 Bonded: prequel to The Mating

(2012)

 

“Brandi wasn’t as sweet as her name might imply.  Instead she was as fiery as her hair and about as easy take as gargling broken glass.  Real brandy might have slid down his throat and filled his belly with comforting warmth, but Brandi Johansson set him afire like no other female ever had.”

 

Reno’s a tough Enforcer for Lycan Link who finds himself drawn to Brandi but duty rules his life.  Brandi, just on the edge of starting her career as a Disaster Control officer, falls for Reno at first sight, but are they really meant to be?  Is it love or lust and does it really even matter?  Enforcers and DCs don't get along...unless fate forces them to. Bonded precedes The Mating in the Law of the Lycans timeline.

 

Excerpt:

A sense of homecoming filled him as he wrapped his arms around her body, pulling her close. Damn but it felt good to be with her again. His wolf murmured in delight and without thinking he dipped his head and nuzzled her neck, gently biting the tender skin, barely able to restrain himself from breaking the surface.


She stiffened at the love nip, then seemed to melt into him, her hands clutching his shoulders, a sigh of delight escaping her lips. He inhaled deeply taking in her scent, absorbing the warmth and softness of her body. God, how had he managed to stay away from her for so long? Contentment filled him and he’d have stood there for the rest of the afternoon, just holding her, if she’d allowed him

However, within moments, she began to move, pushing herself away from him. “It’s good to see you but—”

He silenced her with a quick kiss, dipping his tongue into her mouth before she was even aware of what was happening. So sweet, he thought as he explored the warm cavern. Threading his fingers through her hair, he held her head in place while sweeping his other hand over her back to cup her delightfully curved rear. Arousal hit him hard and he pressed closer, making her aware of his need.

She broke the kiss and gasped, staring up at him with wide eyes, her fingers splayed across his chest.

Author’s note:

This book was supposed to be a short novella; a means of providing a back story for Damien who you met near the end of The Finding.  But Reno (the main male character in this book) was rather...forceful.  No meagre supporting character roles for him, thank you very much!

 Yes, Reno demanded a full length novel and a deeper story line than I'd originally planned.  You see, he's tackling some touchy issues dealing with preconceptions and prejudices both subtle and obvious...  Well, you'll understand as you read the book.

 My inspiration for Reno was the gorgeous actor Alex O'Loughlin. You can check out pictures that show Alex in what I call his “Reno look" in my Facebook photo album http://tinyurl.com/hze6bkt
