Rena “Red” Hoodman is on her way to her grandmother’s house. After a crazy year that ends with the loss of her job she agrees to cabin sit. Now, she’s trapped in the woods and drawn to a rugged mid-night blonde, onyx eyed handyman contracted to do work around the house. This man is no stranger to her, even if she’s suppressed those memories in her mind, her body knows. Years later, there’s still something about him that makes the hair stand-up on the back of her neck and her inner thighs sweat.
Cord Bjorn’s mate has finally come home again and this time the timing is perfect. With his father ruffling his fur about claiming his place in the county with a mate, Cord felt tied to a leash. Now, there’s a shift in the wind and Rena is her name. He still recalls the last summer she visited Den County and the kiss they shared beside the lake. Heat and attraction build until he and the sienna beauty find themselves tangled in sheets. A night that should have ended with a morning full of smiles, instead dawn breaks and truths unfold.
Red finds herself running for her life, from secrets and lies that she’s too afraid to accept.
