When Violet's mateless status designated her to serve as a breeder, she marked the very detainee she was assigned to seduce, giving him his life back in exchange for her freedom. Their arrangement, while simple in nature, would bring unforeseen consequences. Two minutes and a half. One hundred and fifty seconds. That was all it took for Landon's life to always come second.

When fate took away both pack and mate, a wolf had only one option - to become a rogue. Landon was never one to make other's life easier, so it shouldn't have been a surprise for neither his mate nor brother, that he did not conveniently die after his rejection.
