He knows she’s here, somewhere close by, so why can’t he find her? Can fate really be so cruel?
Harlan can sense his mate. He has sensed her for months, and yet he can’t find her. Is he too old? Are his senses failing? Maybe it’s his imagination. Maybe it’s time to leave Bear Creek, and all his hopes behind.
Fiona has hidden away for centuries. Only when she met the people of Bear Creek and learned to trust them, did she dare reveal her other side. Only here has she acknowledged she is a dragon shifter. That’s what love does to a person, it allows them to be themselves. It allows them to trust, to believe.
But something is stirring out there. Something that calls to her heart and her soul.
She knows it’s time to reveal her true self. Whatever the cost. And, from experience, Fiona knows the cost only too well.
Just when it looks as if she is going to get her own happy ever after, fate has one more hand to play. Two girls are handed to social services by their stepmother. It’s not unusual, Fiona has seen it many times before—Five hundred and thirty-one—to be exact. But these two girls are special. Very special, and Fiona will sacrifice everything to give them the home they need.
Will her mate feel the same way? Or will she have to make the ultimate sacrifice?
