Vegas Mates, Book 3
Council threats and Renata’s deadly attack leave the Vegas pack scrambling to regroup…
Heartbroken over the death of her fiancé and tortured by a voice in her mind that’s haunted her since childhood, Sarah McLain learns her true ancestry after attending her best friend Margaret’s wedding. Can the pack save Sarah from the darkness that threatens to overwhelm her? Or will the wolf inside drive her over the edge before they can show her being a supernatural being is a good thing?
Chris Michaels is in charge of training the new latent werewolves at the O’Hearn mountain inn, now known as Woodhaven. His focus is tested when he finds out the beautiful but sad redhead, Sarah McLain, is his trainee. The connection he feels to her is strong but not magickal, and his wolf claims it foolish to listen to his human instincts. Can Chris heal her broken heart in time, or will he lose the woman he knows is perfect for him.
Stop #8 – Excerpt
Bonnie looked up at him and narrowed her eyes. Suddenly he felt very underdressed.
“Go put a shirt on, young man, and I’ll fix you a plate.”
It wasn’t a request. The little woman was ordering him around as if she were his mother.
“You heard her, Chris,” a much more familiar voice snapped from the other side of the kitchen.
“Shi— Mom!” What’s wrong with me today? I’m off my game. “I’m going.” He held up his hands in surrender and whirled, ducking back through the doorway and into the dining room.
Sarah was still at her table, staring out the window. She didn’t seem to notice him at first, but then she turned her head, and her gaze followed him across the room.
“No shirt, no service?”
He stopped, a laugh rolled up from his chest. “Yes.”
A grin spread across her face, and he was sure his heart stopped at least for a few seconds. He wanted to join her at the table, but fear of the mothers in the kitchen kept his feet planted firmly where they were.
“I’ll be back in a minute. Will you still be here? I’d like to eat with you.”
She held up her coffee cup. “Not going anywhere.”
He hurried from the room and up the main set of stairs at the front of the inn.
“You shouldn’t be pursuing her,” his wolf growled. “She’s human.”
Not for long.
“You can’t tell if she’s a mate match until after she turns.”
Sometimes even humans have instincts. Plus, a little flirting never hurt anyone.
“She’s masking her pain. You need to be mindful,” his wolf warned.
His wolf snorted but didn’t respond.
