Miranda Hsin is a grad student with a goal: grab her mountain lion samples and get the hell out of the woods. She doesn't mind nature and she's great at tracking her quarry, but there've been some strange footprints—barefoot human footprints—in a stretch of forest that should be free of people. She's used to having all the answers, but suddenly she's without a clue.
In danger of being banished from his pride, Gabriel Fournier came to the forest to forget his brother's mate. Now he's finally got his eye on a woman who can make him forget all about Hera, and Gabriel has a chance at happiness…if only the two of them can put enough faith in their love to shake off Miranda's advisor, a woman intent on using Gabriel as a science project.
