Book Blurb

Captured and tortured by a pro-human faction responsible for rehabilitating non-humans, Theo’s only sin is having a psychic for a brother. Theo expects to die after his brother, but the Squad has one last use for him—as a sleeper spy to kill the Alpha of the most dangerous wolf pack in the country. Theo’s nearly given up on living, until he comes face-to-face with a feral and possessive werewolf able to strip his heart bare and help him heal both inside and out.


When a naked, bleeding human is dropped on pack land borders, werewolf enforcer Joe knows Theo is trouble. Theo can’t be trusted, but Joe’s wolf recognizes its fated mate. Joe defies his pack and even his Alpha to keep Theo, but can Joe help break Theo’s brainwashing, or is he doomed to lose his mate?


Book Review

The Devil Hills wolves face another threat in this fifth volume of the series, and it comes from the same Humans Matter idiots who think that pure humans are superior to those with esper abilities or those who are shifters. Voss is an evil man who has already caused much pain working with the Discipline Squad, and he continues to torture anyone who is not fully human in the name of rehabilitation. What emerges in this latest story is far more sinister than what he has done previously. Theo is the one who suffers most, but his wolfshifter mate, enforcer Joe, does not exactly have an easy time of it either. Throw in a few twists and turns, and the result is a suspenseful step to another Devil Hills wolf finding his mate.

Theo has suffered terribly at the hands of a pro-human faction responsible for “rehabilitating” anyone they deem nonhuman. He can barely remember his name, is close to starvation, and knows the orders that Voss has implanted in his head can’t lead to anything good. When Voss finally kills Theo’s brother and dumps him at the border of the Devil Hills pack, he knows that he is there to do evil, but can’t remember what it is.

Joe is one of Alpha Deacon’s fiercest enforcers, and he never imagined he could find a mate – never mind a human. He knows Theo is his mate as soon as they meet, no matter how much he doesn’t want this to be true, but he also understands that Theo is not bad because he wants to be. How to stop Theo from doing what Voss wants, healing his brainwashed mind, and keeping his pack safe at the same time is a major challenge for Joe.

Theo and Joe start out as strangers, but with a lot of fear and preconceived notions between them. Theo struggles with wanting some peace and quiet with a wolfshifter he is quickly falling for – he knows he is bound to hurt the pack but can’t remember how. Joe doesn’t want to hurt his pack, needs to keep his mate close, but has no idea how to do it. The men begin to build trust as they get to know each other, but that connection is tested brutally once the “hidden instructions” Voss left behind in Theo’s head begin to surface.

If you like to explore paranormal worlds with all kinds of unusual abilities and more than one type of shifter, if you want to see two strangers fall in love as they fight for each other’s safety, and if you’re looking for a suspenseful read that is full of threats, surprises, and lots of emotion, then you will probably like this novella.
