The Kennel Klub takes pride in matching dominant shifters with the perfect mate. Theo Brundy is looking for just that: someone to pleasure, to love, to take care of. Having lived most of his life forced into his were form by the cruel man who killed his parents, Theo uses his human form as a shield, both physically and emotionally. No one can hurt him if he’s human.
Drew hasn’t shifted in more than a year. After spending his life serving a cruel alpha, he was cast aside when the alpha married another. Drew has found that it’s easier to protect himself if he’s a wolf. A sub at heart, Drew is both apprehensive and desirous of the idea of losing control.
Can these two men find what they need in each other, both in bed and out of it?

“Are you sure he…” The little man—no, kitty. Definitely feline. Not human—sounded worried, scents of concern and disapproval strong.
The alpha’s fingers were hard, clenching his ruff, shaking him. “He’s a good pup. He’ll do what he’s told, when he’s told.”
Drew was good. Good and bad, all at the same time. The alpha had a female now, was having babies and no one needed a beta male about, especially not one who had been the alpha’s boy for so long.
“We need him to be willing. This is a commitment.”
The shake came again and he bit back his whimper as it pulled hard on his fur. “Tell him you’re willing, pup. Bark for me.”
He barked, the sound sad and low.
“See? Do you have a cage for him?”
He was going to be caged?
Drew crouched down, shivering hard. So many smells here, so strange. So bad. If he’d never been a man, he wouldn’t be here. Someone would have simply run him off, chased him away.
“I’d prefer a verbal confirmation.” The kitty man pursed his lips at Drew’s alpha.
“You won’t get one. He’s not allowed to change in my presence. If you don’t want him, I’ll just take him to the shelter.”
The kitty’s eyes went wide and then pure energy flashed in them, hard and furious. “You will not. This is not a pet and you’re no one’s master. Get the fuck out of my establishment.” And with that, the man knelt down, speaking only to him.
“Hey, honey. I’m Kyle. No cages, I promise, but lovely rooms and good food. Come with me. I swear, I will protect you.”
His alpha growled, but Kyle didn’t even flinch. A hand was waved. “I said get out. I’ll be calling security in five seconds.”
The door slammed loudly.
His ruff was touched, so gently. “I’m sorry that son of a bitch was a worthless asshole, honey, but I promise, I swear, we will find a good life for you.”
He whined, sad and lost and scared, and Kyle plopped right onto the floor, arms open. “Come on, I give amazing hugs and then I’ll show you your new home. It’ll be yours for as long as you want it.”
For the longest time he just stood there, and Kyle waited, arms open for him. “Come on. The first step is the hardest, but my hugs are worth it.”
Drew considered it. His heart was broken. His pack was gone. His soul was torn in half and he didn’t think the shame would ever go away.
If any pup ever needed a friend in a new place, it was him.
He pushed into Kyle’s arms and howled, crying for all he’d lost.
