Hadden confronts Miranda, who canceled the marriage when that very day she changed into a werewolf. Though a half-breed, she cannot halt the metastasis into a wolf when the moon rises. Skeptical Hadden accepts the truth declaring he will help Miranda though he does not know how.
Purebred loup garou Drake Guignard has come for Miranda to complete the vow her mother broke years ago. While he looks forward to her becoming his bride and savior of the divided pack, his wanton killing of humans horrifies her. Still she craves fresh meat and mankind is choice cuts. Miranda rejects Drake and turns to Hadden for help. They visit a mountain witch while Drake begins a reign of terror to force her to acquiesce.
