Eager to escape her father's brutal fists, Alex lets her instant connection to Tobias overcome her natural reserve but she quickly finds his world is no less dangerous than the one she left behind.
As secrets come to light revealing how extraordinarily different Alex truly is, will their love survive or will his duty and her differences keep them apart?
"Not now," she muttered to herself, eyes still trained on the wolf in case it began to move again. "Come on legs work for God's sake! I need to get out of here before wolfie over there decides he's hungry or the crazy psycho wakes up and tries to kill me again."
Leaning against the wall and holding it for support, Alex managed to make it to her feet, closing her eyes as she sighed in relief.
Life isn't bad enough with Fred as a father, I have to make my university explode with foliage, be attacked by a raving lunatic and saved by a wolf. I've had enough excitement for a lifetime, I'm done, I'm getting out of here and then - Her line of thought was cut short as she opened her eyes to find the body of her saviour wolf transforming into something else.
Seconds passed before a man stood in place of the wolf and an inane thought floated through her mind in the face of his transformation. He's wearing clothes; I would have thought he'd be naked.
She blushed at the thought. The man smiled as he began to approach her and all thought fled as her eyes rolled back and her mind went blissfully blank, the stresses of the day apparently having taken their toll.
