Wolf shifter Rex Vanderbilt has lived a life of luxury and privilege. That changes one fateful night following an attack by hunters that nearly kills him and his family. They seek refuge and protection at the private paranormal sanctuary, Shadow Creek. Rex discovers how little he understands his wolf’s blood after the strangest out-of-body experience in the presence of one particular shifter.

Devon Michaels is a great horned owl shifter and part of the Creek’s top circle of guards. He prefers solitude after a betrayal that nearly cost him his life. When Rex arrives on the manor’s doorstep, he instantly recognizes the rowdy wolf as his mate. He has no interest in the irresponsible, spoiled man, but Rex has other plans to win Devon’s affections.

When the Creek’s borders are breached by hunters and Rex is injured, Devon must make a decision. With the promise of another attack looming, time is running out. Can he let go of the past to protect his mate?

Secrets in Shadows by Leah Blake is the first book in the Shadow Creek Series. I actually loved this introduction to a multi-shifter world. I liked that there are not just wolves in this book. I like meeting new to me shifters.
Rex is a wolf shifter. He has been sheltered all of his life. He was never taught what he is or how to shift. He was expected to be human. He excelled at that, that is till the hunters changed everything. Now he is in Shadow Creek. He is thrown into situations with shifters and flounders at how to be a shifter. To top it off he has a mate or someone who says he is his mate. This person really thinks Rex is beneath him. Rex does not even know how to be a shifter. How can he learn when no one gives him a chance not even his mate?
Devon well when I first met him I thought poor Rex really got screwed in the mating category. Devon is arrogant, mean, and judgmental. Lucky for Rex, that is to protect his once broken heart. Devon is really not all those things. That is the armor he wears to protect himself with. Once we get past the ego and find the real man underneath I really liked the owl shifter.
Over all really good book. I liked meeting some of the pack. I also liked the mix of paranormals in the pack. I am looking forward to more from this series. I would love to see who falls in love next.
