Agony/Ecstasy Anthology: Caged by J.K. Coi
This is one of those stories with an ambiguous ending, but I liked it because it was dark and provided hints of an interesting world. J.K.

He still came with built-in weapons of razor teeth and pointed claws, the cunning viciousness of a wild animal, and the desperate determination of a caged one.
And she didn’t care.
