Mountain sized lycan lieutenant of the Wolf Creek Pack and local sheriff Gabriel ‘Gabe’ Dunham is delaying his claim and trying not to rush his still fragile intended mate, librarian Katalin ‘Kat’ Petrova. It’d taken 200 years to find her so he’d wait. Gabe’s burning the candle at both ends watching over Kat all night and ‘sheriffing’ all day,but not chasing the increasingly bold rogues kidnapping gifted lycans.
Rescued from kidnappers before they could rape her or her sister Sara, still learning to master her gift of telekinesis and the still fresh ache of her father murdering her mother and planning to sell her and Sara has robbed Kat of her ability to cope. Gabe’s frustration mounts as Kat agrees with the lycan therapist that she learn to cope alone before she mates Gabe despite their strong emotional bond.
After taking care of Kat in a crisis and not making her emotions or telekinesis unstable, Gabe suggested moving in to his place for comfort. Life with Gabe makes Kat happy, she thinking about life with Gabe and their consummation ceremony helps stabilize her power. The Wolf Creek pack goes on high alert when they hear an unmated, gifted female from a neighboring pack was kidnapped by the Hellfire pack.
