This is Penny’s story. The crazy, sassy she-wolf who fell for a lycan warrior, Darius Ivanovic Rykov.
Though this story is about a different character, I highly recommend that you read Catching Genesis prior to reading Fighting Darius.
Penny: I still remember the first moment I laid my eyes on him. The most beautiful man I’d ever seen. The moment our eyes met, the air sizzled between us. Everything and everyone else faded away. Those icy blue eyes. I couldn’t take my eyes off of him. The way he’s staring at me told me he’s feeling the same way. Our eyes met constantly across the room. He would be the first to tear his eyes away.
He’s so powerful, though. So charismatic. I can feel his power from across the room. He’s a lycan. I’m just a regular werewolf. I couldn’t stop thinking about him. I made up my mind that I would make him love me. I would fight for what I want. I would deny my own mate if it means I get to keep him.
I laid my heart out for him. He kept pushing me away. Three years I went after him single-mindedly. Then one day he pushed too far…and I’m tired of fighting for us. There’s no us. I’m just a fool. I’m done fighting.
So when my best friend Genesis told me that she is going to off college, I jumped at the chance to join her. I made up my mind that I’m going to forget all about him. I’ll go out there and experience life. I’ll lose my virginity over and over again if I have to. I mean, why hold on to it, right? It’s not like I’m getting an award for keeping it the longest. Not likely that my mate will keep his virginity for me. Darius certainly didn’t. Why the double standard?
So, why can’t he just leave me alone now? Stupid lycan. Ughhh…stupid, stupid lycan!
Darius: The moment I laid my eyes on her, I knew she’s my erasthai. The only one for a lycan. The exotic looking dark haired beauty. Dark eyes taunting me. Haunting me. Only I’m not looking for the one. I’m a warrior, there’s no room for a mate. A mate will make you weak. My enemies could get to me through my mate.
Then it happened. She finally gave up. For some reason, that makes me mad. Not only did she gives up, but she gets this crazy idea that she’s going to lose her virginity to some random stranger. Fvck that! That’s not going to happen. Nobody else is touching her. I’ll make her wait until she finds her mate.
She’s so stubborn, though. She’s driving me crazy just like she did for the last three years. So, why can’t I leave her alone?
