Werebear enforcer Van Abrams has his reasons for the disdain he feels towards humans and is shocked when his bear recognizes the gorgeous, bat swinging full human Lauren as his true mate.  It looks like he’ll finally have to deal with his feelings because he’s claiming his mate and hunting down a powerful enemy out to kill her.
Is it surprising that the human hating Van’s destined mate is a human?  Not really yet that didn’t stop me from finding much to love about this book.  When we meet Lauren she’s busting into her best friend’s house, baseball bat in hand, to stop her abusive husband before he lands another strike.  Does it matter that he’s the town’s mayor?  Nope. Lauren gives him a taste of his own medicine and this is when she meets Van. As he’s putting handcuffs on her and carting her off to jail. Romantic story to tell the kids one day, right?
