Ever since Toben told me to make my first birthday wish, I always wish for the same thing: for us to run away to a beautiful place where they won’t ever find us or hurt us again. He’s the only person in the world who loves me. I love him too. He’s says we’re the same, that we’re halfpeople. He tries to protect me from the monster. The monster does’t love us, but Toben says we don’t need him to. Toben is all I need. He’s the reason I keep waking up every morning, in this scary life, praying for the day my eyes stay closed.
Tavin is the most precious thing in my life. She gives me a purpose. I love her more than the air in my lungs, and it’s because of her that I’m able to hang on to some semblance of who I once was. His sinister cruelty has taken its toll, causing something to change inside of me. She can’t ever know the things I’ve done. The things he’s made me do, and the things I’ve done because of my own darkening heart. She wouldn’t understand that I did those things for her. Everything breath I take, every soul I crush is for her. It’s all for her.

Surfer. Alpha werelock. Consummate truth-bender and f*ck-up and strong contender for worst big brother ever.
Raul Morales is the werelock you love to hate. He’s made some mistakes in life. Not least of which was abetting a kidnapping scheme involving his sister Milena’s best friend, Bethany, a decade ago.
Those stolen forty-six hours with Bethany ten years ago were some of the best and worst moments of Raul’s life—moments he’s never forgotten. And the instantaneous, soul-shattering connection Raul’s wolf felt for Bethany the day he came knocking on her front door to lure her to Argentina is one that both man and beast have struggled to deny ever since.
After Milena’s pack erased Bethany’s mind of her time spent with Raul in South America, Raul forced himself (and his wolf) to stay away.
But you can only delay the inevitable for so long…
When Raul and Bethany’s paths cross on a dance floor in San Francisco, their decade-long repressed animal attraction culminates in more than just public copulation. As one love bite leads to ten, serious complications arise that prompt Raul to take drastic measures.
Only this time when he kidnaps Bethany, he has no intention of ever letting her go again.
