Moore doesn't want anything from the council. They weren't there when he and his friends needed them the most, and now that they're reaching out, he takes great pleasure in throwing that back in their faces.
At least until he realizes his mate works for them.
Jolyn knew Moore was his mate since the first moment he saw him. He kept it to himself, since Moore is technically an enemy of the council, but he doesn't know what to do.
When Moore and his people need help, he can't avoid reaching out to the council, no matter how little he likes it. Meeting his mate, who works and lives with the council assassins, means Moore will have to play nice.
Is that possible in a world where people are still locked in cages and tortured?
