His own mother disowns him for being gay. And there are those who still want his gay Alpha’s dead. Will he find the temerity to confront the all powerful Alpha’s of these other packs? Will he find his fated mate?
I couldn’t believe that Tim convinced me to break up with Sally. I knew that I would have to do it eventually, but we had been dating
from the age of fifteen. I mean I love her, but only like a sister. I was thankful that Tim said I could crash at his house with his dad for a while. She would be sitting outside my house and calling me at all hours. I left my parents a note letting them know my whereabouts and what was going on, so they would find out from me, not her.
I groaned as my phone alerted a new text message. I rolled over to look at the display and saw it was from my mom.
’Come home when ready’
I wasn’t looking forward to this conversation because she liked Sally. She thought we’d marry at some point or that we’d at least mate. I was saving myself for my mate. I knew none of the others would get my first kiss, but they’d be my first for everything else, including my first true love.
That night I dreamt of a man that made my wolf sit up and take notice. During my morning jog I came across a slender man with blue eyes that smelled almost like lavender. My wolf was going crazy; it was as if it knew something that I didn’t. When our eyes connected my heart stopped and my wolf cried out, “Mate!”
I sat up with a start. My mate was a guy! I’ve never looked at a man in that way, but something just felt right with this man. Did I want a mate so badly that my subconscious had created one for me? I needed to talk to Tim’s dad about it to see if he had ever heard of something like this happening before. I’ve always been straight and had feelings for women.
I told Tim it would be okay for his mate to be another shifter, but was I going to accept that my mate was the same sex? Being with your true mate is supposed to be amazing and there’s nothing else like it. But would it be possible to be happy with someone else if you had never met your mate. Rejecting someone or being rejected is painful, at least that’s what I’d been told, and I don’t want to live through that if I can help it.
I knew that if I met my mate, whether the person is male or female, I would accept him or her, no matter what. I would follow the advice I gave to Tim and just accept ‘what can’t be changed’, because there must be a reason why the Moon Goddess chose a male for my mate.

About the author:
Rachel Ravenheart is new to the literary world, but has had the desire to write since she was in junior high school. She moved from a small town in Iowa in time to start high school in Louisiana.
Rachel lost sight of writing as she got bogged down with sports and school. Her dream of being a writer forgotten as she looked to the future to study Political Science with the hope of going to law school when she moved to Texas.
To make her way in the world she got wrapped up in the field of nursing when she got a job as a C.N.A. and soon even her dream of law school was forgotten. Strangely, thanks to an injury she was at home recuperating and was bored when she remembered her love for writing. Never thinking she would ever get published she began.
It was writers like Rob Colton, Mann Ramblings, and Alicia Nordwell that inspired her creativity. She found GayAuthors.org and after some encouragement she decided to post her first story. With the enthusiasm of readers her confidence grew and she took the step to send off her first story to be published. It was with great delight when she was offered her first contract. Hopefully, the first of many.
