Everything can change in the blink of a dark-adapted eye.
Fern Mansfield drags one of her pack-mates out to find more of their kind, but Gabriel Devlin is sure it won't happen. However, at a local bar, a young woman with a feline way of moving grabs their attention. She must be like them, so Fern thinks - normal people don't have three eyelids, nor a skin-burning itch on the backs of their hands where claws want to grow. And usually, what Fern wants, she gets. Even if she has to commit murder to make a point.Cressida Naismith doesn't want to belong to anyone - nor any pack - but becomes the prize fought for by two sides of a fast-dwindling group of shape-shifters. The pack doesn't have an alpha male but if it did, Alexander Butler would be it. He's more than willing to have his fun with Cress, especially if it means leaving the increasingly difficult-to-deal-with Fern out in the cold, but one thing stands in his way: the fact Fern is more than willing to commit murder to make a point.
