SEQUEL to Hunter *** "You," I snarled, my tempering flaring, even as my hand ceased its incessant shaking. "Are the worst thing I could have with me right now." The infuriating smirk grew as he stepped closer. "Am I, though?" He leaned in, his breath caressing my cheek. "I don't think you completely believe that, love." My eyes drifted closed as my nerve endings screamed where his lips pressed against my cheek. "It's okay," he whispered. "For a queen to lose control sometimes." *** Rebecca Randon is doing her best to ensure that in the wake of her newfound authority, she secures a peaceful transition. To make sure that humans no longer have to live in the shadows, afraid to step foot outside. To ensure the dark forces walking the streets do not run unchecked, secure in the knowledge that the vicious Hunter who had plagued them before hadn't made a move in months. When challenges to her position as Alpha are brought forward, Rebecca must quash those who deem her unfit. But when her past and disability are leaked and find the wrong ears, she realizes she needs an ally to assert her claim to her title. Of course, things only complicate themselves when the Alpha of Oshawa's pack is the first to answer her call. Jared Morgan, who gets on Rebecca's nerves like no other with his arrogant demeanor and unfairly attractive face. However, she must begrudgingly accept Jared as her pack's only hope for survival when a sinister threat rises in the East - a threat that will destroy everything in its path to take down Rebecca. After all, an Alpha cannot be compromised. And they certainly cannot be female. *** "Hello, my dear mate. I have missed you."
