Running an inn should be an easy job. That is if you’re not Nathan Mercer — owner of the only refuge for supernatural creatures in the world.

Ever since the fae discovered Winter’s Wolf lives; Nathan has been bracing himself for an inevitable confrontation. But when a ruthless killer leaves a trail of blood across Portland, Nathan’s past and present collide in ways no one could have foreseen. With some help from his friends, and one immortal love, Nathan races to stop the killer and protect his family.

Winter’s Wolf is done hiding.
