“This is the last time I am going to put up with these endless parties,” Ruben de Montrose, thought. He had enough of the constant parade of available she-wolves for his consideration. He had told the council, countless times, that he didn't need a mate to rule. He had no desire to tie himself down with just one woman. But did they ever listen?Ruben knew they had his best interest in their minds, but he was damn tired of everyone throwing available bitches in his face. And he did mean 'bitches,' literally. As the ruling Alpha of the Rivermoon pack, they expected him, soon after he had reached his two hundredth year, to pop an heir. All of his predecessors had found their destined mates during their second century of life, as was written in the ancient writings and promised by the Moon goddess Luna herself. Hence, the council wanted him to follow his ancestors. The bunch of them were a pain in his ass most of the time; they were so set in their ways and could not seem to let go of the archaic notion that a strong Alpha was a mated one.
Today was particularly awful! He had an Alpha meeting in the morning, which was completely useless, as everyone just screamed at each other rather than discuss the rogue attacks.Then he had to attend that awful party where every bitch in attendance was hoping to be considered for the exalted position of Luna. He was so fed up that he left within an hour, and was now driving back to his pack.
He was on a stretch of curvy road when he saw a white hatchback approaching fast. Instantly he knew he was going to be hit. He saw the red-haired girl in the driver seat, her eyes wide with terror. Her tires screamed as she tried in vain to stop. He swivelled the car at the last moment. Had he been a human, this would have been a head-on collision. But thanks to his enhanced instincts, he turned his car at the right moment…SCREECH.......the sound of metal scratching confirmed that his favourite Lamborghini bore the burnt. Then a THUMP and CRASH as the small car ploughed into the side, crashing into the boulders.
He pulled on the handbrake, killed the engine and leapt out of the car ready to tear her a new arsehole, but the look of horror and fear on her face stopped him. Her window was open.
“Get out of the car!” he yelled.“What? Oh fuck, fuck. I'm so sorry. Are you alright?” She turned towards him, and Ruben stopped in his tracks as the most delicious of aromas wafted towards him. It was like a mix of lilacs and cinnamon. The scent instantly sent him into a state of raging lust, as his body hardened, giving him an unwanted boner. His wolf growled to be let out as it clawed at him to claim the source of the enticing smell, threatening to send him to his knees.“She's ours! She's our mate. We must claim and mate her!” the wolf demanded. “We cannot let her get away!”
“Get out!” He yelled again, the scent of fear mixed with that delicious scent of hers. He could scent something else, gasoline. That wreak was going to blast.
“I… I said I am sorry,” she stammered fearfully.
He sighed, then grabbed the car door and wrenched it open. Not bothering to open the seatbelt he snapped it from the top, breaking it. Then he grabbed her wrist and dragged her out of the car.
“Hey! Leave me! What the hell are you doing ?” The girl yelled and struggled to free her hand.
“Just shut up and come with me. That car is going to blast!” He shouted.
Terror reflected in her lovely hazel eyes, and she scrambled away from the weak. He swooped her in his arms and kneeled on the road.
The heat and debris flew up into the air as he shielded her body with his. Lisa's heart sank as the car burst into smithereens. Finally, she turned her head towards her saviour, he was very tall probably six-five give or take an inch, and very muscular. His shoulders and arms looked huge and strained the sleeves of his shirt. Silky back hair whipped about his arresting, chiselled face. The emerald green eyes seemed to stare directly into her soul and unearthed all of her secret dreams and desires.“Are you OK?” He yelled. No answer, she was frozen. He yelled again.“Yeah. But my car's not.” She said, sadly, this day couldn't have been worse.
“What the hell were you thinking! Are you drunk? Are even old enough to drive?” He asked.
“I am 18! And I said I am sorry, It's not like I banged into your car intentionally!”
Ruben's feral half was prowling agitated, as it urged his human half to claim his mate. He had done a monkey jump inside when she mentioned that she was 18. Now he wouldn't need to whip himself for lusting after an underage girl. She was beautiful, even if he ignored his lust laden feral half. She was exquisite. Her hair was magma-red, and it crashed over her shoulders.
She was twine-thin but with a sculpted body. A pair of arched eyebrows looked down on sweeping eyelashes. Her delicate ears framed a button nose. Her enticing, jewel-like eyes gazed at him over her puffy, heart-shaped lips.If she was his mate was debatable, but he was going to make her pay for damaging his car.
“You were driving in the wrong lane, you dashed into my favourite car which now sports that ugly scratch, apology won't help. You need to pay for the damage.” He said firmly.
She looked frantically at the scratched Lamborghini and Jacob's car up in flames. She was screwed.
“I… I can't pay you. I don't have that kind of money.” She mumbled, almost in tears.
“Listen, girl, you ran into my car and I need it repaired. If you can't afford the registration and insurance, you shouldn't be fucking driving!”
