The Sumage Solution

Book 1 in  Series

Max needs 3 things – magic, a boyfriend, and a wolf.

What he finds is one werewolf who just might be his everything.


Max fails at magic, relationships, and life. So he works as a sumage, cleaning up other mages’ messes. The job sucks and he’s in no mood to cope with redneck werewolves. Unfortunately, there’s something irresistible about the sexy muscled Beta visiting his office.


Bryan is Beta to a new pack in a new city. He’s also gay and closeted. There’s a good chance Max might be reason enough to leave come out, if he can only get the man to go on a date.

Everyone knows werewolves hate mages.

Bryan is determined to prove everyone wrong, even the mage himself.

In this charming offbeat gay romance from the comedic mind of New York Times best selling author Gail Carriger (writing as G.L. Carriger) a sexy werewolf with a white knight complex meets a bad boy mage with an attitude problem. Sparks (and other things) fly.

The San Andreas Shifter books stand alone and do not have to be read in any order but this one comes after Marine Biology and before The Omega Objection.

Delicate Sensibilities?

This story contains M/M sexitimes and horrible puns. If you get offended easily, then you probably will. The San Andreas Shifter stories include blue language, dirty deeds, and outright admiration for the San Francisco Bay Area. Not for the faint of heart or mouth or tongue.

Accolades & Praise

The Sumage Solution made the short list for the ALA’s 2018 RUSA Book & Media Awards Reading List in Romance.

It was a #1 Bestseller for Borderlands Books, July 2017.

“If you like a good shifter story, this is the book for you. If you like witty banter and shenanigans, this is the book for you. If you like a story with depth and angst and romance, this is the book for you. Hell, if you like to read, this is the book for you.”

~ Boy Meets Boy Reviews

“And, while after years of reading shifter fantasy my fear is always that a storyline and its setting will feel stale and uninspired, Carriger manages to keep things fresh and progressive in not only the contemporary urban landscape but in the diversity, humor and warmth she uses to complement some of the weightier elements of Max and Biff’s story.”

The Novel Approach

“I don’t want to reveal too much of the plot, because it’s fantastic and so very different, but I want to mention that it’s got the same fast-paced, witty movement as all the other books I’ve read by the author. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough.”
