Emma's empathetic abilities let her do what no other werewolf thinks is possible. She recognizes her mate at nine years old. Unfortunately, Darius is ten years older and only sees a sweet child and politely rejects her. Emma spends the next ten years ignoring the pain of being mateless and works to become one of the most incredible healers ever seen. But when her gift makes it necessary to once again see Darius, she has to wonder if he'll recognize her now. And if he does, just how willing is she to become an Alpha's mate.
