William Steele has been captured after going out on a hunting mission. His assignment was to find Jules Scarlet, a man he'd once considered a brother, and then kill him. Effectively putting him out of his misery for being cursed by the alpha of the forest. The wolves take him, however, and when William sees Julian, the man appears in perfect health and very happy with his new mate. All the while, another wolf, Leofrick, is showing a lot of interest in William's well being. William can't help that he's interested and finds Leo to be very attractive, even with the three thick claw mark scars running down his face. William is forced to confront everything he's ever known as he becomes closer and closer with Leo and becomes the man's mate. But when Leo is captured, William must pretend to still be a hunter in order to keep him alive, putting his and Leo's fragile new relationship in danger.
