Oh, sh*t … At first, I wasn’t sure what it was, but as I took that deep breath, my heart started to pound faster, and when I did it again, it felt like I was drugged with the strongest and sweetest scent I had ever scented. It was a smell of rain and forest, something that reminded me of the old days when I used to be a knight. A fighter. It reminded me of the days I had travelled and all those nights under the open sky and surrounded by the big forests that no longer existed. I couldn’t explain it, but I had never tried being affected like this only by a scent. Her sweet scent almost blocked out her normal werewolf scent. I turned in my chair, slowly the person coming into view. I knew I had said she was pretty, but now that she stood in front of me and I got a real look at her and scented her, I suddenly saw the most beautiful woman I had ever laid my eyes on. Her beauty wasn’t the kind where you would look at her and think she was made to perfection. No, she was hidden well, wearing a black dress, that I could see she was uncomfortable wearing and a blazer too big for her. She had her hair up in a messy ponytail and no make-up on. It looked like she had truly tried making herself look more composed and important, but she was like a fish out of water. No wonder she was so unqualified. She definitely didn’t fit in here, and yet I didn’t tell her to go. No, I couldn’t. I felt almost enchanted by her. Everly has finally become the powerful CEO of her own company and no longer is under her family’s control. She is living her life and loving it! But when one day she needs to hire a new assistant, a woman enters her life. A wolf, who turns out to be her mate. Ava is running from her mate, who has abused her for so long. She changes her name and runs to New York in hopes to hide from him because she knows if he finds her, she will not live for long. She is pregnant, and he wants his heir, but that does not mean she will be spared. She gets a job at a big tech company, in order to support herself, but she had never expected to run into her true mate … a vampire. Will Everly and Ava be able to figure out a way to be together or will Ava’s secrets ruin everything? Nothing stays buried for long … To get a deeper understanding of some of the characters it is recommended to read The Hybrid King\'s Hidden Mate.
“I know, but still to think we would end up here now.” “Do you … regret it?” I asked. He seemed surprised I would ask this, but we should probably figure out if this was something we wanted to explore or if we wanted to end it now. “I am not sure what to feel,” he told me honestly. “I don’t either …” “You have been through a lot.” “And so have you,” I said. “But I was never mated to a …” His voice kind of died towards the end, because it was clear he was not sure what he could call Connor since we had been mates. “You mean a sociopath?” I asked. “Yeah …” “I know what many think of him, and I can’t say I ever really liked him, but it was for different reasons …” Lauren is finally free of Connor, but when she wakes up from the pain she has been trapped in after her connection was cut from him, she finds out that the Goddess is not done with her. She learns that Logan, Lara's father is her true mate, but Lauren is not sure how to feel. She has a lot to figure out, and not just about Logan, but who will run her pack now? Logan has not been lucky when it comes to mates. Victoria, his first true mate, abandoned him, Camilla, the mate he chose, died, and now he finds out Lauren, who was mated to the crazy Connor, is his mate. Can he really make it work with her? Or will his bad luck hit her too? *Book Fourteen* Recommended to first read: A Bite From An Alpha King, A Beta's Undying Love, A Second Chance Mate, A Luna's Broken Heart, An Alpha's Choice, An Alpha's Dark Secret, A Luna's Power, An Alpha's Favor, A Beta's Half-Blood, A Spiritual's Mark, A Queen's Dark Prison, An Alpha King's Revenge, and An Alpha's Love And Fire
“How can you know that, when you haven’t even tried?” I asked her. She sighed and looked at the ground for a moment, before turning back to me again, and I could see the pain in her eyes, how broken she looked. She might have gotten her mark removed, but she had lost herself. It was clear as day. “I put my heart into everything I do,” she said. “I put my soul into it, and I can’t take that risk of trying because I know what will happen.” “You don’t know,” I said. “But I do. I do know.” “Cecilia …” “Don’t … Don’t give me some long speech why I should give this a chance,” she said. “I can’t …” “Why?” “Because I will fall in love with you,” she said. I stood there shocked, as I heard her say those words. It was everything I wanted. Her love. I wanted her to fall in love with me because I could think of nothing better, and I knew she saw it in my eyes. She knew I wanted her love. Lucian has wanted to find his mate for so long, but it never seemed like the Goddess wanted to bless him with one. He even hoped Angela might be his mate because she brought a light into his dark life that has been filled with tragedy and being used by his uncle to keep dark secrets and take care of things he did not wish to take care of. He uses other people to forget his pain, but one day when nothing seems out of the ordinary a stranger enters a life ... or he believes she is a stranger. Cecilia knows what it means to have her heart ripped out of her chest ... Literally, and she refuses to ever let her heart feel anything for anyone again. She drowns herself in work, but when Lara, her luna, invites her to the castle, she meets her second chance, Lucian. She doesn't want him, but can't refuse him either, and Lucian is not one to give up. Can Cecilia ever overcome her fears? And what happens when Lucian's dark past won't stay in the past anymore? #Dreame Writing Marathon--Love Story Contest #Summer Update Programme *Book Thirteen* Recommended to first read: A Bite From An Alpha King, A Beta's Undying Love, A Second Chance Mate, A Luna's Broken Heart, An Alpha's Choice, An Alpha's Dark Secret, A Luna's Power, An Alpha's Favor, A Beta's Half-Blood, A Spiritual's Mark, A Queen's Dark Prison, and An Alpha King's Revenge.
