After my father's Beta killed him, I ran away and lived my life as a human. It wasn't much, but my life was my own and I liked it that way. Until one night, when I decide to take a shortcut through wolf territory and I'm captured. Expecting to go to the dungeon, the Alpha presents me as a potential mate to the mysterious and reportedly cruel Lycan King, Bowden. He takes me from my home and brings me to his kingdom where I'm expected to live as his mate. A mate he doesn't even want. I didn't sign up for this life. I don't want any of it. Least of all to be some king's dutiful and submissive mate. I'm just waiting, biding my time, until I can run away and join the human world again. ** "You know what…I'm done. I'm leaving Bowden's eyebrows pull up in amusement. "Are you now?” "Yes. Try to stop me.” He stands aside. "I won't stop you. Go. Goddess knows, I could use a little peace and quiet." I start to leave, but before I even reach the door he calls out. "Oswald!” The guard opens the door without any delay. "See the queen to her room and lock her in for the night," Bowden orders. "I thought you said you wouldn't stop me." I spin around and glare at Bowden, furious with him for changing his mind. "I won't…but Oswald made no such promises." The king nods at the guard who simply steps outside and closes the door behind him again. "Don't play games with me, little wild child. I am far more experienced than you'll ever be, and this is a game you'll never win. You are mine, and you are going nowhere.”

This is one of the best novels on this app. This book had me in a chokehold for 2 days. It's hard to add a ghost story to a romance novel and not having it feel like a hackneyed premise but the author here does it well. Definitely worth a read.

I am so loving this romance!!! I have a million things to do but I can’t put it down. I love Kaiya—she is so quirky and independent! I can see why the king is falling in love with her! My favorite kind of romance!

Very nice story. I enjoyed it very much. Not overly long and the characters were real and not unbearable. Thanks again for a truly good story.

Chapter 1
Kaiya The guards herd me into a small room full of young she-wolves. Before I can even ask what’s going on, one of the guards, a burly male, slaps a collar around my neck, threads a chain through a loop on the collar, and binds my hands in iron cuffs. “You’re really in for it, Rogue.” He giggles like a four year old, and leaves. In for what? I wonder. I know Alpha Dorian’s reputation, and he’s not one to gather breeders or keep a harem, but he can’t stand rogues, although he couldn’t do anything to me as long as I didn’t enter his territory. Tonight, of all nights, I just had to go and blunder onto his lands like a stupid, clueless pup. Dammit, I should have been more careful. I knew taking a shortcut through Alpha Dorian’s territory was a bad idea, but I was cold and hungry and I was in a hurry to get home. His warriors ran me down in minutes. I’m fast, but I’m not faster than a fully-grown and well-trained wolf warrior. For a while, I just stand around, trying to manoeuvre my

Chapter 2
Kaiya “You don’t want to see the other girls, Sire?” Griffin asks “Oh Goddess, no,” King Bowden says. “If I have to speak to one more simpering little airhead I’ll run headfirst into the nearest wall.” The king leaves without another word while Griffin starts to undo my chains. “Am I a simpering airhead?” I ask him. The Beta chuckles softly. “No. If you were, the king would not have chosen you.” “That’s good, I suppose?” Griffin smiles at me. “Yes. That’s very good.” “What will happen to the other girls?” He undoes my collar and lets it fall to the ground. I rub my neck where the collar bit into my skin and wait for Griffin to answer. “Nothing. Why?” “They said the king will kill them.” Griffin laughs again. “No. Why would he do something like that?” “That’s exactly what I asked.” The Beta gives me a lopsided grin. “There are a lot of myths and stories surrounding the king’s mate search. Most of it’s bullshit.” Mate? I thought he was looking for a breeder. “Does he usuall

Chapter 3
Bowden I finish up my work and switch my laptop off just before it runs out of battery. I put it aside and stare at the sleeping girl across from me. At some point, she just lay down, curled up, and went straight to sleep. I’ve been searching for a mate for months now and I haven’t been home in close to a hundred days. Not a single one of the she-wolves that the Alphas presented to me pleased Knox. I couldn’t care less one way or the other. If I want sex, I go out and get it, company is easy to come by if I crave it, but I rarely need or want relationships. They just get in the way. I don’t form bonds with my mates anymore. I haven’t in decades. Time after time, I had to watch my mates die, and I’d be left here alone, trying to glue back the pieces of my broken heart. I couldn’t take it anymore, so I started keeping my mates at arm’s length. Finding a mate is really all about making my wolf happy. It took him longer than usual to get restless this time. He really loved our last mat

Chapter 4
Kaiya Last night, King Bowden was almost human, downright nice even, but today he’s back to his surly self and barely pays me any mind. I don’t know if it’s a good or a bad thing, but it does make the rest of the drive to his castle feel like an eternity. As the castle looms into view, the reality of the situation finally hits me like a ton of bricks. The king took me from my home and brought me to his without so much as a by your leave. I don’t even know what he’ll expect of me as his mate. ‘I can always run,’ I remind myself. ‘If it becomes unbearable, I can run and disappear again. It’s not that hard.’ The castle is beautiful and well kept, spanning several acres with towers reaching high up into the sky. Green ivy creeps up the yellowish brick adding character and beauty to the old building. The driver opens the door for me and I practically fall out of the car, stretching my numb and aching limbs. King Bowden didn’t lie when he said we’d be in the car most of the day and I’ve

