A spinoff of the New York Times bestselling Kate Daniels series, featuring Kate’s best friend, shapeshifter Andrea Nash
Some people have
everything figured out — Andrea Nash is not one of those people. After
being kicked out of the Order of Knights of Merciful Aid, Andrea's whole existence is in shambles. All she can do is try to put herself back
together, something made easier by working for Cutting Edge, a small
investigative firm owned by her best friend, Kate Daniels.
When several shapeshifters working for Raphael Medrano — the male alpha of Clan Bouda and Andrea's former lover — die unexpectedly at a dig site, Andrea is assigned to investigate... and must work with Raphael. As her search for the killer leads her into the secret underbelly of supernatural Atlanta, Andrea knows that dealing with her feelings for Raphael might have to take a backseat to saving the world...
