Molly Buchanan is a lioness on the prowl. Unfortunately, since she's been prowling through the same town for her entire life, she's down to some pretty slim pickings in the dating department. But the minute she sets eyes on the new bachelor in town, her lioness starts to purr and plans to do some serious rubbing up against Grady Emerson. Newly arrived in Alpha, Washington, Grady just wants to settle in and do his job as the town's newest deputy. But even this rogue-bear sheriff knew Molly Buchanan was trouble the minute he laid eyes on her. She might be smoking hot, sharp as a tack, and funny as hell, but she is also his friend's younger sister, and there are some things a good man just doesn't do-no matter how much his bear might want to devour her.
