As the Mating Ceremony draws near, the Leader of the Novus Pack, Raider Black, will claim his love, Theodora Morrissey, before all of Novus. As the painstaking preparations are made, Theodora fears herself unable to be the strong Queen that the Novus Pack requires.
Adding to her self-doubt, the Lycan who attacked Theo and haunts her thoughts, is turned over to Novus. By Black’s decree, Theo will decide for herself if she’s ready to confront her rapist. What is meant as a kind gesture, adds fuel to the blaze of Theo’s uncertainty.
Can a pound of flesh heal a tortured soul?
A Lycan would kill without thought. Can she? Will she?
No matter her choice, will ghosts of the past forever prevent Theo from being the Queen that Black and Novus deserve?
