Captured, collared, and trapped in her human form, Brooke escapes, but at what cost?

When she and her sister are kidnapped and collared, Brooke is the only one who escapes. Dropped into the Canadian wilderness with a dangerous shifter on her tail, there is no way for her to save her sister. The only one who can help her is a reclusive man she comes across in the middle of nowhere, a loner who doesn’t speak.

Grizzly shifter Kane hasn’t socialized with another human in years, and he likes it that way. Being on his own has kept people safe from him, but now that an intriguing woman has intruded on his self-exile, he struggles to control his more primal emotions. And when Brooke goes into heat, stranded in his remote cabin is the last place she should be.

With danger sniffing at their heels, will Brooke and Kane’s forced proximity be their salvation, or prove fatal to them both?




“This is fine romance cum suspense novel that immediately establishes J.E. McDonald as an author of importance. The Wickwood Chronicles merit a following, as GHOST OF A GAMBLE suggests. Very impressive debut novel!”,

Grady Harp, Top Shelf Magazine

“The first in McDonald’s Wickwood Chronicles proves to be an enjoyable start to a brand-new paranormal romance series. With realism, humor, and even a bit of suspense, readers will enjoy,”

 – Alicia Smock, Roll Out The Reviews


J.E. McDonald was born and raised in Saskatchewan, Canada, The Land of the Living Skies. As a child, she was either searching the clouds for identifiable shapes, or star-gazing way past her bedtime. She cut her teeth watching Star Trek, James Bond movies, and reading the Harlequin novels her mother left in the bathroom—which resulted in an extremely skewed sense of sex education by age eleven. All of these factors contribute to her love of writing rom coms with a paranormal twist, romantic suspense, and far-future romance.

J.E. resides in Saskatchewan with her husband and three daughters, a stay at home mom by day, and an obsessed writer by night.   More information about J.E. McDonald can be found at: The Wickwood Chronicles Series Books | J.E. McDonald Author (
