Tristan Cane has been trapped in a war against himself; not quite animal but not quite man. For years he has been surrounded by people but always alone, and the one person who could help him died. He was left to believe he needed to stay isolated and closed off – until he meets a headstrong woman named Nikole who gives him a run for his money. Now he has a choice to make. Will he let her in? Or is it impossible to tame the beast.
