An Alpha's Pride
Tribal Bonds 2
Carlton Gregory is the alpha of his wolf pack. Daniel Everson is the electus of vampire tribe. Wolf shifters and vampires do not mix—ever. There is a deep hatred between their two people going back centuries.
So, when Daniel discovers that Carlton is his anamchara, he can think of only one thing to do. Make the powerful alpha submit to him. But tying Carlton down to his bed doesn't turn out quite like Daniel expects. He doesn't want to break the strong alpha but the more time he spends with Carlton, the more Daniel finds he's willing to submit to the alpha.
When danger starts to come at them from every direction, Daniel and Carlton learn that they have to rely on each other to survive. There's a traitor in their midsts and hunters trying to kill them. Add in the pride deeply ingrained in both of them, and learning to compromise is almost as impossible as bringing their people together. But Daniel and Carlton have one thing working in their favor—giving up their pride might just not be as bad as they thought.
Electus Daniel Everson stared across the room in shock, his entire world dropping out from under him as he watched Electus Luca Ucathya fight with Alpha Carlton Gregory. They were supposed to be rescuing Rowan, the anamchara of Electus Ucathya. They suspected that Alpha Gregory had him.
Discovering that the man Electus Luca was fighting was his anamchara was enough to stun Daniel into silence. For centuries, Daniel had searched for his anamchara. To find out that the man he had dreamed of most of his life was a wolf shifter wasn't something Daniel had been prepared for.
The alpha growled and lunged at Luca, but Luca seemed to be ready for him. He caught Carlton by the arms and tossed the man over his head. Luca swung around and crouched down, his claws extended, before Carlton even hit to the hard wooden floor.
"Where is my mate, dog?"
Daniel was impressed when Carlton rolled over onto his hands and knees then sprang forward, a long growl falling from his lips. He winced when the men collided like two immovable mountains and then both went crashing to the floor. That looked like it hurt…for both of them.
"Where is Rowan, Alpha Gregory?" Luca snapped, his fangs bared. "Where is my mate?"
"Rowan is mine," Carlton growled as he fought Luca. "He has always been mine."
Daniel tensed at those words. Fuck. Claiming Carlton was not going to be easy if the man was obsessed with Rowan. He would just have to give Carlton someone else to become obsessed with.
Daniel stayed out of the fight until he saw Luca raise a fist into the air. Despite the fact that his mate was a wolf shifter and could more than likely take care of himself, Daniel knew he couldn't allow Luca to hurt him. He quickly walked across the room and caught Luca's hand.
Luca bared his teeth and snapped his head around. "Everson?" Luca frowned, some of the anger leaving his face, being replaced by confusion. "What in the hell are you doing?"
"Luca," Everson said as evenly as he could, "you need to get off of him."
"Don't be ridiculous, Everson," Luca said as he stared back down at Gregory. "He knows something about Rowan and I want to know what. I'll beat it out of him if I have to."
Daniel snarled when Luca went to raise his fist into the air again. If Luca didn't stop, he'd have to step in and stop him, and Daniel would rather not fight Luca. They were trying very hard to have peace between their tribes, but Daniel would forgo the peace in order to keep his mate from being harmed.
"Are you out of your mind?" Luca asked.
"Get off of him, Luca, now."
Luca slowly stood up and stepped away from Gregory. "What's going on here, Everson?"
Daniel looked from Luca down at the alpha wolf still lying on the floor. He sighed deeply and his shoulders slumped as the weight of the world settled on them. "He's my mate."
"He still knows something about Rowan," Luca said as he quickly masked the surprise of Daniel’s claim. "I need to know what he knows."
Daniel nodded. "I'll get your answers."
Daniel snapped his fingers and four vampire soldiers walked over and hauled Carlton to his feet. When the alpha started to struggle, Everson pulled a black gun out of his suit jacket and shot him with a red feather tipped dart. The man almost instantly slumped, his head dropping forward. Daniel hated to do it but he needed Carlton under control at the moment. It might be the only way to keep Luca from killing him.
Daniel stepped forward and plucked the dart from Carlton's neck then smoothed his hand down the alpha wolf's cheek before nodding to his men. The vampire soldiers carried the unconscious man out the front door.
Luca turned to growl at Daniel, waving his hand toward the door. "How in the hell are you going to get any answers out of him when he's unconscious?"
Daniel arched an eyebrow and turned to look at the three wolves kneeling on the ground by the door. He snapped his fingers again then pointed to the floor. The three wolves were hauled to their feet and pushed across the room, then shoved back to their knees right in front of Daniel.
