It’s time to put away silly ideas about whether or not you should be an Alpha and accept that it was never up to you in the first place. You can’t protect what’s yours unless you claim it and take your rightful place.
Chase Coleman is content with the life he’s made for himself as Sheriff of a sleepy little West Texas town. He might have walked away from his role as the Alpha apparent of his home pride but he didn’t regret making the choice to live as an out gay man.
Paxton Summers could see that Chase was the Alpha of the town’s shifters whether he wanted to accept the title or not. Once he realizes that he and the sexy sheriff are fated mates, it becomes his mission to make Chase see he never had to choose between his destiny and being true to himself—because Copper Creek was exactly where he was meant to be.
Chase just needs to see that he hadn’t left his future behind at all, instead all along he’d been Chasing Fate.
