Melissa Damien, a wolf shifter, has always lived her life to the fullest. She may have a sassy attitude, but she makes no excuses for who she is. But then she meets her mate in the form of a frightening and dominating bear, and Melissa wonders if being mated is really worth it.
Declan Faylon, a grizzly bear shifter, has worked for the Shifter Intelligence League as a skilled killer since a young age. But since leaving the SIL he is now a mercenary. He never needed anyone in his life, at least not until he sees his mate.
But Declan isn't the only one that wants Melissa. When people start overdosing and are found in cornfields, Declan will have to use lethal training and animal strength to make sure his mate stays safe.
As we know from the previous books in the series, Melissa is one helluva stubborn female who isn't afraid to tell things as it is and take charge.
Despite her yearning and wanting an alpha male bear as her mate, she certainly didn't expect Declan. It was very amusing watching them clash heads. They are one explosive couple! I love the build up and sexual tension to their eventual mating ;)
Very hot and very yummy steam, and their chemistry is off the charts! I love how Melissa tries to resist and not to fall into bed with Declan as he demands.
Jenika definitely spoilt me for all bear shifters now. I need them as huge, growly, possessive, stubborn, territorial, pain-in-the-butt, dirty talker alpha males !
