As the local house cat shifter, I have three things I adore about my little Kinship Cove life—working at the town library, listening to podcasts about true crime, and dipping into a little catnip on a Friday night. So, imagine my dismay when a man with predator energy and hair the color of a sky on fire comes strolling into my research section and comments on my Dewey decimal system. But when his eyes meet mine and the string of destiny tugs us together, I know this is my fated mate.
There are just a couple of problems.
He’s far too big and dangerous for a little house cat like me. Too predatory for my level of prey. He’s also completely obsessed with me.
What’s it going to take for an introvert like me to tame such a beast?
And what will I do if I find out that taming him isn’t a possibility?
BIBLIOPHILE AND THE BEAST is a paranormal romantic comedy from USA Today bestselling author Ellis Leigh. The story is a standalone PNR rom-com with wit, snark, shifters, and more than just flirting.

No one can understand the tormented life of Dire Wolf Luc. As Alpha of his pack, he should be the most powerful and confident in the bunch, but his ability to sense others—the emotions and presences of existing as both shifter and human—has worn him down. Dire Wolves seem to live forever, but Luc has begun feeling as if the end of his road is approaching. He’s also stuck on a mission he can’t solve, searching for shewolves he can’t find, and failing his pack all the way around.
Cassiel is a woman who makes her own rules and lives her own life—a solitary one in the bush of Alaska with just her sled dogs and a healthy respect for the dangerous lands around her. She has no interest in other people or trying to follow someone else’s rules. But anyone alone in the bush needs to be prepared for predators, and while she’s ready to tackle any threat, there’s one that scares her more than the others. A creature from her nightmares lurking in the dark and howling at the moon.
One soldier struggling with the overwhelming chaos in his mind, one woman terrified of the monsters that seem to haunt her world, and a chance encounter that brings each of them closer to the edge of death than ever before. In the world of the Dire Wolves, the leader of the pack is the strongest and surest of them all. But when the mission stalls out, Luc will have to use any means necessary to find the women he can’t be sure actually exist…even if that includes scaring off the one woman whose very presence quiets the storm inside him.
One soldier, one fight…one chance at forever.
A Feral Breed Motorcycle Club spin-off series featuring alpha wolf shifters fighting for their fated mates.
