Onyx Night: Catnip & Cauldrons, Book #1 by Autumn Jones Lake
Onyx Knight has yearned to leave her tiny hometown behind for years. With her parents’ support she attends the local university where she has developed a not-so-innocent crush on her Medieval History professor, Cole Radcliffe. A family tragedy thrusts Onyx into a secret world she never knew existed and she discovers something about herself she could never have imagined.
Family friends promise to help Onyx through this transition, but they demand certain things in return. Things she can’t—and will not—give. When it becomes clear they are willing to get what they want from her by force, Onyx goes on the run.
Cole Radcliffe has his own secrets. When he finds Onyx in need of help, he takes her in, against his better judgment. He plans to keep her safe, but how can he keep her safe if he can’t even protect her from himself?
Onyx Night is a 22,000-word novella featuring a virgin heroine, a sexy professor, and some sweet shifter-loving.
*Onyx Night was previously published with Breathless Press. It has since been slightly revised and expanded.
