Nat let out a shaky breath before sitting up and wiping her arm across her face to get rid of the tears. Needing to step away from the pain of the past, she glanced at the remnants of the doors.
“How in the world did you manage that?”
He shook his head, looking just as bewildered as she felt. “I don’t really remember it. I just knew I needed to get to you.”
He finally looked up and met her gaze.
Nat’s heart skipped like a schoolgirl with her first crush.
“You needed me, so I came.”
The conflict and need in his dark eyes reminded her this was nothing like any crush she’d ever had. This was him. This was the man she was meant to be with. Her mate.
“I’d better get back to my room and let you get back to sleep.”
She shook her head. “Don’t. Please.” The thought of falling asleep and reliving the worst day of her life again had her chest tightening. “I… I still need you.”
When she wins a trip to the Crimson Moon Hideaway Resort, Detective Natalie Greenleaf is thrilled. Being an Elf hidden in the human world can be exhausting and a vacation to a resort where paranormals are free to be themselves is just what she needs. One whole week to forget about life, cases, and criminals.
Bear shifter Gage Loneclaw is used to being alone. It’s been that way since being exiled from his clan at a young age for refusing to follow orders. With his bees to keep him company, he is perfectly content to stay on his quiet piece of land, selling honey at the local farmer’s market. When he gets the call to let him know he’s won a week at the five-star resort, he almost turns down the offer, but a small, nagging voice in the back of his thoughts convinces him to go.
When the past comes back to haunt both Nat and Gage, the pair find they have much in common. While neither of them had even thought of finding a mate, Fate does what She will. Winning Paradise may have been part of Her plan, but they’ll have to survive the week if they’re going to have a chance at a future.
