Owen was born into a Were family, and like those before him, he is expected to turn on the full moon of his twenty-first birthday. And there are especially high expectations concerning Owen’s shift from boy to wolf, given that his birthday falls on the night of the full moon itself.
But when the full moon rises on that fated night, nothing happens. While others around him change, he stays the same, forced to run for his life from the angry pack. Needless to say, Owen is a disappointment to his family.
But then a mysterious and sexy stranger with wickedly tempting eyes comes to stay at Owen’s mother’s boarding house, a stranger regarded as suspicious by the clan, who apparently knows that there is far more to Owen than his failure to shift...

He nodded again, then walked around to the other side of the bed. I sucked in some air when I felt his weight settle beside me. I turned my head and was a little startled to see his gaze turned toward me. “You called me an Alpha.”
“Yes. You…act like one…but you’re a hunter. How can you be both?”
