Royal Alpha (High House Canis #5)
by Riley Storm
All her life, Heather has lived with the knowledge that at any moment, she might lose control and turn into a murderous beast. The Loup-Garou virus lives in all female shifters and can manifest at any time before their thirty-first birthday—which is still a year away. Only thanks to her family’s protection is she living a life free, instead of behind bars. So when her mother cons the new King of their House into mating her off to a political rival, Heather feels little choice but to agree. Even if that man is the complete opposite of the person she truly longs for…
Logan has led the rebels of House Canis in their long struggle for freedom, and now that they’ve ousted the former Tyrant King from their ancestral home of Moonshadow Manor, his followers have all but anointed him their ruler. The position is tenuous at best until the official coronation ceremony, however, and a string of bad decisions leaves him vulnerable to several political figures. He must focus on keeping his House united, which means giving his blessing for the only woman he’s ever cared about to be mated to someone else.
Although their relationship may have ended three years earlier, that doesn’t mean their feelings have been extinguished by time. If anything, the flame has burned higher with distance. Both Logan and Heather are fighting their hearts, trying to do what they see as their responsibility to House Canis instead. It’s what’s demanded of them by their peers, and by their own sense of morals. But the more time they spend together, the harder it becomes to resist temptation. Will they be able to find a way to be together, or will duty win out over desire?
