Abandoned as a child Adisa Derringer was found and raised by the Horseman of War. When Adisa grew up he chose a career as an Enforcer for the Shifter Council.  At the moment he’s in the doghouse for not following the orders of a narrow minded, arrogant council member.  Lucky for Adisa that council member Grandis is willing to request his services.

 

Reports have reached the Shifter Council which must be looked into involving the Stone Ridge pack.  An anonymous source is saying that Alpha Declan McIntire and his pack is getting power hungry.  Councilman Grandis must investigate the claim.

 

Adisa and Grandis aren’t there long before a problem arises, a big problem in the form of a feral shifter recently rescued after years of captivity.  The huge wolf is so messed up and so aggressive he’s unable to shift to human.  And he’s Adisa’s mate who’s now torn between protecting his charge or getting through to his mate.  The timing certainly sucks.

 

A multi-layered plotline showcases a wild and bumpy ride titled Succumbing to His Nature.  The incredibly popular Wolves of Stone Ridge series celebrates book 41 with special shifter mates involved in a tangled adventure.  Satisfying from start to finish.  Succumbing to His Nature adds another winner to a very long list.

Kendrick Hollister recently broke up with his wealthy boyfriend Douglas.  The guy was definitely not a keeper.  Ken had put off dumping the guy because he was great in bed.  Being a size queen wasn’t a good enough reason to stay, it really wasn’t.

 

Taking a break from his computers Vadim is late in joining the family at a restaurant to celebrate a beloved’s birthday.  Finally arriving Vadim barely sits down before instinctually realizing that one of their waiter’s is his beloved.

 

Serving a large group in the backroom, Ken doesn’t understand why he’s so drawn to the big guy that came in late.  He simply knows he’d like to get to know the big guy. One is intrigued.  One is scared.  Fate matched them perfectly.  They just have to realize it and stop a jealous ex in his tracks.
