Losing a father is always hard, losing a father who’s a pillar of the community is harder.
Losing a father who’s the alpha of your werewolf pack is harder still, yet that’s exactly where David Drigan finds himself–lost and rudderless after the death of his father. Nonetheless, the final transformation to turn David into the leader has yet to come to him, leaving him and his family wondering, will he ever be strong enough to lead his pack?
Trying to step into his place in society, David meets Kelsey. Blonde. Curvy. Attitude. And a little dark.
There’s just something about her that makes David’s beastly desires surface unlike ever before. The need to take her and protect her, if only from herself, overwhelms him. Not that Kelsey would let him. She doesn’t need anyone to take care of her. Never has. An absentee family taught her one thing–take care of yourself, because no one’s going to do it for you. But this David guy? There’s just something different about him. At first, she thought it was because his family actually likes each other–a foreign concept for sure.
One night at her favorite decrepit amusement park, she learns there’s a lot more to David than she ever expected. There’s a lot hidden in the shadows. Can they find the light, lost in the dark?
