Three shifter worlds collide. But no matter where they are or what challenges they face, Sebastian, Shadow, and Leo have one thing in common—they'll do whatever it takes to get their mate.

Check out the sexy and thrilling first stories in each of Kristen Strassel's shifter worlds!

Running Wild (The Real Werewives of Alaska)—Wolf shifter Sebastian Connall's twin brother gave him an ultimatum: return to Alaska and die. But when the Alaska Bloodhounds offer him his only chance to fulfill his dream and play football, it's a chance he's willing to take. Finding a mate is the last thing on his mind but the team is connected to a reality dating show—The Real Werewives of Alaska. When Sebastian meets quirky travel blogger Naomi, his wolf knows she's his mate. But can he convince her to accept his danger as part of her adventure?

Forever Home (Sawtooth Shifters)—Wolf shifter Shadow Channing's family is in chains and forced to fight their rivals every new moon. When Trina of Forever Home Animal Shelter breaks up the dog fighting ring, she'll do whatever it takes to keep the dogs she rescued safe. Even when they turn out to be wolves. And when the full moon rises and those wolves shift, she finds herself in the middle of a pack war. But Shadow will do anything to protect the woman who saved his life.

Wanted by the Lion (Colorado Shifters)—Lion shifters toy with their prey before they kill it, and Leo Wylde is no exception. But when the doe he captures in the forest shifts into the beautiful woman he's had his eye on for months, he fears if he reveals his true nature to her, he'll lose her.
