When solitary Marcella Bailey ventures to join her sister on the staff of Shrew & Company, she doesn’t anticipate being partnered with the man she’s been avoiding for weeks. Bear shifter Soren Ursu claims she’s his mate.
But witches like Marcella don’t get mates.
Soren hopes he can convince Marcella to accept their connection, but she’s got a one-track mind. She’s focused on winning the job and ending the company’s crusade against the unscrupulous research firm CarrHealth. He needs her to understand that nothing bad will happen if she lets him love her…in spite of the fact his parents are trying to pull her into the family’s supernatural assassination business.
Marcella can’t help but to be skeptical. Getting close to Soren would force her to reveal shocking secrets about herself that not even her sister knows.
She might be perfectly suited to navigate the demands of one of Bear-kind’s most notorious families, but to save Soren from the obligations of his clan, she must be willing to let him rescue her as well.
