When a new contract comes in and the mark is a snow leopard shifter, he can't resist venturing into the mortal world on a personal mission to find out why one from a normally peaceful species now has a price on their head.

But when trouble walks right into her life in the form of a sinfully handsome, dangerous assassin, she is pulled into a whirlwind of events that stir up the nightmares of her past but might just give her a shot at putting those ghosts to rest-if she can resist the dark allure of a male she knows is her fated mate. Can Harbin and Aya resist the passionate fire that blazes between them as they chase the vengeance they both crave? Or will they surrender to their deepest desires?
