Ben Davis is a vegetarian, a Buddhist, and…a werewolf. Sorta. For the last three years, Ben has controlled his lycanthropy by avoiding team sports, meditating, and doing yoga. Because of his iron physical and mental control, he doesn’t change into his less attractive form.
Danielle Linden is a reporter, Ben’s writing partner, and… a survivor. Five years ago, she divorced her abusive husband and never looked back. She learned her lesson about love and attraction though, and guards herself against both. The only guy able to crack her emotional walls is Ben, and he’s just a good looking teddy bear who wouldn’t hurt a fly…or so Dani thinks.
When a frantic father bursts into the newsroom and claims that his daughter was kidnapped by a werewolf, Dani begins an investigation that soon plunges but her and Ben into the dangerous world of the local wolf pack–a world filled with Pagan rituals and animalistic lusts.
Ben fears for Dani’s life and his own secret but when Dani gains the perilous attention of the alpha wolf of the local pack, he realizes he must give in to the dark side of his soul…and in doing so, risk losing the woman he loves forever.
