"I, meaning me, Dakota Mayumi Reyes, was running, full-out, for my life..."
Dakota Reyes, a twenty-something private eye who specializes in what she calls "hard-to-prosecute" cases, finds herself in a dark alley one night, about to end up dead at the hands of a young Ted Bundy in training...when a lost, shape-shifting alien named Nihkil rescues her, and inadvertently takes her home with him.
The problem is, his home is in a different dimension, and Dakota has no clue how to get back to Seattle, or Earth, or even her own time period. She finds herself bound to her rescuer, Nihkil, through his "lock," a quasi-biological structure that controls whether he can shape-shift.
As Nik's new lock-mate, only Dakota can open Nik's lock now, and he needs the lock open in order to bring Dakota home. Except Dakota has absolutely no idea how to open it...and the longer she spends in Nik's world, the more that world's inhabitants begin to align against them.
THE GATE SHIFTER SERIES is an unusual shifter romance centering on shifters from another world altogether, called morph. Earth humans remained blissfully ignorant of the existence of alternate dimensions until Nihkil Jamri tries to save private detective, Dakota Reyes, while he is surveying Earth for his human masters. Part urban fantasy, part detective series, part paranormal romance, part science fiction adventure, the Gate Shifter series explores crime solving, interstellar warfare and alien romance with the least likely candidates imaginable.
