Jax is dangerous, deadly, and better still, he knows how to be patient. Whether it's waiting for the perfect time to kill, or waiting for his woman to come to him, and its just a matter of time before she does.
Katie is still carrying the dark scars from her past, and it's a black cloud she's carried for years, a heavy burden she was unable to throw off. She distanced herself from everyone, even from her mate, the man she is destined to love.
When Jax is injured in battle protecting the pack, Katie will throw away her inhibitions for only a moment to help her mate heal, but unfortunately, or fortunately, a night passionate healing leaves both wanting more, and now that the dragon is unleashed, Jax can't bring himself to stay away from his mate.
Especially when the ghost from Katie's past insists on making trouble for them.
