RT Contest Day 6

Last day of the contest! How about a sneak peek at UNCONDITIONAL – the next Cascadia Wolves book?  I’m still finishing it up, but a peek would be fun, no? This is still a bit rough – but it’s one of the first scenes with Josh, the Enforcer from Pacific, and Michelle, his high school sweetheart who’s turned up in Portland searching for her best friend who has disappeared…

He grinned and god help her, he was so ridiculously beautiful she couldn’t stop herself from sucking in a breath.

The grin slid off his features replaced by something else entirely. Hunger. He wiped his mouth and leaned forward. “You feel it too.”

There was no mistaking what he meant. “I need to find my friend.”

“Yes, of course. But you can’t do anything about that right now. Come back to my apartment. You can stay with me while you’re here.”

She shook her head, hard. “Uh uh. That would be a monumentally bad idea.” She bet shifter males were a big ol’ unruly handful and she had limited time and energy. Hell, she’d probably end up getting steamrolled into stuff every time he smiled at her.

“Oh, I disagree. I think it’d be a fabulous idea. You want me, Michelle. As much as I want you. I promise to get you nice and tired so you can sleep.”

“You come with all sorts of complications, Josh. I can’t right now.”

“You still angry with me?”

She sighed. “No. I get it.” And really she didn’t blame him. It had hurt but she’d moved on and he did have a better life here. She cared about him enough to be pleased for that. And he’d been nothing but helpful in the search for Allie.


“But you’re an alpha male and I have too much stuff on my plate to take you on at the moment. I want to check into a hotel, take a long shower and then go to sleep.” After masturbating most likely because he got her all stirred up.
