Co-written with Mary Calmes

Vy Aleknos is the leader of a hawk shifter flock. Openly gay since he was a teen, Vy is proud and self-assured on the outside, while secretly worrying he'll be forced to spend his life alone because two males can't be mates. When bear shifter Robert Cimino appears in Vy's small town, Vy realizes his concerns were unfounded - he has a male mate, and a sexy, dominant one to boot.

Robert is a bear shifter who refuses to shift. Immediately attracted to Vy, he deviates from his normal pattern and seeks more than a one off with the powerful, bristly hawk. But Robert's affections are rooted in his human form, and when Vy discovers Robert doesn't recognize him as his mate, he pulls away. If Robert wants to stay with Vy, he must convince a man deeply ruled by his animal instincts to give their relationship as humans a chance.

Vy

MRS. CHOI didn't bother looking up when I walked in the store again, even though the bells over the door jangled like mad. The shopkeeper, who had gone to school with my father, was purposely ignoring me. I couldn't very well blame her. I had been in and out a total of six times in the last seven, maybe nine, minutes.

Crap.

Walking right by her, I strode quickly to the back of the store, which I had been in more than a thousand times in my life. It was the local hardware store, and being in construction - demolition - it was a place I frequented often. So it was crazy that I had flushed hot and cold within seconds and then had to grit my teeth through a surge of adrenaline only to feel an absolute sense of peace roll through...

Reviews

Beans: The fight between these two makes for an incredibly enjoyable read. I love how Vy is fighting for his mate but also struggles with his desires. Robert and his fear of letting his bear control him, but Vy is pushing all his buttons, his...

Gay List Book Reviews

A very unusual pairing in the shifter genre and I soon learned that the two authors happily left behind any shifter cliche I could think of :) The hawk alpha may be strong, but he's also small like avian shifters in this book tend to be. He is...
