Ashlyn hasn't spoken a word since the age of eight, and her heart's never felt more protected. But, when the confident and ever so charming Derek stumbles into her quiet little world, her emotions-and forbidden desires-have never been so loud.


For twenty years, silence is all Ashlyn Holland has known. Haunted by the memories of her father, and the harrowing song of the ocean that stole him from her, Ashlyn maintains a safe distance from the rest of the world. Treading carefully the sea of fear and anguish that surrounds her, Ashlyn is determined to do all she can to protect her heart from such a tragic loss striking again.

In silence, she grieves.

In silence, she is safe.

In silence, she finds the strength to breathe.

But the silence can only last so long...

Derek Moreno is charming and devoted, and quick to see through every wall Ashlyn erects. With his arrival in town, defences fold and walls begin to crumble, the songs of her heart reaching new heights.

Together, they crest twin tides of fate, the silence she'd once sought engulfed by his gentle touch, and the whispers of a love thought impossible. For the summer, Ashlyn welcomes the noise. The disruption.

But, the ghosts of Derek's past will no longer remain silent, and their deafening power has the potential to drag them both into a current strong enough to drown them amidst their heartache.

 Rejected Warriors

"I can not believe that the Goddess would give me a mate like you," she growls angrily at me. My wolf is whimpering at the words she saying to us. "I was supposed to get Gage, hell maybe even Nick but not a weak useless omega like you. I won't now and will never want you" she continues her tirade. "She's going to reject us, look at her she doesn't want us" I scream to my wolf I can feel our hearts breaking. "We aren't good enough for her" I add. "Stop that right now Cade, we are good enough. I never thought I'd say this about our mate but maybe it's the other way around. Maybe she's not good enough for us" he responds. Even though I can feel the pain he feels.I'm pulled out of my inner conversation with the words "I, Diana Johnson rejects you, Cade Robbins as my mate" I look at her and catch a glimpse of remorse before she covers it up. She leaves me there and goes about her life."What do you mean you're rejecting me? We're mates?" I question looking at his handsome face. "She's having my pups what did you expect me to do? Leave her, my pups need me" He says. "But those were supposed to be my pups, we were supposed to have pups together" I answer quietly not quite grasping the full impact of this conversation. "Just go to your room Sabrina I don't want you here and I don't want you around me," He tells me before walking back to his family. I go back into my room sitting on my bed. Something in me feels down but I don't understand what it is. Maybe if I had my wolf she could help me explain what I'm feeling. Oh well, I only have to wait until next week until I shift. Laying back on the bed I think about what color my wolf will be.
