When Denali’s car breaks down in bear shifter territory, he knows he’s in trouble. As an otter he doesn’t stand a chance against a bear. His best hope is to get to a phone and call for help. But a bear attacks him before he can get more than a mile down the road.
Clyde, a bear shifter, knew taking his cousin Kai out for a run would be a bad idea even before they came upon the otter. Now he just wants to make it up to Denali, whose ankle is badly damaged from Kai’s attack. He takes Denali to Brody, a human who is also their local shifter doctor, and believes his responsibility for the otter is done at that point.
When the dreams come for both of them, proving that they’re mates, Denali comes to Clyde to find out how to break their mate bond. But resisting his bear turns out to be impossible, even though Denali knows it will tear his otter family apart.
