Romance on the Go ®

Bianca is flattered to have gained the attention of the alpha from a neighboring pack, until she finds out he expects her to fall in line with all his plans without question. She isn’t going to be his mate simply because he wants her, even if he is an alpha. She makes it clear that he’s going to have to do more than growl the word “mine” to convince her to give him a chance. When he proves he’s willing to jump through more than one hoop to get her attention, she has to decide how far she wants to go. Will she be satisfied with a few unforgettable nights, or will she agree to be his because she can’t imagine him not belonging completely to her?



Daniel rushed to the front door, stopping just a few inches away and taking a deep breath. He didn’t mind Bianca knowing how eager he was to see her, but he didn’t want to literally be breathless.

Not yet anyway.

He frowned when he opened the door and saw his driver standing there. “What’s wrong?”

Louis pointed to the car. “She won’t get out until she sees her alpha. According to her, I was supposed to pick him up, too, but those weren’t my orders.”

“You didn’t do anything wrong. There was a change of plans.” He smoothed his shirt. “You can go. I’ll take care of everything else.”

“No offense, Alpha, but she’s pretty angry.”

Daniel looked over at the vehicle. “If she wishes to leave, I’ll call you. But I think I can convince her.”

“Whatever you say, Alpha.” He patted his pocket. “I’ll keep my phone close.”

Daniel nodded and then began walking over to the car. He tugged on the handle, but it wouldn’t budge. He leaned down and looked through the slightly tinted window, eyeing her silhouette. “Can you at least unlock the door?” he said.

Bianca rolled down the window. “I believed you! I didn’t even check with Tristan before he left. That’s how much I trusted you.”

“There was a change of plans.”

“There was not! You tricked me!”

Daniel considered sticking his head inside, but he worried she’d start to roll the window up again. “Yes, I did. But I’m not going to throw you over my shoulder and drag you to bed. I really cooked, and there is a proper, civilized meal waiting for you in there. Please come in and eat it with me.” He nodded to her bag. “Or call your alpha. Tell him I’m a bastard and have him come get you.”

“I’m not a child. I don’t need my alpha or anyone else to come save me.”

“Are you staying or going? I’ll beg if I have to.”

She tilted her head at that. “Will you?”

His cock jerked at the interest in her voice. “I will crawl on my hands and knees if it’ll keep you here.”

Bianca eyed the back of the limousine, which was spacious enough for ten people. She maneuvered herself to the seat behind the driver, the one farthest from him. She reached over and unlocked the door before settling back and spreading her arms across the back of the seat. “Then let’s see you crawl.” She crossed her legs and pointed the toe of her high-heeled shoe at him. “And beg.”

Heat built in his groin. If she was willing to play games, she was more interested than she let on. He liked the idea of showing her what he was willing to do as much as he liked the idea of seeing what his obedience would do to her. He’d do anything to claim her, and if she wanted to be on top, he’d be more than happy to spend the rest of his days beneath her.

But once he was at her feet, he had plans of his own.

This is a "Romance on the Go" short, quick and steamy read. It is a stand alone story about and alpha determined to prove his mate that she is his. Daniel is an alpha that Bianca's alpha is trying to merge pack business with. Daniel senses Bianca is his mate but she thinks his intentions are only carnal. He is determined to prove to her just how right she is for him. She is his perfect mate she just needs convincing. I enjoyed the story. I love Daniel!!

When Bianca's Alpha comes to her about another Alpha being interested in her its not a total surprise to her. However, she wants to make sure Daniel sees her more than a woman to sleep with. Daniel isn't used to having to make compromises but he wants Bianca so he will do whatever he needs to convince her to be his. Will she give him a chance? This is a great story that will hook you in the first chapter. This is a well written and very entertaining story. Its a book that any book lover would enjoy.

Daniel and Bianca’s story has them coming together but she wants him to show her she’s his mate just not saying it will cut it for her. So as he shows her how he feels and she discovers how she feels about him will that be enough for these two. This is a short sizzling chemistry story.

Brute Force does not work
Written by Kwallywoman on 20th Nov 2022

Brute found his mate in Bianca. She is not having his Alpha ways. She wants to make sure that she is an independent woman and doesn't want any man to rule over her. Can they discover how to make things work? Great read.

Will this alpha be brought to his knees by his mate?
Written by Nicole Potter on 20th Nov 2022

This was a fantastic read. Bianca & Daniel's had me cheering for Bianca throughout the story. Daniel is an Alpha from a neighbouring pack & wants Bianca to be his mate. His attitude is almost like me man you woman must obey. Bianca is very quick to refute that notion. Their dynamic makes for great reading as Daniel is kept on his toes.

Short Story
Written by Jeanne Richardson on 20th Nov 2022

This is the first book I've read written by Marie Medina; I can’t wait to read more of her books. This is part of the Romance on the Go Series; it is a stand-alone short story. The story is about Bianca & Daniel. I received a free copy of this book via booksprout and I’m voluntarily leaving a review.

