Rehabilitating His Dingo
Wolves of Stone Ridge: Book Twenty-Three
 
When wolf shifter Yates Cruner helps save several humans from a dingo shifter pack that had been using them as slaves, he doesn't expect to find his mate among them. Oh, not one of the humans, but one of the surviving dingo shifters who has been beaten and abused just as much as the humans. It seems the dingo pack had one rule...I'm more dominant than you, I can do whatever I want to you. Yates realizes his little mate has a long road of healing ahead, and most of it isn't for physical wounds.
 
Aryen Fowles learned his place early in life, keep his head down, kneel at the other shifter's feet, and do whatever they ask. If he did that, he could avoid being punished. When a group of strange shifters take over the pack, the rules change. Aryen struggles to understand what's expected of him.   Read More

While the fact that his mate can walk only with the aid of crutches concerns Luc, it's certainly not the deal-breaker Dylan seems to think it is. Luc is far more concerned about the fact that Dylan is human, so very young...and in the closet. Dylan is more than happy to get physical with Luc behind closed doors, but he's afraid of losing his parents if they find out he's gay.  Read More
