Cole Andrews has only wanted one thing -- his destined mate. Family is everything to Cole and he can't wait to start one of his own. Now that he's in his thirties, he's starting to wonder if Mrs. Right is really out there or if she slipped through his fingers. He's seen every available woman in his small town of Ashton Grove and so far none of them are "the one." When he discovers a crashed car in the woods near his home in his wolf form, he follows the tantalizing smell of the human driver. Marin Thomas has a troubled past, and one that could catch up to her at any moment, but with just one sniff Cole knows that he'll do whatever it takes to keep her safe.

Mrs. Coulter Smith has blended a romantic and suspenseful tale. It is a page turner that keeps you reading till the very end. The characters are complex, emotional beings. You should read this story.

You will come to appreciate how this author blends not only the horrors that Marin will face, but also how she makes the secondary characters come alive within the pages of this book.
Marin pushed up Cole’s shirt, running her hands over his chest. His body was so incredible. She wanted to run her hands over every inch of him. Sitting up, she drew her shirt over her head. She knew she was still too skinny, but Cole didn’t seem to mind. He traced the edge of her bra running his finger lightly over her breast. Being a DD had its benefits. Cole seemed to be especially appreciative of them.
Marin scooted down his legs until she was standing at the foot of the bed. She removed her boots and socks and slipped out of her jeans. Standing before him in nothing but her bra and panties, she felt exposed. No one had seen her like this except Stefan and his friends. No one had ever seen her like this voluntarily. As far as she was concerned, Cole was her first. He was the first man she had chosen to be with.
Cole stripped out of his clothes except for his boxer briefs. Marin climbed back onto the bed and lay down next to him. He gently ran his hand down her side to her hip. Pushing her onto her back, he leaned over her and claimed her lips in a searing kiss. Marin moaned into his mouth and wrapped her arms around him.
Cole pulled back and looked into her eyes. “You’re so beautiful.”
Marin smiled shyly and pulled him back down for another kiss. While they kissed, Cole’s hand drifted up her abdomen and softly cupped her breast. Marin arched into him wanting more. She had never felt so alive in her life. Cole pressed his erection against her. On instinct, Marin raised her hips to meet his. It was almost Cole’s undoing.
Lifting his head to look down at her, he asked, “Are you sure about this?”
“More sure than I’ve ever been of anything,” Marin responded softly.
