Gibson Barton knows his Pack is on the verge of something they will never be able to prepare for: a chance at freedom. Yet when he’s finally able to open his eyes to what might be his fate, it could be too late.
As a submissive wolf of her Pack, Mandy Calhoun has always only watched Gibson from afar. Because of her fears, she hasn’t let her intentions toward him—or the other in her sights—be known.
Oliver Dare is the Foreseer of the Ursine Pack, and knows with each vision, his death is that much closer. Yet he cannot see his own future—or that of the two wolves who have been thrust into his path.
There is danger lurking in the den, and as the three learn to process their emotions and navigate their temptations, they’ll have to fight for something they never knew they had—or sacrifice it all for a purpose far greater than their own destinies.
Sinclair, Alpha of the Unseen Pack, is determined to destroy the Shifter Accommodation Unit. He understands that his people will never be free until the truth is revealed and their enemies are brought out of the shadows and exposed to the public. Unfortunately, the human female who has been secretly working with him has disappeared, and his priorities must shift slightly. He’s resolved to track her down, and not just because she has the information he needs.
Mira Reese isn’t stupid. She’s painfully aware that the sexy shifter she’s been working with has been using her fascination for him to gain access to the CDC computer system. But that doesn’t stop her from helping Sinclair. Not when it allows her to be close to him. But after the CDC kidnaps her, she realizes that this isn’t a game. She’s a potential savior for the future of the shifters—and perhaps especially the loner wolf who stirs her passions.
What happens when an Omega, a submissive wolf and a bear, that also happens to be a foreseer, feel the urge to mate? Denial, that’s what!
Mandy cannot believe that she, a submissive wolf, feels the urge to mate not with one but two strong shifters. She knows it won’t be easy but nothing good ever is. Mandy may be the submissive one but when it becomes apparent that both Gibson and Oliver are struggling to approach each other, she doesn’t hesitate to take matters into her own hands.
Buried is the first story in the series that features a mating bond between 3 shifters and it was ridiculously awesome! Mandy, Gibson and Oliver had a lot of issues to deal with, especially considering that Gibson only recently discovered his Omega abilities, but one thing that was never in question was their love.
At the end of Buried we also get to see some important changes regarding the Shifter Accommodation Unit which are further explored in Shadowed.
This is Sinclair’s story! I repeat this is the story of the ALPHA of the Unseen pack.
Sinclair may be a free shifter but he can’t rest until the SAU is destroyed and all shifters roam free once again. He is really close to collecting all the evidence needed to prove that it wasn’t the shifters that caused the virus but it was man-made. Just before he acquires the last piece of the puzzle though, he realizes that Mira, the computer genius who helped him get his hands on the evidence, is missing.
Mira has known that Sinclair approached her because of the computer skills from the beginning but that didn’t stop her from falling for him. Now Sinclair has come to save her but something has changed and Mira isn’t sure whether or not she can still trust him.
Sinclair was such a sweet but at the same time strong alpha. He thought he was fooling Mira while in truth he was fooling himself. When he thought that something might have happened to Mira because of his mission, he was determined to leave everything behind hoping to find her.
The Branded packs have been found innocent and they are now (almost) free to live again. But can it really be so easy?
