Beauty and the Werewolf by Kristin MillerSan Francisco Wolf Pack, #2
Unmated werewolves don't normally live past three hundred years old...and billionaire Jack MacGrath is cutting it close.

Isabelle Connelly is good at hiding things from her father. Like her success as a painter, or the incredibly intense attraction she has to Jack MacGrath. After all, she's royalty and falling for anyone lesser-to say nothing of a rival pack-would be, er, unseemly. Now she must choose between her duty to her family and her pack...or her perfect fated mate.
