"You must do as I say. After all, you are my slave," he said, stroking her cheek. Adeola Williams is a African-American slave back in the 1800s. Her life was pretty okay as a slave, until he came running into her life. He being Kristopher Lanters, the planter's or slave master's son. What Adeola doesn't know is that Kris is a werewolf, and she so happens to be his mate. Things can either go terribly wrong or terribly wrong for Adeola, and it seems to be luck isn't on her side one bit. Kris Lanters can't seem to get Adeola off his mind. Even though he's pretty pissed about having a slave as his mate, he still has to claim her, since he is gettting weaker and weaker each day. But they seem to be forgetting one rule: If you are mates with a slave, the slave must DIE.
