A wolf on the run from his demons. The one man who can tame his wounded heart.
None of it was Cai’s fault. He only ever wanted to impress his warlord. Arthur, on the other hand, had the gods’ favor—and Uthyr’s—but threw it all away to sleep with Bedwyr. They deserved to be banished.
So Cai has told himself for years. But now those old beliefs no longer hold the scent of truth. With guilt nipping at his heels, Cai flees as far north as he can. By the time he stumbles into a barbarian hunting camp, he’s nothing but fur and bones and a death wish.
It’s just his luck that among the strangers are a small girl with strength to spare and a man whose sure hand sparks an unsettling instinct to obey.
Raised by a brutal despot, Agravain is determined to be a better father to his daughter. He has enough problems without adding this pathetic excuse for a wild wolf to his burdens.
But he doesn’t count on her quick attachment to the beast, nor how helping the wolf mend eases the loneliness of their island home. And he can’t explain at all why the creature seems to understand him better than anyone else.
Just as winter sets in, an unexpected threat compels him to risk a stormy crossing to the mainland, one that could claim all three of them…or reveal that Agravain isn’t as alone as he thought.
Meanwhile, a surprise visitor to Arthur’s shifter compound could corner him into finally accepting a few truths that have dogged him for over a decade.
Tropes: on the run – secret identity – alpha/beta – found family – redemption
