Moonlight and Storm
Shapeshifters, conspiracy theories, and an urban myth brought to life. Welcome to the Australian High Country, where secrets and magic lie beneath the melting snow .

After Grace Atkinson's city life crumbles, she’s forced to move back to her childhood home—the sleepy alpine town of Targangil.
When she arrives, she finds herself in the centre of not only her own family drama, but a flurry of mysterious black panther sightings—elusive predators rumoured to roam the wilderness, but whose existence has never been proven.
But when Grace comes face to face with a black panther in the shadow of a looming storm, she becomes determined to uncover the truth behind the sightings once and for all. But her world is shattered when she witnesses the panther transform…into a human being.
Lawson's hidden shapeshifting abilities have always been a closely guarded secret, but as his past catches up with him, Grace's discovery of his true identity exposes them both to danger.
Because he is hunted…and now so is she.

Moonlight and Storm is the first book in the Australian High Country series.
Set in the wild and romantic Snowy Mountains, it tells the story of Grace Atkinson, who discovers a secret world of shapeshifting black panthers…and the evil forces who hunt them.
