ISBN: n/a

Continuing series featuring a secret group of shifters, witches and hunters battling for survival and power. In Christa Wick's series shifters live in a secret world being pursued by a group of hunters who are interested in killing and draining their power. Within each clan is a witch obligated from birth to take care of the clan. The hunters also want the witch's power, so the shifters protect the witch. 

In first book, Wolf Curves, Alpha Seth meets his mate, Leah in an elevator while out searching for hunters. The only thing is his mate isn't a wolf, but there is something about her that has made the wolf inside Seth sit up and take notice. It appears that Leah is a latent wolf. She can't shift, but she has wolf genes in her family tree. 

Leah doesn't know anything about werewolves and witches and can't understand why suddenly hunters want her dead. She does know that the sexy alpha Seth makes her want to sit up and beg, but living in his world could get her killed. 

In book 2  Curve Charm, witch Esme and alpha wolf Dana have known each other since children and at one point Esme thought that Dana really loved her, but something went wrong and she has no idea what. When the clan alpha requires that Esme pick a mate so that they know her loyalities say with the clan, Esme would rather pick anyone but Dana, but he leaves her no choice. 

Fine, she'll mate with him, but that doesn't mean she has to spend anymore than the one time with him at all, because Dana has made it clear he would rather be with anyone but her.

In book 3, Alpha Curves, Alpha Cade knows that things are are changing within the clans. Over the last several months there have been several latents and children found among the general public and they are need protection from the hunters. While out trying to find another latent Cade can't believe that he finds his long lost mate Iris.

Iris was nearly pushed from the pack a dozen years ago by the pack alpha, Cade's father Hank. Hank is long gone, but Iris had no idea and has stayed away, but now that she's been gone from the pack so long she realizes it was all for the better. While with the pack she never shifted and she had a lot of magic that the other wolves didn't have. She was so much of an outcast that the only one that accepted her was Cade. But Cade can't let Iris go now that he's found her again. She can't go back to her human world anyway, now that the hunters are looking for her. 

The first three short novellas tell individual stories of the members of the clan, however should be read in order. The series is expected to continue with other stories in the future. So far the series reads well, if not a little short in each version. It would be great to have one full length novel on the story and get into a lot more detail and world building. The stories all together are certain worth on full version. 

Wolf Curves—Book 1
Leah Howard doesn’t believe in werewolves, even if she dreams of shifting. Pack alpha Seth Gladwin can’t understand why a human female is ringing all his mating bells.

When Seth chases Leah down in her apartment building and partially shifts in front of her, he wants nothing more than a forgetting spell placed on the plus-size beauty so he can continue investigating a secret society of Hunters intent on making the local werewolf clan extinct.

Only this time, the society’s prey isn’t shifters -- it’s Leah. 

Curve Charm—Book 2
The sheltering of new latents threatens to expose the local wolf clan to a secret society of Hunters intent on driving the shifters to extinction. To strengthen the magic protecting their land, the clan's leader demands an ancient ritual that will bring Esme and Dana together for one sexually charged night but could drive them apart forever -- if the Hunters don't kill them first. 

Alpha Curves—Book 3
Nine months have passed since the influx of latents onto clan lands began. For Cade Mercer, the time has been a season in purgatory as he leads his team on a series of dangerous runs to locate mates for other shifters -- a sour, jagged pill to swallow when his own mate disappeared more than a dozen years ago. 
When the current rescue goes south in a hurry, Cade is more than a little tempted to follow his teammate’s suggestion and throw the woman they seek back into the "latent pool."
Until he smells her and all hell breaks loose...
