Excerpt – Chapter 6
|| ”What are you grinning about?” Decebel growled, knowing he wasn’t going to like the answer.
”I think it’s time we break up their girls’ night out. Preferably before Jen falls off the bar,” Fane told him. Though he tried, he couldn’t hide the teasing laughter in his eyes as he watched his words penetrate Decebel’s mind.
”She’s in a bar?”
”Oh, she’ll do you one better than that, Beta.” Fane chuckled. “She’s on a bar. As in dancing on a bar. The patrons are quite taken with her.”
Decebel was out of his seat and ripping the door open before Fane could finish his sentence.
”Did you have taunt him?” Vasile scolded.
Fane shrugged. “Seeing the steely, calm Beta all riled is too much to pass up, Alpha.”
Vasile tried to hide his smile as he shook his head at his only son. “Fine, but hurry up and go with him or he’ll tear the damn bar apart, and I don’t have the time or energy to deal with that mess.”
”As you say.” Fane winked at his father.
”Luna, I’m giving you fair warning. Your little adventure has been found out by the subject of your taunting. Do you think it wise, my love, to bait a dominant male?”
Fane could feel her surprise as she heard his voice in her mind. He smiled. He loved surprising her – it was a nice change of pace since he was usually the one being surprised.
”Crap. Is he on his way here?” Fane heard the anxiety in her voice.
”Hell is on his heels, love.”
”You are enjoying this entirely too much, White Fang.”
”Aw. Now, Jacquelyn, that is no way to speak to your mate.” Fane couldn’t cover his laughter.
”Just remember, wolf-man, I will follow through with my threat to have that dog house built for you. Now how long?”
”You wound me with your words, Luna.”
”Fane, I’m not playing with you. How long till the brooding fur ball arrives?”
Fane had neglected to tell Jacquelyn that he and Decebel had been driving the whole time they’d been conversing. The bar was only five minutes from the mansion. He smiled to himself as he and Decebel climbed out of the Hummer.
Fane pulled open the door to the bar. He took in the scene and nearly lost his composure at the sight.
”You’re looking stunning, Luna, if not a little under-clothed.” Fane watched as Jacquelyn’s eyes, big as saucers, met his across the bar. He grinned wickedly, raising his eyebrows as he whispered in her mind.
The Grey Wolves Series
Jaque Pierce was just an ordinary 17 year old girl getting ready to start her senior year in high school in Coldspring, Texas. When a mysterious foreign exchange student from Romania moves in across the street, Jacque and her two best friends, Sally and Jen, don’t realize the last two weeks of their summer was going to get a lot more interesting. From the moment Jacque sets eyes on Fane she feels an instant connection, a pull like a moth to a flame. Little does she know that the flame she is drawn to is actually a Canis lupis, werewolf, and she just happens to be his mate; the other half of his soul. The problem is Fane is not the only wolf in Coldspring, Texas. Just as Fane and Jacque are getting to know each other, another wolf steps out to try and claim Jacque as his mate. Fane will now have to fight for the right to complete the mating bond, something that is his right by birth but is being denied him by a crazed Alpha. Will the love Fane has for Jacque be enough to give him the strength to defeat his enemy, will Jacque accept that she is Fane’s mate and complete the bond between them?
With the challenge complete and the corrupt Alpha of Coldspring defeated Fane is now free to complete the mate bond with Jacque and perform the Blood Rites. Although the challenge is done, the affects are far reaching. Once it is known that Vasile, one of the strongest Alphas in the world is in America, specifically Coldspring, TX, there is one Alpha who cannot over look the significance of this. An Alpha who happens to share Jacque’s DNA, but is this the one she needs to fear?
With her mom driving and her two best friends, Jen and Sally in tow, Jacque sets off for her happily ever after. She will soon realize a plan has been put in motion that will change her course and possibly tear her from Fane’s grasp forever. It will take a wolf pack, her mother’s love, her two best friend’s unrelenting determination, her own will to survive and the undying love of her mate to bring her home. The question remains, if she fights, if she endures, who will she be, what will be left once she is back in her mates arms?
Jennifer Adams, best friend to Jacque Pierce and Sally Morgan, spicy, out spoken, a little crazy and human…or so she thought. Jen has just found out that human DNA is not the only thing that resides in her veins, she happens to share that little pesky werewolf gene, although it isn’t more than just a drop. Now that she and her friends are living in Romania with Fane’s pack, she is also oh so conveniently stuck with the object of her affection, the fur ball Decebel.
Drawn to each other by something they don’t understand Jen finds herself frustrated by the lack of mating signs between her and said fur ball. Not only is she dealing with that not so un-frustrating problem, she now has been informed that because of that little drop of werewolf blood in her she is now required to attended a multi-pack gathering for un-mated wolves. This type of gathering hasn’t taken place in over a century but with a shortage of females among the werewolf population the males are getting worried they won’t ever find their true mates.
Meanwhile Decebel struggles with the emotions he is feeling towards Jen. He tries to keep his distance but there is just something about the mouthy blonde that keeps him coming back for more of her verbal abuse that he just can’t seem to get enough of…go figure.
