Lisa Modesto needs an ambitious, proactive mate to help her navigate Pack drama. With her younger sisters being on the fast track to matrimony with a couple of indolent werewolves from her old Pack, she has to get them out, and soon. She accepts a random pairing with a male from an unknown pack, hoping to find a potential safe haven for her sisters, only to get matched with an idle wolf who has a full moon-sized chip on his shoulder.
Wolf-for-hire Colt Baylor is used to doing the bare minimum to get by. He’s convinced the stability the Norseton Wolfpack has experienced in the past half year is short-lived, and he doesn’t want to put his heart into impermanent things. He learned that lesson all too well as a teen, but his reluctant new mate would have him revisit it.
Lisa is convinced that her born-alpha mate has the potential to solve big problems, but not without incentive. He’s a wolf with a troubled past, and if she pushes too hard, she’ll lose his trust. She can’t afford that. Colt may not only be the ticket to a better life for her sisters, but possibly the closest thing to a perfect mate a domineering Type A personality like her will ever find.
