Hide your girlfriends, hide your daughters.
Tad Dawson, confirmed bachelor and runway model, has come back to the Black Hills for his brother’s wedding. Also known as Romeo for his love them and leave them attitude, Tad has a reputation to lose and a woman to win. However, he won’t be able to do it on his own, since the woman he wants would rather assault him with nail guns, power saws and rocks. Not what he expected when he turned on the charm.
Megan could use a good dose of anger management, along with a shot from Cupid’s bow, and lord knows she has a lot to be mad about when it comes to Romeo. Tad left her five years before after she declared they were mates. Not only did she have to deal with a crazy Alpha, who got off on tossing her to the wolves, she’s heard rumors Tad’s appetite for anything with a skirt has grown since he left. Not that she could confirm it. He’s hasn’t called or written once.
For Tad to win the love of his life, he’s going to need some help, and the four pack matchmakers have decided they are just the Wolves to assist, whether he wants their help or not. No tactic is too dirty or underhanded. Bringing down Romeo is going to take every trick in their match-maker’s bag.
Bagging the girl, well, that could be a bit trickier.
Will the four matchmakers beat the nearly impossible odds, or will their tactics unravel at the seams?
Before the wedding is over, someone is going down, and if the matrons have any say, it’s going to be hard.
Well the matrons are at it again, but this time it’s a little different.Tad aka Romeo left the Black Hills when Magnum was threatening to have him fixed because of his sleeping around with the she wolves. On the day he left Magnum had decided on a mate for Megan, she was only eighteen and had run to avoid the mating. Now she had to accept her fate or her family and friends would pay. She knew even then Tad was her mate, she had wanted a kiss from him so he would know too. It didn’t happen.
Now five years later he is back for his brother’s wedding, to a human no less. Something unheard of when Magnum was Alpha. He was scared that he would find Megan mated with pups and happy. Instead this was his reception from her.
He headed for the family Hummer he’d borrowed from the business in Hot Springs, since his car wouldn’t make the logging roads in—not without dropping the muffler.
Bang, bang, bang.
Tad turned toward the source of the noise and froze in his tracks. Not three buildings over, a slender woman in jeans and a green tank top held a pneumatic nail gun. She moved around, working on the deck of a partially framed building.
She stopped and looked up, flipping her dark hair over one shoulder.
Tad changed course and headed for the new construction. “Hey.”
She turned and moved away to another section of the building.
Tad followed her around the side. “Megan? Is that you?”
She spun around, lifted her hand to shield her eyes from the sun, and stared at him. “Dawson?”
“Yeah. Don’t you recognize me, Meg?”
Pthunk, pthunk, pthunk, pthunk. Meg fired a series of nails.
Tad dove out of the way and rolled behind a shed. “Hey! Is that any way to say hello?”
Pthunk, pthunk, pthunk. They struck the side of his hiding place.
“Whoa, what the hell did I do?” He sniffed. Yeah, that shower he’d skipped out on. Not good. Had she caught a whiff of the women who were hanging on him before he left? Could explain her hostility.
“You really have to ask?”
“Go. Leave me alone, Tad Dawson. I don’t want you here.”
“You are such a liar, Meg.” He stepped out from behind the shed. “The last time we talked, you wanted me to kiss you, to prove I’m your mate—or has that tidbit slipped your memory?”
She picked up a cordless saw and started toward him. “Oh, I remember quite clearly.”
Tad eyed the shiny blade. “What do you think you’re going to do with that?”
She smiled. “Use your imagination.” She fired it up. The whirling blade screamed.
Tad backed away. “I’ll come back when you cool down.”
“I wouldn’t recommend it.” She glared at him.
Tad stalked to his truck. Why did everyone threaten to take his nuts off? He jumped in and slammed the door, watching the woman on the deck with the evil tool in her hands. She didn’t mean it. Did she?
Megan flipped him the bird.
Good probability. His wolf chuckled.
