When an injury forces bull rider Ty Conroy home to his family ranch, he comes face-to-face with a big secret. A tiny version of himself. His son.

…but three to make a family.

Moving to Ty’s ranch was supposed to be just a temporary move for Marissa and the baby. Instead it’s proving to be a temptation for her, and if appearances are to be believed, for Ty as well. But Marissa has to resist, for their son’s sake. Because nothing—and no one—can keep a rodeo cowboy in one place. And when he leaves this time, she’ll be damned if he takes her heart with him…again.

Wanting to forget the magical world from whence she came, lightbearer Carley Santiago seeks sanctuary in the human world. But when she meets shifter Reid Hennigan, she finds her heart is not so easily controlled. As passion turns to love, Carley finds that keeping secrets and hiding from her past could be dangerous for them both – fatally dangerous. Welcome back to Tami Lund’s magical world in Light Beyond the Darkness, Book 3 of her paranormal romance series, Lightbearer.

Carley was once the premier chef for the King of the Lightbearers. But when her mate pushes her over a cliff and she miraculously survives, she flees the coterie, knowing he will want to finish the job. She figures hiding in the human world is the best way to ensure her safety.

While working as a chef at one of Chicago’s top restaurants, she meets Reid Hennigan, a lone shifter running from his own past. Carley tries to push him away—she wants nothing to do with anyone from the magical community, even a persistent shifter who insists he only wants to show her pleasure.

Reid Hennigan is another reject from Quentin Lyons’ defunct pack. When he received word his pack master was dead, Reid ran away, having no interest in being forced to be subservient to another abusive pack master. Unfortunately for Reid, shifters are hardwired to be part of a pack, and soon he is wandering aimlessly through life, with no clear idea of what to do next. When he stumbles upon the shy lightbearer working at a restaurant in Chicago, he discovers a new lease on life.

Passion turns to love, and Reid figures his life is pretty damn perfect, despite no longer belonging to a pack. But Carley has secrets of her own, and her secrets could be fatal—to both of them.
