Wolf’s Midlife Baby

Falling for a wolf on a business trip was the last thing I expected—
Other than getting pregnant at 43.

I flew to Eugene for a dreaded team-building event,
Kicking off with a tubing trip down the Willamette.
Wearing a swimsuit in front of my coworkers was bad enough,
But it turned into a disaster when I nearly drowned.
A hunky firefighter dove in and saved me,
But I didn’t need mouth-to-mouth to know Pierce was my mate.
He asked to show me around town,
Taking me to a shifter rock club run by his wolf pack—
Before showing me his bed later that night.
I’m only in town for a week,
And as a she-bear from Massachusetts and a wolf from Oregon,
We couldn’t be further apart.
It’s a complicated mess, but it doesn’t end there.
Turns out someone from work caught on to our shifter secret
And he’ll stop at nothing to make us the story of the century.
Pierce and his pack step in to help me,
But Pierce doesn’t know I’ve got a secret of my own—
His baby growing in my belly.

Firefighter Midlife Wolf

A midlife career switch just ignited a new chapter—
With a single dad wolf as hot as the flames he fights.

After my divorce, working in the same ER as my arrogant ex was off the table, so I decided to try visiting nursing instead.

When I accidentally set off the smoke alarm at a patient’s home and the fire department showed up, my first day was proving to be a hot mess—

But not as hot as the firefighter at the door.

My inner wolf didn’t want Hayden to leave, not knowing I’d soon meet him again—in his own home.

I was assigned to care for his teen son after a car accident, and as a single dad, he needed all the help he could get.

The spark between our wolves blazed into an inferno, but as his son’s nurse and a newly single mom, it seemed the timing was all wrong for us.

When another patient’s situation becomes dire, Hayden and I are forced right into the middle of danger, soon learning her family isn’t what it seems.

Last time I checked, fighting otherworldly beings wasn’t in my job description.

Hayden wants to protect me at all costs, but will our wolves have a fighting chance?

Vigilante Midlife Wolf

As a 47-year-old veterinarian, I thought I’d seen it all when it came to animals.
Until an injured wolf shifted into my high school sweetheart.

An ordinary hike became a rescue mission
When a wolf lay in my path, barely clinging to life.
I rushed him to my clinic and hoped for a miracle,
But I hadn’t meant it literally.
The wolf transformed into a man,
But not just any man—
Bennett Westbrook, my high school ex,
Now standing before me with a world of secrets.
I wondered if I'd gone mad,
But madness turned into reality
As Bennett revealed the world of shifters—
A world he's always been a part of.
Turns out he’s not just a wolf,
But a vigilante with a vendetta to settle.
And now that his enemies followed me to the clinic,
Bennett’s not the only one with a target on his back.
The danger lurking in the shadows brings us closer,
And I find myself rediscovering the boy I once loved,
Now a man with strength and mystery drawing me in all over again.
This wasn't how I pictured finding love at 47,
But Bennett’s more than just an old flame.
He’s my second chance at love, adventure, and a life I never imagined—
If only we can survive.

Feral Midlife Wolf

At 45, I finally found my fated mate.
Too bad he’s a feral wolf.

After years of being alone on New Year’s Eve,
I finally had someone to kiss.
My new BF took me to a party at a packhouse in the Cascades,
Right before the biggest snowstorm hit in decades.
Being snowed in up in the mountains sounded romantic—
Until I caught him with another woman at midnight.
In a blizzard of my own fury,
I grabbed the keys to his sports car and took off.
But my wintery escape only got me so far,
Because I slid off the road, crashed, and blacked out.
I came to in a rugged stranger’s cabin,
But it turns out he’s not such a stranger to my wolf.
I was rescued by my fated mate,
And with all this snow, I can’t leave anytime soon.
Looks like fate finally decided to give me a break—
Until I learn Carter’s more than just a hot mountain man.
And if I don’t get out of here soon,
His feral wolf might make sure I never do.

