I knew next to nothing about the world where I truly belonged when I grew up. Shifter laws weren’t even on my mind until a guy in my college forced a breeding bond on me just before I came of age. I’ve worked as a waitress to take care of my family ever since, and it was hard to see a way out—until I met Rick.
He stirs something inside me I’ve never felt with my cold, controlling partner, something primal and urgent and real. But it’s not as simple as running away with Rick. In the shifter world, bonded female shifters are little more than chattel.
Legally or not, I have to win my freedom, or the life growing inside of me may be the end of my own…
Working in Shifter Affairs is a good diversion from remembering the family I lost decades ago. I’m currently on the trail of a cold-blooded killer from the pack of my late mate. At least, I was before I ran into Mya along the way.
Mya draws me to her in a way I never thought I’d experience after so long. We were meant for each other. But she’s not mine to claim. She belongs to someone else.
Her breeding partner, Todd, isn’t about to let her go, not when she’s pregnant. To save her, I’ll have to break her bond legally or break the law—and there’s no telling how far Todd will go to keep Mya under his thumb.
