To save his lover, he must become his own worst nightmare.
Dr. Nick Sewell. Non-conformist. Werewolf. The first puts him at odds with his colleagues' idea of how an All Saints College lecturer should behave. The second, bestowed upon him by an ex-boyfriend, puts him at odds with himself.
There's his tendency to change into a wolf on the full moon. And his visceral attraction to Julian Lauder, a troubled young German student. Despite his determination not to act on his desire, Nick's brutal response to seeing Julian with another man frightens them both. At first.
Then Nick learns that Julian is not only a naturally submissive werewolf, but one who has learned better how to deal with just being a werewolf. That explains the attraction, but it doesn't make it any easier when the tables are turned, and Julian-once the student-is now teaching Nick...who still isn't happy about conforming to the "werewolf way".
Meanwhile, reports of a strange wolf stalking the town barely register on Nick's radar-until Julian disappears. Accusing eyes-both wolf and human-are turned toward Nick. Even with the help of friends, hope is growing as cold as the kidnapper's trail. Unless Nick gives free rein to the wolf's inhuman power...
