Overview

From "falling in love" to "it's complicated," New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristin Miller brings you three, full-length, deliciously hot paranormal love stories with sexy alpha heroes and the strong-willed women who bring these werewolves to heel.

The Werewolf Wears Prada
Melina Rosenthal worships at the altar of all things fashion. Her dream is to work for the crème de la crème fashion magazine, Eclipse, and she'll do pretty much anything to get there. Even fixing up the image of a gorgeous, sexy public figure who's all playboy, all the time. Even if he's the guy who broke her heart a year ago. And even if Melina has no idea that Hayden Dean is actually a werewolf...

Beauty and the Werewolf
Billionaire werewolf Jack MacGrath has almost everything—the respect of his peers, a mansion in San Francisco, a private jet, and fast cars. But without a mate, Jack's in trouble. Then he sees her. Gorgeous, demure, proud...and his enemy. Isabelle Connelly is werewolf royalty and falling for anyone lesser—to say nothing of a rival pack—would be, er, unseemly. Now she must choose between her duty to her family and her pack...or her perfect fated mate.

What a Werewolf Wants
Private investigator–and werewolf–Ryder McManus doesn’t believe in marriage. But then he never expected to find his fated mate, Josie, at his best friend’s wedding festivities. When Josie and Ryder are together, the chemistry heats up. While he’s trying to stop the wedding, she’ll do whatever it takes to give the couple a dream day. But the secret he’s trying to expose might just ruin everything…

CHAPTER 1

Life is not a fairy tale.


Melina Rae Rosenthal had lived her entire life repeating that mantra to herself. She'd kissed a long list of frogs, and put up with a lot of B.S. Today, however, made her question whether she'd been wrong, and incredibly bitter, all those years. She'd been asked out by one of the most eligible bachelors on the planet.

Prince Charming had finally arrived.

There was only one thing missing: a fairy godmother who'd wave a glittery wand in front of her face and turn her yoga pants into a puffy blue dress.

"I've got nothing to wear." Melina dove into her walk-in closet, tossing leather pants and a fur poncho onto the bed behind her. "What am I going to do?"

Her best friend Colleen squealed from the bedroom, probably ducking for cover. Not very fairy-godmother-like. "Just calm down. You've been skipping around all day like Little Red Riding Hood on Redbull."

"Not Redbull. Espresso." Throwing hangers behind her, Melina huffed and shoved two coats apart. "I've had six today."

"Six?" Colleen laughed — one of those witchy cackles Melina both loved and hated her for. She really was more like the Wicked Witch of the West than any fairy godmother Melina had ever seen. "You and Hayden must've really hit it off."

Merely hearing his name made the hair on Melina's arms stand on end.

Hayden Dean.

He was a San Francisco business mogul, millionaire, and model magnet. He was also scorching hot. Dark brown hair parted perfectly down the center with silky strands that nearly brushed his ears. Creamy chocolate eyes set against golden tan skin. Thick, swooping jaw, and a set of plush lips.

Totally Prince Charming material.

Before today, she might've settled for far less. She hadn't had a date with a real man in months. The ones she'd gone out with had turned out to be mama's boys, cat-callers, loud eaters, snorters, and scratchers. And if she went out with another guy who called her "Doll" she was going to scratch out his eyeballs.

She'd started to think the good ones were either already taken or dead.

"I'm telling you, it was magic. He's not anything like you see on E! News." They'd painted the famous Hayden Dean to be a stupid playboy. A chauvinist who cared for nothing and no one but himself. To her surprise, he'd shown her none of those things. "He's unexpectedly ... charismatic. And caring."

Two hours interviewing the drop-dead gorgeous hunk, and Melina knew he was the one she'd been waiting for. The guy plucked straight from her dreams. He was tall, dark, and unquestionably handsome — more so in person, if that was possible — so staring at him while she fired questions about his personal life wasn't the worst assignment she'd ever had.

And she could go off for hours about the trashy assignments she'd had from Celebrity Crush magazine. She'd worked as the Celeb Life & Style columnist for eighteen months, and longed to move up the ranks to Eclipse, the city's leading fashion magazine.

Every article was one step closer to reaching that goal and leaving the unrealistic demands of her editor behind her.

