Lily Grove just wants a mate. She's dreamt of it ever since she first shifted into her Wolf. Her desire for a mate is her little secret and no one would guess it because she's a goth freak. Unfortunately, her goth cover turns out to be her demise when Nate Stone comes along. Nate is what Lily would call an extremely hot dude. An extremely hot dude who rejects her. And then tells her to keep it a secret from the pack. Devastated, heartbroken, and basically shattered inside, Lily loses her passion for life and everything else that comes with it. Filling in the empty void is envy. Envy for every other mated couple out there and for all the people who can find happiness, except her. After a horrible incident, she knows that the darkness is getting to her. In every single Werewolf, there is a part of them that is pure darkness. Without their mate, the darkness grows and grows, until you finally succumb to it and die. Seeing Nate everyday turns into a slowly, painful countdown to her death. Little does she know, Nate is suffering from the darkness too. Who will succumb to the darkness first, Lily or Nate? Or will there be a change of plans?
