Karis Begay is the only surviving heir to the Begay wolves of the Alaskan Pack. Someday she will take her place as Pack Mother which is a lifelong burden she has always carried with pride. It kept her isolated from others and hesitant to let anyone close to her. As she enters her freshman year at Archibald Reynolds College, no one knows who she is or who she is destined to become. It’s a chance at a fresh start, and just maybe… the beginning of something new.
Damon Rossi has been on his own, torn between two packs, most of his life. His true family was found in his brothers of Delta Omega Gamma. Sadness and depression loom over him as he faces his senior year not ready to move on to the next chapter in his life. That is, until he catches the scent of his one true mate. That scent drives his wolf wild as Damon struggles to dominate the previously docile creature as it surges with newfound powers he doesn’t understand.
Damon will do anything to be with Karis, but how will he respond when she tells him her secret—mating her seals his fate as Alpha.
When Karis’s life is threatened, Damon’s powers peak. Can he control them? Or will his wolf be too powerful? Will he find peace with his spirit animal in time to save Karis or face the regret of lost love?
Ember “Emmy” Kenston was raised in the spotlight when all she wanted was to be invisible. A self-proclaimed book nerd, she must live up to the expectations of being the daughter of one of Hollywood’s biggest actresses. Retreating to Archibald Reynolds College gives her a fresh start where she attends classes and happily spends her evenings in the library trying not to be noticed, but Chad notices anyway.
Chad is a squirrel shifter and the only non-canine in the D.O.G. House. He’s totally gorgeous, in the warmer seasons at least, and has made quite the name for himself around campus. Most of the school year he has girls throwing themselves at him, but he’s seen how his brothers are with their true mates, and wants nothing less than to be loved for who he is, not for his summer body. As long as she’s a squirrel of course.
Longing for a mate in no way prepares him for the moment when he first hears her inside his head. The problem is, Ember doesn’t know what’s happening. And worse, Chad’s biggest fear is realised…her animal spirit is not a squirrel.
Can Chad push past his prejudices and accept her as his mate? Or will he turn away from his one true mate forever? That is, if he can even catch her when she freaks out and runs as fast as she can in the opposite direction.
Jade Michaels is a coyote shifter who rebels against society and embraces the negative stereotypes of her kind. Her father bailed on her mother the second she found out she was pregnant leaving Jade to believe that true mates are nothing more than fabricated fairytales. At the start of her senior year at the ARC, Jade is determined to leave her mark and embarks on a campus wide inclusion campaign. Her #1 goal is to take down Greek Row.
Brett Evans was the youngest president of his Delta Omega Gamma chapter and currently also resides as the president of Greek Row at the ARC. He learns of Jade’s crusade when the school administration begins to push back and insist the Greeks become more inclusive. When he goes to crash a campus bonfire party Jade is hosting, he gets much more than he bargains for! Jade Michaels, his sworn enemy is his one true mate.
They may both be coyote shifters, but at first glance that appears to the be the only thing these two have in common.
When they stumble across a deep, dark secret within the walls of the ARC, will they be able to set their differences aside to save the school? Or will their own prejudices towards each other be the fall of Archibald Reynolds?
