Dane is a lonely bear shifter who doesn't know if he'll ever find a mate.  Then one day he finds himself defending a fox from a brutal wolf attack.  He's found his mate—and the fox shifter is scared of him.

Will Dane ever earn the trust of his mate, a shy, handsome, suspicious man who's had little reason to ever trust anyone?  

Contains a honey-loving bear, a sweet, suspicious fox, gay uncles, a tiny bit of shifter politics, and enough food to shake a stick at.
