It doesn’t help that her jerk boss seems determined to make her life a living hell, and he refuses to let her check into strange deliveries being made to a local Atlantean-worshipping cult, the Azilians.
Super-soldier hybrid Magnus and his people are tasting true freedom for the first time. Still on the run from the ruthless Horatius Group, they’ve settled in the Pacific Northwest, hoping for a fresh start, including using the cover of the nearby Azilians.
When Lara’s investigation brings her face-to-face with the stunning Magnus, they find themselves drawn to each other, but both quickly realize something is happening in the woods around the hybrids’ new compound that may threaten not only the hybrids, but everyone in town.
Hybrid Marcus is conflicted. Every part of him is calling for him to be with the doe-eyed woman, but being with a human goes against everything he has vowed to fight. After all, humans were the ones that imprisoned his people and experimented on them.
When the pair are stranded together because of a storm, their mutual attraction threatens to explode, but the real threat is a deadly and cunning beast stalking them in the snow.
Marcus is forced to decide what’s more important, defending his people’s honor or protecting his own chance at happiness.
