The MC is gone. I should have left with them, but I couldn’t.
Because she stayed.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been in love with my friend Shaundra.
But I can never have her.
She chose my brother, not me. And shifters mate for life.
I’ll never know the feel of her in my arms or the taste of her on my lips.
She’ll never accept me as the protector and provider for her and her kids.
It doesn’t matter that it’s hopeless--I’ll never choose another.
I’ll never leave her.
Shaundra is my mate.
