Rafe (Shifter World: Royals and Alphas, book 1) by Dana Archer
Sometimes the greatest finds are unexpected. After five centuries, Rafe Alexander knows what to expect from life—boredom, broken by the occasional call from Shifter Affairs. No matter what the job, he always accepts their plea for help. As a Royal shifter, he’s the strongest of their kind. And without a mate, he has nothing to live for. Whatever the risk, he’ll take it. But the task that leads him to West Virginia changes everything. A father is dead. A shifter child is missing. And the human female connected to both tragedies is hiding a secret. Rafe must figure out what she knows, but his interest in Jasmine goes far beyond the case. She’s his true mate. And she doesn’t trust him. He can’t blame her. Loving him is more dangerous than the killer targeting her family. The only difference is that Rafe won’t ever let her escape. Nobody keeps a shifter from his mate. Royals and Alphas are the tamer versions of the Royal-Kagan books by Nancy Corrigan. Enjoy getting lost in the Shifter World without explicit love scenes or harsh language.
