Luna suffers from an undiagnosed illness causing hallucinations and blackouts that have plagued her for years. The root of her bazaar illness comes to light when she meets her pro-wrestling hero, Gunner Cain, and his wrestling faction friends, The Tribe. Luna discovers her romantic connection to Gunner isn’t just a fangirl crush, he is her eternal soulmate.
Gunner wants Luna to become his Alpha dreamer mate, for as part of a prophecy written in the Lycan Oracle, Luna must choose to bond to the Alpha of the Tribe, or all will be stuck in wolf form, forgetting their humanity forever. Luna learns the steps they must take to complete the bonding ritual could also end a centuries-old curse, saving lone wolves abandoned by their packs and plagued with the dreaded Lycan fever. Gunner’s connection to Luna is more than prophecy fulfilled; it is hope for Lycan kind in this steamy shifter tale of prophecy and romance.
A dedicated bodybuilder and nutrition guru, Gunner knew all the right things to do to set his body back on track after his injury. Due to his tough training routine over the past six months, his rock hard physique was more chiseled and bulked up than it had been before. Every bit of his six-foot-four frame was gloriously muscled. A hint of a neatly shaped stubble beard set off his strong jawline. A long length of dirty blonde hair completed his bad boy look.
“You know it, Gunny. The Tribe is back in the saddle again!” Zane let out a wolf-like howl, seeming more excited than Gunner about their return. “The pack is back baby!”
Zane Mercer aka Lightning Kid was always the most over-the-top of them all. A huge star on his own, he had been the leader of the group until Gunner came along. At first Gunner and Zane became an unstoppable tag team. Having more years of experience, Zane mentored Gunner to be the megastar he became. In time, Zane stepped aside, letting Gunner take the leadership role of the Tribe while Zane moved behind the scenes, which Mr. Hargrove noticed and decided to use for the storyline. Zane would be the first to join the official crew of friends on stage. Gunner would soon follow his lead to join the Tribe and blast the group of notorious friends into superstardom.
It had been the smartest decision of Zane’s life and for his family to allow Gunner to take over leading the Tribe. Gunner watched over him, and had it not been for his friend, his whole career would have been ruined. As well as his marriage to his lovely wife and his relationship with their two children. Drugs played a big part in the downswing of Zane’s life for a lot of years. Drugs and drinking were a curse to a lot of professional wrestlers. What started with pills for an old knee injury, led to years of heavy drinking, drugs, and partying. Just like the other men in their group. But not Gunner. Gunner was always on the straight and narrow. Focused on his future while leading his friends to a better life.
“I can’t believe Mister Hargrove wants me to turn on you and the Tribe on the show so soon,” Gunner said. “It’s going to be a wild ride until I finally get to join the faction with you. All of us turning heel together will blow people’s minds.”
Zane taunted, in a cutesy voice, “First you have to play this baby face angle and finish this little TV romance storyline you’re in. I can’t believe you went along with that sappy stuff. Look, get that harp out of the picture as fast as Hargrove will let you. I’m not interested in listening to Daddy’s little girl whining all the time. Blair Hargrove gets on my damn nerves.”
