Mercy is getting married. She'd prefer to be stuck naked in a cage of hungry tigers rather than have to plan her wedding -- even with her mother's help. What's keeping her sane is knowing that Adam is planning a great honeymoon of camping and running wild in the forest. Weddings eventually lead to honeymoons and Mercy is surprised when it turns out that Adam's idea of camping in the woods differs from her's. The big RV was a clue, sort of like bringing your hotel room with you. But it was the news that their honeymoon was also part of a favor for a fairy to check on something that might be wrong in the river near a fairy owned RV park.
Adam should have known that you never, ever, do a favor for a fairy because what you agree to and what you end up doing are never, ever the same thing. Mercy is upset, in fact, more than upset and that was before she met Coyote.From official release/information:
Book blurb: Car mechanic Mercy Thompson has always known there was something different about her, and not just the way she can make a VW engine sit up and beg. Mercy is a shapeshifter, a talent she inherited from her long-gone father. She’s never known any others of her kind. Until now.
An evil is stirring in the depths of the Columbia River—one that her father’s people may know something about. And to have any hope of surviving, Mercy and her mate, the Alpha werewolf Adam, will need their help...
