After meeting Kent last week, today I want to introduce you to Hadrian.
Hadrian is an alpha wolf from London, who finds himself suddenly valuable after the RMS Titanic sinks in April 1912, taking many alphas and their seconds along with it. He is distinctly less than impressed when Kent turns up to abduct him, but quickly finds their fortunes are tied together. As they travel south, Hadrian is drawn to Kent and the mystery he presents, but they are from different worlds…
Hadrian is played by Damien Lewis, but more period drama and less Homeland. Hadrian is older than Kent, but in many ways has seen less. Here are three significant images from Hadrian’s story: a dissembled Luger pistol, which Hadrian threatens Kent with the first time they meet; the RMS Titanic, which changed Hadrian’s life; and, well. You’ll have to read the story to understand the significance of that last one!
An exiled shifter. His alpha mate. And a desire so intense it could be the death of them…
York, England, 1912
Kent was a pack outcast. His shifter instincts cruelly muted, he was collared and kept as a stray. Until he was offered his freedom—for something in return. He must rescue Hadrian, an alpha held hostage in the wolf highlands. It’s a pleasure for Kent to follow the captive’s scent, one so wild and virile it gives him a rush. Though he despises being treated like a mutt called to heel, he’ll gladly fall to his knees for an alpha like Hadrian.
Hadrian has never met anyone like this damaged wolf warrior. His savior who licks the blood from his wounds and who arouses in him feelings he doesn’t understand or want to control. But Hadrian suspects that more than desire binds them. It’s betrayal. Pawns in an elaborate and feral deceit, they’re now caught in the deepening maze of a vengeful shifter world, where navigating the mysteries of the heart could prove just as unpredictable and dangerous as the enemies they face.
