When Magnus learns of his estranged father's deathbed wish, Magnus tries to find Mykaela to inherit the alpha's multibillion empire. Will their choices protect them from the dangers along their path? Or will they resort to drastic measures to escape the lethal fury of the Italian and Russian mafia? 18+ Romance Crime Vampire Werewolf [This story is intended for MATURE readers.]

2 ◆ Fresh Start ◆
◇ KEL ◇ New York  Power through.  You escaped death.  You're invincible.   Those words became the pretentious mental conditioning I fed my traumatized brain for weeks on end, until I was able to shut off the dreadful memories and my life felt somewhat back to normal.  I had to.    Otherwise I might've ended up in a psychiatric ward.  Alone.  Ill.  Ensnared and paralyzed by evil thoughts and horrifying images of that night.  I  had to fight it all off and push through with my life.  I'd kept telling myself that I was fine, that I was past it...until it eventually became the reality in my mind.   The pretense became loathsome and felt ridiculous at times, was necessary.  I couldn't let my family know what happened back in San Pietro.  They'd go berserk and would unquestionably push me to file

3 ◆ The Alpha and His Mate ◆
◆ MAGNUS ◆ American soil.  Finally. It had been a while of lonesome, anxious, sleepless nights in unfamiliar territory. Going home never felt so easy and gratifying until now. At long last. Broad daylight, free to drive around the city, no unwanted company, no gun-toting punks tailing me everywhere I went. Even better, no demanding mafia boss telling me what to do. Bossing me around every way he could. Damn. I missed this place and the anonymity. Although temporary, every part of me still cherished the feeling. Nothing like living your days and nights of your own accord. Go wherever you want. Whenever you feel like it. Read more
4 ◆ Catching Up ◆
◇ KEL ◇    New York    9:29PM   "How's Miles?"   "Better," Niccolo sighed over the phone.   "You sure?" I sat on the couch as I watched my Mommy Tilda tidy up the small dining table, unsure whether I should mention that I was on the phone with Niccolo, Miles' ex-boyfriend.   She'd definitely ask a barrage of questions I didn't have the will or courage to answer.  I'd rather not mention that I was also friends with Niccolo.  Otherwise I might bring up some highly confidential facts about the Falcos and their elaborate involvement with the Italian mob families.   My mother had cooked dinner and practically forced me to eat more than usual, knowing I was mentally and physically exhausted from our training.  Clinical rotations, still.  Mom said she would only be staying here for two days

5 ◆ Legal Matters ◆
◇ KEL ◇   "Are you frickin' kidding me? Why didn't you just tell me you needed more money? I could've asked Dad."   I plugged my earphones in and sighed to myself, minding my best friend's incredulous tone and apparent disappointment in my recent decisions.  Although I knew that Gaia's family had some real estate properties under their name, I never tried to borrow money from her or her family for my tuition, student loans, and some of Daddy Jim's hospital bills.  I just didn't want to inconvenience them in any way.    For the past few years, Gaia had also been busy studying for the bar exams.  Clearly she thought I should've just asked her for financial help, instead of borrowing a huge amount of money from Enzo, a guy I just met some months ago.  Her point was valid.    But, too late for reprimands.  I had already paid for loans and hospital bills using Enzo'

6 ◆ Not A Fair-Weather Friend ◆
Note: [ Italian-English dialogue translations in brackets ]   ◇ KEL ◇  It was almost midnight and I still had lots to read up on to prep my brain.  I also had to start on my study plan for our scheduled rotation in the Surgery Department next week.      Study.  Study.  Eat.  Sleep.  Study.  Give it my best.  Pass the assessments and trainings.  Study some more.   It was basically my routine for the past months, much like a full-time job I was tied to, actually.  In just a couple of months, we would then have to seriously prepare for the Shelf Exam.   "So proud of you, sweetie. Just keep up the momentum, get enough sleep, eat healthy, exercise," had been my mom's usual advice for me lately.  The 'exercise' part, I had been ignoring quite often—only because I preferred to read books in bed for hours than going to the

7 ◆ For Real ◆
◇ KEL ◇   It was past midnight and I should be reading through my new medical books.  Despite the fact, I couldn't just hang up on him now.  I was tempted to, but I didn't want to be rude to Enzo just because Miles didn't want me to keep talking to him.   What Enzo just said made him sound like he was badmouthing Miles and the Falcos.  I'd never thought Enzo would lie to me about something that important.  Was he being truthful now?  Or was he simply trying to manipulate my emotions? It kind of made me regret picking up the phone. Although the conversation was already making me rather queasy,  we had to talk things over or else the sneaking anxiety keeping me awake at night would never go away.     "It's just disappointing, y'know?" I said while a heavy feeling in my chest weighed me down.   It made my insides ache somewhat.  Although I'd been trying hard to d

8 ◆ Nice To See You Again ◆
◇ KEL ◇   The next day, after spending a few hours in our campus library, I decided to go home early for a change, too tired to burn more mental energy on  General Surgery books.  Also, I was failing to manage another anxiety attack. No surprise there.  It had been a difficult couple of months without Miles around.  He used to be my Xanax.  Spending time with him was always better than taking anti-depression meds.  He almost always knew how to cheer me up and he helped me overcome my inner demons countless times.  I loved him for that. Too bad he couldn't stick around anymore.  Sometimes I really missed him that it would upset me how I couldn't hang out with him anytime I want.  I couldn't call him up every day because I knew he was busy with a lot of work—his father clearly wanted Miles to earn his pay, and not get handed money simply because he was the boss' son and only child.   Read more Protection Status
