Team South-One Bear shifter Brent Casey has a secret. He’s not the calm, easy going guy everyone thinks he is. Even his team aren’t aware of the battle he fights daily to stay in control. Underneath his skin lives his beast. Sounds like every normal, regular shifter, right? Only his bear is broken, ready to erupt at the slightest loss of control. The quiet, regulated life of the shifter town of Heartsridge is the only thing keeping him sane.
But someone is threatening the town, trying to destroy it. Spies hide in the shadows and it’s his job to track them down. Enter his brother, Michael, unofficial leader of the rogues and the last person he ever wanted to see again. They have to work together, and it’s taking everything Brent’s got not to blow a fuse. Throw in a strange woman, with fiery hair and soulful gray eyes that he can’t forget, and he’s near breaking point. He has a town to protect, yet he can’t stop thinking about the fragile human. She doesn’t smell like his fated mate, so who is she to him, and why does he care?
Doctor Emma Kew’s luck is running out. The medical specialists have informed her that they’ve done everything they can, and that all she has left to look forward to is a miracle. Focused and armed with a streak of stubbornness a mile wide, she goes to Heartsridge to find a solution. To find a shifter, actually. The original plan was that any shifter would do, but when a large, scowling man nearly mows her down in the street, she makes a snap decision. She wants him. The man with the tortured eyes that see straight into her soul. He’s the one who’ll save her.
But when the threat to the town escalates and Brent’s world starts falling apart, will Emma find a place by his side? She might be the one to give him everything he’s ever wanted. She might also be the one to finally destroy him.
Fate can be cruel and control sometimes nothing but an illusion. Decisions have consequences and repercussions. Is Brent ready to face the truth and do what needs to be done?
Sexy shifters and their feisty mates who aren’t shy about loving each other – so, this is an adult, 18+ reader tale.
