Pack and Coven by Jody Wallace
Happy release week to my pal and crit partner Jody Wallace! Her Carina Press novel Pack and Coven is out right now!
Harry Smith is a lone wolf, and he likes it that way. When he's targeted to be co-alpha of the local pack, there is only one thing he can do to maintain his freedom: flee. But it'll take a miracle to stay a step ahead of shifters in their own territory.
June Travis has been in love with Harry for years, but he doesn't know her real identity. He sees her as the sweet owner of the local tearoom—the facade June presents to humans and werewolves to keep them from finding out she's a witch. She may not be able to offer Harry a miracle, but she can help him escape.
Harry is drawn to this new side of June, and not just because he's grateful for her help. With her magic temporarily hiding Harry from his pursuers, the witch and the wolf explore their mutual attraction. But there are consequences for witches who bed down with wolves...
Harry is not your typical alpha male shape shifter. He just wants to be left alone to do his thing. This doesn't mean he's a beta, not by any means. He is the definition of "lone wolf" who reluctantly accepts June's help. Despite her genteel manners, June is a strong heroine who shouldn't be underestimated. Both are refreshing characters in a genre where alpha-asshats and TSTL or uber bitches seem to dominate. Kudos to Jody for that and for creating a fully-realized paranormal world.
Oh! And Jody is having a contest! Go comment and win something yummy : )
