He could feel her hesitation, her doubt. Her presence disappeared from his mind, and he reluctantly let her push him out of hers. She needed time, and for now, he was willing to wait. So long as he could touch her, hold her, protect her, he would wait for her to accept him.
PRE ORDER LINKS – LIVE NOVEMBER 1ST (That’s Friday!!)
One night at a Paris sex club—no-strings, complications or inhibitions—just lots of fantasy sex. But in the morning I forgot the most important rule. Never run from a feline predator—they live for the chase.

Can she resist the dark wolf, or will she succumb to his wildly sexy dark kisses?

cards, and she held it in her hand, somehow hoping that wishing would make it
go away. When she’d moved here two years ago, she’d made it clear to Jack and
every other member of the pack that she didn’t intend to join their little
social group. She preferred to run alone. She hadn’t grown up in a pack, and if
she could, she’d ignore her inner wolf entirely. So what if the sight of a full

Lavender: My parents weren’t
the type to win any awards, but I did learn a few things. Like how to read
lines of code and get through the backdoor of pretty much any site or program.
I also learned about the man my mother had dated when she’d met my dad, someone
who has intrigued me for years. I never thought I’d get the chance to meet him,
until my parents end up dead and I can’t think of anyone else who might be able
to help. I know too much, know my parents’ deaths weren’t an accident, and now
I’ve been targeted. If the infamous Voodoo Tracer can’t help me, then I’m
Reality is so much better than
fantasy, and with one look, I know the reason I haven’t dated is because I was
waiting. For him.
Wire: I never really expected
my past to come knocking at the front gates, nor did I expect it to be in such
a sexy package. Lavender isn’t what I’d call a siren, but with her glasses
perched on her nose, her messy hair, curvy figure, and adorable tees, she’s
exactly what I want and don’t need. A nerdy, geeky, superintelligent woman who
craves me as much as I crave her. So I did what any man would do… I claimed
her. Now she’s mine, and if an enemy from my past thinks he can hurt her, I’d
like to see him try. He might have killed her parents, but I will destroy
anyone who tries to take her from me.
The infamous hacker, or more
accurately cracker, Voodoo Tracer, hadn’t been all that hard to find. My mother
had always said if anything happened to her I should track down the guy she’d
dated before marrying my dad. I’d heard the story a million times, about how
they’d all been friends but she’d fallen for Dad and hurt the guy she’d been
dating. He’d left and never returned. Mom had lost track of him, but it hadn’t
take much digging for me to find his current location, which told me he wasn’t
really hiding. A guy like him didn’t leave a door open unless he wanted someone
to use it.
While my mom and dad were
hackers and worked for a lot of companies, trying to find the weak spots in
their security so the companies could improve them, men like Voodoo Tracer took
advantage of those weak spots to get whatever information they wanted. Mom had
never approved of Voodoo’s need to crack government and banking sites. From
what she’d said, back then, he never took anything vital. He’d mostly done it
because he could. I couldn’t say for certain what he’d been up to lately.
I didn’t really walk either
path, but tended to dabble a bit in both. Like the infamous Voodoo, I mostly
liked to see how far I could get somewhere I shouldn’t be. If I were as nice as
my mom and dad, I’d then turn that information over to the companies so they
could keep other people out. Then again, they weren’t exactly paying me for my
help, so why give it? I wasn’t an angel by any means, but I wasn’t precisely a
devil either. I operated in those murky shades of gray.
I’d known how easy it would be
for some to trace my phone, or the built-in GPS on my car, so I’d left both
behind. The bus hadn’t been the most comfortable option to ride to Alabama, and
I’d paid cash so there wouldn’t be a credit card trail, but now that I was
here, I had to wonder if I’d made a huge mistake. The walk to the Dixie Reapers
compound wasn’t that far, but the place seemed a bit imposing as I approached
the gates. I’d walked what felt like miles of fenceline, although that was
surely not the case. Razor wire topped it, and I had to wonder just what they
were trying to keep out. Or was it more what they wanted to keep in?
The guy standing guard didn’t
seem much older than me, and I noticed the way he scanned me from head to toe.
I probably wasn’t the type of woman who typically came to this sort of place.
My Converse were well-worn, my jeans ripped along my thighs and knees, and I
had on my favorite Dark Crystal T-shirt, which had faded over time. I hadn’t
thought much about my appearance and had tossed my hair up in a messy bun. With
my thick-lensed glasses perched on my nose, I probably looked like I should be
in school right now. If it weren’t for my curves, I’d never pass for my real
“You must be lost,” the man
said, then pointed back behind me. “Town is back that way.”
“I’m not lost.” I hitched my
bag higher on my shoulder. “I’m here to see Voodoo Tracer.”
The man stared and rubbed at
the stubble on his chin. “No one here by that name. So I think you really are
My brow furrowed. I’d assumed
his club would know him by that name. From what little research I’d managed
before taking this trip, I’d learned that some clubs preferred to use a road
name and kept their real names private. If Voodoo followed that belief, this
