A wolf on the edge, deadly shifter political games, and an unexpected attraction.
Sloane Wyman is haunted by her past and she'll let nothing get in the way of her future. She's vowed to defend her pack as long as there is breath in her lungs.
Benedict MacKinnon can't trust the beast within. Not since it burst forth and nearly cost him everything. But when his brother and mate are accused of murder, he's willing to put everything on the line. Benedict must stand before the Supreme Council in their defense, even if it costs him his life.
Lying and scheming enemies eager to see him spiral out of control test his resolve at every turn. Sloane, as his back-up, is more of a hindrance than a help thanks to the unwanted primal attraction that leaves his inner wolf rumbling.
As they become targets in a game they don't know the rules, and the clock ticks down on their deadline, can they outsmart their enemies? Will they allow themselves to unite via the mate bond? Or will their attempts to save those they love meet a bloody end?
