Paige Donovan is an ambitious college graduate who aspires to reach the top of the corporate ladder. She’s climbing fast when given the promotion of a lifetime at a prestigious fashion magazine in New York City. Her bright future comes to an unexpected halt after news of her father’s death. She inherits his old cabin in the Colorado Rockies and just when she thinks her luck couldn’t get any worse, she has a car accident in the mountains and awakens in the small, remote community of Black River. Soon she’s engulfed in the mystical world of Varulv—wolves descended from 12th century Scandinavia and blessed by Norse gods with the ability to appear human. Paige is desperate to return home, but never expects to fall for her rescuer, Riley Gray, a charming young werewolf from England who offers her an alternate future with his pack. Now she must choose between the career she’s always wanted and the love she’s always dreamed. (via Goodreads)

EXCERPT

"Yeah, Quinn and I share it."
I looked around the room again and then back at the man taking care of me. He had a hopeful look on his face, but I noticed he fidgeted his hands anxiously.
"Where are you sleeping?"
"On the sofa."
"So, Quinn will be sleeping here with me?"
This time he hesitated. "Um, no. See, she figured you'd want the room to yourself for privacy, so she's sleeping on the loveseat."
I gave him a perplexed look. "But there's another bed in here. I wouldn't mind sleeping in the room with her." Riley just looked at me. "I don't want to put you guys out." I set the bowl on the nightstand. "That's why I should leave."
The moment I tried to pull the blankets off, Riley's hands shot out to stop me. "No! Don't go!" My body froze and I stared at him. "You're not well. You need to rest," he said as he tucked the blankets around me.
He was so close, and I noticed for the first time he had a clean woodsy scent like the forest after a rainstorm. His hair was within close reach and my fingers inced with the desire to comb through it. I wondered if it felt as nice as it looked.
"I don't care about sleeping on the sofa. Trust me. I've slept in worse places."
I frowned at that last comment. We didn't speak while I ate my first cereal. Riley sat on the floor again, his arm resting casually on the bed. I glanced at it and noticed the tattoo on his shoulder. I couldn't read the words when I saw it in Bobby's store, but now I could read it clearly: What goes around comes around.
"You believe in karma?"
Rile looked at his tattoo. He grinned. "Yeah, do you?"
