Outcast: The Alpha King's Beloved
Chapter 94 Wedding
Outcast: The Alpha King's Beloved Jennifer Smith was Alpha's daughter. Her family was destroyed by traitors in their pack. Her mother died of an illness; her father was murdered by the Beta; and her pack was taken away. Alone and stranded, Jennifer escaped to the Dark River Pack, where she lived as a slave. Although she was continuously abused and insulted, she never yielded or admitted defeat. Her mate turned out to be Anthony Jones, the lycan prince of Osman Kingdom. The Osman Kingdom ruled all the packs. But the noble prince seemed to have his own secret. Jennifer's strong power attracted the prince, and she was soon brought to the Royal Training Ground, where her fate changed forever. Hungry for revenge on those who had destroyed her family, Jennifer focused on training hard and getting stronger. Would Prince Anthony refuse Jennifer because of her humble identity? What would happen to them on the training ground? What would she choose between love and hatred? And what was the prince's secret? *************** Jennifer's POV:"Jennifer, you bitch! Where is my pearl necklace?" Barbara yelled from outside the door. Startled by her voice, I stuffed the pearl necklace back into the wooden box in a hurry, and then stashed the box under the pillow to hide it. I had barely straightened up from the bed when the wooden door of the room was kicked open. Barbara rushed in with a group of werewolves, followed by Luna Debra, whose face was covered with a thick layer of foundation, but unfortunately, it could not hide the wrinkles at the corners of her eyes. These two women always dressed up extravagantly, as if they wanted to flaunt all the jewelry they owned in a single outfit. "Luna Debra, Miss Barbara, what can I do for you?" I asked politely, saluting them as usual with a friendly smile on my face. "Jennifer, where's the pearl necklace I usually wear?" Barbara growled, grabbing my collar and glaring at me. "You bitch! You always have sticky fingers. You're the one who cleans my room. Where did my favorite pearl necklace go? I can't find it. Did you steal it?""Miss Barbara, I didn't take anything from your room. You can't accuse me without evidence," I replied patiently in a tone that was neither humble nor pushy. "You shameless bitch! How dare you talk to me like that? You want evidence? Let's find it right now!" Barbara spat, shoving me backward. Then, she turned to the werewolves she had brought along and ordered them to search my room. My small and shabby room was soon turned upside down. The old quilt on the bed was thrown to the floor, and the small wooden table and stool were kicked over with loud thuds. W...
The Alpha's Mysterious Mate (The Fate Series Book 1)
Chapter 154 Car Accident
The Alpha's Mysterious Mate (The Fate Series Book 1) Serena was a vampire-werewolf hybrid. Her parents were killed right before her young, innocent eyes and she was taken in by Alpha Tyler of the Black Moon Pack. They didn't exactly raise her. Instead, they turned her into a maid and even sold her as a sex slave later on. All these years, her only source of support was Brandon, Tyler's son. One day, after working herself to the bone, she discovered that Brandon had been cheating on her with his true mate for quite some time now. And as if it couldn't get any worse, it is revealed to her that Alpha Tyler was the killer of her parents. It felt like the world had completely turned against her. But all of a sudden, a handsome and soon-to-be powerful Alpha named Peter came into her life, claiming that she was his mate. With dangerous power in her blood that deemed her as a threat to vampires and werewolves alike, and a mysterious enemy that plotted against her in the dark, could Serena emerge victorious from all these trials with Peter by her side? *************** Serena's POV:"Hey, you, Serena! Get over here and clean this up!" one of the she-wolves shouted at me. She was having a picnic along with other she-wolves on the lawn. They carelessly threw all their trash-- wrappers, shells, whatever food residue they discarded-- on the grass around them. The trash can was not even that far. It was a few steps away from them. They could have thrown it properly themselves. But no, of course, they wouldn't do that because there was a lowly servant girl here. Throwing the trash was suddenly something they didn't need to do. I had just spent an entire hour cleaning up the chewing gum that was stuck on the steps of the meeting hall. My back and my waist were already very sore. With a deep sigh, I picked up a broom and went over to sweep their garbage. But when I saw that most of their trash was on the grass, I realized I couldn't sweep it out with a broom at all. "Hey, can you at least stop spitting the shells onto the grass? It's so hard to sweep." I gritted my teeth, trying to hold back the anger inside of me. "Don't sweep, then. Just pick them up with your hands one by one." The she-wolf crossed her legs nonchalantly and spat another pistachio shell on to the grass, right in front of my feet. Another she-wolf refilled the plate with more pistachios and looked at me mockingly. "Oh, whatever. Don't listen to her complaints. She can't disobey our orders anyway.""Well then, I quit." I dropped my broom and turned around to leave. "How dare you speak to us like that? Who do you think you are?" One she-wolf got up and blocked my way, splashing her drink on my face. The liquid dripped down and absolutely soaked ...

