Randal Kersey had spent his entire life terrified of his father and brother, but the last two years had been the worst. Being denied his mate nearly destroyed him. When he was forced to kidnap the mate of the clan enforcer, he thought his misery had come to an end and wished only for a swift death. Instead, the alpha wanted to meet his very human mate.

Luca Buchanan had grown up around shifters, always on the outside, never accepted because he was human. Discovering Randal was his mate and they couldn't claim each other under threat of death hammered home the fact that he would never be good enough.

When Alpha Colton offers his dream of mating Randal, Luca is all too happy to accept, but there are those that want to keep them apart, one for restitution because Randal kidnapped his mate, and one because his hatred has eaten away his soul. Not knowing who they can depend on, Randal and Luca have to trust the growing bond between them and hope that it's enough.

Randal Kersey sighed as he held the curtain back and looked out through the window. He'd been holed up in this hotel room for almost two days. He was slowly going out of his mind, but it wasn't like he could argue very much. He'd kidnapped the mate of one of the enforcers of the clan. To top it off, the man was part of the alpha's inner circle and a close personal friend.

Randal should be dead.

He wasn't, so that was a plus. But he also wasn't free to come and go as he chose. At least not until the new alpha of the Silver Lake Clan decided what to do with him. Alpha Rob Colton could still have him killed or banished and he'd be within his rights to do so.

Randal had fucked up and he knew it. But he had also known he had no other choice. It was kidnap the alpha's mate or be beaten or killed by his father and brother. He had kidnapped someone, but it hadn't been the alpha's mate. He'd rather take death from his father and brother than face an enraged alpha with a kidnapped alpha mate.

Randal dropped the curtain and walked back across the room to sit on the edge of his bed. The door was locked and a guard had been placed in the hallway, so he knew he couldn't leave, but they had also taken the phone out of the room so he couldn't call anyone.

He wasn't sure why they had done that and he was too afraid to ask. He was too afraid to try and escape, too. His life literally hung in the balance right now.

The odd thing was that he had hope for the first time in a very long time. His father and older brother had been banished and escorted out of the territory and he'd been allowed to stay. He could only pray that he never saw them again.

Randal jumped when he heard a key in the lock. He quickly stood. His throat welled with emotion as the door opened and Alpha Colton walked in followed closely by the mate of the man he'd kidnapped.

Oh man, he was going to die.

Randal swallowed tightly before bowing his head respectfully. "Sir."

"Come have a seat, Randal," the alpha said as he walked to the small sitting area by the windows. "We need to talk."

"Yes, sir." Randal tried to appear not terrified as he hurried across the room and took a seat. It wasn't easy.

"Why did you kidnap Erik?"

Oh, they were getting right to it then.

"My father ordered me to, sir."

The alpha's eyebrows lifted. "He ordered you to kidnap my enforcer's mate?"

"Uh, no, sir. He ordered me to kidnap your mate, but I couldn't do that, sir."

"But you could kidnap Jeb's mate?"

Randal winced. "I didn't know he was Enforcer Jeb's mate, sir. I didn't know he was anyone's mate. I thought he was just one of the pack members that came with you."

There was a bark of anger in the alpha's voice when he asked, "And that made it okay?"

"No, sir." Randal dropped his eyes down to his hands, twisting his fingers together. "I knew what I was doing was wrong when I did it."

"Then why did you do it?"

Randal raised his head so he could look his alpha in the eyes. "Because if I didn't, my father would have sent my older brother to do it. I knew if I did it, I could help Erik escape after they left the house." Which was exactly what he had done. "If Raymond had kidnapped him, not only would he have made sure he kidnapped your mate, but we wouldn't be having this conversation right now because your mate would be dead."

Fear flooded Randal when the alpha growled.

Yeah, he was going to die.

Alpha Colton seemed to stare for the longest time. Randal tried not to fidget under his harsh gaze, but it wasn't easy. There was a steel strength in his eyes that told Randal the outcome of this talk could go either way if he lied about anything.

"Erik seems to think you have a mate somewhere," Alpha Colton said. "A human mate."

Randal stiffened. He would rather die than admit that.

When he didn't say anything, the alpha cocked an eyebrow. "Well?"

"I can't answer that, sir."

"I could kill you."

Randal swallowed again. "I know that, sir." He'd been able to think of nothing else. He didn't want to die, but he would if it meant keeping his heart safe.

Alpha Colton's hard stare bored into him like a razor sharp nail. Randal wanted to look away, but he couldn't. Some force he was unfamiliar with kept him seated right there where he was, with his gaze locked with the alpha's.

"Did you know I thought my mate was human when I claimed him?"

Randal's jaw dropped.

"He was raised human and he's never shifted." The alpha chuckled. "Hell, he thought he was human. It wasn't until he was attacked by the son of the alpha of our former clan that we learned he was a shifter."

Randal didn't know what to think of that, or what to say. "You said he was attacked?"

The alpha nodded.

"He's okay though, right?"

"He is, thank god. My men and I were able to get to him and save him before he was hurt too badly."

Randal cocked his head and frowned. "Is that why you guys were looking for a clan?"

