Daniel McGrath isn’t used to being the hero. As a self-proclaimed womanizer and drunk, he is much happier being the rouge hunter employed by Danato, than actually being useful. Unfortunately, when he gets word that his best friend and former partner, Ethan Pierce, is having a problem with a transmorph, he is the only one who can help.
Daniel arrives at the prison with Heaton and their new partner only to discover that Cori, Ethan’s wife, has been embedded in a transmorph for nearly six weeks. Daniel reveals to Ethan his ability to incinerate matter with a single look. Although, the shocking power can help him remove Cori from her morphing captor, it is dangerous for both him and her. Nonetheless, Daniel is determined to help his friend at any cost.
Revealing so much of himself so fast, puts Daniel in a strange position of honesty with his new partner Nevia Jordan. Though the petite, pixy-cut brunette seems fragile and unworthy of a hunter’s position, she has a special power of her own. The gun toting former FBI agent has a nose for tracking transmorphs. Literally. Her talent for sniffing out the creatures also extends to detecting emotions. Daniel quickly realizes that he couldn’t keep a secret from her if he tried.
Despite his first impressions of the woman, Daniel finds himself uncontrollably drawn to the taciturn woman. Conversely, her interest in him is purely physical, and only temporary. This karmic turn of tables leaves Daniel baffled with how to proceed. He might be able to save the damsel in distress, but this hero isn’t going to get the girl.
