Deep in the wildlands, Riley has lived by his grandmother’s two rules: Don’t wander far. And alphas are dangerous creatures who are to be avoided. With rules like that, Riley was perfectly content to live out his days on his small homestead. But when a wildfire drives him from his home, leaving him lost and wandering, his only goal is to find a place to rebuild his life of solitude. But when he is rescued by the tall and handsome alpha wolf Jack, he is both wary and intrigued. Despite his long ingrained distrust of alphas, he can’t quite bring himself to fear his savior.
Jack’s life was going great. He had finally been given the honor of leading his pack’s hunts, and he was ready to stand by his brothers and help lead the Summerwood pack. So he’s not thrilled when raids by a band of rogue shifters puts the pack on lockdown. After a fight with his brother, he escapes the confines of his village, only wanting to get away for a little while. When he runs into a human omega with fiery red hair from the wildlands, he can’t stop himself from getting rather attached.
