Alice Savage needs an alpha – any alpha – to prevent her pack from being usurped by the lecherous Roscoe. As a last resort, she signs up for the Midnight Liaisons dating service, never expecting that she’d find the alpha she seeks. She certainly didn’t expect Jackson Wilder, a laid back, sexy-as-sin outsider who claims to be an alpha.
But Alice has a problem that most female wolf alphas don’t — she’s a virgin. And the female alpha of a wolf pack always belongs to a male alpha. Luckily for her, Jackson’s utterly gorgeous and willing to take things slow. But is he alpha enough to help her save her pack…or is he too easy-going to be the man she needs?

After meeting Jackson in book 2, DESPERATELY SEEKING SHAPESHIFTER, I was hoping he would get his own story. Jackson is the quite and sexy plumber that worked for Ramsey the bear shifter in DSS. He’s been on his own with a younger wolf shifter Dan for a few years. Which is unheard of since Jackson is an alpha. But he doesn’t want to be a leader of a pack and finds his small pack of two to his liking, until he gets a call from Alice through the Midnight Liaisons dating service.
Alice is the alpha female leader of her pack. She was the co-leader but after the death of the male alpha all the leadership has fallen on her shoulders. So now Alice finds herself grieving for the lost of the pack’s alpha male and having to fight off another alpha male, Roscoe, that wants to take over her pack. Roscoe is a real douche bag and won’t take no for answer. Alice has come to the conclusion that she needs a new male alpha for her pack to keep them safe from Roscoe. But she doesn’t want to step down and knows that most male alphas are asshats.
Alice signs up with the Midnight Liaisons dating services in hopes of finding a single male alpha that won’t be as bad as Roscoe. After having a scare Alice calls one of the wolves she found on the dating site. She is very surprised and pleased when Jackson shows up at her house.
The romance between Jackson and Alice is very sweet. He takes his time with her and shows her that not all male alphas are asshats like she thought. Jackson is very alpha but can be very caring and tender too. He’s the perfect fit for Alice and her pack.
After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.
While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).
