Dedication

 

To my loving husband, who puts up with the long hours spent in front of a computer, and still supports me no matter how many hours I spend there. To my kids, who understand when I say I can't do something because I need to write. And lastly, I am thankful to my readers, if not for you, I would never be able to do what I love—write.

Prologue

 

"Here you will find the answers you seek, our beloved children. Too late we found the prophesy was not complete, now you must continue… find the…"
Giovanni Castrella read and looked up at the woman standing before him. His own private wet dream was back. “And?”

“What do you mean and?” the woman yelled. “I am showing you the key to all of our futures, you need to tell them about this.”

Gio shrugged, “They already know.”

She was once again all in black leather, his cock rose in anticipation of a little fun if she calmed down. Gio knew from firsthand experience that if she were in a bad mood during sex, he would have a lot of scratch marks in the morning.
Normally a guy wouldn’t mind that
, he thought as he grinned,
but with this hellcat, it actually could become uncomfortable for an hour or two
. She was vicious and he loved it. She was his mate and refused to talk to him about it.

It was okay, Gio knew she hadn't cheated on him since they discovered each other, but he also knew they were supposed to have a third, and he would mate with her with their third. That was the way it was supposed to be apparently, they would be the final piece to the puzzle.

The Drekinn Pack was on a mission. From the very beginning, they weren’t sure of where this situation with the Bondi King and the
Ulfer
would lead. Now they knew, they needed to defeat the
Ulfer
and Bondi King in order to take control of the paranormal community. Once they had done that, they would be better able to fix the problems with the ruling government. The Prentiss Agency were the ones to overthrow the Drekinn, and they were going down. Humans had forgotten what it was like when they lived together in peace with the paranormal community. The ruling party had convinced them yet again that shifters were dangerous. It was something they had battled. What it boiled down to was the humans were afraid the paranormal community was going to take over. That could not have been further from the truth.

The paranormal community hated politics, and they were thrust into them because of the coming out, and most were happy to just be consultants to the humans. It only took one person to get it into their head that someone was overstepping their boundaries. It kinda pissed Gio off knowing all the effort the Chosen had put into making it successful, only to see that it had been sabotaged before it even started. A few hundred years of peace and then the new generation got paranoid again. Well, it was going to end this time, he was there to help make sure of it.

“They already know?” she yelled. “You are just now telling me they already know about this? We barely discovered this, I am sick and tired of suddenly remembering shit, and then finding out you did too. We need to work on our communication. Did you have the same vision…memory…whatever the fuck they are?”

Gio shrugged, “Yep, and the Drekinn are going to help us figure it out. Seems to be the only clue we have as to how to fix this shit.”

“Duh, asshat,” she snarled. “So I guess I gotta go and see them now?”

“I wouldn’t, I think you should let the last incident settle a little, they were a bit pissed about your attitude,” Gio said slowly. “I will go and talk to them.”

His woman snorted and turned around. Damn she was sexy when she got her back up. “Whatever.”

“When are you going to tell them?” Gio smirked.

“When I am damn good and ready. When are you?” She threw back at him.

“Soon, I figure my secret is nothing compared to yours, so I will let you throw the wrench into their plan.” He laughed and stood.

“Where the fuck are you going? We have more to talk about!” she yelled as he walked to the door.

“No, you have more to talk about, I have people to help. There is a difference, we can’t play with them like this,” Gio said firmly.

“I am not playing with them. You know as well as I do, if I tell them too soon it will fuck everything up. There is a time and place for everything. Besides, we don’t even know the whole truth yet, we only know what we are supposed to right now,” she growled.

“Those are your rules, I have my own,” Gio said and walked out of the room with a chuckle when he heard the glass he had been drinking out of hit the door.

 

Chapter
One

 

“How in the hell is this possible?” Pilar said, stepped back, and looked at her brother. Her life was spiraling again and she was refusing to go with it this time. Pilar had been waiting for so long to hear her mate say it was time to let the world know they were true mates, of course it could never be that simple.

Of course not, they had a third, and just found him. However, he was tortured and unconscious, the story of her life. For years, the mating pull has been riding her, but knowing that both men were so close, it was becoming unbearable. She was going to explode from sexual frustration, she wondered if that could happen, death from lack of orgasm. Nah, if that were the case, the millions of women who faked it would be crispy critters.

“I have no idea, I just cannot remember, something is like blocking it,” Phillip said and ran a hand through his hair. Her twin brother was just as frustrated as she was. They could tell someone had put a spell on them, now that they knew some of the facts. It was time to tell the rest of the pack exactly what was going on, it would be a real blow to them, but she knew they would forgive her and Phillip. Why wouldn’t they?

“You mean to tell me that all this time we have been working against ourselves? I know her, you know her, we can remember some of it but why not all of it? Where are the others?” Pilar said frustrated. “Freakin’ hundreds of years and we are just now getting it? We have an enemy we never even knew we had.”
