Caleb Lyall enrolls in college, hoping to find a cure for the lycanthropy that has afflicted his family for centuries. Desmond Quinn, a graduate student, is more than willing to help Caleb adjust to his new life behind the ivy-covered walls of academe. Immediately smitten, Caleb begins to wonder if Desmond might be his destined mate.
But Caleb's not the only one with secrets on this campus--dangerous secrets. Between animal attacks, blackouts, clandestine cult-like meetings, underground experiments, and midnight rituals ending in madness, Caleb is certain he's stumbled across things he was never meant to know; things that could very well put the man he doesn't quite dare to love in grave danger.
