Unwanted by your mate: a werewolf's worst nightmare
Ivy May Rose was brought up in a high class family, where her life motto was to be seen and not heard. While things were bad enough in her home, things took a turn for the worse. One day, while walking home from a friend's house, she was attacked and raped, and soon found herself pregnant with a son. With her family being disgusted by the sight of her and fearing how they would be looked upon by others, they kicked Ivy out, faking her own death, and leaving her with nowhere to go.
By the age of fourteen, Ivy found a job, fighting other girls in an underground ring, watched by old drunk men, while also obtaining a side job of pleasuring men without pleasuring herself. At seventeen, Ivy has determined that her world won't get better, but she does everything she can to give her son the best life she can.
Zero Keller is the soon-to-be Alpha of the Midnight Dawn Pack. All he has wanted was a mate to call his own, and it doesn't help that his younger brother has already been mated to his childhood friend. Zero knows he needs a mate in order to become the best Alpha he can, and he worries he may never find her.
When Zero's school for training high class werewolves is overrun by rogues, he is forced to go to a new school, and discovers Ivy is his mate. With Ivy being convinced Zero is nothing more than a rich bastard, she acts cold toward him. With Zero begging to be let into Ivy's life, he discovers he may be nothing but unwanted to her, a werewolf's worst nightmare.
