Rescued alive, but not whole…
Laura is a white wolf shifter far from home and out of her element. She’s been held prisoner for years by those who would use her power for their evil purposes, but she’s held strong against them and lived to tell the tale. But she’s lost everything in the process—her mate, her baby girl, her zeal for living. Her baby is a grown woman now, and Laura is overjoyed to be reunited with her only child, but questions remain.
Is he her friend, or warden?
Tasked by the Alpha of his Clan to watch over Laura’s recovery, Gus feels especially drawn to the injured woman. He is a rare spirit bear shifter who walks the shaman’s path. Considered spooky by most of his friends, Gus finds acceptance and welcome from Laura that he cannot resist. The question bothers him - and his Alpha - was her escape too easy? Has she been delivered into their midst as some kind of living Trojan Horse?
How can he be her true mate?
Laura begins to realize that the so-called mate she’d had years ago may not have been her one, true mate. Her attraction to Gus is too strong to be denied and she feels things for him that she never felt with her baby’s father. New feelings are stirring - as is a feeling of danger and inexplicable rage when she sees anybody other than Gus or her daughter. Something is wrong. Very wrong. She will need help to defeat the residual evil left on her by years of captivity. She only hopes Gus and the good people of Grizzly Cove will be up to the task - and that something will be left after the evil is washed away. She’s only just regained her life. She doesn’t want to lose it again…this time, possibly, forever.
