Shana Dunn has been on the run for five long years trying to keep herself, and her son, safe. She moved to a small town named American Canyon, right outside Napa Valley, known for their great school system and low crime rate. She hopes that, by moving in, she doesn’t ruin the neighborhood. Shana is being stalked by her ex-boyfriend, who is currently in jail for stalking and rape charges. That didn’t prevent him from sending his jail mates to ‘warn’ her he was coming. The first thing she did when she hit town, was renew her restraining order, and set up the most advance security system. Shana didn’t expect to meet the sexy-as-sin owner of the security company, Jake Calhoun. She felt an instant, and unyielding, attraction to him, yet still tried very hard to push him away. Everything about him screamed safety and security, but she wasn’t falling for a great body and the lies of love again. She’d learned her lesson the first, and only, time she tried to get close to a man. Jake, Alpha wolf shifter of the American Canyon Pack, couldn’t believe his luck. He was going to have dinner, in the same diner he'd eaten in multiple times a week since he was a kid, when he smelled the most alluring scent. He couldn't think, the scent of vanilla was so distracting, and surprisingly arousing. Jake perked up when his second in command, Conner, informed him of the possibility it might be his mate. Unfortunately, he lost her scent as he got closer to town. A short time later, her scent permeated the air as he walked into his security office. When the threat of her ex returns, Shana has no choice but to entrust their safety to Jake, and his Pack. They vow to help her and her son, Trevor. Jake shows her what it’s like to trust again, and how wonderful it can be when you’re with the right person. She fights for her independence, but ends up with a protective sexy wolf in her bed, and her heart.
