    Summary

    She looks up at him. His face is too soft, too open. Ready for her to reject him, call him one of the ugly names people reserve for alphas, to remind them of their place as primitive remnants of an old system that most people have evolved past, outcasts who have to be controlled. He’s already wounded without her having to wield the blade.

    “Please,” he says and reaches out a hand. She gasps and flinches away, though he was nowhere near touching her. “Please. I’m not—I wouldn’t. Don’t run. I promise—I would never hurt anyone.”


    A lonely young woman arrives at the cottage she inherited from her grandfather on a remote lake in northern Ontario, to find her neighbour is a rare Alpha, a relic of the old days when humans were ruled by their designation. Across a long hot summer, they connect over their shared history, and she finds that the past may not be as far away as she assumed.

    Summary

    The women stand on platforms in silence, their faces a study of humanity. Here anger. There desire. Fear. Defeat. Ambition. Need. Hope. Their stories are all different, merging only now, in the warm glow of spotlit pedestals and the quiet tension of the moment.

    The men walk among the platforms, inner animals tightly leashed. No foul play in the Hall. Only a snap of teeth here, a low growl there.

    They are circling their prey, readying for the hunt. The combined scent of the women is intoxicating, disorienting, undeniable,—it sings to the beast inside in a language of sweet blood and dark forests. Everyone is affected. Everyone can feel that strange, ancient imperative pounding in their veins.

    Everyone but one.

    He will not hunt. He will not lose control. He will not. He is here only because his master demands it. The others stay far from the big man and his searing, whiskey-dark eyes. They know who he works for. They know what he’s done.

    Summary

    Alone at Christmas? Mad at your dad?  

    I’m a thirty-year old alpha with years of experience in dealing with difficult family dynamics. If you’d like to have me as your strictly platonic date for Christmas, but have me pretend to be in a very long or serious relationship with you to torment your family, I’m game. 

    Beggars, Rey decided, grasping for any lifeline, can’t be choosers.

    Summary

    The play Rey is trying to direct is dark -- violent and sexually explicit. Ben is a non-union actor with no resume to speak of, but she's taken a chance and cast him as the male lead. That's not going to work if he keeps mumbling all his nastier lines to his shoes.

    Rey's going to have to do some intensive work to get the performance she wants from him.
