Forged Alliances Excerpt

Dax Williams sauntered toward her with feline grace, his eyes simmering with amusement the second they locked gazes. His jeans hung low on his hips, and his white tee might as well have been plastic-wrapped on, providing a clear reminder of the chiseled six-pack she’d seen last night.

“They’ve got some great kibble on the menu here,” he drawled, eliciting a growl from Jeremiah. Her blood ignited. The man might be as pretty as a picture, but his smart-ass mouth ruined the package. Sierra contained her annoyance, offering a sweet smile while hiding her fangs.

“How considerate,” she murmured.

His brows furrowed in confusion. If he wanted to play power games, now that her temper had cooled and she tapped into a clear perspective, he didn’t stand a chance. She clapped a hand on Jeremiah’s shoulder. He had bared his teeth, two steps away from wolfing out around more than a couple of humans in front of this quaint diner. Perfect recipe for freaking out the norms. Their eyes met, and she stared him down with her patented alpha look. Sure, her wolf paced restlessly inside her, desperate to establish dominance with the newcomer, but Sierra steered this ship for a reason.

“Lest you think I came for witty banter,” Dax said as he made his way to the door and held it open for Jeremiah with a flourish. Jer folded his arms over his chest, refusing to budge. Save me from fragile male egos. Dax’s eyes glittered with unspent amusement, clarifying that the gesture was meant as a taunt.

“Streaky, he’s not asking you to marry him, just holding the door,” Sierra said, giving Jer a shove hard enough to send him stumbling. She followed through, shooting a glare at Dax as she passed. “And you’re no better. Taunting people you want help from is poor form. Shape up.”

Dax’s gaze darkened, and for a moment she wasn’t sure if they headed for a brawl right in the parking lot. Not uncommon with her kind. His breath hitched for a half second, but as sudden as a swerving car, he flashed her a hot-as-hell smile.

“Yes, ma’am,” he said, following them into the diner.

Sierra Kanoska fought hard for her position as wolf alpha of the Red Rock pack, and intruders in her territory receive the full brunt of what her claws, fangs, and smarts can accomplish. So when Dax Williams, de facto alpha of the Silver Springs pack, pays an unwelcome visit, Sierra’s ready to toss him out. However, the man’s in a tough spot. The pack elders sabotaged his fight for alpha against his brother, driving him from his lands. Sierra hates underhanded moves like that, so she agrees on an alliance.

As they work together, she witnesses an alpha who wants to do right by his pack, not just the cocky wiseass she first met. Their growing attraction blazes hot, but the moment she and Dax lock lips, a mating bond emerges. Sierra sure as hell isn’t ready to share that intimate connection with a stranger, and the thought of forever sends Dax running.

Before they can talk, the Tribe commanding the East Coast shifters arrives to settle the dispute. Dax and his brother’s punishment for their pack’s civil war is a free-for-all on their lands. Not only does he have to defeat his brother, but any challenger in the region. Despite Dax and Sierra’s initial resistance, his wily charm relaxes her control-freak tendencies while her steadfast support bolsters his strength. Yet every new opponent places their newfound relationship under siege–one misstep, one wrong blow in the ring, and Dax could leave in a bodybag.

Weekly Word Count #119

Word Count: 10,191

What story I’m currently working on: I keep my promises! Forged Decisions is complete!! I started really pounding out the wordage on that one, and it’s already out with beta readers now! So after that crazy haul, I slowed down for a little and spent time getting back into the Musketeer Pirate story, and I finally hit 10k! Baby steps on that one–it’s going to have so much complex plotting that it’s difficult to pin down directions.

What I’m editing/marketing: Forged Alliances is releasing next Tuesday! Continuing the awesome news front, I just signed a contract for Of Tinkers and Technomancers with After Glows Publishing! I’m finished the rewrite of A Reflection of Ice and have it out with beta readers, so once I get critiques back, I’ll be doing the final two edits on this and then submit it by the end of the month! Also on the editing front, my content edits for Captured Memories are complete! Onto lines!

Teaser of the week:

Liv was willing to go to war beside him, to descend into the trenches and fight with him against those demons, and hell on earth if that didn_t mean everything.

Line of the week:

“And the largest crew of Dims to sail the seas,” Lorne called from his seat, brandishing his pistol. Fiona’s groan slipped from her throat unbidden. The moment the slur left Lorne’s lips, silence smeared through this tavern like fresh paint. Fiona resisted the urge to strangle her friend as every eye in the bar turned to them. With the Summit for human rights on the horizon in this magic-hating kingdom, only the boldest or stupidest adepts would call attention to themselves.

Lorne had always been both.
