Bonded: prequel to The Mating
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.

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.
