I was exiled by my pack three years ago when we found out that I’m a double alpha. Too powerful to exist amid my own kind. I should have been put to death, but the council spared me. Now, I have to live by a bunch of rules. I’m not allowed to take a mate. There are no babies in my future. Humans can never find out what I am.
At least it wasn’t a problem until now. I’ve been granted special permission to return to the pack. My sister is going to be mated. She wants me there. I’ve been granted two whole weeks. Once I’m among my own, I realize just how lonely I am. Just how sad and pathetic I’ve become. Existing instead of living. I want more. I want it all. There are those within my pack who stand in my way. Most of all, the alpha, Memphis Baywolf. I could crush him. I could crush them all, but…do I really want to go down that path?
I don’t want her here. That female is a threat to the pack. A loose cannon. I want her gone yesterday.
It doesn’t help that I’m more attracted to her now than I ever was. I’m drawn to her in ways I can’t explain. Taylor is clouding my mind. Using her powers to blind me and confuse me. It won’t work. I know how she operates. I’m onto her. I’m stronger than that. Made from sterner stuff. But the more I resist, the stronger the pull. What is she doing to me? I could lose my pack…could lose everything. Why does the thought of losing her hurt the most? It shouldn’t! She’s an enchantress. A beautiful, clever, irresistible enchantress and I’m lost. Drowning…
Nothing has changed over the years. I still want Taylor Nightshadow more than my next breath. I’m acutely aware of how much I missed her now that she’s back. How much I’ve pined for her. How much I wish she could stay. I want her to be mine. There are a couple of big reasons why that will never happen. For one, she can never take a mate. Taylor would be put to death. I can’t have that. Can’t see her hurt. Secondly, my best friend Memphis is in love with her even if he won’t admit it to himself. I’m not sure I can watch her walk away. I most definitely couldn’t watch him take her as a mate either. It seems that every option is flawed. I have to fight my feelings, or this is going to end in disaster.
Authors note: Lone Wolf is a standalone shifter romance. There are three love interests, so expect high steam levels and language that will make you blush!
