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.

Dana Slade isn’t just Durham’s most tenacious private detective, but also an unwilling initiate into the mysterious paranormal world. After an unregulated research trial warped her DNA and turned her into an honest-to-goodness mutant, she lost her man and her job. Her spirit may have been broken, but she didn’t lose her edge.
It turns out that Patrick O’Dwyer isn’t missing, but hiding, and he’s got something in common with Dana. He’s recently had an unwilling initiation into the supernatural domain of his own, and his secret could devastate the business he’s worked so hard to build. He needs a confidante for sure, but he sees in the fierce investigator the potential for so much more than that.
The new were-cat could be the perfect partner Dana didn’t know she needed, but not if she can’t convince herself that another chance at love is worth the risks.
The last time Justine Eklund had heard from Gray Voss was when he’d agreed to take her to her sister’s wedding. He stood her up. Twelve years later, he’s back in Wyoming as the new owner of Storafalt’s only pharmacy. He didn’t come alone, though. He brought along the small cowboy town’s best-kept secret—his preteen son, Danny.
Gray wants to pick up where he left off. He never stopped loving the beautiful rabble-rouser, and thinks she’ll fit seamlessly into his little family. Justine yearns to reignite that old torch, but she’s wary. She’s not convinced her high school sweetheart will stick around.
Storafalt’s only school is on a rapid decline, so Gray may have no choice but to return Danny to the life they built in Austin. If he goes, there’s no way Justine can go with them. Unlike Gray, she’s rooted too deeply to leave.
