Blurb:

Julianna Morris didn’t know werewolves existed…until she became one.

Hiding her new identity, Julianna returns home only to find her teenage crush, Jeff Lightfoot, is the future Alpha of the Callowwood werewolf pack. She’s unexpectedly chosen as a candidate for the pack’s next Luna, the Alpha female—and Jeff’s mate. This is perfect, except Julianna knows nothing about being a werewolf, and someone’s determined to make her fail the Seven Tests of the Luna.

Jeff Lightfoot lusted after Julianna for years, even when he thought she was human. Now she’s home and all his—if she passes the tests. She’s his True Mate and he wants no one else, but pack politics trump Mother Nature and will prevent him from choosing Julianna if she fails.

For the future she wants, Julianna must pass the tests to become Queen Bitch of Callowwood—or watch Jeff take another woman as his mate.

Excerpt: 

“You agreed to what?” Jeff’s question ripped across the hot expanse of the driveway as Julianna got out of the Camaro.

“An interview. There are some folks interested in our story.” Julianna helped him unload some of the groceries. “They want to know how we got together despite all the obstacles we faced.”

Jeff groaned and slammed the trunk before they climbed the stairs to their apartment above the garage. “Were these ‘folks’ Moon Singers?”

“I don’t know. I talked to them on the phone. I don’t think so.”

“Julianna.” His voice sounded patiently amused. “You do remember the Seven tests of the Luna, right?”

“Don’t patronize me, Jeff.” Her voice dropped into a growl as she kicked the door shut. “It happened last month.”

“Then you should know you can’t talk about anything to do with Moon Singers or the Luna selection to humans.” He sighed and ripped off his shirt to absorb more of the cool air against his skin. Julianna watched with appreciation as his muscles rippled with his movements.

Damn, he’s so sexy! She loved his preference to stride around their home without clothing. Though she’d embraced her Sister wolf, she still had some of the human hang-ups regarding nakedness.

“I wasn’t going to talk about Moon Singers or the Luna challenge. I was going to talk about how I’d always loved you since I was young and kept thinking about you all those years I was gone. And how you waited for me, yadda, yadda, yadda.”

Jeff swung back to her as he shed his shorts. She followed the waistband down, her gazed getting caught on his cock and balls. Oh, he went commando today. Sigh. Naughty dog!

“I didn’t exactly wait for you.” He gave her a cocky grin when she raised her eyes to meet his.

“Rabbit turds!” Julianna turned her back on his sexy body and put away the eggs they’d bought. “You had eighteen years to find a mate, Jeff. You could’ve picked anyone in that time and no one would have batted an eye. But you didn’t. You waited for me.”

He chuckled in her ear just before the heat of his body hit her back and his hands slid inside her shirt. “You’re wearing entirely too many clothes.”

“And you’re trying to change the subject.”

“Is it working?” He laid a soft kiss on the back of her shoulder and cream flooded her core.

“Kinda.”

He growled in arousal and pulled her teeshirt off before kissing her nape and divesting her of her satin bra. “Holy Mother Moon, I love your breasts. They fit perfectly in my hands.”

Your hands are perfect for holding them. He plucked her nipples as he licked the Mating Mark on her right shoulder, sending pleasure ricocheting through her body.

“Jeff, what about the interview?”

He growled again. “What can you tell them, my little Lupine?” He let go of her breasts to unsnap her capris and push them down off her hips. “You can’t mention the tests, the pack, or your relationship to the First Canid. You can talk about your life in Reno and Fresno.” He ground his hardening cock into her ass as his fingers dug into her hips. “But that story doesn’t include me.”

Jeff’s disgust and anger over those intervening years surged along their mating bond and made her Sister growl with warning.

“And you’re life really began when you returned to me.”

Julianna chuckled darkly as she turned in his grip. “How dominantly arrogant of you.”

“I’m your Alpha, my little Lupine. I’m supposed to be dominant.”

She raised her chin and offered a sultry smile. “You’re not Alpha yet. Not until I’ve whelped your first child.” She slid out of his arms and shimmied out of her capris before sauntering toward the bedroom. “And I’m not pregnant yet.”

Jeff grinned around his snarl. “We’ll just have to change that, won’t we?” He lunged for her as she bolted into the bedroom just out of reach.

