Maya Rawlings was orphaned and knows nothing of her family history. She’s spent her whole life feeling that there’s something missing. All she wants is to belong and to have a family of her own, the only problem with that is she’s not found a man she’s attracted to.
On the night of her 21st birthday, a strange mark appeared on the back of her hand, half a semi-circle within another. Then the nightmares began, scenes of fear, running for her life, death and destruction, all followed by the darkly erotic voice of a man offering her things she’s always dreamed of. Is he real or is she finally losing her mind?
Jaden Matthews has been on this earth for longer than he cares to remember. A loner who never settles in one place for too long. One night his life changes though as the mark appears on his hand that signifies his mate has been born. He now has 21 years to wait for her to mature and then the clock will start ticking. If he can’t find and bind her to him before the last full moon sets on her 26th birthday, he’ll not only lose his humanity, but also his immortality.
The only problem is he doesn’t know where to find her. Although he can talk to her in her dreams he has to be careful because she isn’t aware that there are more than humans walking the earth. He’s running out of time and patience, but he’s getting closer. Can he use his skills to get her to agree to the binding, thus saving himself or will he forever be destined to walk alone as the animal he becomes?
