Lyra Clemmons is desperate for a job, so she jumps at the opportunity when she sees an ad for a nanny. Finding her employer to be a hot, single dad with an adorable infant was an unexpected perk. Of course, those hot glances he gives her have her wondering if there could be more between them. Timber Mahogany is the leader of the Montana Maul, a clan of bear shifters protecting what’s theirs. But it's time for a rebellion when the antiquated bear council tells him he can’t have his fated mate because she’s a human. There’s no way he’s giving up his curvy goddess. Lyra knows a time will come when the love of her life will bring freedom to all the bears secretly living with human mates. But will he have to sacrifice his life to get what he wants? If the council has its way, both Lyra and Timber will be the prime examples of what happens when the law is disobeyed.
