First-grade teacher Caroline isn't the kind of girl who goes looking for trouble, but after a trip north to meet single men with her best friend, it seems like trouble finds her. She spends a wild night with a handsome stranger and ends up with a broken heart -- and a few months later, a different kind of surprise.
Bear shifter Max didn't expect to have any fun at a mail order bride gathering, but fate had other things in store for him. When Caroline flees the morning after their tryst, he resigns himself to more lonely nights out at the oil fields. Then she comes looking for him, and he realizes there's more going on between them than just a wild night. She can't hide her baby bump like he hides his bear side. He's just getting used to the idea of being a father when the enemy wolf pack starts stirring up trouble.
Caroline doesn't understand what Max is hiding, but getting kidnapped by a bunch of strangers and wolves seems like just another day for his family. She isn't ready to raise a kid by herself, but she can't stay at the ranch when there's danger around every corner. How can she have a baby with a guy she barely knows, and one who seems to be hiding something huge? Can she and Max figure it all out before the biggest change of their lives is... delivered?
