This is insane. This humanâ€”beautiful though she may beâ€”canâ€™t be my mate.
I learned the hard way what it's like to lose people you love.
As an alpha, I vowed never to let that happen again.
That means keeping my focus. Never letting my guard down.
And, most of all, staying away from civilians - i.e. humans.
But the feisty chocolatier has me breaking my own rules.
The beautiful female tests my patience... and all my control.
I should stay away. I can't protect the pack if I succumb to my desires.
But what if this is more than desire?
What if Fate matched me with this human, and she's my mate?
If I don't claim her, I'll lose it all in the worst possible way.
