She was one of the lucky ones, though. A group of men rescued her before she could be shipped off and sent her to their friends for safekeeping. The problem? The heroes and their friends are Shifters, too. The same species she’d been taught to fear are the people charged with her safety.
But after she’s delivered to Noah’s doorstep, she realizes not all Shifters are the boogeymen she’d been taught to believe. In fact, her magic seems to constantly pull her in Noah’s direction.

It only took one night for bear Shifter Luke to become obsessed with the petite woman he’d protected from her abusive brother. One night. All he’d intended was to keep her safe. Instead, he’s found himself obsessing over every tiny thing about her, from her tiny body to her pretty green eyes.
The moment he sees her cougar explode from her skin he knows there’s no way he can get her off her mind. He has to make her his.
One problem: Luke doesn’t want a mate. He never has. He doesn’t want to risk becoming like his father.
But this woman has dug herself so deep into his heart and psyche, he’s rethinking everything he’s ever believed.
Piper was determined to live her life the way she wanted, not the way her family planned. She didn’t care that her habit of alphabetizing and colorizing every part of her life was odd. She didn’t care that her family wanted her mated with the next in line to be Alpha. She just wants freedom. Not a mate. Not cubs. Just her job and her tiny little house.
So when bear Shifter Luke begins patrolling her yard every night, she can’t figure out why her cat has taken so much interest in the male. He’s nothing like the males in her Pride. He’s quiet and gruff and covered in tattoos.
But her cougar isn’t the only one who can’t keep Luke off her mind. The more time she spends around Luke, the more she can’t help but want him.
The risks are high, both for Luke and Piper. But are they worth it? Can Luke get over his past and look forward to his future? Can Piper earn the freedom from her family and allow her heart to feel for Luke?
