"The only thing dumber than convincing the imminent Male Alpha of Velm to help me find Oko would be falling in love with him along the way."
Helisent West of Jaws is a powerful witch with a penchant for combative shouting and hoarding brandy. Then there's Samson 714 Afador, an uptight (possibly brooding) wolf who's in line to lead Velm as its Male Alpha. When the pair meet in a seedy tavern in a city named Luz, it's clear they have little in common.
Aside from a shared enemy named Oko.
Driven by private motives, the pair strike a deal to hunt down Oko—but trouble quickly follows. In the magical world of Mieira, wolves and witches share a gory past laden with conflict. Not even the peaceful, hedonistic nymphs have forgotten about the bloodshed of the War Years.
Despite this, what starts as a tense partnership between the witch and the wolf soon blossoms into friendship and something more—something layered with curiosity, and delight, and fear. Something that starts to involve a dangerous amount of trust.
As the pair close in on Oko, their discoveries begin to point to a single conclusion. One that will change life in Mieira forever. One that will force Helisent and Samson to ask—what's worth more, finding Oko or fighting for each other?
West of Jaws is an adult romantasy from indie author Capes. Think: Sex and the City meets The Witcher.