She covered her face and broke down into sobs, “I am sorry, please… I am already messed up. Jacob is going to kill me. I had the worst day of my life….on my birthday.” She said between sobs.
Ruben looked bewildered at the crying girl. He couldn't stand it. His wolf fought with him, for making their mare cry. He stood up pulling her up and leaned against his car.
“Who is Jacob?”
“My….my mom's boyfriend, it was his car. I borrowed it for some time and….and.” a fresh spate of tears falls from her eyes and Ruben sighed. He had half mind to leave her to her misery and drive away, but his feral half urged him to comfort her. There was a strange pain in his heart, which increased with every sob.
“Alright! I won't ask you to pay for the damage, but what are you going to do about that wreak?” He pointed at the burning car.
“I don't know….but thank you so much. I guess I should leave now. I am sorry again.” She wiped off her tears and turned to walk away.
“Wait! Are you planning to walk back at night on a deserted road?” He asked aghast.
“Do I have a choice?” She mumbled.
There was no way that he was going to let this woman slip by him.
“Get in the car,” he ordered.
She looked at him fearfully again.
“It's alright, you have suffered enough because of me.....”
“I didn't ask for your opinion, just get in the car.” He repeated.
She made no effort to move, exasperated, he grabbed her wrist and pulled her towards his car.She slapped his face and squirmed to get free.“You fucking dare to slap me? I saved your life, and you fucking HIT me?”
She tried again, this time he grabbed both her wrist when she tried to hit him again. She was slightly built, small frame and a foot shorter than him. How she thought she'd be able to fight him, he had no idea. He could snap her in half within seconds!“Cut it out. You won't win. Quit it.” He turned her and pinned her to the car. She was not crying, not swearing, not yelling.
“Big man, are you? You going to beat up a little girl?”
“No, I'm not. I'm just stopping you from hitting me.”
She struggled a little. His foot between hers and pressed her to the car. Her butt was level with the tops of his thighs. She struggled some more and he held her firmly.
“Stop it. If you don't try to hit me, I'll let you go. OK?”
A pause, then she agreed. When he released his grip, she turned slowly as if in compliance, then kicked his shin and ran down the road. He sighed! Caught up with her in a few strides, grabbed her by the waist and tackled her onto the road.Jessica struggled with all her might against the massive man. She knew it was futile, but she was not going to let him get his way.
“Just stop! I am just trying to help you !” He said, pinning her hands on the hard concrete.
"No! Just let me go! I won't let you rape me!" She screamed.
He rolled his eyes," excuse me! I am trying to help you, and for the record, I like my women ready and willing not screaming like a banshee!"
She stopped yelling but looked at him distrustfully.
"You would hurt me?" She whispered, fearfully.
"No, trust me. I can help you pay for that car if you agree to do as I say,” he replied gently.
“I don't need your help! Let me go.” She shouted.
To her surprise, he released her wrists and got off her, sitting on the road. She sat up, rubbing her wrists. They were going to be bruised later on.
“What do you want?” She had no intention to agree with him. But she had realized that she wouldn't win, so she had to be smart and make an escape when his guard was down.
“Go on a date with me.” He said in a placid tone.
“A date?” Lisa stared at the man, he was drop-dead gorgeous. He looked around 21-23 years old college guy, and he was dressed in an expensive white dress shirt, probably part of a tuxedo. Judging by his Lamborghini, she could guess he was a rich brat who was used to getting his way.Why would he date her unless he had an ulterior motive? But then if he could help her wiggle out of this mess, then why not? He nodded,” yeah, just a date.” “How Chivalrous,” she said dryly. “Why do you want to help me out, and take me on a date? You don't even know me.” She asked, folding her arms and sitting cross-legged on the dark road. “I would feel better if I drop you home rather than let you walk alone in the dark. I am feeling generous today, so I am helping you and since it's your birthday I am taking you on a date.” He explained. He couldn't tell her the real reason, of course. His wolf was pushing him to protect her. “Is this something you norm
“Wow! Praise my luck,” Lisa mouthed, as she counted the banknotes. That eccentric man had given her twenty thousand dollars in cash! 'Who carries this much money around?' She thought. It was enough to pay Jacob and run away from this hellhole. She hid half the amount in her jacket and moved towards her trailer, hoping to slip in undetected. Always Evangelical, Miss Donald watched her as she opened her trailer door. Her glasses moved up her narrow nose as she surveyed Lisa. Her haggard appearance and the time screamed out “Returning from a sinful night “. “She is so cursing me to eternal damnation,” Lisa thought. Miss Donald shot her one last acid glance before the doors closed again. “I have been judged,” Lisa thought ruefully. She crept into her door and rapped her knuckles on the metal twice. Leaning against the wall to hold up, she heard the tell-tale footfalls approach. The door swung open to reveal a visibly worried Mary.
