Daisy Munroe had always been a failure as a shifter. Her entire life she’d been told she was weak, that she didn’t have good instincts; useful only as a breeder as long as she was paired with a strong partner so that her unfortunate genetics wouldn’t be passed on to future offspring. While the distinction hurt, she had had little choice. That was the way things were in her pride and she’d never known anything different. Now living in the wolf territory of Malsum Pass, Vermont Daisy was in for quite a surprise. Women here had a voice and weren’t afraid to use it. They had jobs, they followed their dreams, and they were even treated as equals… This mountain territory felt like freedom, but it was all an illusion. After all, Daisy and her sister were fugitives wanted for murder. Aleksandr Stepanov had been hired to find the two runaway females and return them to their pride. So why was he hesitating when he had them in his sights? Maybe the cold mountain air had affected his brain, but he was intrigued by the female whose story didn’t match up to the one he’d been told, and he was definitely more attracted to her than was strictly appropriate. His need to protect her even surpassing his need to seek vengeance on the monsters that had created him.

For Her


Susan Fuller has been in love with Sebastian Black since she first met the bear shifter, but because of her actions, he’d left town and hadn’t returned. Despite ten years of absence, she has never given up hope that he would one day come home to his family and to her. When war breaks out between the feline and bear shifters in her home town, Susan is sent away for her protection and takes the opportunity to travel east to Malsum Pass, Vermont, Sebastian’s last known location. After being betrayed by those closest to him, Sebastian Black has made his home with the wolf pack of Malsum Pass. Often referred to as Black Bastard due to his surly nature, he’s given a wide berth and he prefers it that way. His greatest wish is to be left alone so when Susan Fuller, a pest from his past shows up practically on his doorstep, Sebastian is less than thrilled. But the more time he spends with Susan, the more he feels himself changing… Can her love mend this wounded bear and bring him home?
