Sheriff's Deputy Zak is one of the few black bear shifters in a colony of grizzlies. He's used to taking guff from his comrades, but it's all in good fun. He's fought beside these guys for many years and it's time they all stopped roaming and picked a place to settle. Grizzly Cove seemed as good a place as any when the idea was proposed, and Zak likes the slow-moving police work in the sleepy coastal town.
When his job takes him into closer proximity to the lovely Tina, though, he finds he can't resist her. Could it be he's finally found his mate? And when danger arrives at her door, will she turn to him, or run into the night? Zak will do all he can to make sure she chooses him.
