Wild Lilies by Angel Nyx
"Pick a mate or I'll do it for you."
Unwilling to sacrifice her dreams of loving the man she commits her life to, Lily makes a drastic decision and disappeared into the night. For six years her life was untouched by her old pack, but all of that changed when he walked into Gathering Grounds, the coffee book shop she worked at.
He wasn't looking for a mate. He'd lived a hard life, there was blood on his hands, no woman would be able to handle the darkness that tainted his soul. When his Alpha hires him to track down his missing daughter he thought finding her in New Orleans would be the hard part. He had no idea she would be the woman who could bring him to his knees.
**Authors Note: Each book in the NOLA Shifters Series is a stand alone, they are interconnected. Each book ends with an HEA. Also, as the characters are shifters, there may be situations that wouldn't normally arise in a romance novel. The pull of a mate is something that is intrinsically written into their DNA. It is not something that can be fought or controlled. When a shifter meets their mate, the attraction is immediate and intense. As such, they may find themselves doing something that they never expected, even something that goes completely against their own moral code.