Chapter 5
Bowden I pace past my comfortable old leather couch for the hundredth time while I wait for Kaiya to make her appearance. I've been restless all day, to the point that I'm afraid I'll hurt someone if I can't find a way to calm my nerves and settle my wolf. “Mate,” Knox growls in my head. “Go get our mate.” Knox is behaving completely out of character. Usually after we've found our mate, he'd settle down, content knowing that she was here if he wanted her. There are no female Lycans, and since we have no need to procreate, our wolves merely crave the emotional bond with a mate. They don't care one way or the other about a physical one anymore. The need for a mate bond is woven into our DNA. A holdover from the ancient times when female Lycans still existed. Before we became immortal and we still needed to breed. Knox shouldn't be acting this way now that we've found our next mate. Neither should I, for that matter. I want her here, in my arms where she belongs. I haven't felt this w

Chapter 6
Bowden “My last mate?” I ask and stare at Kaiya’s slender back. “How do you know?" "I just know," Griffin says. "It's in the way Knox behaves...and you, you are more protective than usual. It feels different this time, doesn't it?" Frowning, I nod at my Beta. Am I that obvious? "So after she dies, this ends? The torture of finding and losing mates, it all finally ends?” “No. It doesn’t end, Bowden. It never ends.” I have more questions, but Kaiya turns around to look at us, her big grey eyes questioning. “Should I go so you can talk in private?” she asks with all the grace of a well-trained Alpha's daughter. “No,” I say. “Please-” I indicate to the food on the table -“go ahead and eat.” “I’ll wait for you,” she says and turns her back on us again. She might have lived as a rogue for way too long, but the Luna training she no doubt received from her mother is starting to kick in. Whether she knows that’s she’s falling back on her instincts are unclear, but it's there all the sam

Chapter 7
Kaiya I stare at the closed door, a feeling of utter despair settling over me. It’s not as if I had been mistreated. The king even treats me decently, despite the rumours about how much he abuses his breeders, rumours that turned out to be untrue by the looks of things. Then why do I want to run away from him so badly? Maybe, if I try, I could even be happy here. There’s no happiness to be found in captivity though. A gilded cage is still a cage. I don't want to live like that ever again. Sighing, I turn away from the closed door and fetch the clothes from the bed. I’ll figure it out later. Tomorrow perhaps, when I’ve had a chance to speak to Clara. She's older than I am and she's been on the run for close to ten years now. She'll know what to do. For now, there’s not much I can do. The king is in the apartment with me, and with his super senses on high alert, I won’t be able to fart without him knowing about it. I gasp in surprise when I enter his bathroom. I thought mine was lu

Chapter 8
Kaiya “What did you see?” Griffin repeats the question. “Oh,” I say. “You actually want an answer?” “That would be nice.” I consider lying to him, but for whatever reason decide against it. “She didn’t look…quite right. Almost as if-” I feel ridiculous just saying the words aloud -“she was a ghost. Her hair just sort of…floated.” Griffin’s menacing demeanour softens and his amber eyes fill with sadness. “I assure you, she is very real...and that's the hell of it.” “Yeah. I figure maybe…maybe the full moon…” I throw my hands in the air. “I don’t know what I saw, Beta.” “You should call me Griffin. You’ll outrank me soon.” He sighs like an old man carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders. “She’s my mate.” “I…yeah, you did kind of look in love.” He chuckles humourlessly in response. “The thing is, Kaiya, she died more than eighty years ago.” “The fuck you say,” the words slip out of my mouth before I can stop them. I’d think the Beta was trying to make a joke, but he lo

Chapter 9
Bowden I spent most of the day focusing on my work, not even leaving my desk to eat lunch so I could make a dent in the mountain of paperwork waiting for me. There are always endless requests for extra protection from the smaller packs, or a need for mediators between feuding packs. Orphanages need funding and widowed she-wolves need protecting. It never ends. Since I’d been gone for nearly four months, the wolves had to wait until I returned to see me in person, and today there was a long line outside my public office on the ground floor. Most of my day were taken up dealing with their problems while I tried to work through everything else in between listening to wolves' endless, petty grievances. Griffin and Jaeger can usually handle most of the wolves’ personal issues and only refer the most serious cases to me, but even after they filtered out the unimportant requests, the sheer amount of people waiting to be seen was overwhelming. I close my laptop and pinch the bridge of my n

Chapter 10
Bowden Kaiya stares at me in utter disbelief. “Why are you telling me?” “I don’t want you to get your hopes up and think that this will ever be anything more than it is now.” “So…what’s the point then? Why am I here? If there's not...I don't...” she throws her hand in the air, unable to give voice to her turmoil. “Knox, my wolf, needs his mate. Without her...without you, he becomes...well, uncontrollable, homicidal. It is what it is.” "So this is all for your wolf?" Wordlessly, I nod at her. Kaiya bangs her glass down onto the side table, sloshing water all over the furniture. “Then I’ll just reject you,” she says and plants those tiny fists in her hips. “He can just find someone else, because I don’t want to be in some loveless-" she flails her arms around -"whatever this is for the rest of my life.” “Hm,” I grunt. “Go ahead. Try to reject me.” “I Kaiya Cole, daughter of Alpha Deimos Cole, reject you King Bowden…” she hesitates, looking to me for the answer to her unasked ques
