Collared and controlled, Shifters are outcast from humanity. But waiting within are passions that no collar can contain in this novel in the New York Times bestselling Shifters Unbound series. When a female Shifter comes to town seeking refuge, feline Shifter Sean Morrissey claims the new arrival, expecting a submissive little she-wolf. Instead, he finds a beautiful woman who looks him straight in the eye without fear, stirring the mating frenzy within him. As a half-Fae, half-Shifter, Andrea Gray is used to looking out for herself. But in order to relocate to a new Shiftertown and escape an unwanted mate claim, Andrea must accept a new mate. A Guardian seems as good a candidate as any, but Andrea's intense attraction to Sean is something she never expected-and a perilous complication for a woman with a troubled past.
