When werewolf Eli Drake is banished from his pack, he leaves a devastated and heartbroken Carla Reyes behind. Three torturous years later, she tracks him down to a hole-in-the-wall Texas bar—the pack is in trouble and war is on the horizon. Carla needs Eli's help, but wants nothing more to do with him—even though he's as ruthless, domineering and sexy as ever…. Eli hasn't forgotten Carla. And the partial bite he gave her their last night together has had him lying awake nights imagining her sumptuous curves and supple lips. But Carla wants their bond broken, no matter the cost. Now, as they join forces, dare Eli hope that he can claim a future he never dreamed possible?
Eli Drake was banned from his pack leaving Carla Reyes behind with a broken heart, not claimed as his mate but not free either.

Can he claim his mate and save his pack?
