Jonathan Winchester has clashed with his alpha one too many times. After another argument he leaves the Manitoba pack, his only home since the werewolf attack that changed his life. He returns to his home state of Virginia to start a new life free of pack politics. Jon finds work and meets a young waitress, Raine, who appears to be a lone werewolf, too.

As their relationship progresses, Jon's embroiled in more intrigue than he bargained for and a danger bigger than he can handle. He's running scared until his own alpha tendencies surface, making him unable to leave the pretty werewolf’s problems behind. The young man is desperate to save Raine—even if his efforts may lead him straight to death.

Journey along in this first prequel novel involving the favorite characters from the bestselling V V Inn series. Written at reader demand, this stand-alone story explains how the beloved Jonathan came to serve the deadly redheaded vampire, Dria.

Warning: This book contains one sex scene and graphic violence and is not intended for readers under 17.

Jon was attacked one night by a werewolf and his life was changed forever. He has been living with a pack in Manitoba until he clashes with the alpha one too many times and decides to take off. He ends up in Virginia where he meets a young werewolf that really captures his attention. Jon knows he’s an alpha but he’s not sure that he’s ready to lead his own pack, yet he really connects with Raine.

Jon finds himself stuck in a very difficult situation and decides to search out a vampire to help him solve it. He finds Dria and her human husband Rafe. Jon doesn’t know much about vampires but needs her help more than anything, so he will agree to do anything. Dria is an old vampire that is loveable one moment and deadly the next. Good prequel that piqued my interest and I am excited to read the rest of the series.
