Rainy’s life if finally going according to plan. Her bakery is a success and her days are filled with cupcakes and rainbow sprinkles… until she witnesses a feathered monster being kidnapped from the alley behind her shop.
Buried under the weight of his role as Alpha, Nate will do anything to find his missing shifter, even if it means babysitting a sassy witness who somehow has him wearing a pink apron and baking tarts. Her safety is his responsibility… at least that’s what his bear is telling him.
Can her heart handle the bear or will the two of them embrace the temptation?
Rachel grew up in a world ripped apart by civil war. Alphas, genetically superior humans, wrested control of the western nations from the governing body twelve years ago. In the wake of the war, the Alphas struggled to remember the old traditions which had bound them to society. There are cracks in the new foundations, places for bad men to rule and for innocents to fall through.
After trying to care for her unstable mother, Rachel is picked up as a lawbreaker and slated for claiming or execution by an Alpha. In walked a stranger named Morgan. Unwashed, unshaven, flip flop wearing, unrefined Morgan, who all but kidnapped Rachel to take her home to his Master to be his breeder.
Neither planned beyond that. Alphas tend to just let things happen, and Rachel didn’t really expect to live through the day. Maybe a plan would have made things run smoother.
Lori’s lost in the forest, regretting her idea to go for a hike. Hurt and getting more and more scared – especially when she hears the howls or a large animal nearby! In her haste to get away she falls and knocks herself out. The large animal finds her, having heard her screams!
The wolf changes and the Alpha looks down at the female. As soon as he picks her up his body reacts and he, at first, has no idea why! All he knows is his wolf wants out, wants to mark this human as his!
Lori is oblivious to what’s in store over the next few days as the powerful Alpha carries her to his cabin!