“I took language class in school, I like old dead languages.” She said, making him chuckle. “What else do you like?” He couldn't help being curious about his mate. He had asked her on a date to pacify his wolf, who getting antsy. He was still not sure if he would claim her just yet. “Track sport, books.....and….,” she was going to say to Steve but then stopped. She had been so busy thinking about the mysterious Ruben that she had forgotten all about Steve's betrayal. He had not called her, even though it was her birthday. She sighed and brushed away that thought. Tonight she wouldn't think about this though, tonight she was going to enjoy and let loose. She eyed Ruben slyly, maybe get rid of her V card as well. “Did Jacob trouble you?” Ruben asked suddenly, breaking her reverie. “No! The money was enough to shut him up, thank you for saving my life and my hide.” “I told you helping others is my thing,” he chuckled. She took a dee
The first thing that Lisa noticed was that Ruben's eyes turned a strange grey-green as he grabbed her hand. It was back to its normal self within a flash. She blinked, this was the second instance she noticed something strange with his eyes. Maybe it was a reflection of the neon lights? Maybe he had some medical condition which she was unaware of? She dismissed the thought.The second thing she noticed was that an electric current seemed to pass from him into her, where he was holding her wrist. The spark shot up her spine and flowed out to her nipples and down to her very core. She'd never felt anything like it and stood transfixed, staring into his eyes. He moved first and, taking her by the hand, led her to the dance floor. She felt as if she were in a daze, watching through a fog as he effortlessly moved through the crowd to the middle of the floor. There he turned to face her and, with his hands at her waist, pulled her close to his body. She felt drawn to his heat as sh
"Mine!" growled his wolf. "Mate. Now!'" His wolf wanted to grab her and plunge into her body right away. "She's human," he reminded his wolf, "and they're awfully frail." So, he struggled to control his inner beast. Besides, he didn't want her to be afraid of him. He tried to take shallow breaths to calm his raging need. He inhaled her intoxicating smell, which went straight to his groin. Unbelievably, his cock got bigger and harder than it had ever been before. Lisa was pinned against the door while Ruben took her lips again in a mind-numbing kiss and felt his hand at the back of her dress, caressing her through the fabric. Before she realized his intent, he pulled her zipper down and peeled the dress down her breasts. Lisa stilled, coming to her senses. She pulled her head back, breaking the kiss, and was about to tell him to stop when he held one breast in his hand and closed his lips around the bud. Her intended protest died before she could find her voice. The feeling o
Ruben De Montrose just lay there watching her sleep. He had hoped that his wolf would be satisfied now. She had fallen asleep due to the exertion and the bite. She would be knocked out for hours. He couldn't leave her now. His wolf won't allow it. He wasn't vain, but he knew he was in excellent shape. He just hoped she liked what she saw. He certainly liked what he had laying beside him. She was a human and knew nothing about him. So, he would have to be patient and teach her his ways, and a few other things he would enjoy teaching her. The thought made his loins tighten up again.***************The entire house was at a standstill, the present emotional state of the pack leader reverberated in the compound, even his betas did everything possible to keep their distance. The alpha was not to be disturbed. This was more of an emergency than whatever else anyone had to bring up.No one knew the identity of the female the Alpha had brought with him, he had ta
Lisa breathed with relief as soon Ruben left the room. She just wanted to get out of that place and forget about everything, she cursed the day she met Ruben. Her heart tugged a little at the thought of leaving him. But she couldn't stay, he was mysterious and who knows, even dangerous. Determined, she caught her sandals in her hands and looked for her purse. She found it on another chair and noticed that she had several missed calls on her phone from her mom.She left a brief message for her mom, telling her she was fine and stayed back at a friend's place to study. She was on the way home and then decided to call a cab, but she had no idea where she was. Thankfully, she was smart and knew how to use technology. She searched Google Maps to find her current location. She was surprised to see that the house was on the edge of a forest in the middle of nowhere. However, she managed to call a cab company and asked him to arrive at the nearest place she could recognize near the r
“Why is this damm place so fucking huge! “ Ruben cribbed, as he ran down towards the entrance. How Lisa managed to get out of the estate without getting lost was incredible. “Blame your grandfather for that, pup! I had told him the design of this house was stupid. But did he listen? No! Kids these days.” Elizabeth stamped her cane and shook her head. Elizabeth was perhaps the oldest werewolf in North America. Maybe the oldest in the world as well. She was rumoured to be 1500 years old. When different dynasties ruled Europe, she was there. When the Empires fell, she was there. She had lived through the civil wars, the world wars and every major historical event. Ruben and Andrea rolled their eyes. “What are you doing here, Elizabeth? You should be in your room, resting,” Andrea said gently. “How can I rest in this commotion ?” She turned her attention to Ruben, “Did you meet someone yet? Ruling alphas aren't supposed to be single.” She said d
