This is a series of stand-alone stories in which, upon meeting, one or both main characters immediately shift.
The Alpha’s Christmas Mate (Book One)
When Sugar Pierce is asked to be her adopted sister’s Maid of Honor for her Christmas Eve wedding, she gladly steps into the role. As the only snow leopard in the wolf pack, she’d do anything for her adopted family.
Alpha lion Maddox Hayes is happy to stand up as Best Man for his only sibling’s marriage to a she-wolf. As alpha, he’s bound by pride laws to mate a lion female, but he’s never met one who makes his beast purr. When he enters the foyer to walk the Maid of Honor down the aisle, he comes face-to-face with the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen in his life. When she promptly shifts into a snow leopard, he knows that he’s in the presence of his true mate. Her uncontrollable shift is proof of that.
Maddox is eager to make Sugar his mate, even if it means relinquishing his position and power as alpha. As he prepares to step down as alpha, usurpers disregard the pride laws and attempt to take control, forcing Maddox to defend his people and his mate. Will the new couple get to spend their first Christmas together, or will their mating be over before it starts?
