Can he put aside his guilt and claim his mate?
Foul-mouthed shifter Hayley Jaynes is determined to prove herself trustworthy and responsible. Even considering dating grizzly shifter Marius Nichols would be directly at odds with her goal. He's wild, he's done wrong to her family, and he's so hot that she doesn't trust herself around him. Too bad she needs a fake boyfriend, and he's her only choice. There's no harm in having a little fun on their not-dates, until her inner mountain lion is screaming for more.
Marius deserves worse than Hayley's scorn, and he knows it. Bad enough he helped torment her family—there are more secrets he's keeping. If they came to light, he knows Hayley would never forgive him. One kiss and Marius can't get enough, one lie and it's over before he can tell his mate what she means to him.
But in the Dark Pines territory, secrets have a way of coming out, and when an old treaty between Hayley's family and a rival pride puts Hayley in danger, Marius must put aside his guilt and step in, or risk losing his mate forever.

This series is so fun!
This series is so fun!
Hayley is a RIOT. I seriously took notes of her one-liners and weird insulting names she came up with had me laughing out loud. As the story played out, Hayley became the master of her own destiny in a move I really liked. She's a feisty one, this Hayley!
But aside from that, WOW was Marius in a tough spot. I don't want to ruin anything, but let's just say that things he did in the past greatly affected Hyley, and I was interested to see how he broke the news to her and how she reacted.
And holy heat level! This book is SPICY!!! It's the perfect balance of hot and sweet.
And I'm still DYING to read Will's story!!! Which should be next! I'm so excited!!!
