After fleeing an arranged marriage in a polygamist community in Oklahoma, Alyssa Franklin wants nothing more than to enjoy her early twenties, take some classes at the local college, and learn about the world outside the confines of her childhood pack. Embraced by the loving Masters family in Oregon, Alyssa is beyond grateful for her good fortune. Nothing can upset her new life, except maybe the scent of her mate wafting toward her at a local rodeo…
Tyler Evans has been sent from Alyssa’s Oklahoma pack to ensure she is indeed mated to one of the Masters. Blindsided, he’s completely unprepared to realize Alyssa is his mate. In a rash, split-second decision, he flees her presence, not wishing to upset the perfect life his mate is living. Tortured with the need to be with Alyssa and unprepared for his inability to avoid the pull she has on him, Tyler abandons his family in Oklahoma and treks to Oregon to claim his mate.
Michael Masters has been living in Spain for two years, knowing Alyssa is his mate and wishing to give her time to mature and experience life before claiming her. When he learns she believes another man is destined for her, he returns from abroad to claim his mate. Hoping she was mistaken, Michael treads lightly with his fingers crossed that Fate has not deemed it necessary to share her.
When these three souls collide, tension rises. None of them are prepared for or interested in a ménage. However, Fate has other plans. Can the three lovers, drawn to each other by a power they can’t deny, work together to become a family? Or will outside forces, both local and distant, tear them apart before they’ve had a chance to consummate their mating?
