Book Description:
Power is her greatest
weakness, but love could be her salvation.
Dana Hutson is about to make
one of the toughest decisions of her life: walking away from her twin and her
Pack. But the anger of her late mate’s betrayal burns deep, and her guilt
threatens to push her over the edge. Combined with the magic she was born with
intensifying to a lethal level, she has no choice but to leave Whiskey Hollow
in search of her inner peace. But what she finds could be more than she
bargained for.
Cooper Reed will do anything
to keep his sister and adopted daughter safe from the demented rogue Alpha of
the Bloodrose Creek Pack. That includes killing anyone who threatens his family
and going on the run. He is willing to do whatever it takes. He isn’t prepared
to find his mate in the midst of the chaos.
When even more secrets and
dangers come to light, Dana and Cooper must band together to stop the rogue and
his minions before all is lost. But will their bond be enough to harness the
power needed to defeat such a foe?


Excerpt:

Pain arched across her skull, piercing every nerve ending. Dana growled,
holding her head in her hands. With deep, calming breaths, she gathered the
built-up magic that ran in her veins, the power that grew stronger every day.
Dreams of destruction and loss had interrupted her sleep over the last
month. With only a few hours of rest a day, she feared the control she tried
desperately to maintain would slip. She could kill her brother, then the Pack.
Ross did this to us. Her wolf’s words cut through the hammering ache in
her skull.
Ross wasn’t their true mate. The mating had been a political arrangement
between his Pack and hers, to merge two small groups of wolves together. The
first few years had been good, and she’d actually believed she could grow to
love him. She’d trusted him to be the strong Alpha that her father was.
However, when the Alpha power transferred to Ross from her father,
everything changed. As Ross’s mate, the Pack magic mixed with the power Dana
been born with. The power the witch’s Coven, her great-aunt’s Coven, believed
was a gift from the goddess, Diana.
Ross became drunk on the magic and wanted more. He went from a
compassionate wolf to a power-hungry, abusive mate. He distorted her Pack, and
broke her in ways she wasn’t sure could be fixed.
She’d learned to hide the witch’s power from him, containing it deep
within her soul. But that power had only grown, and now, it wanted out.
“You don’t have to go.”
Dana squeezed her eyes shut and willed away the ache in her head and her
chest. Her twin brother’s soft plea hurt on so many levels. In all of their
hundred years of life, they’d never been separated. Never needed to be. They
were linked through a familial bond, as well as psychically.
Since Darin had taken over Whiskey Hollow as the Pack Alpha, his power
was now hers. And her agony was his. She couldn’t stay, knowing that she caused
him pain and may one day hurt him physically. “Dare, we both know I can’t stay.
Our link is too strong, and I’m not sure how much longer I can hold my wolf
back from challenging you. She grows more aggressive as the poison inside me
grows. A healthy Pack can’t survive with two Alphas.”
“You are not poisoned. I took Ross’s Alpha power when I killed him.”
Darin stepped closer, his hand extended to her.
Involuntarily, Dana growled and jerked back. “Don’t touch me!”
He let out a soft sigh and lowered his hand. Disappointment and sadness
flowed along the link that bound them as twins. Dana hugged her waist. She
wanted nothing more than to embrace her brother and believe that everything
would be okay. But she couldn’t.
“Where will you go?”
Dana shrugged. “Not sure. North, maybe.”
Darin shoved his hands into his pockets. “I can call a few Packs and ask
if you can stay in their territory.”
She sighed and shook her head. “I’m not going to put any other Pack in
jeopardy. I know where the neutral zones are, and I plan to stay within them.”
The truth was, she had a place about twenty miles west of Whiskey
Hollow. However, she didn’t want to tell her brother that was where she planned
to go. Although, he’d find her anyway. And he would, just to keep tabs on her.
She needed the time to get control of her wolf and the growing power
within her.
“Take an enforcer with you.”
Dana whirled on her twin and snarled. “I am not taking anyone with me.
I’m not helpless, and I don’t need a fucking babysitter.”
His wolf flashed in his blue eyes, and he curled his upper lip. “I know
you don’t need a babysitter, but shit happens.”
She strode to him, placed a hand on the center of his chest, and felt
the beating of his heart through the thin cotton T-shirt he wore. Instantly,
she calmed. That was Darin’s gift as a charmed one—a shifter with magic in
their bloodline. “The time has come where I need to search for my own Pack.”
There, she’d said it. Up until then, she’d let her brother believe that
her leaving was temporary, that she’d return. However, she didn’t plan on
coming back. “Look. You may be fine with lying to yourself, but I have to face
reality. The Alpha blood runs thick in my veins, just as it does in yours.
Being mated to Ross only added a shit ton of fuel to the fire.”
She stepped back and turned away from him. The unspoken words lingered
between them. Her guilt for mating the former Alpha had further distorted the
Pack and left her bitter. Especially after she’d watched the bastard kill her
parents. When Darin had killed the asshole and claimed the Pack, Dana was no
longer responsible for protecting it against her mate.

 

 

Yet, the hurt, the anger, and the power she’d gained from Ross had
damaged something inside her. Had broken her on a level she hadn’t thought
possible. She feared she’d go rogue, mindless and bloodthirsty.
