Black Hills Wolves Book 13
Tao Pack Tracker, Alanna Kemp possesses the rare gift of mind control. She allows nothing to stand in her way of keeping the existence of shifters a secret from humans—until she meets a sexy human doctor who stirs emotions long buried and puts her Wolf on a lethal edge.
Bastian Storm wants to start a new life in a new place where no one knows about his failures as a doctor. But when his past catches up to him, threatening the life of an innocent, he must place his trust in the hands of a woman with a deadly secret in order to save more lives than his own.
He dropped his shoulders. “I don’t understand the feelings you rise in me. I want to be angry with you, shake the truth out of you. Yet, I can’t bring myself to do it. Am I crazy? Maybe.”
“Promise me you won’t speak of this to anyone, and I’ll take you home in the morning.” Her Wolf paced and whimpered at the same time. Yeah, Alanna didn’t want him to leave either. But what kind of life could she offer him— even if he could accept her true nature? The heartache of a rejection would be too much for her to bare. The only option was to let him go and make sure he kept his promise.
“Yes, I promise.”
She sagged in relief. “I’m going to check on Cody and make a phone call.”
Hoping he would take the hint she wanted privacy, she made her way to Cody’s room and closed the door before pulling out her cell.
Drew answered on the first ring. “How’s Cody?”
Alanna glanced at her son and some of her tension eased. “He’s doing better.” She paused, searching for the words. “Bastian doesn’t know about us. He thinks I’m a witch.” “You let him believe that?” “Yes. He’s grandmother was one. To him it makes sense, I guess.” His heavy sigh sent a shiver down her spine. If she hurt lying to her mate, it was ten times worse lying to her Alpha. “I think he’s my mate.”
Silence filtered through the cell phone connection, soaring her stomach. She sat next to Cody and racked her fingers through his fur. “Drew, I’m sorry. I messed up, but I freaked… I….”
He let out a low growl. “The human is your responsibility. Mate or no mate. Are we clear?”
“Get some rest, Alanna. Keep me posted on how Cody is doing.”
“I will.” She ended the call and studied Cody, hoping he’d wake soon and be able to tell her who shot him. All the while figuring out what she would do able Bastian. One thing was for sure, she couldn’t ignore the urge to mate. She had to know one way or another. Even if it meant living the rest of her life with a broken heart if he rejected her.
Tempting the Wolf (Black Hills Wolves Book 13) (Kindle Location 281-299). Decadent Publishing.
More than immediately meets the eye here. Bastian is in danger and so is Alanna because of the identity of Cody’s shooter.
A quick satisfying read, with some steamy sex and fur flying fights.
