"A remarkable werewolf/paranormal tale you do not want to miss!"

The world as we know it no longer exists. A deadly strain of airborne Lycathropy has changed mankind forever. Like any plague: death, destruction, and horrifying anomalies are left in its wake.

Maya Blake has survived a werewolf attack only to become a very powerful psychic. Because of her survival, she is hunted for research purposes. She has been captured before and vows this time not to get caught again. Her main objective is to keep her sister safe, whatever the cost.

Adam Shepherd is a man with dark, deep scars from the past, a past of losing his family to the first wave of the deadly strain of airborne Lycathropy. Now, he has become a lethal honed hunter for the government to capture such individuals, like Maya Blake.

Unfortunately, Maya is captured by none other than Adam. One look at this scared, hardened hunter sets off a vision, not of pain and suffering, but waves of sexual images that leave Maya bewildered and breathless. Nevertheless, Maya must figure out a way of escape.

Sometimes escape can have different connotations and these two will wander into dangerous and sexually furious territory that explode their worlds apart.

Maya Blake is alive and well and on the run. For her, "well" means no tubes in her arms, no electrodes on her skin, and absolutely no lab coats in sight. A werewolf attack victim who has become a powerful psychic, Maya is the property of a government that wants to keep her locked in a research hospital. Her escape is a desperate attempt to keep her younger sister, a full-fledged werewolf, from the scientists' clutches, but she underestimates the long arm of the law.

Adam Shepherd is a hunter. Plain and simple. Though there's nothing as complicated as capturing creatures that have claws that can shred skin quicker than an Lycanthropy carrier can spread disease. Werewolves are his specialty. In a world being taken over by a monstrous disease, survivors might hold the key to mankind's survival in their veins. The initial deadly strain of airborne Lycathropy killed his family. Werewolves massacred his adopted family a year after that. If he can neutralize pack after pack in the name of a cure, then he's fulfilling two driving needs with one urgent mission.

Unfortunately, not all fugitives have fangs.

Maya doesn't control her clairvoyant visions. When she's stunned by intimate premonitions about the hardened, no-nonsense leader of ruthless mercenaries as they capture her, she can hardly control herself. Her hands might somehow know the feel of his smooth, muscular skin. Her lips might know his taste. But her heart knows he must be her enemy. How can the man who threatens to take away her and her sister's freedom ever be her lover?
