Fantastic start to a new series featuring wolf shifters. The characters are well-developed and run the gambit of emotions in this tale filled with both action and romance. Raymand is the Alpha of the pack and knows that sometimes that means he's got to be tough and gruff. When Cora's parents are killed by hunters she ends up living with the alpha. Maple is looking for a fresh start and quickly finds herself right in the middle of the action. She has an immediate love for Cora and a fierce protectiveness and determination to do whatever is necessary to keep her safe. I loved the friction between Maple and Raymand as their alpha-ness clashes. Raymand may be the Bad Alpha Dad, but watch out for the momma wolf when you mess with her cub!

Awesome story This is a great and entertaining shifter story to read. You got a hot Alpha male and a new female in town that turns out to be the Alphas mate. Now if they can find the time to complete the mating before the three-day deadline or loss their wolves. But there is the young girl that had lost her parents to the hunters and is staying with the Alpha. And she is a mating block for the Alpha. Hunters are still a problem as well. This is a Self-contained story that’s very entertaining to read. I highly recommend this book.

Maple’s Strong Alpha is suspenseful, steamy and a hole can of awesome mixed into one novella size book. I haven’t gotten this deep into a book in a long time and I couldn’t put it down. Each character had their own realm of stubborn mixed with wolf hormones going crazy. There were times I wanted to laugh at characteristics the wolves showcased. But, the hardest part was waiting for the climax of the book. I won’t reveal any spoilers. After reading this book I was hooked. I already purchased book 2 and read it in one sitting. Now I am waiting on book 3. This is by far my favorite read of 2018 and highly recommend everyone to snatch this one up. McKayla already has wolves prancing around in my head making me want to write my own stories.

Maple inherited her aunt;s bookstore in Denver. Unfortunately the lease has a bad clause in it and the owner is doing his best to be unhelpful. Maple heads to the lawyer;s office and while waiting to see the lawyer she meets Cora, the small pup whose parents were killed the night before. Hunters are targeting the wolf community and kidnapping the children.Maple is very sympathetic to Cora and when putting the Alpha, Raymond, in his place about his care of Cora she;s invited to dinner. While there, Maple and Raymond imprint. Things get rather dicey for the alpha and Maple to cement their bonding. On top of that the hunters get more daring. Then Cora is finally taken. Fantastic story and read. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

At 2 a.m., Raymand was awakened by Drake, his second in command, delivering a 7-year-old girl whose parents had been killed deliberately by hunters. This was not the first such situation, but usually after the parents were killed, the child disappeared. This time, Cora had been playing in her treehouse and her mom had told her to run to Drake or the alpha’s house if the killers ever came. She had no information for them, but Raymand knew he needed to find her a family to care for her while he tried to track down the killers. Drake, their pack lawyer, was meeting with Maple today. Her aunt had willed her a bookstore and Maple was having issues with the strip mall lease owner who didn’t want to sign with a werewolf. Maple got out of her truck and scented an alpha, which caused her to panic. She was not properly dressed for meeting her new alpha and hoped he was not with her lawyer. But, or course, he was. Maple first met Cora in the waiting room. She sensed her sadness and comforted the little girl. When the alpha walked out, Maple looked him directly in the eyes – a challenge which one did not issue with an alpha. Cora wanted to stay with Maple and Maple thought it would help the child. Raymand’s wolf was acting crazy and Raymand’s human side was upset at the direct stare. But with Cora begging to stay with Maple, he gave in but insisted they be at his place by 5:00 for dinner. He kept telling his wolf that maybe she wasn’t his mate, but the wolf joyfully wouldn’t listen. Cora and Maple worked at cleaning up the book store, but as they were leaving, a man approached. Maple put Cora in the truck and locked it, then faced down the man. He smelled of silver and tried to intimidate her, but she wouldn’t back down. Then they drove to the alpha’s house for dinner. As Maple turned to get a vegetable from the kitchen, she walked right into the alpha’s chest. The electric tingle they both felt left no doubt – they were mates! Now they had 3 days to complete the bond. Maple took a list Cora had made of things she needed from her old room -- a special blanket, toys, clothes, and such. As Maple was leaving, the same guy from her book store walked in holding a silver knife and demanded to know where Cora was. He climbed the stairs toward her and she punched him, causing him to fall down the stairs and land on his own knife. She quickly returned to Raymand to tell him what happened. Why were they still after Cora? Who were these people? And what would the future be like now for Cora and Maple? This was a good book, filled with a bit of mystery to keep things interesting. The characters were so much fun to get to know! Maple is feisty and tough, with a ton of love and compassion inside of her. Raymand is the typical alpha who has more than likely met his match in his intended mate! Cora is a sweetheart, spoiled but a good pup and easy to like. Even the secondary characters were well developed. And the story line was well-paced to lead the reader to a resolution of why the hunters are killing and kidnapping children. Grab a copy and find out what’s going on and what happens with Raymand, Maple, and Cora as they try to deal with the changes coming in their lives!

Maple is a pretty alpha female. Raymand is his pack’s alpha. I’m hoping this is the first in a series about the Denver pack. There were many unanswered questions about the hunters. I did enjoy this book very much and am looking forward to reading more from Ms. Schutt. I received a free copy of this book and I am voluntarily leaving a review.
