Synopsis:
Five years ago, twenty-three-year-old panther shifter Sera Czedar left her home and her newly mated groom in a humiliating position after a mating ceremony gone wrong. She built a new life for herself in Varselles, the City of Outcasts where shifters exiled from their clans in the Seven Kingdoms can go for sanctuary.

Five years ago, panther shifter Levian Grayson was abandoned on the bonding bed by his bride, Sera. After years of tracking her, he arrives in Varselles, intent on staking his claim on her once and for all, even if it means hauling her over his shoulder just to make sure that happens.

Sera has always known her homecoming would eventually catch up with her one day. The one thing she can’t bear to do is hurt Levian, which will happen as soon as he finds out the reason she left him. Is she ready to take that path? Most of all, will Levian still want her when the truth comes out?

Excerpt

He settled her back on the counter again, this time parting her legs so he could stand between them and holding her in place. Gods, he could stare at his woman his whole damn life.
Tegue’s chair scraped on the wood floor, viciously yanking Levian thoughts—and eyes—from Sera. He turned to see Tegue push himself to his feet and carefully inspect his battered body for damage. Tegue winced, then turned huge blue eyes to Sera, unleashing a look that irritated Levian to no end. The kind that involved huge, wounded eyes and a slight pout in order to achieve some sort of pity.
What a toddler!
Levian felt Sera shift, and he clamped his hand tighter.
Tegue glanced at Levian’s hand, and when he realised he wasn’t getting any pity, he sighed and said, “Your father said you might say that. He wanted you to come home of your own free will, but when it seemed that wasn’t going to happen…. He was about to Summon you when the investigator came in with the news.”
She blinked, her eyes growing round once again. “He wanted to Summon me? My own father wanted to use that power to force me back home?”
“He is the Alpha.” Tegue stretched his legs, seeming oblivious to Sera’s increasing panic.
The only time Levian could remember her father Summoning her was when she was fifteen and she’d run off in the woods, preferring not to take part in his lessons on how to become Alpha. Those magic words from his lips had dragged her across the grass, slapping against trees until she found herself glaring into his bright blue eyes. Summoning was one hell of a bitch. The invisible bonds woven within each member in the clan ensured Summoning worked seamlessly.
Levian snuck his hand around her neck and began to massage the spot below her ear. He growled in approval when she leaned into his touch, her eyes closed. He could bet no one had touched her like this in the past five years, what with the way her back arched forwards. “Come on, let it out. You know you want to purr for me, Sera. See, no one can touch you like I do.” He chuckled when her eyes snapped open and she tried to scowl at him but failed miserably. “Your father really wants you home. He will do anything to bring you back. He kept throwing around things like ‘Summon her if you must’ and ‘Club her on the head and drag her back home if it comes to that.’”
She narrowed her eyes at him. “Are you threatening me, Levian?”
He shrugged. “I want you back home. With me.”
“You are not in a position to perform the Summoning on me.” A smile replaced the scowl on her face. A very smug smile.
Levian’s fingers halted. He cocked his head to one side, lips curved into a half-smile. “Aren’t I?”
She studied him through narrowed eyes. “No.”
Tegue snorted. “As a matter of fact, he is. Aren’t you, little brother?”
“Yes,” Levian said. “I am.”
A frown puckered her forehead, and he knew if he tried to kiss it away, he might end up losing his lips. And he needed them for later.
