Cole Andrews has only wanted one thing -- his destined mate. Family is everything to Cole and he can't wait to start one of his own. Now that he's in his thirties, he's starting to wonder if Mrs. Right is really out there or if she slipped through his fingers. He's seen every available woman in his small town of Ashton Grove and so far none of them are "the one." When he discovers a crashed car in the woods near his home in his wolf form, he follows the tantalizing smell of the human driver. Marin Thomas has a troubled past, and one that could catch up to her at any moment, but with just one sniff Cole knows that he'll do whatever it takes to keep her safe.
