Mating an alpha to a rogue terrified of alphas, and a bodyguard to the charge he can't have, sounded like cruel jokes played by the Goddess. But when a witch's curse strikes, these unlikely mates may be the only ones able to save all werewolves from downfall. ***** Ever since he was banished from his pack, River has feared alphas and their warriors. Thankfully, he was taken in by a sympathetic doctor couple and is now training to become a doctor himself in the castle on top of the hills of Winterpeaks; a sanctuary for wounded werewolves. River was happy with his new life, sheltered from bloodshed and survival of the strongest. But everything changed when Luan, the son of the strongest alpha of the West, was wheeled in one dreary night. (Book One of Luan's Wolf. This book contains a series.
