Witches of Rose Lake, Book 3
I’ve dreaded my sister’s telepathic warning since the day she left me in the care of the Carter Moon Pack.
They’re coming for you.
Now, I’m an animal to be hunted down. All because the Council fears the power that runs in my veins.
Because I’m a hybrid witch and wolf. It doesn’t matter that father is a councilman.
The council’s hunters are closing in, and I’m running out of options. When I stand my ground and face them, I’m no match for the four alpha males that flood my senses with desires too strong to ignore.
I have a choice to make.
Stay and fight, or keep running.
“You still lied.” His blue eyes darkened.
“If I told you, would you have let me continue to work for Sunshine Lives?” I raised my brows.
A storm brewed in his depths. Flashes of light arced through his blue irises. No, he wouldn’t let me work with Lucian and the others. It was too risky. “I can’t sit around to do nothing. There are hybrids that need our help. Innocent lives are being destroyed because of Harrison’s fear and greed. You saw the female and her son that came in today. She wasn’t the first one to show up beaten. And she’s not going to be the last until we stop Harrison.”
My anger rose, stirring the magick in my blood to the surface. Eli sucked in a breath but didn’t release me. I knew he felt the hum of my power like an electric current over my skin. “Someone needs to help them!”
My voice broke and tears blurred my vision. So many emotions had been riding me since seeing Sofia and her son, beaten and scared.
Eli drew me to him ad wrapped his arms around me. I fisted my hands in his T-shirt and buried my face into it. The tension left his body. “I understand your need to protect them. I just wish you trusted me enough to tell me.”
He thought I didn’t trust him? I lifted my gaze to his and bunched my brows. “I do trust you. You’re my sentry, my security.”
Ouch. That was a hit in the gut. “I didn’t want David and Tory to know. They’d make me stop or kick me out of the Pack.” I shuddered at the last thought. Losing the connection to the Pack would hurt my wolf. “Plus the less they knew about Sunshine Lives the safer it was for them and the Pack.”
Eli stared into my eyes for serval long moments before he lowered his head. Without a word, he crushed his mouth to mine. I moaned and leaned into the kiss. Desire and pleasure swirled from within, making me ache all over. The urge to claim him was too strong. It was like we were already connected on a deeper level than the Pack bond. The feeling we were meant to be together churned in my soul.
My intuition nagged at me to claim him as well as my wolf. Like they were trying to tell me my life could depend on being connected to him.
He broke the kiss and trailed his lips down my jaw to my throat. When his teeth scraped against my flesh, my body trembled and I let out a moan. Eli lifted his head and locked gazes with me. “You’re mine.”
Oh gods. Yes! “Then do something about it.”
