What was she supposed to say?
"...it doesn't change the fact," she almost whispered as she pulled her hand away from his, Nolan's fingers clinging to hers for a moment, but never forcing. "that I don't belong here," Alina finished.
"You're wrong. You belong right here, next to me, isn't that obvious?" Nolan quipped, tilting his head and peering down at her with confusion in those intricate eyes. Alina might agree, if those eyes didn't stop pinning her down.
"You'll lead with me. My pack will love you. You'll birth my legacy..,"
Alina is a young, female werewolf that lives only with her mother, who has separated her daughter from the werewolf culture. They live secretive, careful lives to prevent violence. Alina doesn't even know what a pack is, let alone what benefits her mother has sacrificed as they live in exile.
When she meets Nolan, a wealthy Alpha werewolf with a crowded pack, she is thrown into an unknown world she has never seen. It brings more questions than answers for.
Most importantly; why did her mother hide this life from her?
