New France, 1665. Mere hours before he’s due to be hanged, Joseph Côté, the notorious ladies’ man, escapes from his captors and takes on the identity of a Jesuit priest. With a military detachment in hot pursuit, the fake Father flees to the Seigneurie de Beaufort. The local men, eagerly awaiting the upcoming arrival of the filles du roy, welcome Côté with all the dignity due a priest. He’s fed like royalty, and learns the legend of Father Brind’amour, the werewolf hunter. And sure enough, Côté soon learns that once night falls, the quaint village of Beaufort is overrun with werewolves! Things only get worse for Côté when he falls for Marie Labotte, one of the filles du roy that nobody else seems to like. In his fight to save their lives, Côté becomes a worthy successor to the revered Father Brind’amour.
