Alpha's Regret – My Luna Has A Son by Jessica Hall

The last thing Everly could remember was that she and her sister had sneaked off to meet with the other Alphas at the annual Alpha meet-up custom party. But how did she get so drunk that she woke up the next day lying next to a man unclothed? It wasn't just any man, either, but the 'Blood Alpha' himself, Alpha Valen of the Nightshade Pack. The man who owned half the city and was from a rival Pack. Alpha Valen's reputation had always been scandalous and terrifying, and of all people, she had given her virginity to him, with little to no memory of how it happened.

Even though she had snuck out of the room without getting caught, three weeks later, Everly realized that one night marked the beginning of a tragic love story between her and the man she had a one-night stand with – Alpha Valen.

She became pregnant three weeks later, but Alpha Valen denied being with her, and the pack shunned her for not aborting the child.

Everly was stripped of her title and forced to be rogue with her newborn son. Despite the challenges, she made a new life and thought she'd found normalcy. But Alpha Valen discovered he was her fated mate and would stop at nothing to claim her and their son. Of course, it wouldn’t be so easy!
