Hybrid shifter Vic Barniov likes his life to be quiet and orderly, but that carefully controlled existence gets blown to smithereens every time he comes home to find honey badger Livy Kowalski burrowing into his cabinets and eating his honey. Livy drives Vic insane in all the right ways, and Vic sets out to convince Livy that being in his bed and using the front door isn’t the end of the world. Livy enjoys her nomadic lifestyle, using it to avoid her criminally insane family. But she can’t avoid them forever; especially when her father passes away. When she discovers her father died under suspicious circumstances, Livy reaches out to her family — and soon chaos reigns supreme. But when someone wants Livy to stop asking questions and they almost succeed in silencing her permanently, Vic shows the world why you shouldn’t mess with hybrids. (BRAVA, Apr., 384 pp., $15.00)
