Sawyer Kelmount's destiny is at the head of the pack, but becoming Alpha was supposed to happen much later in his life. Grieving the loss of his father forces him to slowly accept his new responsibilities, but as he steps up to lead the others on Wolf Ranch, he's haunted by his loneliness and the mistakes of his past. Surely this would all be easier to accept if his mate were still here.
Erika Morrison is happy with her life in L.A., but when she learns that Sawyer's father has passed away, she dutifully makes the trip home to Wolf Ranch to attend the funeral. Expecting Sawyer to be as distant and aloof as always, Erika is surprised that the new pack Alpha wants her help with the ranch's finances. And being near him again sparks the embers of an old flame that never really burned out.
As Erika sorts through the books for Sawyer to figure out what's really going on, one phone call forces her to make a difficult decision: return to L.A. or stay on Wolf Ranch and work things out with Sawyer once and for all.
