'Tis said of love that it sometimes goes, sometimes flies; runs with one, walks gravely with another; turns a third into ice, and sets a fourth in a flame: it wounds one, another it kills: like lightning it begins and ends in the same moment: it makes that fort yield at night which it besieged but in the morning; for there is no force able to resist it.
--Miguel de Cervantes
If the rough and tumble man at Ali's door is supposed to be his fate-ordained mate, then he has to wonder what in the Goddess' name Fate was thinking.
Ali has always dreamed of his spirit mate, someone classy, intelligent and romantic, but the man who faints in his doorway is anything but. Kalo is loud and pushy, with hair more suited to a caveman and manners to match---all wrapped up in one big package of you've got to be kidding me. Besides, Ali has responsibilities as mama bear to his den of shifters and that's where he needs to be. For Kalo, being rejected by his spirit mate won't be life-threatening. But there's something about Ali that intrigues him and touches his soul. He's ready to offer his already-engaged heart with no strings attached, for a chance to change Ali's mind.
