Susie White wants no picket fences, no alpha, and no cubs. White wolf woman she may be, but no pack for her, no sireee. Alpha Me Not, that's her motto. In all caps.
Mercenary and half-breed wolf Joe Huroq's not looking for a mate. Stop and go screwing, that's his motto. Hot and heavy between missions. Then he glimpses his new neighbor tanning nude and the situation explodes.
Literally. Susie's house is consumed by fire due to a faulty propane tank.
What's Joe to do but offer Susie his hospitality?
Susie can't resist the temptation of big, bad, mercenary, so she suggests a friends with benefits arrangement which he accepts with an amazing alacrity. The sex is frantic, hot, and frequent. Neither one can keep their hands off the other.
Then children go missing. The fire's deemed arson. Bodies pile up.
Susie refuses to accept Joe's mate claim.
How can he keep her safe when she won't obey a single order?
