Calder Waltz is finished with love.
She died, and with her went his relationship with his mate Sam. With nothing left to lose, Calder drove off into the sunset. He’s spent years bouncing from place to place, and now returning to town for his little sister’s wedding is harder than leaving in the first place.
Then he meets Annika, a curvy brunette who tempts him that way for the first time in years. Suddenly Calder’s world has tilted on its axis, and he can’t stop thinking about her.
Annika’s too busy running her bakery to date one person, let alone two shifters – after all, they mate in triads. She especially doesn’t have time for her best friend’s long-lost brother, Calder, even if the way he smiles does make her feel warm and gooey inside. He’s a drifter who refuses to settle down, and she wants a partner, not a project.
Too bad she can’t seem to stay away from the big, brawny alpha with a tragic past…
When Calder shows up at Sam’s house in the middle of the night, completely wasted, his long-abandoned mate does the only thing he can. He lets him in. And with him, the potential for a new beginning – a second chance that centers around lovely Annika.
Can two former mates heal the rift between them? More importantly, can they learn to trust before they lose it all a second time?
How many fated mates does a shifter get?
