Rainbow Snippets is a fun Facebook group where authors share their work.

Another alpha moment, but this time from my WIP Third Mate, third in my River Wolf Pack series. This takes place at a pack meeting where pack members are voicing their concerns about River’s leadership and events that have taken place in the pack.  This is unedited.


Before Griffin could speak again, Stone interrupted. “Which wouldn’t have happened if you hadn’t mated with the half-human, which you did without consulting the pack.”

“Josiah is a werewolf,” River said. “And I do not need to consult my pack before mating.”

Half-werewolf,” Stone corrected. “Unlike someone who willingly takes the bite and transforms, your mate will always be part human. Which is why he spawned twin abominations–”

In two steps, River crossed the room and had Stone’s neck between his hands, thumbs cutting off the alpha’s air flow. “Don’t you ever,” River breathed heavily into Stone’s purpling face, “ever speak of my mate or children in that manner again. Am I clear?”

Stone’s dark eyes bulged and his mouth gaped. Leo stood, along with the other alphas in the room. As pack alpha, River had the right to kill Stone for such an insult, and Leo found himself almost hoping River would.

  1. Great tension. I take it Leo doesn’t care for Stone?

    I’m going to admit that I’m a little confused — there is more than one alpha in a pack? Or is this a bunch of pack leaders together at a council meeting of sorts?


    1. No one cares for Stone, lol. And yes–River is pack alpha, but there are a lot of alphas in the pack. This takes place during a pack meeting. The “abominations” have to do with something that happened at the end of the second book.


  2. Dramatic! I love River’s reaction as well as his name. 😉 I have a thing for “prejudice against mixed creatures” trope so my curiosity is at its height right now.
