The gift of the padfoot cost Ripley Kent everything.
As a girl, she was chosen by the death dog. In one week, she lost everything. Her parents, her brother. Even her community of shifters shunned the power she sheltered.
She swore she’d never return to their prejudiced hatred, but when her uncle dies, Ripley is called back to Troutdale to settle his affairs. She thinks she can get in and get out unaffected, but Joe Elliott has other ideas.
He needs her, and it’s not in all the old ways her body remembers so well.
His twin brother has been bitten by a rabid wolf, and as the death glow overwelms the town, Ripley’s padfoot gift explodes into the curse she’s always feared.
Ripley owes these people nothing after the way they’ve treated her. But that’s the thing with gifts. Sometimes they cost more to leave behind than to use.
