Dr. Keely Bennett, a healer at Paranym University, can't shift.
Her mate, Hugh Blackwolfe doesn't mind--but his pack sure does. Hugh is the strongest alpha on the East Coast and the pack's single females challenge Keely, forcing her to find a shifter willing to meet and win this challenge for her, so that she and Hugh can mate.
Keely's dragon best friend, Lindy, with her controller and mate, Alex, also struggle with shifting. They must learn the nuances of how Lindy shifts, and soon.
After several random attacks, and with an unknown enemy gunning for all of them, time may be running out. As if Keely doesn't already feel unworthy, the dragon appears to be calling everyone but her to her team of allies.
