Samantha Anderson is carrying out her grandmother’s last wish and visiting the Northwest to learn about her family’s heritage.

She’s surprised by her immediate attraction to the five McAllister brothers: sexy big brother and pack alpha Gabe, hot carpenter twins Bart and Nick, and young and sweet fitness trainer twins Eddie and Andy. She’s even more surprised when they all decide to pursue her.

What she doesn’t know is that the wolf-dog shape-shifting brothers have recognized her as their mate and are determined to win her over so she’ll agree to a formal mating ceremony which will tie her to them forever.

The only holdout is Gabe, who worries about mating with a human and wants to learn more about her before revealing their secret. To do this, he decides to spy on her in wolf-dog form. That’s when he finds out that Samantha has a secret of her own.



Veterinarian Lena Windsor grew up expecting to be mated to shape-shifter Alex James and his brothers, Joe and Will, when she finished university, but when military vet Alex leaves the three of them behind to re-enlist, she builds a new life for herself, eventually coming home to take over her fathers’ practice in Harmony, where she reconciles with Joe and Will.

One day, Lena begins to suspect that someone has been prowling around her house while she’s at work and uses a nanny cam to find the culprit. She’s shocked to see a very changed Alex, who is dealing with a severe war injury by bonding, in wolf-dog form, with the stray dog she adopted who has a similar injury.

She’d never turn away an injured animal, not even when he’s also the man who broke her heart. Can she help him to heal without falling in love with him again?



Penelope Levinson, owner of the Sunshine Cafe, and wolf-dog shape-shifting firefighter cousins Kent & Tucker O’Mara and John & Jack Stephens have known all their lives they were destined to be together.  So why won’t the mating ceremony work?  They’ve been trying since she turned twenty-five, and failure after failure is driving them apart.  Mating has become a chore, not a pleasure, and they are getting tired of people asking them when they are going to settle down, mate, and start a family.

They decide to give up on the ceremony if one last try doesn’t work, but what does that mean for their relationship?  Without the ceremony, Penelope faces exhaustion trying to handle the demands of the four brothers.

And then there’s Oliver McKay, the new doctor in town and a human.  Why does Penelope suddenly find herself attracted to him?  Does this mean it’s time to give up on love with her wolves and move on?

STORY EXCERPT – Taken by Wolves

Just then, a movement caught her eye. Coming around the side of the house was a wolf. No, make that two wolves. No, three.

And they were strangers to her. To non-shifters, all wolves pretty much looked alike, but to her shifter eye, there were differences and she knew she had never seen them before, and in her job, she met a lot of people.

She sniffed. Her senses weren’t wolf-dog keen, but there were better than a human’s. There was something vaguely familiar about their scent.

She stood still as they circled her, sniffing her, their eyes wary. The leader let out a slight growl, but she didn’t feel threatened by it. No, she rather thought he was giving orders to the others.

She was right. One of them bounded off around the back of the house. A moment later, a tall, shirtless bearded man appeared walking toward where they stood. He was fastening his jeans and carrying two more pairs over his arms. He tossed them to the two remaining wolves. Quickly, Ginger turned her back.

A moment later, she heard a laugh. It was warm and rich and just ever so slightly mocking.

“You can turn around now. We’re all decent!”

She could see that the three of them were clearly related, triplets, likely. They had the same dark hair and eyes, but the leader who had just spoken had a neatly trimmed beard. Another had hair long enough to tie back, and the third was clean shaven with hair almost militarily short.

“Speak for yourself, Sully. I prefer to be indecent. In fact, I can be positively wicked!” It was the long-haired one, Nate, flashing a grin that matched his words.  Wicked, indeed.

“Nate! We’ve just met. Can you not wait until we’ve all been introduced before you hit on her?” The third brother, the short-haired one, sounded embarrassed. But the long-haired one, Nate, just grinned at Ginger and growled enticingly, wiggling his eyebrows as he smiled while Sully just rolled his eyes.

Ginger laughed. Nate responded by making an exaggerated sexy face at her and waggling his tongue suggestively but with such good humor that she wasn’t at all offended. She also noted his quick glance at his brother. He was definitely trying to push his buttons.

It seemed to have worked. One moment the short-haired brother was glaring and then next he was a wolf and tackling his brother from behind. Nate went down hard, and then he, too, was a wolf and they were wrestling. If she hadn’t grown up around wolves, she’d have been terrified by the growling and biting, but she had. Her cousins played like this all the time growing up.

She laughed harder when Sully glared at his brothers and then rolled his eyes before wading into between them trying to break up the fight. Suddenly, he, too, was wolf and they were all going at it. Ginger chuckled. She had a feeling that they did this a lot.

Going around to the side of the house, she returned quickly to find they were still at it. A couple of turns of the nozzle and the hose was spraying ice-cold water on the battling wolves. It only took a few seconds to stop the fight, and because she was enjoying herself immensely, a few more seconds to soak them completely.

Now there were three dripping-wet, hot, naked men standing in front of her. She realized now, with their hair wet down and slicked back, that they were definitely triplets, identical triplets, hair and beard differences notwithstanding. Not that multiple births were unusual in the wolf-shifter world. And they were all wickedly handsome, if one liked tall, dark, and handsome and lupine. She placed their ages in their early thirties, just a good age for her, if she was looking, which she wasn’t. And if she was, she was definitely not in the market for wolves, although a little voice inside her head whispered that there was nothing wrong with a little fling.

Shut up, voice. These men are strangers, naked strangers.

Naked, well-hung strangers, and they are looking at you like they could eat you up! What would be the harm in giving them a little taste? Think of the fun you could have with three randy wolves.

No. I’m alone with them at Sam’s house that can’t be seen from the road, and my cell phone is back at the office. I’m not getting naked with them. I’m not, no matter how damp they make my panties.

The more she looked at them, the more familiar they seemed, but she knew she hadn’t met them before. She sniffed again. They were definitely familiar.

And then it came to her. Nate. She she’d heard that name before. He had to be Nathan Anderson.

“You’re Samantha’s brothers. I’ve heard about the three of you. Sullivan, Benjamin, and Nathan, right?”

“Sully, Ben, and Nate. Only Sam and our mother, when she’s mad at us, use our full names.” The bearded one stepped forward with his hand extended. “You must be Ginger West. We’ve heard about you, too. I’m Sully Anderson.”

Ginger stepped back and looked down to his naked groin area. Sully had the grace to blush. He seemed angry that he was blushing, which just seemed to make him blush harder. Ginger smothered a smile as she turned her back.

“Why don’t we save the introductions until you three have your pants on again,” she suggested, turning her back again.
