Professor. Single dad. His father’s former best friend…
There is no end to how off-limits Thatcher should be to Dylan. But Dylan is away from home for the first time. An artist at heart, he’s struggling at the normie law school where he’s desperately trying to stand in his father’s footsteps. He’s too gentle, too meek. The members of his family have become lawyers and protected Morningwood—the secretive shifter only community—for generations. Though Dylan is lonely, he can’t tell his dad about the new friend he’s found in Thatcher. His dad would only order Dylan to stay away, and Dylan can’t give Thatcher up. Not just yet.
Thatcher has his hands full as a newly single father. The single part isn’t new, but the father part is. Elijah was ten when services dropped him on Thatcher’s door and in the months since he’s scrambled to change his life from that of a bachelor to a responsible father. But he struggles to connect with his young son. The smartest thing he could do would be to put a stop to the feelings he has for Dylan. While Elijah loves spending time with him and when the three of them are together, it feels like they are a family, Dylan is a student. If the university doesn’t discover their relationship Dylan’s overbearing dad will. He never got over the way Thatcher left Morningwood over a decade ago and if he ever found out Thatcher was interested in his son, he’d go ballistic.
As their bond deepens and the end of term looms ahead, Dylan’s running out of time. The annual Morningwood 4th of July camp-out is on the horizon, yet another tradition Dylan has with his father and he realizes he will have to make a choice between his dad and the town he loves, or his mate and the family that accepts him just the way he is.
Red, White & Blew is the sixth book in the Welcome to Morningwood series, it features an age gap romance with student/teacher themes (that’s a lucky desk). But, it’s a Morningwood story, so there is no question about the HEA, or the steamy, funny bits in between!
An overweight omega puts his life in the hands of a battered and bruised alpha…
Captain Aries did not escape his last mission unscathed. His work with the Elite Force is always dangerous—it’s not easy protecting an entire town of trusting shifters from outside threats—but Aries blames himself for the danger he put his team in. To make certain that will never happen again, he decides to resign after one last mission: to protect a VIP named Arthur on his way to Morningwood. Aries failed as a Captain, he won’t fail as a bodyguard.
Arthur has lived his life alone and on the run. Hiding from his sadistic twin, Arthur keeps a low profile. Overweight and afraid, he cloaks himself in clothes and never engages with shifters, despite being one himself. His evil brother taught him that shifters only bring danger. But when a ruggedly handsome Captain from Morningwood shows up at his house to escort him to the shifter community, for the first time, Arthur wants to believe he could be safe.
Arthur isn’t just concerned with himself though. He has his adopted daughter, Harlow, to care for. At two, she should be years away from her first shift, which makes her ability to spontaneously turn into a tiny bunny strange. Not to mention the troubles it causes around bath time.
Aries is drawn to Arthur from the first moment, but who would want a battered alpha like him? He has no right to put a claim on Arthur. Aries knows the single father is perfect just the way he is and deserves perfection in return. But when a rival alpha approaches Arthur and offers him the safe life he craves, will Aries stand back and watch his future family be whisked away?
