Excerpt –

Amy hummed along to the Christmas music as she worked the wire and beads in her hand. She hated the overzealous songs, but her mind seemed to want to sing along with them anyway. Whatever. She’d be glad when the holiday was over. Christmas was the worst holiday ever. She loved winter though, snow especially.

As if to mock her, the air conditioning blew down on her, sending a cold chill zipping up her spine. At least she could pretend it was winter while in the store. Outside it was in the eighties. Ten years in Hawaii and she still couldn’t get used to the winters—or lack thereof.

“Are you sure you don’t mind locking up?” Celia asked as she strode by, slipping her purse onto her shoulder.

“Yeah. I’m fine,” Amy said, shooing her friend away.

“You know you can come to the ceremony, right?” Celia offered for the billionth time. “Everyone on the island will be there. I’m sure no one will notice if we close an hour early.”

Amy shook her head. “Thanks, but no.”

Celia sighed and came to the counter, leaning over the glass. She reached out and placed a warm hand on top of Amy’s. “You should get out and have fun,” she coaxed. “It’s Christmas and what better way to start off the holiday than watching the tree lighting ceremony. I’m going to a party afterwards, too. When’s the last time you let loose?”

Amy licked her lips and continued to work on the bracelet. She didn’t let loose—ever. Crowds bothered her. Christmas was a horrible reminder of all the bad things that had happened to her. Put the two together and you had a bad combination. “You know that’s not my thing.” God love Celia, but the two of them couldn’t be any more different if they tried.

Celia’s shoulders sagged and she let out an exasperated breath. “If you change your mind…” she trailed off.

“I’ll call,” she promised. Not that she was going to change her mind. She wouldn’t be caught dead in that chaos.

“Everyone is going to be there, including Mason and Rhea,” Celia tried again.

Amy quirked her brow at the mention of her brother, but continued to work on her beading. Mason always grumbled about going to the Christmas functions, but he would do anything to appease his wife and mate, Rhea.

Celia groaned and took a step back. “Still can’t change your mind, huh?”

Amy chuckled and shook her head. Nothing anyone said could make her go to the Christmas tree ceremony. She didn’t care if all of Honolulu was there. Solitude in the safety of the shop sounded much more appealing.

Celia let out another dramatic huff. “I’ll see you in the morning,” she said defeated.

“Be safe,” Amy said quietly, glancing up at her friend for the first time. Celia was a werewolf like Amy and the rest of their family, but Celia was too careless sometimes.

“I always am.” She grinned as she walked out the door.

The bell chimed loudly, sending a series of dings chirping through the store. Amy stared at the glass opening as it gently slipped closed. Her heart ached as Celia drove off and she closed her eyes. It’d been ten years. She loved that her friend and family hadn’t given up on her, but in some ways she wished they would. She didn’t trust people. The less she was around them the better. At least she wouldn’t have to worry about anyone coming into the shop tonight. The entire city would be downtown. She could work in peace.

Amy returned to her beading. It was one of the only things that calmed her. Out of all the women, she was the only one that made jewelry. She’d gotten good at it through the years.

Her hand reached for a new bead, but none of the ornate purple and white swirls were atop the glass. She sighed, setting her work down on the counter and walked to the back to find another batch of the pretty beads.

The storage area was dark and the light bulb had burned out months ago. Not that it mattered; she closed her eyes, and called upon her inner wolf. Within seconds her eyes flitted into that of a wolf’s. She peered her eyes open. Everything was illuminated, similar to if she were wearing night vision goggles. Being part wolf had its perks.

She shuffled around boxes until she made her way to the shelf that held her supplies. As she was reaching for her beads, a series of dings tolled through the shop. Crap. Who was here?

A series of laughs rung through the front of the store as a few men joked with each other.

“Merry Christmas to us, guys,” a gruff voice called out.

“I bet we can sell this stuff quickly and make a pretty penny, too,” another announced.

“Check the cash register,” another hollered.

Amy swallowed as a lump formed in her throat. No, no, no. Why was this happening? Christmas—that’s why. Her heart pounded against her ribs and her pulse roared in her ears. The hairs on the back of her neck prickled.

Glass shattered and another series of laughs and hollers tore through the silence. Tears pricked her eyes and she covered her mouth to keep from whimpering. Her feet stumbled over a box, causing her to fall against a shelf. Items crashed to the floor. A box of beads erupted, sending the contents bouncing across the storeroom. She winced at the loud noise. Whoever was out there would’ve heard it. Wolves were supposed to be graceful, not klutzy.

Footsteps pounded against the carpet as a few of the intruders flocked to the back. They’re coming. Think. She had to do something. Her limbs were rubbery, refusing to move, and her brain seemed to have stopped working. Like a deer in headlights, she stood, rooted in her spot.

