Werewolf Watchman Kellan Scott is still wrestling with the guilt his actions produced when he almost caused a disaster by rutting around. As part of his self-imposed penance, Kellan launches a solo attempt to rescue Chloe Harcourt, who is a half-Merrick/half-Mallory witch. To do this, Kellan gets himself captured so he will be imprisoned next to Chloe. In the process, Kellan is poisoned by a deadly vampire bite. Complicating matters is the fact that Chloe’s Merrick side is awakening. Time is running out, as Kellan, Chloe and another prisoner look for a way to escape. (HQN, Nov., 384 pp., $7.99)
