Emery Ericksen fled her herd, intent on escaping an arranged marriage to an abusive alpha. Ending up in a small town, she works as a waitress at the Lyon’s Den, saving up as much money as possible so that she can move on before she winds up on one of the local felines’ dinner menu. She managed to stay under the radar, not attracting too much attention, until he walked into the bar. A possessive bear with a gruff attitude, who wanted to throw her over his shoulder, take her back to his cave, and do delicious things to her. What was fate thinking giving her a bear for a mate, anyway?
After the death of his parents, Knox Channing moved his family to the small town of Moonstone where they could build a new life. He loves his family, his ranch, and his solitude-in that order. If he had his way, he would never leave the peace and quiet of his home. All that changes when he catches her scent. After years of being alone, he finally found his mate. She was beautiful, curvy as hell, and… a bunny?
Sure there is no chance of a future with Knox, Emery believes she must stick to her original plan, hopping town as soon as possible. Even if Knox can stop her from running, will he be able to keep her safe from her past when it catches up with her?
A prelude to more
This is a perfect start to, hopefully, many more books. While watching Knox save his bunny we see so many characters just begging to have a story of their own. These strong, brave women are surrounded by equally strong alpha males who are sure to help them on their way. I’m looking forward to reading more about the rest of this loveable bear clan.
