A lone shifter who has lost his family and a fun-loving scientist who is desperate to escape the monotonous lifestyle she once wanted equals one exciting tale of finding romance in unexpected places.
Aspen Valley has always been home to Jacques Kent, wolf shifter and MMA fighter. Leaving now in the midst of the loss of the woman who raised him after he was abandoned would mean turning his back on his birth Pack. Although he’s an Omega, he hasn’t pledged to serve in quite some time. Without the support of the Alpha, the Pack, and no blood relatives anywhere in sight, he has nothing else to lose. Just when he thinks his string of bad luck has ended and he can finally move on with his life, he’s accused of a crime unworthy of any Aspen Valley Pack member. He’s about to throw in the towel, but then fate reveals his mate.
After a nasty split with her ex, Natasha Bennett starts her life over in a new town. Her ego is bruised and she’s down on her luck, but she promises herself that she won’t let this setback define her. Her determination to get back on her feet becomes the motivation that drives her forward and keeps her from drowning in disappointment. But then she meets Jacques, the sexy, brooding shifter that swears from the beginning that he’s less than perfect and not the best role model or Aspen Valley citizen. His honesty along with his savage and imperfect nature sparks her curiosity. It only takes one moment in his arms and Natasha knows she wants to remain there forever.
The chemistry between them rises to steamy levels, but is the promise of a lifelong mate strong enough to unmask the true desires of a wolf?
