Catching Her Wolf

The Shifters of Sanctuary, Book 5


Not everyone is Sanctuary is living their fated happily ever after. Not yet anyway.

Devon Stone joined the Marines at eighteen leaving behind his pack and too young mate to fulfill his dream. Once his service to his country was up, he fully intended to return to Sanctuary and claim Janelle. Now, it’s too late. Broken both inside and out, he’s no longer the boy she remembers. She wouldn’t want this new version of him. Angry. Jaded. Scarred.

Janelle “Janie” Harper has a reputation for being a flirt. Many assume she followed up her words with actions. They were wrong. Her heart has and always would belong to one wolf. She’s waited years for Devon to return home and claim her as he promised. Only that didn’t happen. Instead, he’s hidden himself away on his cousin Koda’s land and avoided her at all costs. She should move on, but how does one give up on the other half of their soul?

Devon and Janie have kept the fact that they are mates hidden from their families for years. When their connection is discovered, the Shifters of Sanctuary plot to bring the fated couple together by any means necessary.

This is my favorite book so far of this series. Loved the plan that Devon's family came up to get him to put aside his insecurities and go after his mate, Janie. There were many moments in this story that had me laughing out loud. -Kindle Reviewer Lovemonkeys

This is a sweet well written shifter romance with everything you would want in a story. The book has tons of heart, drama, and some passion tied up with a HEA. -Kindle Reviewer Dawn

Story Excerpt

Devon filled his plate with meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and Caesar salad. Ella was all about making sure he was eating enough. After enduring quite a few of these family dinners over the past couple of months, he knew the faster he ate the quicker he could make his escape. He began shoveling food into his mouth.

Koda and Ella sat on each end of the table. Stephani Ann was next to her momma. Matt sat across from him. He could feel them watching him and did his best to ignore them, especially the ones he knew held mischief and triumph. Brat. He couldn’t however ignore the grating titter that floated across the table every few minutes. He glanced up with a scowl.

“Dude. You should have seen your face.” Matt snickered. “I so got you.” He waved his hands in the air doing a little touchdown dance in his seat.

By got him, Matt meant the prank he pulled involving the dead rattlesnake he left coiled just inside the barn doors for Devon to find that morning. Devon had been feeding the patients in the medical building when Matt came looking for him. The little shit went on and on about a broke latch on Lady’s stall that required two hands to fix. Koda and Jim had gone into town which left Devon. He’d walked into the barn and nearly pissed himself.

Koda snicker-snorted earning him a baleful look from Devon.“Sorry. I shouldn’t encourage him.” Koda laughed some more. “I didn’t realize you and Storm had something in common. He’s deathly afraid of snakes.”

“I’m not afraid.”

“Really? You jumped like ten feet and hid behind me.” Matt frowned eyeing Devon up and down like he was a squashed bug on the bottom of his shoe. “You were willing to sacrifice your own cousin to save your ass. Some Marine you are.”

He may or may not have been willing to use Matt as a shield. Devon had been completely embarrassed once he realized the fucking disgusting scaly bastard snake was dead and Matt had pranked the shit out of him. Devon growled when Ella joined Koda and Matt in undisguised amusement.

If Stephanie Ann wasn’t sitting in her highchair a couple of feet away Devon would have jumped across the table and smacked the snot out of Matty. Which is what he should have done after Matt pulled the stunt with the snake. But at the time Devon had been too busy trying to not have a heart attack.

The almost toddler watched them with big curious eyes. Matt noticed and leaned toward her. “I think I’m in trouble,” he whispered with just enough sarcasm to make Koda grin like an idiot. “Will you protect me, baby girl?”

Stephanie Ann must have thought that was the funniest thing she’d ever heard. “Matt. Matt.” She slammed her palms against the tray and giggled. Her sweet laughter filled the air and also miraculously eased some of Devon’s anger. Didn’t mean he wouldn’t be paying his cousin back though. Nope when he did that shit would be epic.

“Looks like I have a protector now. Suck it, Dev,” Matt taunted with a smirk.
Devon smirked right back and crossed his arms over his chest. “I didn’t hear any agreement coming from the princess. All I heard was her laughing at your dumbass.”

“Dumb bass.”

Everyone froze and stared at each other. Matt grinned like a loon. Koda wore an expression of amused horror. Ella just looked pissed. At him.

“Seriously, Dev?” Ella spat. She shook her head. He swore fire was about to shoot from her eyes. “What did I tell you all about watching your language around the baby? They always pick up the bad words.”

Huh. He thought she was just acting overprotective when she’d laid down the edict his second day at the sanctuary when he’d let an f-bomb fly.

Stephanie Ann bounced in her seat. She grabbed a Cheerio off her tray and shoved it in her mouth. She giggle-snorted, said dumb bass again, then squealed with laughter.

Ella covered her face with her hands and groaned. “I’m going to murder you, Dev.”

Love without limits. Happily ever after... always.
