History repeats itself…with a vengeance.
They say time heals all wounds. I disagree. Time don’t care. The past, she don’t let go. Old wounds look healed to the naked eye, but whether it’s a year, five years, or a hundred, they still lurk and fester below the surface, circling like sharks ready to leap and start feeding.
Once the pain rises, there ain’t no escaping the ghosts that follow. You see them everywhere, in your sleep, when you’re awake. You see echoes of the past in the folks around you and closest to you.
How do you keep your family and Pack from making the same mistakes you did? How do you set the past right again?
Tell you what, mon ami, if I knew that, I wouldn’t have half the problems I do now.
— Diego Beauchamp, Alpha
For the last six months, Diego Beauchamp had been the rock-solid pillar of support for the Morgan Foundation’s newest Pack. His strong leadership brought Regina and Harry through the most difficult time of their lives and now, he had to do the same for Cole.
Their trip to Portland, Maine was supposed to be nothing more than routine and protocol. Diego had gone through it a few times before with other fledglings. Cole would go before the Council and present his case, and the Council would release him to the Foundation’s custody for further training. Case closed.
But this time everything goes horribly wrong, jeopardizing the very core of the Pack and threatening to expose Diego’s closely guarded secrets and a past he has tried to forget.
The past won’t be ignored any longer.
