What do you do when you finally prove the existence of the otherworld, but the ghosts kick your ass?
For Trent Pielmeyer, the answer is run like hell—away from his hostile family, away from the disbelieving cops, and far, far, far away from anything that smacks of the supernatural. After seven years’ captivity in a whacked-out alternate dimension, he is so over legend tripping.
When Christophe Clavret spots Trent in a Portland bar, he detects a kindred spirit—another man attempting to outrun the darkness of his own soul. But despite their sizzling chemistry, Trent’s hatred of the uncanny makes Christophe hesitant to confide the truth: he’s a werewolf, one of a dwindling line, the victim of a genetic curse extending back to feudal Europe.
But dark forces are at work, threatening more than their growing love. If Christophe can’t win Trent’s trust, and if Trent can’t overcome his fear of the paranormal, the cost could be Trent’s freedom and Christophe’s humanity. Or it might be both their lives.

Russell’s heartwarming second Legend Tripping paranormal (after Stumptown Spirits) is infused with sexy sizzle, raucous adventure, and lively characters. There is a magnetic attraction when Trent Pielmeyer and Christophe Clavret meet by chance in present-day Portland, Ore. Disheartened Trent just wants to get his life back on track after being held captive in supernatural prison; he wants nothing more to do with the mystical. Suave Christophe, a werewolf, is struggling to abide by his father’s archaic succession traditions, and he senses a kindred spirit in Trent. Their sexy banter leads to a romp in the sheets that promises much more. Trent is forthcoming with the demons he is facing and is pleased by Christophe’s understanding nature. Christophe is trying to figure out the best time to tell Trent he’s a werewolf; in the meantime, he’s repressing his overdue need to transition to his wolf form. Plans go awry, traitors are treacherous, and now Christophe’s life is in grave danger, but Trent and a crowd of quirky side characters are there to save the day. Readers of the first book will be able to dive right into this story; others may take a little while to get up to speed.
