Pepper Peterson has a problem. He's about six foot four. Surly. His eyes glow in the dark, and he scares people just by breathing. She tried to give him the slip, and tried to throw him off her trail, but he had a nose like no other, and he wasn't going to back off no matter what she did.
Lucky her, she's got a werewolf for a watchdog, and he's the meanest one in town.
Quinn has been trying to explain to Pepper he isn't an actual wolf. He doesn't have a tail, and he doesn't howl at the moon, but he does have a problem. Because of an accident when the old mill collapsed, Pepper wasn't going to be human for much longer.
The moon was going to rise. Pepper's human life would soon end. The question eating away at Quinn was: Would she trust him enough to get her through it? And would he be strong enough to defend her until her transformation was complete?
He was about to find out.
