There is no such thing as magic, or sexy shifters. Or… is there?

Moira Graham’s car breaks down in the tourist town of Kotoyeesinay, Wyoming. She’s on the run. Again. A crazy billionaire wants to possess her ability to predict the future, but it’s not a “gift.” It’s simple guesswork. Magic doesn’t exist. And this quirky town—which uses elves, fortune tellers, and fairy-tale gimmicks to draw tourists in—isn’t helping.

Roving carpenter Chance McKennie is a prehistoric shifter on the lookout for a mate. Unfortunately, people fear his lion, and don’t stick around long enough to get to know the man. He thought his luck would change in Kotoyeesinay, but his skills aren’t needed in this magical sanctuary town with creatures of myth and legend on every block.

When Moira bumps into him, she’s almost willing to believe in the magic of this place. But it’s going to take more than a red-hot handyman and some glowy lights to save her from ruthless hunters.

Chance is determined to protect his mate and help her find the magic in her blood. But even a top predator can’t guess the lengths to which a desperate billionaire will go to get what he wants.

Moira Graham’s life changed the day she played a fortune teller at a Renaissance Fair. Lawrence Witzer came for a reading repeatedly and offered Moira a job at one of his companies with a huge salary, an offer she quickly turned down. Witzer wants Moira because he is convinced she is the real thing and will be an asset to him. When she disappears, he spends the next three years searching for her—and she spends that time running.

When Witzer almost catches her at her last location, she runs again only this time her beat up old car finally breaks down outside of Kotoyessinay, a town that is a sanctuary for those in need and a town that first appeared in book one. Knowing that she will need money for the repairs, she seeks a job. While at a diner the owner asks one of his patrons, Chance McKennie, to accompany her to a place to stay.

Like Moira, Chance has spent most of his life running. His animal is scary to anyone who sees it and he is desperate to find his mate, so he will be on the road again—maybe. He doesn’t immediately scent that Moira is his mate since she is covered in oil and grease, but the next day when they meet up there is no doubt about it. He has finally found his true mate, but he has to go slow. Moira has magic, but is unaware of it and has no belief in shifters or any other paranormal creature. She also has no belief in magic.

Moira knows she is bringing danger to everyone around her because Witzer will not give up and she was right. What she didn’t consider was that her mate and the town itself would not allow anything to hurt her. What happens between her and Chance, I am sure you can figure out for yourself and whether she connects with her magic or not, you will have to find out on your own.

Although this book was very similar to book one a shifter seeking a mate, a human running for her life, the characters were different. This book was equally wonderful and well worth the time and money necessary to read it. An added bonus is we also get a glimpse of what happened to Jackie and Trevor from book one.
