I’m not running anymore.
I’ve spent half my life trying to escape a father who wants me dead, and Salrus drew his last card when he took two of my five loves from me. Zane, Wyatt, Trevor, and I will stop at nothing to get Dimitri and Wade back. But we have issues other than my demonic father to deal with.
The Council’s army is growing and they are using ancient relics to make them more powerful and dangerous than the half-breeds they are hunting down.
Half-breeds like me.
Fighting for Them is the second installment of the paranormal, reverse harem, Witches of Rose Lake series.
Since I mentioned book one had a bit of a cliff hanger, I thought I’d just continue the series now.
Reese has mated with Zane and claimed Wyatt and Trevor through their demon marks. However, she had not yet claimed Wade or Dimitri. Salrus took advantage of that and stole them away from her. She is determined to get them back and eliminate Salrus once and for all.
Zane has just returned from an information gathering and scouting mission. What he finds could be the turning point.
“Reese, yelling at the ghosts isn’t going to help.” Trevor’s voice was soft and soothing. It glided over me, calming. He stepped closer and wrapped his arms around me from behind.
I sank into him, loving the comfort and calm he provided me. His clean, earthy scent enveloped me. “I want them home. I want Salrus dead. I want to make the council pay for everything.”
“So do I.” He kissed my neck then my shoulder. “Zane is home and I think he has news.”
I whirled around and framed his face in my hands. His blue eyes lit up at my smile. Worry mixed with a spark of hope flowed from him, touching my awareness. Our marks we got from Salrus bound us together. I strengthened that bond when I claimed his demon mark as my own.
When I met Trevor, he suffered from nightmares that made it impossible for him to relax and sleep from more than a few hours at a time. When I cut off Salrus’s connection to him by claiming Trevor as mine, the nightmares lessened.
Trevor was more relaxed and playful.
I rose up on my toes and kissed him. He tightened his arms around me and thrust his tongue inside, twining it around mine. Pinpricks of desire raced over my skin and in my blood.
Breaking the kiss, I rested my head on his chest. All the while, wanting to race downstairs to my alpha wolf.
Normally, I’d sense Zane, but he shut off his emotions from me by blocking the mating link. It was something only an Alpha could do. Since he was born to be the Alpha of his pack, he possessed the power that came with the job.
Our anger was too intense flowing through the mating bond. I didn’t like to be shut off from him, but I understood why.
“Go. Zane is waiting for us.” Trevor kissed my forehead and released me.
With a smile, I darted out of the room and raced from the third floor to the first. The rumble of male voices coming from the kitchen told me where my guys were.
When I entered the kitchen, Zane and I locked gazes for a moment. His green eyes lit up and his lips lifted in a brilliant smile. I flew into his arms, hugging him tight. He’d been gone for two days, but it felt like a lifetime. He lifted me off the ground and I wrapped my legs around him. “Please tell me you know where they are.”
His arm circled me and tightened the embrace like he was trying to squeeze the air out from between us. The mating link opened and I was flooded with his emotions: Love, lust, anger, and hope.
I buried my nose into his neck and inhaled. While I had Wyatt and Trevor with me the past two days and I loved every moment with them, I missed Zane. My Alpha wolf.
“I found the council’s mansion.” He held me tight against him. I perked up.
He lowered me to my feet right before he sat on one of the chairs at the kitchen table, then opened his arms. I instantly climbed into his lap. The need to be near him, touching him, was too strong. Zane had once told me it’d be that way between us as a bonded pair.
Wow, losing D and Wade had made me clingy. I really needed to get a grip.
