    Summary

    Arranged marriages were a completely bazonkers idea in general, hence their nonexistence in 21st century America, but millenia-ancient magic didn’t care about modern courtship rituals like dating, and this was a time-honored method of getting what he wanted.
    What Stiles wanted, all he wanted, was to protect his dad. And his pack. And Scott, who despite having abandoned Stiles in high school to join the Hale Pack, was still the best bro he could ever have, so that made for two packs.
    The point is, if marrying a distant acquaintance can possibly stabilize the entire county and protect basically everyone he cares about, Stiles is gonna do it. And he’s not going to freak out about it.
    Much.
    So he talked to Hideyo, Satomi’s emissary and his mentor.
    Hideyo talked to Satomi.
    Satomi called Laura.
    Laura got Deaton, and the five of them met at a taco truck, of all places.
    It was in neutral territory. And the tacos de carnitas were legendary.

    Summary

    “The place you give the Bite has meaning," Derek says. "Biting someone on the side is to make them your beta. It makes them your subordinate, but it also invites them into the pack with the full protection of the alpha. Biting someone on the legs indicates that you’re turning them to an omega. And biting someone on the arm, particularly the wrist, turns someone as your equal. It’s a mating ritual.”

    Stiles nearly chokes on a mouthful of granola. “A what?”

    Summary

    "So, you're going to ruin your niece's baby shower with flowers in the wrong color?" the florist, Stiles, asks when they reach the counter. He pulls out a binder and starts flipping through it.

    "Not ruin. Mildly inconvenience," Peter says.

    "Right, messing with a hormonal pregnant woman seems like a great plan."

    "To be fair, her fiance and the father of her baby is my ex-boyfriend," Peter says. "And we weren't broken up when they started 'dating'."

    Stiles looks up at him in surprise. "And you're still getting her flowers?" he asks.

    "It's under duress, I assure you," Peter says. He absolutely wouldn't be here if his alpha hadn't ordered it.

    "Well, shit, yeah, let's get you some purple revenge flowers," Stiles says.

    Summary

    Peter Hale has a tension headache building behind his eyes, a nephew who has picked the wrong time to have a crisis of conscience, and a bound and gagged college freshman in the trunk of his car as he speeds north along Highway 101. This is not how he intended his weekend to go, but Peter is nothing if not adaptable.
