Things have been relatively peaceful lately for bear shifter Josh Horne, a member of the Sentinels, Genesis Valley’s elite protection squad. The Underground is in a tentative cease-fire with the Agency. So when he’s given orders from the very top to act as a bodyguard to someone coming to King City for a few days, he expects it to be a walk in the park.
Hannah Terrik isn’t in need of “babysitting,” as she puts it. She’s a big girl who can take care of herself—far more than anyone suspects. Traveling with her brother, who advocates for equal rights for shifters, she doesn’t realize just how dangerous that can be in King City. Nor does she count on her babysitter to be intelligent, polite, and breathtakingly handsome.
Josh quickly realizes there is more to the woman he can’t keep his eyes off of, though she won’t reveal her dark secret to him. Forced into close proximity to each other, he finds himself falling harder and harder for her. But when the fighting starts, with enemies both old and new closing in, her secret is revealed.
Can the bear shifter overcome everything he’s been taught about it, or will the revelation be more than he can handle?
