“Help,” I begged. “Need… help.” Kazek frowned at me. “You’re going into estrus, Snow. I’m planning to help you.” I shook my head, a whine catching in my throat. He didn’t understand. “No knot.” I couldn’t accept it. This had to be part of Vanessa’s plan, to make an Alpha think he could fuck me fully. She’d planned to entice Enrique with this spell, to force him to knot me. That was what she’d meant by having methods to induce the sensations. She’d cast some wicked enchantment that convinced Alphas I could handle them in a rut. Tears collected in my eyes. I’d escaped her clutches, only to fall into the hands of someone so much worse—an Alpha driven by need. She’d won. After all that… she’d still won. I crumpled against him, sobbing beneath the crushing emotions of betrayal and defeat. And worse, arousal. Because I wanted him.
