Takhini Wolves, Book 2
Life in isolation is the safest place for Chase Johnson, a crossbreed who doesnt know which form hell assume next—cougar or wolf. Once a year, his unelected position as spokesman for the Yukon outcasts forces him to visit civilization. This time he runs across someone unexpected. Shes not his mate, but she pushes all the right buttons.
Its taken years for Shelley Bradley to gather the courage to return to her home pack. In spite of being the lowest of the low—a shifter who cant shift—shes determined to make a place for herself as the Whitehorse locals new vet-slash-doctor.
Theres definite electricity between her and Chase, but sex with fellow shifters and the inherent mind games got old a long time ago. Ignoring him seems best. When he shows up at her office with a wound that wont heal, shes stuck—yet drawn to solve this medical mystery.
As they journey deep into outcast territory in search of answers, their powerful sexual attraction crumbles her resistance. But time is of the essence. If a cure cant be found before his human and cougar succumb to his injury, he—and others like him—will die.
Warning: Contains a silver-tongued, hairy-chested, lean-muscled Alpha whos got what it takes to lead in the wilderness and in the bedroom. Yeah, I know…not really much of a deterrent, is it? Throw in continuing territorial wars and a domestic cat. Stir and enjoy the chaos.
“Theres a real chemistry between the characters, laced with humor and snappy dialogue, and no shortage of steamy sex scenes…”
—Publishers Weekly on Silver Mine
“This anthology combines two entertaining reads…”
—RT Book Reviews magazine on Under the Northern Lights
“The intense sexual encounters between Gem and Shaun […] are sure to keep the pages turning.”
—Library Journal on Black Gold

Chase is an outcast, a crossbreed who doesn’t know which form he’ll assume next—cougar or wolf. On his once-yearly visit to civilization, he’s tempted by a woman who’s not his mate, but she sure pushes all the right buttons.
Shelley, a shifter who can’t shift, has made a place for herself as the vet/doctor to her pack. When Chase shows up in her office with a wound that won’t heal, she’s drawn both to him and his medical mystery. But if she can’t find a cure, their attraction will be moot—for he and others like him will die.
