Elija Austen is on a mission to prevent the destruction of his family's pack at the hands of a rival pack. Nowhere in that mission is there room for finding his mate. But when he finds him in enemy territory, helping them, he has to act. John Butcher is a veterinarian, and he takes his job seriously. He never even knew werewolves existed before he was kidnapped and brought to a pack to treat a sick omega, but now that he's here, he will do what he can. Then he discovers that these werewolves have no intention of letting him leave alive, and the man who saves him, who happens to be a gorgeous shifter himself, doesn't believe that John was just an innocent victim. John has to decide whether or not he can go back to his old life, or risk everything for the one person who makes his blood run hot, who looks at him like he's the enemy.
