Blake Wheeler has never believed in fated mates, families, or happily-ever-after – so why does his inner wolf sit up and howl every time he sets eyes on curvy nurse practitioner Krista Ellis? A kidnapped cub and her estranged family's possible involvement mean he's constantly on her foxy little tail - but the bitter ex soldier tells himself he's only interested in her colorful past, not the future they could have.
Country girl Krista's left the wreckage of her childhood behind and built a new life for herself in the city. She hopes her future might include the sexy stranger who's been shadowing her – until she finds out what he really wants from her. She's a ticket to completing his next mission, and nothing more. Too bad her inner vixen keeps sniffing around him like he's an all-you-can-lick buffet.
Will their destiny as fated mates survive the darkness of Krista's past?
