Twenty-five year old Carlotta Palmieri (Charley) has been alone since the death of her grandfather. She works at a deli and is waiting for a bus to meet her blind date unfortunately that night would change her life. Charley is kidnapped by a bunch of men, one larger than the other. They promise not to hurt her but her constant fighting and screaming forces them to drug her.
Charley wakes up in a strange bed naked and wearing a robe. She is told that the Alpha needs a mate by a meeting on Christmas Eve or he will not be able to rule. His Guard, the men who kidnapped her hope that they picked a woman that will please their alpha, and she does.
Rafe Maccon knows what his Guard did and knows that everything depends on him mating by Christmas Eve. He begs Charley to give herself to him and then she would be able to go on with her own life. Rafe wants Charley and not just because he needs a mate but because he believes she is his true mate and Charley who has never been with a man finds herself wanting a man she doesn’t know and who claims to be a werewolf.
This was a great shifter book and shifter books are one of my favorites. It moves quickly since it is short but it left me wanting to read the next books in the series.
