Two Alpha shifters join together to lead their pack and build a family.
Commitment, loyalty, and strength aren’t enough to make Wesley Stone’s birth pack accept an Alpha with a physical imperfection, even if it’s a meaningless mark. Putting the safety of his pack above his own wellbeing, Wesley trades himself for another Alpha and agrees to mate with a stranger in a mysterious, insular pack.
Alphas from Jobe Root’s family have led the Red River pack from the first day shifters walked the earth. Now the time has come for Jobe to fulfill his destiny, but to do that, he needs his mate by his side. Spiritual, easygoing Jobe reveres Mother Nature and trusts in fate, yet he can’t help being nervous about how his mate will react to his new life in Red River, his new life with Jobe.
Two Alphas with contrasting personalities, different upbringings, and divergent beliefs come together for the good of their packs. But to stay together, Wesley and Jobe must see beyond the surface and embrace every facet of themselves and their union.

Man, I’ve been craving a good old-fashioned shifter romance for a while now. And what I mean by old-fashioned?
• Some world-building –don’t get hung up on how solid it is people, they’re shifters!
• The whole “fate brought us together, destined to be mates” hoopla
• Speaking of mates…HELLO! MATING! Smex with alpha males! Please sir, can I have some more…?
• *clears throat* -mpreg. The holy fucking grail of shifter romance! Delivered by the master of
fluff, Cardeno C. Yes yes yes! I’m not high, I swear. Just excited.
• Short –relatively, and to the point. No mystery attacks from neighbouring packs and mysteries to solve. Who
needs that shit? We have here folks, a story about two hawtest of the hawt alpha wolves making sweet lurve.
What you want more? Pick up this book. It will transport you to the amazing la la la la la fairy tale land that is the shifter romance world Cardeno built. It’s like fanfic with all the secretly mushy unbelievable shit that you want to gobble up, only better! The editing could use slightly more attention but nothing too major.
Enjoy the crack people! Recommended!
