The Wyoming Shifters: 12 Years Later is a spin-off set in the same universe as the Whitedell, Gillham, Enforcers, Assassins, and Green Hill series. It features the children and babies from the Whitedell Pride and the Gillham Pack series.
Some things are not meant to stay hidden.
Asher has known Terry was his mate for years. They grew up together, and he kept his secret for fear of losing both his best friend and the only family he had after his aunt died. Besides, Terry is straight, and he has a girlfriend.
When Terry’s girlfriend dumps him, he goes home to his father—and Asher. He knows they’ll both take care of him, even though he’s not hurting as much as he should be. How can he when he’s been in love with Asher for more than ten years?
Asher is tasked to take a drunken Terry back home, and he makes the mistake of telling him they’re mates, thinking he’s sleeping and won’t even hear it. But Terry does, and he confronts Asher the next morning, angry and hurt.
Will Terry be able to get over those feelings and finally have Asher in his life as his mate?
Sometimes the best thing in your life is the result of the worst thing that happened to you.
Ned is fleeing New York—and Paris, one of his one-night stands who can’t take no for an answer. He goes back home to Gillham, hoping Paris won’t find him, but not really believing it. The last thing he expected was to meet his mate. He’s only twenty-two, and he has a stalker. What is he going to do with a mate?
Luke didn’t think he had a mate until he met Ned. He was created in a petri dish and raised as a killer until the pack rescued him when he was seven, and he is neither human nor shifter. To add to his weirdness, he’s a virgin, and he’s not interested in sex.
Ned keeps Luke at arm’s length, especially after Paris manages to find him and threatens his best friend, Amy. It gets harder and harder to stay away from Luke, though, and Ned is torn between the need to be with his mate and the need to keep Luke safe.
Will Ned be able to find a compromise? Will Paris be stopped in time, or will he manage to separate Ned and Luke before they even get a chance to be together?
Sometimes our deepest fears turn out to be unfounded.
Josh has been avoiding his mate, Brian, since they first met twelve years before. He had good reasons at first—he was only sixteen and had just lost the only family he’d ever known—but he knows he can’t continue to stay away, not if he doesn’t want to lose Brian for good.
Brian has been patiently waiting for Josh to get over whatever his problem is, but he knows he can’t wait forever. He loves Josh, has loved him for years, but he doesn’t want to live his entire life waiting for him.
Josh finally decides it’s time to talk to Brian and come clean, no matter how scared he is of rejection. Of course, that’s when his biological mother appears in his life. As if that wasn’t enough, Brian finds out his father has cancer. Will the complications push Brian and Josh apart, or will they bring them together?
Age is just a number, especially when it comes to love.
Hugo never expected his life to go the way it has. He’s only twenty-one, yet here he is, single father to a three-month-old Ennis. His parents aren’t happy he made the decision to keep Ennis, but he’s dealing with everything better than he ever thought he would, and when he meets his mate, he feels everything coming together.
Leo is lucky his son lives in Gillham. With the help of the pack, he managed to beat cancer, and he can now focus on Brian and his mate, Josh, and on rebuilding his life. He knows it won’t be easy, but at fifty-four, he doesn’t expect much. He certainly didn’t expect to have a mate and for him to be thirty-three years his junior.
Leo tries to stay away from Hugo because he thinks he’s too old. No one else seems to think that’s a problem, or no one who matters, anyway. But will Leo be able to get over his hang-ups and give his relationship with Hugo a chance? The family he’s always wanted is right in front of him. Will he take that opportunity, or will he let his age get the better of him?
Sometimes good things come from the worst moments in our life, even though we don’t see it right away.
Sterling is only twenty-two, so the last thing he expects when he attends the Gillham pack Halloween party is to meet his mate. Adam is even younger than Sterling, only twenty, and he lives in Whitedell. They agree to date, and everything goes well—until it doesn’t.
Adam is still getting used to having met his mate when tragedy strikes. Sterling’s parents are killed in an accident, leaving him in charge of his three siblings and heartbroken. The time isn’t right for love, and Adam has to make a decision.
Is he ready to be there for Sterling through his loss and dealing with a new life in which he’s responsible for three lives? Or will the sudden pressure be too much for him? And with everything that’s going on, will Sterling be able to open himself up to love and a possible future with his mate?
What you are doesn’t matter. Who you are does.
Even after seeing Luke find his mate, Nathan isn’t sure he has one. They’ve been engineered in the same lab and spent the first years of their lives together, but they’re different, and Nathan knows it might mean there’s no one out there for him. But even if there was, he’s only nineteen, too young for any kind of serious relationship, even though his best friends are both happy with their mates.