Entertaining and steamy
Written by LBing on 20th Nov 2022

This was an entertaining shifter romance that has our gal, Bianca, setting the tone for how she wanted to be treated if she were to mate with alpha Daniel. He was so used to barking orders that he was really thrown by her attitude...until he figured out that he needed to prove he wasn't going to cage her. Then the sexy times began ;P Steamy banter, topping, knotting and so much more happen in this fun read. I loved the advice he got from his beta: if you want a queen, treat her like one. Lots of guys need that lesson. Lol! Anyway, these two were well suited and he really did go all out to show her he was the one for her. I enjoyed this fast paced story and look forward to checking out more books by this new-to-me author :D

Bianca has no desire to do so just because he says so. If he wants her he going to have to work at getting her agreement.

So good!
Written by Mistie Best on 20th Nov 2022

I really enjoyed this one. Although this is technically a shifter romance, there ready isn't much of the "shifter" element aside from the alpha/beta and pack component. This is much more heavily focused on the couple themselves. Daniel and Bianca met when Daniel was brokering a business proposition with Bianca's pack. While working with her pack alpha, he scented her and knew she was his mate. Bianca doesn't believe in mates, so Daniel has his work cut out for him. Their journey is interesting, to say the least, and Bianca is definitely difficult. She's attracted to Daniel, but she doesn't want to give up her independence. Watching these two figure out how to make things work made for a great read. Loved it!

Brute: Bianca & Daniel
Written by Shell R on 20th Nov 2022

First time reader of Marie Medina and I loved it! I loved the cat and mouse play between Bianca and Daniel. Daniel is a big, pushy, insistent aphla and he is after his true mate Bianca. Bianca doesn't believe Daniel is her mate and doesn't like to be forced into doing anyone's bidding. Little does Bianca know that Daniel will change her mind and not every encounter he will be a brute but handsome persuasive alpha. Enjoy

A fantastic read
Written by dachief72 on 20th Nov 2022

This is my first Marie Medina novel, and I wasn't disappointed. Deliciously dark and sinful. Great characters, and a well written storyline. Would recommend.

Really good read!
Written by Ash J on 20th Nov 2022

I enjoyed this paranormal romance. It was the first book I've read from this author but won't be my last. Daniel and Bianca's story was entertaining and steamy. I loved how Bianca was a strong and independent female character. I do wish there was more of problem in the story than just Bianca trying to be strong and stand up to Daniel but this was a very enjoyable read.

Lovely Brute
Written by Diana Acero on 20th Nov 2022

Everybody wants a brute in their lives, or at least I do. This short story is super enjoyable. On a fast peace but descriptive enough.

Bark vs. bite
Written by RahiaLeight on 20th Nov 2022

I'm not sure that "Brute" is the right title. Daniel didn't seem like a brute to me, but I know much is implied. Still, I found him to be a little arrogant to start, but not as brutish as I expected. Fast paced, well-rounded story. I liked it. Bianca is a tough cookie who wouldn't just comply. It was nice.

Good story
Written by Ula on 20th Nov 2022

Well written and developed story. Wolf shifters are my favorites. The story Has a great plot. A strong female and a male strong enough to submit to her. All together an Enjoyable read.

Not quite so brutish!
Written by Laura S. on 20th Nov 2022

Daniel was a bit old fashioned, which maybe made him come across as a brute, but Bianca decided to give him a chance anyway, on HER terms! This is a nice, soft romance, where our brutish hero needs to come into the present century to win the independent woman of his dreams. A fun read all around!

Wow!! So very steamy and full of romance
Written by Sarah ES on 2nd Nov 2022

I absolutely loved this book and couldn’t put it down once I started reading!! The hot confident alpha in this story lit my panties on fire!! He was everything you could ask for in a loving and passionate mate. Looking forward to more books by Marie Medina!!

Written by christyann74 on 26th Oct 2022

Daniel and Bianca have a fun story. She is sassy and independent and shows the alpha that being over the top is not the way to win her over. I voluntarily read an advanced copy.

Daniel And Bianca
Written by Jamee hunter on 15th Oct 2022

Daniel is the alpha of his pack. When he meets Bianca he knows right away he wants her to be his mate. He’s a bit cocky and thinks he can get whatever he wants but can she get to know and love the real him? I recommend reading this

Great story
Written by PHOENIX96 on 11th Oct 2022

To be wanted by an Alpha is every female wolfshifters dream, but for Bianca, she wants more security than an Alphas claim of mine. Daniel wants Bianca, but he's in for a surprise when his demands dont have the intended results, he's got to prove him self, but will it be enough for Bianca? Well written short but packed with steamy scenes, desires, mates and more!

“You can’t get through dinner without saying naughty things to me.”
Written by Anij on 11th Oct 2022

This was a nicely written, very short piece the didn’t have much plot but at only 57 pages there wasn’t much time. It did introduce the two main characters well and there was enough about them to make them seem real. Bianca was a really strong female and despite being very much a control freak I really liked her. She definitely didn’t put up with any crap. Daniel, the main male character, was supposedly the title character as well. He didn’t really come across as a “brute” and even though he was his pack’s alpha, he seemed kind of submissive in some ways. It was almost like she was the dominant in the relationship but I never got the feeling she was supposed to be. I think the attempt was to make him be changed and devoted but he instead he just seemed weak. I believe it would have been a better story if he had been as strong and self-assured as was hinted in the first chapter. I did enjoy their banter and they seemed to have great chemistry, though. And as I said, everything was limited to the 57 pages that the book has. I like the author’s writing. She is new to me and I’ll definitely be open to reading another book by her. This book is actually more of a 3 1/2 but I rounded up because of her actual writing.
