Dante Bane needs a night off so his wolf can howl. During his romp, a mysterious stranger joins him for a night of passion. Their encounter leaves Dante smitten, but Gwen’s stalker has returned and she needs Dante’s help.
When Dante enlists the assistance of his uncle, the owner of Shift, Inc., Nathaniel brings Altan King with him. King captures Dante’s eye, but while Dante defends Gwen, he discovers the man he had his midnight tryst with has been under his nose all along.
With danger abounding and two men vying for his love, Dante must protect Gwen and not succumb to his heart’s longings.
“I know you’re there. I caught your scent. I’ve watched you dance under the moon.” His voice was like silk against Dante’s skin, with a low resonance that shivered his insides. “Forgive me for not announcing myself as is the custom, but you were so spectacular, I couldn’t take my eyes off you.”
Dante willed himself to human form. The man had still not faced him. Scars striped the stranger’s back. White marks showed the torture this man had endured for someone’s pleasure. “Who are you? Turn around.”
“No, my lord. I can’t reveal myself to you.”
That voice. It nearly made him moan. This other man’s words aroused him so much Dante thought about claiming the other man’s ass. But then the words struck him. “Lord? I’m no lord.”
The other turned his face enough until Dante glimpsed the sharpness of his profile. “But you are. One of the pack, one of lords of the forest. I am here to serve you.” He bowed his head slightly.