Seen by few living, Alpha Killian Desmond is whispered about throughout the world, his cruel reputation proven countless times. The ferocity of this man and his pack have been the source of many legends and nightmares. Most who have met him, have died at his hands. Claire Miller has lived a simple life as the daughter of the Beta in her pack. As the Moon Ball approaches, and every pack in the United States gather to meet, the sense of dread building inside of her grows.What will happen when Claire is thrown into the arms of the most ferocious and cruel Alpha known to man? Will she prove to be the exception to his malicious ways? Or will she suffer the same fate as countless others. *************** I forced my eyes open to the sound of my mother yelling my name. My intense hatred for waking up early is known throughout my house, so this happens to be a regular occurrence. Although my eyes are open and I'm awake, I lay in bed and let her continue to yell through the door for a few more moments. "Claire, seriously?" I hear my mother's wispy voice snap as she opens my bedroom door. With an annoyed grunt, I lift my head and meet her clear blue eyes with my own. My bright blue eyes were just about the only thing I received from my beautiful but stern mother, while my younger sister seemed to be an exact replica, sporting her slender figure, curly blonde hair, tanned skin, and high cheekbones. 'The good looks in the family' my mother had called it when she thought I wasn't listening. It wasn't that my father was ugly, but he was gruff with an enormous build and a scarred face from defending our pack years ago. While the women in my family had extremely slender figures my figure was curvier, my breasts and bottom continued growing, while the rest of me didn't. My hair sported the same look as my fathers, chocolate brown and straight as a pencil and my skin was the same pale color as his, only turning red when the blood rushed to our faces. The only redeeming quality about my hair was that it had grown extremely long at the beginning of the summer, so now it reached well past my waist. My face was round and baby-like, always making me look younger than what I am. My height was a whole different issue. The women in my family tend to be taller than the men, with my mother coming a few inches higher than my father. I missed the height gene all together. Standing at a whopping 5'3' both my mother and father towered over me. Even my younger sister had grown taller than me over the years. As I grew over the years, my mother and father realized I wasn't what they were wanting in a daughter. Strong willed, disobedient, insubordinate. Those were words my mother used to describe me. My older brother, Derek, the future Beta of the pack was the only one in my family to find my stubbornness an unexpected gift. They got lucky with my younger sister Sabrina, my mother liked to say, as she was the perfect little lady deserving of a quality mate. "I'm awake." I sigh, no

Read at your own risk. *************** Olivia’s P.O.V :I woke up to sunlight falling on my eyes. I sat up removing the blanket off my body and looked at the watch, my eyes instantly widen when I saw that I was five minutes late.“Oh no.” I sighed audibly in dismay and hurriedly started to get ready.I brushed my teeth, combed my hair, and braided them quickly; More like in the speed of the wind.I didn’t risk making a ponytail. Because last time I’d done that, the pack slut who thought I’m the ugliest person yet was still jealous of me cut some of my hair lengths; I loved my hair and when I saw her cutting my hair did feel bad but I had no right to argue or object, I was just like a slave in this pack; Not that I’d always been treated like this but life wasn’t the same anymore.I wore a gray shirt, black leggings and hurried to reach the kitchen, I quickly went downstairs praying all the gods in my mind to save me from facing anyone’s wrath.But As soon as I reached the kitchen my eyes met with those dark brown ones—My prayers definitely didn’t work.There stood Lucas the eldest of the triplets with his fists clenched and staring at me in a death glare that immediately made a shiver run down my spine.I understand in a blink that now I was going to be facing a lot of problems and unpleasant words.I inhaled deeply and gathered all my courage and meanwhile holding my breath before I bowed in Infront of him “Sorry Alpha, I became late because..” he didn’t let me finish.“Because You were fucking some man till late night right? You’re such a worthless piece of shit.” He slammed his fist on the counter making me flinch; The loud sound echoed throughout the room for quite

If it wasn't for the sound of her legs rustling against the leaves and the raucous men chasing after her from behind, she was damn sure her stolid breath would've been overheard. "Faster!!!" "We're losing her!!!" The men yelled from behind, and tho she was scared, she made no attempt to look at them. The little one whined in her arms - the little one which she held to her chest, wrapped in a thick fabric. She must be so tired from all the running already. "I'm sorry, baby. I'm sorry" the woman whimpered and increased her pace. How does she lose the men behind her? The forest was extremely dark with just a dim reflection of the moonlight aiding her path. A light sob racked her throat and suddenly, she felt a sh...

