Still reluctantly holding a candle for Sabine Flemming, the Lightbearer who shared her magic with him, Xander Wulf is determined to leave his past behind once and for all. He decides to take temporary respite with a tribe of humans trying to survive the long, cold winter. There he meets Adelle Poema, a shifter with a mysterious past and a determination to kill the chief’s human son.
Adelle’s broken, or at least that’s what it feels like. She’s lost everything, and her life has become defined by a burning need for revenge. Killing the chief’s son is the only way she can move forward and let go of her past.
Until she meets Xander. Now Adelle must choose … Revenge or love?
