Do strangers want to join Aaron's pack, or wipe it from the face of the earth?

Aaron, Alpha of Minneapolis West, is tired of other werewolves threatening his pack for harboring a gay wolf and his mate. Werewolves have more important things to worry about, with humans closing in on discovering them. But the arrival of two strange wolves on his doorstep, asking for sanctuary, pits compassion against safety. Can he let these two in and still keep his pack and his mate Zach safe? Or is that a risk he can't afford to take?



First edition independently published, April 2013. This edition has been lightly edited and the series number changed from 2.5 to 3.


Book Review

Thank you, Kaje, for giving me more of the Minneapolis West pack, and in particular Aaron, Zach, Simon, and Paul. I adore these men and can't seem to get enough!


There were some interesting developments that definitely stem from ‘Unexpected Demands’ and I was surprised to see that the packs had decided to elect a North American Council. I wasn't surprised that the Chicago alpha was on it, though. I liked him and want to see more. In fact, I'm eagerly waiting for book four so more of this storyline can be explored. I really hope you're working on that, Kaje… *hint hint*


This story offers some exciting events. Aaron's cousin brings a young man, Cord, to see if he can join Aaron's pack. Apparently, Cord's previous alpha didn't like the fact that all the women found him gorgeous, so he banished Cord and cut off his pack bond. While Aaron and his pack are meeting Cord, Aaron gets notice from the North pack alpha that someone dropped a beaten and bloody wolf with FAG carved into his back off for Aaron. Wow. When it rains, it pours.


Even with a novella, Ms. Harper can never have anything be obvious, and I truly adore her writing for it. Now, with new paths for this series to head into, I really can't wait for the next installment! Thank you, Kaje!
