Erika Rey was wasting her time. She wasn’t even sure she wanted a shifter for a mate. She was already carrying the child of one within her, thanks to a villainous—but now destroyed—human corporation. Did she really want to bring another into her life? Saying no to the invitation wasn’t really an option though. The shifters of Cadia had given her food, clothing, and shelter. The least she could do is go to the Shifter Ball. But she wouldn’t dance with anyone. Certainly not the unbelievably gorgeous Harden, whose lean, hard muscle and pale green eyes speak of so much pain. Absolutely not. No way.
One dance later, the pair have hit it off, bringing smiles to both of their faces. The real challenge has just begun though. By associating herself with Harden, Erika finds out that she’s put a lot in jeopardy, including her unborn child. Not everyone likes the outsider, and several of them have made it their mission to run him out of town. Or else. But Harden is done backing down. It’s time to show them all who the big bad wolf in town really is.
