About A Shifter’s Claim:
A shifter without a mate is a shifter without a mind.
It’s been five years since Shilo’s mate walked out on her and she’s been just a little, tiny bit unstable, a feeling that isn’t helped by the impending fight with a neighboring colony. She might not be all there, but even a crazed shifter knows waking up in a stranger’s bed hours from home to find the contacts from her pack murdered means she’s in trouble.
Aimless and restless and unconcerned with anything beyond his next one-night stand, Waylon agrees to act as bodyguard for some shifter pack liaison embroiled in a power struggle. What could it hurt? He’s been aching for five years, and maybe this assignment will take his mind off all he’s lost. But when he meets his client, his world stops. It’s her. His mate. The one he left.
Thanks to their history, he can’t just walk away and leave her as a target. Thanks to her instability, she can’t go home without backup. If either wants to survive the bloody present, both will have to set aside their heartbreaking past and fight for their uncertain future.

“We never mated, you coward.”
Waylon’s head started to pound. He should’ve eaten something before he’d left. And her scent. It was different. Not like before, but if he sifted through the lingering death attached to her, he could smell—his fangs throbbed.
“Ugh.” Shilo spat on the floor, though the move was only for show. She probably considered herself too classy to spit for real. “You smell like cheap sex. Get out of here. You’re an insult.”
Armana’s back hit her chair, her gaze wary. Gray hugged the wall.
His anger rose hot and swift. He smelled like sex? “As opposed to the expensive kind you just had?”
A quick flash of regret filled her expression and she switched her attention to Armana. “I’m sorry. I can’t work with him.”
“Ditto,” he said from between clenched teeth.
Armana glanced between them, then at Gray. She nodded and rose. “Okay. I can see there is bad blood between you two. We’ll accompany you back—”
Gray was shaking his head. “We’re both already tasked with security detail. But I’m sure the Guardians can put Ms. Ironhorse up for another night while we find someone else.”
He should leave. Storm right out. Let someone else worry about her privileged behind.
But his stubborn feet wouldn’t move. “Who do you need to be protected from?” He managed to say the words with a sneer.
“It quit being your business when you left,” she shot back.
“Waylon, you may go,” Armana said firmly. “We’ll compensate you for your time.”
“No. You hired me.” What was he saying? “Christian already gave me the time off.”
Shilo crossed her arms. Unfortunately, it drew his attention to her breasts. He’d never seen a pair that measured up to hers. “No.”
“I don’t know if that’s a good idea, Waylon,” Armana said.
He straightened, wishing for the first time he’d done something other than roll away from a blow job and come straight here. “I can be professional.” He cocked a brow. Would Shilo rise to the bait?
Shilo tipped her head. “Since when?”
“Princess, you know I won’t let anyone hurt you.”
She scowled at the pet name. Her family wasn’t rich, but they’d pampered her, and everyone in the colony knew it—but not like he knew it.
