Chances are, you've met one. You've passed him on the street and looked away to avoid his mesmerizing gaze. You've hurried on to resist his aura of power, your senses weakened, your face flushed and your mind cloudy. That is the lure of his world. And for the first time, you're invited to witness the passion...

THE PASSION is an erotic and intense saga of love and betrayal; a story of those who walk the line between man and beast. On the eve of a brutal murder deep in the quiet elegance of contemporary Manhattan, Alexander Devoncroix, retired ruler of the pack, realizes he has done his son and heir a terrible disservice. He has kept a secret for far too long, and his knowledge may have resulted in death and possibly murder. To unlock the mystery surrounding the gruesome crime, Alexander must finally reveal a tightly guarded chapter in the Devoncroix family history.

We call them werewolves. And in a world in which they hold the positions of power, human and werewolf segregation had become the norm. But for the first time, a human has been accepted by the leaders of the pack. In dazzling nineteenth-century Paris, we meet three pivotal players: the young human Tessa LeGuerre, who falls under the spell of a very powerful, very sensual werewolf; Alexander Devoncroix, the charismatic werewolf who adores humans too well, but whose loyalty is to the pack; and Elise, the imperial leader of the pack who lays claim to Alexander. Beloved "pet" of select members of the pack, Tessa naively embraces all things werewolf an ambition that results in unspeakable tragedy.
