"Werecheetahs, zombies and magic!"
Root woman Donna Tucker has felt the itch to move on for
some time now. After a succubus killed her lover right in
front of her, Donna has not allowed anyone to get close to
her. For the succubus is after Donna and will kill anyone
Donna is close to. Even though she feels comfortable with
the werecheetahs, Donna knows they will not be able to keep
her safe and so she must move on. However, something
happens which forces Donna to change her mind. After Kyle
Innes gives his little brother one of her herbal mixtures,
he falls into a coma. Donna knows she didn't do anything
wrong, so it must be with some of the herbs she got from
her source in Seclusion. Even though she hates going
anywhere, Donna must leave her home to travel to Seclusion.
Adhering to her own moral code, since she feels responsible
for the young man's coma, Donna will do whatever is
necessary to correct the problem. The fact Kyle Innes is
the one man Donna is attracted to really doesn't influence
Werecheetah Kyle Innes hasn't had an easy life. The rest of
his family is pure human—something the leader of the
werecheetahs isn't happy about. Their leader would prefer
that Kyle break all contact with his human family and live
among the other werecheetahs. However, Kyle isn't about to
do that. Kyle's father did his best to destroy his family.
The man even caused his younger brother's illness—something
Kyle feels responsible for. Now, Kyle has managed to gain
custody of his brother and sisters and has no intentions of
ever breaking contact with them, or of allowing his father
back into their lives. So when his younger brother ends up
in a coma from one of Donna's mixtures, Kyle will fight his
attraction to the woman and make her pay.
What happens when Donna gets to Seclusion to find her
source? Will she be able to find the man who sent her the
herbs? Is there something evil in Seclusion? Is there a
chance of a relationship between Donna and Kyle? Will
Kyle's younger brother come out of the coma? Will Kyle be
able to forgive Donna?
SEDUCTION ON THE PROWL is a thrilling story of shape
shifters and magic. Marcia Colette has come up with some
interesting twists to different types of supernatural
creatures. But in the end, this is a paranormal romance and
the hero and heroine must learn to deal with and trust each
other before they can solve the mystery of Seclusion. Not
to mention, Donna is hiding something very important, about
herself and her source. All in all, an entertaining read
with enough variety to keep anyone's interest.

Something is sucking the life from the habitants of Seclusion, Tennessee—one citizen at a time.
After ten years of hiding from a stalker in her magically protected woods, root woman Donna Tucker needs to find her uncle who has gone missing in Seclusion. Her legendary healing herbs are making her clients deathly ill. She traces the problem back to her uncle—after his tainted root puts the younger brother of an enraged werecheetah into a coma. Making an enemy of the one man who captured her eye could be deadlier than what awaits her in Seclusion.
Werecheetah Kyle Innes' life is dedicated to holding together the broken family that his abusive father had torn apart. Feeling responsible for his brother's brain damage, Kyle has become his guardian for life. But thanks to the bewitching root woman's screwup, Kyle’s brother is in a coma. He's looking for retribution and will travel to Seclusion to get it...and more than what he bargained for.
One thing is certain. Donna and Kyle need to trust each other long enough to fight the evil that hangs over the town. Otherwise, they'll die before giving their embattled hearts have a chance.
