Alexander Petridis: I still have not found my mate in the seven years since my first shift. I nearly gave up, but then I left to build alliances and hopefully find her. Little did I know she'd been under my nose all along. When I see her, though, I'm stunned, not just because she's innocent little Delilah Fayte but because, in my absence, she made a choice I don't know if I can live with. Delilah Fayte: People have always thought I'm this naïve innocent girl. And okay, maybe I am innocent and all that. After my first shift, I didn't actively seek my mate. I had other plans. And sure, my family was against it at first, but mate or not, I wanted to help André and Darren. I didn't think in doing so, I'd alienate my mate and long-time crush, Alexander Petridis. This is the fourth of the Incubi Pack series. You do not need to have read the previous books to enjoy this book, but it is encouraged.

I arched a skeptical brow at the witch. I am unfamiliar with everyone in Katrina’s coven, but I recognized this one. And there were subtle similarities between the witch standing next to Darren and Lia. Mostly, it was the nose, which proves that you can deny who your kin is, but genetics will always give it away. And while the similarities were almost insignificant, they were there, and it turned my stomach to even look at her. “What does that mean?” Delilah asked. At least one of us isn’t considering exit strategies and holding back vile. I know it’s not Augusta’s fault her family is batshit crazy. It’s not her fault she’s related to them. You can’t pick your family, or at least you can’t pick who you share DNA with, would be a better phrase. However, pardon me, I’ve had enough bad experiences with her family never to want to set eyes on another member for the rest of my life. “I may not be quite as powerful as my Bisnonna, but I am still a powerful witch of the Sabbadin line.
Dear Readers, For those of you who have been reading my books for a while, you should know me. For those who are new to my books, you'll see that I like to keep you informed. I want to be transparent and set appropriate expectations. I know what it's like to be a reader hooked on a story and getting frustrated when I don't know the schedule for new chapters and more so when it goes off schedule. So, this is me being transparent and ensuring I'm setting expectations for you. I know how much you love Alexander and Delilah's story and are eager to see how they get to that Happily Ever After that all my books get. I've been loving writing their story and I can't wait to see how they get to where I know they end up. So it does pain me to say this; however, due to my current workload, Beta's Innocent Mate is on a TEMPORARY Hiatus. My day job is coming to the end of our fiscal year, so I need to do a lot of work quickly. This is eating up my writing time and frying my brain. I am hoping th
Why did I have to remind him about the shower? His fingers had been doing their magic, and I was minutes away from orgasm. Maybe less if he kept making that come-hither motion. Instead of relishing his touching me and letting me touch him, I opened my mouth, and he stopped. Stupid Delilah! ‘A little bit, yes. However, there are silver linings. For example, Alexander is naked.’ Helia offered her commentary. I moaned softly as I found another silver lining. The tip of his cock had rubbed against my vagina. I tried to wiggle in his arms to angle myself closer. I wanted him inside of me. I wanted him badly. Sadly his grip on my ass as we stepped into the shower, was too tight for me to do more than torture us both by just rubbing against his tip. I know it was torture for him because he growled. Not like a menacing growl but one of those ‘goddess damn it’ growls through clenched teeth. It was so sexy that I may have growled back in frustration. I’m a novice when it comes to lovem
Falling asleep last night wasn’t easy. It took me about as long as it did after we made love. It’s still weird to call it that. I’d tried my best to stop the anxiety from taking over when my hand would brush her bump, or she’d roll, and it would brush against me. It didn’t help that I felt the heirs moving around despite how small they were because of my gift. I doubt they had malicious intent. They are fetuses. It’s not like they’ve already developed André’s personality. I had reminded myself, with Lucius echoing the sentiments, that nothing about this should trigger me. I never shared a bed with Lia, even before she was pregnant and certainly never after. Yes, we fucked, but never in a bed. I never could place why, but when it came to screwing her, it was always quick and mostly clothed. I never wanted to get her naked and take my time with Lia. It was about scratching an itch, which wasn’t even that good. And yes, during Lia’s pregnancy, I touched her bump to feel close to what