Pure fear, the sort of fear that makes your skin itch. When you can feel every hair on your body rise. When you feel like your skin is crawling. Fear that makes your body freeze, paralysing you on the spot, that’s the sort of fear I felt when I heard her blood-curdling scream. The only thing was I was her big sister, so I couldn’t run away. I had no choice but to move, to go to her. I forced my legs up the front porch of the Pack house, running in the direction I could hear her screaming my name. My feet pound on the floorboards in panic. I’m moving so fast, I felt myself slipping on the hallway rug, making me skid along the floor and into the wall. My head and shoulder twist at an awkward angle into the kitchen door frame, with enough force that black dots danced in front of my vision. My collarbone and shoulder send shooting pain through my body as I feel my shoulder dislocate on impact. “Aria! Aria!” Her petrified scream echoed through the house. Jumping to my feet, my head spun. I turned the corner into the kitchen to see the Alpha dragging my sister by her hair into the basement with a whip in his other hand. I start running to her, grabbing the basement door frame just in time for him to slam the door shut on my fingers. My own scream escapes my lips in agony. I reach for the door handle, only to find it's been locked. I start trying to yank my hand free. I could hear her crying and screaming for me on the other side of the door. “LEAVE HER ALONE!” I screamed at him, slamming my body into the door, trying to free my fingers and get in. Not being able to get a run-up, I threw my body with all my might towards the side where my fingers were stuck, the door moving just enough for me to free my injured bloody mangled hand. My fingers were definitely broken as they twisted and jutted out
The Alpha King's Daughter
"Dad I've told you a hundred times, I don't need a body guard." I growled, my eyes locked on the god-like man at his side.Arabella Adair, the only heir of the Alpha King, detests her strikingly handsome yet silent body guard. A mask shields half of his face, leaving only his intoxicating eyes and tousled hair revealed. The strange gloves he constantly wears, and the refusal to speak continues to drive Arabella mad. In the midst of the chaos in her Kingdom, she sets her attention on her body guard. Her insane attraction to her mysterious body guard fuels her need for the truth. More determined than ever, she plans to use everything at her disposal to uncover his secrets. *************** "Dad, I've told you a hundred times. I don't need a bodyguard." I groaned, flopping down on my bed. My dad was quiet for a while, but I could still sense his presence in my room. "You know he's only trying to keep you safe." My wolf, Aela, scolded me. "Arabella." My dad's stern voice called out and I reluctantly sat up and met his silver eyes. I could feel the power of the Alpha King fill my bedroom and I resisted the urge to shudder. Aela grumbled, "We'll you've done it now." His Alpha power didn't affect me quite the same, being his daughter had some perks. Nonetheless, I resisted the urge to cringe under his intense gaze. I sighed, knowing this conversation was going nowhere. "Yes dad?" "You will behave and let your bodyguard protect you." His commanding voice filled my ears and I resisted the urge to roll my eyes. All of the training I had endured wouldn't change his mind. He insisted I was no match for his enemies, not without becoming Queen. He refused to relinquish his title while I was mate-less and had more motivation than ever to assign me an unwanted bodyguard. "Fine." I snapped, "But you know I'll never behave." I crossed my arms and looked out of my bedroom window, letting my eyes roam the massive garden out back. My dad gave me a sympathetic smile and sat on the bed, "Arabella, you know this is the last thing I want. We have enemies everywhere. I have to make sure you're safe." I huffed and kept my gaze trained on the gardens. There was no way I planned on playing nice, not while what little freedom I had was being taken away. "I can't lose you too Bella." I could hear my dad's empty voice and my heart squeezed. My green eyes met his own as I looked at how broken-hearted he truly was. I had lost my mother only a year ago, and my father had lost his mate. My dad had an image that he put on for the world to see. A firm and borderline cruel Alpha King who would keep his people safe. Only I and my mother were allowed to see this side of him, the side with feelings. Unable to hold onto my anger, I frowned at him. "When will he be here?" I rolled my eyes when my dad's face broke out into a relieved grin, and I couldn't hold back the small smile that played on my lips. "Tomorrow morning." My dad nodded, giving his phone a quick glance. He hardly had any ti

His eyes locked with mine and I could feel the strength of the mate bond gnawing at me, but I forced it down. Devin eyed me with annoyance and prominent in his gorgeous grey eyes.“Alpha Devin, this is my daughter.” Papa Jamie said with pride in his voice. Devin gave him a weird look, but turned to me instead. Before he could speak I cut him off with a surveying look from head to toe. He was still as hot as hell if not more; his body was more built and his face more chiseled than before. He looked all man and sue me for finding it sexy. mate bond. My eyes were void of emotion as I looked at the pack that flanked him and back into his stormy grey eyes. I stuck out my hand with a smirk on my face, “Welcome to the Blue Moon Pack.” He grasped my hand and shocks ran up my arm and through my body as it did his causing his eyes to widen, but before he could react I continued. “I am Alpha Allison Trust Wells.” My tone oozed confidence and mirth.

