Playing by one's own rules is tempting danger for a female mercenary and a mysterious stranger in Shiloh Walker's new novel in a 'scorching-hot'* series . . .His past is a mystery, even to him-a werewolf with memories so lost in a fog that even the Hunter's healers cannot help him.

Dogged by the unanswered questions of his enigmatic existence, he fears he will never find the missing pieces of the puzzle that is his life.The vampire Sylvia is no Hunter. She's a take-no-prisoners mercenary who just barely skates this side of what the Hunters consider acceptable. She has no use for them, their laws, their rules. All she want is to hunt her quarry and make a lot of money. Her newest prey is a killer as devious as he is slippery. But her newest complication is of a more intimate sort: a blonde, blue-eyed werewolf who interferes with her plans in so many exquisite ways.Praise for the Hunter novels'Mind-blowing.'

Toronto is a werewolf, with no childhood that he can remember. He has attached himself to Rafe's group but tends to be unreliable, lost. Long white blonde hair, a confrontational attitude, and a Master unaware of all of his powers makes Toronto someone to notice. Sylvia is a vampire, with a childhood that haunts her dreams at night. She is a killer for hire, but will do some jobs free if the cause is right. This current job has the right cause. Early on in the story, Toronto and Sylvia decide to join forces because they are both hunting the same person. Witches and psychics take an important secondary role in the story. These two realize half way through the book that things are much bigger than they seemed at first. Problems multipy quickly but Toronto and Sylvia need each other to do the job. Passion is hot, the road to love is very twisted and bumpy, and important personal observations by both the heroine and the hero is addictive.
