Six years ago, I did something I shouldn’t have done. Took something that didn’t belong to me. 

But there’s always a price to pay when you break the rules. I just didn’t realize she’d be the one to pay it. 

I am the son of Alpha. A hunter. I’d been sent to find Aria Hale and her family. They’d said it was to bring them home. But that was a lie. 

That was the night I learned what betrayal was. When those I trusted destroyed what I’d come to love.

I never expected to see Aria again, but here she is, six years later, standing on my doorstep, looking for answers, trying to understand something that can’t be understood.

I can live with blood on my hands. I can exist without her if it means keeping her safe. 

I just can’t live knowing she hates me.
