Gathering. Pack law dictates he must have a mate by his thirty-sixth year or
forfeit his rule. But what if he’s already found her and lost her in a swirl of
cinnamon-scented dreams? Can this Alpha brave a sea of single wolfy females to
find the one woman who enchanted his heart?
law, even as an adopted cat, she must attend the Gathering for the Alpha to
select a new mate. Heading to a wolf ball isn’t high on her list of fun
activities, but damned if she can’t get the image of a certain amber-eyed wolf

situation. He had been up against a being far superior in strength but what he
lacked in brawn, he’d more than made up for in sheer bullheadedness. And the
