Margie McLean loves her life just the way it is. As the single alpha of the London, Montana pack, she leads her wolves and makes her own decisions. When she stumbles upon an injured wolf, she has no idea that her quiet life is about to take a dramatic turn.

Zane Moskos never imagined that the mission his tyrannical alpha sent him on would lead him to his mate. Now he’s faced with the choice of defying the man who holds his sister hostage or losing the woman that fate has decreed is his.

In order to save his sister and gain his freedom, Zane must convince Margie he can be trusted. Can they work together or will the passion they feel overwhelm them both?

Review:  *Warning, spoilers may be ahead* A vegetarian werewolf just doesn’t seem to work, especially when she is the Alpha in her pack.

Margie Mclean finds herself in a predicament when she takes in a stray werewolf named Landa. Landa came to them hurt. Not asking what had happened, Landa settles in when all of a sudden her past comes back to haunt her.

Margie leads her pack in the hunt for food, a guilty pleasure she enjoys some of the meat of the deer. Landa, as if reading her mind, brings her a bone and she enjoys the marrow. Margie is enjoying her meal and they hear hunters.

Finding a wounded wolf, Margie weaves some magic to throw the hunters off the trail and they are able to get the injured wolf back to the compound to help him. Margie instantly feels and attraction to the injured wolf and realizes that he is her mate.

Sent to find Landa against his will, Zane gets shot by hunters and ends up in the very compound that Landa is in. As he lies in the hospital area Margie comes in to question him and he also realizes that they are destined to be mates. He explains why he is there and that he is bound by a silver bracelet around his neck that makes him do the bidding Sid, the very same were that Landa escaped from.

Due to the chemistry at times they seem to want to get off track and complete the mating process but they end up sticking together and take Sid down.

A different take on mating in a pack and evil magic comes into play. Not a bad short story.
