After taking on an evil not seen for thousands of years, Lyken Alpha Evan Roven had his mate and unborn child ripped from his life pre-maturely. Now, five years later, on his own as a rogue, his wolf wants out to mate again. The problem—he's chosen a human female who can't even protect herself from an Orc attack. Evan struggles, holding back his instinct to take Kasey Decker as his mate. He finally gives in to his wolf, and himself. Then he stands behind Kasey when she learns her family is not what she thought. She's more than just a mere human. Kasey's a Silver Alchemist, which could prove deadly to Evan. Afraid she's going to hurt him, if she ever takes silver into her body, Kasey must use her gift when they're attacked by a stronger Silver Alchemist, one set on killing Kasey...her own mother.
