Tana is a fire dragon, one of only four Elemental Dragons left in the world. For nearly a year she has been fighting in the Arena, a supernatural gladiator fighting ring where you fight to the death. Most die in their first competition. Others survive a couple of weeks. Only a few have survived this long. She has hidden her true identity from everyone. If they knew what she was, her fate would be worse than the arena. Cedric is an Alpha werewolf. When he was captured by hunters, he assumed his pack would find him quickly and free him and the other shifters. When they never come for him, he is forced to fight for his life in the Arena. It is here that he meets Tana. They form a bond and help the other survive. Cedric is sure that Tana is his mate and assumes that she is an Alpha werewolf. When they finally get their chance to escape, Cedric identifies Tana as his mate and in a night of passion, he marks her. Only, when he sinks his teeth into her neck, he feels power like he has never felt before and he realizes she is no werewolf. Confused and angry at what he considers a betrayal, he leaves, only to return to find her gone the next morning. One night of passion was all it took for Tana to become pregnant. After being rejected, she goes to the city and makes a new life. For five years she has avoided werewolf packs, hoping to never see Cedric again. But he has been searching for her since the night he left. What will happen when business brings them together and he finds that Tana has a daughter? Will he accept her or will he reject her again?View More
Cedric, Palila and Kenna left before the sun rose. Kenna was excited to carry her father back to the pack. I’m happy that she’s excited, but it will be sad coming home to a nearly empty apartment tonight.“I’ve left food for you, Tana. And I probably won’t be gone long. I’ll see if it’s a place where I can make a home and then I’ll come back until you are ready to leave.” Palila says.“Thanks, Palila. But if you’re having a good time, don’t feel the need to rush back. I’m planning to come visit this weekend anyway.”When I get to the office, I go directly to Edur’s office. He isn’t thrilled to be losing me. He and I make a great team. But as soon as I walked in, he smelled Cedric and the baby on me, so he knew what had happened.“As long as you’re happy Tana. And as long as I can pull you in for the hard cases. No one can sniff out the money like a dragon!” He says to me.“Thanks, Edur. Do you know the process for telling the others? Cedric mentioned that there might be a notice that
After Avani left, we all settled back into the living room, Palila putting on a pot of tea for all of us. “What do you mean we need to talk about where we’re going to live.” Ishir starts as Palila comes back into the room. “Well, I need to speak to Edur, but Cedric obviously wants me to live with him.” Tana turns to look at me, and I take her hand. “And I won’t be able to be away from him for longer than a few days at a time now, so we need to figure out living arrangements.” I turn back to the room. “Tana and I have already talked about keeping this apartment. If she’s able to work contract or remote, she’ll still need to come to the city on occasion and I’d rather have a place that’s comfortable for everyone.” “You can continue living here, Ishir, just as you have been.” Tana tells him. “What about me? I won’t have a job any longer, not without anyone here to look after.” Palila says and I can tell she’s nervous about the prospect of having to start over all alone. “Actually,”
I didn’t think. But I should have known. Avani warned me. He said we’re more fertile with our mates and after only four days, I’m pregnant again. And I have no idea how Cedric will react. We’ve only just come together and we’re still trying to find our way. I needn’t have worried. “You’re pregnant? Are you sure?” He asks. “Well, no. But last time, it only took that one time together and a couple of days later, I couldn’t call on my dragon. It wasn’t until Ishir caught up to me and smelled Kenna that I realized why. But that was the only time in my life when I couldn’t call to my dragon form.” His smile is dazzling. He pulls away and looks down at my stomach before looking back up at me. “Really?” “You’re not upset?” He grabs me, spinning me around in a circle. “I’m thrilled. Do you think it’s a boy or a girl?” I shrug. “I don’t know. Ishir could smell Kenna’s cinnamon scent, but you know how good his nose is.” He drops to his knees in front of me, sniffing my stomach. “I can onl
