Woodland Creek Series.
30 Authors. 30 Shifter Stories.

Anastasiya Petrov ran from her fate. The youngest of seven sisters and promised to one of the Princes of a rival pack, she refuses to be a bargaining chip. Instead, she flees to a remote area in the United States, changes her name to Tasia Connor, and settles into her new life.

Alex Chilikov might be an Estonian prince, but he was raised in the United States and loves it here, especially Woodland Creek, Indiana, where he’s followed close behind his bride-to-be. She might be able to hide who she is from the others, but he’d recognize her scent anywhere, and he plans to use his trickster abilities to help him obtain what he wants. He wants out from under his own father’s heavy thumb.

However, he’s not the only one searching for her. Her father has made some dangerous enemies, and though she continues to attempt to escape Alex’s protection, he’ll fight to keep her safe. Tasia will risk almost anything to keep her freedom, but only if she can resist a Wicked Jackal.

Wicked Jackal is one of the installments in the Woodland Creek series, a collaboration of 30 authors, who each wrote a shifter story. I particularly enjoyed this novella. It has some hot and steamy scenes, but it also offers an intereresting story and intriguing protagonists.

After running away from her fate of getting married off to a Prince of a rival pack, Anastasiya changes her name to Tasia and settles into a new life at Woodland Creek, Indiana. What she doesn’t know however is that her supposed husband-to-be has followed her there. Unfortunately Alex isn’t the only one who is searching for her. Her father made a lot of enemies, and Alex is determined to keep Tasia safe, which becomes very complicated as Tasia values her freedom above all… But can she keep on resisting him?

I loved both characters, and their chemistry was undeniable. The writing was great, and the story was fast-paced and engaging. Fans of shifter stories will love this.
