The constant pressure to be perfect the tormenting, the name calling...that's what pushed her over the edge. Kate Mauren is the daughter of the Alpha of the Midnight Star pack. Her brother avoids her at school because she's classified as a 'nerd', when she's actually just intelligent. Her mother only let's her eat once a day because she thinks having the perfect figure is the most important thing, and her father constantly calls her a failure and a disgrace to their family. When she finally meets her mate, Captain of the rugby team and Alpha of the Shadow Valley pack, he rejects her to spare his reputation. Sick of just sitting and taking everything anyone throws her way, she ties a noose around her neck, slits her wrists and jumps. Unfortunately for her, Fate has another plan and let's her live. She wakes up to a whole new side of life, a side where people actually care for her, where people look at her...a place where she's wanted.
