When her search lands her outside Maria, New Mexico, a surly ranch hand pegs her as an annoying stray dog. Desperate to keep his new job, cowboy Austin Stuart plans to get rid of the distraction. Yet, according to his little brother, the dog is really a human, and she’s on the run. Could this get more ridiculous? But he soon finds out shapeshifters are very real…and all signs point to Austin being Sheena’s mate.
After a lifetime spent recovering from one embarrassing social gaffe after another, Austin is open to trading his solitude for a chance at having a partner who’s kind about his rough edges—and no one’s sweeter than Sheena. Unfortunately, Sheena is still under her abusive father’s thumb, and she knows he’s waiting for her back in Sacramento.
It’s up to Austin to convince her that the bravest thing she can do is stay in Maria—not only for him, but so she can incite lasting change in Coyote culture as well.

Ménage à Troys (MMF)
Eve Troy wants to spark passion in her cold marriage of convenience, and hopes a visit to the Hotel Beaudelaire's Den of Sin event will be the ignition she and her husband Brent need. Unfortunately, they arrive to find their room is already occupied…and by a man who knows Eve’s marriage is a sham. Remy Kelly is intent on claiming her for himself, but when faced with Eve’s strapping new husband who comes onto Remy’s radar as exactly the kind of alpha male he likes, he has a battle of conscience. He wants to take Eve home—not Brent—but for some reason, the Troys seem like a package deal.
O for Two (MMF)
Clint Morstad and Ken Brook have been in a committed relationship for eleven years and are a perfect match. However, after a decade together, both admit their relationship needs a feminine influence. They visit The Den to search for their perfect woman, and believe easygoing flight attendant Olivia Patterson could be their ideal match. As much as she adores them, she doesn’t want to get attached to men she can’t keep. When she slips away before they can invite her home, Clint and Ken left with a dilemma. Should they give chase to the only woman they’ve wanted to share, or let her fly?
When teammates Barton Lock and Evan Boswell arrive separately at the Hotel Beaudelaire’s exclusive Den of Sin Winterball, neither expects the staff matchmaker to pair them with the other. Evan’s used to Bart calling the shots on the field, and wouldn’t mind so much if Bart did the same in his personal life, too. Unfortunately, Bart thinks Evan’s attempted seduction has more to do with changing his mind about retiring from their sport than hitting a relationship home run.
Shame and a Disgrace (MM)
Phil Oxendine knew hooking up with cowboy Landon Lundstrom would be a mistake from the very beginning, and a few years into their relationship, he's finally committed to setting the younger man free so Landon can experience life...and heartbreak. The problem is, Landon's not willing to go. He may only be twenty-three, but he knows what he wants and is mature enough to demand it. At The Den, he hopes to make Phil understand that age is just a number, and while he's at it, satisfy some long-ignored cravings as well.
