Mary Arnold's entire life has been filled with pain, abandoned on the steps of a church by her parents, not wanted by society and left within the care of government run orphanage. At nineteen she does nothing more than sleep, eat and work two jobs, just to pay for her way in life.
But all of that changed on one cold morning as she walked home from her job as a night fill at the local convenience store. Attacked by a supposedly mythical creature, Mary is thrust into a world of the unknown.
Her survival depends on one person, a dark and cold man who is living with the despair of lost love. Can she depend on a man that is so absorbed in his own misery that he cannot see the danger that looms?
Walking down an alley at five am in the morning wasn't the brightest thing that Mary has ever done, but in one brief moment she altered her world forever.
