As Bailey’s transformation progresses, her sexual appetites become insatiable and aggressive. Draven tries to walk a thin line between being rough enough to please her, and causing her physical harm. He knows any memory of pain during this delicate process could make her turn away from him forever. His only concern is seeing her through the transformation safely.
Until Lenex brings him bad news – Alverez has escaped from where he was being held, and his team has ransacked headquarters. They have no idea what Alverez was looking for, but it seemed to be part of a larger plan. With Bailey still vulnerable to attack, Draven sends Lenex with four men to find Alverez and kill him.
But Alverez will be expecting an attack, and Draven won’t be there with his team to lead them this time. And Bailey’s pheromones are sure to attract any male nearby. Torn between leading his team and protecting his mate, Draven chooses to stay by Bailey’s side, anticipating an attack that will take her away from him.
