My name is Lianna Castello.
This is my story.
In past times, it wasn't uncommon for Werewolf nobility and higher ups to arrange marriages between their children to help strengthen ties between two packs, especially leading up to war.
But after the peace treaty was signed in 1765, packs no longer felt the need to arrange their marriages. It became frowned upon. Packs who wanted to maintain this principle became known as Crescent packs. Their methods deeply frowned upon by others, especially nearing the 21st century when sexism was so disliked.
Many of the other packs had spoken to the ruling family in the royal pack to make changes in the way crescent packs were ran. But with the current ruling king trying to arrange his own sons marriage, nothing could be done.
Lianna is 16, and she's ready to find her mate. Except there's a problem. Lianna belongs to the Crescent Sun pack. And although she's the eldest daughter of the alpha, she isn't the next Luna.
The eldest daughters of any Crescent pack are sold off to the alpha son of another crescent pack. These become their mates. And Lia's assigned mate just so happens to be Alex Larose, alpha of the Crescent Moon pack...
Scary would be an understatement for Alpha Larose.
Think Freddy Krueger on steroids.
Oh, and much hotter.
