The full moon is their mistress. They are predators of pleasure and pain. Feared by humans, envied by werewolves, the Dire wolves are immortal shifters, obeying no laws but their own bestial natures. Once they were many, but now only eight remain, a dangerous wolfpack forever on the hunt…

The supernatural world is rising up against the human one. The weretrappers want to control the humans, and only the immortal Dire wolves stand in the way of total destruction. Stray, a Dire, and his long-lost brother, Killian, emerge as the leaders of their pack. To keep themselves and the humans safe, the Dires must find a witch as powerful as the one who has been helping the weretrappers.

They find what they are looking for in Kate, a human who survived a horrible car accident that left her back scarred with a handprint no one else is able to see. Stray senses in Kate the powers of a witch and recruits her to help the Dires—all the while knowing that she is so powerful that they will need to kill her once she helps defeat the weretrappers.

Stray doesn’t expect the powerful connection that he feels with Kate, or his irresistible need to protect her. They cannot hide their feelings for each other, and what once was taboo now seems inevitable…

Dear Reader Letter

Dear Reader:

Welcome back to the world of the Dire wolves! I can’t tell you how much fun I had writing this book! There’s love and intrigue, betrayal and renewal, and, as always, lots of banter among the Dires themselves.

This time around, Stray’s the center of attention, and he’s got a big job to accomplish. He must reunite with his brother, Killian, in order to help defeat the Dire Ghost Army, the weretrappers and witch Seb. After that, he can officially check saving the world off his list. Just another day for the Dires, right?

Stray’s instincts lead him to Kate, the witch who will help to save the Dires and Weres. And Stray and Kate were just so perfect together from the start. Their road is, of course, a bit rocky, but Kate, like the Dires, is a survivor in her own right. She’s a strong character who’s not going to be intimidated by anything, not when she’s got Stray’s support. And, as their pasts unfold, they begin to understand their bond and to welcome it.

Angus Black, our favorite FBI agent is back too, and working with Leo Shimmin, the new head of the trappers. Can Cain and the other wolves trust him enough to accept the information he gives them, or is it a trap? I’m not telling…

I’ve included the partial soundtrack for Dire Wants below — my typical soundtrack is about 30+ songs, but these have special meaning for me specifically for this book. My characters are as into music as I am (like Stray and his love for 80’s metal and hairbands.) I hope you enjoy the music!
