Even without the imprint, Embry knew he would have loved her.
It wasn’t like when the others imprinted. No “gravity moves” or shining steel tethers.
It was soft and tender, growing with each shy look and tentative touch. It was a gentle, warm spring breeze that caressed the skin, curled around, and encompassed his very being.
Bella wasn’t utter perfection in his eyes. He saw the selfishness she fought, but that he encouraged when it came to being with him.
He’d seen her mistakes.
She’d seen his.
Unlike those others, he gave her unrestricted, unconditional love.
She gave him home.
