Way of the Wolf, Bk 3: Oria
(Can be read as stand alone)
"He watched her the way I watched him, full of a longing for the one we could never have."
Oria was used to being nothing but a shadow on the wall to most wolves, and she was good at it. For most of her life, she's been taught to keep her head down, stay quiet and draw minimal attention to herself.
Her past has left a dark cloud over her, one she's been unable to get away from despite her best friend's attempt to help. With Cathwulf now an Alpha Female, it's shone somewhat of a spotlight on Oria, one that seems to have caught the attention of the new Beta, despite him having his eyes and heart held by Cathwulf...his best friend's mate.
Oria knows she can be more than she's settled for, but fear keeps her locked in place. Yet her wolf has become uncontent with being bottom of the pack and pushes her to fight her way up the ranks. Yet how can you fight things that have been drilled into you since birth?
Beta Quillan has a dark past of his own, one that he fights with every second of every day, which draws Oria's own broken wolf towards him.
A healer and a Beta, both more alike than they think
