This was a DNF at 19%. I had no idea what was going on and I found myself not caring, so I quit. The heroine is a human in a shifter town. She was hired to be the assistant to the "mayor" of the town. He is actually the hero and the alpha. At the start of the book, they've already hooked up and admit they're mates, but they can't be together publicly for reasons that the hero can't explain. To anyone, except to say the other shifters wouldn't accept a human. He sounded like a great alpha. :- At the point I quit reading, it seemed the town's previous alpha had been resurrected as a zombie. I just couldn't go any further.
