Gionne is alpha male of the Valde wolf pack. He wants Jenna, a feline shapeshifter, as his mate but the fates are manipulated to separate them before the two breeds can join.
Two years later, the felines need a favor and Gionne will help for a price — Jenna. Gionne holds Jenna as collateral for the debt. Holding an unmated female that comes into heat within the pack proves dangerous. He takes her innocence, claiming her as his mate to protect her.
Jenna gave her heart to Gionne only to have it broken. Now she must accept Gionne's terms in order to save her pack. Seeing the wolf stirs all the old feelings but Jenna refuses to submit to the alpha until he uses dominant persuasion. Just as Jenna begins to accept her feral mate, a pack member plots to get rid of her.
A malevolent force that doesn't want to see a merger between the two feral breeds works to separate them. Gionne introduces Jenna to the pleasures of a ménage in order to ensure her safety. Even with the help of another male, it proves difficult to keep Jenna safe from unreasonable prejudice.
