eBook Description: If you could shift into a wolf, what would you discover about yourself? Two years after the deaths of her bond mates, Constance Newcastle is ready to start over. The problem? The rest of the Great Pack, gathered in Paris to shift into wolves together, is not so sure she deserves the chance. Although the Great Council ruled the car crash an accident, even Constance blames herself. She was driving, after all. Treated like a pariah by those she longs to rejoin, Constance reunites with an old lover. Everything looks promising until he mysteriously dies. Accused of his murder and desperate to clear her name, Constance joins forces with handsome, confident Liam Murphy, a former Alpha pack leader with a past as tragic and troubled as her own. Guided by the mysterious Councilor Jason Allerton, Constance and Liam discover they are not alone-- throughout the Great Pack, people are dying. Can all the deaths be accidents, or is something more sinister going on? CONTENT WARNING: Vulgar language, some sexual situations

It started as a strange lightness in the pit of my belly that radiated outward and lit me on fire, only it was cold and purple dark. My mouth filled with the taste of the earth, my ears, fingers and toes tingled.
I ripped off my Chucks and threw them in the backseat and Murphy started to laugh.
My clothes felt tight, and while the fire inside was cold, I was hot on the outside.
I shrugged off my jacket and sweater. Jeans too.
"I don't want to go too much farther," I told him, and my voice was different. Lower pitched, sultry, wild.
Murphy looked at me, gauging how close I was to losing control over whether I would shift and concluded I was on the edge.
When he pulled the car off the road, I was out the door before he'd turned off the ignition.
"Wait for me," he shouted.
I ran until my legs blurred.
My ears felt as if they were scorching off, and when I looked at my palms, they had hair. Silver gray hair.
A grin of absolute delight nearly split my jaw in two and I threw back my head and howled.