F*ck … I wanted to ask what, but my voice seemed to have gotten lost somewhere. I couldn’t speak. We can’t kill him … Again, I wanted to ask what, but I didn’t even get to think the word, before my wolf whimpered loudly inside my head like she was in pain. She seemed to actually be in pain. I could see her writhing around like she was fighting something, until suddenly she was lying down, her tail tugged in, and she had a submissive look in her eyes. My wolf was nothing but submissive. She was sassy and quite fierce. This was unlike her, but then she offered me an explanation. Mate. Of f*cking course. Of course, the last hybrid male left in the world was my mate … It was just great. I had really hoped that even the Goddess, I had seen my mother pray to every night, would at least have wanted me my freedom too, but instead she had given me to the very person I had despised my entire life, because I knew if he knew I existed, he would want one thing from me, and one thing only. Being mates would make it twice as hard to fight him, but I would fight him. My freedom was what mattered. Nothing more. Ronan lost his mate long ago. They were the last hybrids in the world but also destined mate. He swore to never want another. So, for hundreds of years, he continued to rule on his own, mourning his dead mate and child, until one day he learns he might not be the only one left. Amber was never given much of a choice. Like her mother, she knew if people knew she existed, they would want to pair her with the hybrid king and force her to have his child. She doesn’t want that. She wants her freedom, but she was forced to live hidden away from the world, until her mother died. Then she couldn't contain her curiosity and ventured out in the world. It was a big mistake, and soon she finds herself in chains, just waiting for the king to come to her and do what she has feared the most. Get her pregnant. What Amber didn't know was the king wanted nothing from her, but will it be enough? The council of vampires and werewolves won't give up that easily. They want the king to have an heir, but the real challenge is fighting the mate bond between them. They think they can keep away from each other, but can they? #Dreame Writing Marathon--Love Story Contest
“Think very hard about what would be smartest right now. Lying or the truth,” I said before he got to say he didn’t know anything. I was going to find Connor. Someone had to know where he was, and even if I had to travel the world to punish all those who wanted to get rid of me, then so be it. I would gladly show who was the ruler here if they needed me to, but I knew once word spread around that I was hunting down the traitors, people would soon fall in line. They couldn’t help themselves. “Well?” I said. Julian seemed close to snapping, and I knew it was just a matter of time before … Suddenly Julian went for the gun, grabbing it and pointing it at me. I just smiled and leaned back in my seat, and the others didn’t move either, as the other alpha stood up and kept pointing the gun at me. “He will bring a better world,” Julian said. “He will get us all killed. The humans will never accept us. They can’t handle it.” “We will kill them!” he said. I shook my head. “Maybe there was a time when we could overpower them. The thing is they have evolved. They no longer use swords and spears. Now it is guns and missiles. We simply cannot win,” I said. “And that right there is why no one will ever follow you! You are weak!” he told me. “Well, if I am so weak, what are you waiting for?” I asked. “Pull the trigger.” Chris is dead, Kate is gone, Hope has been k*dnapped, Phoenix lost his mind, and Octavia and Valerio are both trying to fight for what is theirs. Their whole world seems to have gone completely off the rails, but none of them are willing to give up. They can't do that now that they must avenge one of their own. Connor has to die, and The Dark Soldiers must be overpowered. This war is coming to an end, but will our heroes be able to get out of it safely? Or are we going to lose more? #Dreame Writing Marathon--Love Story Contest *Book Twelve* Recommended to first read: A Bite From An Alpha King, A Beta's Undying Love, A Second Chance Mate, A Luna's Broken Heart, An Alpha's Choice, An Alpha's Dark Secret, A Luna's Power, An Alpha's Favor, A Beta's Half-Blood, A Spiritual's Mark and A Queen's Dark Prison
“Not sorry to tell you, that I prefer another female in my bed,” I told her. She didn’t seem very satisfied with that and narrowed her eyes. I just rolled my eyes and walked away, into the bathroom, quickly undressing and getting under the warm water, but I wasn’t there for long. I knew the quicker I got some sleep, the quicker I could get back to work. So, I showered at lightning speed, before drying off and walking back into the bedroom naked. The cat seemed already to be sleeping, and I quickly got under the covers too. I didn’t care if I pushed her. This was my bed! And I hadn’t invited her, but as soon as I got under the covers, the little fatball lifted her head and then got up so she could lie on my stomach. “No!” I said, but there was no stopping her. She climbed onto my stomach and started making herself comfortable. She ended up lying down, so she could face me, and once again it looked like she was smiling. “What can I do to get rid of you?!” I asked, but she just laid there, closing her eyes, and looking so damn