She still couldn't understand how it was possible to go to bed early one night and wake up the next morning to learn her brother got picked up by a tornado, challenged a Royal, demoted to an Omega, DIED, only to be revived by his TWO mates, given a blood transfusion in the middle of the forest, was MARKED before he was eighteen by both elemental Alpha's, SURVIVED IT, and was currently recovering in the Pack hospital, IN THE SPACE OF TWENTY FOUR HOURS!
Isabella's father was beside himself, her mother Maria wasn't much better, and Raeann rushed over to Mikhail's room as soon as she was given the news.

Isabella was dirty, hungry, tired, and in a bad mood.Thejourney to Howling warriors had been arduous. Any single wolf, like herself, was driven mad by the constant rushing off to bushes, tandem toilet stops, feigned tiredness, and the many other excuses the newly mated couples used to slip away and have sex.Adrian, an older married wolf, took to running a lewd commentary every time someonewould break off, more than once uttering words that Isabella didn't care to repeat.The convoy finallyreached the pack borders, late in the evening, hours after they were due, only to be questioned and then held up,
Alpha Stalker had requested that Isabella handle the hand over personally; Camille found her in the showers this morning, one half razored leg perched precariously on the soapbox, shampoo just applied to her thick fiery tresses and loofah furiously scrubbing yesterdays travel muck from her body.The pack Beta delivered the news tersely, beforeturning on her heel and leaving as quickly as she had appeared; Isabella had no idea why Camille had taken such a disliking to her. They didn't even know each other, but once again the older woman had slipped away before she had a chance to confront her about it.Not that it would resolve anything, in Isabella's past experiences, confronting a would-be bully would usua
It couldn't be...The young man sitting on the bench seat was so achingly familiar, his unruly black hair tousled every which way, that body...she was way too familiar with the carnal pleasures that body could provide, it was the man who visited her in herdreams! The closer Isabella got, the stronger the pull became and Mazlyn fought to break free..'MATE MINE!'Butthat wasn't what hit her the most, that wasn't what bought the pack trainer to her knees...
Three weeks had passed...Isabella looked so tiny, hooked up to themonitors, her huge personality muted...Shadow never left her side. He waswearing borrowed clothes from someone who stopped by, but the faces were all a blur at this point. Dragging his hands along his stubble, Shadow looked on with red-rimmed eyes at his helpless mate, praying she would just wake up.Once the news spread of the Romano's resurrection from the dead, old pack members that remembered when the family were the pack Beta's started coming by to pay their respects, and the young Alpha was amazed at how many lives little Izzy Romano ha
Isabella watched as the Alphas face crumbled, then he quickly schooled his features and stepped back a bit, his voice sending shivers down her spine as he asked, "How much do you remember?"She furrowed her brow before replying, trying her best to remember any detail, but she kept drawing a blank."Did I hit my head on the monkey bars Alpha Tarakona? It wasn't Shadows fault, I swear, he would never hurt me!"Shadow didn't know what to do. Clearly, the hit to the head had done more damage than anyone thought.Reaching into the fa
AlphaPayne watched in silence as his old Beta threw the second snow globe at the wall, making a mental note to purchase another one so his poor mate wouldn't learn the fate of her little homeytouches in his office."Would it do any good to tell you to calm the fuck down, Santos?" He asked, reaching into his desk and retrieving a small rectangle wooden box.Flicking the lid open, he carefully selected a cigar from the contents inside, appreciating the smell his favorite brand gave off.Payne was quite partial to the Corona Maduro, the rich flavors of cocoa and espresso married together nicely on his tongue, an
Sweat trickled down the back of his neck, raven black hair wet with sweat, and quads screaming as he inched slowly up the hill.It had taken a couple of days but, the track was finally clear and Shadow could begin bringing the materials up for his project.He had to keep busy, or the Bella situation would drive the Alpha crazy and this was something he could do by himself and think about her at the same time.Isabella Romano.His childhood best friend, but in reality, she had been so much more than that.

Isabella POVHe was back again. Every evening, the same as always, Shadow would pop his head in the door, treating Isabella to that cheeky grin and presenting her with the same flowers, wildflowers picked from their hideaway.It was still strange to see him all grown up, it seemed like only yesterday that she was telling on her latest bully, making Shadow go over and tell them off, but in reality, that was years ago.And damn, did he Latest chapter
