To truly have her, he must free her from her dark secret….
Enforcer Erin Flynn has dedicated her life to protecting her kind. But keeping her heart safe from Noah Campbell, the smoking-hot shifter who saved her life last year, is more difficult. The deadly beauty would love to sink into his arms and become his mate, but she knows she can’t—he must never know about her dark past.
When Erin is sent to investigate the disappearances of pregnant shifters in New Orleans, Erin and Noah find themselves involved in a mystery more sinister than anyone expected. And as Erin delves further into the crimes, chilling information about her own past is revealed. The people who wanted her dead in the first place are trying to finish the job, and Noah wants nothing more than to shield her from harm. But can Erin truly trust Noah and let him see the wounded beast she’s hidden for so long?
Erin tried to shift against her seat inconspicuously as she tore down LaSalle Street in her Challenger. The ache between her legs was growing and becoming more uncomfortable. Even though Noah had brought her to orgasm a few minutes earlier, it wasn’t enough. Not even close. She wanted all of him and now that her inner wolf had been woken up, she refused to be locked down again. Her animal wanted out to play and she couldn’t understand why Erin was still clothed and not riding the insanely sexy shifter only inches away until they were both sweaty and sated. An edginess had taken root inside her and it was all his fault.
“How are you feeling?” Noah’s words were practically a purr. No doubt he could scent her growing hunger for him.
The scent of her need was almost suffocating her in the enclosed space of her car so there was no way he could miss it either. The only thing that made her feel a little better was that his spicy arousal was just as potent as hers. “Don’t be smug. It’s not attractive.”
“Oh, I think you find me very attractive. And right now you’re wondering how much better my cock will feel than my fingers as I’m thrusting into you.” Erin nearly choked at his words. Damn him, it was true. He would feel amazing. She just knew it.
She and Noah joked around all the time and despite that he’d just brought her to orgasm he’d never talked to her like that. It was arousing and erotic and completely disconcerting. Her face—and much lower places—warmed instantly, but she didn’t respond. Doing so would be insanity and just encourage him. And since she’d already met her quota of crazy actions for the day, no thank you.
“Nothing to say?” he purred again, sounding so smug he might as well be feline.
She bit back a response, knowing anything she said would bite her in the ass later. What had happened to Noah? It was like a switch had been flipped and he was . . . oh no. No, no, no. He might have made that first move but she’d let him in and now he’d be pursuing her like there was no tomorrow. She might as well have hung a neon sign around her neck that said claim me.
It was his inner wolf taking over, she knew that. The beast had been let out, much like her own inner wolf, and it wouldn’t stop until it claimed her as his mate. And double damn him, she knew he’d never settle for just a mate. He would want to eventually bond and have kids and the whole package. “Noah, I’m not good for you so keep your wolf leashed.”
He laughed, the seductive sound wrapping around her and sending more heat to the pulsing ache between her legs. God, he was so fucking alpha, but she sometimes forgot just how much. Ever since he’d found her near death he’d been walking around on eggshells, being extra sensitive with her. Until roughly a couple of months when he’d seen her fight, and then they’d shared their first kiss. Then he’d started to get more aggressive in his pursuit of her and now he’d apparently taken off the gloves and was coming after her hard.
