Book Blurb

The last thing Russell wants to do is go back to the home that his childhood Wolf pack exiled him from. Yet, like it or not, that's where Russell's sorry ass is going. The fact that he's doing so in order to attend a wedding between his old Alpha and a feline shifter only make it more aggravating. Just when Russell least expects it, a most welcome diversion comes, via way a cute, sexy Lynx shifter named Dalton.

First edition published by eXtasy Books, August 2011.

Book Review

I can’t believe I missed any of the ‘Lost Shifters’ stories but now that the author has re-released them I’m discovering a few. There’s actually a lot of positives in that because I’ve always loved this world, Mitchell’s Coalition, and all of the wonderful characters, and getting to read these gems that are new-to-me is pure fun.

Russell is an interesting wolf, to say the least. He was exiled from his pack because he’s gay although the former alpha claimed it was because Russell was a thief. Well, he wasn’t a crook then, but he became one in order to survive, and now he has wealth and power plus a reputation as someone not to be messed with. Okay, so his profession is a little shady but he doesn’t feel bad for doing what he had to. In fact, the only reason he’s attending the reception for his cousin, Chris the alpha of the wolf pack, is to try to mend the bridges between Chris and Ranger, Russell’s other cousin who is a member of the coalition and mated to an eagle shifter.

Russell can’t believe it when he meets Dalton, an incredibly sexy lynx shifter, and member of the Coalition. He’s even more surprised when Dalton makes it plain how much he wants Russell. Russell is used to being used for his money and power so Dalton’s honesty is refreshing and very welcome.

I really enjoyed this introduction to Russell and Dalton which continues in their story (book fourteen). This meeting is the start of Russell’s change from criminal to straight man (in his career, at least) and it’s easy to see why Russell would want to make himself into a better person for this young, inexperienced lynx who captured his heart.
