She was the one that got away. Literally. Iris North had rejected their mating and left the pack twelve years ago, taking his heart with her. For Cade, shifter biology isn't the reason he's stayed a one-woman man since. It's simply how he's built. Iris was it for him. And being alone for the rest of his life is a reality he accepted a long time ago.
Until, that is, he catches the scent of the newest latent he's ordered to extract. Not only is the woman the furthest thing from a damsel in distress who needs saving, she's a tough, big city homicide detective packing more heat than his men.
She also happens to be his no-longer-missing mate.
