Renoir Delacroix is a forensic photographer working for the Dallas County Police. He's well off the beaten track when he snaps a photo of something big and monstrous out in the woods. When it grabs him, he thinks he's a dead man until it changes into the most brutally handsome man he's ever seen, even with the burn scars. Calvin, tries to explain himself while Renny is tied to a bed. Something about being mated and never wanting to hurt him? Not that Renny cares since his body is so hot and flustered that Renny is willing to overlook the strangeness of having amazing sex with a man he's just met--a man who can shift into a wolf. What's not so amazing is the hunters who are after both of them, and when Calvin rushes off to rescue a friend, leaving Renny alone and vulnerable, he might not make it back before someone comes to take Renny's life.
