Guardian Ethney Wallace’s job is to eradicate the lycanthrope threat before they can feast on the unsuspecting humans in Savannah. Gifted with the ability to turn into a mermaid and bound by the Cancer constellation, she fights alongside the other eleven guardians. It’s not an easy job, but it’s one she enjoys, at least until innocent children get hurt. On a solo mission gone wrong she is rescued by Noah, a stunning stranger who has been infected by the lycanthrope. He and his young niece need her help, but she’s been down this road before and it has never ended well.
Noah Hawthorne and his niece, Claire, survived a brutal lycanthrope attack, but they didn’t come away completely unscathed. Both of them were bitten and now risk becoming the very monsters that murdered their family. With the full moon two weeks away they are in a race against time to stop the mutation from spreading within them. Together he and Ethney search for a cure, which brings the two of them closer together and it makes it harder to resist the budding attraction between them. A romance between them can never be. Ethney is honor bound to destroy all lycanthrope and if they fail in finding a cure she will have to destroy him.
