Charlie Fitzgerald is sick of being the kid nobody takes seriously. His
older brother Colin is fighting vampires and other troublemakers in New York
City, and Charlie wants in on the action—but no one will listen. Then he
overhears the lycan council is looking for a human emissary to take a message
of peace to a werewolf in the forests of Romania, and Charlie decides he’s the
man for the job.
Xan is furious: his best friend, Charlie, one of the Fitzgeralds he’s vowed
to protect, is walking into danger, and Xan chases him all the way to the
freezing Romanian forest to save his stubborn butt. When Charlie is almost
killed, Xan realizes he feels much more than friendship for his charge, and
emotions that have been bubbling under the surface of his calm façade threaten
to boil over and flood them both.
They end up in the middle of a political mess involving lycans, werewolves,
and nosy vampires, and if they make it out alive, the friendship between the
headstrong hunter and his bullheaded protector might turn into a love neither
can live without.
