Deadlock by Moira Rogers
Carmen Mendoza’s shapeshifter father abandoned her. Raised by her psychic mother, Carmen ignored her paternal family’s political machinations–until the day they decided to use her in their bid for power. Trapped between two worlds and snared by a vicious spell meant to wake her inner wolf, Carmen’s only hope is to trust the one man strong enough to soothe her darkest instincts.
Born a pureblood wolf, Alec Jacobson lives as a rebel, the black sheep alpha who protects the supernatural residents of New Orleans from wolf politics. Too bad he can’t protect himself from his need for Carmen. Staking a claim on his enemy’s niece will turn his city into a battleground, unless he can find a way to stop breaking the rules–and start making them.
