May Jensen has had a rough few months. While protecting her friend Iris from an attack by cougar shifters, she suffered a tremendous head injury that would have killed a human. Plagued by headaches and memory difficulties ever since, the petite wolf shifter can no longer work as a police officer. Left adrift without the job she loves, May struggles to heal and find her new place in the world. She returns to painting, which she has loved since childhood. Unfortunately, she has the eerie habit of unconsciously predicting the future through her art. Not helping matters is that someone seems to be out to get her. Who wants to hurt her and why?
Grizzly shifter Beau Shanley has been infatuated with May ever since the night he helped fight off the cougars who ambushed her. As the daughter of the former alpha wolf and sister of the current one, Beau believes May is destined for a bright future, one that doesn’t include a man who is barely able to keep his beast under control. When he learns of the threats against her, however, he can’t just stand by and watch. Both he and his inner animal are compelled to protect her.
As the two work together to keep May safe, the attempts on her life intensify and an innocent bystander is harmed. Is someone out for revenge, or is this part of a larger plan against the shifters of Grey Lake?

Acclaimed author Brian Malloy brings insight, humor, and the authenticity of his own experiences as a member of the AIDS generation to this universal story of love and loss set in New York City and Minneapolis at the peak of the AIDS crisis. Published on the 40th anniversary of the disease's first reported cases, After Francesco is both a tribute to a generation lost to the pandemic as well as a powerful exploration of heartbreak, recovery and how love can defy grief.
The year is 1988 and 28-year-old Kevin Doyle is bone-tired of attending funerals. It's been two years since his partner Francesco died from AIDS, an epidemic ravaging New York City and going largely ignored by a government that expects those affected to suffer in silence, thrusting unjustifiable shame and guilt on top of their loss.
Some people might insist that Francesco and the other friends he's lost to the disease are in a better place now, but Kevin definitely isn't. Half-alive, he spends his days in a mind-numbing job and nights with the ghost of Francesco, drunk and full of memories of the life of a man who was too young to die.
When Kevin hits an all-time low, he realizes it's time to move back home to Minnesota and figure out how to start living again--without Francesco. With the help of a surviving partners support group and old and new friends, Kevin slowly starts to do just that. But an unthinkable family betrayal, and the news that his best friend is fighting for his life in New York, will force a reckoning and a defining choice.
