Daphne hates the tradition of The Mate. Every autumn, fate brings together the members of the herd who are destined to spend eternity together. She’s not about to give up her freedom for someone who doesn't love her, but she’s shifted into her doe form, and she feels she must go.
When a mysterious man finds her and brings her to his cabin, all she knows is Leos’s not a buck... and he won’t tell her what he is. He’s frustratingly handsome, overly protective, and everything she ever wanted. But the most ancient of traditions goes horribly wrong when she finds out he’s her herd’s most deadly predator.
Daphne must decide if her star-crossed love stands a chance, or if she should run from Leo.
Sneaking into the royal party is punishable by death, but if something doesn’t change in the Badlands, we’re going to die anyway. I only hoped to woo a beta wolf, someone who would overlook my lowly status and help my friends and I have a better life.
Instead, I catch the attention of King Adalai. He’s notorious for being ruthless with omega justice.
Maybe there’s no harm in one dance. In one hot kiss…
When I go into heat, there’s no ignoring what I am. Especially what I can’t have. But the King won’t be denied, and he follows me back to the Badlands.
If he breaks his own rules for me, will it bring our people together or start a revolution?
But he wants out of the underground fighting ring that earned him the nickname Lone Wolf. His only chance of getting another job on a ranch is volunteering at Forever Home’s new rescue farm. He’s a wildcard, and this job requires patience he’s never had.
Delaney’s come to work at Forever Home as the next step of her rehabilitation, but she’s got more in common than the animals at the shelter than the women who work there. It’s a reckless, misunderstood werewolf who sees her for who she really is and treats her in a way she only dreamed was possible. Human.
Delaney shows Shea that actions speak louder than words, and he’ll do anything to give her something she’s never had—a joy-filled Christmas. But first, Delaney must decide if she can accept Shea’s tumultuous past.

The Badlands are in trouble. Someone has been abducting omegas, and the King Alpha has tasked one of his most trusted soldiers to bring them back.
Dagger is my biggest enemy. An alpha that I can't--won't--trust. I insist on joining the mission to keep him in line. But even being the queen's sister doesn't make my job any easier.
Working with my enemy proves harder than I expected. But when Dagger opens his heart and reveals a secret he always meant to keep from me, my hatred of him turns to a much more dangerous emotion. Desire.
Now I'm not sure who the real enemy is, or whether or not the man I've hated for so long is actually the key to my future.
Not a chance. The Werewives are pulling out all the stops for their Christmas special.
Tessa Williams is the executive producer of the hit reality dating show, and she’s made a name for herself by telling everyone else’s story. But putting her career first has stretched her ties with her family.
Wolf shifter Cole Williams is the head coach of the Boise Black Diamonds, and after a long season, he’s ready to reconnect with his wife. He’ll do whatever it takes to make this holiday special for Tessa.
He plans a getaway to Sawtooth Forest, with a camera crew in tow to catch every moment under the mistletoe.
But no reality TV show comes without drama. Cole had no idea bringing his family here would lead to a starring role in a pack war. And when his daughter shifts for the first time, those enemy wolves awaken a warrior.
Can Cole put a new team together on an unfamiliar playing field, or will this trip tear his family apart?
Intercepting Christmas features a guest appearance from the Sawtooth Shifters!
Each week, a Sawtooth wolf finds their forever mate.
Do you have what it takes to be a Real Werewife?
Meet the contestants:
Hi, I’m Jasmine.
The last thing I ever expected was to be on a dating reality show. Everyone thinks I'm crazy to give a mysterious wolf a chance, but when he claims I'm his mate, something tells me he might be right. The Real Werewives originally came to Sawtooth Forest to help film animal adoption videos, but instead they capture my love story with Marcus...but can he keep me safe against a pack that wants revenge?
Hi, I’m Marcus.
I’d been captured by an enemy pack, and now they expect me to help them take Jasmine prisoner. Like hell I’ll do that. Claiming her is my chance at freedom, and a chance to work with her pack for a better life.
