When Taurian’s clan contacts them, Karla knows that her time with Taurian is coming to an end. He doesn’t need her any longer, and even though he still seems keen to make things permanent between them, she’s not sure she’s up to the commitment.

But there may be no time for love and mating, when Taurian’s enemy is still after them.
