Rise of the Pride
The Rules Have Changed…
Dane Walker, Guardian to the Shaw pride, has never lived by the rules. His tastes have always been on the side of extreme. With each passing day that he is tasked to protect the werepanther-owned bar, The Deuce, Dane’s obsession with the two human employees strengthens. He doesn’t trust anyone but himself to guard the bartender, Cole Bryant, and the waitress, Olivia Stone, and he can’t deny his feelings for them both.
Meanwhile, a drug cartel is on the hunt for the men who imprisoned their leader and they want revenge. Cole’s name is at the top of the list, and when they kidnap his baby brother, the pride rallies around them for protection. The pride is on lockdown, but Olivia is targeted before the plan to take out the cartel is put into place.
An emergency making it necessary for Olivia to be turned into a shifter changes everything the pride has ever known about finding a forever mate. The moment Dane gives her his blood, he feels the magic of a mating. Olivia is to be his forever mate, but what he didn’t know…Cole would be claimed as her other mate when she awakens from her change. Dane must do everything in his power to protect everyone he loves, knowing he may have to fight to the death to keep them safe.
