A wolf shifter urban fantasy
Wolf’s Blood – Book One
Dee Carman considers herself to be quite ordinary, your average, run-of-the-mill office worker. But her quiet life is turned upside down when she’s kidnapped by the ruthless Noturatii and converted into a wolf shape shifter.
When a shadowy figure helps her escape from the lab, it seems she’s been given a second chance… until she’s kidnapped once again, this time by a pack of wolf shifters living in England’s north. The pack’s leaders try to help Dee adapt to her new abilities, but her animal side is the opposite of Dee in every way; wild, violent and unpredictable, and making peace with the fiery wolf seems an impossible task.
But as she struggles to come to terms with her new life, Dee finds herself caught up in an ancient war between the shifters and the Noturatii, a six-hundred-year-old conflict that threatens not just Dee’s newfound family, but the survival of their entire species.

Wolf’s Guile – Book Four
Genna has never quite felt at home with the wolf shifters. The Grey Watch pack is run on cruelty and competition, a far cry from the dream of safety and family she imagined. Despite this, she clings to the idea of one day fitting in… but her fragile place amongst the wolves is under threat. In an impulsive mistake, Genna betrayed their rivals to the ruthless Noturatii, and her shameful secret has now been exposed.
Tank is a warrior from Il Trosa, the rival pack to the Grey Watch. Second in command to the alphas, he is committed to his duty to protect his adopted family. But he feels a deep sympathy for Genna, seeing the failings of her pack, and he knows that her mistakes are only a symptom of a far greater problem; Sempre, the twisted woman who controls the Grey Watch and who takes pleasure in inflicting pain and torment.
Genna’s actions have broken an ancient treaty, and justice demands that her transgressions be paid for with her life. But both she and Tank know that unless Sempre can be toppled from her throne, the future of the wolf shifters is in grave danger, with war imminent between Il Trosa and the Grey Watch. Together, they will have to use every ounce of cunning they can muster to convince the shifter council of Genna’s innocence, a deadly game in which truth and justice are not always the same thing.

Wolf’s Gift – Book Six
Five years have passed since the events of Wolf’s Lie…
For most of his adult life, Silas has been the protector of the wolf shifters’ pack. Detached, deadly and aloof, he avoids emotional entanglements and kills his enemies with precision. But now, even his formidable skills will be put to the test.
With the Endless War raging on, the Shifter Council makes a monumental decision; they are embarking on a mission to Canada, to find out whether or not an ancient and revered species of shifter still exists – a species that could be a powerful ally, or a terrifying enemy.
Heidi knows she has a knack for sticking her nose into trouble. As a seasoned journalist, not much scares her. She’s travelled through war zones, interviewed refugees and reported on natural disasters. But when she discovers a laboratory conducting twisted experiments, her courage fails for the first time in years. Terrified and on the run from the sinister Noturatii, she knows she’s fighting a losing battle… until a man appears from out of nowhere in the middle of the forest, rescuing her from her pursuers and hinting at a startling underworld operating beneath the fabric of society.
The last thing Silas wants to do is get caught up in Heidi’s problems. His pack is already facing enough threats to last a lifetime and they don’t need new complications. And the last thing Heidi wants to do is risk her life with this scowling stranger, when it’s clear he’s keeping far too many secrets from her.
But with both their futures on the line, these two most unlikely allies will be forced to work together… or see their hopes destroyed as the boundaries of the Endless War are rewritten in a way neither of them could have expected.

That is, until he met Kendrick, the leader of a pack of wolf shifters.
