And though the scars on his face and body are intimidating in his shifter form, on his human face they’re just… ugly.

Now Fitzgerald has to convince Kevin to stay with him in Barbados in spite of their rocky start because now that they’ve bonded he’ll die without his mate… literally. And there’s someone out there who knows that and is determined to use it to their advantage.
