Duke Stevens is dying. Since he lost his wife and mate Grace, he’s faced one certain fact, a werewolf without his mate will waste away and die. And for a man like Duke, that’s no way to end his life. He doesn’t have much time left and only two options – a slow death or a fast one at the end of his gun. His only hope is to find a new mate and the chances of that are slim.
But on the night of the Second Moon, strange forces are at work, driving Samantha Waters toward her destiny and Duke.
Duke knows the moment he meets Sam he’s found his mate, he just has to convince her of two things, he’s a werewolf and she’s his mate. He needs her to fall in love with him and marry him as soon as possible, because every moment counts for Duke.
But Sam isn’t going to give in so easy. She’s been down the rough road of love before and she won’t be pushed or rushed into anything, especially marriage. Not by Duke, not by his dying wolf, or even Duke’s desperate family.
For Duke to win Sam over he’s going to have to get her to open her heart to him and to accept her own truth – Sam is a witch.
