By the winter of 1870, Caleb Fletcher has carved out a sheltered existence for himself in a simple cabin, outside a small town in the backwaters of Nebraska, resigned to living out his days as a solitary wolf. But his quiet life is interrupted when another werewolf lands on his doorstep on the eve of a snowstorm, brutalized almost beyond repair, with nowhere else to turn.
When Caleb reluctantly welcomes Jacob into his cabin, and eventually his bed, it forces him to face up to the traumas he’s been running from; the shame that made him leave his pack behind, and the horrors of war he endured.
As the weeks pass, it seems that Jacob’s arrival might not be the coincidence it first appeared. Jacob has an agenda. One that involves Caleb. And if Caleb agrees to it – if he can let go of his past and his prejudices – it will change Caleb’s whole world. Maybe even for the better.
Without a mate – a family, a pack – a wolf has no home.
But what if home finds you?
The Alphas' Homestead series – Book One
So every so often I find a book that I really want to recommend to everyone. This is that book for me at the moment. A shifter book, but not, and you'll see what I mean when you read it. There are very few cliches in this book, more a whole new look at the shifter trope. Add in the alphas, and a suspicious town, and heroes… oh and children… my heart…
Give this book a try, a new author, and a gorgeous world Alex has created.
