Going against her better judgement, she teams up with Gene to stop her families tyranny. As they begin to work together, Talia finds herself falling for the alpha. The thought of trusting Gene terrifies her, and she can't help but wonder if he will betray her too.
Daniel McKinley has always been a loner. His father trained him to be an alpha through brute force--not through people skills. Now that Daniel's older brother is alpha instead, he's become even more of an outcast. Despite their differences, the wolf in him craves the acceptance of his brother--his alpha. While trying to prove himself, he is involved in an accident that draws a human into the line of fire. Unwilling to see an innocent hurt by the enemy wolves after him and his pack, he vows to protect her. Nora is kind, caring, and strong. His past is dark and he fears if she learns too much it will scare her away. Although, he tries to keep his distance, there is something about her that draws him in. Can he keep Nora safe and earn his brother's trust in the process?
