Last Alpha, Rogue Male & Snow Wolf. by Ruby Fielding. A Highland Shifter Trilogy.

He never wanted to fall in love. She never planned to let him.

Jenny Layne has made a career out of investigating werewolf reports, but every case has only confirmed that shapeshifters are the stuff of legend or madness. Until now. Lured to a remote Scottish estate to meet a researcher working on the science behind the werewolf phenomenon, Jenny finds steadily mounting evidence that something strange is running wild in the hills.

Billy Stewart has traveled the world in pursuit of stories of shapeshifters and other strange phenomena, but the last thing he ever expected to find was love. Billy is not a man who falls easily, but when he does, it is a force of nature. When he meets Jenny he knows immediately that she is his soulmate, but Jenny is not so sure. Are his intense feelings for her just some kind of insanity, or is Jenny turning him away because that's exactly what she always does when a guy gets interested?

By turns passionate romance and gripping paranormal thriller,Last Alpha tells the story of two people whose paths collide with earth-shattering consequences. As love boils over and the dark secrets buried away in Jenny and Billy's past rise to the surface, a night of murder raises the stakes yet higher.

And as she fights for her own survival, Jenny must face perhaps the biggest question of them all. In matters of life, death and love, can Beauty ever really hope to tame the Beast?


Jenny Layne is a blogger who chases weird stories. Her fame is starting to spread. She has managed to get an invitation to the castle of Mr Carr, a Scottish eccentric who is funding research into werewolves. He has millions at his disposal to get the best scientist on board. 
Billy Stewart met Jenny in the USA when he went to watch a man stand trial for murder. The man believed he was a werewolf. That's why Billy suggested his boss employ Jenny to do some Pr work for them. 
This is a very interesting story. Quite believable in the way our heroine views what she learns. Our hero is a lonely man who has been search his whole adult life for someone like himself. I think the series will grow on you.


She'd always known he was a bit of a rogue, but what if it was worse than that? So much worse...

Skye Parker wasn't that girl. She never had been. The one who chases love. The one who puts romance ahead of everything else. The one who would travel the length of the country in response to a throwaway online comment and a whole lot of wishful thinking.

Until now.

Iain Logan is most definitely that boy. The wild one. 'Trouble' is not so much his middle name as something engraved on his heart. He's a young man with secrets, too. Secrets that make him hold everything at a distance, even the girl who might just be the love of his life.

When Iain finds evidence that wolves are running wild near his Scottish Highlands home after an absence of close to three centuries it's a chance to prove himself - if only he can get people to believe him. But as old friends rebuff him and the dark truth unfolds, Iain has some tough choices to make. Choices with life-changing consequences.

It would be madness for Skye to fall for him. Dangerous. But sometimes madness is the most sensible thing of all.

Skye has come up into the highlands to visit a man she kissed when they were both in university.  He has no idea she is coming. There is something about him that draws her.
Iain has wasted four years at university, and has nothing to show for it. He should have buckled down to work,  but the big city and the party atmosphere was too much of a temptation.  All he can do now is hope to get work up at the castle. He knows the land and hopes the owner will employ him.
Jim Carr the castle owner has his own reasons for wanting Iain close by.
Once again our villain is manipulating people for his own desires.  Using his money and position to ride rough shot over anyone who gets in his way.
The second in the series that must be read in order. A very different type of werewolf story.


Can you ever be sure of a shifter's heart?

Jenny Layne has her man, but does she really have his heart?

Just when Jenny needs him most, Billy Stewart has gone missing. Has she scared him away, is he in danger, or has he succumbed to the call of the wild? As the worst winter in a generation closes in, the search for Billy rapidly becomes a matter of life or death - for him, and for those who seek him.

Jenny is the person most likely to find him, so why does she refuse to shift into wolf-form and join the search? What does she fear even more than losing the love of her life?

In the third and final part of her acclaimed Highland shifter series, Ruby Fielding asks just how much would you be willing to give up for the one you love?

Jenny is adapting to her life as a werewolf, but has worries about the way they are living. Billy is happy up in the highlands, in the middle of nowhere, but Jenny is more practical. When Billy goes out on his own one day and doesn't come back the panic sets in.
Iain can't understand why Jenny won't shift to hunt for Billy so tempers flare.
Guess who is at the root of their problems. Will this be the end of the pack?  Can two alphas live so close together?
This is the third part of the series,  the previous ones must be read first.
