On the surface Hamish has it all and because of the horror surrounding his birth, he possesses the respect of the entire Scottish nation. But underneath, where few are allowed, lurks a secret. Although well hidden, the furtiveness needed to keep others from discovering it also keeps him from committing fully to another.
One night he discovers a shocking secret about himself. Hamish doesn't put it all together until he sees Grace Strachan. Only then does he begin to understand what's going on. He's in heat and she is his mate. As his desire for her grows, he knows everything is on the line.
Establishing trust with another has never been easy, but Hamish must find a way or risk losing Grace forever. And that isn't an option.
