Her confidence is shaken when new employee Anton Gaspar appears. One look at the mysterious tiger shifter spells trouble for Marci and for her sex-crazed lynx.

That is, until she catches a glimpse of a golden bear with pale brown eyes, watching her in the distance, and all at once, her stomach gets tied up in the best kind of knot.
