Autumn Moon (The Alpha Wolf Book 1)

By

Tanneheuk, Montana appears to be an idyllic small town. There’s no crime, no poverty, and no racism. The town is overseen by a small group known as “the elders,” a tribe of people who have watched over Tanneheuk for hundreds of years. The elders are shapeshifters – werewolves – and they protect the townspeople from the corrupting influence of outsiders. In return for their protection, they only require one thing:

Every year, on the first day of Autumn, they want to hunt a human…

Drake Burroughs is a young minister with a checkered past. Newly assigned to the Tanneheuk Church, he knows there’s something dark going on beneath the surface of the seemingly perfect little town. When he discovers the truth about the elders, he convinces the townspeople that the hunt is a sin against God, and they should break their pact with the werewolves.

Roman is the Alpha Wolf, the leader of the elders, struggling to keep his pack together and his leadership unquestioned. Roman knows the annual hunt is archaic, but also understands the importance of tradition for a race of beings who live on the cusp of extinction. But the growing dissension between the townspeople and his pack is not the only reason to cause Roman to hate Drake Burroughs:

Diana, Roman’s sister, is sexually drawn to the new minister, and is willing to do anything to act on it. Even kill, if necessary.

Added to this volatile mix is a family of con artists hiding out in Tanneheuk; a female pot-smoking deputy, torn between her unrequited love for one man and her burgeoning desire for another; a young girl training for the annual hunt, determined to be the next chosen; a restored 1970 Dodge Charger; Karaoke night; lots and lots of guns…

It might Judgment Day for Tanneheuk.