Dragging myself from the tiny bed, I walked into the bathroom to wash away the remnants of a difficult night. My name is Allison Trust, a werewolf Omega in the Full Moon pack and today; 9 August 2012 is my sixteenth birthday. Typically today would be the day I find my mate, but since I haven't shifted into a wolf like others my age, I'm not holding my breath. My parents; Asher and Hannah Trust were the Beta and Beta Female of the pack before they were taken and killed by rogues eight years ago when they took me out to the lake to play. Alpha Austin refused to believe my words when I told them how my parents were injected with something by strange men before being dragged into the forest. From that day forward I was treated differently by the pack, everyone was convinced that the rogues would have been spotted by the border patrol since they found me passed out in a tree not long after. I was reduced to an Omega and everyone including my brother, Hunter blamed me for their deaths. Every day I wish my fate was different, I wish my parents were alive and my brother didn't hate me, but I have nowhere else to go and without a wolf I wouldn't last long in the forest. This morning being no different from every other one of the past few years, I rushed to the kitchen to prepare breakfast for the pack. It's a mammoth task to prepare for the tens of people who are up and ready to head out, but after years of practice, it's practically second nature. In a strange wa

When Ryder sees Brook for the first time recognizes her as his mate. He wants to protect her from all the abuse she suffers, but Brook would rather suffer than risk her mother becoming the grief-stricken shell she was before. As a war between Ryder's pack and Black Mountain breaks out, Brook must decide just how far she will go to save the ones she cares about. *************** When I was ten years old, a drunk driver crashed into my father’s car. They said it was so bad you would have a hard time telling where the drunk’s car ended and my father’s began. Dad died instantly. Thank God, but it devastated Mom. For a long time, I thought I might lose her too. Slowly, Mom got better, well, sort of. She stopped starving herself or spending hours in her room crying and started acting like a somewhat normal person. Only she wouldn’t laugh or smile. Mom didn’t do that until she met Harry Ford. They met in Minnesota while Mom did extra training for her job and they began dating. Mom had started going back to the way she was before. There was only one minor hitch about this whole boyfriend thing, though. Harry wasn’t exactly human. When they got serious, Harry revealed his secret to Mom. Somehow, he didn’t pick up on the fact Mom sucks eggs at keeping secrets. Not even five minutes passed before she told me. Luckily for Harry, I can keep secrets. You see, Harry’s a werewolf. I know what you’re thinking — run, this guy is totally crazy! That’s exactly what I told Mom, so she convinced Harry to do the change into a wolf thing in front of me. As cool as the shift thing was, I found it also disturbing. I mean, what is not disturbing about your mom’s boyfriend stripping down to his boxers in front of you? Oh, the icing on the cake? Apparently, he and Mom were destined to be. Mates, Harry said, and wanted us to come live with him in Minnesota. Now, Harry made Mom happy without a doubt, so I figured I would overlook his canine inclination and agreed to move to another state. Besides, I had nothing keeping me in Chatham. After Dad died, I lost all my friends. The worst seemed to be over, and in all truth, what did I have to lose, right? As it turns out, I still had things to lose, and the worst was far from over. This is the story of how my one simple plan to get out alive was torn to shreds and stomped into the ground.
The Beasts Slave |18+
Chapter 71 Bonus chapter
The Beasts Slave |18+ His descent was like nightfall. River Arden is a slave, born and raised she knows nothing more than servitude. After centuries of peace on the human lands, there is sudden destruction and massacres as creatures feared by all arrive. Some call them Lycan gods, Werewolves... to her, they are Beasts of men. Her life is not made easy when the war Lord Lycan known as Hadrius, feared by all, develops an interest in her. *************** River crouches low by the tall river reed, body juddering in slight anticipation as she watches the girl and boy run hand in hand, periodically casting slight glances over their shoulders assuring themselves that no one had followed. It was the boy who pressed her steadfast against the tree, messy fumbling of stark youthful hands that touched and groped all she bared. River moves slightly in the swamp, swatting at a stray fly that buzzed noisily beside her ear. She was far enough not to be seen, and close enough to gaze in morbid slight fascination at his calloused coal stained hand that slid beneath the girl's dress, higher and higher still revealing soft pale legs, unmarred by scars and coagulated bruises like River's. There is something sonorous and resonant to their intimacy that grows heated and wild, as he touches something hidden beneath the girl's garments. River knows what it is and the thought wraps fingers of flames around her neck and face, as though he were touching her himself. She shifts, heart drumming against her sternum as the two begin to move from the tree. The girl steps away from him with that start of a slow sultry smile, her hand rises up to the white satin ribbon that holds handfuls of golden span hair which shimmers as though granted the rights by Helios himself. It falls along the soft curve of her shoulders and the cotton dress whispers to the earth's floor, leaving her bared to him in nothing but white underwear. River sucks in a shallow breath, dulling out her environment, and the cold autumn wind that brushes along the nape of her neck offers scant relief from the heat that pooled in her belly. The boy follows her as they step over vaguely rising grass before she lowers herself onto t...
The Alpha King's Claim
Chapter 152 Book 2 - Chapter 58 - Epilogue
"Love me or hate me, either way I'm already on your mind. I win. You lose." *** As the Alpha King of all werewolves and lycans, Aero needed to be fair to all. He ruled with an iron fist, a steady head and a balanced emotion. He was perfect in everything except for one. He had issues with the opposite sex. Since a child, he hated women. He never liked them and always avoided them. However, what if a woman suddenly materialized on his bed just as he was about to sleep? How could he avoid her then?

