"I, Alpha Vincent, reject you, Leanna. I sever all ties with your body, mind, soul, and wolf. We will no longer be connected. You are the lowest. Your presence will be less than an Omega's. You will be nothing to me. You will no longer know the life you had."
Then he dragged her down the stairs from the library, her screams and cries unrelenting.
"Please, Vince. Please. I need you, don't do this to me. To us."
He ignored her pleas, her wolf shattering inside her, becoming so small, it was as if she were no longer there.
When Leanna finds her mate, she isn't prepared. The Alpha is a strong man who requires a strong Luna. But they make it work. Until the rogues begin attacking, tearing the pack apart, the Alpha slowly appearing to lose it all.
Until one morning he decides enough is enough; Leanna is too weak to be a proper Luna and rejects her. Stripped of her title and dignity, she's locked away and tortured for months until she finally escapes during the Alpha's ceremony where she learns his new Luna is pregnant.
Alone and weakened, she runs across an eccentric vampire who saves her from hunters and brings her to the Hope Lunar, a pack believed to have disappeared decades ago.
To escape the life she's left and evade anyone searching for her, Leanna changes her name to Rowena Winter and erases her past.
Her trust in humanity is broken but a war has followed her to their doorstep.
She'll have to learn to trust if she's going to survive.
