Javier was used to working alone. He liked it that way. As a shifter retriever, his job was to rescue fellow shifters like himself from dangerous situations. In the process of rescuing 12 shifter children from a human sex-trafficking ring, he wakes up after a nasty fall to see an attractive, hunky cowboy watching over him and the girls. This alpha seems to just know how to take care of people and any challenges that he encounters, including helping Javier.
