to assess the damage and help prioritize rehabilitation projects. From what we’ve seen, you know when to take initiative and when to call for help.”
Chantal had to admit the opportunity was tempting. Her inner leopard loved independent exploring and discovering things. Keeping the peace in Barron mostly consisted of issuing tickets for expired license plates, serving warrants, and keeping drunk-ass shifters from tearing up the local taverns and shooting each other. Luckily, sensitive shifter noses detested the smells of drug cooking, or the county might have had a more serious problem.
On the other hand, she took her job seriously. “It’s not fair to leave the department down one deputy.”
Belinda exchanged a look with Renée, then turned to Chantal. “You wouldn’t be. We enticed Sheriff Torres into joining the Tribunal’s law enforcement exchange program by promising to fund the new position outside the department’s budget. We thought it would be a good way to introduce new ideas.” She made a frustrated hiss. “Instead, he’s found every excuse to delay sending one of his deputies away. They’re at full staff without you. We recently found out he’s given you a deliberately random schedule and crappy assignments so you’ll quit. That way, he can call the program a failure.”
