One of the best parts of working on the Romancing the Wolf project involved visiting the wonderful worlds created by each of the authors. Have you been to Redemption? The first book of this rich world debuted in Under a Wolf Moon, and I loved the free pass to return!
(The Rending, Book 2) by Cara Carnes
Marek will do anything to protect his pack and their land, including executing
any Outsiders who dare enter pack lands. There’s no soft in war–until
Felicity, a curvaceous wolf with more sass than sense limps into Redemption
with an impossible tale of betrayal.
Sharp stabs punctured
each breath Felicity forced in shallow bursts. The man smelled of oak and musk.
He held her gently in a protective embrace she appreciated more than she
should. Who was he? Had she found Redemption?
“Relax, I’ve got you.”
She battled the hazy
fog. Why had she violated the land treaty and gone to Redemption? Oh yeah. The
threat. Her soul ached, her heart too wary for the memories she’d locked away.
Maybe someday she’d recall the atrocities she committed. For now, nothing good
came from recalling what she did.
“The boy.” She collapsed
against the softness at her head and forced her eyelids open despite the harsh
sun tumbling from the sky. Mid-afternoon. A stabbing sensation resonated behind
her eyes. Her entire side throbbed beneath a constant burn. “Save him. Please.”
The wolf—the man who’d
forced her shift held her tighter against him. Full lips harshened into a grim
expression which accentuated the square set of his jaw. Her gaze trekked upward
and locked on the golden amber swirling in darkened chocolate. Thick, dark hair
fell around the handsomest face she’d seen.
Massive shoulders, thick
arms and an expansive chest tumbled into her field of vision when she collapsed
against powerful thighs. Definitely a warrior. Thank goodness he hadn’t
challenged her. Though she’d kicked the asses of many hulky men, she didn’t
think such a battle would bode well for her today.
He kept her pinned in
his embrace. A shadow spanned the sky above her. Crisp traces of sandalwood,
citrus and evergreen assailed her nostrils. Newcomers.
The strong wolf didn’t
shift to a defensive stance. Struggling beneath his firm hold, she tugged and
twisted as she blindly searched for a weapon. If she’d collapsed near her
terrain—Outsider country—any stranger was a perceived threat until proven
No. Her mind flashed
memories. Walk. Burned paws. Hurt jaw. Dry terrain. She’d fled the Outlands
days ago. Right?
“Calm. A white dragon
healer is here to help. If you get too agitated Doc will kick my ass for
scaring you.” The man’s lips turned into a slight smirk.
“I see why you insisted
on tending the wounded.” The uncensored anger forced her wolf forward in an
agitated growl. The approaching man halted and grinned. “She’s developed your
bedside manner, Marek.”
