Jace Warden is sent to the Shiftertown in Austin to find a way to free all Shifters from their Collars. But pulling off the Collars can cause Shifters to go mad or kill them outright.
In Austin, Jace meets Deni Rowe, a wolf Shifter with troubles of her own—she was deliberately run down in the road, and while her body has healed, she still has episodes of total memory loss during which she retreats into her pure animal self.
Jace has never met anyone like Deni. Courageous and beautiful, she volunteers to help him test the Collar removal. And as Deni and Jace work together, they feel the mate bond begin. But can Jace help Deni believe she can heal enough to be anyone’s true mate?
This sixteen chapter novella includes a preview of the upcoming Shifters Unbound novel Wild Wolf.

Welcome back to the world of Shifters Unbound!
Feral Heat is about Jace, the son of Eric from Mate Claimed. In this story, Jace travels to the Austin Shiftertown to help learn about how to remove the Collars, which keep the Shifters controlled.
He doesn’t count on meeting a special lady, Denise “Deni” Rowe, a gorgeous wolf Shifter. Jace is a Feline, a snow leopard, and never in his life figured on any interest in a wolf Shifter. And he seriously doesn’t count on the wildness that sparks between him and Deni right off.
Deni is in a difficult place. A motorcycle accident the year before damaged her—though she healed physically, she finds it hard to control her feral side. She now lives with her grown sons from her first mating, as well as her brother and his mate. If Deni stays quiet and enjoys being with her family, she’s fine.
But Jace keeps bringing out the beast in her, and Deni fears it’s only a matter of time before she loses total control.
She can’t help her attraction to Jace, though—he’s handsome, strong, solid, hard but gentle. Their initial attraction heats up in a big way, Jace the only person who seems to understand her.
But when the Collar experiments start making Jace a little crazy, will Deni be able to keep him calm?
Find out in Jace and Deni’s scorching romance, Feral Heat.
