Since the last world war in 2010, earth is not a very comfortable place for humans and only the strong and determined can have a good life. Boundary fences separate the small republics from the no-man lands where outlaws and bandits pry on the nomads. During the war to end all wars, scientists created Others; vampires, shifters and other genetically engineered humans who were used as mass weapons of destruction; now these elite entities are held in fear. Gina "Red" Santiago has recently discovered she is a werewolf and moved to the Arizona town of Nuria where others like her hide in plain sight. From official release/information:
Product Description: If you're not afraid of the big bad wolf... you should be.
Thrust into a world of creatures Gina `Red' Santiago never knew existed, she does her best to come to grips with the fact that she's a werewolf.
Sheriff Morgan Hunter tries to ease Red into her new life. She's only beginning to understand the `Others' and the power they yield.
That's why Morgan hasn't mentioned he's claimed her as his mate. Well, that and the fact he's not exactly sure how Red will take the news. There are some things even an alpha werewolf fears.
Their newfound happiness is about to be shattered by a past Morgan thought was long buried. Someone doesn't want them to succeed at recruiting `Others' for a rival tactical team. They will do whatever it takes to prevent a team from forming, even if that means killing off the new recruits and tearing the couple apart.
Now along with trying to hold their relationship together, Red and Morgan must stop the killer before they strike again. If they survive, there is that little problem of a blood war looming on the horizon. Looks like it's going to be a long, hot summer.