comfortable, I didn’t have the heart to move her. I just fell down on the bed, sighing deeply, before I pushed an arm under my pillow and got comfortable. The little cat started to softly purr, and I was surprised when the sound actually seemed to calm me. Soon, I was fast asleep. For the first time in a long time, it wasn’t a nightmare that held me trapped. No, I actually dreamt a good dream about my mate. Her in my arms, naked and still breathing heavily after a good round of mating. Her head on my chest and one leg over mine. I stroked my hand down the side of her face, and she was looking up at me with those unbelievable eyes. I had never seen anything like it, and my own eyes were yellow. But I had grown up with people around me, who shared the same eyes. Octavia was the last of her kind, and she was all mine. Octavia is no longer herself. After being abused for so long, she is trapped in her wolf form unable to find her way out and slowly forgetting more and more about herself, as she is dragged further into darkness. She sees everyone as a threat and leaves dead bodies all over the world, while both good and bad people chase her, all wanting different things from her. Connor wants to use her as his weapon and her mate wants her back in his arms. Valerio has gone out of his mind losing Octavia but knowing he now had Hunter on his side too, ready to help bring the queen back to him, he got a little more clearheaded and is actually able to return home and be the king he is, but he knows he will never be whole until he has his queen back. Sadly, he cannot forget himself and he needs help from the others, but will it be enough? Can they bring Octavia back and heal her, or is she truly lost to her wild nature? #Dreame Writing Marathon--Love Story Contest *Book Eleven* Recommended to first read: A Bite From An Alpha King, A Beta's Undying Love, A Second Chance Mate, A Luna's Broken Heart, An Alpha's Choice, An Alpha's Dark Secret, A Luna's Power, An Alpha's Favor, A Beta's Half-Blood and A Spiritual's Mark
“Now little one, can you tell me why my own mate is trying to have me killed?” he asked in a husky and deep voice. He licked his lips as he looked at me. “Are you not going to answer me?” he asked almost threateningly as he tightened the grip around my throat. “L-…” I tried speaking but nothing would come out. I pulled the silver knife from my back pocket and plunged it with all the force I had left in me right into his chest. He gasped as he looked down at the knife in shock. His eyes then turned to me looking almost horrified as I smiled my evil smile. “Long live my father,” I whispered almost without sound. Octavia is seeking revenge for her father the late king. She has been trained since birth to be a deadly killer by her father, but he was brutally murdered by the new king. When Octavia on her nineteenth birthday, finally sees an opening to get back at the king for killing her father she sets out to kill him, but his yellow eyes couldn't be mistaken, and she learns something she would rather have lived without. Valerio has finally gotten the throne and now has to keep the promise to an old friend who helped him get it. He has to be mated to his daughter. He is not interested in getting a queen by his side, but a promise is a promise but as he arrives at his queen-to-be's place, he finds more than he bargained for. *Book 1-10 Wolves' Fated Mates*
“I haven’t had sex in over six months, asshole. All because of you! So, yes, I am slightly pissed.” I didn’t really plan to admit this. I mean I had no plans of marrying Jax, but my words could easily be interpreted in ways that they shouldn’t be, and I could see they surprised him. “Thought you had switched me out for someone else,” he said, as he started to smile that evil smile again. I was so angry right now. He was purposely pushing me, and he knew what it was doing to me. Like him, I didn’t like to be cornered. I didn’t like that someone was forcing me to admit some things I wasn’t ready to really talk about. I was a private person. He was too. Maybe why we worked so well together, sadly, it also made it impossible for us to really let the other in. We didn’t like it when things came too close, but Jax had clearly spent these six months working on that, because now he seemed all in. “I haven’t seen Luke since I went out with Megan, shortly after she came back to Chicago,” I told him. He seemed even more surprised. “And I haven’t slept with anyone else. So, I am not going to apologize if I feel slightly hurt that you are now rejecting me, when it is clear that you did this to me! You f*cked with my head!” “What happened?” he just asked. “What?” “That night? Why did that night change anything for you?” he asked me, making me swallow hard. I didn’t remember that much about that night, but I did remember what I confessed to Megan. There was no way I was telling him though. He was playing with me, and I didn’t like that, so there was no way I was giving him anything. “That doesn’t matter,” I said. “You are the one being a jerk tonight.” “For taking you out?” “You know what you are doing!” “Oh?” he just asked. I wanted to pull my hair because he was pushing me a lot tonight. Normally, he wouldn’t go so hard on me. I loved our banter. I loved our teasing and challenging the other, but things were different tonight. He was purposely trying to push me to my limits, and I didn’t like it. Kat is not a believer