'Scent' is told in the first-person perspective of Bianca 'B' Wisetail. B is called the Last Circulator with no other Circulators born after her. She is the cherished only child of Jessica and Hunter Wisetail; a mother who is a Circulator and a father who is a Lokoti Werewolf. However on the night of a full moon before her 18th Birthday, a new surprising feature arises inside of B that throws the Lokoti Tribe's long history of the 'Lokoti Werewolf' upside down.
The world outside is recuperating after World War Three with the Lokoti Werewolves protecting the borders of the Lokoti National Park in Alaska against marauders. Inside the tribe, the families are closed-knit where everyone knows everyone. One of these families are the Sabre family who are the only non-Lokoti invited to live on tribal lands. As B is best friends with Derik who is the same age as she, it's a different story with Derik's older brother Declan.
Declan is a European Werewolf and an honorary member of the male dominated Lokoti Werewolf pack. He and B grow up fighting each other just as Declan fights for the tribe's safety as he patrols the borders with the other Werewolves. Declan's sarcastic comments and his biting one-liners are constantly aimed B's way. However after B's change, their fiery exchange turns into something else... a forbidden love. Declan knows because of his breed of Werewolf that his secret affection for the tribe's Last Circulator and first female Lokoti Werewolf would be frowned upon.
European Werewolves are classified the most dangerous breed of Werewolf in the world. Although Declan was trained the Lokoti Werewolf way to curb his deadly hunger, prejudice still arises. Instead of Declan placing B on a pedestal? With his European Werewolf personality he pounced instead. European Werewolves just love a good fight, which was exactly what Declan got when he secretly chased the tribe's only female Werewolf.
From the mistrust towards his breed, Declan is forced to silently watch B's arranged marriage to another member of the pack. Although her husband is a good man, B comes to miss the chemistry she shared with her supposed worst enemy. Navigating their rocky romance, B and Declan also have to contend with human looters carrying shotguns loaded with silver bullets, the odd European Vampire, other European Werewolves who are still man-eaters and even a sensitive issue that human couples may face; a barren marriage. With such an obstacle course that could make a new driver hug a traffic cone for comfort; B and Declan find not only passion but absolution in their bloodlust-fueled desires.