But that also means taking part in The Real Werewives of Sawtooth Forest. Having cameras follow my every move is a shock after so much time in the shadows, but they might be our secret weapon when my old alpha refuses to let me move on.
Keep reading for an excerpt!
“Everyone out. Doctor’s orders.” Chandra laughed.
“You heard her.” Marcus’ voice was low and husky.
After what happened on Baldy tonight, there was no way I wasn’t spending the night with him. My inexperience wasn’t limited to the bedroom. It extended to my knowledge of my wolf. Before I came to Granger Falls, I’d met very few she-wolves, and none of them ever discussed their desires with me. It was only by watching The Real Werewives of Alaska that I had any idea what to expect next from my wolf. The Werewives were mostly human, but they all talked about one thing.
It was rising off Marcus, making my skin dewy with desire. My wolf was still close to the surface of my skin, and she was purring, writhing inside me, wanting—no, craving—no, more than that—needing things I couldn’t put into words.
But as my mate, Marcus understood that. We shared a secret language, much more intimate than the one I used to communicate with my twin. We’d speak to each other in touch, emotion, and sensation. Each breath was rough, primal as he led me up the stairs.
I might have a reputation around the Badlands as a troublemaker. I've spent years fighting for justice, but our new arrangement with the royals isn't exactly what I had in mind.
For years, we thought omegas were being abducted and taken to the Human Keep. I recently discovered they’ve gone there by their own will, and they’re thriving. I wonder if I’d be better off leaving the royal court behind and joining them.
When Cassian catches me stealing a military vehicle to make my getaway, he should’ve thrown me into the dungeons and forgotten about me.
Instead, he helps me. The alpha shows me a side of him that I’ve never seen before. One that I can’t live without.
When we get to the Human Keep, we discover a truth that will change the lives of everyone in Luxoria. Will Cassian stay loyal to our covert mission, even if it could cost him his title and possibly his life?
After the humans duped me on a rebellious trip to the Keep, I’ve been placed in the care of one of the king’s generals. Now I’m in more danger than ever. The humans wiped my memory and tried to change what it means to be an omega.
But I’m stronger than that.
With his medical background, Evander should be the perfect alpha to help me recover. His astute gaze and thoughtful manners almost make me forget he’s a brutal alpha. I don’t want him around, but there’s something familiar about the way he looks at me.
As he helps me recover, I realize he plays a bigger role in my past than I ever expected. With Luxoria in peril, he’ll have to trust me with the trust to keep me and the rest of the omegas safe.
I’ve been accused of treason against the Kingdom of Luxoria. Not only is the king looking for me, but the rebel army has also put a bounty on my head. Problem is, I didn’t do it.
Solen promises he can keep me safe. He knows I’d never betray a secret. I’ve kept his for years. It wasn’t just for honor. He’s my mate. Can I show this merciless soldier that compassion will bring our city peace, and that embracing his true nature will make him stronger?
Why does she want me to spend the rest of my life with a man she calls ‘lizard breath’?
She’s an enchantress and she cast a love spell over Tyson Drake fifty years ago. It failed pretty spectacularly, and he’s been trapped in his human form ever since. But she's convinced I can change things. That the magic she’s been teaching me about is enough to make the spell come true.
Now Tyson’s willing to give Gran’s magic one more try and take a chance on me.
I can’t stop thinking about him, but will becoming Tyson’s mate be enough to make him finally shift into his dragon form, or will my magic be the death of him?
As the director of Forever Home animal shelter, Trina can’t ignore the rumors about a vicious dog fighting ring in Granger Falls, Idaho, and rushes in to rescue them. She’ll stop at nothing to keep her furry friends safe, even if it puts her life in danger.
With his pack caught and trapped in a fighting ring, Shadow Channing never expected a beautiful woman to be his salvation. Now she’s a target in their pack’s war and he’ll have to explain to her exactly why the wolves she helped save shifted into their human forms on the full moon.
Freedom won’t be enough to save his pack. To best their captors for good, he must work with the rival wolves he fought in captivity and convince Trina the Sawtooth Shifters have no future without her as his mate.
