The woman was trouble. Ethan had sensed that the moment he’d looked into her dark blue eyes six months ago. Every damn night since, thoughts of her tormented him. Teased him. Tempted him. If that wasn’t enough, it was clear she wanted to make him crazed, to see him snap, to act like the animal he housed.
She wanted to break him in freaking half and keep a piece of him for herself.
The worst part? He wanted to tear his heart out and give it to her, along with his body. Too damn bad it didn’t belong to her.
A low growl rumbled in his chest, and the tips of his fingers burned. He curled his fists and stepped forward.
“Ethan, wait.” Maria grasped his wrist.
Another deep sound escaped him. He shrugged off her hold and strode forward. His wolf had risen, and it wanted the human’s blood on its tongue.
She grabbed his waistband and tugged. He spun, ready to put Maria in her place. Friend or not, she stopped him from going to Hannah. Stopped him from ripping her away from the worthless male who dared touch her. Nobody could, not even him.
“Rein it in.” Maria lowered her voice but not her gaze, proving she was his equal.
“Do not forget where you are.”
A human club, of course. It was why he’d insisted on coming with Maria. Humans flocked to her wherever she went. Too nice, she refused to blow them off. He hated knowing she had to deal with their unwanted advances, so he accompanied her when he could. At the moment, he was glad he’d rearranged his schedule, even if it left him wrestling with his wolf’s instincts to claim and possess.
“I’ll take it outside, but that fucker is going to bleed for touching her.”
She fisted his shirt and tugged him closer. “That fucker is my lover. Hurt him, and I’ll hurt you.”
“Alex?” He stared at the human. “That’s your Alex?” In my woman’s arms. He couldn’t believe it. Maria had told him how much the male cared for her.
“Yes.” She sighed. “And it’s obvious he’ll do anything to win my love, even throw away his already too short life.”
The pain in her voice dimmed some of his anger. He cupped her cheek. She closed her eyes and leaned into his touch, taking the comfort he offered. “I’m sorry.”
Two worthless words. They didn’t do anything to make her situation better. It was all he had to offer her, however. If he’d been a stronger man, he could’ve given her the means to embrace her happiness years ago. He wasn’t. He was fucked-up. Torn.
And goddamn pathetic on top of it.
“Thanks.” She choked on a sob. “At least I know why he wanted me to meet him here. He thought to play on my instincts.”
“And did it work? Will you—”
A sultry moan drifted to him, stopping his words and reigniting his anger. Ruse or not, Alex’s attention triggered Hannah’s lusts. A few days away from her first fertile cycle, she was on edge.

Publication Date: November 28, 2016
Their bond is heaven on earth…but it could tear their pack apart.
Ethan Jager is forced to hide behind a false identity as his pack mates suffer under Michael Tanner’s rule. It’s not his choice; he was born broken, without the primitive urge to breed driving him to pick a mate.
While his wolf sleeps, his heart has chosen for him: Noah, widower and fellow pack dominant.
Everything changes the day Hannah Kagan smiles at him. Lust awakens his wolf–a first. Hannah is beautiful, loyal, kind, everything an alpha male should want. And mating her will allow him to reclaim his pack. It will also leave his soul with a giant hole when he’s forced to rip Noah out of his life.
Hard choices are required of alpha males, but choosing which lover to let go is one Ethan refuses to make. The alternative will not only change the pack, but transform their world…if he can keep his mates alive long enough to claim them both.
Warning: Contains an alpha male whose wolf doesn’t like to share his toys, a dominant female who’s nobody’s plaything, and a beta male who doesn’t roll over for anyone. Also: speed dating, werewolf style. Band-Aids required.

Royal-Kagan Shifter World
Follow his head, he breaks her heart. Follow his heart…he breaks his pack.
From the moment he was born, Nic Kagan’s future was sealed. He’ll accept a mate, have kids, and eventually take over his father’s role as pack alpha. There’s just one problem.
Long ago, his heart settled on Riley, the pack’s human doctor and honorary member. Except only half of him can have her. The other half–his wolf–won’t give a weak non-shifter female a second sniff.
No one–human or shifter–has left a mark on Riley’s soul like Nic. But with his father hospitalized, any hope things could work out between them is slipping away. Yet Riley understands something else about pack life. Power isn’t always a physical gift; love is just as strong. What she and Nic have is worth fighting for.
With rival threats mounting, Nic realizes he can’t simply turn his back on Riley. Though his wolf could tear his heart out for it, he must fight for what he wants before he loses his mate. His pack. Maybe even his sanity.
NOTE: Contains a reluctant alpha with only one roadblock between his heart and the woman he loves–biology. And a woman who isn’t giving up on him, even if it means risking her life to fool Mother Nature.
A true romantic at heart, Nancy Corrigan is convinced there’s a knight in shining armor for every woman (or man), but you won’t find damsels in distress in her stories. She adores pairing alpha heroes with women strong enough to match them and bring them to their knees. She also enjoys flipping the traditional roles in romances because her motto is—love and people should never be forced to conform to anyone’s norm.
She holds a degree in chemistry and has worked in research but now focuses on ensuring quality. She considers it the perfect outlet for her as she’s the first to admit she has some OCD tendencies. It carries over into her writing life too. While engrossed in a novel, she has a habit of forgetting to eat and sleep. Fortunately, she’s married to her own knight in shining armor who understands her oddities and loves her anyway. They reside in Pennsylvania with their three children, dog, snake and guinea pigs. Her other interests include tattoos, animals, classic cars and all things spooky and sexy.
