Kendra Daye once had everything she desired: a pack she cherished and a mate she adored. But when a new up-and-coming alpha challenges her husband—and wins—her perfect world shatters. One year later, Kendra is still haunted by the memory of her dead husband and their life together. So, when her sister suggests a vacation, she agrees. A shifter cruise sounds like the perfect escape from her grief...until she meets Leo, a sexy lion shifter who makes her heart beat again. But Kendra can't outrun her past—no matter how desperate she is to find a new future.
Leo "don't-call-me-Leopold-cuz-I'll-punch-you-in-the-face" Clapak is determined to enjoy his last vacation before taking over the pride. A week of booze, women, and sun sounds like the perfect way to ring in his new life of paperwork, responsibility, and—oh, right—fending off unwanted arranged marriages. But when he meets Kendra, his priorities shift. Someone needs to remind this sassy werewolf that life is worth living. He just needs to show her that he's the right man for the job, because Kendra's wolf sure makes him want to learn to howl.
