Braden Fields knew his assignment was only temporary. He had no intentions of remaining in the human town of Cloud Lake for a long period of time. Once he’d had his share of adventure and exploring he intended to go right back to Cadia, where he could live among his fellow bear shifters. Now that he’s found his mate in a human woman, nothing has changed. All he needs to do is convince her that she’s meant to be with him, and then they can go start their life in Cadia together. It was supposed to be easy.
Elle Mirrine didn’t expect to fall for him. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what she did when her skates hit a rough patch of ice, depositing her flat on her back in front of him. But the tall, charismatic shifter saved her in the nick of time, much to the delight of her friends. The chance meeting with the hazel-eyed hunky shifter wasn’t something she expected, but it quickly morphed into something serious.
The rapid development of feelings between them has overshadowed some other problems. While Braden may look human, Elle has a hard time remembering that he isn’t. He’s from a different world, one whose ideas may not be compatible with her way of thinking. While the two of them try to come to terms with their differences, a dangerous figure that has been lurking in the darkness finally comes forward, presenting a danger to Braden and Elle, and everyone they hold dear.
If Braden is going to save the day and the girl, he’s going to have to face some hard truths, and make some difficult decisions. But when it comes to his mate, he won’t let anyone get in his way. He hopes someone will have mercy on their souls.
