Joey and the Fox (plus other news)

I must admit, as I was writing this story, I enjoyed myself a lot.  I love foxes, and it was fun to write this.  I also bought myself some Martha Stewart brand sheets with foxes on them.  I finished the first draft of the story on Christmas Day.  It was really nice.  When I was editing, I found this link, and it really helped me find the motivation to keep going:  Foxes are cute, what can I say?  :D

Joey and the Fox

(shifters and partners book three)

Asshole cop. It's Joey's role, and one he's comfortable with. Joey tells gay jokes. He's crude, tough, and thick-skinned. But now he's got a chance to work with a fox shifter—and he doesn't want to lose that opportunity. 

Dylan is a mess: clingy and broken, cheerful but lost, seriously unpredictable…and very gay. But Joey desperately wants the partnership to succeed. He's not willing to lose the fox shifter for any reason, even when Dyl drives him crazy. 

Is there any way to make it work? And will the weird attraction he feels to the cute redhead ever go away?
