Surrender the Chase by Mia West
After grumpy, middle-aged wolf shifter Dmitri collides with hockey star and wolf shifter Thierry in a local match, the intimidating pup is bent on exposing Dmitri’s underbelly… and everything else that’s gone soft. + A grumpy lone wolf shifter and a hot younger pup in need of a firm hand. Yeah, this won’t get complicated. For wolf shifter Dmitri Sernov, life bites. His late-night hunts leave him winded, the twelfth rewrite of his novel is crap, and his last good lay was five drafts ago. He’s staring down forty with a creative well as empty as his bed. The last thing he needs is a beautiful, intimidating, obnoxious pup bent on exposing Dmitri’s underbelly… …and everything else that’s gone soft. + Thierry Marrou has burned every bridge from Montréal to Juneau. Once a prospect for Canada’s Olympic hockey team, he’s just been kicked off a piddling local squad in Nowhere, Alaska. But one whiff of the silver wolf on the opposing bench was enough to confirm that the dreams drawing Thierry across a continent have a very real source. Now all he has to do is convince Dmitri Sernov to be his top dog. Très simple, non? <+ SURRENDER THE CHASE is the 2nd standalone novel in the GRIZZLY RIM m/m shifter series. Lace up for pheromone-charged hockey, dirty French lessons, a grumpy hero who thinks he’s past his prime, and a pushy young hothead determined to prove him wrong. Tropes: age gap (39/27), grumpy vs playful, fated mates, forced proximity Content Notes: This story depicts sports violence (hockey), and unreliable parents. GRIZZLY RIM Series The men of Grizzly Rim are a lot of things. Always human isn’t one of them. Originally published in 2015 as a novella, this novel edition of SURRENDER THE CHASE was extensively revised and expanded for republication in 2019.
