Shane West was used to being the only wolf shifter at the Stockton Police Department. His enhanced senses helped him do his job efficiently and he prided himself on keeping control of his animal instincts. Gay from the first day he’d shifted, he also expected to live his long life alone, and provided it meant that he didn’t have to come into contact with any of his ex-pack, he told himself he was happy. And he was. Until Dimitri Polst was assigned as his new partner.
Confirmed ladies man, Dimitri Polst knew Shane from before he’d ever shifted into his wolf form. Two years older and from the same pack, Dimitri had made it his teenage mission to bring as much pain and humiliation to pretty-boy Shane as possible. But years later, he searched for that pretty boy, now all grown up, with a completely different mission in mind.
Being fated mates was hard enough, but when one man is straight and the other one has no reason to trust, then sparks are bound to fly. Add in a serial killer who is making inroads into the gay population and a possible shifter involvement, and Shane and Dimitri have a lot of thing to overcome before they get their HEA.
We are here today to talk about Get off My Case. What can you tell us about it?
Hello and thank you for hosting me here today. GOMC was originally supposed to be a short story for last years MMRomance Goodreads challenge. I had never written a short story before, and got really engrossed in my characters, and after some extensive additions the book was born.
The prompt I got for the story wanted a gay-for-you and as I adore my wolf shifters I wanted to explore what would happen if a previously straight shifter learned that his mate was gay. Dimitri (the straight one) runs when he originally finds out who Shane is to him but the Fates have a way of getting true mates together. I also wanted to explore the concept of bullying in the book – how would you feel if you were confronted by your bully years later.
Tell us more about Shane and Dimitri?
As mentioned above Dimitri considers himself straight, but he knows about Shane. Dimitri is an okay guy, a bit clueless and stubborn when he wants to be. There were a couple of times I really wanted to hit him around the head. Shane is awesome. Lives as an openly gay man even though he is a police detective, he really cares about his work and the people around him. But he works in a human world which is really difficult for him – having to hide his furry self.
What about In the Get off My Case makes you the proudest?
I like to think I struck the balance right – especially in dealing with the fact that Dimitri had been such a bully to Shane at school. I also think I got Dimitri’s reluctance to be labelled gay worked out as well. I hate labels of any kind, but they are a part of society and Dimitri had to understand that. Finally I liked the idea that although they were fated mates, Shane didn’t just give in to Dimitri, or trust him right away.
What is next for the Stockton wolves?
Yes, well that is a leading question. Remember the book was meant to be a short story, then it was a book and now it is a series. Originally I was just going to have Shane and Dimitri on their own, as a pair of wolf shifters in a human police force. Then Kalel came along, and then Dimitri’s brother, and Ben and when Sin got into the mix, well, I had a pack. The next book runs with another serial killer, but the focus of the story will be on Ben and Sin and a delicious bear shifter. Copping a Lot of Sin (book 2) will be out later this year.
You walk into a bar and find one of your characters sitting there. Who is the character and what drink do you buy him?
If Shane and Dimitri were in the bar we would all be drinking beer – except me, because beer makes my knees turn to jelly. I prefer Kahlua.
If you could have a conversation with any famous author, who would you want to get writing tips from and what skill of theirs would you like to emulate?
I would definitely be looking for tips on how to write better sex scenes and if I had the opportunity to talk to any of my favorite (as opposed to famous) authors then I would be talking to Stormy Glenn and Sandrine Gasq Dion. For ideas on variety and sex tips I would talk to Sean Michael. His books have given me more than a few good ideas over the past two years.
What are you reading right now and what is next on your to-be-read list?
At the moment I am reading Andrew Grey’s Bronco’s Boys series. I had read book one ages ago, saw that he had a book 3 and read that, and then realized I had missed book 2. So I went back to the beginning and have just started book 2 – Upside Down.

Fae for All, Book 6 of the Cloverleah Pack has just come out, and I am now working on Book 5 of the Bound and Bonded series (No Mate of Mine) which will be out in the next month if not sooner, and Copping a Lot of Sin (book 2 Stockton Wolves). I am also writing a story about a grey-sexual wolf for this years MMRomance Goodreads challenge which resulted in some interesting research and I have another idea for an Alpha and Omega book – so there is plenty to keep me busy.
By the time Dimitri had got to the back door of the club he knew his wolf was close to the surface. He could feel his eyes changing and the hair on his arms start to tingle. It was only through sheer force of will that he stopped the change completely. Must not shift in front of humans, he tried to remind himself as he searched the dark alley, sniffing for his mate’s unique scent. There, deep in the shadows. The young blond was wrapped around Shane’s waist and neck like he belonged there.
Growling loudly Dimitri strode over to where the two men were hidden, his hands changing into claws as he itched to grab the little interloper and tear his body to inch sized bloody pieces. He couldn’t and wouldn’t hurt his mate, but he could and definitely would shred the little blond until he wasn’t a threat to Dimitri’s mating again.
“Dimitri, stop damn it!” Shane called out in a low voice as he carefully wound the young blond’s arms from his neck. “This is not what you think.”
Dimitri stopped himself, just, and watched as Shane spoke in a low voice in CJ’s ear and then gave him some money. CJ looked up at Dimitri and scowled at him and then took off back into the club. Shane flung out his arm and grabbed Dimitri by his belt loops and smashed him into the same wall he had been leaning on while he was entangled in his blond. But Shane’s eyes weren’t full of passion, Dimitri noticed. His mate was pissed off with him, big time.
“You just cost me some valuable information, fuck wit. Now what the hell did you think you were doing?” Shane snarled at him in a low voice.
“Is that how you get all of your information, detective,” Dimitri snarled right back. “By giving sexual favors to your tipsters?” Fuck, with Shane so close Dimitri could barely breathe. His cock was so hard in his jeans that it hurt and he couldn’t break his stare with his mate. Man, this guy was awesome when he was angry.
Shane tipped his head to the side and then took in a deep breath, obviously smelling Dimitri’s arousal. For a moment he looked confused, but that expression was gone in an instant and Shane’s angry gaze was back again. He leaned in flush against Dimitri’s body and growled softly in his ear, “CJ is an informant of mine. He’s been beaten before for talking to the wrong people and I don’t want to see my friend in hospital. We act like a hookup so he will be safe, asshole. So don’t go judging what you don’t understand.”
“But you’ve fucked him, right?” Dimitri regretted the words the instant they came out of his mouth as he watched a flash of pure murderous intent race across his mate’s hard face.
“Not that it’s any of your business, fuckwit, but I have never done anything sexually with CJ or any of my informants. Unlike you, I have standards.” Dimitri knew Shane was referring to the fact that when Dimitri was still in school he used to fuck anything in a skirt regardless of who it was. With his jock reputation and good looks he never lacked for girls willing to lift those skirts and give him what he wanted.
But right now Dimitri didn’t care that Shane was angry with him, or that he might have fucked up an investigation. Shane was leaning on him, chest to chest, but had kept his groin area away from Dimitri. And Dimitri was so turned on he couldn’t think. He needed friction on his cock and he needed it now. He reached out and grabbed Shane by his hips and pulled the man’s groin into his. Both men groaned as their dual erections nudged each other and Dimitri rocked into Shane looking for more.
“What the fuck do you think you are doing?” Shane snarled. Dimitri could see Shane’s eyes were blown with lust and the man was panting softly. Against his cock, Shane’s sizable erection nudged his and for the first time in his life Dimitri wanted to see another man’s cock. But not just any cock – Shane’s.
“I haven’t got a clue,” Dimitri said honestly, his own deep voice raspy with lust, “But I know I like it.”
