Niall Crawford has given up on dating. He’s sick of Shiftr, with its glittering promises of 90% matches that turn out to be nothing but mistakes. That’s just fine, because he’s stuck in Devil’s Back Ridge, two hours outside of Hope Valley, being temporary Alpha to a ragtag bunch of half-civilized beasts. Exiled from his clan and secretly struggling with his bear, Niall’s having a hard time of it. When the coyote shifter steals his phone and uses Shiftr to lure an unsuspecting woman to Devil’s Back Ridge, Niall’s world just about implodes. Especially when he discovers that she's none other than Marcia. His first love, Marcia. The one who broke his heart sixteen years earlier.
Marcia Hunt has left her old life behind. With her career and marriage in ruins, she’s moved to Hope Valley and signed up to Shiftr. She’s lost her heart already, but maybe she can find the loyalty and protection she craves. When Niall rescues her from her scary, yellow-eyed date, old feelings come rushing back. He’s no longer the boy she once knew—he’s darker, tortured and full of secrets. And he tells her she can’t stay in the territory. But he needs help—even if he’s too proud to admit it—and she’s not leaving him again.
It’s dangerous having Marcia in Devil's Back Ridge—and not only because the beasts aren’t allowed to be around women. When Marcia’s suggestion that Niall fake-claim her results in a real kiss, tensions simmer even higher. The years have done nothing to quell the deep passion between the two of them, but will it be enough to overcome the wounds of the past and help Niall to recover his bear in time to save them both?
This is a standalone book, full of romance, laughs and sexy shifters. HEA and no cheating, of course!
