Amos Ellery is a werewolf. No Alpha title, no Gamma title, nothing too distinctive to be known for...that is, except for finding his mate locked up in a private room in a poverty-ridden orphanage. The girl is deemed unlovable and dangerous by the workers in the orphanage, but Amos wants to see for himself. Arraja Queen is an orphan. She's called crazy and has been locked in an orphanage, never expecting to be permanently adopted. At the age of 18 she'll be sent to an asylum if nobody wants her, which she expects. Until one day when an odd family comes in and takes her happily.
