Werewolf Samantha Carstairs wants to tell her best friend Dr. Annie Cryer no when it comes to keeping secrets from her Silverback clan alpha. Reluctantly she agrees to give the brilliant lupine research scientist a few more days to affirm her findings on lupine sensory perception before seeing her superior. Sam feels her sudden softness is caused by her reaction to human Noah Baker, who unbeknownst to the female werewolf, works for the army of werewolf Others and is currently performing “industrial” espionage by using her to get at Dr. Cryer and her research.

Noah is attracted to Sam and wonders if those feelings are why like he believes he is on the wrong side of an upcoming battle. He hides his concerns from his friends that the mission is inappropriate while trying to obtain more data. However, Noah knows he would rather die than bring harm to Sam and the task as currently structured places them in opposing camps.

The fun in this wonderful werewolf romance is the human hero who finds himself divided between love and duty with the readers wondering along with Noah which way he will go. The fast-paced story line grips readers from the moment Sam and Noah meet and never slows down until the final howl is sounded. Fans of paranormal military romances will appreciate this entertaining tale as Sam ponders what the right thing to do is.
