Blurb: Two Alpha shifters join together to lead their pack and build a family.
Commitment, loyalty, and strength aren’t enough to make Wesley Stone’s birth pack accept an Alpha with a physical imperfection, even if it’s a meaningless mark. Putting the safety of his pack above his own wellbeing, Wesley trades himself for another Alpha and agrees to mate with a stranger in a mysterious, insular pack.
Alphas from Jobe Root’s family have led the Red River pack from the first day shifters walked the earth. Now the time has come for Jobe to fulfill his destiny, but to do that, he needs his mate by his side. Spiritual, easygoing Jobe reveres Mother Nature and trusts in fate, yet he can’t help being nervous about how his mate will react to his new life in Red River, his new life with Jobe.
Two Alphas with contrasting personalities, different upbringings, and divergent beliefs come together for the good of their packs. But to stay together, Wesley and Jobe must see beyond the surface and embrace every facet of themselves and their union.
Review: Well Hell's Bells,.. I didn't see that coming! Yep I might be the only person to read this book and never saw that part of the story coming. I liked Wesley from the first page. I thought he was a strong Alpha but was sorely mistreated by his uncle and his pack. Ostracizing someone for a birth defect and actually trading them for a stronger Alpha,... what a crap move by his uncle.
Sent away to mate with a man he's never met, Wesley thought he could do it just to have the chance to be a true Alpha for a well known pack.
Miscommunication and half truths are never a good way to start a relationship but once Jobe and Wesley get together they both realize that no matter what they knew before, the feelings they have now are the only thing that matters.
