Andy Crawford has been treated ungently by life. Deserted by her father, abused by the men her mother took up with, she fled home at an early age and threw her energy into her art. Against her better judgment she engaged in an affair with the sheriff of her town, but now she's ended it and plans on spending the rest of her life alone. However, a mysterious man she meets in the woods one night has other ideas.
Though her common sense tells her to stay away from Alec Vadász, her instinct says that he is her true mate, and that he needs her help coping with the curse that turns him into a dangerous predator under the full moon.
