Veterinarian Lena Windsor grew up expecting to be mated to shape-shifter Alex James and his brothers, Joe and Will, when she finished university, but when military vet Alex leaves the three of them behind to re-enlist, she builds a new life for herself, eventually coming home to take over her fathers' practice in Harmony, where she reconciles with Joe and Will. One day, Lena begins to suspect that someone has been prowling around her house while she's at work and uses a nanny cam to find the culprit.
She's shocked to see a very changed Alex, who is dealing with a severe war injury by bonding, in wolf-dog form, with the stray dog she adopted who has a similar injury. She'd never turn away an injured animal, not even when he's also the man who broke her heart. Can she help him to heal without falling in love with him again? Note: There is no sexual relationship or touching for titillation between or among siblings.
