After twelve years in Ireland working for the powerful Kin High Council, Aislinn Redding returns to the remote Australian bush she once called home. Rest and relaxation are just what the doctor ordered, but powerful nightmares stalk Aislinn at every turn and not even the space behind her eyelids is safe.
For over a decade, Tobias Greenwood worshipped the sound of Aislinn's laughter inside his memory. Now, she's back – but the reality of her presence is far different from that of his dreams. To make matters worse, her scent sparks a primal reckoning that threatens not only Aislinn's life, but Tobias' sanity.
Determined to make a new life for herself among the pack, Aislinn dismisses Tobias' hostility as nothing more than a grown man's tantrum. If he couldn't be bothered to call or write during her long absence, then why should she care what he thinks of her now? She shouldn't. She doesn't.
Every flutter of Aislinn's lashes insists she's full of secrets, but Tobias can't keep his head on his shoulders long enough to work out what they might be. When danger surfaces in the otherwise peaceful bush, he knows in the depths of his soul that she's involved – though which side of the fence Aislinn sits on remains a mystery. Only one thing is certain; Tobias and Aislinn must either address the yawning divide between them… or sentence everyone they care about to a grisly death.

About the Author
Hello! My name is Samantha Marshall and I’m an author of speculative fiction, a mother to two tiny dictators, an artist, a keen drinker of chai tea and, in my spare time, a unicorn.
I’ve been living stories as long as I can remember, telling them from the moment I could talk and writing them from the moment I could clumsily grip a crayon. Where I go, stories follow, like glitter on concert night. I see potential in things both strange and normal, am struck by inspiration in often unlikely places.
I believe in writing to the best of my ability, breathing life into my characters, always pushing the proverbial envelope, and dragons.
Won't you come on a ride?
