She jumped in front of the giant wolf before it could sink its dreadful fangs into her dear brother and her betrothed, spreading her arms wide and closing her eyes tightly in fear of her life, but more in fear for the two wounded men she loved. However she heard a painful moan and when she peeked through the slits of her eyes she saw a man wearing no clothes. She felt the breath leave her chest as his eyes glowed golden. He grabbed her wrist and she felt the spark of flame. She cried out on pain before he shouted at her. Before he could carry her away, she heard a word being roared out of his lips. "Mate!" Annabelle - or Belle as she prefers - is turning twenty, the beautiful, ripe age for marriage and soon her dreams come true when William Beau Harrington proposed to her; she could not be happier. However when dead bodies are turning up on the edges of the forest surrounding their small town, her older brother and her newly betrothed begin to go hunting for the creature which is killing their fellow neighbours. Belle follows them and when her brother and her betrothed are attacked and slightly wounded she goes to their rescue but only to be taken away by the wolf - whom turned into a nude man! In this creatures home - a castle full of warriors - she is given a deal. Spend four months with him and if by the time comes and she is not in love with him, she may go home. But feelings are stirring inside her and sparks fly when she is near him, sometimes she has dreams of her warrior monster. Can she remain faithful to William, or will she fall in love? Through her ordeal, she must make up her mind and risk her life to do so.
