Descended from a legendary werecat demigoddess, Vivian Roussel is a modern New York businesswoman, specializing in Russian antiques. Life is wonderful until two things happen to upset her peaceful existence: unwelcome attention from the arrogant leader of her clan and a strange break-in at her warehouse involving shady werecats from a rival clan and a priceless sixteenth-century Russian icon.
To deal with the burglary, Viv hires a security expert, Pavel, who quickly goes from business associate to protector and lover, breaking werecat taboos with abandon. As they battle evil factions from her clan and defend the priceless icon from depraved werecats embedded in his, Viv and Pavel find themselves fighting foes from within and without. As their love grows in the shadow of international werecat politics and dirty dealings by both clans, Viv and Pavel can only rely on each other. And their very survival now depends on it.
