It's amazing to be a dominant wolf . . . if you're male. When you're a nineteen year-old girl who can beat the crap out of every wolf in your pack, suddenly it's not so great. Love isn't everything, I know; but even the most powerful she-wolf submits to her mate. If you can't be dominated, you can't be mated. And an unmated wolf has no place in the pack. My one hope is the clan gathering in the Blackwood Fortress. Every wolf in the continent attends, and a few seriously sexy wolves catch my eye. I'm bound to find at least one who can match me, right? Then there's my other problem: My alpha is a grade-A jerk. After treating me like a genetic freak my whole life, he suddenly decides to stake a claim. But I can't refuse the challenge, and my wolf won't back down. Either I submit to the alpha and become mated to his skeezy pelt, or I win the challenge and my freedom . . . by taking his place as alpha. Only no one has ever heard of a female alpha, and if I become one, I'll never find a mate. Contains mature themes.Show more
No one has ever heard of a female alpha . . . until me. Now I'm on a journey to see some Oracle I didn't know existed, accompanied by the four most eligible males in the clan-go figure, they're the other clan alphas. The trip gives me an opportunity to learn more about the strangers who wish to claim me as their mate: brooding Rowan, serene Taika, jovial Stig, and flirtatious Mateo all appeal to me, and my wolf, in different ways. And right now they're all seriously pissing me off. As they each try and fail to dominate me, the only person who remains on my side is my best friend and former lover, Emory.But as the trip wears on, I begin to suspect even Emory's keeping secrets. Plus, lest I forget, there are still the blood-drinking monsters that dog our steps and leave a few nasty surprises along our journey. I can only hope that the Oracle has a solution that works for all of us. Otherwise, all five clan alphas are as good as wraith-meat. Contains mature themes.Show more
