Elise Drake is on the mend. She has survived being attacked
and the gruesome events her own father had set in motion.
Now the pack is trying to regoup, to rebuild. She's not
sure where her place with the pack should be. She's tired
of some treating her like she was the criminal and others
as if she were made of glass. She has no idea that in the
eyes of one she will soon stop being the DARK WOLF RUNNING.
Wyatt Pallatone is a member of the Bloodrunners. They are
half breeds who will be allowed to join the pack after so

put in motion what his wolf has long known. She is his and
it is past time to claim her. But knowing the indignation

things like one dance at her brothers wedding, then ... then
she is attacked in her own home and things escalate. He has
to protect her but can he? He had failed years ago ... he
wouldn't survive if he failed again.

With his sharp gaze locked on the most magnificent female
he'd ever seen, Wyatt Pallaton did his best to hold himself
back. Of course, Elise Drake was hardly just any female.
Fiery and cool, strong, yet at the same time achingly

No matter how bloody difficult it proved to be, he was done
letting her pretend he didn't even exist. Done with letting
her fight her own battles. Done driving himself slowly into
this maddening state of frustrated desire. One way or
another, things were about to change.