"I'm stoked you two hit it off," Colleen said, her voice laced with concern, "but they don't call him Hook-Up Hayden for nothing."

A subtle twinge in Melina's gut warned Colleen might've had a point. All those stories about Hayden's womanizing ways couldn't have been terribly off-mark. But how could she turn down the chance to see for herself? Guys like Hayden didn't come around that often, if ever.

"I think I can take care of myself." Melina squeezed between two Gucci dresses. Exactly how deep was her closet? "If you got to know him, you'd see he's different. Deep down, I don't think he wants to be that way ... the way everyone paints him to be."

Colleen huffed. "You really think you know him? Deep down? After two hours in Starbucks?"

"Maybe, maybe not." Melina's fingers gripped silky-soft pleats. "Gotcha."

She yanked a Prada gown off its hanger and burst into the bedroom holding it high. The dress was a gorgeous shade of eggplant. Grecian. Long and draping, with pleats on the gown and a dangerously low V-neck.

"Ooh!" Colleen crooned, jumping off the bed, her platinum blonde locks bouncing over her shoulder. "It looks like the one whats-her-face wore to that huge awards show last season."

"Yes, but this one's better. The V-neck is deeper, the skirt is tamer. The differences are subtle, but it's striking, don't you think?" She stroked the pleats, seeing the image take form. "I'm going to pair it with glittering gold Manolo Blahniks, nude lips, and the most fabulous earrings I can find."

What better way to make a splash at the Silverlight Awards?

She still couldn't believe he'd asked her.

Infamous womanizer Hayden Dean had leaned across their tiny table in the back corner of Starbucks, gazed deep into her eyes, stirring something in her chest ... and whispered the words she never thought she'd hear: Be my date tonight?

Not only any date. His date to the Silverlight Awards. She'd walk the red carpet. Mingle with celebrities. Wave to the cameras. If she was lucky, she'd show up on E! News. The minute she'd returned from the interview, Melina had set her TiVo to record the event. Just in case.

"What do you think?" Melina bounced on her toes and met her friend's bright blue eyes, practicing the show-stopping smile she'd give to the paparazzi that followed Hayden around. "Am I going to rock his socks, or what?"

"Wow, Mel, I don't — I'm speechless."

"Let's hope he is, too."

"I don't understand why Hayden is going to the Silverlights in the first place," Coleen said, her gaze raking up and down the dress. "He's not in the film industry."

"No, but I guess his father is on the Board of Governors and is getting some kind of honorary award for his work." She shrugged, excitement pulsing through her. "Hayden gets two complimentary tickets."

Colleen shook her head slowly. "And he asked you to be his date ..."

Melina flinched at her friend's disbelieving tone. "Why wouldn't he?"

"I don't mean it like that." Colleen grabbed Melina by the arm and dragged her to the edge of the bed. They shoved clothes aside and plopped down, dangling their legs over the edge. "It's just that ... isn't he still dating that Sports Illustrated model? You know, the one with the rack?"

"I've got a nice rack." Frowning, Melina grabbed handfuls of her B cups and held tight. "Okay, okay, so they're not as big as the other girls he's dated, but at least they're real! Doesn't that count for something?"

"I don't know." Colleen shrugged. "I'm more of a leg girl."

Melina snorted into a belly laugh. "I don't think the size of my boobs matters anyway. He totally thinks I'm hot as-is."

"Really?" Colleen beamed, snatching Melina's hands off her boobs. "He told you that?"

"He didn't say the words, but one glance and I could feel the chemistry. It was like — "How could she possibly explain their connection? It was crackly. Sparkly. Fizzling the air between them." — Snap, Crackle, Pop."

Colleen's smile fell, and she cocked a thinly-plucked eyebrow. "You're talking about the cereal? Sweetheart, I think we need to get you out more often. You shouldn't feel anything close to cereal when you're with a guy like Hayden Dean. You should melt. Like butter."

"Oh, there was definite melting going on."

If Hayden had been any hotter, he would've melted the panties right off her body.

"All right." Colleen nodded. "You better get your petite ass moving. He'll be here in twenty, right?"

