Hands full taking care of his clan, the last thing Reid Carver needs is a woman poking her cute little nose into his affairs. But when Tammy refuses to back down—and shows the courage to stand up to him—he can't resist the allure of the curvy city girl. And when a rival clan thinks to use her to force his paw, he'll show them why you never piss off a Kodiak or threaten what's his. Tammy is convinced that all men are scum, even gorgeous ones like Reid. She knows that he's hiding something—something big. She just never expected a real bear hiding underneath all those yummy muscles. But when the truth comes out and he tries to scare her off with a roar, she shows him that it's not just bears who have bite.
