After a dominance challenge ended with his parents dead, Mason left Willow Bend and his pack behind, choosing instead to live life on his own terms...as a Lone Wolf. A wanderer, he keeps his life simple and carefree--until an unexpected encounter brings him face to face with his tragic past and the woman he always adored. Determined to get her out of his blood, he teases her into an easy one-night stand...but one taste will never be enough.
Alexis Huston lived on the fringe of pack life, adopted as a young girl. She's never been strong enough, fast enough, or pretty enough--except to Mason, but then he left her. Allowed her freedom as an adult, with a promise to keep the pack's secrets, she's struggled to fit into the 'human' world. A chance meeting turns her hard-won life upside down.
She is left with two options. She can tell the only wolf she's ever loved that she's carrying their child...or she can protect him, keep the baby a secret, and run.
