Kaisie Giliati is the lucani king’s best tracker. He’s used to hunting and capturing his prey with little resistance. He’s also old enough to know exactly what he wants, and the feisty redhead who stirs him like no other is at the top of his list. Too bad she’s the enemy and seemingly impervious to his charms.
Grace Bellasario has a target on her back, two children to protect from their evil father and she’s in love for the first time in her life. With a man who should hate her—a man she has no business craving. But does she ever. Grace doesn’t have a chance in hell of shaking Kaisie off her tail. Now he just needs to keep her alive to live happily ever after…
Grace Bellasario did what any mother would do when faced with a sick and dying child. She kidnapped some super–healing shifters and tested their blood for anti-bodies. Okay, maybe that's a little extreme for most parents but the desperation to help her son was very real. When the boy’s father kidnaps the child Grace knows she needs a tracker, an amazing tracker, to find both him and his sister. What she doesn’t need is to fall in love with a bossy shifter!
