Hannah Braselton North has abandoned civilization to spend her life in isolation among the wild and beautiful animals of the Alaskan wilderness. And a book she now holds fills her with wonder and trepidation. The supposed 'memoirs' of one Matise Devoncroix, it is a story of strange desires and forbidden love-the tale of a magnificent hidden race of werewolves and a tortured, doomed relationship written with a firm and powerful hand. Hannah knows it must be fiction, this aching and earnest account of Devoncroix and his lovely, enigmatic Brianna-his lover, his heart, his passion. But the sad, reclusive scientist is haunted by the mystery that surrounds Devoncroix's astonishing revelations-and the journal's connection to a noble, damaged creature she is trying to nurse back to health - a male wolf Hannah pulled from the same airplane wreckage in which she discovered the diary.
