Harlequin Nocturnes :
The paranormal romance UNTAMED WOLF was released in May and continues the stories of a covert military team of shapeshifters. Military sergeant Jason Connell’s freedom is riding on a covert assignment. His sexy new superior, Lieutenant Sara McLinder, tests his desires, even if she doesn’t believe in his extraordinary abilities. Once the threat against Alpha Force turns explosive, his instinct to protect the seductive Sara eclipses everything.
The latest of my Alpha Force series, LOYAL WOLF was just released on August 1. When fearless deputy sheriff Kathlene Baylor detects suspicious behavior on the outskirts of her Montana town, she’s first to investigate. She calls in the military when her own department refuses to take the anarchist threat seriously. But she doesn’t realize the task force assigned to her is no ordinary team—or that with it will come shapeshifter Jock Larabey, the sexiest man she’s ever seen. As the danger escalates, so does their desire.
By the way, both Nocturnes are also available in 2-in-1 volumes, each containing another full-length paranormal romance by another author:
UNTAMED WOLF is paired with IMMORTAL COWBOY by Alexis Morgan
LOYAL WOLF is paired with IMMORTAL OBSESSION by Linda Thomas-Sundstrom.
