A good man drowning in bad deeds. A bad girl denying a good heart. Reluctant hero Giles St. Clair doesn't need a problem like Brigit MacCreedy. Fleeing the retribution of her dead lover's clan, Brigit is willing to do whatever it takes to protect her family…except trust the human who puts himself between her and her powerful enemies in a battle he can't win.

While balancing a criminal empire and a shapeshifter clan war, Giles St. Clair is charged with protecting Brigit MacCreedy. How much trouble can the head-strong and manipulative Shifter beauty get into in two weeks? Plenty, when her schemes range from kidnapping to fleeing the retribution of her dead lover’s clan.

With her family’s lives on the line, Brigit is willing to do whatever it takes to save them. The only thing standing in her way is an immovable stone wall of a man she can’t bully or beguile…a human, no less, who has promised to protect her from the secrets and dangers she conceals.

Risking her own safety gets complicated when an honorable and annoyingly desirable man puts himself between her and her powerful enemies in a battle he can’t win, in this “Taming of the Shrew meets Shifter Goodfellas on the Bayou” tale of consequences, redemption, and finding love in all the wrong places.
