Alpha Wolfhound Dean is heartsick. His mate has come back to him, miraculously alive, but Joey Green, the human who used to tease and play with him, barely recognizes Dean. Tortured, brainwashed and turned into a werewolf, Joey wants revenge on Dean for atrocities that never happened. Dean will do anything he can to heal his mate. Joey had his mind and memories twisted and warped. He doesn't know what is real or fake. All he knows is that he wants to kill Dean as much as he wants the man to claim him. He feels a lust so great that it draws him to the man who should be his enemy, but he doesn't know what to do with it, other than give in. As Joey comes to realize he was brainwashed, and Dean never abandoned him, can their relationship survive what Joey's experiences have turned him into? Because Joey is no longer the same man Dean fell in love with.
