Luke is a special bear shifter. Special in the way that he was shunned by his family as he was "different" to the rest of them. His home life was very bad to say the least. He is now happy with Kurt, with whom he is mated, but they are looking for their third.
Kurt originally comes across as being quite the grouchy, unfeeling person - except when it comes to Luke - and I have to be honest and say I wasn't sure I would like him. However, he is so protective of Luke, and as you read the story you really understand why.
Tobias is a lonely wolf shifter, who like Luke was different, and his home life too was awful. All he wants is someone to love him as he is, and so far hasn't managed to find anyone like that. This isn't helped by the fact that he uses sex to get close to others, and now has quite the reputation.
Tobias and Luke meet in a truck stop shower, and Luke knows straight away that Tobias is his third mate, and before he can stop himself he joins Tobias in the shower and gives him the mating bite as they both orgasm. Confusion then reigns as Luke keeps saying he has to tell Kurt, and Tobias believes that Luke has cheated on Kurt and wants nothing more to do with him, but also Tobias has no idea about the mating bite on his shoulder. When Luke returns to the shower he finds Tobias has disappeared.
Kurt and Luke manage to find which pack that Tobias belongs to, and the three of them meet, but Kurt is still hesitant about accepting Tobias even though Luke has already tied them together. Things get off to a rocky start, but slowly start to improve, until the day that Tobias disappears whilst on patrol.
Without Tobias to run interference, are Luke and Kurt able to make the rest of the pack understand they pose no threat to them? Does the magic user have anything to do with the disappearance of Tobias? Are they able to rescue Tobias in time? Can Luke persuade Kurt to accept Tobias as their third? Are they able to solve the mystery of who the magic user is?