Whenever there was an art show near Manhattan, I make it a point to go check the artworks and possibly buy one. Or two. Or three of them. What I look for in a painting were the strokes the painter uses, the use of colors and how they blend in with the picture in general, and of course, the drawing. I had always been a sucker for fantasy-inspired paintings. Fantastical landscapes, mythical creatures, men and women wearing weird clothing, oh yes, I collect them all. They always reach out to a part of my soul that I had been guarding since I lost my parents. They always call out to a part of me that I wasn't sure what. Maybe, my parents as painters could be the reason. They influenced my tastes after all. But deep inside me, I knew there was always something special about these types of paintings I couldn’t quite figure out. One rainy day, I ran across an antique shop in downtown Manhattan about to be closed by the bank for bankruptcy. The different antique displays were spread all over the street in the hopes that some passers-by would still buy them. I caught sight of a beautiful painting of a landscape. Breathtaking it was and purely, for lack of a better word, out-of-this-world. The painting showed a mountain range with its slopes covered in autumn trees. In the center of this mountain range, just nestled on top the hill was a silver-plated castle. The details were extraordinary, magical even. I couldn’t resist its call, so in the end, I bought it. Plus, I didn’t want it to be wet with the rain. I wanted to give it a home. The antique shop owner, an old lady probably in her late sixties, was gracious enough to give me a discount considering the painting had smud...

All the trees were uprooted, fences around the Alpha's territory were broken clearly indicating the trespassing of the rogues. There were small pools of blood on every second step on the ground, furs and hairs of both human and wolves as well. There would have been a struggle made by the one who was attacked surely! "Alpha! There is nothing in the south."... The warrior shouted loudly whilst peeping down on the ground from above the tree where he was standing in order to get clear and smooth access to the area. "I can see nothing in miles."... He continued to refer to his alpha, who stood with a sword in hand and blood covering his fair beard face. He was tall, with fewer wrinkles around his eyes as compared to other wolves of his age, tall, well-built torso and pa...

Chapter 75 63
His Luna My name is Alyaez Turner and I never wanted a mate. All I wanted was to leave my mother and start a new pack, a fresh start for me and I knew I wanted this which is why I ask myself the same question every damn day. Why the hell did I attend the mating ball? Then I think back to myself, if I hadn't gone, I would never have met the love of my life and learned many things about my life. All I can say now is that I don't regret attending because now I am His Luna. *************** NOTICE: To all the people from moboreader, first this book was not initially written on moboreader meaning there are messed up chapters and characters through out it, I don't know why that is because when I look at it, it is fine but you guys see something different. Second, I know the storyline may be messy, but I was 13 when I started the book, and 15 when I finished it, so please understand I was not nor am I currently a professional writer. And lastly, due to this book being wrote on a completely different platform there is a author's note (A/N) at the end of almost every chapter because it is traditional to have it there, at least for the platform I came from. I hope you all enjoy! Alyaez POV- Sitting in my room, I groan as my mom continues to talk about the mating ball. She has been in my room for the last hour, lecturing me about how I can and cannot act and when I can and cannot speak, all that good stuff, "I cant believe it! My baby... going to find her mate, tonight!" mother squeals. I face palmed myself, I dont understand why I have to go. I have lunasegnimarkings. "Why do I have to go when ourmoon goddess Devanearhas blessed me?" I ask mom as she starts to do my hair. She sighs, "you mustnt let any of the males see your luna segni. They will not want you as a mate, but as a weapon." "Mom, you didnt answer my question... why do I have to go when I am one of the most powerful wolves in the world? I dont need a man to take care of me." I spoke harshly. My mother stops doing my hair to turn me around to slap me across my face. "Neverspeak that way of your future mate again! Youll be lucky if Devaneargives you someone who can get rid of you, finally, " she says in a deadly tone, glaring at me before continuing...
Alpha's Slave | 18
Chapter 44 New Book
Alpha's Slave | 18 "Be a good girl, and get on your knees." To make ends meet, Larkin is sold off by her father as a slave. Having lived a sheltered life, Larkin hopes that her crush and long time sweet admirer would purchase her but the custom goes terribly wrong when a mysterious man appears out of nowhere and lays claim on the innocent girl. No one knows of his origins, but few speak of the man that resides in the forest. He is violent. He is ruthless. He is deadly. He will do more than simply claim her body. Mature themes, violence, BDSM, dominant males. *************** The day was dark despite it being one of the most celebrated instances during the year. Heavy dark clouds billowed in from the West, and with it came the thick heady scent of rain threatening to pour and disrupt the occasion. Inayah peered up at the sky and sighed lowly, pressing into her friend sitting beside her on the wagon whose wheels bumped on the weathered road it tread. "It's so cold, " Anita whispered and Inayah agreed, wordlessly securing an arm around her friend and pulling her close to her side. The nuzzled against each other's sides in tensed silence as familiar rooftops slowly came to view. Thin wisps of billowing smoke rose from thatched roofs, and soon came the drifting banter of children and adults as they moved about - from their homes towards the main hall. Inayah exhaled a cloud of warmth that wicked into the cold dull evening air. She was exhausted but knew that sleep, especially now, was almost forbidden. The slave market held annually at the village as girls born and raised within the middle and lower class were to be sold to the highest bidder at the auctions. Myriads of girls would be attending from the ages of eleven to nineteen being the oldest and possibly the most ready for marriage. Inayah's gaze listless wandered over the barren crop land, dried out corn husks billowing lazily in the wind. She knew the time had come for her to be auctioned off a slave, the money given to her poor-ridden family. Despite the fear that leaped in her throat, there was relief and certain warmth in knowing that her value, though small, would ease their burdens. It had been two days since t...

