Rachel Campbell is doing just fine on her own. The forty-seven-year-old divorced single mother of a nearly grown teenager, she’s also a shape shifter. She isn’t opposed to the idea of love, but she isn’t looking for it, either. But then state trooper Lee Harrison moves in across the street. He couldn’t be more wrong for her on paper, but he’s so attractive and interesting, ever-cautious Rachel is tempted to throw her own rules for dating to the wind.
Lee wasn’t expecting his neighbor to be a sexy bookworm, but that’s exactly what she turned out to be. She’s also twelve years his senior and has a serious bias against getting involved with law enforcement officers. Nonetheless, he’s compelled to try to break through her defenses. One of the good guys, he’s a man with paranormal abilities he’d prefer not to have. Little does he know that proving how trustworthy he is to Rachel is only the first obstacle they have to overcome to find a happily ever after.
