Rejected mate? Huh! No one is more rejected than Lucianne in The 5-Time Rejected Gamma and the Lycan King by Stina’s Pen. In most shifter romances the most times a wolf could be rejected is once … then they could possibly get a second chance mate. Many do not even survive rejection. So, can you imagine how strong Lucianne is to survive 5 rejections?
When she meets Xandar, the Lycan King, at a gathering of Alphas, Lunas, and Gammas and he asked for her name, she already assumed that he was going to reject her. Turns out it was furthest from the truth! Xandar was eager for his mate and while he could not understand why anyone would reject her, he was glad they did because it meant that he got to be her mate. He set out to prove himself worthy to Lucianne. Can you imagine that? The Lycan king trying to convince a werewolf that he is good enough.
This story is really good and is unlike most shifter stories I have read. Despite Xandar being the king, it is obvious from the start that Lucianne is our protagonist and is stronger than most. Unlike what we are used to, she is well-loved by many and is actually on good terms with most (if not all) of the men who rejected her. I know that is weird but you have to read the book to find out why. There is something very special about her and a large part of the book is devoted to either following Xandar and Lucianne’s romance or figuring out what makes her special.
As with most strong protagonists she has deadly enemies who put a smattering of spice to an already rich story.
The 5-Time Rejected Gamma and the Lycan King by Stina’s Pen story is long so while I started reading it on Goodnovel, I ended up buying the ebook at Barnes and Noble for 14.99. It sounds expensive but for 753 pages of a good story, I am willing to spend. The paperback version is available on Amazon for 24.09, sadly no Kindle version. I almost bought it, too, but when I was about to check it out, Amazon ran out of copies.
The 5-Time Rejected Gamma and the Lycan King by Stina’s Pen is an excellent story. You won’t regret the purchase, I promise.
