Black Hills Wolves Book 3
She’s a bad girlfriend.
Nothing Xio Davis does is right. When she abandons her pack, riding out of town on the back of a stranger’s motorcycle, she finds she’s bitten off more than she can chew. First, it’s small-time crimes, then bank robbery. As Xio sinks into the criminal underworld, the FBI catches up with her. Now, she’s got one way out: snitch.
When Xio turns state’s evidence against a Mexican drug lord, Agent Marcus Cazador steps up to take her home, giving up his career, his place in the El Paso pack, and all he knows to protect her.
Xio claims she’s not the same wolf who left ten years before, but can she convince Marcus she’s changed her wicked ways? Or will the Black Hills be the end of the road on her long journey to redemption?
An FBI agent and a bank robber, a match made in… well fate. Marcus has given up his job and his pack to return Xio to the Black Hills. Xio is his mate, and she would be safe with him and her pack.
Xio is fighting the mating urge as they make the trip. Returning to Los Lobos, Xio wants a fresh start. One that includes searching for clues about her ancestry, and learn to speak Mandarin her grandmother’s language. She was an infant when they died so she never had the opportunity learn it before. In the back of her mind are other things she has done. There is also the fear that her ex would send someone to kill her.
One of the things I really love about Xio is her arguments with her wolf. Somehow they are almost like my arguments with my computer. This is one of my favorite scenes when they stop at a motel on the way.
Sleeping with him would be a mistake. The chances of them bonding were above average. Avoiding it got harder with each minute that passed in his presence— and away from it. Damn, she was jonesing bad. She wanted to take a bite out of that man.
Or break the law.
Xio banged her head against the fiberglass siding of the shower. No!
Her she-wolf growled in frustration. You can’t resist once you hear the call.
Right. Resist this, bitch. She’d tell him a thing or two, straighten this out right away. There’d be no sex. There’d be no mating, and she sure as hell wasn’t going to do the alternative. Cuffs were so last season. Time to set him straight and get it all off her chest. Once she did, things would go back to the way they were before she met him.
Xio shut off the water and snatched the towel from the rack, wrapping her body, not bothering to dry off. She stormed into the room, and one sniff told her he still stood outside. Waiting. For what?
With a snort she threw the door open and stared at him. “We need to talk.”
Is that what you want to do?
His gaze swept over her nearly naked, very wet body, and she shivered. A fine, very masculine brow lifted slightly, and a smirk tugged at the corner of his mouth. “About what?”
Actually, now that he asked the question, nothing came to mind. Need coursed through her, and her pussy began to throb. Screw it. Her current tactics weren’t working. Plan B.
Xio reached up, untucked her towel from above her breasts, and let it drop. Time to scratch the itch. She’d worry about the other problem later.
The smirk disappeared and his eyes turned copper, nearly glowing in the darkness. “Do you have any idea what you’re doing?” His nostrils flared and her stomach flip-flopped.
“I have a damn good idea.”
“I’m not someone you can play with and toss away when you’re done.” He didn’t step inside but continued to stare at her.
“You don’t want this? I know you been feeling it since we left Texas.”
“Baby, I want this more than you can possibly know, but until you’re ready to commit to me, it’s not going to happen.” He reached past her, grabbed the door. “Put some clothes on. I’m renting another room.” This time he was the one to slam the door in her face.
Footsteps receded and Xio growled. “You did not just….”
Yeah, but he had. Her wolf howled.
You’re not helping.
Neither are you.
Black Hills Desperado (Black Hills Wolves Book 3) (Kindle Locations 447-472). Decadent Publishing. Kindle Edition.
Marcus and Xio have a lot to learn, both about each other and their new pack. Drew is a fair Alpha but there are things he just won’t tolerate.
There is a lot of action in this book. Combined with who knows what about whom. I couldn’t put it down until it was done.
