Follow his head, he breaks her heart. Follow his heart… he breaks his pack.
From the moment he was born, Nic Kagan’s future was sealed. He’ll accept a mate, have kids, and eventually take over his father’s role as pack alpha. There’s just one problem.
Long ago, his heart settled on Riley, the pack’s human doctor and honorary member. Except only half of him can have her. The other half—his wolf—won’t give a weak non-shifter female a second sniff.
No one—human or shifter—has left a mark on Riley’s soul like Nic. But with his father hospitalized, any hope things could work out between them is slipping away. Yet Riley understands something else about pack life. Power isn’t always a physical gift; love is just as strong. What she and Nic have is worth fighting for.
With rival threats mounting, Nic realizes he can’t simply turn his back on Riley. Though his wolf could tear his heart out for it, he must fight for what he wants before he loses his mate. His pack. Maybe even his sanity.
Warning: Contains a reluctant alpha with only one roadblock between his heart and the woman he loves—biology. And a woman who isn’t giving up on him, even if it means risking her life to fool Mother Nature.
This is the first book in the Kagan Wolves series and ends in an HEA.
>Riley is a human doctor who works for all the wolf shifter packs. She understands their metabolism and trained especially to heal them. She is one of a few humans who realize shifters exist. Nic is the Kagan pack heir and he makes the mistake of falling in love with Riley. He can never mate with her as he needs an heir and human/shifter markings are sterile. After staying away from his pack and Riley for 4 years, he is back and wants her more than ever.
>Of course, the alpha tendencies in Nic are fun to read about. He’s already mated Riley, without even knowing it. He is very protective of her. The romance is hot, but heartbreaking, as you can see the predicament Nic is in. The scientist in Riley comes up with a solution, but it is unclear in the Epilogue whether the idea is used or if nature beat the odds. If the latter, a scene where Riley and Nic find out the big news would have been EPIC!