Melina gasped, shooting a glance at the clock on her bedside table.

Six o'clock.

"It can't be that late already!"

She swept off the bed in a whirlwind, dug around in her drawer for a pair of Spanx, and dashed into the bathroom. Squeezing into the bodysuit, she leaned and tugged as the stretchy material inched up her body. With a groan, she wiggled into the stunning Prada dress. Colleen zipped up the back, oohing and aahing as Melina spun, excitement spearing through her. For the next fifteen minutes, she applied her makeup. Dried her hair. Straightened and smoothed down the fly-aways. If she hadn't drained her bank account to buy this dress last week, she might've had the money to pay for a stylist. But things were tight.

As soon as she landed a job at Eclipse, she'd be fine.

Six-thirty came and went.

Glad to have a few extra minutes, Melina wiggled her size eights into her sky-high shoes and had Colleen strap them. She tweaked her hair. Reapplied her lipstick. Chose a pair of long silver earrings with chunky beads hanging off them. They were high fashion, bordering on gaudy, and they were perfect.

She checked the time on her cell, and just in case, scanned the log for missed calls. There weren't any.

Nerves settled in, though there was really no room for them in her dress.

"I'm sure he's having trouble parking," Colleen said. But her voice didn't sound so confident.

"Yeah." Her lips twitched. "Parking's hellacious around here."

Melina shrugged off the doubt. As her toes protested the squeeze she'd put them under, she lowered herself onto the bed — keeping her posture straight so the dress didn't crinkle — and then flicked on the flat-screen mounted to the wall.

"Look." Using the remote as a pointer, Melina poked it in the direction of the television. E! News flashed over the screen. "People are already showing up."

"I think they show up early and circle the block over and over again, waiting for the perfect moment to stop." Colleen sat beside her, crossing her leather-clad legs at the ankle. She was long and lanky — probably six inches taller than Melina, who stood at five-foot-two on tiptoe — and hung her feet over the end of the bed. "I'm sure some like to be there first thing, and others like to make an entrance. From what I've heard, Hayden likes to have all eyes on him. I'm sure he won't mind being late."

It must've been Colleen's mention of Hayden that made Melina see him emerge from a limo parked at the curb. The camera angle was distant and from the side, so she couldn't be sure, but this man was the same height and general size, with the same complexion. He turned before she could get a good look at his face. He extended his hand for two blonde bombshells to exit the limousine behind him.

That couldn't be right.

Blinking quickly to clear her head, Melina leaned forward as worry hardened into a ball in the pit of her stomach.

"Mel," Colleen whispered, "is that ..."

"I don't think so."

Colleen had either read her mind, or Hayden Dean was there with someone else. Two, to be exact. As the camera angle zoomed on Hayden's look-a-like, Melina's heart dropped to her Blahniks.

Hayden grinned and held up the hands of his escorts as they spun for the cameras, their green silky gowns hiding little of their curvy figures.

It was Hayden Dean. Playboy. Casanova. Pompous ass.

"Oh my God, Mel." Colleen grasped her shoulders. "What a jerkhole!"

Melina nodded as tears pinched her eyes. She wasn't crying for him. She wasn't. She couldn't be. She'd just been so freaking excited to be going to the Silverlight Awards. That had to be it. She'd spent all day building up tonight's experience. She'd planned it all out in her head. Of course she'd feel deflated when the fantasy didn't match the reality.

Cinderella wasn't going to the ball after all.

Desperate to get a closer glimpse of the television and Hayden's smug face, Melina crawled over the bed on her hands and knees. When she reached the end, the breath whooshed out of her lungs.

"Are you okay?" She heard Colleen say. "Mel?"

"I'm fine."

Oh, she was far from the bland emotion. She wanted to rip out Hayden's tongue and shove it where the sun didn't shine. The man was a snake in — oh God, was that Prada? They would've matched. They could've been the perfect pair.

"I should've known better," Melina mumbled. "I should've listened to my gut. Somewhere deep inside I think I knew all those magazines couldn't be wrong." She shook her head. "I gave Hayden Dean the benefit of the doubt, and two hours of my day. Those are two things he didn't deserve. I won't spend another second thinking about him."

"Good for you."

