Shape shifters Chiara and Aros are lovers and soul mates. Aros is a powerful werewolf while Chiara is a beautiful and potent were-lynx. Mid-Winter has come and the two lovers, together in the forest, are distracted when rapacious men surround them in a trap. Spurred into sudden fury, Aros flees—only to realize his lover has not escaped with him. Worse, in the aftermath of rage, Aros succumbs to an irresistible instinct for winter hibernation.
Yet even in his slumber, Aros is aroused by thoughts of Chiara. Fighting against instinct, he shakes off his winter sleep and, catching the fresh scent of her, begins a relentless hunt for his beloved.
A human named Gero discovers the naked, unconscious body of the beautiful Chiara and soon takes her to his cabin in the woods. After losing his father to a werewolf, he is hell bent on seeking vengeance, and will do anything to rid the world of all shape shifters. He doesn’t realize what Chiara is as word reaches him of a werewolf on the prowl…
Will Aros and Chiara be reunited? Or will Gero forever separate them in his blind quest for revenge?
