Despite his family's psychic gifts, Derek Gabriel kept his distance from the dangers of the supernatural world--until an attack by a rogue wolf shifter stripped away his humanity. The change didn't drive him insane, but the cultural bias he faces as recently-turned shifter might. And it doesn't help that he's fallen for the daughter of the most powerful wolf in the country.
Almost from the moment she was born, Nicole Peyton planned her escape from the strict confines of elite shapeshifter society, an old-fashioned world where women are valued most for their bloodlines and bank accounts. In New Orleans, she has a bar she loves, friends in decidedly low places, and smoldering sexual tension with the incredibly attractive--and perfectly unsuitable--Derek.
Their forbidden longing erupts into unbridled passion--until Nick's sister burns into town with a Conclave strike team hard on her heels. Saving her means that, for once, Nick must play by their society's rules...and give up the man she loves. But Derek has another idea--work together, and they can do more than save her sister.
They can change their world.
