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.
