Big Bad Bite
Big Bad Bite Series #1
Paranormal Romance
(Jenna & Adam’s Story)
January 28, 2013
What would it be like to live in a world where you are considered abnormal to those who are above the norm?

Jenna O’ Conner has been taught her whole life to hide from everyone. Never to let anyone to close enough to know that she would prefer a shotgun for her birthday over of a bouquet of roses. She’s been smothered by her over protective family so that no one learns what she truly is. Which is not human. Nor, is she considered the norm for the supernatural Other community that is benevolent enough to share this world with the humans.

In a desperate attempt to live her own life away from the small town she was raised in, Jenna obtains her dream job as the newest member on the Wilmington Police Department’s SWAT Team. What she didn’t predict was that she would run into trouble her first day on the job, in the form of a deadly, mouthwatering man named Adam McPhee. Who is also not human, but more like a wolf walking around in human skin. He’s determined to figure out exactly what Jenna is, which unbeknownst to him, could very well put her life in danger. He’s also determined to have her all to himself.

As if that wasn’t enough for Jenna to deal with, bad news blows into town. A group of extremist Shifters who think humans are cattle and factions of Others worldwide should stay within their own species – never to intermingle. Chaos ensues. Jenna has to find a way to shut them down, but in the process of trying to do that, discovers things about herself that even she never thought was possible.

Who said the wolf was what you had to worry about?
Welcome to the real world.

There's two of us that make up the Jessie Lane writing team. So,
Melissa and I split up the movies and books for our top 5 of each!
Melissa's Picks:
1. Brian Lumley - Necroscope series (thanks to my older brother for
introducing me to the scariest and most brutally epic concept of
Dracula I have ever read.)
2. William Peter Blatty- Exorcist (Spinning heads and projectile
vomit. Check. Getting dizzy just thinking about it.
3. Thomas Harris - Silence of the Lambs (
it rubs the lotion on its skin, or else it gets the hose again
4. Stephen King - It (I'm TERRIFIED of clowns. Enough said.)
5. Richard Matheson - I am Legend
(Picked it up at an airport bookstore in Chicago on a trip back home
to surprise the folks.The idea of being utterly alone for the rest of
your existence is scary enough.)

1. Rocky Horror Picture Show (might not be scary but its tradition for
me to watch it as I have for so many years) love it!
2. Any of the Poltergeist movies...You can ask Crystal, every time I
seem to pass out on my couch when I wake up its on the part where
Carol anne is staring at the tv....Creeps the shit out of me. Mind
you it wasn't on the tv when I went to sleep in the first place...lol)
3. Silent Hill - Burnt babies...need I say more.
4. The Descent - creepy caves, creepy caves...bats....pasty people who
haven't seen the light of day in a very long time and like the 'other
white meat'
5. Silence of the Lambs.....Hannibal Lector likes fried brains....his
IQ scares most people.

Crystal's Picks:
I don't read scary books. YESSSSSS... I'm a weenie like that.

1. Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) (I won't watch Freddy movies at all
anymore because he creeps me out that much. NO JUDGING!)
2. The Mothman Prophecies (2002)
3. The Omen (1976)
4. 28 Days Later (2002)
5. The Amityville Horror (1979)

Jessie Lane is the writing team of Crystal Leo and Melissa Pahl. The two sisters-in-law share a passionate love of naughty romance, cliff hanging suspense, and out-of-this-world characters that demand your attention, or threaten to slap you around until you do pay attention to them. Because really, it is ALL about the characters. (They’re kind of megalomaniacs – but don’t tell them that we said that.)
Their first YA novel, The Burning Star, was released in May 2012. Big Bad Bite is their second novel, but their first adult paranormal romance, and was released in January 2013. Their third book, Secret Maneuvers, will release in June 2013, and will be the start of a new adult contemporary romance series (Ex Ops Series). They are now working on their next two novels, Walk On The Striped Side (Big Bad Bite Series #2) and The Frozen Star (YA Star Series #2).With these projects underway, they are looking forward to showing the rest of the world their crazy stories, heroes and heroines that often plague their minds until written, and hope you will join them on their journey!
