by Melissa Kay Clarke

Carson Hennison is a dreamer, a very special individual with the gift of being able to “dream” or see into a person’s life both past and, to an extent, future. Her one hope is to find her perfect mate – the one werewolf that was created for her and she for him. However, sometimes things don’t go as well as you would wish. Instead of being allowed to find her own mate, she’s forced into a mate run where she’ll be chased, caught and captured by the strongest male and forced into submission. Will she find a way out or will she be lost forever in a loveless mating?

Chase Blackston, new healer/doctor for the Sapphire Lake Pack, is a confirmed bachelor with a firm grasp on how his life is going to be – ordered, neat and unencumbered. Sent to Sapphire Lake as a replacement for their aging healer, he had no intention of letting anything change his mind or his life. Attending the mate run for his new alpha’s daughter, Chase realizes the prey is more than she seems – she’s his true life mate. Can things get any more complicated?

And who is that stranger watching her from the shadows?

~~~ Excerpt ~~~~

“But,” she licked her lips and leaned over the edge of the desk. “I’m your daughter. Doesn’t my happiness mean anything at all?”

He lowered his head into his hand and scrubbed the stubble of his jaw. “Your happiness means everything to me, Baby Girl. But happiness has to take a backseat to survival. We are pack rulers, happiness doesn’t always get a say-so in our lives. We have to do what we must to ensure the health and happiness of the entire pack. We can’t be selfish…”

“Me wanting to be with the one that was created for me is being selfish? Honestly you can sit there and… and… sell me for the sake of the pack?” She threw her hands into the air.

“Carson, listen to me. You haven’t found your life mate yet and are over the age of eighteen. Our laws say…”

“Damn the laws, Father! I won’t be thrown to a pack of testosterone laden slobbering males with mating the only thing on their minds. I’ve read the archives about mate runs. They are cruel, barbaric rituals that force a wolf to submit to the strongest male. It’s all instinct. What about love? What about tenderness? Don’t you even care what you are doing to me?”

He snarled and stood up, throwing the chair behind him. She winced thinking perhaps she had pushed him too far but stood her ground. Stalking around the table, he grabbed her arms in his hands. “Of course I care. Do you think that I want this? Do you think I happily accept you being mauled by some random brute? You are my daughter, Carson. You are my flesh and blood. Nothing would make me happier than to see you settle down with a good wolf who would treat you as the precious princess you are.” He let her go and resumed pacing. “The council is getting very anxious for a beta for our pack. I’ve stalled as long as I can, but I can not do it any longer.”