“Well, what do we have here,” a man chuckled as he shone a flashlight in her direction.

As Amy took a step back, her foot slipped out from under her, landing on beads. Her legs flew over her head and she gasped as the wind rushed out of her lungs as her back flopped to the ground. Her head bashed against a shelf and dots blurred her vision. Stay awake. Don’t pass out. God only knows what they’ll do.

Her mishap caused the men to laugh harder. They jogged toward her. Amy flailed, quickly hopping to her feet. Fight back. Don’t let them touch you. Her skin crawled just thinking about their grimy fingers on her flesh.

She snarled, using her quick reflexes to shove the first man away from her. He reeled back, falling on his ass. Even if her brain was fuzzy, at least her reflexes were kicking in. She knew how to fight all too well. Mason had made sure she could defend herself. There was no reason for her to act like a flake. Terror did funny things to people though. She needed to focus.

Her eyes were still shifted, giving her an advantage. She kicked out with her left foot, catching one of her attacker’s in the jaw. Take that!

“Enough,” a man yelled. A click sounded and Amy froze as a silver barrel was leveled at her face.

This close, it was unlikely he’d miss and he was too far away for her to charge him, not without him firing first. She’d never been shot before and would like to keep it that way.

“Aren’t you a spry thing?” the man said, cocking his head at her. “What’s wrong with your eyes?”

Amy gritted her teeth. Her wolf’s eyes were most likely glowing. Humans didn’t know shifters existed. It was a secret. One she needed to keep.

“Get her and bring her out front,” the man holding the gun instructed to the two she’d attacked.

The two men grumbled beneath their breath as they warily approached her. Amy bit her lip to keep from crying out as the man she’d pushed wrapped an arm around her. She shivered as his beer breath assaulted her sensitive nose. Nausea rolled in her belly and she closed her eyes. Just do what they say until you get an opportunity to fight back.

“Move, bitch,” he instructed, thrusting her forward.

The man she’d kicked reached out, snatching her long, wavy, dirty blonde locks in his hand and wrenching her to him. “You are going to pay for this,” he sneered as he pointed to his bloodied lip.

Amy’s body tensed. How was she going to pay for this? She didn’t want to wait and find out.

Smack! Pain ripped through the side of her face and Amy cried out at the unexpected assault.

“Where is the safe?” the man holding the gun snapped.

Amy blinked. How did he get so close to me? Damn it, she needed to pay better attention. Breathe in and out. Don’t let them fluster you.

Another slap sent her head whirling to the side. Coppery warmth flooded her mouth and she spat blood at the man holding the gun.

The cool metal of the gun pressed against her forehead as the man used his free hand to swipe away the blood spattered across his face. “The safe,” he repeated.

Money wasn’t worth dying over. Maybe they’d take the money and products and leave. She could only hope. “In the office, behind the painting,” she lisped. There wasn’t really anything in there. Catalina had made a trip to the bank before she left for the day. “Just take it and go.”

“She’s seen our faces,” the man holding her acknowledged. His nasty breath puffed against her neck and she shivered, trying to shrink away from him.

“I won’t say anything. I promise,” she said, squeezing her eyes shut.

“That so?” the man in front of her asked as he trailed the gun down to her temple, across her cheek, and rested it on the tip of her chin.

Amy swallowed, unable to open her eyes. “Yes.”

“Such a pretty face,” the man said quietly. “Have your fun with her, then kill her,” he told his counterparts.

Amy’s eyes flew open as a hand groped her right breast. God no! Anything, but that. Panic and anger surged through her. She wouldn’t be a victim again. The man with the gun turned toward the office. Fight back! Now! Her nails lengthened into claws without her calling upon her wolf. She drove her hand back and jammed them into the man’s thigh, raking them up.

He howled, pinching her breast harder. Amy wiggled in his grasp as the gun-toting maniac whirled back to her. His finger curled tighter around the trigger as she flailed, desperate to get free of her captor.

A loud crackle and scream ripped through the air. Oh crap, this was it.

The Claiming by Lashell Collins

Xander

Salvador knows he’s destined to be Alpha of the Woods Canyon Pack. He’s

felt it in his soul his entire life, even through the taunting and

ridicule he’s suffered over the disgrace of how his parents died. But

the Claiming is drawing near. The ancient, and some say barbaric

practice, where the strong and worthy males battle for the right to be

Big Dog often ends in death. And in order to join the battle and step

into his destiny, Xander must first claim the heart of his chosen mate,

Antonia Montgomery.

