Shaun has been perpetually unlucky in love. None of the women he meets are his mate…but that doesn’t stop him from finding enjoyment with those he becomes close to. All that changes on the day he meets Meeghan Nicholson, a new deputy for the town of Stonepass. Shaun recognises that the feisty black-haired beauty is the one he’s been searching for all his life. So it’s a shame that the woman hates him on first sight. Now a man who’s always been known to speak before he thinks must sweet talk his way into his mate’s arms. Meeghan is tired of men who think that because she’s a woman they can get her to do whatever they want. Her body might soften at Shaun Colfer’s seductive touch, but she refuses to let her heart succumb to the sneaky shifter. Can Meeghan calm Shaun’s tempestuousness? Can Shaun crack the shell surrounding Meeghan’s heart? It just might work…but only with a mate’s touch.
