When an arranged marriage doesn’t include the rising alpha’s human fated mate, she has no choice but to challenge the primitive laws standing between her and destiny.

***This book is for readers of supernatural thriller romance who want more emotion than bedroom gymnastics. If the full experience is more your jam, pick up Rejected Mate by Nancy Corrigan instead.

Full description:
Born human and raised among wolves, Riley has always been an outsider, ranked below the omega. And according to her ex-boyfriend, Nic, not the kind of woman a future alpha marries.

With their current leader on death’s door, Nic returns to their pack lands, determined to find a shifter wife and take over, but Riley won’t let him ignore his feelings.

By his own words, Nic loves her.

And Riley will do everything in her power to make sure they end up together. But with shifters unable to have children with humans, the stakes are high, but not impossible.

There’s just that one little dark secret Nic has desperately tried to protect her from. After hearing the truth, walking away with a broken heart might have been safer. But there’s only so far you can go before tempting the beast reaches the point of no return.

Find out Nic and Riley’s fate in this gripping and heartrending paranormal romance that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last action-packed page.

This is a story in the Shifter World—created by urban paranormal fantasy author and storyteller of gritty suspense, Nancy Corrigan. Dana Archer is Nancy’s official clean (closed-door) pen name.

S.Lake ★★★★

"You're bleeding." She brushed back his fur and gently touched the skin around a long gash. "This wasn't from a fight, was it?"

He shook his head, the only answer he could give in his limited form.

She stared into his eyes. Not a hint of fear showed in her expression. She treated his dad and the other dominants with the respect owed them by avoiding eye contact. Never with Nic, at least not in private, but the rules were different around the other wolves. Riley had always understood the need for hierarchy among the members. In the pack's eyes, she was as low as one could be. In his, she was his equal.

"Shift and tell me why you decided to drag your sorry ass to my house. None of these cuts need my attention."

Not happening. Through his wolf's eyes, he felt nothing physical toward her. Only his memories reminded him of what it was like to love her. If he shifted? One whiff of her sweet fragrance, and he'd want to devour her.

On a huff, she pushed to her feet. She planted her hands on her flaring hips. "Fine, be stubborn. I'm in no mood. Go home and lick your own wounds."