Toni doesn’t have time for love. She’s driven

to take the reins of her ailing father’s company and prove that she can

keep it on top. Her eccentric aunt’s tales of werewolves and bizarre

mating rituals have no bearing on her life. Until she’s bitten by a wolf

one night and her safe, structured world begins to spiral out of

control. Now, strange things are happening to her body. And the

mysterious, sexy man who always seems to be watching has her wondering

if her aunt’s wild tales could be true.

Savage by Kim Faulks

The

transition from woman to wolf is a right of passage, one hidden

in secrecy and terrified whispers of those females left behind. Not all

who transition live to warn the others, and so the female population in

the packs dwindle. Trapped by the call of the moon and her own body’s

yearning to mate,Mia does the only thing she knows—run. Can she survive

when her scent sends the males in her pack into a frenzy? Or will two

unlikely Alphas show her that both pain and pleasure are two sides of the

same coin?

My feet slipped on the sodden leaves, so I ended up crawling more than I walked. Rough branches slapped my face as I grabbed branch after branch, using fallen trees to pull myself up the steep incline. Fallen trees gave me something to hold onto. My heaving breaths were white in the cold air, burning my chest and stealing the moisture from my mouth. The sirens faded behind me. I dared not turn around. That place was no longer my home. Those I left behind weren’t my people.

 My steps speared through sunken holes, jarring my ankles and knees. I slid backward more distance than I gained as I raced for the peak. A howl ripped through the air. The faint sound brought tears to my eyes.

Not a dog.

A wolf.

Love Like Wings by Amy Lee Burgess

Unbroken by Fiona Steele

A woman who belongs to another. . .

All

her life Emma Pearce only wanted one thing—to live amongst the

ship and tosses her ashore on a remote island, she finds herself torn

between two men, both dark strangers who’ve been battling for centuries.

A wounded king. . .

Davian Belmarric, once king of the

free Pegasi, allowed himself to be imprisoned on a remote island with

his mortal enemy, the leader of the serpent shifters, the Belleros.

sacrifice saved the Pegasi from extinction. But when a shipwrecked young

woman brings news of the greater world, he discovers his sacrifice

might have been in vain . . .

A battle for her heart

never cared about escaping the island or even surviving—until Emma’s

arrival awakens in him a savage need. When his enemy suggests a contest

to end their conflict and decide who will leave and who will stay,

Davian fears his need to win will cost Emma her life.

Not Your Bitch by Angelica Dawson

Zoe doesn’t like being Elliot’s bitch, but doesn’t think she can do better. Linc is bound to prove her wrong, by making her his bitch, his mate.

“You are beautiful.” To make his point, Linc traced her upturned nose.

Zoe’s eyes drooped sleepily. “You’re just saying that.”

His glow went out like a snuffed candle. “You are,” he insisted.

“Yeah, really sexy,” she said with unveiled sarcasm, patting at the ring of flesh around her middle.

Linc ran his fingers down her side, over her belly, under her breasts, and over her breasts. He imagined drawing on her skin, shading all the curves to give them depth.

“I am just saying it,” he said at last and her eyes went wide in his peripheral vision. He continued to follow his finger, dark, on her pale marble skin. “I’m saying it without promises, without strings, without my own reasons. Just saying it.”

Ngyong’s Tiger by Melissa Bell

Ngyong

is a secret part of Japanese Folk Law – He is the last of his line,and

his family’s tales of the ‘Legend of the Fox’ will die along with him.

He is resolved in his decision to never take a mate.

Savannah is

Ngyong’s new neighbor, she’s beautiful, curvy in all the right places and

she likes what she sees on the other side of the fence. She has her own

secrets, ones that could get them both killed.

It’s impossible to outrun your fate, especially when it’s all claws and Legend.

(Five Brothers Series Spin-Off)

Changeling’s Revenge by DJ Shaw

Peyton Milne

had grown up feeling like she was different from everyone else.

She’d always been able to do things, sense things, others couldn’t. When

she turned twenty, her mother told her something every person fears; she

wasn’t a Milne and never had been. She wasn’t even human. She was Fae; a

Changeling – the only good news, a unique type since she’d survived to

adulthood.Now Peyton is on a mission to find her Fae family and

find out why she was left out in the human world to die. And for that she

was going to need some help. Enter Basil, a shifter with a chip on his

shoulder and banishment under his belt.With this kind of fire-power

backing her, she hoped her family had a really good answer to her question.

Peyton stood and positioned herself between the two men when she saw Basil tense like he was getting ready to pounce on their visitor, “Excuse me, gentlemen. Remember me?”

The men looked at her, making her feel overexposed, “Yeah, hi. While I’m sure you boys would like nothing better than to beat the shit out of each other, Basil here and I were just leaving so that we could discuss some important, and rather delicate, business in private. Besides that, I happen to like this establishment and would prefer not to frighten the owners and patrons. How about we take this outside?”
