Five years have passed since Anika left Canis Falls and things have finally taken a turn for the better. Thanks to Dimitri’s connections, she’s been interning with the elite, and extremely secretive, Supernatural Affairs Unit, with the prospect of securing a job after graduating from college. But things aren’t completely easy. As they’ve grown closer over the past five years, Anika struggles to figure out her feelings for Dimitri. Is he just a friend? Or has he become more than that to her?
When Anika receives an invitation to her high school reunion, she reluctantly accepts, after determining that she needs to lay that part of her life to rest for good. After all, it seems like the perfect chance to clear her head and figure things out. But in returning to the town she left behind, she is forced to confront old wounds regarding Brayden, face a former friend who claims to have changed, and a clingy hybrid who’s still carrying a torch for her.
If that wasn’t hard enough, an injured Shaun MacHeath shows up on Anika’s doorstep with a warning. Things have drastically changed in the Werewolf Clan and he’s been caught in the crossfire. Now, he needs her help to convince Brayden to claim his inheritance. But can Anika really convince a hybrid with nothing but disdain for the Werewolf Clan to step up and claim his responsibilities to them?
