Adam Sotiros, a werewolf, could not resist harassing Vampire Philippe Maquereau, whenever possible. Both clans had been at war for hundreds of years. However, the Department of Extra Normal Affairs had sent a team to try to negotiate a cease fire with the two groups, in order to avoid injury to humans. Things come to a head with the human race’s latest demand for the shifters and vampires to end the feud or be destroyed. The only solution is for Adam and Philippe to fake becoming bonded. The question at the moment, is the bonding fake or prophecy?

Fuchsia: Fanged Trouble is an exciting well written story of two opponents who secretly love each other. The plot is action packed. The characters are believable. Adam and Philippe have a personal history together, which adds fuel to their existing dilemma. Their first meeting is one of combat on Adam’s part while Philippe had fallen head over heels in love with Adam. Philippe is old world elegance; he enjoys the finer things in life. He is well versed in financial matters, although using the internet for stock exchange information perplexes him. Adam is internet savvy, could care less about being fancy, and lives in the here-and-now world. Adam dislikes the smell of vampires; nevertheless, he had never found Philippe's scent objectionable. Philippe is the type of man Adam is most attracted to, although he tries hard to resist Philippe’s appeal. The dialog, as well as their interactions to each other, exhibited a love/hate relationship.

However, zombies invading the city become the starting place for Adam enlisting Philippe for help. The wonderful Winnie Jerome has created an impressive, as well as enjoyable, saga interwoven with humor and a touch of intimacy.