After losing her parents in a rough attack she had been sent away to live with her aunt, a keeper.Alice was what one would call an urban werewolf who had no intention of finding her mate.But things didn't turn out as expected when the most handsome, powerful and dangerous Alpha of US claimed her as his mate. With her wolf in the heat but her mind warning her against the union. How will she resist being his Luna? *************** The loud beeping of my phone roused me from sleep, I shut the alarm and snuggled under the covers for few more minutes. I usually take time in waking up, so I have set an early alarm. I finally dragged myself out of the bed and quickly got into my daily routine. I am an architect, at 24, I am one of the youngest employees of Barton & Tom one of the leading Construction firms in London. Grabbing my coffee, I walked onto the train. I always keep my headphones on because I can hear everything. I mean literally, everything. I have extraordinary senses because I am not normal. I have extraordinary speed, agility, and strength. No, I am not some superhero, I am a werewolf, however, unlike most werewolves, I do not live in a pack. No, I am not a rogue wolf either. I belong to one of the most powerful packs of North America, 'The Jade moon pack'. I am very much in touch with my older brother the Alpha of the pack Rick Anderson and the pack Beta, Bobby. My father's beta Thomas Jackson, and his lovely wife Martha. I even visit my pack annually during Christmas. However, I prefer living independently. Rather, I have got used to this lifestyle. There is a reason why I live away. When I was 9, I had accompanied my parents to New York City for some inter-werewolf conference, I was overly excited about the trip. As we were staying right in front of the central park. But things did not turn out as expected. I do not remember much but my father died trying to protect me from the rogues and other packs. Werewolves are violent and territorial. They fight over the littlest of things. My father died in a were war. My mother died soon after due to a broken heart. They were mates. That is one of the reasons I do not want to find my mate. The mated wolves are like two halves of a soul. They either die or turn mad with grief if their mate is l...

The contents of this book are graphic and light BDSM involved.Feel free to check out the sequel: *The Faye Queen*! *************** Nikolai "Are you sure she is here?" Alexander asked me as we stepped out of the car. "Yes. My men have found her." I replied. I wouldn't be wasting my time like this if I wasn't sure. Alex was an old friend of mine. He was a part of my pack before he met his mate and joined the Wintercrown Pack. And now he needed to rescue his omega mate before she is auctioned off. Apparently there was an attack on his pack. The attackers were unknown but they stole a lot of money and kidnapped females. Their Alpha was killed because of which his twenty year old son had to stand up as the new Alpha. Too many lives were lost and the pack was still unstable to go get so many females back and potentially risk getting into a war. So Alex approached me. And here we were, in New York, half way across the world from Jivan, the land I called home. "I want to kill them all." A growl left his throat. "You will not cause a fight." I spoke sharply. He isn't thinking straight. Having a mate does that to you. "We will get her and then get out. You pay for her right now, I'll have it wired back to you in a week or so. Remember - one mistake and she is gone forever." He grunted. The building was taller and grander than what I had expected it to be. It had a victorian architecture that looked like it was straight of of a fairytale. That's what they wanted the humans to believe though, that this was a safe haven and nothing could ever go wrong here. It looked like a perfect place for a luxury stay but I knew what actually goes down here. Auction of slaves. "Name." The guard at the door asked arrogantly. "Alpha Volkov." Mikhail answered. Recognition lit up the guard's eyes before I saw fear. His body stiffened before he quickly opened the door. The bidding had already started when we entered so we took our seats. The humans on the stage were between the age group of sixteen to twenty four, of varying sizes, colour and level of training. We could pick and choose which one we wanted according to our taste. The rest of the ballroom was decorated in black and red colours. The lights were strategically placed so that no one could see someone's face until the person wanted to show his face. High rise chandeliers hung from the ceiling, more to give off a luxurious look than to give off light. The entire room had tables around with people sat and in
Samantha didn't know what she was, until Alpha Jack and Luna Sara saved her from her old alpha. He was a sick man, driven mad by the loss of his luna and he abused Samantha for it. She was a true omega. Her new pack taught her that she was a gift from the Moon Goddess herself. She has the ability to calm any wolf and because of this gift, her new pack is thriving. She also causes every wolf to become extremely protective over her, because of this, it's doubtful that she will be blessed with a mate. A mate is supposed to be protective and it would be difficult for the Moon Goddess to find a wolf strong enough to withstand the pull of an omega mate.Samantha is glad that she won't have to worry about a mate. She doesn't want to trust anyone outside of her pack and strong males are extremely untrustworthy in her experience.Everything is going well until her old pack begs her new one for help. The pack's new alpha is Sammy's mate. Can Sammy trust the new alpha or will he mistreat her? Can she forgive her old pack and save them from themselves? *************** Samantha sighed as she got up. Alpha had hit her yet again last night. No matter what she did, he was always mad at her lately. She couldn't do anything right. She painfully pulled her small, eight year old body out of the closet that Alpha insisted that she sleep in. She quickly looked around and relaxed when she realized that he was already gone for the day. She remembered that they were having a new pack visit for some training today and reasoned that he left early to greet them. She better get to work while everyone was out of the pack house. Alpha wanted her to clean the house but she was forbidden from letting anyone see her. It made her life even more difficult. Alpha would hit her if she didn't get her work done but he would also hit her if anyone saw her. She didn't stand a chance most days but since everyone should be at training, she should have a few hours to clean. Hopefully she could most of her weekly cleaning done and Alpha would be pleased for once. She scurried down the stairs and decided to clean the common rooms first since those were the hardest to clean and the most used. She finished the entertainment room, kitchen and lounge. Now she just had to clean the library. She pulled her cleaning supplies into the room noisily and froze when she heard two sharp intakes of breath. She slowly started to back out of the room. "Stop" a powerful, deep voice commanded. Samantha closed her eyes. He was another alpha. She could tell by the voice. "I'm sorry Alpha. I thought that everyone was out training" she mumbled with her eyes still closed. "Come here" he commanded and she did as she was told. She opened her eyes and walked toward the two figures. One was a huge man with black hair and dark eyes. The other was a curvy woman with gray eyes and auburn hair. The woman smiled at her while the man frowned. "I'm so sorry. Alpha David will be so mad if he finds out that you saw me. Plea

