Dakota Wolves


Book 1 in the Dakota Wolves Series

The Dakota pack has lived secretly in a town in the Great Smoky Mountains for years. Marala Dakota ran away from the safety of this world as a heartbroken, pregnant teenager. She’s made a life for herself and her son without having anything to do with the wolves.

Seventeen years have passed since that fateful decision. She’s struggling with two jobs and trying to keep the wolf within her at bay as its longing for escape intensifies.

A handsome man named Taylor comes into her life at exactly the wrong time.

Then, her son’s father and leader of the Dakota pack, Kaden, shows up unexpectedly. Old wounds are torn open anew and events are set in motion that will change all of their lives forever.

Brynnara Hanson is a young lycan on the verge of her transition to wolf. She’s the first female to come of age within the Dakota pack in years. Her role in the continuation of the pack is paramount. Falling in love with a human is not allowed.

Taylor Andin has had nothing but bad luck since finding the hidden town of Dakota. When he saves a girl named Brynn from a group of thugs, he begins to fall for her. He’s a man accustomed to getting what he desires, but he quickly learns, he can’t always have what he wants when wolves stand in his way.




Book 3 in the Dakota Wolves Series

Coming of age is a difficult transition for every young man. Add to it the pressure of shifting into a wolf for the first time and having the pack leader as a father, and you have a recipe for a full on meltdown.

Jak Dakota is struggling with these changes when he meets a strange and beautiful shifter in the forest. Trouble is… she’s a panther.

Falling for this girl is against tradition. A union could tear apart the pack and his family. Her life could be in danger because of his selfish desires.

They’ll both have to decide if their friendship is worth the risk and if their hearts want something more.

      Thank you so much for the nice comment! I’m glad you enjoyed the series. 🙂 I have a few ideas for the next book, but not sure when/if it will come to life. Currently, I’m working on a sequel to my book Vampire Takeover, so that will take me a bit!

    • Jez Strider says:

      Thank you for taking the time to let me know! I love to hear this. 😀

      • Brenda says:

        No Prob. Im just waiting for more to come out. I also wanted to know how you got your start as an author. I write but short stories that I want to put into a book.

      • Jez Strider says:

        I’m not sure on a time for more in the series, but I plan on a prequel and at least two more books at some point.

        As for my start, I just sat down one day and decided to get one of the stories in my head down. I self-published it on Amazon in 2012, and just kept writing like crazy. Once I got started, the words just flowed. You could always bundle a group of stories together to publish. One of my favorite authors, Edgar Allan Poe, was a short story writer.

    • Jez Strider says:
