The story of a bastard prince turned Alpha King and his fake mate. To the world, it’s a fairytale of a prince and a maid. In reality, it’s a sham. Killian is known as the bastard prince, a murderer believed to have killed his brother for the throne. Cold and merciless, Killian firmly believes only fools love but on a whim, he announces a random maid as his mate to avoid a political marriage. Then his beliefs begin to change. Carrot is fleeing her abusive mate who, not only rejected her, but also tried to kill her and then sold her off to an old, perverted Alpha. She runs to the capital and renames herself Amethyst. Working as a palace maid, she is scrubbing the ground one day when the Alpha Prince takes one look at her and declares her his mate. A lie. In public, Killian dotes on Amethyst but in private, he ignores her existence. He crowns her as his queen and they continue their fake relationship until their lies unravel as the truth. They are true mates. Can Amethyst open her heart to a man who disregarded her from the start? They may be true mates but with a woman deadset on having Killian, a disgraced dowager queen determined to avenge her son and the awakening of Amethyst’s hybrid powers, how long can their relationship last?View More
“Killian, the baby is here!” I screamed, startling my mate. “What?” His eyes widened and his fingers paused buttoning his shirt. “Where is she?” It was a funny question but I did not have time to laugh so I swallowed thickly and tried to waddle to the delivery room next door. “Hey, where are you going!?” He ended up carrying me there. I had been warned beforehand, taught breathing techniques and everything the midwives considered necessary for me to know before my labour began but the pain was out of this world. Everything from my head to my toe hurt. My head felt like it was about to split in half while my toes seemed to be getting shaved off but my lower belly – I could not describe the pain. “You are doing good,” the midwife in charge said. “Take a deep breath as we practised –“ She was saying but my ears rang. “Take a – take a deep what? It feels like I am being split open!” I exclaimed, tears dripping into my ears as I gasped. The excruciating pain continued for hours. It was
A few days ago, Hawke was found dead in his cell after weeks of him trying to eat himself as he turned rogue. In the early hours of this morning, Luna Grace ended her life by repeatedly stabbing her throat with a fork until she bled out. That was after she spent the past week screaming and crying out her mate’s name as if stuck in a nightmare.Although Luna Grace used to be an important figure in my life, I did not care about her passing. I touched my stomach, thinking of the child that could have been. My heart tightened and I closed my eyes, shaking my head.The death of a pregnant woman felt like a bad omen to me but I had to remind myself that I had no hand in her death.“What are you doing?” I sighed as my mate interrupted me for the hundredth time that day as I tried to work.“What does it look like I am doing, Killian?” I asked with an eye roll.“It looks like you are working,” he said, accusation ringing in his tone and I sighed again.“Yes, I am working. Is there a problem wi
*KILLIAN*Despite the mountain of work awaiting me, I squeezed out time to see Hawke. For a long time, I pondered how to clip his wings, how to bring him down from his high horse and see him suffer. Having him where I wanted him made my steps light and my body weightless.His gaze burned into me when I stopped in front of his dark cell and I felt a sort of dark glee warm me from the inside. I wanted him to suffer more than he was suffering for as long as possible. I thought I hated my father, I thought I hated Scarlett Hawke but this man taught me what hatred meant.“Have you come to gloat?” He croaked out and I shrugged.“Something like that,” I responded, a smile creeping up my lips.This man had been the bane of my existence for a while but now he was at my mercy. The power he flaunted in my face had crumbled. Dark Moon, his pride and joy, was under my feet. His daughter who he held as a jewel died a shameful death and the woman he took in as his mistress would meet the same fate.
