He said, "Come on. Move in with the pack. It'll all be perfect."
I said, "No. They're still healing. I'm a fox shifter, the reason they fell apart in the first place. I won't mess this up for you."
Yeah, so...I moved in anyway. And, sure enough, clan bonds started breaking, fights erupted, Gunner's entire role as pack leader was cast into doubt.
Now I'm struggling to posture like a wolf while protecting the stray kitsune who showed up on our doorstep. Gunner's stuck choosing between our relationship and his role as pack leader. And I've only got one thing left to say about the matter:
"I told you so."
This final installment in the Moon Marked trilogy follows Wolf's Bane and Shadow Wolf.

Half-werewolf Athena has spent her entire adult life keeping her human sister off the local alpha's radar. But when the Samhain Shifters come to town, she's thrown off her game.
Tank isn't at all what Athena had come to expect from an alpha. Rather than throwing his weight around and taking from the little guys, he risks his skin to fight off deadly fae who slip into our world one night per year.
"Join us," Tank tempts, prompting butterflies to take flight in Athena's stomach. The gig would be a one-week commitment, the work a boon to the common good, the result insurance for her sister's future. But if Athena drops her standards and runs with wolves, will she ever be able to attain independence again?
Wolfie Young is a bloodling, a rare shifter born in wolf rather than in human form. Although he has trouble handling simple human interactions, the alpha soon finds his niche as the benevolent dictator of a pack of outcasts and misfits.
But while struggling to grow into his responsibilities, Wolfie falls into Crazy Wilder's trap. The grizzled old shifter's dominance ranks him above all other werewolves in the region, and Wilder shores up that position by tricking up-and-coming young alphas into promising undesignated future favors.
Wolfie flounders as he attempts to wriggle out from beneath Crazy Wilder's thumb without harming his clan. But he's soon left wondering --- does he really want to sever all ties after meeting a pack princess who turns out to be his opponent's enticing daughter?
This bundle contains the complete novel-length serial, including Bloodling Wolf, In Deep Shift, Two Scents' Worth, Feint of Heart, and Hair Apparent.
