This is the summary off the back of the book.
Chayton Winston is a veterinarian. He is also a werewolf. Much to his Native American parents chagrin, he has always dreamed of a fair-haired, Caucasian mate. However, he never imagined his mate would be male. As a heterosexual man, he’s not quite sure what to do with a male mate, but more than willing to find out.

Keaton Reynolds wakes up, in wolf form, and finds himself with a mate. He’s instantly attracted, but not so thrilled to find out the man is straight. Having been in a relationship once before where his partner professed to be “Not gay” left a bad taste in his mouth. Keaton wants to make a break for it and pretend he never set eyes on Chay—but Chay is not ready to let him go.

Together the two work to solidify their shaky relationship and battle the prejudices against homosexuals. Chay must deal with not only his mother’s prejudices against gay men but also her hatred of white people. When a power struggle in Keaton’s pack threatens Keaton’s life, the two men learn to depend on one another and their relationship to get them through it.

This is what I think of the book.
This book pulled me in right from the off and the emotional intensity was kept up from start to finish.
Seeing the relationship grow and flourish was really interesting because of Bits reluctance to get involved with someone who was not gay. Seeing how they overcame that while there was the threat against Bit was what made this story so touching. This really was a story about overcoming prejudice and how love can be the driving force for change in anyone's life. I am looking forward to lots more from this series and hope to see a lot more the blonde wolves as well as the black one's.
