Publication Date: April 2, 2011

Synopsis:
I killed a girl last night. I did it with my bare hands and an old piece of pipe I found lying next to the dumpster. But that’s not the part that got me. The part that scared me, the part I can’t seem to wrap my head around and still has me reeling, was that when she charged me, her body shifted – and then she was a wolf. All snapping teeth and extended claws. But by the time I stood over her lifeless body, she was a girl again. That’s about the time I went into shock… And that was the moment he showed up.

Now, all I can do is accept the truths that are staring me in the face. One, Werewolves do exist. And two, I was born to kill them.

When her sleazy ex cheated on her, Alice turned to her best friend Zack for support. Her head tells her never to love again, but in the arms of Zack, her heart has other ideas.

How can he tell her how much he wants her, when one night of passion could destroy the friendship of a lifetime?

Sitting under the Coogee sunshine, Zack Sky waited for his best friend Alice to arrive at the café. He took in the noisy bustle of the waiters and waitresses running from the kitchen to their designated tables allowed bursts of heavenly aromas to waft through the air. He looked at his watch and felt butterflies dance in his belly; it was nearly time for Alice to arrive for their regular Friday lunch. Rubbing his eyes with the heel of his hands, Zack winced at the burn and sting from his sleep-deprived eyes. He straightened his shoulders, determination set.
Despite her telling him five years ago that they could only be friends, that she wanted nothing to change between them, he was going to make her break through her emotionally crippling fear that whoever she chose to love would cheat on her like her father had done to her mother. Finally, Alice would realise that he loved her, had loved her since their first year of high school. Would love her forever.

Contains adult situations recommended for ages 18+

Excerpt:
Pent up longing clashes with sensible reasoning, an explosive battle met and lost by both parties. I have only the time it takes for me to inhale sharply and then he reaches me. Pressed up against the door, holding me there with his body, Dex slides his calloused fingers along my jaw until they meet at the nape of my neck. His lips touch mine, just a soft, testing, teasing touch, and I’m trembling. His next move brings my arms high above my head, both hands clasped tightly in one of his. My eyes flutter to a close under the heated caress of his breath on my cheek.

Then he kisses me. Not a simple kiss. He is full on claiming me. Branding me with every swipe of his tongue against mine, his mouth hot and hard and demanding. I don’t question the loss of his hand from my neck, sliding down my shoulder, in the sensual daze he’s put me in. Not even when that same hand cups my left breast and begins tugging on the tight peak of my nipple, jolting awareness through me.

Breaking away from my lips all too suddenly, Dex bends his knees low enough to sweep me into his arms, and he stalks off to his bedroom.
