"There's something so innocent yet carnal about their relationship that it's touching on an elemental level – and it's obvious that the men feel just as strongly for Janie as she does them."

The cold wind blew fiercely through her hair, whipping it around her face. As the icy air attacked her skin and caused a chill down her spine, Janie hugged her coat tightly around her. The sun, though bright in the sky, gave no warmth to soothe her trepidation. Winter had arrived in full force and was determined to make things difficult for her.
"Was this a mistake?" she murmured to herself. She could be home, enjoying eggnog and wrapping presents. Instead, she stood in the middle of nowhere.
Since she'd left the gravel road, only snow and wilderness had filled her vision. Trees stood before her and a clearing behind.
Movement in the sky made her look up. She froze in awe. Santa Claus? She blinked and the image disappeared. What was happening to her? Was this a dream?
A distant noise caught her attention, and she turned swiftly. A massive black wolf ran across the snow toward her. Two large white wolves, almost lost in the snow's glare, followed closely behind. Their barks filled her ears.
Her heart skipped a beat, but she wasn't afraid. Far from it. She raced toward them -- eager, needy. All her doubts disappeared. She jumped a fallen tree branch and shifted into a majestic brown wolf, landing on all four paws as if she'd done it a thousand times. Without breaking stride, she continued running across the snow. Strength and freedom coursed through her. No longer did she feel cold, only invigorated. She loved the power her new form gave her. She greeted the three male wolves with enthusiasm. Her tongue lolled out of her mouth as she rolled submissively onto her back.
Their barks turned to excited yips. Each male nuzzled her in turn. Once they'd sniffed each other in greeting, they excitedly joined together as one pack and continued running.
A herd of reindeer scattered across their path, and she marveled at the sight. Okay, maybe they were caribou or even just forest deer. But given the holiday, she chose to believe in the fantastic and Christmas miracles. She followed the males across the snow-covered hills to a cave in a distant mountain.
They all collapsed on a pile of pallets. One by one, they shifted back into human form, breathing heavily. The exhilaration surrounding them had turned palpable and grown stronger with each mile they'd run. After shifting, the feeling hadn't dissipated.
"I feared I wouldn't find you. That was incredible." She looked down at herself, amazed at her seemingly effortless ability to become a wild creature just by wishing it so. "I'm naked." Her gaze drifted to the men. "We're all naked."
"Shifting does that," the formerly black wolf stated. The alpha. Their leader. "We'll retrieve your clothes later. We're glad you're home, Janie."
She rubbed her arms. "I'm cold."
"We'll take care of that too." He reached out and gently stroked her cheek. "So soft. Just as I remember. We've missed you." He leaned forward and kissed her on the lips.
The other two men caressed her back and legs. She welcomed their touch. The feel of their hands warmed her immediately and caused a sexual need deep inside. A need no wholly human male could satisfy, only them...