Then fate decided to mate me with a rock star, just in time for Christmas.
Welcome to my midlife crisis, holiday edition.

Here I am, guardian of my twin grandpups and café owner,
Thinking my biggest dilemma was choosing my next muffin flavor.

Enter Declan Ridgefield, 45-year-old frontman of the band Wildwood,
And every woman’s fantasy come to life.

Until I was falling, right there for everyone to see.
I wanted to crawl under a rock,
But Declan pulled me up on stage,
And the moment we touched,
My wolf knew she’d finally found The One.
But a rock star?
Declan's life is sold-out shows and screaming fans.
Mine’s sold-out avocado toast and screaming kids.
Then there's his ex-bandmate with revenge on his mind,
Threatening to turn our Christmas dreams into a holiday nightmare.

But maybe, just maybe, we'll find our harmony amid the chaos.

Wolf’s Midlife Runaway Bride

As if being a 40-year-old runaway bride wasn’t bad enough,
I had to shift at the altar and become a runaway wolf.

My human fiancé may not be my fated mate,
But we share a child, so I thought I could make it work.
I never understood how a wealthy real estate mogul
Could be interested in a meager seamstress like me anyway,
But he was persistent on making me his bride.
Fast forward to today, I’m walking down the aisle.
I think I'm having wedding day jitters—
Until my wolf spots a security guard among the guests,
And immediately knows he’s mine.
When the officiant asks if anyone objects to our union,
My wolf refuses to go along with this charade any longer,
And I shift, right there at the altar, for everyone to see.
So much for keeping the shifter secret under wraps.
In a panic, I grab my little girl and head for the woods,
With the security guard right on my tail.
When his wolf tells me to take cover in his pack’s cabin,
I feel our unmistakable bond even more.
But he works for my fiancé, so can I trust this stranger?
After the stunt I just pulled, I don’t have a choice—
Especially when I discover my fiancé’s been hiding a secret of his own.

Turned by the Midlife Wolf

At 46, I went back to college to learn about mythical creatures.
I never thought my hot professor would turn me into one.

After giving my life to raising my daughters,
It was time for me to live out my dream
And go back to school to get my degree.
Meeting a cute guy my age in the coffee shop,
I thought my first day was off to a great start.
Until I got to class and realized Sean was my professor.
My daughter says he’s the campus crush,
But just like the creatures in his folklore lectures,
His private life is shrouded in mystery—
Which only made me want to find out more.
I signed up for an extra credit field trip,
Looking for Bigfoot in the woods.
But when my car broke down and he drove me home,
The professor gave me an education I’ll never forget.
I’m his student, so we’re forbidden to be together,
But that’s just the beginning of my troubles.
During another outing, I’m shot by a hunter,
And as I lay dying in the forest,
Sean offers me a second chance at life.
He changes into a wolf right before my eyes,
And as he bites me, I return from the brink of death—
As a wolf, just like him.

Wolf’s Midlife Nanny

I’m starting over at 43 and found the perfect nannying job.
Too bad my hot new boss is my fated mate.

When my mate of twenty years started growing distant,
My best friend offered to give him advice.
Little did I know she’d end up pregnant with his baby.
I left Portland and my daycare job behind,
Ready to start anew in my friend’s pack down in Eugene.
The Glenwood pack gave me a warm welcome—
Especially Kane, once my wolf caught sight of him.
The ruggedly handsome cop stood in the doorway,
A single dad holding a tiny newborn in a baby carrier.
A woman had dropped the shifter baby off at the precinct,
Making him a father in an instant.
With a schedule like his, he needed a nanny,
And I was new in town and needed a job.
It was the perfect arrangement—
Until I woke up in his arms.
But that’s not the only danger on Glenwood territory.
My little dream job ends up becoming a nightmare.
I’m thrown in the middle of a war between packs,
But my only combat experience is with screaming kids.
It’s time to put on my big girl pants and jump in.
This precious baby and my only chance at fated love are on the line.
