Since moving to Boston, Kyle Slidell has met only a few of his neighbors, including Tobias Rogan. Kyle is very interested in Tobias, and is ecstatic to learn Tobias wants him too.
But his neighbors have a secret: They’re werewolves, and Tobias is the pack Alpha. When one of the wolves attacks Kyle, Kyle learns the truth in a hurry. Now he’s a werewolf too – and since he’s vegan, he refuses to eat meat. With Tobias’s help and love, Kyle must adjust to his new life and protect himself and his new pack.
Step into a universe where humans, werewolves, vampires, sorcerers, psychics, and others all 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 and cooperate with the country’s largest pack, City, which occupies the rest of Boston and the surrounding area. Meanwhile, a 600+-year-old ninja-turned-vampire runs a dojo near Boston University and tries to stay off the radar of the local vampire clan, while a motivational speaker based just east of Boston uses sorcery fueled by slivers of people’s souls to do his work. 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.

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…)
