From Bestselling author, J.H. Croix, another steamy paranormal romance in her Catamount Lion Shifters Series! Shana Ashworth is trying to pick up the pieces of her life after her husband’s tragic death and the discovery of his betrayal of Catamount shifters. What no one knows is that long before she became a widow, Shana’s marriage was cold and distant. Her heart still feels encased in ice. The only man who seems capable of cracking through the ice is Hayden Thorne—a sexy, smoldering, and powerful shifter from Montana.
When Hayden shows up for a visit in Catamount on a mission for help to break down the smuggling network in Montana, the first woman he encounters is Shana. Shana is breathtaking—a deliciously curvy, intelligent, sexy and strong shifter. When Hayden met her before in Montana, the spark between them burned bright and hot. But he kept his distance. Now, he finds that impossible. Shana is his flame as much as he is hers.
Shana wants nothing more than a fling—someone to make her feel again. Hayden is perfect—an out-of-town shifter who will be gone before her heart has a chance to get involved. She underestimates what lies between them. While Hayden chases the truth about the smuggling network, Shana comes to mean more to him than he imagined—everything. She is meant to be his mate, but he knows she must come to him only when she trusts her heart.
More than anything, Shana wants to feel in control of what happens in her life. The draw to Hayden is so powerful, she can hardly bear it. Yet, she must dig deep to believe in possibility again. As Shana tries to come to terms with what Hayden means to her, Hayden must see through his investigation and where it leads. Shana’s struggle to trust threatens their love.
On a journey that spans from Montana to Maine, Hayden and Shana must hold tight to each other as they unravel the threads of shifter secrets. Both put their lives on the line to protect each other and all that shifters hold dear. In a love story filled with passion, steamy romance, suspense and adventure, the tinder of desire flares into white-hot passion, tossing and twisting them in its fire. Shana and Hayden must discover if the power of their love can hold them together.
