That whole her wolf thing is kinda freaky too, somebody else pointed out and he had a really good point that “her wolf” is the LV virus.
It’s an outside influence imposing emotions on instincts on Stacias mind such as all of that full moon craziness, the short temper and that desire to claim a powerful mate.
It’s more than a little creepy because it’s not Stacia that is interested in Declan, it’s the virus. Just look through the books and see how often it’s described as “her wolf” making the decisions about Declan and it’s not until Darkkin Queen that we see any reference to “Stacia” the person being romantically attracted to Declan.
It definitely puts a different spin on why she was with fighting herself and her attraction to Declan (with the virus pushing her to claim a powerful mate that she doesn’t want).
A fight that she loses.
Though I doubt Declan thinks of it that way he is unknowingly taking advantage of Stacias virus addled mind.
Any relationship they build is based on mind control. It’s awful and makes my skin crawl
