(Also affectionately known as "Wolves in the Big City"). Meet George, twenty-eight year old university librarian who is a little awkward at best and downright anti-social at worst. She's also a lone wolf who lost her parents as a teenager and has been on her own ever since. She's worked hard to live as one person in two worlds - the Human World and the world of Wolves. While she has been blessed richly with the gifts of Gaia's children, she uses then at a minimum and only shifts when she needs to. Apart from her friend/voice of reason Dominic, she has no other links to her Wolfen nature, and has worked very hard to keep in check for the past fifteen years. The only thing that gives it away is her golden eyes, which most people mistake as being hazel.
That all changes when she meets Julian, a twenty-one year old university student who lives with his roommates in an apartment nearby. He is everything she isn't - happy, relaxed, and carefree. She catches his scent one fateful Sunday, and against all odds, he manages to find his way into her life. He is the only human who has managed to bring the wolf right out of her. Once cool, calm, and collected, Julian manages to break the walls she's fought hard to put up and she finds herself falling for him. And while she's never believed in the idea of "mates", George is beginning to think that this happy-go-lucky Julian just might be hers...
