Nicolina Desmond and Richard Murphy (from Witch & Wolf #2, Winter Wolf) are back.
Long before the plague threatened to wipe out the Fenerec, Nicolina Desmond was a Normal girl with extraordinary circumstances. In order to prove herself and escape her father’s chokehold on her life, she’s determined to get on the fast track towards an independent life.
However, she never anticipated how meeting Richard Murphy would change her life…

Nicolina Desmond should have known that her twin’s overly friendly behavior with the eligible Fenerec males would land her in trouble, but she never expected how far young, single werewolves would go to secure a mate.
When Richard is invited to hunt Nicolina’s kidnappers with her father, he jumps at the chance. With Desmond lusting for blood and violence, Richard is forced to toe the line between mercy, justice, and revenge.
Charles Desmond’s influence isn’t enough to stop those who are determined to take Richard’s rank through force. With Nicolina Desmond out on the hunt to kill him once and for all, he’ll need a lot more than luck to survive his stay with the Desmonds.
Richard Murphy has many sides, and Nicolina Desmond is dismayed to discover that he truly has the patience of a hunting wolf and his pranks are just as nefarious as hers. When the bodies of Fenerec turn up in her back yard, however, she might have to kill again, and her target is none other than Yellowknife’s injured Alpha.
While Nicolina is relieved to have survived her first quarter at Stanford, there are still a few surprises left in store for her, leaving her with a lot more questions than answers… and an extra mouth to feed.
Richard’s worst fears come to pass when Nicolina’s plane crash lands at the airport, leaving him to either win a dominance battle with her father or witness two of North America’s most dangerous Fenerec run wild in the middle of a crowd.
Richard’s desperation to dominate Desmond and his mate has done far more damage than anyone ever suspected. With his human half in trouble and fading fast, it falls to his wolf to find a way to save them both. To make matters worse, it’s Christmas Eve, and Richard’s past comes to haunt him once again.
With Richard recovering, there’s some hope of salvaging their normal Christmas rituals, but her father’s plans sweep her up into her worst nightmare—one where she’s a bartering chip held by none other than the Silvered Wolf.
Richard and his wolf are delighted to have Nicolina for their own for at least several days, but when his parents show up, the game he was playing with Desmond takes a lethal turn.
Between her father’s plans to subject her to a trip to Yellowknife and the matted ruins of her hair, Nicolina’s life has become a tangled mess. When help comes from an unexpected source, she’s forced to look at herself and her worst enemy in a different light.
When an Inquisition witch shows up to take Richard into custody, Nicolina once again proves he has a lot to learn about Desmond’s daughter.
Dealing with the devil has its risks, but when Nicolina strikes a bargain with Richard Murphy, she fears she has bitten off more than she can chew.
What should have been a relaxing side trip to the mountain springs lands Richard in hot water.
Everyone has a breaking point, and Nicolina Desmond is no different. When her father crosses the line one too any times, an impulse decision results in her teaming up with Richard Murphy for some good old-fashioned payback. The only problem? Their opponents are three of North America’s most dangerous wolves and the entirety of Richard’s pack.
