Half-hyena, Trista has spent years rotating between Grayslake, Redby, and Boyne Falls. When the Grayslake Itan - the local clan's werebear leader - orders a purge of all hyenas, she finds herself fighting to hold onto the hand-to-mouth life she's created. Her carefully built existence is threatened further when a gorgeous werebear strides into her life and demands not just her heart, but her very soul. She'll think about it, but not until her shift ends at seven.
Keen seems like a happy-go-lucky, sex-and-sin werebear, but that's nowhere near the truth. In reality, his inner-animal wants to go on a bloody rampage and kill half of Grayslake - just because it can. After that, it wants to claim the seductive, curvaceous half-hyena female Keen can't get out of his head. The animal doesn't care that most bears wouldn't mind a little hyena tartare for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Nope, it peers at her through Keen's human eyes and has one thought: mate. When push comes to shove, Keen has to decide if he would rather have the family he was born with, or Trista - the woman who makes him realize that true happiness comes in a lush, hyena-shaped package.
