Growing up on the tough Philly streets, Gwen O'Neill has
learned how to fend for herself. But what is she supposed
to do with a nice, suburban Jersey boy in the form of a
massive Grizzly shifter? Especially one with a rather
unhealthy fetish for honey, moose, and...uh...well, her.
Yet despite his menacing ursine growl and four-inch claws,
Gwen finds Lachlan 'Lock' MacRyrie cute and really sweet.
He actually watches out for her, protects her, and unlike
the rest of her out-of-control family manages not to
morbidly embarrass her. Too bad cats don't believe in
forever. At nearly seven feet tall, Lock is used to people
responding to him in two ways: screaming and running away.
Gwen - half lioness, half tigress, all kick-ass - does
neither. She's sexy beyond belief and smart as hell, but
she's born protector. Watching out for the family and
friends closest to her but missing the fact that she's
being stalked by a murderous enemy who doesn't like
hybrids...and absolutely hates Gwen. Lock probably
shouldn't get involved, but he will. Why? Because this is
Gwen - and no matter what the hissing, roaring, drape
destroying feline says about not being ready to settle
down, Lock knows he can't simply walk away. Not when she's
come to mean absolutely everything to him.
