I was supposed to die when I was five but when my parents gave me the chance to run, I took it. I didn't understand much at the time except that I needed to get as far away from my old pack as possible, so I did. After living in the wild on his own for twelve years, surviving on whatever he could manage to catch or scavenge, Tanner finds himself in a situation with a new pack of werewolves...one that he can't run away from this time. Cole is a professor at the local university and alpha of the Moon pack. He takes his position very seriously, so when a possible rouge wolf is found to be taking pets from the neighborhood, he has to act fast to stop it and keep his own pack's wolves safe from possible human hunting. When he tracks down the animal he expects it to be a sick or injured wolf that couldn't hunt for itself. What he didn't expect to find was an abandoned werewolf who needed him desperately...even if it didn't seem to think so.
