One to kill. One to be killed.
The year is 1767, in the province of Gévaudan, France.
For three years, the people have lived under the deadly reign of a murderous creature known as the Beast. It shows an intelligence and discernment unlike any animal ever seen, yet such bloody viciousness is surely only a monster's work. The farms and homes, the hills and forests, are no longer safe.
And yet into these forests come Tristan, the Marquis du Lyon, and Constance Marie de Marin. One to kill. One to be killed. The last thing either expects to find is each other, but can two wounded souls overcome the pain of the past and the trials of the present to be together? Can they wrest their future from the hands of men and beasts?
Can love really conquer all?