Follow on their journey to find out. *************** I made my way inside the ballroom where the coronation was taking place. I didn't want to be a part of the ceremony because it would really hurt to see the one you have loved for so long take someone else as his partner. I wanted to be in that place but I knew that I was not the one he loved, he could never love me even if I was his mate because he found the one he loves. I am dreading to be a part of the ceremony and I have no choice but to attend it. Today is my 18th birthday and I am supposed to find my mate today. But, here I am attending the coronation of the one person I have been crushing on since I was a kid. To top it all Dylan is away for his Alpha training and I miss him terribly. He is the only one I can call family because my parents don't care about me. I don't remember a birthday where they wished me "Happy Birthday" and still, I have to be the one attending the ceremony today on behalf of the Alpha because next in line Alpha, my brother Dylan is away for training. I wish I was allowed to attend the training with Dylan. I really miss him at least he would have been with me if I went for the training, but unfortunately, I am not allowed to be a part of the Alpha training even after being an Alpha female, all thanks to my parents. I shook my head trying to get rid of all these thoughts and attend the ceremony I am here for. Maybe I can be lucky and find my mate as there are a lot of packs attending the coronation ceremony today. I mean a girl can dream right? On the other hand, it is good that I am not going to be alone at the ceremony because I will be able to spend time with my best friend Lavender. I mean if Dylan was here today then I would have definitely been alone because I am sure that
Confessions of the Alphas
Chapter 185 Book 3 Death by End
Confessions of the Alphas "Love me or hate me, either way I'm already on your mind. I win. You lose." *** As the Alpha King of all werewolves and lycans, Aero needed to be fair to all. He ruled with an iron fist, a steady head and a balanced emotion. He was perfect in everything except for one. He had issues with the opposite sex. Since a child, he hated women. He never liked them and always avoided them. However, what if a woman suddenly materialized on his bed just as he was about to sleep? How could he avoid her then?

THE AUTHOR HAS GIVEN MOBOREADER ONLY AUTHORIZATION TO POST THIS STORY IN THEIR APP. THIEVES WILL BE DEALT WITH ACCORDINGLY. *************** Paintings. I always love them. Whenever there was an art show near Manhattan, I make it a point to go, check the artworks and possibly buy one. Or two. Or three of them. What I look for in a painting are the strokes the painter uses, the use of colors and how they blend in with the picture in general, and of course, the drawing. I'm a sucker for fantasy-inspired paintings. Fantastical landscapes, still pictures, mythical creatures, men and women wearing weird clothing, oh yes. I collect them all. They always reach out to a part of my soul that I had been guarding since I lost my parents. They always call out to a part of me that I'm not sure what. Maybe, my parents as painters could be a reason. They influenced my tastes after all. But deep inside me, I knew there was always something special about these type of paintings that I couldn't quite figure out. One rainy day, I ran across an antique shop in downtown Manhattan about to be closed by the bank for bankruptcy. The different antique displays were spread all over the street in the hopes that some passers-by would still buy them. I caught sight of a beautiful painting of a landscape. Breathtaking it was and purely, for lack of a better word, out-of-this-world. The painting showed a mountain range with its slopes covered in autumn trees.

