Welcome to Thunder Wolves, my paranormal series from Changeling Press.
Book three is Canus and Dalyn’s story – two soldiers finding love. Book two is Clay and Kissa’s story – a wolf and a mountain cat?
Book one is Thorne and Madison’s story – She’s an Empath who believes her gift is a curse, but she’s the one for Thorne.
Thanks to her precognitive skill, Unit Leader Dalyn Durant has an excellent mission success rate. But lately, her missions have encountered problems she couldn’t foresee. A dark wolf consumes her visions. He’s a stranger, and he’s coming for her.
His first night assigned to Black Alpha Base, Canus Thunder catches an irresistible scent. She’s sexy, a she-wolf, a soldier and she’s his perfect mate. But the rise of the sun brings bad news. Dalyn is his new unit leader and he’s been assigned to evaluate her team. The rules of engagement have changed.
A mission brings them back together, but Dalyn’s injuries threatened to tear them apart all over again.
Thunder Wolves Canus Excerpt 3
They continued to walk and Dalyn pointed out the communication and the command center as they walked through the base. Instead of permanent structures, the base was an orderly tent city with a few portable buildings.
Their conversation flowed easily without the awkward pauses that sometimes happened between strangers. Canus and Dalyn were soldiers and werewolves. Maybe that was the attraction, the familiarity and comfort of being with one’s own kind. Although Canus was one quarter human, he didn’t feel any less a wolf and although he and Dalyn had just met, he knew she was special.
They came upon the airstrip. Four large prefabricated buildings stood to the left. Next to the buildings was a line of helicopters. To the right of the airstrip was a large tent with a huge red cross.
“The four prefabs house our dragon fighters,” Dalyn said. “You can hear a chopper a mile away. Dragons are stealthy. We have a good field hospital. Great staff, but none of us want to meet them on the job. So far I’ve been lucky. How about you?”
“I’ve taken a bullet,” Canus said, recalling a mission that had gone very wrong.
“Ever lost a team member?”
“I have. Last year, I lost two guys. Some missions go sideways no matter how well you plan.”
Her shoulders slumped. “Do you ever stop thinking about them?”
“I like to think they wouldn’t want me to forget them.”
“I lost a team member. McHenry was a good soldier.”
Canus had wrestled with the losses of his team members. He’d questioned his decisions and went over the mission again and again. Time and long talks with his twin brother had helped. Dalyn’s torment was fresh. “When you need to talk or just take a walk, I’ll be here.”
“You’re good for me, Canus. I’m glad we met.”
Thinking she needed a change of subject, he asked, “Where’s home?”
“What do you miss most about home, other than your family?”
“I miss the snow. What about you?”
“Northern California. I miss my cabin and watching the moon rise over the mountains.”
“Tell me about it.”
“I bought it from my grandfather. It was his hunting cabin, very rustic and isolated. Trees all around. A river and waterfall close by. Every leave, I work on it. It’s shaping up, slowly. I’m at peace there.”
“Sounds like heaven. Does it snow in the winter?”
“Yes, but our winters are short.”
Canus was completely at ease with Dalyn, totally enamored and utterly aroused. Wanting closer contact, he released her hand and put his arm around her waist.
She turned into his arms. The brush of her breasts against his chest sent a searing heat through Canus’ middle. Her lips, soft, warm and pliant, touched his.
He cupped her face, kissing her. She responded, kissing him back.
Canus deepened the kiss, pulled her tight and held her close.
He touched her breast and his heart squeezed. Her breast was soft and round and wonderful.
By the time the kiss ended heat poured off their bodies, scenting the air with the potent desire of wolf pheromones. He knew she wanted him, but he didn’t want her to regret her actions.
“Dalyn, is this going to happen?”
