About this ebook

Terra is shiftless --- a werewolf uncomfortable in her own animal skin. 

A decade after learning to squash her wolf and flee the repressive village where she grew up, the packless ache still gnaws at Terra's insides. But despite her yearnings, she struggles against being reeled back into her old life. 

To Terra's dismay, her father and half a dozen of his henchmen finally ambush her and demand her return. Yet they do offer one way out --- hunt down her nephew Keith, teach him to shift, and bring the youngster back into the fold in her place. 

Problem upon problem piles up as Terra strives to do her father's bidding. The female shifter has hidden from her wolf for so long that she finds herself unable to change back into canine form, and she also realizes that her nephew is too good-natured to survive for a minute walking in his grandfather's footsteps. Plus, there's an alpha standing in her way who's equal parts enticing and terrifying. 

Will Terra be able to relearn her werewolf abilities --- and overcome her morals --- before her father steals away her hard-earned independence? And as that tantalizing alpha reels her in closer and closer, the question becomes --- does she really want to stay away? 

Don't miss the first book in a series that has been described as a "good choice for Patricia Briggs fans." 

"I apply my "Briggs Test" (is it on par with Briggs) to these novels. I'm happy to report that Shiftless clearly passes that test." --- The Mysterious Amazon Customer

"If you are a fan of Patricia Briggs, I think you are going to start collecting Aimee Easterling." --- Chris B.

"Romantic urban fantasy at its finest" --- txdoc

"This isn't an instant smell and mate type shifter romance.... This is the type of book for someone who enjoys wolf shifters, pack dynamics, a strong female lead, and the ability of that female to move on with her life and mature into who she was meant to be." --- Dan's Wife

"Exquisite worldbuilding underpins this tale a a young woman coming to grips with her werewolf nature, her self-chosen exile from her pack, and her new relationship with Wolf, the Alpha of another, much less traditional, wolf pack." --- Carla M.

"If you like urban fantasy, you cannot beat Aimee Easterling" --- Inquirer

i always find it difficult to get into werewolf type stories because of the stringent gender roles and dominant vs subordinate characters but i appreciated this authors' attempt at subverting those stereotypes. yhe story seemed a little rushed towards the end. I was expecting a longer explanation pf the outcome between her and her father and her reuniting with her mate.

This 1st book in the series begins with a slow word build and then seemed to rush over the last part. A more detailed ending with more steam woven into the awaking relationship would have given the storyline more substance and left me with an emptiness/unfulfilled. I read the book in a few hours.

I think it would be great, but this first volume turned out to be a boring one. Well, the tension only build in the last chapters, but the fight for Supremacy only last with a few paragraphs. No action here.
