Morgan Dane is on a mission to find and rescue wild werewolves after a recent attack destroyed a neighboring pack. Winter has come and now their lives are in danger. He doesn't expect that the werewolf he finds half dead in the freezing water of the river will be his mate. An early snowstorm traps them together in an empty cabin, and Morgan now must nurse Terry back to health. The younger man can't even remember his last name and barely knows his own age, but he is aware of the connection between himself and Morgan, and eagerly accepts it. But his inner wolf is still demanding control, and the wolf escapes the cabin and wanders right into a hunter camp before Morgan can stop him. Morgan and Terry need to run for their lives from the hunters who want to catch them and skin them for their pelts, before they've had the chance to truly get to know each other.
