Alice is the Alpha's daughter of Jade moon pack. When she was 9 her father was killed in the werewolf war. Her mother died of the grief of losing her mate. Her brother Rick who was 17 took over the pack as an Alpha.
Due to her trauma and Rick being too young to protect her and manage the pack, she was sent away with her eccentric aunt who is a keeper. A human who can see supernatural beings and they are aware of the werewolves. Alice lived in different parts of the world and finally settled in London. She is more comfortable with her human side and doesn't want to return to the pack life or find her mate.At 24 Alice is an architect and engaged to Mark, a human who is unaware of her werewolf identity. He is also the heir of the firm she works in.
Lucian Blake the Alpha of the Crimson shadow pack has been looking for his mate for years. He has a ruthless reputation because he killed his father's Beta who was leading the pack after his father's death and took over the pack at the age of 18.
During her visit back home for Christmas, Alice bumps into her mate Lucian Blake, Alpha of the Crimson shadow pack. The most ruthless, dangerous and richest Alphas of the country.
Alice doesn't want to do anything with him but Lucian is not ready to give up their mate bond. He stalks her and rescues her from a kidnapping attempt by roughs.She escapes but he chases her to her pack where he threatens to attack and wage a war unless she comes with him.
Alice strikes a deal with him, saying she would live with him and see if they are compatible, but would not let him mark her unless she is sure. He reluctantly agrees.
She has a hard time dealing with his ruthless and overbearing nature, she has to deal with pack issues. Distrustful pack members and jealous Ex gf of Lucian. Alice tries to defy and drive away Lucian so that he would break the mate bond mutually, but he doesn't relent. She becomes a good friend with one of the Pack member Savannah. Savannah guides her on how to break the mate bond but it doesn't work.
Alice eventually starts respecting and liking Lucian when she finds out he is the same boy who had helped her during the werewolf war in which her father had died. However, she doesn't consider herself good enough for Lucian. Lucian rejects her.
She also decides to break her engagement with Mark. Mark gives her a surprise visit and despite Lucian's anger and disapproval, she meets Mark.
The rogues attack again and she shifts to save Mark. He freaks out and also says not to return to work. He doesn't want anything to do with her. Lucian saves her again.
Alice realizes humans would never accept her and not everyone is as accepting as her mother and sister-in-law. Both were turned werewolves.Alice expected Lucian to be furious instead he consoles her. She realizes he is not bad and accepts the mate bond and becomes the Luna of the Crimson shadow pack.
To examine the constant attacks and kidnapping attempt on herself. Alice starts investigating her father's death and finds out her mother belonged to a rare bloodline of ancient oracles, or witches and Alice is a mix of werewolf and which made her a hybrid. His blood is powerful for blood magic.Alice was sent away with her aunt to protect her from a coven of witches and a few Alphas who wanted Alice.
The witches want her dead because they consider her an abomination and want to use her blood for blood magic. Some pack Alphas want her for her magical bloodline.The original attack on her father was for the same reason. Lucian's father was not involved in killing Alice's father it was his Beta. Hence, Lucian had killed him to take over the pack.Her mother died protecting her. Her brother Rick even though he had witch's blood he didn't have those abilities because witches were always female.
Now Rick's 5-year-old daughter is their new target. During a mating ball. Where different packs assemble for finding their mates. The little girl gets kidnapped and Alice is lured out to save her. Finally, the witch and those who betrayed them are killed and Lucian and Alice live happily ever after.
Alice -Being a Luna was never part of my plan but it was my destiny and now I was loving it. I am Alice Anderson a hybrid wolf with a werewolf father and a mother who was a witch. Apparently, that makes me special. Not always in a good way.After going through several trials and tribulations I was finally at ease with Lucian. I am Luna of the Crimson Shadow pack and Lucian Blake is my mate.Generally, life was good. I loved living in the pack and there weren't any more death threats.“Please put the couch here,” I instructed the betas and omegas who were hauling the furniture into our newly renovated home.I had designed the interiors myself. It had been a tedious and tiring process especially when Lucian was barely interested. He had given me the free rein to do whatever I wanted, with the house. It was a good thing, but I was expecting him to be a bit m
The weather was fine, although the sky was cloudy. The worst of winter had passed, and the wonderful spring was arriving. Birds from the south had returned and sang their beautiful symphony. The wicked snow was gone, replaced by a vast carpet of grass. Flowers of many kinds had blossomed and filled the air with their fragrance. This was the best time of the year to have a housewarming. It was an intimate party with Rick and Lenora's family. We had also invited Emma, Damon, the pack Betas and some close friends. Aunt Flora was away on one of her impromptu trips. We already had a pack run and the barbecue party with the whole pack the previous evening. Kids played in the garden while I relaxed with Emma and other ladies on the patio overlooking the river. I gazed at Emma and other girls fussing over their babies and older kids. Even Katherine had Namara to look after. I knew what I had to do. Have Lucian's babies. I picked up my piña colada and smiled absentmindedly. "Are you even lis
