Hunter is still mourning the death of his mate, but being the alpha of the Alfheim pack and raising his young daughter alone has left him very little time to grieve. Refusing help, he struggles to find the balance to be the ruler his pack demands, but also the father his daughter needs.
After a run in with a rogue wolf, Ava is thrown into a strange new world where her life as a pediatric surgeon in Seattle is nothing but a distant memory. Forced to remain in the Alfheim pack until she’s cleared to return to the only life she’s ever known, she’s put up in the alpha’s house, but finds herself unable to ignore the arrogant, prickly male who pushes all her buttons and inflames her heart.

Alone in the dark, he wandered into the living room and sat on the couch, trying to clear his head of Ava. He wasn’t supposed to be with anyone else. He didn’t want anyone else, but his wolf, it seemed, had other ideas.
The sound of creaking floorboards made his head jerk up.
“I’m sorry.” The words were barely a whisper, yet his wolf had perked up and listened. He gritted his teeth, trying to ignore it. “I guess I fell asleep.”
Ava appeared out of the shadows, her hair piled on top of her head, her clothes rumpled from sleep. He stared at her, studied every little nuance. She was tall for a female, her hair looking more strawberry than blonde in the near darkness.
She took a step closer to him, but stopped. She glanced over her shoulder then back to him. “I can go back upstairs…”
“No.” He cleared his throat and looked away. “You don’t have to leave.”
He heard her pad a little closer, her feet coming into view in his periphery. “I just wanted to thank you for letting me stay.”
He glanced at her, narrowing his eyes on her face. Fuck, he was attracted to her—his wolf more so. Her nostrils flared delicately, drawing in the scent of his lust. Her brow furrowed but then smoothed out.
She shifted her weight from one foot to the other. “Well, I know I’m invading your personal space here. I don’t want to, believe me, but your mother is a hard woman to say no to.”
Yeah, didn’t he know it. Now that Natasha was gone, there was no female figure in power. His mom had taken control of that title temporarily…until he found another mate. He didn’t want another mate, though.
Ava, his wolf whispered. What the fuck was he thinking? He wasn’t ready to replace Natasha.
“I also wanted to let you know that if you ever want to take a break, I’m more than happy to look after Grace for you.”
He gave her an incredulous look. “Do you have a lot of experience with children?”
“I’ve had my fair share.”
“Your fair share?” he asked, baiting her.
“I’ll have you know I’m the top pediatric surgeon in Seattle,” she said is a quiet voice.
“A doctor, huh?”
She met and held his stare, but said nothing more.
“Asshole,” she muttered under her breath.
