When the sheriff assigns Rachel Corningstone to solve the greatest crime spree in Plymouth Falls history, she knows this is her shot. The former big-city detective will finally prove to her new peers that she's more than just a pretty face. When a civilian consultant is forced upon her as a partner though, it might just be more than she can handle. Rachel doesn't want a partner. Not after the last time.
Sent to the town of Plymouth Falls, bear shifter Khove has one mission: to find the traitor to House Ursa and kill him. The traitor is burning down more of their businesses every night. It's a race against time, and Khove can't afford any distractions, but how is he supposed to stop himself from claiming his mate?
While Khove will go to any length to protect his mate, the one thing he can't do is let the traitor survive - even at the expense of his own happiness. Can Rachel come to grips with the rules of the shifter world, or will her sense of justice prevent her from understanding why Khove must kill?
