When Sarah walks in, he's both surprised and confused at the intense attraction between them. She smells human. It's impossible for her to be his mate. Thinking she's another woman he can't have, he hesitates, but in the end, he can't pass up spending at least one night with her.
Grief and betrayal bring the two lovers back together, though their secretive pasts follow, pushing them further apart. Sarah must learn to trust Sean, and embrace her true spirit, or Sean may not win the fight against his own demons.
