Lily Malory has never known the love of a man because of a vicious rumor. With a knack for relationship advice and a good head for business, she turned Dark Moon Bar and Grill into a success despite the building’s rundown appearance. She’s learned to live with her loneliness.
Ozz Kendell is an executioner for the Shifter Tribunal. He knows the dark-haired beauty running the bar is his mate, but he refuses to claim her. His dark past will ruin her life. When the minions of an evil scientist discover she is a shifter mate, Ozz has no choice but to protect her. Once she is safe, he will find the strength needed to walk away forever—forgoing the happiness he deserves.
Lily forges a tentative friendship with the dangerously sexy Ozz. He comes into her bar every week like clockwork. She discovers shapeshifters exist and her world changes. Now she must depend on Ozz to save her from a threat she doesn’t understand. A threat that could destroy the one man she could love.
