Little Red Riding Hood retold as a futuristic psycho-thriller romance novel?!

What if Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf turned out to be the same person?

The three books in the Dead World series by Jordan Summers. These sound like a lot of fun:


Gina Santiago is a member of an elite tactical team in charge of protecting the world. She’s devoted her life to apprehending the most heinous criminals that prey on society—and now she’s after the worst one yet.

On her own, with no backup, the trail takes her to a dusty, tight-knit town on the fringes of society, where everyone’s a suspect. Even the sexy sheriff, Morgan Hunter, isn’t telling her everything. Gina knows he’s trouble, but she’s inexorably drawn to him.

The closer Gina comes to finding out the secret of this sleepy little town and its big bad sheriff; the closer she comes to catching the predator, the more scared she gets—because she’s beginning to realize that she has a secret too. A secret that will change Gina’s life… and make her the killer’s prey.
$7 at Amazon.

Thrust into a world full of creatures she never dreamed existed, Gina “Red” Santiago is coming to grips with the fact that she's a werewolf while adjusting to her new life in the small town of Nuria. The transition isn’t easy, especially since her boyfriend, alpha werewolf Morgan Hunter, is called away on an important mission.

Unfortunately, someone doesn't want Red to get too comfortable with her new life – someone who will resort to anything, including murder, to run her out of town. Alone among hostile strangers, Red must fight to prove her innocence, to catch a ruthless murderer, and to preserve her relationship with an increasingly distant Morgan.
$7 at Amazon.

The only other book I could find by "Jordan Summers" was Off Limits, part of what seems like a rather explicit line of Harlequin novels:

The official description says:
ATF special agent Delaney Carter despises flying...yet she's landed an undercover gig as a flight attendant! Unfortunately, all the bags of nuts in the world can't disguise the fact that she's the worst in history. But when her assignment--former arms dealer Jack Gordon--boards the plane, Delaney suspects that being trapped in a hunk of airborne metal at 30,000 feet isn't such a bad idea after all. Delaney has her orders: recruit Jack and find out everything he knows about an upcoming weapons sale. But then she finds herself gloriously tangled up in Jack's bed. Lack of judgment? No, sirree! She's just doing her job--over and over and over....
