An alpha who won't dominate A beta who won't surrender A passion that… breaks all the rules. Thomas knows that as a beta he cannot expect to recognize his soulmate—he simply doesn’t have the nose for it. He’s no monk, but he’s too busy with his hockey career and helping make his sisters' lives with his overbearing parents a little easier.
Uriel might be an alpha but he knows he cannot bear the responsibility of bonding an omega—the sole idea turns his stomach. He has his work as a lawyer and also volunteers at an orphanage trying to help the children there any way he can. He’s dated, but he is not willing to enter the kind of relationship an omega expects and betas never believe he will stay. Except that betas cannot tell if someone is an alpha… And Uriel has no reason to mention it to a one-night-stand. The fire between them might not be fated but it's undeniable, and neither can stop at just once. But Uri's true nature cannot stay a secret long and even if Thomas can accept him, how can their love survive in a world that doesn’t believe what they have can be more than a game?
A forbidden romance from another world, where rules that keep people apart are meant to be broken. "Not Destiny" is a standalone paranormal romance with a side of hockey and courtrooms and a sprinkle of social justice.