It’s been four days since I claimed Tana. Four glorious days, but I know life is waiting for us and we both have responsibilities we have to get back to. Most importantly is our daughter. After another marathon love making session, I pull Tana up to go to the lake we found nearby. We both need to wash the sweat and sex off our bodies. I’ve waited to have this conversation because I was concerned about Tana’s impression of what life with me would be like. While I want her by my side, I also know that she has created a life for herself, and I need to know that she is willing to argue with me to have what she wants. But now, it’s time for us to think about heading home and we need to decide what we are going to do. We, not me. “Tana, we need to talk about our plans, next steps for us.” “You want me to quit my job.” She states. “I want you and Kenna with me. I want to talk about how we can make that happen.” I take her hand, pulling her with me into the water. “What do you want, Tan
Cedric doesn’t seem to realize the power that he now has over me. He seems surprised that I’m not fighting him like I have been up until now. It’s my duty, as his dragon, to explain to him what it means to be a rider. As I fly him back to our cave of treasures, I think about how long it’s been since a dragon has had a rider. My parents and many other dragon couples were two mated dragons, so they didn’t have to claim one another. To my knowledge, it’s been a couple of centuries since the last dragon was claimed. Many humans and supernaturals have tried and they lost their lives in the process. Because of that, the humans started writing stories about the ferocity of dragons and then they wrote stories about the noble dragonslayers who would save the kingdom from the mighty, ferocious dragon. In reality, all that happened simply because they wanted to tame a dragon and they weren’t strong enough to do it. Obviously, Cedric is strong enough and he’s the first and only dragon rider in t
I’m exhausted, I’m burned, I have a dislocated shoulder and some broken ribs. I knew claiming Tana would be hard, but damn, my girl is a fighter. I want her to know that I love her and I’m only doing this because I want her at my side. I would never force her submission this way if I didn’t have to. I want a partner in my life, not another pack member. At first, when she blows her fire on me, I think she’s still fighting, until I feel it. The power, the adoration, the love, the submission. She gave herself to me and if I thought I had felt pleasure before when I marked her, this was a whole other level. Euphoria, like I’ve never felt before floods into my system. This is different than what Kenna showed me. It’s the difference between a daughter’s love and a mate’s love. I only have a moment to enjoy it before I’m feeling my body healing. Every broken bone begins to mend, my shoulder snaps back into place, the blisters covering my body soothe and disappear. Her submission healed me.
The next day, Jena and Bastian emerge from her room. She has quite the mark on her neck. It looks similar to mine, whereas the one on his neck is a single puncture, but larger, as if she punctured him with her beak. I guess that’s what she did. I expected to hear from Cedric that day but I didn’t. It wasn’t until the next day that I got the call. “Tana. Are you ready to be claimed?” He is all arrogant Lycan. “I don’t think so Cedric.” “Oh, I do, beautiful. You are mine and it’s about time you realized that. Turn on your phone’s video.” He orders. So arrogant. At first, I refuse. “Tana. You’re going to want to see what I have here.” “Nothing you have will draw me to a battle with you, Cedric. I have no interest in killing you.” “Hmmm, so maybe I should empty this incredible cave of treasures.” He ponders out loud. I snarl, flames licking at my mouth and nose. I can’t turn the video on fast enough. When I do, I see that Cedric is at my cave of treasures. “There you are, gorgeous
I watch as Tana leaps off the patio banister and shifts, flying away. “Dammit!” “Would you really take me from her?” I hear a soft voice behind me. I whip around, and in two steps I’m in front of my daughter, kneeling down so I’m at her eye level. “Baby girl, I would never take you from your mother. But you both belong with me. You are my daughter, she is my mate, we should be together.” “She’s made a life here, Cedric.” Ishir says to me. I grit my teeth and pick Kenna up, turning to him. “She’s. My. Mate.” He shrugs. “What if it was you? Would you up and leave everything for her?” He looks at me. He knows I can’t. “I have a pack to run.” “And she has a company to run. Why is your life more important than hers?” “It’s not, it’s just….” I run a hand through my hair. “You left her once, Cedric. Now you want her to give up everything and trust you, not only with her heart, but with her daughter? She’s terrified you will take Kenna from her. And I’m giving you fair warning, if y
