Naomi Varden has just lost everything to the other female shifter in her pack. Her intended mate, her future position as alpha female, and now she's being punished for trying to defend what was hers. So she runs. She ends up in North Carolina and falls in with the Morrell wolf pack. They are more than happy to take in a new female wolf shifter.
The Morrell pack is everything she's ever wanted. Wealthy. Powerful. Feared. The upcoming alpha is without a mate, and she knows she would be perfect for him. Everything she's ever wanted is finally within her grasp. Only it's harder than she believed to leave her past behind. The sacrifices she must make threaten to erase who she is. But she's quickly learning a few things: not all packs are the same, friendship is found in the unlikeliest of places, and secrets can be very dark.

E. C. Newman is a storyteller at heart. Born and raised wherever the military sent her family, she never found a direction for her writing until she found herself in Ancient History her freshman year of college, desperate to stay awake. Bringing stories alive in FanFiction, poetry, and original work gave E. C. the distraction she needed and the confidence to add a Writing Major to her bachelor's degree. After a stint in acting school in Los Angeles, she gained a MA in Writing for Young People from Bath Spa University in Bath, England.
E.C. currently lives in Georgia with her dog of indeterminate breed, where she teaches high school English and assistant directs in the theatre. She can't help but find it hilarious that she’s now teaching how to write an essay when she so hated them as a student herself. In her spare time, E. C. reads too much, watches too much, and laughs just enough. She actively avoids growing up by writing stories about high school and the trials and triumphs that accompany it.
