Hunter Green attracts territorial shifters like moths to a porch light. Sick of beating up on pups who don't have the sense to back down from a challenge, the alpha finds peace as a warrior in the human-only military.
Unfortunately, his strong inner wolf isn't content defusing bombs and battling sharks. Instead, the beast emerges, nearly tearing the limbs off a poaching shifter before setting its sights on Hunter's human dive mate.
No longer able to trust his animal half among defenseless humans, the outcast alpha struggles to reenter shifter society. But will his tenuous grasp on werewolf politics be enough to stand up against backstabbing pack leaders intent upon expunging Hunter's last shred of humanity?
This 40,000 word novella is a prequel to USA Today bestselling author Aimee Easterling's "tense, dramatic, sexy, and intriguing" Alpha Underground series.
