Katie Duncan has been on the run for a long time, hunted by her ruthless stepfather and haunted by her own werewolf nature. She has found refuge in the picturesque mountain town of Blowing Rock, North Carolina, with her were-bear “Uncle” Frank as her guardian.
David Finn has discovered something beautiful…Katie Duncan, the tenant in one of the cottages on his property on Shadow Mountain. While keeping a discreet eye on her in his wolf form, he suspects Katie is being watched by someone else, a menacing presence he feels compelled to investigate. David is attacked and knocked unconscious in the middle of a snowstorm outside of the cabin, confirming his suspicions.
When Katie discovers a naked man in a snow bank by her cabin, it does not take long to discover that David is her fated mate. And she knows it will not take long for her stepfather to hunt them both down, take her, and kill the man who can make her heart stop with a look.
His people are under attack, and David suspects his new mate’s past holds answers for him. But how can he fight to protect a woman who cannot trust him, despite the fact Nature has chosen them for each other?
To protect her mate and taking vengeance on the man who destroyed her life, will Katie embrace her inner wolf and face her destiny?
