Politics is a dog eat dog business, particularly when werewolves are involved.

When the Australian Prime Minister’s wife goes to the press accusing Serena Plim and her husband, Kelvin Waters, of having an affair, Serena flees both the press and the man she’s loved for a decade, but never touched. In the wilds of Australia’s cattle country she seeks refuge in the arms of Jack Wolfe, who offers her sanctuary -- and more. But Kelvin’s not a man to be left behind, and Serena’s not the only one who’s wished their relationship could go farther.

It’s not natural for two alphas to share the same female, let alone in the same bed. Jack and Kelvin can’t stand one another, and the two hunks are only a claw’s width away from ripping out each other’s throats. Serena’s trying to avert bloodshed while learning how to live in her new wolfen skin. And as if that’s not enough, the full moon is approaching and the quickening is taking hold.

And then there’s the politics. Caught between Australia’s political elite and the Wolfen Council, Serena’s only hope is that the wolfen’s ancient enemies, the vampires, will come to her aid. The fate of humanity hangs in the balance…

She walked slowly around the library, chewing on the sandwich. The shelves held hundreds of history books. Jack was, evidently, very studious. She liked that. He was certainly no ordinary cattleman.
She pulled down a volume on the French Revolution, her favorite period in history, and opened it at random. It was a chapter dealing with Robespierre. Written in the margin in an angry hand were the words, “No! No! No!”
She began to read the paragraph that had elicited such emotion when a sound startled her. It was the library door closing. Jack was standing there, staring at her.
“How is your grandmother?”
He stood very still staring at her, his nose flaring as if he was sniffing the air.
Then, with a dozen long strides he glided toward her, his face serious. He stopped only centimeters from her, his face bending down to meet hers.
She looked up into his dark, sad eyes, her heart thudding in her chest.
“I can’t do this any more,” he said finally. “I want you.”
“Oh,” she managed to mumble and closed the book, all thoughts of Robespierre instantly gone.
“I’ve tried to deny my attraction to you because you are going through a lot and I didn’t want to take advantage of you.”
She struggled for something to say. “Thank you for your…” she began, but too late for he’d swept her up into his arms and kissed her, causing the words to die in her throat.
