Bianca is flattered to have gained the attention of the alpha from a neighboring pack, until she finds out he expects her to fall in line with all his plans without question. She isn’t going to be his mate simply because he wants her, even if he is an alpha. She makes it clear that he’s going to have to do more than growl the word “mine” to convince her to give him a chance. When he proves he’s willing to jump through more than one hoop to get her attention, she has to decide how far she wants to go. Will she be satisfied with a few unforgettable nights, or will she agree to be his because she can’t imagine him not belonging completely to her?
Daniel rushed to the front door, stopping just a few inches away and taking a deep breath. He didn’t mind Bianca knowing how eager he was to see her, but he didn’t want to literally be breathless.
Not yet anyway.
He frowned when he opened the door and saw his driver standing there. “What’s wrong?”
Louis pointed to the car. “She won’t get out until she sees her alpha. According to her, I was supposed to pick him up, too, but those weren’t my orders.”
“You didn’t do anything wrong. There was a change of plans.” He smoothed his shirt. “You can go. I’ll take care of everything else.”
“No offense, Alpha, but she’s pretty angry.”
Daniel looked over at the vehicle. “If she wishes to leave, I’ll call you. But I think I can convince her.”
“Whatever you say, Alpha.” He patted his pocket. “I’ll keep my phone close.”
Daniel nodded and then began walking over to the car. He tugged on the handle, but it wouldn’t budge. He leaned down and looked through the slightly tinted window, eyeing her silhouette. “Can you at least unlock the door?” he said.
Bianca rolled down the window. “I believed you! I didn’t even check with Tristan before he left. That’s how much I trusted you.”
“There was a change of plans.”
“There was not! You tricked me!”
Daniel considered sticking his head inside, but he worried she’d start to roll the window up again. “Yes, I did. But I’m not going to throw you over my shoulder and drag you to bed. I really cooked, and there is a proper, civilized meal waiting for you in there. Please come in and eat it with me.” He nodded to her bag. “Or call your alpha. Tell him I’m a bastard and have him come get you.”
“I’m not a child. I don’t need my alpha or anyone else to come save me.”
“Are you staying or going? I’ll beg if I have to.”
She tilted her head at that. “Will you?”
His cock jerked at the interest in her voice. “I will crawl on my hands and knees if it’ll keep you here.”
Bianca eyed the back of the limousine, which was spacious enough for ten people. She maneuvered herself to the seat behind the driver, the one farthest from him. She reached over and unlocked the door before settling back and spreading her arms across the back of the seat. “Then let’s see you crawl.” She crossed her legs and pointed the toe of her high-heeled shoe at him. “And beg.”
Heat built in his groin. If she was willing to play games, she was more interested than she let on. He liked the idea of showing her what he was willing to do as much as he liked the idea of seeing what his obedience would do to her. He’d do anything to claim her, and if she wanted to be on top, he’d be more than happy to spend the rest of his days beneath her.
But once he was at her feet, he had plans of his own.
