Taken by the Buck (Colorado Shifters, Book #2) by Kristen Strassel

When The Mate goes horribly wrong, can Chloe still find her fairy tale ending?

Doe shifter Chloe knows the perfect buck is waiting for her in the forest. But when it’s her turn to participate in The Mate, the ancient tradition of her people, she’s surrounded by deadly hunters instead.

Cane is a former rock star with a haunted past and a bigger secret. He’s come to Woodland Park to reset, but he can’t be himself—not even here. When his hunting friends surround a beautiful doe in the forest, he’s compelled to save her.

And convince her that she’s his mate.

But to do so, he must embrace his animal side, the part of himself he’s kept hidden his whole life. His family rejected the herd once. What will it cost him for this chance to love Chloe?
