What happens when you have powerful women warriors and a stubborn werewolf alpha running the show?
Mayhem, that’s what.
The Huntresses are rising up to claim their power and take their rightful place as wolf slayers. A conflict of interest as far as pack alpha, Mayhem, is concerned. Also a dangerous situation that puts his pack, the people he cares for most in the world, right in the middle of a pending war. He’s chosen the pack’s path, and has determined their place on the game board but is unwilling to fully embrace the role of the Huntress. What he’s yet to learn is just how stubborn those girls can be. Born to hunt and fight, Hannah and the Huntresses will prove just how powerful they are when it comes to protecting the pack and their mates.

She stared at him with defiance burning bright. “You can’t fight what’s happening to us. If you do, things are going to keep going to shit. We are Huntresses. We are sorely lacking in our skills and training but nevertheless, we are powerful warriors and you need to accept that as truth or else banish us all.”
Mayhem looked at her with frustration. “I won’t accept that. Not if it means our pack is torn apart.”
“Take a look around, Mayhem.” She waved her arms, her eyes flashing with anger. “The pack is splintered, already tearing apart. The only way for us to come together is if you deal with it. Accept it. Maybe even embrace it.”
Her words were like a dagger to the chest. He turned and slowly lowered himself to sit on the bed once again. She believed what she was saying, but did that make it true?
He felt her move on the bed. Felt her press her body against his, her lips touching his back, her words soft once again.
“You always want to protect the pack, to shelter us from danger. That’s what makes you a good alpha. You’d do anything to keep us safe. But the trouble with that is, you can’t shelter us from this. Not when it’s ignoring things like instinct and drive. Not when it’s been decreed that we are part of this. You chose a side, remember? You’ve committed us to the good guys, where we are meant to fight. Now we have to embrace that. Rise up. Be a formidable force and stop fighting against what comes naturally.”
“Even if some of us die? Even if we come out of this a bloody pulp? The pack destroyed?” He shook his head, defeat weighing heavy.
She wrapped her arms around his waist. “We have to believe that we will be triumphant. We have to go into this with the confidence to win.”
“But we’re already losing, Hannah. We’ve already lost.”
“The battle isn’t over yet, Mayhem. And when you’re talking about magic, there’s no such thing as gone forever. I believe we’ll be together again. All of us.”
Whether here or in the afterlife, Mayhem thought, the words trapped in his throat. He wanted to believe her conviction. He wanted to let instinct take over and claim the role he was destined to take. But was it worth the risk? Was it worth the sacrifice?
He turned gently so he could untangle himself from her embrace and pulled her into his lap. He breathed in her scent, her hair always reminding him some kind of sweet flower. Her body felt right in his arms, cradled there with her hand on his chest. He looked down at her, seeking that conviction, that strength in her eyes.
“What did I do to deserve you, my sweet Hannah? What would I be without you?”
Hannah smiled as she lifted her hand to his cheek. “A lonely, sex deprived, stupid man.”
He smirked, swatted her ass, the tension of the moment gone as she grinned up at him. “You need another shower,” he said as he lifted her and walked toward the bathroom.
At least if he was going to die, it would be with a smile on his face.
The Huntresses are stepping up their game. So are the forces arrayed against them. . .
The Order of the Wolf, Book 7
Mayhem is furious. While he and the boys have been rocking it out on stage at a series of concerts in Scotland, Darcy and Aubrey have been sneaking out for, as they so defiantly put it, “training.”
Raven is cut to the bone when he discovers what Darcy’s been doing behind his back. But simply forbidding the women from hunting isn’t the answer. Though it makes him uneasy, he talks Mayhem into joining forces to train alongside their women.
Training is in full swing when they encounter a pair of ancient Huntresses battling each other with powers Darcy and the girls can only dream about. Taking sides turns out to be a mistake when Darcy and Raven are kidnapped, and an evil plan is put into play to use the girls’ powers to unleash Lazarus, the king of the beasts.
The only way to defeat him is for the Order, Huntresses, and Wolves to put their mutual mistrust aside and unite. Or the world could be flooded with an unending river of feral beasts.
Warning: Contains sex in public places, a virtual reality threesome, and some red hot lovin’. Female warriors with an attitude who won’t be shackled or coddled, and rock star werewolf mates who are hard pressed to keep up.
