Susan Fuller has been in love with Sebastian Black since she first met the bear shifter, but because of her actions, he’d left town and hadn’t returned. Despite ten years of absence, she has never given up hope that he would one day come home to his family and to her. When war breaks out between the feline and bear shifters in her home town, Susan is sent away for her protection and takes the opportunity to travel east to Malsum Pass, Vermont, Sebastian’s last known location.
After being betrayed by those closest to him, Sebastian Black has made his home with the wolf pack of Malsum Pass. Often referred to as Black Bastard due to his surly nature, he’s given a wide berth and he prefers it that way. His greatest wish is to be left alone so when Susan Fuller, a pest from his past shows up practically on his doorstep, Sebastian is less than thrilled. But the more time he spends with Susan, the more he feels himself changing… Can her love mend this wounded bear and bring him home?
