The Beta's Spitfire (Utopia 2) by Gale Stanley
Levi and I have always been best friends. Now he’s the pack Alpha and I’m his beta, a.k.a. the man who cleans up after his shit storms. This one is a doozy. He dumped his intended bride, and now it’s my job to take care of her while he goes off to find his soulmate. Delilah is beautiful, a real spitfire, and completely off limits. But she ignites a fire that makes my wolf sit up and howl.
I was meant to be the mate of an Alpha, so l accepted an arranged marriage with Levi. But the arrogant jerk dumped me right before the wedding. I’m no damsel in distress, so I took off for New York to live a life of independence. Along the way, I was kidnapped and my situation became desperate. When Samson came to my rescue, I never expected him to claim me for himself.

After Levi dumped me, my father called wanting to know our wedding date. When I told him there’d be no wedding, he went ballistic. “Arranged marriages between wolf-shifters don’t fall apart at the last minute. What did you do to make Levi call it off?”
Of course daddy dearest would blame me. It was the story of my life. My father and I never got along. He blamed our arguments on the “F” word -- feminism. According to him, equality of the sexes ruined the mating game. “Any wolf-shifter worth his salt wants a submissive wife to take care of his needs. If he can keep her barefoot and pregnant, so much the better.” If I’d heard it once, I’d heard it a hundred times. Maybe a thousand.
Levi was just like my father. I guessed that’s why Daddy picked him for me. He thought once we were married, Levi would keep me in line. Well, the joke was on Daddy. Levi didn’t even try to tame me. I asserted my independence and Levi balked. He gave me that tired old line, “It’s not you, it’s me.” Bullshit! I was sure there was more to it. I wasn’t that naive. More than once, I smelled cheap perfume on him. I wasn’t exactly blindsided, and I wasn’t heartbroken, but I was miffed. After all, I’m a catch -- the daughter of an Alpha, I come from the Chicago Shifters, an old and very wealthy pack.
But, like I said, there was more than meets the eye here. My spunky spirit was just a convenient excuse for Levi to break our engagement. Yes, he hated the fact that I wanted to be an equal partner in our relationship. Levi would have preferred a doormat, but under normal circumstances, he would have gone along with the arrangement for the sake of tradition. I was convinced Levi dumped me for another woman.
I’d been in New York for weeks, living with his parents and getting to know the pack, but Levi had been gone most of the time. He might be the Alpha, but nobody has that much business out of town, especially when they’re supposed to be getting ready for their wedding.
One thing I had learned was to trust my intuition. If I got a feeling that something was wrong, I didn’t chalk it up to being paranoid. I meditated on it and looked for signs. Levi had all the signs. He was moody, uncommunicative, critical, and he never showed any interest in sex.
She-wolves are supposed to stay pure until the wedding, but rules are meant to be broken. My girlfriends back home all had arranged marriages, but they all fucked their grooms before they said “I do.” I had expected I would, too, but Levi had no interest in fucking me. He had to be getting it somewhere else. No surprise there. Men cheat. But I expected him to at least show some interest in me. I wasn’t exactly an ugly duckling. Even Levi’s beta had eye-fucked me more than once. Samson thought I didn’t notice, but I had seen him checking me out. I knew he was undressing me in his head and wishing he could really fuck me. It was hot as hell, but neither of us ever took it any further.
The Alpha’s Demiwolf (Utopia 1)
I’m a demiwolf -- half wolf, half human, and both species despise my weird mix of genes. Despite the fact I strip for a living, I’ve hung on to my virginity for twenty-two years. Until I got knocked up by a big, bad wolf. Now, I’m going to bring another demiwolf into the world, but his father will never know.
I’m all wolf, and Alpha of my pack, committed to keeping our bloodlines pure. Then on the night of my bachelor party, I hooked up with a stripper. I just wanted to teach the demiwolf a lesson, but the sex set me on fire. My wolf claimed her and now I can’t get her out of my head. But what if she won’t accept me?
