Alpha Etienne Daurensbourg is a centuries old wolf shifter who sits on the Loup Garou Council of North America, works for Garou Industries, and controls a large pack headquartered in Chicago. Certainly a full life, yet he’d trade it all away if it meant finding his mate.
Apparently the gods were listening and took pity on Etienne as he meets former prostitute Julio Reyes visiting the mate of a Council member. Julio has been saving his earnings as an independent prostitute so that he can go to college and someday start a hair salon and day spa. With the help of Alpha Davidoff and his mate Donal, a former prostitute, Julio is about to have his dream come true. Needless to say, Julio believes he doesn’t have time for a relationship though the sexy Etienne does interest him.
When a vicious attack almost kills Julio everything he’d planned takes a step back. This isn’t the way Etienne wanted to woo his mate especially, when he keeps having setbacks. All that matters now is healing Julio. The next step will take some serious discussions.

Julio and Etienne’s compelling romance is more emotional than others in this popular series. The fast paced, consistently intense storyline works well within the frame work laid out. A riveting drama, Julio’s Wolf is the real deal – Julio has met his match.
