Only in each other will they discover how to be truly free. Callie, a cat-shifter, is a loner by virtue of the puma that lives inside her. After a job gone bad, her very human need for contact sends her in search of the only family she has. Callie finds her foster sister in a disturbing living arrangement. Something is seriously wrong in a place where people "belong" to one man and silence is enforced to the point a seven-year-old girl pretends to be autistic. Dev Malik thinks it's odd to see a strange woman in the tall grass behind his house, but he doesn't have the time to ponder why. He's too busy trying to shelter the child and woman in his household from Scott, the control freak who lives with them. The truth is more dangerous than Callie imagines. Scott's control is powerfully real. And Dev's need to protect the vulnerable is as strong as Callie's own. Their desire is as inevitable as it is frightening, for only by looking deep within each other will they find the strength to free them all from an unspeakable evil.
