Two white wolf shifters—a reclusive author and a dogged PI—find each other (and love) over the winter holiday season.
Two years ago, Clara Hart was bitten by a white wolf pup while camping in Minnesota with her friends. The pup wasn’t an ordinary wolf but a shifter, and its bite changed Clara’s life forever. Before the incident, she made a living as a romantic suspense author and enjoyed time with her adoptive parents. Now, with her body shifting into her wolf form during full moons, she’s become a recluse, moving to the wilderness of South Dakota and changing her name to Candice Mayfair. She doesn’t trust herself around friends and family, choosing instead to live a life of solitude. Fellow white wolf shifter and Minnesota PI Owen Nottingham is excited to finally open a brick-and-mortar store for his agency. His first case: find Clara Hart within 30 days or the inheritance her adoptive father left her becomes forfeit. Clara’s family has been disturbed by her sudden disappearance and figures it may have something to do with her previous camping trip in Owen’s neck of the woods. Obviously, Owen manages to track down Clara and is surprised to learn that she’s a shifter of his own kind, though she’s had the unfortunate luck of trying to figure out the whole shifting process on her own. Owen is overjoyed at the prospect of finding a mate given that his shifting species is rather rare, and he takes the opportunity to show her the ropes of a shifter lifestyle. While the timeline of events, past and present, is confusing to put together, the backdrop of a snowy cabin in the wilderness with Christmas fast approaching is a cozy distraction from any outlying, head-scratching details.
A cute shifter romance with plenty of holiday spirit.
