Coy didn't know the difference between herself and her pack members. As far as she was concerned they were the same, they were family. She had always been a part of the pack for as long as she could remembered. There were times when she felt different but those moments were few and quick to pass. Then along came the strange wolf that was even bigger than she was. He smelled of the forest, humans and wolves. He moved in a way that intrigued her even though all the wolves in her pack moved just as beautifully. She was so drawn to him that she refused to allow the pack to attack him. But how could she get the pack to accept him when he was clearly so different from them? How could she get him to accept her pack when he didn't seem to want to even be there? Hours, days, weeks. Bentley didn't like the idea of a wolf born mate, a wolf that couldn't shift. He was a shifter. He wanted a shifter mate, not that he ever thought about it until now. Still, he was taught the Creator didn't make mistakes. So, he had to step up and get to know this wolf. He stayed, stealing the moments and glances he could. When he found out the wolf couldn't be his mate he still couldn't make himself drive away. He didn't know what the attachment between them was but it was undeniably an connection. He needed to find the reason for the bond.
