She’ll never just rollover onto her back
Because she’s the alpha female of the pack
Asserting her dominance at the hint of an attack
Standing her ground, the low vibrations sound
A warning growl, reverberating turn around
Fail to heed now, you’ll be taken down
J is for… Justice and Mating Collides, my neglected WIP novel that I haven’t touched since 3/28/14, so here’s the next (very) short installment hot off the press. Feel free to visit their home page linked above for more.
Without speaking a word Sam took the lead and found her way out of the dense forest covering, stepping out from behind the trees and into an open ravine. Sam tilted her head up toward the towering moon, closed hers eyes as it illuminated her porcelain skin from within and filled her with magical radiance that would give her the strength for the events that were about to unfold in the coming week Dustin wanted to stand there and admire her in the moonlight all night. Yet with reluctance he gently grasped her bent elbow poking out as she rested her hands her hips, and he leaned in close to whisper, “Where to now?” As Sam moved toward the running stream she canted her head from left-to-right, actively listening for sounds of movement and then paused at the rushing waters edge. Dustin knew the moment Sam zeroed in on the source by of the huge smile she flashed just before pointing her finger; accurately upstream in the direction of raccoon family that was frantically working in the night on home improvements. Unexpectedly, Sam crouched down and stepped back lightly upon the twigs and rocks – naturally, as if in wolf form, as she made her way up the stream. Her actions left Dustin smiling like a giddy schoolboy as he followed in her wake.
Detective Dustin Reynolds is heading up an investigation of recent hate crimes committed against women who have been assaulted, raped, and even murdered in his precinct. The frightened townspeople are depending on him to catch the criminal to restore safety and peace in their community. He is guarding a secret from the human society, and living a dual existence as a werewolf and Enforcer for his pack. As the investigation progresses, he gradually becomes aware that he is not tracking a human predator, but rather a rogue werewolf. Forced to change tactics, he averts the police investigation so that he can eliminate the problem under pack law. During the course of the ongoing investigation his world is turned upside down and he fights to control his animal instincts from the moment he encounters Samantha – his fated mate. The problem is Samantha has not matured into her she-wolf and does not know of her legacy, so it’s now up to him to maintain composure and keep his overwhelming primal needs to mate in check as he prepares Samantha for two inevitable life-changing events, transitioning and mating ritual. The rogue gets the upper hand when Samantha is captured, and Dustin goes into rage and will stop at nothing short of death to rescue and avenge his mate. An-all-out wolf hunt ensues to rescue Samantha from the evil wolf-hunter before it’s too late.
