Wolf's Challenge
Stranger Creatures Book 1
by Christina Lynn Lambert
Genre: Paranormal Romance, Romantic Suspense

When Sydney left Seattle two years ago, she was scared, traumatized, and done with men for good. Now she has a good job, a hobby that’s fast becoming a second career, and best of all, she’s adopted a little girl named Angel. Life is good and Sydney’s not about to let charming lawyer Derrick mess that up, no matter how sexy he is, or how sweet he seems.

Things aren’t always as they appear in the town of Great Oaks, Virginia. Derrick isn’t the ladies’ man Sydney thinks he is, but he does have a few secrets, the least shocking one that he can transform into a powerful wolf at will.

Can Derrick convince Sydney to give him a chance, something more than her elusive maybe? More importantly, should he? He’s still trying to forgive himself for being at the wheel during the accident that killed his son. Losing Sydney when she learns the truth might break him, but he’s pretty sure not having her in his life would be just as bad.

Bear's Edge
Stranger Creatures Book 2

A boss can't date her employee—simple as that. No matter how much Shayla wants to unravel a few of Grant's mysteries and take her friendship with the shy, sarcastic man to the next level, she's determined to keep her fantasies of him to herself.

After bear shifter Grant lost his girlfriend and three best friends in a fire, he did his best to shut himself off from everyone around him.

When things between the two of them get hotter than he could have imagined, Grant wonders if some of his darker desires will be too much for Shayla or will she embrace the needs he’s kept hidden for so long?

An obnoxious reporter and Shayla's bitter ex have teamed up to chase down conspiracy theories that could destroy Shayla's business and worse, put her life in danger.

Tiger's Last Chance
Stranger Creatures Book 3

While working a case, Sean Whitman is tortured for information, drugged, and bitten against his will by a shape shifter. The fallout leaves him jobless, friendless, and dumped by his girlfriend. Needing a fresh start, he leaves town and opens a private investigation business. Learning to live life sober isn’t easy, but he makes it to the two year mark.

When Detective Nikki Jackson with the Great Oaks, Virginia Police Department calls him, accusing him of breaking into his ex-girlfriend’s house, Sean can’t help but like the sound of her voice, despite her ridiculous accusations. He’s shocked when she calls him back with an apology then asks for his help as a consultant on a case. On the phone, her sweet, slightly Southern voice captivates him. In person, she’s unlike any other woman he’s encountered, and nearly impossible to resist. But could the sexy detective ever want a man like him?

After Nikki’s last dating disaster, the mountain lion shifter has sworn off men. Then she meets Sean, and with every second she spends around the tall, dark-eyed man, her resolve crumbles. And the fact the guy’s kiss leaves her breathless? Yeah, that no-men idea sounds more and more like a bad idea. But for some reason, despite the undeniable attraction between them, Sean seems determined to push her away.

An investigation into missing refugees leaves Nikki with more questions than answers. Her refusal to let the matter drop leads her to the discovery of a radical political group’s horrifying plot for dominance. Traitors are embedded within the very organizations meant to keep shifters safe. As the list of people she can trust dwindles, Nikki calls on Sean to help her unravel a web of deceit.

Sean realizes pushing Nikki away was a stupid move. So when the sexy, amazing detective contacts him, he jumps at the second chance, dropping everything to fly across the country to help her. And he hates flying. But with her life in danger, he’ll do whatever it takes.

Can Sean and Nikki stop a hate group from carrying out their deadly plans? And if so, will he get one last chance to prove his love for her?

How did you come up with the setting and concept for Wolf’s Challenge?

The beauty and vulnerability of nature was an inspiration to me when I decided on the setting for the Stranger Creatures series. In the first story of the series, Wolf’s Challenge, I imagined the hero, Derrick, having grown up near the mountains and camping under the stars. After he lost his son in a car accident and got divorced, he moved to the once desolate former factory town of Great Oaks, Virginia to get a fresh start. Sydney moved across the country to Great Oaks for a fresh start after a scary break up. The town, with its plethora of forestland and streams, was unlike the more populated cities she’d lived in before. When Derrick invites Sydney to explore some of the trails at a ruggedly beautiful park, she is inspired by the magic and mystery of the landscape. Little does she know, the wild, wonderful town she moved to is full of some strange but amazing people.


 Is love stronger than fear?

In Wolf's Challenge, Sydney misjudges Derrick and writes him off as someone who belongs in the friend-zone. Derrick isn’t perfect. He has a few secrets. He’s made some mistakes. Secrets have a way of destroying the keeper but the truth can destroy a relationship. Derrick wonders if Sydney would still want him if she knew all his secrets. Love is scary as hell because there are no guarantees. There is risk involved in trusting someone and I wanted to show the beautiful and heartbreaking journey from fear to courage as Sydney and Derrick embrace the risk and give in to love.


Tell us about your main characters- what makes them tick?

The Challenge in Wolf’s Challenge is definitely not for Derrick to try to wear Sydney down and bother her until she agrees to go on a date with him, because that kind of crap is not endearing. From the moment they meet, Derrick knows Sydney should be with him. Sydney on the other hand, wants nothing to do with him. The challenge for Derrick is to not push her, to not try to move too fast. The challenge for Sydney is that after a couple of bad relationships, she’s afraid to trust her own judgment. How can she know for sure whether Derrick is as good as he seems or if he’s a jerk in disguise, waiting to hurt her when she’s vulnerable? What I love about Derrick’s character is that he doesn’t get pushy or rude with Sydney, instead he does his best to figure out how to give her space and to try to show her he’s a good guy as they get to know each other. He wants her to be his partner in life, not a conquest to be pursued and set aside once attained.

A few years ago, I read my first romance novel and I was hooked, so much so that I decided to give the idea of writing a story a chance. Love, courage, hope, and second chances are a few of my favorite themes. My stories include a fair amount of sarcasm, suspense, steam, and violence. When I'm not writing, I enjoy spending time outside and finding ways to avoid cooking. I live in beautiful Virginia with my husband, two daughters, and a sweet, hairy monster of a dog.
