Born into poverty and obscurity, Lexa worked harder than most to earn a place as a novice at the Savage Temple, where women trained in the art of pleasure heal the souls of battle-weary warriors. While others might be content to enjoy the luxury and prestige due a priestess of Luna, Lexa aspires to something greater — the honor of wearing the silver robes and the security that comes with being one of their world’s most powerful women. But first she must prove herself worthy by testing her strength against the Temple’s most infamous trainer, a near-feral wolf whose job it is to educate women in the art of controlling a warrior through submission.
Dejan doesn’t deal with novices. Time spent as a prisoner of the humans left his soul fractured and his beast far too close to the surface, making him dangerous but useful. When he accepts Lexa as his pupil he has no way of knowing the novice has the power to bring him to his knees. Their passion doesn’t fade when she’s promoted to the Temple’s elite circle, but the rules allow no involvement between a trainer and priestess. Caught between ambition and need, it’s only a matter of time before their forbidden affair threatens the lives they’ve fought to build.
