I belong to the Volana wolves, marked as a target of Evil. My blood possesses the power to grant eternal life. Since the age of 10, my father imprisoned me, taking the life of my wolf and subjecting m e to a horrifying assault. No wolf. No mate. No hope. Until Quinton offered to be my contract mate. As the three-year contract comes to an end, I find myself pregnant. However, he intends to reject me. --- "I'm going to be a mother!" I exclaim in blissful disbelief. Eager to share the news with Quinton, I've been grinning like a fool since leaving the doctor's office and practiced how I'd tell him while driving. Butterflies flutter rapidly in my belly as I climb the stairs, my body thrumming with anticipation. But the ecstatic smile fades the moment I walk in. Quinton is already there, waiting for me. Alone in the darkened living room, he holds a tumbler of amber liquid, a severe frown dominating his handsome face. Finally, he speaks, "Tomorrow I'm going to have my father put things in motion for our rejection ceremony." --- I am Quinton's burden. He marries me out of duty. Yet, when I decide to leave, seeking to give him freedom, he becomes frantic in search of me. Upon our reunion, he confesses his love for me.
