When a mysterious illness begins to sweep through Noctem Falls affecting the children, Eleanor Kimball is called to the city to see if she can determine what is wrong. As a pediatrician Eleanor loves children and desires many of her own, however, after several dating disasters she has not only sworn off men, but has given up her dream of a family, and the promise of a destined mate.
After discovering Grant in Noctem Falls she is faced with her own insecurities and finds it hard to believe in his love.
Grant Douglas is a man of few words and doesn’t do well surrounded by others. He is scared to death of finding a mate. He believes the harshness of his past, where he struggled to survive, didn’t cultivate a gentle heart. After a series of terrifying nightmares where his mate is at risk, Grant has decided he doesn’t want a mate at all.
When he meets Ellie, he realizes there are some things worth fighting for. Even if it means putting himself out there by becoming the Alpha he was born to be and facing the power he desperately tries to hide.
As Ellie starts to believe in Grant’s love it will take every ounce their combined strength to discover why the shifter children are suddenly falling ill before it’s too late.

He grabbed the hem of her shirt and in one fluid motion pulled it over her head. She squealed and grabbed for a blanket. His dark chuckle reverberated through her. “Don’t hide from me.”
Ellie had one arm across her breasts and the other one was desperately trying to use the blanket to cover her legs. “My thighs are huge!”
When Grant crawled out from under the blankets Ellie could clearly see that he was, indeed, naked. With a wolfish grin he pushed her onto the pillows. “The only time a man should be worried about a woman’s thighs is when he’s trying to earn a place between them.”
What was probably supposed to be a sexy moment turned into a game of tug of war with the blanket. Their actions reminded her of playing with her neighbor’s dog, Kip. She released the blanket and Grant landed back on the mattress. She covered her mouth with both hands giggling uncontrollably.
Grant tilted his head to one side, just like Kip and she could barely breathe she was laughing so hard. “S-s-stop it!” When he growled out his frustration she had to cross her legs.
“Ellie, what has gotten into you?” he asked as he rolled her on her back. He knelt between her legs and stared down into her face.
“You remind me of Kip.” She wiped her eyes.
“Who is the hell is Kip?”
“My neighbors yorkie-poo.”
“What the fuck is a yorkie-poo?”
“Yorkshire terrier and poodle.”
He blinked. “I remind you of a poodle?”

It wasn’t until after they sat down that she noticed a small figure sitting across from her. They had their hoodie pulled up and they were laying with their face down on the table. “Are they alright?” Ellie asked pointing, unsure who sat in the chair.
The head lifted and Ellie was shocked to see that it was Meryn. The small woman’s eyes were barely open and she looked frightening. Bleary eyed she pointed to them. “Ryuu,” she croaked.
“Is she okay!” Ellie asked concerned.
Ryuu nodded a slight smile hovering over his lips. “Denka, isn’t at her best in the morning. We’re still waiting for the first pot of coffee to finish.” He pulled something out of his vest pocket. “I believe these were made for the two of you.” Ryuu handed them two small stones. Ellie looked at Grant and was about to ask him what they were when she was caught off guard at his pure unadulterated joyous smile.
A part of her wished her mate would be happy enough to smile more often, but if she was honest with herself, she was glad that his dazzling smiles were few and far between. They made them that much more special.
“Dude, you’re like super sexy when you smile,” Meryn said her voice sounding rough.
Ellie beamed at her. “I know right!”
“Die morning person.” Meryn put her face back on the table.
Ryuu patted her shoulder. “She doesn’t really mean it.”
Ellie grinned. “I’ve worked in many hospitals, trust me, I’m used to grumpy, sleep deprived people.”
She turned to her mate who was still grinning like a kid at Christmas. “What are they?”
Grant held up his stone. “They are…” He turned to the half dead human. “Meryn, what are we calling these?”
She lifted her head and snarled. “You’re seriously asking me to think?”
Grant pointed to the stone. “You created it with the twins, you should name it.”
“Call it ‘Mornings always suck huge elephant dick’.” Meryn grumbled
At the other end of the table Magnus and Adriel choked on their blood. Elizabeth and Eva however looked unfazed.
“Is she always like this in the mornings?” Ellie asked Eva.
Eva winked. “Why do ya think I eat breakfast down here. Not only is Sebastian’s cooking phenomenal, but I get a show too.”
