One bad decision can change your life forever.

It’s midnight in Berlin, and drifter Leon is hitchhiking home in the rain, covered in feathers after a wild festival in the city park. He can’t believe his luck when he’s picked up by a hot guy in a Porsche. That is, until he learns his driver is a creature from his worst nightmares—and plans to turn him into one too. He runs, but he can’t escape the werewolf’s bite.

Christoph made one mistake, but he’s paying for it plenty. He took Leon for a rogue werewolf on his way home from a hunt, and by the time he realizes the truth, it’s too late to do anything but make Leon a monster to save his life. That doesn’t save Christoph from the pack leader’s harsh punishment.

As Leon struggles to cope with his horrifying new reality—and his mixed feelings for the man who bit him—he’s desperate to discover not only what’s happened to Christoph, but the secrets their pack leader is hiding from them all.

Secrets the pack will kill to protect.

After a midnight out Leon is covered in feathers trying to get a ride, a Porsche with a hot guy in it takes him in... Leon is lucky.

When Christoph sees Leon covered in feathers he thinks he’s a fellow wolf...
Then he discovers his mistake and makes a decision.

Leon is not amused after finding out he is now a werewolf and held as a sort of prisoner by a small pack by their leader Peter Schreiber. Christoph is nowhere to be found.
When Leon finds Christoph and is freed all hell breaks loose.

“Because dammit, we were both terrified of the same thing - - me - -“

There is a secret about the pack... a dark and confusing one.

A freshly written, fast paced story. Leon is a vibrant guy with a lot of sarcasm in his humor, and thoughts like  “His voice had turned so cold I damn near glanced at my water glass to check it hadn’t iced over.”

The tension between Christoph and Leon was heavy and it hung between attraction, lust, hate, and distrust.
The plot was well done. It had a different approach to wolves, pack etc. Even with some angst in it, this story had an airy feeling and a light sheen.
