TITLE: Bite Me
GENRE: Urban Fantasy
Talbot blamed his mother for the fact he’d spent most of the summer impersonating a nun.
Though the financial system in the Osbourne household had something to do with it, too. That was his father’s fault—a physics professor who left his family the day he discovered his wife and children were all werewolves. The lycanthrope blamed the bastard every time money ran tight.
Which explained his current situation.
“How could you, Talbot?” his mother screamed into the phone. “After everything I’ve done to scrimp and save to send you to the best paranormal university in the country, and you have the nerve to tell me you failed your classes because of test anxiety? What the hell kind of excuse is alcohol therapy?”
Talbot winced and pulled the phone away from his ear. If he didn’t know better, he’d think she was part banshee. He pinched the bridge of his nose, wishing he didn’t have to have this conversation so close to the full moon. “Well when you put it like that, it sounds stupid, Mom.”
“Don’t you stupid me, young man. You have a serious problem here. If you flunk out, you won’t graduate next spring.”
Talbot rolled his eyes. “Look, I’m sorry. It was a bad semester. I messed up. But I don’t know what you expect me to do about it.”
The minute the words left his mouth, Talbot regretted them.
“Do. Do? Oh, I’ll tell you what you’re going to do, Talbot Alexander Osbourne.”
All three names. Not good.
