For many years, Ade Simmons has been an outsider, trapped in an abusive relationship, seeking sanctuary in his job as a radio producer, and in the checklists he makes in an attempt to regain control of his sorry excuse of a life. Actor Kris Johansson is patient, gentle and passionate—everything that Ade’s ex-boyfriend is not. When Kris takes a role in one of Ade’s plays, the attraction is mutual and instant. It is the turning point for Ade. He can either stay on the same path, with Fergus—the bully who has repressed, used and isolated him from his friends and family—or he can look in the other direction, towards Kris—the handsome actor with family and friends who readily accept him. But Fergus will not give up his punchbag so easily—can Ade finally find the strength to fight back?

In antiquity she was born, and on the modern streets she walks. Who is she? What is she? Half woman, half wolf, she represents everything we want to be and would fear ever to be. She is a wanderer and has lived in many places, but now we encounter her in her current abode of Buenos Aires, Argentina. She uses the name Diana and works as a sous-chef, in order to assimilate herself into normal life. She has many talents, and is gifted with keen insight. In her human form, she has an odd way of being able to help people, but her curse still afflicts her. She must kill to survive. Brutal murders are being discovered around the city, and a man investigating them will cross paths with her in a chance meeting. They encounter each other again, at a Tango dance hall, and neither would ever be the same after that. She has to be wary about her relationships with humans, but will she let herself go this time?

Will he find out that the woman he has fallen for is the very monster he is trying to catch?