Luca's jaw dropped. "I have got to learn how to do that," he whispered to himself.
Daniel arched an eyebrow at him before turning to face the wolves. "You know who I am?"
"Do you know who I am, Carlton?"
Carlton pressed his lips mutinously together and glanced away. Daniel growled and wiggled the plug again. Carlton cried out as his eyes snapped back to meet Daniel's.
"I asked you a question, Carlton. I expect an answer."
Carlton swallowed hard. His voice was husky and thick when he replied. "Electus Daniel Everson."
Well, that part was true. However… "And?"
"Good boy." Daniel pulled the butt plug most of the way out then slammed it back into Carlton's ass as a reward. Carlton screamed and arched into the air again. "Do you want to come, Carlton?"
"Yesss," Carlton hissed.
"You know what I want."
Carlton's eyes widened and he started shaking his head. "I can't."
Daniel started moving the plug in and out of Carlton's ass, moving faster and faster, using his vampire abilities to increase his speed. "You can, Carlton, and it is the only way you will be allowed to come. I can keep this up all day long."
"Fuck me!" Carlton shouted, and Daniel couldn't help but wonder if the man knew he had yelled so loudly that the guards outside his private suite could hear him.
Daniel pulled the plug free and tossed it aside. He grabbed Carlton's hips and brought them up, and then placed the head of his cock against Carlton's tight entrance, pushing in just a little bit. He wanted Carlton to feel him, to want him until the man surrendered.
"Say it, Carlton, and I'll fuck you until you can't walk."
"C-Can't," Carlton whimpered.
"You can, Carlton. I'm your mate and it's just the two of us here right now."
Carlton's eyes were filled with intensity as he stared up at Daniel. Silence filled the room, broken only by their heavy breathing. Daniel didn't know if Carlton would give or if he would fight. He just had to wait until Carlton decided.
"Please, I need…"
Carlton arched, trying to drive himself back onto Daniel's cock. Daniel gripped Carlton's thighs tightly in his hands and held him in place. He would not take his anamchara until Carlton submitted to him. Begging wasn't the same thing, no matter how much it turned Daniel on.
"Do you admit that you are my mate, Carlton?"
"Do you submit to me?"
Carlton glared. His jaw clenched. Daniel pushed in just a fraction of an inch. Carlton's eyes rolled back into his head. "Yes!" he screamed.
Daniel drove forward with a single minded purpose, feeling every inch of Carlton's ass surround his aching cock. Carlton's deep cry of surrender was a balm for Daniel's soul. He didn't start out slow, instead going straight to pounding into Carlton as fast and as hard as he could.
The scent of Carlton's blood filled the air and Daniel realized that his claws had extended and even now dug into Carlton's golden skin. It only seemed to heighten both of their arousals, pushing them together and melding their souls together.
When Daniel felt himself getting closer, he leaned up over Carlton's body. Carlton's eyes were glazed but they followed Daniel's every movement. Daniel used one of his claws to slice a cut along his neck then leaned into Carlton's mouth.
He felt the man's slight hesitation and then pure bliss rushed through Daniel as he felt Carlton's canines sink into the soft flesh between his neck and shoulder. His cock thickened and he knew he was just moments from coming.
He reached down between their bodies and flicked the catch on the cock ring holding Carlton's orgasm at bay. The second he was free, Carlton cried out and filled the space between them.
Taking his cue from Carlton, Daniel sank his teeth into Carlton's throat and allowed his orgasm to overtake him. Having never fucked his anamchara before, Daniel had no idea how exquisite the experience would be.
Waves of pleasure washed over him as he filled Carlton with his essence and pulled in suck after suck of sweet, hot blood from the man. He panted around the bite mark as he felt the ribbons of their bonding snap into place. It felt like a part of Carlton was settling inside of him, taking up permanent residency.
It was an exchange that changed the both on a molecular level. From this day forward, Carlton belonged to Daniel, and Daniel belonged to Carlton. No other would ever fulfill them as much or bring them to this height of passion.
No other would ever smell as sweet. Daniel would be able to follow Carlton's scent anywhere, and anyone who smelled Carlton would know he had been claimed. With Carlton's blood running hot through his veins, no other would nourish him as his anamchara did.
Daniel pulled his teeth from Carlton's throat and licked the wound clean. He drew in a deep breath of air, loving the scent of their combined orgasms that filled the air. He smiled as he looked down at his mate but the smile slowly fell from his face when he saw the slow burning rage on Carlton's face.
"What the fuck have you done to me?"