Melina sighed. "I guess I just hoped — I just thought maybe for once, the fairy tale could actually come true for me, you know?"

As her legs cramped, she sat back. The ear-piercing sound of fabric ripping hit her ears. She stilled, slowly glancing down. She brushed her fingers over a rip in the Prada dress she'd spent her entire month's earnings on.

Tears burning her throat, Melina glared at Hayden's face on the television screen and realized two things.

By ripping her Prada dress, she'd just committed a fashion sin.

And fairy tales were most definitely real. They were. Maybe not for her, but for the girls on Hayden's arms. They radiated happiness, their wide, innocent eyes taking in the fanciful scene around them. They smiled as she would've been smiling. If those blondes could live in a dream, she could too. She had control over her life, including who came in and out of it.

She should be blissfully happy too.

Why'd she have to wait for some dashing knight in shining armor to come riding in on a white horse and sweep her off her feet?

She vowed, then and there, in her torn Prada dress, that she'd make her fairy tale come true ... without an arrogant Prince Charming like Hayden Dean on her arm, acting as if he was the one responsible for it all.

CHAPTER 2

Almost one year later ...

Two thunderous bangs on the bedroom door jerked Hayden upright. Blankets and pillows slid off the edge of the bed in a waterfall of down.

He peeked through impossibly heavy lids, using his heightened werewolf senses to scan the dark. The curtains were still drawn tight.

It didn't matter who was at the door.

He'd had a rough night filled with too many Crown and Cokes. He pinched his eyes tight, the strobes from the nightclub a familiar blinding pulse against the back of his eyelids.

"Go away!" Hayden fell back onto the mound of pillows, twisted onto his stomach, and buried his head under the thickest one. "Come back in two hours."

Bang! Bang! Bang!

"I said go away."

A key shifted in the lock.

"Get the" — He scrambled to pull the sheet over his naked body — "hell out of here!"

Two-hundred-and-sixty pounds of pissed-off werewolf barged into the room, swinging the door open wide. Once his lap was covered, Hayden exhaled heavily and leaned back against the headboard.

It was only Gabriel Park. Packmate, Hayden's assigned secondary, and most trusted friend. He'd bailed Hayden out of so many sticky situations, the guy deserved a medal.

"I appreciate the personal wake-up call." Hayden stretched. "But you could've used the phone and avoided the peep show."

"Your phone's off and downstairs security had a do-not-disturb order until noon." Gabriel marched for the windows on the far side of the room. Seemed his jaw was set on a permanent clench setting. "She's fired up and out for blood."

She could only be the infamous Lydia Hyde, packmate and co-founder of Dean, Hyde, & Hammer, and managing editor of Eclipse magazine. She was six-hundred years old — four-hundred years older "and wiser" than Hayden — and she never let him forget it. Alongside Angus Dean, Hayden's father and the San Francisco Wolf Pack's Alpha, she'd built Dean, Hyde, & Hammer into one of the country's most prominent law firms. She ruled the branches of the wolf pack's companies with an iron fist, and since Hayden's father passed last year, she'd taken it upon herself to make him feel like shit for what he didn't do.

It was the same script, set on repeat: he wasn't good enough to run the firm or rule the pack. According to Lydia, he never would be.

He was the son of the Alpha, true. But he was adopted. A turned wolf accepted into a born wolf's home.

It was blasphemy to some. To him, the pack was the only home he'd ever known.

"She's always out for blood. What's new?" Hayden tunneled his fingers through his hair, the long waves tangling in his grasp. "Is that seriously the reason you busted in here?"

Gabriel jerked open the curtains, blinding Hayden with harsh rays of daylight. He picked up a pair of jeans Hayden had strewn on the floor and chucked them at him. "What happened to you this morning?" Gabriel fired.

Hayden tossed the jeans aside and scrubbed his hand over his face. "You banged on my door. I rolled out of bed."

"It's ten o'clock, Sleeping Beauty. You missed the banquet this morning."

A mix of doubt and panic streaked through him.

"Hell, you say." Leaning over the bed, Hayden snatched his cell off the bedside table. He waited for it to turn on and then flicked his thumb over the screen. "Fuck me."

Ten-oh-three.