"It was, actually. I attacked the alpha's son for kidnapping my mate. Alpha Barker didn't kill me, as was his right, but he did banish me and Casey. My men decided to come with us on their own."

Randal felt a little more brave after hearing the alpha's story. "And how do you feel about humans?"

"They taste good with honey."




"Luca," he whispered.

Luca smiled as he pressed a hand to Randal's cheek. "I feel it, too, Randal."

Randal turned his head and planted a kiss to the palm of Luca's hand. "You're mine, Luca, my mate, and I'm never going to give you up." He leaned down to press a kiss against Luca's lips, then another, each one getting longer and longer until he didn't remove his lips at all. Kissing Luca's skin felt too damn good.

He tasted like heaven.

"Mmm, that feels good," Luca whispered, arching his head back and to the side to expose more of his throat.

"Yeah?" Randal whispered in awe as he watched Luca become the sensual creature he had discovered for two years ago. "You like that, mate?"

"Yesss," Luca hissed. "Want more."

"You have the softest skin, Luca," Randal whispered as he stroked his hand down Luca's side. His breath caught in his throat when he reached the curve of Luca's ass and the man pulled his leg up to his chest. Randal's fingers slid right down between Luca's ass cheeks.

Randal quickly moved his hand away from Luca's ass and back up to his chest. As much as he wanted to sink into the man's silky depths, he wanted Luca mindless with passion first.

Randal moved his hand up under Luca's chin and cupped his jaw, tilting his head back. He swirled his tongue over Luca's sweet-tasting skin. Randal's tongue stuck to the roof of his mouth when Luca keened and his body bucked.

He was hanging on by a thread and he hadn't done more than simply caress Luca. They hadn't even gotten to the good stuff yet. But they were about to.

Randal grabbed the lube and opened it. He squirted out a liberal amount onto his cock and spread it around. His cock was so engorged, so sensitive he thought he might not make it inside of Luca before he exploded.

He gripped the bottom of his cock until the sensation to come lessoned. Once he was in control of himself again, Randal poured some lube out on his fingers then pushed them between Luca's ass cheeks. They slid easily in until he reached Luca's tight hole.

The tightness of Luca's puckered opening made Randal shudder in anticipation. He couldn't wait to have that tightness wrapped around his cock. Randal started brushing his fingers against Luca's hole, putting more pressure into his touch with each caress until they slipped inside.

Once Luca was stretched, Randal picked Luca up and swung him around. Luca squeaked and grabbed for him, which worked out just fine for Randal. He lay back on the bed and placed Luca's body so that the man straddled his body.

"You have to take it from here, mate."

Luca grinned and sat up on his knees. Randal's breath caught in his throat when Luca reached behind him. His eyes nearly crossed when he felt Luca's hands grip his cock, guiding it to Luca's tight entrance.

"Fuck, Luca," Randal groaned as Luca sank down on his hard shaft.

Randal knew Luca hot silky channel cradled him, tightening around his cock. Randal groaned, arching up into Luca's body as he gripped the man's hips tightly with his hands.

"Put your arms around my neck." After Luca did as Randal asked, Randal started moving, thrusting into Luca at a rapid pace.

Randal grabbed Luca's ass in his hands. He watched Luca's face as he trailed his hand down between the man's butt cheeks to where his cock impaled Luca.

 Randal moved Luca's hips away from his body, slowly drawing his cock back until just the head remained. Luca's mouth hung open and rapid little pants huffed out. His eyes were wide, dazed, his skin flushed.

Randal slammed Luca back down on his cock. He wasn't sure whose cry was louder, his or Luca's. He just knew he needed to do it again. He lifted Luca away from him then rammed into him over and over again.

The pleasure was explosive. Every inch of Luca's hot grip wrapped around Randal's cock. It didn't matter if he pulled most of the way out or was buried to the root, Luca surrounded him, caressed him with his silky skin.

When his knees began to shake, threatening to fold on him, Randal rolled Luca beneath him. He grabbed Luca's legs and wrapped them around his waist, spreading them further when he leaned down to kiss Luca's plush lips.

Luca lay there, his breathing rapid, punctured only by his moans. His hands gripped Randal's arms and he hooked his ankles around Randal's waist. The harder Randal thrust, the more Luca's head thrashed on the bed.

Randal was in heaven watching Luca. The man was more responsive than anyone he'd ever met, even when he didn't say a word. Randal knew when he hit Luca's sweet spot.

Luca's entire body suddenly stiffened and he cried out. Randal took note of the particular position and continued pumping into the tight hole holding him, aiming for Luca's sweet spot with every thrust. He had to use one hand to hold Luca's hips up close to his when Luca's body started to melt into the mattress.

He used the other hand to tweak Luca's nipples. He used his lips to suck up a deep mark on Luca's neck. When Luca's hands moved up Randal's arms to his shoulder and his fingernails dug in, Randal knew he was done for. He wasn't going to last another minute, maybe another second.

"Luca," Randal groaned.

"Yes!" Luca screamed. His entire body shuddered against Randal's. "Yes!"
