A hunting trip in Alaska was supposed to be an enjoyable outing for Alpha Silas Murdoch and his security team.  Leaving behind the responsibility of Ariel Estates for a few days shouldn’t have had repercussions, but it did when his head of security tried to assassinate their leader on the flight home.  Left for dead in the wreckage of the plane crash Silas was able to survive because of his lion shifter genes.

 

Wolf shifter Dr. Theo Lucas was living in self imposed isolation far away from the Haven pack.  His cabin in the wilds of Alaska gave him the time to come to terms with the tragic death of his lover.  Though the two weren’t mates Theo was having a hard time getting over the loss.

 

Finding another shifter clinging to life near a plane crash Theo is able to use his medical skills to save the life of the unknown shifter.  The only thing Theo knows for sure is that the shifter is feline.  As Silas heals the two become aware of what fate has handed them.  But how will others handle the mating of a wolf and a lion?  Silas doesn’t know if others were involved in the plan for his demise and the last thing he wants to do is put Theo in harm’s way.  It’s too late to take things slowly.

 

Out of the flames of tragedy an alpha and his mate land On Thin Ice.  The dramatic romance unfolds for unlikely lovers in book one of the Ariel Estates series.  Mixing a sweet romance with suspense, danger, and later hot loving keeps the story moving briskly along.  Engaging characters battle the shifter version of prejudice and hatred with strength and love.  Silas and Theo find each other On Thin Ice and triumph.
