Genre: Paranormal Romance

Somedays Jena Crowe just can’t get a break. Work at the diner never ends, her two boys are bundles of energy, and she’s pretty sure her oldest is about to shift into something furry or feathery. Added to that, changes seem to be coming to the tiny town of Cambio Springs, big changes that not everyone in the isolated town of shapeshifters is thrilled about.
Caleb Gilbert was looking for change, and the quiet desert town seemed just the ticket for a more peaceful life. He never counted on violence finding him, nor could he have predicted just how crazy his new life would become.
When murder rocks their small community, Caleb and Jena will have to work together. And when the new Chief of Police isn’t put off by any of her usual defenses, Jena may be faced with the most frightening change of all: lowering the defenses around her carefully guarded heart.
Shifting Dreams is the first novel in Cambio Springs, the new paranormal romance series from Elizabeth Hunter, author of the best-selling Elemental Mysteries.

Caleb blinked and looked around. He could hear singing. Old songs he’d heard as a child at his grandmother’s feet. He must have been truly exhausted, because he could have sworn he heard Mary Yazzie’s voice and his Uncle Raymond’s low laugh. The smell of a bonfire and fry bread. He shook his head to clear it. No one would know the old songs here. The wind gusted again, and a black slash in the rocks beckoned him from the corner of his eye.
Seven springs… He saw six, where was the seventh?
The old songs rose on the breeze and Caleb turned toward them. His feet moved of their own volition as he approached the black void in the canyon wall. It was a cave cut into the rocks. As he drew closer, he heard a shuffling in the bushes and a silver animal darted in front of him.
He was Mah-ih, ‘he-who-roams-about’ to his grandmother’s people. The large coyote paused in the path, then turned and looked at Caleb. His pelt was silver in the moonlight, his ears large and tilted toward him. Caleb walked toward the animal, but it did not bolt. The coyote walked a little farther down the path, then paused to look at him again. Caleb followed.
The animal darted under a fence that Caleb hopped over. Then there was another path, this one not marked by gravel or concrete.
It twisted over the rocks and through the brush, leading him toward the void. The coyote ran upon it, darting forward before he paused and turned, waiting for Caleb to follow. He felt the wind at the back of his legs and he pressed on. The moon hid behind the canyon walls as he made his way into the darkness. Pulling a flashlight from his pocket, he switched it on and looked around as he entered the cave.
