USA Today Bestselling Author
After a dominance challenge left his parents dead, Mason left Willow Bend and his pack behind, choosing instead to live life on his own terms…a Lone Wolf. A wanderer, he keeps his life simple and carefree—until an unexpected encounter brings him face to face with his tragic past and the woman he’s always adored. Determined to get her out of his blood, he teases her into an easy one-night stand…but one taste will never be enough.
Alexis Huston lived on the fringe of pack life, adopted as a young girl, she’s never been strong enough, fast enough, or pretty enough—except to Mason, but then he left her. Allowed her freedom as an adult with the promise to keep the pack’s secrets, she’s struggled to fit into the ‘human’ world and then a chance meeting turns her hard-won life upside down.
Now she has to decide whether to tell the only wolf she’s ever loved that she’s pregnant or do what she has to do to protect him…keep it secret and run.
When Mason Claybourne scented Alexis Huston he knew she was in trouble. He had to help her, protect her.
It had been a long time 10 years since he was forced to go lone wolf. He knew he couldn’t stay with her, but he could make sure she was safe and back with the wolves that should be protecting her. The thing is there aren’t any. She’s here alone.
There is a history between Alexis and Mason, one that requires a lot of fixing. Some of that was in the explosive way these two come together, which causes the demise of more than one bed and well mattresses and pillows too.
This is a favorite scene after one of those sessions.
Mason broke the headboard and sliced through the mattress. He was also there when she woke in the morning, rousing her in a slow, devastating sensual assault that left her boneless as well as breathless. Their day together—bed shopping included—reminded her of all the fun times they’d spent as teens—though they’d hardly shopped then. The familiarity lay in the ease with which they fell into familiar routines and how comfortable he was to be around.
The bed he purchased included a hardened steel frame and it had to weigh a ton. But he handled the delivery, loading it in his truck rather than allowing others into her place. He also replaced the doorknob he’d broken and the faceplate. After he’d put the new bed together, he enticed her into christening it. Spent and drifting, she sprawled atop him, her cheek pressed to his shoulder. White feathers floated down around them and she began to laugh. “Well, the bed survived, but you managed to kill my last pillow.”
“What is your fascination with birds?” The rumble of his voice accompanied by his heartbeat had her curling her toes. She wanted to make love to him all over again, which didn’t seem possible—she could barely move.
“I like soft things,” she smiled, then pressed a kiss to his chest. No, she definitely didn’t want to move. “And hard ones. If I have to pick a pillow, then I pick you.”
