Welcome to Beckwell, home of the magical and strange... and the Shades, a group of gender-swapped Golden Girls determined to protect what's theirs.
Some days, the world is out to get you. Literally.
The same morning his cat tries to murder him, half-troll Frizzly Cooper meets a cute but deadly destruction goddess. Sure, she might have saved his cat, but she wants to destroy his town. A call for help is answered by Beckwell's own troublesome senior citizens, the Shades, who seem to think Frizzly can save his town and everyone in it. This former biker is no one's hero... but this time, maybe a half-troll with a big heart and a homicidal cat is just what Beckwell needs.
Destroying Beckwell isn't personal, but it could mean a job promotion.
Devi Aghanashini, a would-be destruction goddess, needs a break. She just started a new job, and her assignment is to set a magical bomb off in the Beckwell Senior Center. It's not supposed to hurt anyone. The only thing in her way is one very sexy and sweet half-troll who seems to think she has more potential than just destruction. This could be their chance for real change and acceptance... if she and Frizzly can just survive the day.

About the Author
Shelly Chalmers’ first favorite book was Cinderella, so once she could form letters, naturally she turned to romance where everyone “loved” each other—though mostly because she didn’t yet know how to spell “like.”
A 2014 RWA Golden Heart® finalist, she has a bachelor’s degree in English and French, and has never lost her love of romances and their happily-ever-afters. Her stories run the gamut from Regency shifters to space opera. All include a touch of magic, a sense of humor, and a dab of geek. She makes her home in Western Canada, where when not reading, writing, crafting, or hunting unusual treasures and teapots, she wrangles a husband, two daughters, and four nutball cats.
