Here is an excerpt from my second published book Love Kills (A Redcliffe Novel), when our heroine Jessica Stone returns to the wolves’ lair, against her better judgement.
Danny was looking straight at me with his familiar deep blue, hypnotic eyes. It was as though I was staring at Jack and I struggled to collect myself. His voice was soft, gentle, and even sensual. I was very aware of his hands on my shoulders, the strength in his body.
“They know I am fond of you Jessica,” he said quietly, “I cannot deny that. And I have never invited humans into our lair before. My wolves are mistrustful because the females want to offer themselves as my mate. The position would elevate their individual power and control, and for them it is a desirable role.”
I slowly took in what he was saying.
“So they think that I want to be your mate?” I asked slowly.
“But that’s crazy,” I exclaimed, “I don’t want to be a werewolf! I mean…”
I faltered, embarrassed and Danny smiled.
The Redcliffe novels series follow the adventures of bookshop owner Jessica Stone as she meets a man and falls in love, only to discover the hidden werewolf secrets of her close friends. That includes Simon Bunce, manager of the Ship Inn, who turns out to be lieutenant to the Redcliffe werewolf pack, and lover to the wolf alpha Danny Mason. He fights to protect his master from the ethereal animal familiar who threatens to claim their pack. Who knew the Cornish coast could be so deadly?
