Cobalt Marks is professional killer, a gun for hire. He and his partner, Ian, are both shifters; the difference is, Cobalt is a panther and Ian is a wolf. Life is pretty black and white, until Cobalt is stuck with a job he doesn't want to do - kidnapping a little girl. He soon finds out that the girl isn't so little, and there is a lot more going on than just a simple job. The girl is also a shifter, and she has a secret she has to keep at all costs. Cobalt has to choose between the job and the girl, but it's not simple. Especially when he finds that his little problem involves much more than he first realized. Will Cobalt choose to help her? Or will he close his heart and hand her over?
