Jake values his solitary life but he didn’t count on Vaughn, who’s made it his goal to pursue and tame the bander.
Jake Bander is a bander, a type of shifter and a notoriously taciturn loner. As a boy, he was rescued by a man who ran an animal rescue preserve and now Jake runs the place. He’s content keeping his secret, and accepts the truth: he’ll always be alone.
Vaughn Prentiss is a trust-fund baby--exactly the sort of summer visitor who gets on Jake’s last nerve. Vaughn is only slightly shaken in his unruffled existence after an encounter with Jake, the cranky loner he’s undeniably attracted to.
Happy-go-lucky, rambling Vaughn plans to stay with his cousin at her beach house for a short time but his plans change forever when his cousin’s husband leaves the country with the family fortune.
When Jake offers the newly-poor Vaughn a job he immediately regrets his decision because he has trouble keeping his paws off his newest employee. To protect his shifter privacy, he needs Vaughn gone. And to help the man he’s learning to admire, Jake takes on the job of tracking the lost fortune and danger.
Warning: Contains a sexy “pretty boy” who’s smarter than he looks and a grouchy shapeshifter who can’t resist strong hands and a wicked tongue. Prepare yourself. This book is anything but tame.