One good thing which had ensued during those troublesome days, when Regina threatened us, was the regular training. Lucian made me get up early every morning to train with him and his betas in the gym. That habit had remained. Compulsory training was part of the pack rule now, irrespective of gender. Whenever I trained with Lucian, I would usually limp out of the gym, sore from all the times that I got pinned down by him. Me being his mate did not prevent me from getting as rigorous training as the rest of the pack. Wolves, respect strength and are instinctively inclined to submit to someone stronger than themselves. Hence, Alphas need to maintain their strength. Lucian was such an exacting taskmaster, he sparred with me himself. And he never held his punches. I loved the challenge and enjoyed it. The sex between Lucian and me was hotter after our training sessions. We would shower together and squeeze in a wild and satisfying romp in the shower after each training session. We wo
Alice - After meeting Rossi girls and convincing them to join the training, I returned with Katherine. Lucian and I needed to talk. If Gregory's brother had escaped, he could be a potential threat. "You seem upset," Katherine said while I drove back to the packhouse. "I am feeling bad about the humiliation and fear those girls went through. I haven't tried reaching out to the new pack members. Things were so busy in the last year that they slipped off my mind. I feel like a failure." I lamented. "Don't say that, Alice. You have been the perfect, Luna. There has always been, and will always be such packs. When the Alphas turn out to be crazy, the pack suffers. My parents belonged to such a pack. " "I thought you always lived here!" I exclaimed, turning to face Katherine. "I was born here, but my parents were from the now decimated Blue-star pack. Their Alpha was weird. They had many rules around ranking. Mating with humans was forbidden. If any higher-ranking female had a lower r
Lucian -It was early morning when Alice and I headed out to Azure beach, our chosen destination. It was the latter portion of March. I could sense her feeling a bit guilty about taking me away from the pack. I smiled."Don't worry, they can live without us for a few days, they are in good hands," I assured her, hearing her thoughts."That's good to know, have you been away from the pack before?" She asked while leaning back in her seat, arching her back a little. She looked a bit odd."Several times, I keep taking business trips. Daniel and my friend Garrett even went backpacking through Europe right after college. So, it's not like the pack has never been on its own before. Alice, what the fuck are you doing?" I asked as Alice moved her hands seductively on my jeans.My muscles bunched and jumped as she lovingly rubbed my thigh. Up and down she went, sometimes barely skimming over my pants, sometimes kneading the muscle underneath. I cast a sidelong glance at her. Her mischievous sm
Alice - By afternoon, we had made it to the spot he wanted us to be in. It was a typical shack on a beach, just at the edge of a forest. "What is this place?" I asked, staring at the crashing waves. "Do you like it?" He grinned at me. The wind blew against his hair, messing it up. He looked cute. I didn't see anyone else around. "Is this a private beach?" I asked. "Kind of. This is the former pack land on the Black Stone pack. I was going to sell it off as the pack has already shifted to our area, then I came across this! Now, I don't know what to do? It's beautiful," he said, enthralled. The beach was indeed beautiful. The sand was softly golden with just the right comforting warmth, like a cosy hug, one only matched by the sunshine-filled sky. Lucian stretched out both arms and legs to look like a boy-starfish, his grin growing slowly into a broad smile. The waves washed the sands in white lace. "It's too beautiful to be sold," I exclaimed. "Yes, but I don't know what to do
Alice -Our time ended much too quickly. I loved every minute of it. We hunted, explored, and fucked to our heart's content. I was sad when it was time to leave.I realized that this was the most amount of time Lucian and I had ever spent together, alone. We blended so well it surprised me. We didn't have anything like a honeymoon or even much of a real date. Our relationship just materialized into existence out of thin air, but it did feel solid.As we drove back towards home. I contemplated our relationship and life. Lucian seemed lost in his thoughts. It was a comfortable silence between us.We reached the pack land in the late evening. I yawned and stretched my body, I badly needed some rest."Go in and get some rest? I have some work to catch up on." Lucian spoke while taking out our luggage."I am not tired. Let's meet the pack. Katherine and I need to talk." I pressed my lips in a grimace.Lucian chuckled."Come on! I am sure she gave you that drug in a good faith. Don't be hard
Author's note - This chapter contains gore and violence. Please be warned.***********Olivia - I was woken by the agonizing screams. Panic and terror momentarily paralyzed me as the memories of rape and brutal beatings overwhelmed me. I tried to move my arms, but a sharp pain shot through my body. One of my eyes was swollen to shut, so I had to make do with one eye. Peering in the dark, I saw one of those monstrous shapes moving.I shivered in a cold cell and pulled myself into a sitting position on the damp earthen floor.I was locked in a nightmare, and there was no escape. Fear had been my constant companion in the last week. I craned my neck to hear the dull slap of flesh against flesh, accompanied by the shrieks that echoed in the murky darkness of the prison. They were doing it again.The smell of blood and death overlaid the dank smell of decay. The shrieks had now reduced to a whimper. I wished to die, it was preferable to the monster I had turned into. I had become a monster
