Aurelia, responsible for watching over her brother Les, has found her mates in the Opeth Pack, but cannot have them due to her allegiance to the Nobles. Until she frees Les of that allegiance and makes him see that there is a mate for him, she can only watch from afar. Les gives her heavy news about the fate of her mates, so Aurelia runs to warn Bianca and Viktor, only to fall in love with both the taller Hungarian and the shorter blonde with the fiery attitude. As winter hits Albuquerque, it’s revealed that Aurelia has been inhabited by the Flower Maiden, a deity who spreads disease throughout wolf-kind, for a purpose. She gets her male mate sick, then drains herself in an attempt to heal him, as the Nobles bring the war to the Opeth Pack.
