So you've heard the story of the cowardly lion, right? A kindhearted beast who only wished for courage. But I bet you've not heard the story of the cowardly Alpha. Of course not. How can an Alpha be a coward? Well let me tell you... Emma Mahney hasn't had it easy. An understatement if ever there was one, and it's fallen on her to support her mother and sister. But how can she focus on money, school and her family, when the strange man who's been haunting her nightmares and ruining her life for years comes back for her. As the Alpha, As the Enemy, As her Mate.