She squealed in delight as he tackled her to the bed and once again ground his cock into her ass. His weight and strength gave him the upper hand as she fought him until he licked her shoulder again. A sensual shudder ran through her and she melted onto the mattress. He flipped her over and thrust his cock into her slick heat, making her wail with his erotic intrusion. Hot, tight pleasure swamped her senses and her nose filled with the scent of aroused male.

“Now, about that interview, my little lupine.” He moved his hips and licked her shoulder.

Ecstasy cascaded from her core to her head, splintering her thoughts. “What interview?”

“Good answer.”

Jeff turned his attention to making love to her in earnest and the interview discussion disappeared.

Excerpt

The Council of Vampires, somewhere in Beyer West.

 

“You will allow this match to go through.”

Robert Valentine glanced over at his father—head of the Valentine Corporation and leader of his family—feeling bewildered and angry.

“It is just another human family on the verge—”

“I don’t care,” his father yelled at him across the room.

Robert watched his mother flinch. His three brothers turned away, not wanting their father’s wrath directed at them. Robert understood. These were perilous times and his father had no room in his life for arguments. His two sisters were not even allowed access to the Council’s chambers. Instead, old traditions said they must remain outside at all times. One day, Robert wished to banish the old ways and start afresh. Rose and Dawn were equally affected by what happened in this place as he was.

Robert looked at his father. He respected him but there were times when he despised the way in which the man worked. The laws that governed their society were archaic. If they didn’t change their ways soon, Robert believed it would get them all killed.

“What have they offered?” Robert asked, trying to take some interest in the situation, since it was likely to affect his future. At the moment he had no power to change the outcome of tonight’s events.

His father nodded to the guards to open the connecting door leading out to the human visiting room. This allowed humans a place to sit and wait, and offered protection against the abuses of the outside world. Vampire protection, among the humans, was considered a last resort, and only the most degraded and those without pride accepted such an alliance.

A man and a woman entered the great hall. There was nothing fantastic about their appearance. They were dressed in business suits, neat and tidy, and he noted that they appeared to be in their late fifties. One of them carried a folder, which was odd. He assumed the folder contained information, but the Council usually had all the information it needed about human visitors petitioning for help. Beyer West might be a small town, but it was a Valentine-run town. His father was pedantic in his dealings with the human public. Every deal and alliance must be well-documented and sealed away for future reference.

“Mr and Mrs Ford, allow me to introduce my oldest son, Robert Valentine.”

Robert acknowledged the couple, bowing, as was the protocol among his family. He kept his attention on the Council and his own family, though. He knew of the Fords from his own company dealings. They were a prosperous family who should have no need of the Valentines’ services. Only last week Robert had checked the profit margins for the town’s most affluent families. It all seemed rather odd to him.

The couple glanced nervously around them.

“We need the kind of protection you are notorious for offering,” Mrs Ford said.

Robert noticed that Mr Ford was scratching his head and felt like doing the same. How could this company need their help? Last time he checked, Mrs Ford stayed at home with the children while her husband ran the company. Robert couldn’t think of a single reason why they would be at the Council.

“We are not a security company, Mrs Ford.”

“I’m aware of that, but we can meet the price that you have set.” She handed over the file. “We’ve stumbled into some financial difficulty and we would also like assistance with this.”

Robert Valentine opened the folder. An A4 picture of a beautiful young woman stared up at him, an innocent and carefree smile shining from deep within her.

“Pretty girl,” he complimented her.

“That is Sophie. My only daughter and not a girl but a woman of twenty-one,” Mr Ford corrected him.

“With all due respect, Mr Ford, I’m more than five hundred years old. To me, she is a child,” Robert snapped, looking up to glare at the couple.

He couldn’t deny the intrigue he felt about the girl, just from the picture he’d seen, but she was still a child. Her picture and family situation should not concern him or his family. Why did he suddenly have a bad vibe about the whole meeting? Robert glanced back at the file. The innocence clearly expressed in her beautiful features said that this girl hadn’t yet been tainted by the real world. He felt a tug at his heart, knowing that within months the smile would be gone, replaced by a frown and wary features. That was just part of life, but something within him didn’t want this girl to be affected by it.

This meeting was getting odder by the second.

Mr Ford retreated, leaving his wife to deal with the proceedings.

“The protection you offer is that no harm will come to the family, as well as you supplying money to cover our debts?” she asked.

His father nodded.

“The deal would be between Sophie and me,” Robert interrupted. He found that he wished to see the real-life vision of the girl in the photo. To witness her innocence himself and to see her reaction to him. Would she be as affected by him as he was by her?
