Proctor is taking a few weeks of his vacation time to visit his ex-partner from the squad who recently moved with his partner to Black Creek, Vermont.  As soon as Proctor arrives however his suspicions are aroused by the somewhat mysterious goings on of his longtime friends in their new surroundings. 

Meeting Donny is a complication Proctor never expected to encounter either.  The much younger man thoroughly captivates the vacationing cop.  Getting involved seems pointless since Proctor won’t be there long, yet spending time with Donny feels so good. Proctor’s sixth sense tells him that something is going on in Black Creek.  His libido is going crazy as well.  When events force the issue and reveal their secrets to Proctor, he doesn’t know what to believe.  The cop would love to walk away but he can’t, especially from Donny.

Tensions mount when lives are threatened in One Bratty Omega.  The second tale in the Building the Pack series brings opposites together with passion and a feeling of rightness as author Stephani Hecht takes up the reins.  Also, the suspense continues as the pack tries to catch a killer while maintaining their secrecy.  A solid plotline, warm and quirky characters, as well as juicy hot sex add up to a worthwhile story.  One Bratty Omega is an enjoyable addition to this new series.  Mix one straightforward gay cop with an offbeat, charming omega and watch the fireworks begin.

Alpha Tiberius or Tiber and newly sworn in sheriff Connor discover a badly injured red wolf shifter in the woods.  The stranger is lucky to have survived the killer black wolf shifter terrorizing the area. 

 Hearing rumors of a pack that tolerates gays, Keir sets out for Black Creek unaware that the area is under attack by a rogue shifter intent on destroying the local wolf pack.  The unprovoked attack leaves Keir barely alive, but when help comes the red wolf knows he’s found his mate. 

 Typically the Alpha is expected to take several mates for the overall strength of the pack.  Keir, as a red wolf has no intention of sharing Tiber with anyone.  Convincing Tiber of his devotion is simple.  Making certain others bow out may take some time.  No problem, Keir will be the only wolf Tiber can handle. 

 Drama and fate ratchet the tension for an Alpha and his mate in the third Building the Pack story.  Author Amber Kell packs plenty of passion and suspense in The Alpha’s Only.  Red wolf Keir is introduced to the Black Creek pack and his destiny.  Danger continues to plague the shifters as more layers are added to the plotline in this enjoyable tale.
