Avery is one tough wolf. Working and living on the outside of the law might be more fun, but it comes with dangerous side effects. When she gets backed into a corner and takes a risky shortcut to escape, she ends up gravely injured—and in the care of the last wolf she could ever want to see. Now she is stuck depending on him for her health and protection, while the revolution she leads is moving forward without her.
Diesel left behind his career as a law enforcement agent with UNITY to pursue a quiet life as the second-in-command of his family’s pack. Or, at least, that’s what he’s been telling himself since he retired. When Avery falls into his life, she brings with her memories of the job he left behind and the losses he has suffered. The only thing he wants is to get her out of his hair as quickly as possible. That might be easier if his pack leader wasn’t hell-bent on making him Avery’s private guard dog.
A journey into Avery’s seedy world shows Diesel his beloved rules and regulations might not be as perfect as he thinks. When the UNITY universe is rocked by an underground movement to overthrow the government, Avery and Diesel find themselves working side by side to protect the life they know. Only problem? They’re not defending the same ideals.
In the midst of the turmoil, an unexpected passion sparks between them. Can their newfound feelings survive the biggest threat their universe has encountered?
