When twenty-seven year old Kate Jennings moves to the sleepy English village of Heystow, she seeks an escape from a troubled past. But Kate has a dark compulsion, one she will fight to keep hidden: she can shift into a fox, surrendering to deep primal urges to hunt at nightfall within the nearby woodlands. Instead of a care-free life without complications, she bumps into the charming archaeologist Mason Jones, a man to thrill her lonely soul. But all is not as it appears in the seemingly peaceful countryside. Kate soon find herself drawn into a dark world where witches, vampires, shifters, and other paranormal creatures secretly coexist with the humans of the village. The paranormal kingdom is ruled by Veronique, the sexy demon queen who ruthlessly imposes her will on all her subjects. When the queen learns of Kate's fox-shifting lifestyle and Kate's refusal to attend her summons, Veronique wants nothing more than to bring the new paranormal upstart to heel. Hidden and left alone for so long, Kate wants only to live her life alone and free. But with vampires enforcing the queen's rule and herself falling ever deeper for the alluring Mason Jones, how long can Kate hope to stay safe?
