After Tessa escaped from her old pack, her old life, she came to a new town to get away and hide. She came for safety, for freedom, to have a choice in what she did. What she didn't come for was her mate, to find out all the lies she'd be told, all the secrets that had been kept, things she never wanted.
When Nathan first saw her, first caught her scent, he didn't know whether to be more surprised that she was his mate or the fact he didn't know a new wolf was in town. No one got in or out without him knowing, especially not a wolf, and from the moment he laid eyes on her he knew she was trouble, he just didn't expect that she would be worth every single bit of it.
