Marked and He's Not My Mate
When someone speaks of Mates or Soul-Mates, you probably think of the human version of these two words. Unfortunately, That just isn't the care for Ashton Bracks.
This seventeen year old girl is dealing with a past event that is probably going to turn her life upside down once more. It's been ten years since that fateful day in the forest behind her home.
If you were sitting in her place living with the fear of being rejected by your mate, how would you life you life? What would you do if you've lived for ten years with a mark that isn't from your mate? How would you handle that first meeting? Would you run? Can he help remove the mark or is his only choice to reject and replace you?
The answers to these questions have haunted Ashton since her first change. Knowing what finding her mate would mean, she begins avoiding all physical contact and only keeps eye contact with what's left of her family and the Alpha. This mark took so much from her and she know she'll never get back the life she should have led.
She has two questions that she wants answered more than anything, but will she ever get the answers? Would she live her life blaming herself for this event? The questions float around in her mind: What did this man accomplish by marking her at such a young age? Did he have some unknown reason to keep her from her mate?
She's never seen his eyes from a direct view, refusing to look in his eyes, but Jasper Wills is the next to be Alpha of the Black Mountain Pack and he can't take his place as Alpha until his mate is by his side...Ashton, his best friend's sister.
Will she accept him or deny him? Will she ever be able to allow him to claim her or will she run away?
So many questions lay unanswered at her feet and what she doesn't know is that she's soon going to have all these answers...and more. How will she handle the truth?
