To protect his mate, Kase cut her out of his life. Like all Quicksilver dragons, Kase is destined to lose his mind without a mate, but the fear of hurting her is too much for him to overcome. He must keep her safe at all costs. But as his condition deteriorates, he loses control. He's sent back to his homeland, back to the one place he shouldn't be—back to her.
Michelle Barden has her dream job as the head scientist at an independent laboratory. She's close to curing the degenerative disease that's plaguing her parents. She has everything she could ever want, except the one man she can't stop thinking about. Kase disappeared after just a few dates, but now he's back, and he wants to invest in the lab.
The spark between them is immediately rekindled, but it can't last. She's in danger, and with him confined to the area, he does what is necessary to send her away, thinking he's protecting her. Other forces have an interest in his mate as well, and they'll stop at nothing to get what they want. He can't defeat them, not without her by his side. Can Kase undo all the damage he's caused while trying to do what he thinks is right?
