Black Salmon Falls may be a small town, but it's big on secrets....
Rose came from a broken home and Paula, her aunt and the only family she had ever been able count on is dying. After leaving her abusive ex in Seattle and running from a life forever shattered, she moved in with her aunt, determined to start over and build a new life in Black Salmon Falls while also helping care for her in her last days.
Asher is the privileged child of royalty. The son of the chief of the Q'lapa Clan of werebears - the dominant clan in Black Salmon Falls. He is betrothed to Mariana, the daughter of the chief of the N'gasso clan - the second most dominant clan. Asher is not thrilled with his life, but he is loyal to his clan and will do everything - including marrying somebody he does not love - in the name of his people.
But when fate intervenes and Asher meets Rose, things begin to change. On the surface, they couldn't be more different. And yet, they apparently have more in common than they think. As they get to know each other, they both find something in each other they never expected. And as their affection for one another grows, it begins to cause strife within Asher's family and clan.
