Mate, family, pack, home... can Quinn and Kellan have it all? Quinn grew up feeling out of place in the small town he calls home. Yearning for something he can't name, he's always felt different but never known why. Kellan is part of a nomadic shifter pack. When they set up camp in the woods near Quinn's town, the humans are unwelcoming and suspicious of the newcomers. The moment Kellan catches sight-and scent-of Quinn, he knows Quinn is special. But for the first time in his life, Kellan can't trust his instincts. Quinn is human, and Kellan is a wolf shifter, so how can they ever be mates? Their bond is instant and exhilarating. It breaks Quinn's heart to know their relationship can only be temporary. Love isn't enough when pack law forbids shifters to mate with humans. Tension explodes between pack and humans, and when Quinn discovers a shocking truth about himself that changes everything, he fears he'll have to choose between the only life he's ever known and the man he loves.

"Spike looked up at his audience. All of the poodles had watched him begin his feast, but only a few remained now. The rest stood at the water bowls or near the far end of the compound. The terrier licked the last of the blood from his muzzle. 'You poodles don't know what you're missing.'" Meet Spike, a Jack Russell Terrier who thinks he is a wolf; Bull, a half-wolf, half-Rottweiler fight dog who has escaped his tormenting master and reconnected with his wild roots; and Hashi, a beautiful poodle who is focused on winning ribbons, not hearts. "Path of the Wolf" is about a boy and his dog, a dog and the dog of his dreams, and an underdog making it out on top. Can Spike, the wolf-dog, win the heart of his beloved poodle, Hashi, while staying true to his wolf ideals? Can Bull avoid man and still survive in the wild? Will Hashi choose Spike, the wildcard in her life, or the safe and pre-ordained path to victory in the show ring? Forget the furry friends story about dogs and cats. Join Spike and Bull on their hunts; share their kills; watch their fights; and experience their love of life as they follow the "Path of the Wolf."

When Reuben, otherwise known as Sunshine Boy, was sent to write a piece about the uncertain future of the giant house on the cliff, he wasn't expecting to warm so instantly to elegant heiress Marchent Nideck. Nor was he expecting to get caught up in a violent attack which will leave him changed in ways he could never have imagined ... Anne Rice's 'Vampire Chronicles' defined a genre, but now she has another age-old story in her sights: the terrifying werewolf legend. The classic monster of horror fiction is here reimagined and reinvented, with all Rice's supernatural sympathy and inventiveness, as a romantic being, a potentially tragic figure bestowed with the gift of transformation and transcendence. The Wolf Gift is a glorious celebration - of storytelling, of possibility, of truths revealed in the half-light. And in The Wolf Gift's Reuben, we have a brand new hero for a brand new Anne Rice world.

New York Times bestseller Dana Stabenow returns with her most outstanding novel yet, teaming up two of her most beloved characters, Aleut private investigator Kate Shugak and Alaska state trooper Liam Campbell, in the same story for the first time. Alaska aviation entrepreneur Finn Grant died in the fiery crash of his Piper Super Cub. Someone sabotaged his engine, and virtually everyone in southwestern Alaska has a motive, including his betrayed wife, his bullied children, and Liam's wife, bush pilot Wyanet Chouinard. With few places to turn, Liam asks his former mentor Niniltna post commander Sergeant Jim Chopin, for help, and Jim quickly brings Kate onto the case. Working undercover as—of all things—a waitress at Bill's Bar and Grill, Kate learns over beer and burgers that Grant's business had expanded meteorically over the last two years. After buying the closed Air Force base south of town from the federal government at a bargain-basement price, he became a fixed-base operator running his fishing, hunting, and flight-seeing business, servicing planes flying through the area, and most interestingly and lucratively, getting into the air freight business. But what kind of freight was he moving, and where? The answers involve Kate in her most challenging case to date, one that starts with murder and quickly sprawls into a much larger conspiracy ranging from the darkest family secrets to treason and beyond. Restless in the Grave is a treat for fans and another outstanding addition to Dana Stabenow's acclaimed and award-winning series.
