After a traumatic first shifting, curvy Sarah Miller has shunned getting involved with anyone, human or shifter. It's just her and her bear, and that's the way she likes it - lonely but safe.
Bear shifter Jason John has the unlucky assignment of tracking down the missing Sarah Miller. Unlucky because, well, his quarry has evaded searchers for the last 10 years, and he's no bloodhound. But he's no quitter either, particularly after he gets a whiff of Sarah's tantalizing scent.
But finding Sarah turns out to be more than a family matter. A trail of mauled humans leads directly to Sarah. Feral shifters can't be allowed to live, which sticks Jason right between his duty to protect shifters - and his intense need to claim his fated mate.
