Sometimes fate gets it all wrong. Zoey Kent has lived with that fact ever since she turned eighteen and learned that the man she loved could never be hers. He's a born shifter, a wolf, and she's a mere human. Fate doesn't care if on paper they're a perfect pair. She isn't his fated mate and she's resigned herself to the knowledge that someday, she'll have to watch Michael mate with another. It's never crossed her mind that there might be someone else out there for her, that she would be the one to mate another, to choose another over everything she's ever known or wanted. Sometimes fate gets it all right. Rafe Hudson left his pack behind years ago. Physically and mentally scarred from an attack that left his parents and twin dead, he walked away from his responsibilities as Alpha. He never intended to return but lone wolf or not, he can't leave Michael open to an attack he's learned is coming for his only brother. What he didn't know was that going home would mean scenting his mate, the one person in the world that could make him whole again, that could give him everything he thought he'd lost. His pack, his home and his family. But fate always has a plan. There's no way Michael's brother is her future, is there? Just like there's no way that the girl his brother has loved since they were kids, was always meant to be his, right? Only fate knows why they were brought together but there is one thing for sure, the sparks between Zoey and Rafe are undeniable. The bond between them is unbreakable. And together... they'll change the face of the pack forever.
