Phoenix is a Beta. He has a rough past and a beat up heart. He has never wanted a mate. Lina is a small, fragile girl. Shes a wolf. But from the looks of it. You wouldn't be able to tell. She is abused too. She just wants a better life and mate. He just wants to be free and fine. He has riches while she's in rags. To bad they're mates. Fates played them like a bitch.
