Brody Ward is running out of time to find his marked mate, London, but he's not overly worried. He's had several visions of her and is convinced she's living in a nearby city. After searching for a while, he starts to realize that he's being too cavalier about the whole thing. His marked slave is out there and could be with anyone. The mark she wears on her skin, which shows his claim, will be fading soon. He can't afford to waste anymore time.
When London is finally found and he's working on claiming her, the Dark clan again interferes. She is taken but not to keep. The other shifter simply wants to scar her mark, the highest form of disrespect for a wolf shifter. She feels tainted afterward.
Will Brody still want a damaged slave? Will the Ward brothers be able to heal her?
