The night before Kyle Slidell and his mate Tobias Rogan are scheduled to travel to Pennsylvania for the regional gathering of Alphas, a member of Boston North Pack is assaulted by humans who claim they were hired by a shifter. The same night, Melia, the wolf who changed Kyle, returns to Boston. The pack suspects Melia of arranging the attack, but Kyle believes someone else is behind it. He just doesn’t know who.
The following day, when Kyle and Tobias arrive at the gathering, Kyle finds his answer. Saul Hughes, another Alpha, holds a long-standing grudge against Tobias, claiming that Tobias is too weak to rule a pack. Especially now that Tobias has a male mate. Saul makes it clear that he wants control of Boston North, but no one suspects how far he’ll go to get it–until tragedy strikes.
Step into a universe where werewolves, humans, psychics, and sorcerers coexist
In an alternate-world Boston, Massachusetts, the country’s smallest werewolf pack, Boston North, lives in a cluster of apartment buildings on the East Boston waterfront. Its members cooperate with the country’s largest pack, City, which occupies the rest of Boston and the surrounding area. Meanwhile, a motivational speaker based just east of Boston uses sorcery fueled by slivers of people’s souls to do his work, a psychic child and his father hide from those wanting to use the boy’s abilities for their own gain, and a psychic man immune to all forms of magic fights to protect himself and those he cares for. And that’s just the beginning…
In Karenna Colcroft’s books, love is love, regardless of gender or orientation–or what type of being you are–and people find their happy ending whether they believe they deserve it or not. No matter how uncommon your heart, you deserve to find someone–or someones–who love you.
What will you find?

About the Author
A writer since childhood, Karenna Colcroft delved into the world of romantic fiction in 2009 and brought numerous novels, novellas, and short stories into the world until 2016, when various circumstances combined to enforce a hiatus. Now Karenna is resurrecting herself and some of her previously-published books along with new books set in the same universe.
Karenna lives just north of Boston and has been in love with the city since childhood, though she has yet to encounter any werewolves, vampires, or other paranormal beings in her travels. (At least none that she knows of.) Though since in her non-writing life, under another name, she offers services as a channel and energy healing practitioner, it could be said that she herself is a paranormal being. The jury’s still out on that.
Karenna is a polyamorous, nonbinary human who splits time between the home she shares with her husband and the one she shares with her committed partner. She also has two adult children and a bonus son, three grandchildren, and two and a half cats. (Half in terms of time the cat lives with her, not in terms of the cat itself…)