Felix is half-demon, and he doesn’t have a mate. It’s not like he wants one, but he wishes his mother would stop throwing full-blooded demons at him in the hopes that he’d pick one and marry him. He’s not sure why she’s doing it, but he’s had just about enough.
When Felix and Nathan meet, Felix is elated—and Nathan runs. Their relationship isn’t the only thing they have to learn to navigate, though. Felix’s mother is still trying to get him to marry a demon, and there’s a new drug in town, one that has a devastating effect on shifters. Will they be able to make it through, or will the pressures on their budding relationship be the end of it?
You can’t close up your heart, no matter how badly you were hurt in the past.
Brandon has all the problems eighteen-year-old guys have—an overbearing mother, a little brother he could do without, and two slightly pushy best friends. When he goes dancing one night, he doesn’t expect to find himself with more problems—and a mate.
Maddox is a loner, and he likes it. He trusts his numerous pets more than most humans, but some people don’t allow him to push them away, like Asher, his coworker and best friend. Asher is the only reason Maddox finds himself dragged to the club even though he hates crowds and dancing. And when he steps into the bathroom and realizes something is happening in one of the stalls, the evening takes a turn for the worse. Someone drugged his mate and assaulted him.
Brandon knows he was lucky Maddox stepped in when he did, but when the man who drugged him escapes before being taken to the council jail, he expects things to go south. He’s not sure why Maddox offers him to stay at his house, since he clearly loves living alone, but he’s not about to say no to the possibility of getting to know his mate better, even though Maddox keeps him at arm’s length.
But the man who drugged Brandon is on the run, and he’s coming for Brandon. Will Maddox be able to keep his mate safe—even from himself? Or will he break Brandon’s heart before losing him?
Trusting is never easy, but sometimes, it’s the only thing you can do.
Telyn has had enough. He only has his mother in his life—no friends, no family, no job, and no real future—but he can’t stand the abuse anymore. He decides to leave his mother and life as he knows it behind, even though he doesn’t have money or a place to stay, and heads for Gillham.
Lee’s life is changing. He graduated high school, one of his best friends found his mate and moved in with him, and the other was arrested for helping a drug dealer with a kidnapping. Lee is also moving out of the house he’s called home since he was adopted when he was eight, and he needs a bit of time to wrap his mind around everything.
So, of course, life throws him a curveball and drops his mate into his life. Lee has no idea how to help the demon he finds sleeping behind a dumpster, but he knows Telyn is his mate, and he’s going to do everything he can to keep him safe and as happy as possible.
Things aren’t easy, though. Lee throws himself into his relationship with his mate, but Telyn is much more hesitant. He doesn’t know if he can trust Lee, not when he couldn’t trust the one person who should have loved him unconditionally. Lee isn’t easily dissuaded, though, and living on the streets weighs heavily on Telyn. They will have to learn to trust and to live together if they want a chance at a new beginning—for both of them.
Sometimes the past isn’t as easy to leave behind as we’d like.
Gabriel doesn’t like his life. It’s better than the one he would have if the Gillham pack hadn’t rescued him from the streets, but he’s working himself to the bone to make sure Alice, the woman he considers his sister, gets better opportunities than him. He realized something was eventually going to break a while ago, but he never expected that the reason for it would be his mate.
Cyn is leaving behind the life he’s known until now— including his parents’ money, the job they’d been planning for him, and the arranged marriage they want him to enter. He doesn’t know what he’ll encounter when he goes to Gillham to find his cousin Noah, but it’s not a cute shifter telling him they’re mates. He never expected to have one, since demons don’t have mates, but it’s a perfect way to turn his life around.
If only his mate’s sister didn’t hate him.
What happens when your fake boyfriend turns out to be your mate?
Teddy is focused on one thing, and one thing only—making his brother proud. That means finishing his Master’s degree with the highest grades possible, then finding a good job. Those plans don’t leave time for anything else, so when Teddy is told he needs a date for a birthday party, he lies and says he has one in the hopes that he’ll be able to wiggle his way out of the party.
Instead, he finds himself having to come up with a fake boyfriend, and he has no idea who can help him with that, so he’s lucky Sterling, a Gillham pack member and one of his acquaintances, comes up with someone.
When a pack member approaches Ollie and asks him if he wants to play fake boyfriend for a friend of his, Ollie agrees. He hopes it will help distract him from the jealousy he feels at the sight of his best friend with his mate. He loves Gabriel and Gabriel’s new mate, but he wants what they have, and he doesn’t know how to get it.
They’re both stunned when they meet at the party and realize they’re mates. Teddy doesn’t have time for Ollie, but can he really give up his only chance at being with his mate? And can Ollie get over what his parents did to him and trust Teddy, especially when Teddy is trying so hard to keep him at arm’s length?
