Morgan lost everything - his family, his past, and his hope - when he went in search of the father who had abandoned him, his mother, and sister. Accused of a terrible crime, Morgan is condemned to long years in prison, a fate unimaginable for a man of shapeshifter blood.
All he wants is to live the rest of his life in freedom among the wolves. But a fateful encounter with a traveling circus calls him back to humanity, and to a meeting with the one woman meant for him: Athena Munroe, crippled in a devastating accident and now one of the leading lights of Denver's wealthy society.
Dominated by her overprotective brother Niall, Athena finds in Morgan a living symbol of the freedom she has lost. Only she has the power to ease his pain. But Morgan has his own dark memories to overcome before he can learn to love again. Can Athena catch a wolf who refuses to be tamed?
