True Nature 

Sometimes, a human makes the best alpha


When wolf-shifter Kelsey Yates discovers that fourteen-year-old shape-shifter Danny Harding is living with a human adoptive mother, she is sent on a secret mission to protect the pup and get him away from the human.

Successful CEO Rue Harding has no idea that the private teacher she hires for her deaf son isn’t really there to teach him history and algebra—or that Danny and Kelsey are not what they seem to be.

But when Danny runs away from home and gets lost in New York City, Kelsey and Rue have to work together to find him before his first transformation sets in and reveals the shape-shifter’s secret existence to the world.

True Nature is the second novel in the shape-shifter series, but it’s a standalone with different main characters and can be read independently of Second Nature.

The Lesbian Review (Anna Gram)

“Even if you’re not the biggest fan of supernatural stories, this one will draw you in with its emphasis on the importance of family, no matter who they are.”

“As always, Jae is able to draw realistic characters, even when they’re not human, and that’s a plus because every time I read one of her books, I know I will encounter a deep story, perfectly told and with endearing characters.”
