Anything can happen under a full moon 


For Grant Wade, former Texas Ranger and a Lycan Alpha, Desperado is the perfect refuge for his desert pack and a safe shelter for other werewolves. But when Paxton Hall returns after decades away, Grant's not sure what he's protecting her from more—a rogue predator on the prowl, her own true nature or his animal desire… 


Naturalist Maya Everton is threatened by a pack of wolves until another wolf drives them off. Her rescuer is Lieutenant Ryan Blaiddinger of the Alpha Force—an elite unit of shape-shifters. Though Ryan's mission is at odds with Maya's, the scientist and soldier must unite to protect area wolves from locals…though resisting their own natural instincts may be their toughest battle.
