Arianna is the daughter of Devin and Samantha Striker. Her parents had a rough mating, and her father cheated on her mother for a good part of that mating. Though things worked out for them, and they are now happily married, it distorted Arianna's view of mates, so much so that she's determined not to have a mate, doesn't want one, doesn't dream of one. Ashtyn is in line to be the Beta of his pack, Arianna's uncles pack to be precise. He's lived a care free playboy life ever since he realized girls weren't yucky anymore. He's got every female he encounters eating out of the palm of his hand, and he always takes full advantage of that, but lately he's been restless. No longer completely satisfied with the constant change of bed partners, he's decided he might want something more, that elusive mate that's out there waiting for him. So what happens when the stubborn defiant Arianna meets the aspiring reformed play boy Ashtyn? A chase will ensue, to what extent will Ashtyn go to win his mate over, and how long will Arianna be able to resist her mate?
