Beast Smith has a secret. He knows who his mate is, but he hasn’t told her, nor has he claimed her. He wants to, more than anything, but Suzy Cain is … weak. He has to protect her, and even if that means staying away from her, he will do it. But being close to her without claiming her is torture. When he catches her alone, he can’t deny himself any longer. He has to have her.
One kiss and Suzy’s body is on fire. She can’t believe this man is hers, so when he summons her to his cabin, she intends to tell him just how wrong he is.
Beast is not wrong. He is the alpha. He’s strong, determined, and won’t take no for an answer—and Suzy wants him more than anything in the world.
The full moon is approaching, and their mating can no longer be hidden. Can Beast protect her from the pack he fears will reject their mating? Whatever happens, he will do what it takes to keep her safe. She is his mate, and it is time the pack knows who they are dealing with.
“You shouldn’t be out here by yourself,” Beast said, startling her.
She spun around, and sure enough, the alpha, who was twice the size of her, in pure muscle stood there, looking a little … torn.
“I’m sorry. The dance is in the barn. There are a lot of women waiting for you.” There was that scent again. The one that made her want to walk up to him and run her hands all over him.
She didn’t cave to scents though.
“What are you doing out here? Did someone upset you?”
“No. Of course not. I’m just taking some time to relax.” She smiled at him. “You came.”
She was so happy that he did.
He surprised her as he took another step toward her.
Suzy stayed perfectly still as he approached. Tilting her head back, she had no choice so she could look at him.
“I don’t want you out here by yourself.”
“I’m perfectly safe.”
“I’m the alpha. My word is law, and when it comes to you, you’re not safe.”
She put her hands on her hips. “Excuse me?”
“You heard me. You’re not safe, and I won’t have you hurt.”
“Is this because you think I’m weak?”
“You are weak, Suzy.”
He grabbed her arm, and the moment she touched her, she couldn’t help but hold onto him. Even as she tried to fight it, she wrapped her arms around his neck and pressed her face against it. He smelled like heaven.
So rich and addictive.
Her pussy went slick.
She was a virgin, and right now, she wanted to press herself against the length of his cock and rub him until he came.
Beast let out a growl, and within a matter of seconds, she was pressed against a tree. Her heart was racing, only it wasn’t out of fear. She didn’t know what was happening, only that she couldn’t stop herself from aching for more of his touch.
“What is going on?” she asked.
Beast stared at her for what felt like the longest time, his green eyes turning to a light amber before flashing back to green. He grabbed her arms and pressed them above her head.
“You’re going to keep your fucking mouth shut about this.”
Before she could even ask him about what, his lips were on hers, and she was melting against his touch. His lips took possession of hers, and as he bit down just a little, a need for him began to build stronger than ever before.
