A shifter betrayed by family…A girl caught in a web of lies…They can run from the truth, but it will find them. Betrayal comes in a lot of different forms. The rejection of a mother. The loss of a wife. And at its worst, the abduction of a child. Nick’s heart has been torn and twisted so many times his chest is little more than a cavity of scar tissue.
Then, for the first time in years…a single, tiny pulse.
Nick’s fought long and hard to win back his little girl and give them both the life his late wife would have wanted. He hopes the new nanny, Maggie, will help bridge the chasm between them, and encourage the girl to see him as more than the monster she’s been raised to believe he is.
But Maggie has her own secrets, like the fact Nick sends heat rushing through her body each time she meets his eyes. Their chemistry is undeniable, but she can’t succumb to the attraction.
Because if he knew the truth about her, she’d smash the last fractured pieces of his heart beyond all hope of repair.
