Snake-shifter Sophia Samson is on the run with a knife-wound to the gut after her last con went belly up. With a mob man hot on her tail and her wound not healing like it should, she seeks refuge in her mother's childhood hometown, Woodland Creek. She slithers in through the back door of the urgent care clinic and charms the handsome doctor into treating her.
The shifters of Woodland Creek turn to Desmond Callahan, MD when they suffer from unique medical conditions, but when Sophia sneaks into his office with silver poisoning, it's obvious she has no idea there are other shifters in their small town. Desmond can tell Sophia doesn't want him to know she's a shifter - and that's not the only thing she's hiding. As a puca, Desmond has a few tricks of his own up his sleeve and he's not going to let the captivating Sophia slip out of his life so easily.
This was a fun shifter story. Sophia runs back to her hometown with a knife wound, running from a mobster. She doesn't realize that there are other shifters, let alone a whole town full of them. She meets Desmond who immediately knows what she is and he fixes her up, then insists on helping her further. He's sweet and she is prickly. An entertaining story with some interesting shifters that you don't always read about. It seemed a little rushed, but it is a fun, quick read.
