Crimson hasn't been himself since the night he learned a woman was beaten to death because of his actions. Ghost and Shelly may have forgiven him, but he can't forgive himself. The easy women surrounding him are suddenly far less appealing than they used to be, and he longs for a mate more than ever.
Holly has learned the hard way that it's going to take a special man to appreciate her curves, and the woman she's become, so it's no surprise that she's leery of the handsome man who comes on a little too strong. But no matter how much she tries to push him away, her heart begs her to pull him closer.
When Crimson nearly loses Holly, he realizes that he will do anything to keep her by his side - and when a bear gets an idea in his head, he'll stop at nothing to make it happen. What's a love struck shifter to do when his mate has cold feet?