when it comes to relationships. She thinks it is best just to be on your own, and have sex whenever she feels like it, but after a promise that Jax made to her, she is no longer so sure that being on her own is what she wants. Jax has messed with her head, and even if she tries to keep her defenses up, it is hard when he makes her heart beat so much faster, whenever he is near. Jax knows Kat is the one. There is no doubt in his mind, which is why he has promised Kat that she will marry him. He sees no other outcome, because he knows Kat is a runner, and he needs to lock her down with a ring on her finger, but it also means he has to work hard in order to seduce Kat. The game has begun, but can the two of them really figure out what it means to be a married couple? Will Kat ever accept marrying Jax, or will she run so fast and so far, that no one will find her again? #Dreame Writing Marathon--Love Story Contest *Book Three* Recommended to first read: Our Loveless Marriage and Our Pointless Fights
“What did you do?!” I yelled as I walked closer, hoping to take them from him, before he did more damage. He threw them away, before I could reach the papers, and then grabbed my shoulders. “I love you,” he said. “It isn’t enough,” I whispered. My heart was beating like crazy. His words were bringing it to life again, and it almost wanted to jump out of my chest, so it could be with him. Even if my mind didn’t agree, my heart was his. There was no doubt. “It is! It is enough because you love me too.” “I …” “I know you do,” he said. I pressed my eyes together, trying my hardest not to cry, and when I opened them again, he didn’t hesitate, as he kissed me hard. I couldn’t stop the tears as he kissed me. It was too good. It was like coming home. Like this was exactly where I should be. “You can’t,” I said and turned my head, but he didn’t listen. He pushed me down on the couch, and then removed his jacket before getting on top of me. He kissed me again, and I responded. I couldn’t help myself. I really f*cking couldn’t. My body was heating up, readying itself, because even my body knew who it belonged to, and for a moment I didn’t want to fight it. I just wanted to listen. Megan left feeling betrayed by Nathan's first intention with their marriage. She feared he in the end was just playing her, but she had no idea he gave up everything for her. She goes to live with her sister, who convinces her a divorce is the way, so she can finally be free. Megan agrees, and not only because she knows she has to move on, but because she has finally realized, it is time she makes a life for herself. Nathan wants Megan back. He gave up everything he had fought for, just to get her back, and after three months he has finally found her again. Sadly, Megan is still in doubt, despite Nathan wanting to give her anything she wants. Megan has changed. She speaks about finding herself, and she can't do that whilst being married to him. So, Nathan strikes a deal with her. One month she will come and live with him again. He will win over her trust and show her, that even married to him, she can figure out who she is. Will it be enough? Can Megan figure out her own ways without letting her feelings for Nathan get in the way?

Can the two of them once again learn to be the happy couple they once were? #Dreame Writing Marathon--Love Story Contest *Book Two* Recommended to first read: Our Loveless Marriage
I didn’t like being touched very much. Whoever I did end up f*cking was always bound or I made sure to keep their hands away, but something in me craved to feel her even closer, feel her hands on me, leave my scent all over her skin, like she would leave hers on mine. I would never just want a quick shower afterwards. I would never just think of her as a way to scratch an itch. I would be so f*cking obsessed. “Phoenix?” “Yeah?” “You know we aren’t getting out, right?” he asked. “You think I am planning our escape right now?” “Well, you said you were thinking.” “Yeah well … not about a plan.” “No? Is it a certain person, who has come to mind?” he asked, his voice indicating that he saw right through me, just from what I had said. “Something like that …” Hope's heart is broken. She cannot get over the fact Phoenix doesn't want her, and she hates that she is bringing everyone else down with her. She knows she needs to go. She needs to leave, so Phoenix can come home again and be with his family. She doesn't want to be the reason he might get hurt out there with Connor still on the loose, but sadly things aren't so simple. Phoenix ran away when he saw Hope for the first time. He knows what kind of evil bastard he is, and he doesn't want to hurt Hope. He doesn't want to poison her with his evil touch, but when he is k*dnapped and trapped together with Octavia and Chris, he also learns he can't stay away from Hope. He needs her, and he will never let her go once she let him in again. Can Phoenix overcome his evil past and the things that haunt him, or will he drag Hope down with him, as he has always feared? Can Hope reach the dark corners in Phoenix's heart and teach him to love her? Or are they simply too different? #Dreame Writing Marathon--Love Story Contest *Book Ten* Recommended to first read: A Bite From An Alpha King, A Beta's Undying Love, A Second Chance Mate, A Luna's Broken Heart, An Alpha's Choice, An Alpha's Dark Secret, A Luna's Power, An Alpha's Favor and A Beta's Half-Blood.