Omega to Luna
Nicole was just your average girl. Other than the fact that she's the Omega and the Alpha just happens to be a tad bit obsessed with her. No one liked her, not even her wolf would look at her twice. When life was going nowhere but down, someone showed the light on her. And man was he handsome. Unable to believe it at first, Nicole was dumbfounded in the face of her "mate." But he stole her without a second glance. The Alpha didn't like that very much. He didn't stop fighting for her back till his last breath, and even after that, the Luna wouldn't stop until she had her vengeance. But along the way she made friend after friend. To a mermaid to a pair of redheads, Nicole shared her love with everyone. Then when they thought they made friends with everyone, they adopted a new one. *************** Some might think that living in a pack is one of the best things that could happen to a person. You've got family and friends surrounding you at all times. But for me, I was the Omega. I was the slave/training dummy that everyone passed around. Plus, the Alpha would use me for his sexual pleasure. Him, being an unmated Alpha, his hormones are all over the place and he has no one to tell him no. I'm just his toy. I have to say though, Alpha Kane was something to look at. I might be one lucky girl to bed him, other than the fact that it isn't my choice. That's kinda a downfall. Geez, where are my manners! I'm Nicole Valentine. I was born in Dripping Fang pack, 2nd most powerful in the world. I was born of two brilliant people. Courtney and Terrence Valentine. Though I never met my father, my mother would always tell me his story. My father was one of the best trackers in the pack. He was beloved by all. After he passed no one looked at us the same. They saw us as worthless without him. That is how we became omegas. On the rare chance of someone having sympathy for my mother and me, someone else would tell us off quickly. I've become numb to the constant hate surrounding us. Today was just another blurred day. I had my mother's features. Black hair that hadn't been cut in so long that it curled up around my waist and her striking green eyes. Nothing to remember my father by. My mother and I were housed at the back of the pack, lost within the shroud of dense trees in a small dismantled cabin. My mother was standing in the kitchen over the stove. She shifted her weight over to her other leg and stirred whatever was in the pan. "Morning mamma," I planted a kiss on her cheek and peek over her shoulder into the pan of sizzling cheesy scrambled eggs. "Good morning love," she greeted back with a smile. Even in the worst place in town, she still had a smile light up a room. The sun must be jealous. "Allow me," I slipped the spatula out of her hand and slid in front of her. She chuckled and pulled the peanut butter out of the cabinet. Opening it for me, she shoved a spoon in it and turned to grab some cups. I picked up the spoon and began to eat the peanut butter w
The Beta's Daughter
122 | EPILOGUE
Arienne just wants to find her soulmate. But when she meets Samyak, she discovers that he's hiding a dark and painful secret that could tear them apart forever. *************** I yawned, rolling onto my side. I brushed against Jacob, and his hand began to trace lazy, abstract patterns across my hip. It was getting close to midnight. A slanting beam of moonlight fell across our exposed legs, making them shine silver. We were waiting up together on the night of my eighteenth birthday. We'd become official members of the Silver Crescent pack at sixteen, and that had been exciting enough – a ceremony held for all of us who'd turned together, with Jacob's dad, the Alpha, stood in front of the elders on a small wooden platform. We'd pledged ourselves to our pack, vowing to care for one another and, above all, to preserve the wellbeing of the pack. In our honour, we'd sworn, and his parents, Alpha and Luna, had looked down at us with pride. Ever since, we'd been able to mindlink, and had been permitted to join in training with the pack. But at eighteen something even more special happened. At eighteen, our true mates were revealed to us. Not immediately, of course. The Moon Goddess works in mysterious ways, and we've been taught from birth to trust in our paths. At eighteen the possibility of finding our mate is finally given: both of our scents mature, and, in adulthood, we may find one another. Jacob and I had grown up together, him the son of the Alpha and I the daughter of the Beta. We lived in the pack house, along with the Gamma and his family, a pair of twins called Ayon and Aron. More often than not, though, we referred to them as Double A, or just The Twins. They did everything in sync, and Jacob and I found it a little creepy at times. As they were so close, Jacob and I had teamed up, too. We were both only children, which is rare amongst wolves, so our bond had been formed early. He lived on the top floor of the four-story house. It was huge, and each floor held a cluster of rooms to suit the needs of the pack and those who lived there. The very top floor belonged to the Alpha and, when he found her, his mate, the Luna. Their floor was home to a secondary library, smaller than the pack library on the ground floor, as well as bedrooms, offices, and a small kitchenette. Those living in the pack house tend to eat together, along with the Omegas who live nearby and serve the food. I'd always felt bad for the Omegas, having to work tirelessly to cook and clean up after the higher ranking wolves. My birth right as the Beta's daughter meant that I didn't have to help, but I did as often as I could. My dad used to sigh at me and roll his eyes, but then he'd smile like he was proud of me. Once he'd whispered that I'd make a good Luna, but I had no claim to that title. Jacob nudged me, gently pressing his knee against mine. I sat up drowsily, pulling my long, wavy hair up into a messy bun. A few strands refused to cooperate, but I left them be
