What would happen when a crippled, love-deprived, teenage girl meets a cursed, immortal Alpha King?
Born into a world where she has been rejected and labeled a disgrace to society, seventeen-year-old Raleigh doesn't expect anyone to pine for her so badly, and especially not an Alpha King. But deep down underneath his golden eyes and his calm yet calculating smile, will Raleigh be able to see the sizzling passion he keeps hidden for her? Or will an enemy from the past break whatever bond she has?

This was an excellent first chapter. I loved reading every bit of it. Romance stories that involve other creatures, especially werewolves are my favorite. I already love the main character she is great. I also like that you gave her a big flaw like MD.

I am assuming the romance will be between her and Lucien. I cant wait to read and see how this unfolds.

Thank you so much! Yes, the romance will be between her and Lucien, and I figured giving another subplot would help strengthen their romance. I'll try updating it by next Saturday, but thank you again!
