Description-
  • The days grow colder. The nights grow longer. And every time the moon rises, the wolf inside her grows a little stronger.

    Cheyenne Clark--a woman whose hatred for werewolves has turned her into the very beast she most despises--prowls the Arctic Circle on the trail of an ancient secret, hunting for the one thing that could remove the lycanthropic curse and make her human again.

    Yet standing between Chey and her goal are a werewolf hunter armed with a diabolically brilliant weapon, a centuries-old werewolf with her own mysterious agenda...and Chey's own complicated feelings for the man who doomed her to this existence but on whom her life now depends.

    Worse, with every hour that passes, the wolf inside Chey becomes more powerful. It won't be long before the woman disappears completely, and only the beast is left.

    From the Trade Paperback edition.

Excerpts-
  • Chapter One

    Cheyenne Clark was, for the first time in her life, almost happy.

    It wasn't something she liked to admit to herself. She had plenty of reasons to be miserable, depressed, even pissed off. But those reasons felt very far away.

    There had been a time, before, when things had gotten bad. Very, very bad, and she hadn't come out of it innocent. She--or rather her wolf--had done things she didn't like to contemplate.

    An agent of the Canadian government had tortured her. He'd been using her as bait to draw another werewolf to his death. The two werewolves had retaliated, and things had gotten out of control. She'd gone a little crazy. Maybe a lot crazy. She had killed some people. Or, as she wished she could put it, her wolf had killed some people.

    But that was in the past.

    Now she wasn't alone anymore. Chey and Montgomery Powell--she still called him Powell, though he'd told her she was a friend of his now, and could call him Monty--were together now, together in a way she'd never experienced with a human being. It was more like the bond wolves share in a pack. They'd headed north, away from anyone who might be looking for them. Away from people they might hurt, and people who might hurt them. People who had easy access to silver bullets.

    Those people were a long way away. In the Northwest Territories of Canada, there was a lot of empty space to escape into. Starting from Port Radium, a ghost town so polluted nothing could live there, they'd followed the sinuous curves of the shore of Great Bear Lake, staying close to the water where the hunting was still good. Summer was over, and though the ground was still soft and the wind didn't bite too hard yet, most game animals were already migrating south. There were fewer snowshoe rabbits every day and even field mice were becoming scarce. When Powell caught his first lemming--like a big mouse with a red back and a short tail--he brought it back to their camp and studied it as if he were reading a newspaper. "It must be September," he said.

    He took a buck knife out of his pocket and started to skin the animal, preparatory to cooking it over their fire. Chey winced and turned away. She could feel him watching her, feel his surprise, but there were still some things her wolf handled better than she could.

    "You're going to eat this once it's roasted, aren't you?" he asked her.

    "Yes," she told him. She was always a little hungry these days and she knew once she smelled the cooking meat she wouldn't be able to resist. "I just don't want to see it cut up, that's all."

    "You should learn how to skin one of these. Pretty soon we'll be living off them. You'll need to know, then."

    She shook her head. Their wolves were perfectly capable of hunting for themselves. Powell and Chey didn't need to eat at all--what nourished their wolves nourished them. Powell insisted on cooking, though, because it was a human ritual and it made him feel like he was still in control of his destiny. She...respected that in him, that he still thought of himself as a human with some kind of disease. Something that could be managed. She was under fewer illusions, herself. "I'll just let my wolf do it," she said.

    Her wolf loved it up here. Her wolf thrived on the constant cold, on the silence between the trees. On the clean air. And because there was no way for Chey to get rid of her wolf, she was just going to have to make do. Her wolf hated human beings and would attack them on sight, whether it was hungry or not. She didn't want that to happen. Didn't want to live with the consequences. The only option left to her was to live up here where people were scarcer than palm trees. Powell had...
