Wolf In Winter Clothing by Heather Long
Roland James waited a long time to return to the Black Hills. After Seth, his best friend, left—was driven away—and Seth’s family vanished in the night, he had no reason to stay. Only one purpose remained for him—to build his strength and his skills until he could kill the men responsible for their loss. When word reaches him about Magnum’s demise and Drew’s ascension, he rushes home. Though Drew welcomes him and the town seems to be thriving with a Winter Solstice Run in the offing, Roland can’t celebrate. Not all of his enemies are dead. One—the worst—still lives.
Professor Claudia Donovan has spent a great deal of time and effort to locate one of her colleagues. Then she receives an odd message telling her to meet someone about the woman she’s been trying to find in the middle of nowhere in South Dakota. Taking the first flight and renting a car, she waits at the designated spot. A chance meeting and an even riskier hookup for her TA leaves her with more questions than answers. When she ends up in Los Lobos no one wants to answer her questions.
The last thing Roland expects when he lures the human to the Black Hills is to delight in her scent, her temper, and her cutting tongue. He needs the pawn to distract Ryker because the Enforcer has a weakness. Take away his mate, and Roland can kill him once and for all. Maybe his plan makes Roland the bad guy, but he can live with that. The only problem he has is his need for revenge may cost him Claudia….
Guarding His Heart by Carolyn Spear
Wiccan Haus is a place of healing and relaxation. Or so Cassidy Sinclair’s been told. All she knows is it’s got to be better than the psych ward where she’d been held since she told authorities what she saw. PTSD-induced hallucinations from the attack on her school, they say. From the brush with imminent death, saved by her student’s bodyguard who appeared out of thin air and died in her arms. The only person who believes her account is the boy’s father who arranges her one-week stay at an exclusive holistic healing spa called the Wiccan Haus off the coast of Maine.
Cassidy never understood the need for Allan Branson’s bodyguard but she couldn’t ignore the attraction. Even though she never made any advances to get to know the epitome of tall, dark, and silent better, he’d invaded her thoughts and heart with his quiet watchful care of his charge. A loner, he blended in with his surroundings, yet to her, he stood out among all other men. Without exchanging words, she’d felt a strong connection, something almost fated. But now he is dead.
When Trevor appears before her on the island, she grasps at the second chance. He reels her close then pushes her away. Finally, tired of his mixed messages, she takes control and lures him into a seductive trap.
The morning light shines a light on their differences and Trevor reconsiders his choice to get personal with his newest charge. He refuses to let his emotions cloud his professional judgment to protect the woman he realizes he’s meant to be with. Miscommunications and wild conclusions are complicated by the shooter who has Cassidy in his sights.
Will Trevor risk his heart and share his secret or will he lose his fated mate to the shooter he’s already saved her from?
