Creed Heinz has been lonely for far too long. Deciding that he and his wolf will never find their mate, he focuses instead on establishing his bar, Little Red's, and not on the fact that he remains single.
Until she walks in looking for a job.
Joselyn Weldon has come home to help her grandmother out of a tight spot. Living in Jackwater Creek, Tennessee her whole life, she had finally broken free and started her own life in Memphis. But when Granny called saying she was about to lose her house, the one that Jossie grew up in, she has no other choice. When she walks into Little Red's for an interview, she meets the attractive, broody owner, but thinks nothing of it.
When Jossie is caught in an out-of-control bar brawl and is grievously injured, Creed has a choice - turn her and save her so he can tell her that they're mates, or let her go.