guy may not know his birth name. It was foolish to think whatever the club
called him would be the same name he went by when he was cracking codes.
“Hang on. I have a picture, but
it’s really old.” I slid the strap off my shoulder and dug in my backpack. I
withdrew the picture of Voodoo with my mom, Seraph, and my dad, Doc Paradox.
I’d stared at this picture a lot over the years. I’d found it shoved into a box
in the top of Mom’s closet a while back. The ginger-haired young man had drawn
my attention. He couldn’t have been older than sixteen or seventeen at the time
it was taken, but even back then he’d been more than just cute. I knew he’d be
my parents’ age now, but I’d often wished I could meet a guy like him.
Showing the picture to the guy,
his eyes went wide.
“Holy shit, is that Wire?” he
“Um. Maybe. I don’t know his
club name. I only know his hacker name.”
The man nodded. “That would be
Wire, then. I’ll have to call him down here. I’m not letting you in uninvited.
You don’t exactly look like the type to party at the clubhouse.”
If that was code for sleep with
random men, then no, I wasn’t. Not even a little. I took a step back as he made
his call and took the time to check out the place behind the fence. There was a
building with Dixie Reapers across the top in neon letters, and a lot of houses
down either side of the road. As I strained to get a better look, I thought I
saw a playground, but that was ridiculous. What type of biker compound had a
playground? The fatigue must be getting to me. It seemed I was now
“He asked who else is in the
picture,” the guy said.
“Tell him Seraph and Doc
Paradox.” I swallowed hard. “They were my parents.”
He relayed the information, and
I hoped that Wire would come and hear me out. If things had really ended as
badly as my mom had said, then he might refuse to see me. She’d not gone into a
lot of detail, just said she’d picked my dad over Voodoo. Knowing my mother,
there was a good chance she’d omitted part of the story. Coming here was a
gamble I’d been willing to take. Whatever Mom and Dad had been into, it had
gotten them killed. Thanks to me nosing around, I now worried that I might meet
the same fate. I didn’t know anything about the man Wire was now, but the kid
who had grown up with my parents had been the type to help those in need, even
if he hadn’t done it the legal way. I was counting on that still being true.
The rumble of a motorcycle
started out faint and then got louder. I saw a rider with copper-colored hair
approaching from down the road and as he came to a stop on the other side of
the gate, my heart flipped, flopped, then took off at a gallop. Holy hell! Mom
had thrown over this guy for my dad? What the hell had she been thinking? He
didn’t even remotely look like a hacker. Nor was he the gangly teen from the
photo I’d brought. Yeah, he’d been handsome back then, but now? Shit. I was
almost certain my panties were getting wet just looking at him. His heather
gray tee stretched tight across his broad chest, and the leather cut just added
to the sex appeal. The denim hugging his thighs was as worn as mine, with a few
well-placed holes, and did nothing to hide how muscular he was, especially for
a geeky computer nerd.
Definitely nothing like my dad.
I’d loved my father, but time hadn’t been kind to him. He’d had lines around
his eyes, and what my mother fondly called his spare tired around the middle,
from long days and nights at the computer. This guy didn’t have that problem. Hell,
he didn’t even look my parents’ age.
Wire swung a leg over his bike
and came closer, removing the sunglasses that had shielded his eyes from me.
Green, and so damn pretty. It was a sin for a man to have eyelashes that long
and thick. Dammit. My nipples were getting stiff. I swallowed hard, wondering
why my body was betraying me. I’d never had a physical response to a guy, even
when I thought they were hot. Until now. The beard covering his jaw made my
fingers itch to reach out and touch it. Would it be coarse or soft? I’d always
had a weak spot for gingers, and he had to be the sexiest one I’d ever seen.
Harley’s other half would probably say those words describe her,
but they also describe her books. When Harley is writing, her motto is the
hotter the better. Off the charts sex, commanding men, and the women who can’t
deny them. If you want men who talk dirty, are sexy as hell, and take what they
want, then you’ve come to the right place.

I ignored his

lockers lined one wall. A wide counter with a lighted mirror behind it ran the
length of the opposite wall. Everything stunk from sweat and cheap perfume. The

fuck the fractions. No matter how you look at it, I’m a demiwolf.
But I look
human. I checked my body in the mirror. Yep, a hot as hell human female stared
back at me. Tacky, but sexy. Nothing says stripper like stiletto platform heels
and a thong that shows off a girl’s booty. I slipped on a white, halter
mini-dress with a drape-neck, an open back, and a side slit. Then I ran my
hands through my curls and gave my lips one last swipe of purple-plum gloss.
It’s so much
easier to call myself human and blend in with the majority. The humans are
clueless. They know we exist, but they believe we keep to our own side of the
tracks. The wolves are a different story. They can smell my lupine pheromones,
but they don’t want me. I’m not pure. Fuck ‘em. At least I can make a living
among the humans. Stripping might be a trashy job, but it pays for the life I’m
trying to live. It’s not the life I want, but it’s all I’ve got. I used to

me he loved me and everything would be okay again. I thought nothing would keep
