Alan Shifflett left his old pack due to an inherited mutation that makes him a violent
freak. He lives a dull life farther north, suppressing his shifts. But when his father can no
longer run Moonlight Diner due to failing health, Alan is compelled to rejoin what’s left
of his pack in Florida and face his weakness.
Shelley Fields, once a spoiled high school beauty queen, has dedicated her life to helping
her pack. In public, she ridiculed Alan because of peer pressure, but secretly, she longed
for her mate. When he returns, she confesses her true feelings, but Alan has no intention
of staying where he doesn’t belong.
Meanwhile, Curtis—his rival—has a score to settle, and threats from a rival pack are
standing everyone’s fur on end. Terrified of the beast inside, Alan is desperate to return
to his safe life, but is leaving his mate, kin, and pack in danger worth the price?
