Carter's a bastard but that has little to do with being a wolf. So taking in a dying nineteen-year-old street walker provokes polar emotions in him. His unusual gesture triggers events that create a very powerful enemy in the vampire hierarchy, who uses Maggie to punish him. Turned without Red Court sanction, she faces an automatic death warrant. Carter refuses to accept Maggie must be put down, whether it's the law or not. As tensions between wolves and vampires escalate, Carter's life becomes more complicated when he falls for the beautiful vampire lord sent to negotiate an end to the month-long war his interference started.

Carter McCown protected a vampire turned without Red Court sanction once before. That ignited a war, created powerful enemies, and strained an alliance with his only supporter, an ancient no one should ever cross. Carter won't escape with breaking the Changeling Pact as he did then. He's been drawn into a trap and Miranda Hansen's life expectancy can be measured in hours. Even his wolf wants him to turn his back on her. Yet whether it's a sense of guilt or his beast's stubbornness, he's committed to saving her. Failure ensures he won't see his two-hundredth birthday. Not an earth- shattering milestone for a changeling, but one he'd like to reach.
Carter McCown careens from starting and ending one war, to facing Armageddon that may require pulling another miracle out of his butt. Peace may hinge on secrecy, in the bayous of Texas where Carter learns about the speed of communication—telepho ne, telegraph, tell-a-hick. Intrigue smacks him in the face on a trip he hopes deals with a single case of a rogue wolf, but fears an entire unsanctioned pack, the most powerful lycans in the world. His redneck new hire has been arrested for a murder he couldn't have committed. The metasexual vampire Lord Elizabeth is back in his life. The local bumpkin drama pulls him in five directions. And again his mentor may be undermining Carter's agenda for his own ends.
