Bishop Takes Knight
Redclaw Origins Book 1
by McKenna Dean
Genre: Paranormal Romance
New York, 1955. Former socialite Henrietta (“Rhett”) Bishop, destitute after her father gambles away the family fortune, takes a job at Redclaw Security. But Redclaw is no ordinary operation. Part detective firm and part enforcement agency, Redclaw regulates matters involving the growing population of shifters who have emerged since the onset of the nuclear age.
Peter Knight is a nuclear scientist shattered by the death of his wife. Blacklisted by the government and scientific organizations, he drowns his sorrows while searching for the people behind his wife’s murder.
When Rhett is assigned to recruit Knight, their meeting is more than either bargained for—a rival organization will do anything to secure Knight for themselves. Following a lead to locate a missing cache of alien technology stolen from Redclaw, Rhett is thrown back into her previous glittering life with Knight as her pretend boyfriend. But when someone from the past turns up to start a bidding war on the artifacts, Bishop and Knight wind up in a fight for their very lives.

Thank you so much for hosting me!
Welcome to the Dragon’s Den! I’m happy to have you here. Do you have a favorite quote you’d like to share?
Hah! Thank you! Here’s a little snippet from Rhett’s interview with Redclaw Security:
He lifted a disbelieving eyebrow and tapped the Dragon Lady’s letter. “Mr. Billingsley of Haversham’s Insurance claims you broke his hand.”
Damn the Dragon Lady. I should have read her letter before deciding to share it. “Unfortunately, Mr. Billingsley’s hand was where it shouldn’t have been at the time.”
So is the Dragon Lady a real dragon? I love it! What was your inspiration for the book?
LOL! In this universe, she could have been, but in this case she merely held the power of hiring and firing at the temp agency. 🙂
I love dragons – in any form. 🙂 Good luck with your tour! It sounds like a fun book!
Thank you so much! I had a blast writing it! 🙂
