About A Shifter’s Claim:
A shifter without a mate is a shifter without a mind.
It’s been five years since Shilo’s mate walked out on her and she’s been just a little, tiny bit unstable, a feeling that isn’t helped by the impending fight with a neighboring colony. She might not be all there, but even a crazed shifter knows waking up in a stranger’s bed hours from home to find the contacts from her pack murdered means she’s in trouble.
Aimless and restless and unconcerned with anything beyond his next one-night stand, Waylon agrees to act as bodyguard for some shifter pack liaison embroiled in a power struggle. What could it hurt? He’s been aching for five years, and maybe this assignment will take his mind off all he’s lost. But when he meets his client, his world stops. It’s her. His mate. The one he left.
Thanks to their history, he can’t just walk away and leave her as a target. Thanks to her instability, she can’t go home without backup. If either wants to survive the bloody present, both will have to set aside their heartbreaking past and fight for their uncertain future.

Did I kill him?
She remembered most of it. The flirting, the smiles, the lingering touches. The invite to a party at his place. She’d sent her envoy home against their wishes and hopped in with… What was his name?
She also recalled thinking how three years ago, this guy wouldn’t have turned her head. He was too clean-cut, too arrogant, too lanky, and dressed way too nice with his tapered jeans, loafers, and snappy polo.
Once, she’d searched for quiet confidence, shaggy hair, a muscular build, and clothing swiped from a pile on the floor to fill that empty ache she suffered each day.
Now it seemed any male who could survive her would do.
She prodded her fangs, then winced. The blood-tinged tips of her fingernails caught her eye.
She glanced down at the prone body. What was his name again?
Michael? Micah? Dave?
She took in a calming breath, a steady inhale to fill her lungs. Hold two seconds, release. Okay, it wasn’t unusual for her kind to randomly and indiscreetly have sex without having to swap business cards. They were shifters with primal urges.
But she couldn’t lie to herself. Her urges were getting more than primal. They bordered on rebellious and in her world, that way lay a shortened lifespan.
What had set her off this time?
You must be on your best behavior to secure the technology contract with the Covet pack. They’ve formed solid relations with the humans and can help us upgrade every facet of the colony, from cable TV to security cameras in the surrounding woods.
Her mother had uttered one wrong word in that sentence. Must.
Shilo pushed her long hair off her face and stared at the man. She’d gone home with another human again? Was he breathing?
He was familiar. That’s right. He was the computer programmer who was best buds forever with Langdon Covet. Her mouth curled into a sneer.
The programmer had been sweet and flirtatious. Langdon had disgusted her so entirely that she’d put her entire colony at risk by going home with the computer guy. All because Langdon had so smugly assumed she should be enamored with him.
Sorry, she’d only lost her head over one male before, and all she’d gotten in return was his abandonment.