I had mixed feelings about what our agenda was for today. Part of me was eager to interrogate Liar. She started to crack yesterday before we were pulled away because Domitilla was hospitalized. I don’t know what kind of oath she could have made to no longer obey André’s alpha command. I’ve never witnessed such a thing before. I know something similar happened in Bloodmoon during the fight to reclaim Silverclaw. A sub-Beta turned against Alpha Logan and aided the enemy, a hybrid witch/werewolf rogue. I don’t know if this could be a similar situation, as I believe the male could disobey Alpha Logan because the enemy was his mate, and the mate bond can trump many things. I rather doubt Liar’s ability to ignore André’s command is due to any mate bond. Her mate died when Darren justifiably killed him in battle to protect André and all the innocent wolves of the three Sicilian packs. Then, the only male, so far not related to Liar, involved in this scheme has been Vittore. And while two
I won’t dismiss how formidable my Zio Alec and his mate are. I could understand thinking they could get away with messing with me. I left Incubi to be Beta in Madonie and am not blood to Zio Alec. However, it was a testament to Vittore’s stupidity that he would stalk Delilah. Crista showed the pack what would happen if you hurt her sisters. Vittore opted to ignore that when he went down this path. And for as many reasons as Vittore should have respected and feared my Zio and Crista, he will find out it’s not just the D’Amore-Fayte line he deals with. I don’t care if he knows or doesn’t know that Delilah is MINE. When it comes time for his interrogation, he will learn the true meaning of pain and repentance because I will teach it to him. And if Gianpaolo will condone his son’s actions, he’s on my shit list too. I don’t care that it’s his son, and he feels he should protect him and have loyalty to him. His son broke the law and used his position in the cyber division to do it. As the
I knew it couldn’t be good news when Crista said we needed to talk. No one in the history of conversations has started a talk with a ‘we need to talk,’ which is good news. It’s just not done. The phrase is supposed to be a gentle way of saying the conversation will suck. I didn’t expect the information to be this. I’d been prepared to hear how deeply involved in this conspiracy against Alexander Vittore had gone. I never expected such behavior from Vittore. I suppose that I still need to be less trusting of people. Not everyone with bad intentions will make it obvious. People are good at masking their intentions. I wish I had Stephen’s power. Then, I’d be able to know who had ill intent. ‘You knew Liar was a bad person.’ Helia pointed out. ‘Then why couldn’t I see Vittore for what he is?’ I countered. ‘Because it is always easier to see things from a distance. What matters is that Vittore was stopped, and when he’s cleared for questioning, he will pay for what he’s done.’ Helia ass
I currently have love/hate feelings for my extended family. I suppose I should count my blessings that it wasn’t Mama and my sisters who decided they needed to ‘check in’ on Delilah and me. It didn’t make it any better when my cousin and Zio Alec barged into the guest house with their mates. We’d only been asleep a couple of hours when their not-at-all-subtle voices disturbed us. And when I say we’d been asleep for a couple of hours, I mean Delilah was asleep. As physically and mentally drained as I felt after we made love, yep, still weird to say that, I could drift off to sleep like her. It felt good to have her in my arms. That’s not new. It always felt good when Delilah would cuddle with me. This was different than before, as we were mates and naked. ‘That’s what made it better. Naked Delilah is good.’ Lucius interjected. I rolled my eyes and ignored him. While I fully agree with his sentiment, I am not in the mental space for it. Maybe if we were still at the guest house making
Dear Readers,As you all know, my day job has been crazy hectic recently. It will remain as my company wraps up the current fiscal year and begins the new fiscal year. Due to this, I am limited in my writing time to basically the weekends. This of course drastically limits how many chapters I am able to write/edit to publish. To set expectations, here is my updated publishing schedule for Beta's Innocent Mate. New chapters will be published Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. This may change when my workload lightens, but I cannot say. If there are changes, I will, of course, let you know. Thank you, Bryant
