"This single father gig isn't so hard. Not hard at all. I'm not sure what all the fuss is about, really. It's been a breeze Or so I thought." When Alpha Locke Winfield's pack decided it was time for him to step up and take care of his own child for once, his whole life turned upside down. Too busy for tea parties and ballet recitals, he hadn't realized his daughter, Sara, was no longer a little girl. And preteens, he was learning, were a whole other breed. Locke needed a woman. One who could do more than take care of his daughter. He couldn't remember the last time a woman had taken care of him. Which was why he joined the online dating site, Alpha Singles. Sara needed a mother. And Locke needed a mate. ASAP. There were thousands of women out there. Surely he could find one who was willing to take on a workaholic Alpha Wolf and his moody preteen daughter.
