Wolves of the South is a series I wrote in 2021 (started in March 2021), and it just kept growing. New characters were raising their hands, wanting their adventure to be told.
Wolves of the South takes place in the South of the United States, mostly North Carolina. It begins with the adventures of the siblings of the displaced McMullen family, Ben, Liz and Nessa. And then it widens up with Connor, a member of Nick’s pack, and Olivier, the father of Connor’s new mate. Finally, even Val McMullen, the mother of Ben, Nessa and Liz, decided to tell her story.
If you love wolves and wolf shifters but are not a fan of steamy naughty scenes or that tacky alpha nonsense, these stories are for you.
I have started to write two more books, one of them is now out (A Wolf’s Christmas), but it’ll be a while before I can finish the second one. However, I can also give you an awesome review of the series as it stood at the time. (Books 1-6):
Book series review: Wolves of the South, by Hannah Steenbock by Michael Kjörling
Let me give you the Wolves of the South

Little does he know that his father has sent them to his old haunts.
Silvia plans to reconnect with her estranged grandfather during college break. When she gives a lift to Ben after he saved her from an attack, she has no idea that’s she’s taking him directly into mortal danger.
Deadly old family feuds erupt anew, and Silvia and Ben must cooperate despite what happened, before hate and delusion doom both of them.
Can Ben escape that Hunter family? Can Sylvia handle the dire truth?
What people say:
A wolf shifter tale full of fast paced adventure that I thoroughly enjoyed.
And before you ask! Yes! It’s a shifter book. And NO! It doesn’t have any steamy scenes.
This one’s a fast paced fantasy adventure/romance in which the camera pans away from the bedroom and the focus is set on adventure. It’s the start of a clean wolf-shifter family saga that distinguishes itself from other books in the genre through the clean romance and the lack of an alpha-wolf trope. – Goodreads Review

A Wolf’s Hacker
Yes, another books is coming. I just started writing it, and it’ll involve a character from Val’s and Dan’s story – continuing the adventure and romance. No cover yet (I hope I can entice the cover designer to work for me once more), but I’m having great fun with “Joker” and “Shadow”. Also sharing snippets in my FB fan group.
Wolves of the South Specials
For Thanksgiving, I wrote a little short story called “Turkey Time”. It does contain some spoilers, so wait to read it until you’re done with Book 5 (“A Wolf’s Fight”).
