**No cheating hero. Monogamous bear shifter romance.**
Hannah Michaels is on the run, and the protection detail assigned to her case have her wondering who, or what, she's trusting her life with. After testifying against a criminal with a long reach, her days are numbered if her handler, Jeremy, can't find a safe place for her. Out of options and with nowhere to go, she's dropped off in the Big Horn Mountains of Montana with a duffle bag of her belongings and little explanation.
Jeremy swears she'll be safe in this wilderness sanctuary, but when she meets Benson Riker, leader of the bear shifter clan of Big Horn Valley, she doesn't feel safe at all. In fact, the man is just about as feral as they come.
In a bout of epically bad timing, she accidentally vies to be mated to the alpha, and no matter how much she tries to escape the competition for Riker's affection, he is having none of it. He cites upholding clan law as his reasons for wanting her to stay, but the hungry look in his eyes says it's more personal than that.
Weathering deep secrets and danger from all sides, she'll have to decide if Riker is the shifter who deserves her heart.
