Marrok was unintentionally a part of the uprising of werewolves against their vampire masters. He loved Lord Tristan Fenrir, but he cannot protect his mate after their affair is discovered. He is tortured and sold to another house before he can warn them of the coming attack. Months later, Tristan's father is dead, the pack of werewolf servants are gone, and Tristan is lord of the estate. He bought Marrok back, and he intends to get his revenge for having his heart played with. Though Tristan isn't the same man he was when Marrok last saw him, he knows his gentle mate is in there somewhere, and he refuses to be broken. Their time might be cut short when a hidden enemy in the house makes himself known, and Tristan is suddenly forced to rely on Marrok, or else he could be killed before he and Marrok have the chance to forgive each other.