“Is there any reason for that?” Like me, my mate was suspicious of the stranger and his abrupt request to join a wolf pack.“I would like to be the official mage of the Alpha pack. Weren’t you looking for a mage in the first place?” Samuel said with a blank expression that still came off as creepy somehow.“Why do you want to be the official mage of a wolf pack? Your kind has long since cut off all contact with wolves.” Killian asked but Samuel only shrugged.“Would you believe me if I said I am doing this to make history?” His gaze flicked to me and Killian huffed. “There is no need to be irritable. I am old enough to father her.”“No, I don’t believe you. Tell me what you want or leave,” Killian growled and the other man laughed.“I am doing this for your benefit, you know?” He said, his eerie cold voice becoming quieter and thus creepier. “Long, long ago, when I was a young boy, I met this woman. She was as bright as the sun and well – I will spare you the details but she was a wo
“Don’t move.” A hand pressed me back down as I lurched up with a gasp. I tried to ask why but my throat did not work and my lips could not move.Darkness consumed me after that. Voices filtered into my ears at various intervals but the darkness did not recede.“Don’t move, dammit!” The same voice exclaimed as I escaped the darkness after a long time.“Why?” This time, my throat worked but my voice was hoarse and everything hurt.“Because you almost died, dimwit.” I turned my head to look at the man cursing at me. Cedric sat beside my bed with Eliza, his eyes red at the corners and his expression fierce. “Stay still and don’t cause any trouble.”“Killian,” I muttered, ignoring his words and trying to move. This time, he did not try to stop me. He let me find out on my own that it was excruciatingly painful to move. I hissed in pain as sharp stabs and tiny little pinpricks drove into my back as I tried to move.“Your mate is – stable,” Eliza spoke as I flopped back into bed. “Once he wa
“This can end now,” Hawke beta whispered to me like the devil’s advocate. My mate was in terrible shape and they knew I would do anything – anything to help out but I was not a fool. If I surrendered on behalf of my mate, all of this would be over – over for us. “What would it be, Amethyst?”He was lying. I knew he was lying. The soft voice whispering to me was false – wrong. Despair almost had me nodding, agreeing with his terms so they would let my mate go but he was the Alpha King, not I. Surrendering his seat was as good as declaring him dead, betraying him. So even though he had several bruises decorating his face, even though blood oozed from a deep wound in his chest, even though he had to fight over twenty wolves in this condition, I could not tap out on his behalf.As I watched with my eyes wide, unwilling to miss even the tiniest of his movement, he stomped hard on a wolf’s shin, breaking its ankle. They fought in their human forms but it was not any less deadly than fightin
I waited. I did. I waited because I knew I would be in his way. There was little I could do to aid my mate this time so it was best to stay out of the way. So I waited. The first day came and went, as did the second, then the third until a week went by. At random intervals during the day and at night, I felt sharp stabs of pain and as time went by, I learnt to ignore them. Sometimes I cried myself to sleep and other times, I woke up with my pillow soaked with tears but I waited. It would be over soon. I hoped and prayed. He was alive – I could feel it so it would be over soon and we would be victorious. We had to be.“Are you starving yourself again today?” Cedric came in with lunch – no it seemed to be dinner considering the stars in the skies. “Do you want to die before your mate?” I heard a low cuss and my eyes turned to the door. The person cussing left in a hurry but not before I got a glimpse of Soleil’s figure.When I first arrive at the coven, the women were ecstatic to have
*KILLIAN*“Protect her,” I told my beta who nodded. I would trust Orion with my life but I could not trust anyone with my mate so no matter how much security I set up as I left the palace, I still left with raging unease. Styx muttered under his breath and paced about as we left our mate behind. It was difficult but it was necessary and for now, it didn’t seem like Hawke had any interest in her.“Your Majesty, there is a problem.” We had barely left the palace when we encountered the first problem and from then until we reached where the other warriors were camped, we encountered difficulties upon difficulties.There were rogues everywhere, protesters and at one point, we encountered witches. I assumed we encountered so many problems on the way because Hawke did not want me to join the battle, fearing the havoc I would wreck in a short time, that was until I got the letter.I was greeting the warriors as comrades when the letter from Lady Cordelia came. Despite how much sincerity she
