Embracing Fate by Vella Day
Warning: Hot sex and even hotter Alpha shifters
Officer Cord Triggert, a panther and bear shifter, never expected to find his mate given his messed up lineage. But when Piper Capshaw’s house is broken into and she receives a threat, Cord's protective instincts kick into overdrive for the long-legged, fiery haired human.
Piper, a nurse in Hidden Hills, NC, takes one look at the sexy shifter and sets her sights on capturing him for her own. The problem is that while the sex is out of control hot, Cord is coolly detached. Hiding some deep pain, he holds himself back from real love.
Try as she may to break through his tough exterior, Cord is equally determined to keep his distance. But one scorching night together will change everything…for both of them. Now Piper will do anything to hold on to her man and a very unexpected gift.
