Book blurb:

Nathan Roberts was just your average polyamorous librarian living in Vancouver until his best friend, Deanna started dating a werewolf. While hosting the small pack in his apartment while they hid from the underground network of Huntsmen, Nathan enjoyed a casual fling with Cole, the pack leader’s brother. But now, he may just be falling for him.

When his neighbor is murdered, Nathan is convinced the death is linked to the supernatural, but Cole and their friends deny any paranormal connection. This leads to a fracture of trust in their relationship, and Cole’s pack is left to deal with an unknown killer on the loose. As Nathan pursues answers on his own, he must come to terms with the truth, and his feelings for Cole.

Exclusive Excerpt:

“I don’t not trust them,” Nathan argued. “I don’t trust GNAAW. I don’t trust that it’s just werewolves. Doesn’t that seem insane to you? That, with everything...” He gestured widely. “...the whole canon of mythical creatures and it’s just werewolves that are real? How does that make sense?”
“I don’t know! I’m not a scientist. I’m not a, a biologist or an anthropologist. But I trust that the people who’d be in a better position to know than us—the until-recently-secret werewolves—are the authorities on the matter!”
“Why? Why do you trust them?”
“Because...” Deanna threw up her hands in frustration. “Because who else am I supposed to trust? Who else is figuring it out?”
“Me, Dee.” Nathan said, stung. “I am. Why do you believe them and not me?”
“Oh, Nathan.” Deanna leaned across the couch and put her hand on his thigh. “I believe you. I believe that you’ve had a year more eventful than most peoples’ entire lives. I believe that you believe it. But I don’t know if I believe that it’s true. I’m sorry.” Her green eyes pleaded with him to understand.
“No, you believe because Jamie says that it’s just werewolves.”
“Admit it. You believe her over me. If it was us, just you and me, and we discovered werewolves existed, don’t you think we—independent of said werewolves—would wonder what else there was? If you didn’t have one in your bed, can you tell me, honestly, that you wouldn’t mistrust an entire freakin’ different species whose whole safety net was built around the lie that they didn’t exist?”
Dee withdrew her hand and leaned against her side of the couch. Between them, Arthur whined.
“But that isn’t the case, and I trust Jamie,” Deanna explained patiently. “If the wolves knew about other mythical creatures, or whatever, that were real, they would tell us. And since they haven’t, I think it’s safe to say that there aren’t.”
Jamie would tell you.”
“What’s that supposed to mean?”
Nathan shrugged. “Maybe Jamie doesn’t know.”
