Four Under the Mistletoe

Sequel to Blue Moon Mating

Rance Diallo, alpha of the Catskill Mountain cougar pride, knew the moment he heard Terence and Samson speak telepathically that he needed them for his betas. So sticking his neck out for them and asking charges of kidnapping against them be dropped by Ben Maxwell, the alpha of the nearby wolf pack, didn't seem like too big of a risk. It took Rance a while to realize the two men were also his mates and manage to convince Terence and Samson of that fact.

Rance successfully bonds with his new betas not a moment too soon, because the visions of his alpha-mate come fast and furious. But Paul is a human, and not just any human, he's the brother of the woman that Terence and Samson inadvertently helped kidnap a couple months ago. Convincing his newly bonded betas that the man who makes up the fourth to their pride's inner circle is so close may be the easy part, because they'll also need to persuade Ben to let the three cougars onto the wolf's territory to meet and court the human. And if they somehow manage that, they'll need to convince Paul, a widower with a three-year-old son, that there really are paranormal creatures in the world and that he's the mate of three male cougar shifters. But even if the human accepts them, will Rance's cougar pride? Read an Excerpt
