Snake-shifter Sophia Samson is on the run with a knife-wound to the gut after her last con went belly up. With a mob man hot on her tail and her wound not healing like it should, she seeks refuge in her mother's childhood hometown, Woodland Creek. She slithers in through the back door of the urgent care clinic and charms the handsome doctor into treating her.
The shifters of Woodland Creek turn to Desmond Callahan, MD when they suffer from unique medical conditions, but when Sophia sneaks into his office with silver poisoning, it's obvious she has no idea there are other shifters in their small town. Desmond can tell Sophia doesn't want him to know she's a shifter - and that's not the only thing she's hiding. As a puca, Desmond has a few tricks of his own up his sleeve and he's not going to let the captivating Sophia slip out of his life so easily.
Then, he took a step toward her and her breath caught. Every step held a lush promise.
His movements were smooth, confident, and powerful, like a stalking predator. He raised himself onto the bed and, on all fours, prowled over her.
“I want you,” he said. It sounded like a warning.
The pulse between her legs turned into a throb. “I want you, too.”
In answer, she tugged on his arms, trying to bring him down to her, but it was like trying to move a stone statue.
“You don’t understand, Sophia.” His hand slid up her body, starting at her hip, across her stomach, encircling her breast, tickling her collarbone, to finally slide behind her neck, leaving a trail of fire in its wake. His touch demanded more from her than she’d ever given anyone. “I want you to be mine.”
The possessiveness in his every syllable and movement terrified her. Though, not because she wanted to run away from it, but because she wanted to surrender to it. He hadn’t asked her a question, but he waited for an answer.
“Desmond,” she began.
“Don’t,” he ground out. Two fingers pressed against her lips. “Don’t overthink it. Don’t worry about everything that could go wrong. Don’t assume the worst of me. Don’t examine all the angles.”
