The Maya jaguar shifters have lived in the Sonoran Desert of Sonora, Mexico, for hundreds of years away from human eyes. However, their home is threatened by the building of a food and bakery manufacturing plant in Alamos, Sonora, owned by Groupo Susteno, a corporation that Rosa Carrillo, head of the Carrillo Cartel in Chihuahua, Mexico is a board member. She and her twin brother, Javier plan to use it as front for drug trafficking into the United States. It will make the quiet, colonial town of Alamos, Sonora, one of the safest tourist spots, just as dangerous as Chihuahua, with its high murder count. Alejandro Aapo Cadmael is the son of King Gabor Cadmael, who is training him to lead the tribe and help him choose a worthy queen. Alejandro has other plans, he prefers to hang around the music and art loving humans in Alamos, and play his guitar.
Regina Hightower is a human conservationist from Tucson, AZ who has a special ability to communicate with animals. When she arrives in Novajoa, Sonora on her way to Alamos for the ten day Alfonzo Tirado Arts and Music Festival, she gets more than she bargains for when a luggage mix up puts her in danger with three drug coyotes who work for the Carrillo Cartel. They think she has stolen five million dollars in cash from them.
