Templeton Reed, skunk shifter, is having trouble sharing a mansion with wolf shifters, even if one is his beloved Mikel, the alpha of the pack. Winter has settled over Lupei mansion and cabin fever is pushing the pack into rowdy behavior. To counter the boredom, and to instill some decorum into his fellow wolves, Mikel announces a trip to the opera is in order.
At first, Templeton is thrilled to be attending such a prestigious event. He is, after all, a lesser breed, and has never been privy to such glamorous entertainment. Sadly, what starts out as a night of opulence and refinement turns into a murder mystery when Templeton discovers a body in the cheap seats. Who, or what, has killed one of the elite of the Lake Erie shifter community? Who is the stranger that arrives to oversee the murder investigation and why is he insisting on staying at Lupei Manor? Will Templeton survive long enough to see act two?

Sixteen-year-old Randy Clark just looked in the mirror and discovered he’s gay. Now all he needs is to find a boyfriend. The trouble is he’s got a knack for being attracted to the wrong kind of guys – straight ones! He would ask his best friend for help, but even though Blake knows all the gossip, he’s too busy dreaming about Marilyn Romer and trying to convince Randy to join the drama club to be any help. So instead, Randy turns to Jeremy Smith and the outrageous Annie Brock, but between their constant bickering and Annie’s obsession to put Mike Kowalski down every chance she gets, Randy’s not exactly feeling confident about their advice. Mix in a bigoted father, the world’s most irritating little brother, and the wannabe bullies in P. E. and Randy’s tenth grade year is shaping up to be one to remember!

To cope with his father's recent death from cancer, conscientious and straitlaced Midwestern graduate student Shea Matherson returns to his family's old vacation cabin, long since sold, in order to keep his final promise to his father. When he arrives at the cabin exhausted and injured, however, he’s surprised to encounter a trespasser named Jamie, a defiant and sarcastic wanderer with an intellectual streak who travels and works odd jobs to support his burgeoning writing career. As the pair resign themselves to sharing the cabin, they build a surprisingly intense bond: Jamie struggles to cope with the privileged but openhearted Shea as Shea struggles to cope with the death of his father. When their burgeoning closeness finally leads to a night of pleasure, they agree to enjoy a sexy weekend together with no strings attached.
What neither of them anticipate is that the passion or tenderness kindled in the heat of the moment will linger after they part ways. Or that when Jamie shows up at Shea’s door a week later for an unannounced stay, the feelings sparked by their cabin rendezvous will dismantle Shea’s comfortable, unassuming life…and tempt the stubborn Jamie to abandon his solitary journey.
