Although they have met just once, at a train station in Japan, Elaine Chieko Packard and Connor McKenzie have been haunted ever since by passionate dreams they cannot control. They determine to resolve the tension between the moral strictures of their religion and their own overpowering emotions by eloping, a decision that triggers an entirely unexpected series of events.
Ami Tokudaiji is a kitsune (a Japanese werefox) from an aristocratic family whose fortunes are threatened by a financial scandal. Yuki Yamakawa is a werewolf from the wrong side of the tracks. When they end up in the same homeroom class at Osaka's most exclusive girl's school, Yuki is determined to make Ami her new best friend--if they don't kill each other first.
