Lion shifter Diesel Cowan thought the worst thing he’d ever dealt with was the fall from a tree that gave him a very noticeable limp. But that terrible day has nothing on being rejected by the female the pride match-maker chose for him. Devastated, Diesel wonders if he’ll be alone forever.
The most exciting thing to have ever happened to Emberly Greer was when the TV weatherman ordered a latte from her parents’ coffee shop. When her friend Chloe’s bachelorette party ends up at a shifter bar, Em feels like she was destined to be there.
It doesn’t take long for Diesel to realize his heart-match is in the shifter bar where he works. Finding Emberly is the easy part, but revealing his flawed leg fills him with dread. If he can’t convince his beautiful mate that he’s worth loving, he doesn’t know what he’ll do. To complicate matters, the female who previously rejected him has had a change of heart, demanding the alpha enforce the mating contract. Can Diesel keep Emberly by his side forever?
