The Deerborn Chronicles: Borderline (BOOK 0...
[PREQUEL TO THE DEERBORN SERIES]
Not many things in life surprise Richard Deerborn III, certainly not the fact that he is a pureblood shapeshifter and definitely not the fact that he is next to inherit the rights to be the clan leader of Bon Resi. He knew all of this information from the time he was a little boy, he knew what he was destined for. Which, unfortunately, seemed to get him into a lot of trouble. Being entitled to an entire secret civilization of supernatural beings tends to do that to a person.
Richard is on a war path with any shifter who happens to look at him wrong, and the whole shifter community of Bon Resi knows that. Unfortunately the two new kids, Lillian and Jess Livingston, do not. Richard knows right away who and what Jess Livingston is, and Jess is well aware of who Richard is. More importantly, Jess sees the way Richard looks at his sister, Lillian. Fights erupt, a power struggle between two conflicting elements, and a plea to stop Richard from falling in love with Lillian takes place.
Determined to make a man out of his son and to break him free from the trouble he is getting himself into, Richard Deerborn Jr. forces his son to go to University to become more than just a clan leader. Richard III leaves behind Lillian Livingston, but not without a fight or two in the process.
In University, Richard becomes a thoughtful, put-together and aspiring young man with a bright future in front of him. He meets his best friend, Graeme Wright, and the two are ready to take on the world together. But the sudden death of Richard Deerborn Jr. sends Richard III back to Bon Resi once more to take on his new role as leader.
Life hasn't changed in Bon Resi, and neither has Lillian Livingston and her annoying brother Jess. Richard is determined to make changes, even if that means taking on more power than he can handle.
