When he saw his mate for the first time, her life was in danger. Keeping his Tiger a secret was no longer an option.
Every day was a struggle for Tiger Shifter, Devlin Kerr. Booted from one Police Department due to his ‘questionable attitude,’ he’d landed in Sylvan City determined to give the career another go. What was an Alpha to do?
Three weeks of even more bull and inside politics was already souring him on law enforcement all together when his Captain suckers him into working extra security at a society event.
A society event that ends in gunfire and blood.
And smack dab in the middle of the crosshairs? His mate.
Secrets be damned, Devlin did what it took to save her and suddenly danger is coming at them from everywhere.
Death, he could handle. Mayhem? Sure, just another walk in the park.
People going after his mate? That wasn’t going to fly. He was going to do whatever it took to keep her safe from danger…
…but who was going to keep Paige Lundin safe from him? Less than a day after they’d met, she was The Tiger’s Innocent Bride.

Book Series: Sylvan City Alphas
Boone Wayland was a shifter, a problem solver, and a protector, not always in that order. When he decided he wanted to find his mate, there was only one place to go… the Paranormal Dating Agency masterfully run by Gerri Wilder. He’d visited the website in the few minutes that he’d managed to wrest control of his computer from the teenaged shifters he fostered and read a number of her reviews… okay, all of the reviews. He contacted the Agency because it was the boys that he’d been thinking of.
Okay, not really.
He wanted a mate.
Hungered to hold her to him, make her smile, lose himself in her eyes and her body for the rest of his life.
But, finding a mate when he had a store to run and a houseful of boys to raise made the traditional model of ‘dating’ nearly impossible.
It seemed like a Hail Mary pass one might make in a sporting game, but if there was one thing Boone didn’t have in his life it was time. So, he picked up the phone and asked Gerri for her special brand of help.
Willa Barnes wanted a family so bad she could almost taste it. The future would be as sweet as the fruit pies that she was known for at her boyfriend’s Diner, and it was all within her grasp.
But that was before Charlie ran off with the hostess at the diner, leaving Willa to watch the shop while he was on his honeymoon in Las Vegas.
Hearing her woeful story, her favorite customer has a crazy idea. It turns out he knows a matchmaker and that feisty matchmaker just might know the perfect man for curvaceous Willa.
Only, he’s not just a man.
Willa’s fascinated by the idea of meeting a bear shifter, but it’s not just becoming a wife that’s the offer on the table. He’s got a whole bunch of teenaged shifters that are waiting for her too.
Is this ‘insta-family’ just what Willa wants or will the reality of it be Too Much to Bear?
The first rule about owning a fight club is it’s no place for kids. Even shifters.
Cage Gamble, a Jaguar Shifter in Sylvan City, owns the first licensed ‘fight club’ where men and shifters could fight in the ring or the cage. It was a good life, some work and a lot of play, until he was called to England to take custody of his best friend’s daughter. Her father’s sudden passing left her in Cage’s care. He could handle a berserk bear shifter or a gorilla full of rage with one hand, but a moody teenage lioness? Not so much.
Just when he was nearly ready to string himself up from the nearest light post and jump, his old commanding officer throws him a lifeline.
Maggie Fordice, the Colonel’s once rebellious daughter, is all grown up and moving home to Sylvan City. On paper she was just what he needed, a teen-whisperer. But up close and very personal, she was also what he didn’t need. Whip smart and voluptuous, she was a woman who could send him up in flames with a look or a wiggle.
Maggie was ready to light a match and burn his resistance to the ground, even when helping him brought danger to her doorstep. Was Cage going to fight what he felt for the fiery woman who lived across the street? Or was he going to fight for what they could have… everything?
He made his career fitting into the darkest roles amongst the dregs of society infiltrating criminal enterprises. Now, the last Boss that he’ll have to convince of his loyalty, is his wife.
Wolfshifter, Dominick Vestri, made his career on his ability be a host of different people, whatever suited the job before him. He was a quick study on cons, burglaries, attacking each assignment with cold precision and a willingness to set aside whatever morals he’d been born with to put the worst criminals behind bars.
When an assignment nearly kills him, Dom quits and takes a job with the SCPD in Sylvan City so that he can return home to this wife, Shea, and their daughter, Brier.
But if he was expecting them to welcome him with open arms, Dom was in for a rude awakening. Shea had been the sole parent and influence in Brier’s life for almost six years, the last thing she wants is Dom back in their lives 24/7. No amount of his smug swaggering ego is going to heal the rift between them, and sex? Ha! That’s the last thing on her mind.
Try as she can to remind herself of that face, her body can’t help combusting every time he touches her.
And Brier? His baby isn’t a baby any more. Instead of his sweet cuddly little girl, she’s sassy as can be and can’t seem to remember who he is. Too bad the only one Dom can blame is himself.
He’s a Rex out of his element when he becomes an insta-dad to his niece. She’s the teacher ready to defend the little girl who won her heart. Trouble is, the Rex is hot for teacher… body and soul.
Graham Keith has his hands full. His sister’s sudden passing leaves him with the responsibility of taking care of little Allie and their Pride. Leading he can handle. He’s got the heart and soul of an Alpha. Little Allie has always had his heart, but he’s never had to care for a child. He’s lucky that she is eager to forgive his mistakes, but her teacher Ms. Hardy isn’t. She’s ready to fight him tooth and nail to make sure he’s doing right by Allie. The problem is that Graham doesn’t want to just get in Ryan Hardy’s good graces, he wants to get in her bed… or her in his bed, or any other available surface, he’s never been picky before… but now it’s different. This feisty female isn’t just any woman, she’s his mate.
Ryan Hardy had two dreams as a child – be a teacher, be a mom, NOT in that order. Out of college for a few years, she’s focused on her work. If there’s a child that needs for anything, she’ll find a way to make it happen and that includes little Allie. Her Alli-Kat. Everyone seems to quake and shake in front of Graham, but Ryan doesn’t. So what if he’s a lion shifter? So what if he’s drop dead gorgeous? So what if he plagues her dreams at night? He’ll do right by his niece or he’ll answer to her!
The school has strict rules against relationships between faculty and parents. That doesn’t matter one bit to Graham, but Ryan loves her job… but Graham’s counting on her loving Allie more.
Ryan wants to know if Graham loves her too, or if all he is… is hot for teacher.
