Alpha wolf Acksel wakes up one morning in the bed of the one human who was kind to him in school. Now, ten years later, Brynn Mara is snuggled up at his side, smelling like passion and sweet dreams. Even though Acksel has declared that his pack members can mate with humans from now on, he knows that any woman he takes as his mate will have a target on her back. Especially if she's a fragile human. Deciding it's better to cut things off than string her along when there's no hope for a relationship, he leaves without a word and ignores her. But it doesn't matter if Acksel acknowledges her or not, because their night of passion has left a permanent reminder of what happens when one drunk wolf forgets protection. Angry, banished wolves from his pack discover Brynn's secret and decide to use her against Acksel. His worst fears have come true, and the only woman who ever touched his heart is now suffering because of his mistake. This book contains one ticked off, emotionally damaged alpha, the human woman who can tame him, and a sweet little surprise that no one expected.

Dominance and submission mean different things to werewolves than to humans. Once Marsdon and Bennett try things the human way — nothing can ever be the same for them again. Werewolf tradition is very clear. The alpha pair is the corner stone of the pack. Equality between the alphas is everything. Alphas mate with alphas. Human leather clubs work to different rules. Dominants mate with submissives. Power is exchanged freely and for the ultimate pleasure of all. Sometimes the most alpha men in the club find happiness with the most omega men. And sometimes the omegas are more than they first appear to be. A wolf might be able to hide his identity and play anonymously in those clubs for a little while, but he can't ignore reality forever. Marsdon and Bennett have lives to get back to, they have packs to return to...they have wolfen traditions to follow. They have just one more night together before they have to lose each other forever. All they can do now, is make the most of it. Reader Advisory: This book contains both human and werewolf styles of dominance and submission.This book also contains blood play and non-sexual violence.

It's been four years since the tragedy that claimed the Mountain Ridge Alpha and Mel, the mutual mate of Alpha Hassan Amari and the beta Toval. As a mated Alpha-beta pair, Toval and Hassan have managed to defy the odds and come through tragedy stronger than ever, despite the shroud of secrecy that surrounds Mel's death. Strange letters from an impossible sender throw the fragile balance of their healing into question. Alphas are dying in Europe, and a group of omegas with a deadly mission has taken credit. They call themselves Epsilon, and they're hell-bent on overthrowing the hierarchical system that has ruled the shifter world for as long as anyone can remember. Meanwhile, the success of the European Council breeding program, known colloquially as the Futurus Initiative, has increased pressure on stateside Alphas to conform in order to save their dwindling population. Hassan and Toval's joint effort to fight the Initiative seems to have failed, but Epsilon has less peaceful methods in mind. One letter changes everything. The leader of Epsilon chooses Hassan and Toval to deliver his ultimatum: Abandon the initiative, or every pack Alpha in the Council will die. Toval and Hassan find themselves the unwitting messengers of this twisted message, pitted against a corrupt Council and a ghost of the past who will stop at nothing to get what he wants. Time will tell if their love can withstand this dangerous new alliance. This is book 10 of the Mountain Shifters Series and contains story elements that are meant to be read in the context of the events in the rest of the series. This work is meant for mature audiences only.

Three hundred years had passed since the Tyr conquered the people of Earth as they had previously overcome numerous races throughout the galaxy. In their victory they had taken the very heart out of the human race, isolating the true individualists, the geniuses, all the people who represented the hopes, dreams, and discoveries of the future, and imprisoning them in dome colonies on planets hostile to human life. There the Tyr, a race which itself shared a unified gestalt mind, had left these gifted individuals to work on projects which would, the conquerers hoped, reveal all of human kind's secrets to them. Yet Daetrin's secret as one no scientist had ever uncovered, for down through the years he had succeeded in burying it so well that he had even hidden his real nature from himself. But, taken into custody by the Tyr, there was no longer any place left for Daetrin to run, no new name and life for him to assume. Now he would at last be forced to confront the truth about himself—and if he failed, not just Daetrin but all humans would pay the price...

THE FIRST PSY/CHANGELING NOVEL from the New York Times bestselling author of Shards of Hope, Shield of Winter, and Heart of Obsidian... The book that Christine Feehan called "a must-read for all of my fans." In a world that denies emotions, where the ruling Psy punish any sign of desire, Sascha Duncan must conceal the feelings that brand her as flawed. To reveal them would be to sentence herself to the horror of “rehabilitation”—the complete psychic erasure of everything she ever was…Both human and animal, Lucas Hunter is a Changeling hungry for the very sensations the Psy disdain. After centuries of uneasy coexistence, these two races are now on the verge of war over the brutal murders of several Changeling women. Lucas is determined to find the Psy killer who butchered his packmate, and Sascha is his ticket into their closely guarded society. But he soon discovers that this ice-cold Psy is very capable of passion—and that the animal in him is fascinated by her. Caught between their conflicting worlds, Lucas and Sascha must remain bound to their identities—or sacrifice everything for a taste of darkest temptation…
