An intoxicating scent filled my nose, and I soon found myself wanting more. 'Mate! Mate is here!' Sam, my wolf, howled. The scent got closer. "A-Alpha! She is just a runt!" I look up to see a frantic man next to the most attractive man I have ever seen. His eyes widen. One word came out of his mouth as he stared at me. "Mate..." He and his wolf said at the same time. And this time I knew.... I wasn't ever going to be free... Meet Carter, a pack runt who was abused by the pack. She was taught she would never have happiness.. Meet Xander, an Alpha who grew up with a hatred of rouges and a loving family. He had always dreamed of finding his mate.. Will Xander mind that Carter is a rouge, look past that, and love her? Or will he abuse her like she thinks he will?
