Under Her Skin by Margo Bond Collins

Lindi Parker works hard at being human, not an easy task for a snake shifter.

Under her skin

She's lucky he's a charmer. He's lucky she doesn't bite. Much...

Lindi Parker works hard at being human, not an easy task for a snake shifter. She has no desire to search for others like her—until a new case changes everything. When Lindi learns that she she's not the only shapeshifter in the world, she also realizes she might be next on a killer's list. 

In order to save herself and the abused children she works with, she will have to team up with Dr. Kade Nevala, a member of the shifter tribe responsible for eradicating weresnakes—and the most attractive man Lindi's ever met. Even more terrifying, she’ll need to embrace her serpent side, a choice that has enormous consequences for Lindi, and for everyone around her.

Sales info:

Under Her Skin has sold steadily since it was released, ranking in the top 100 on Amazon more than once. As the first book of a bestselling series, it continues to sell regularly. This series is probably my most popular, as I regularly receive requests for information about the next book in the series, currently up to 6 books total.

I would particularly like to work with a translator who is interested in translating all books of the series, as I plan to release a boxed set soon, as well.

Sample text:

Nevala and I stared at one another, the sound of our breathing harsh.

The doctor finally broke the silence. “You’re not possible,” he said, running one hand through his hair as he shook his head.

I ignored the implications of the statement. “Counselors? Yes, we are.”

He gave me a sharp look. “That’s not what I meant.” He took a step forward. I leaned farther back, but I was trapped—I would either have to climb up on the bed or push my way past him. I wasn’t sure which would be better.

Then it was too late—he grabbed my upper arms and stared into my eyes. His hands burned hot against my skin. His eyes, too, glittered feverishly, golden highlights churning through the brown.

The intensity of his stare captured me. I drew in another breath, full of the scent of him, and my head swam. The color leached out of the room. This time, though, I couldn’t look away from him, couldn’t hide the way my eyes changed, the pupils narrowing and lengthening. The room shifted into shades of gray, and his golden eyes turned silvery as they held my own.

He inhaled sharply as he saw the transformation and his hands tightened convulsively.

“How are you here?” he whispered, shaking his head.

He pulled me closer to him, staring into my eyes. My pulse pounded in my temples. The muscles of my abdomen started to roil; I was about to shift, and I couldn’t control it.

And I might just be okay with that, some quiet, still part of my mind whispered from far away, because this man terrifies me. I might have a better chance against him in my serpent form.

But something—some instinct deeper than thought—urged me to maintain my humanity.

I still couldn’t break eye contact; his gaze was hypnotic.

He leaned in and kissed me.
