So how’d you like Werewolf Month, eh? I hope you took advantage of all the free wolves I have to offer. Keep reading the daily story below. And then be sure to check out Harlequin’s offer when you sign up for their newsletter you can download a free copy of HER WEREWOLF HERO (or any of the 17 titles they offer). As well, when you sign up for my newsletter you get a free download of MOON KISSED. Whew! That’s a lot of wolves. But I’m not done with wolves this year. More on that tomorrow. 😉
Blaise paced the living room before the couch. Cady lingered in the kitchen after the supper dishes had been washed and put away. Was she organizing the fridge?
No, she was avoiding him. He knew it as he knew the shift beckoned to him even as he fought it.
Damn it, he wanted her to accept him, and to not feel forced into anything. Like having a romance with an animal. Cady was strong and proud. So sexy. And yes, she probably was the wife he didn’t know he needed.
He did need her. He wanted her.
“So are you going out soon?”
He spun to spy her fiddling with the ends of her hair. Reluctant. Not so strong and proud.
Blaise dropped to his knees before her and kissed her hands. “Tell me that you can love me,” he said. “I need you, Cady. As more than a glorified secretary. I need you here.” He slapped a palm over his heart. “But you don’t want that, do you?”
“I do,” she said with surprise. “Oh, Blaise, stand up and hold me. Be my big strong lover.”
“With a tail and moonlight howls?”
She bowed her forehead to his and nodded. “I was avoiding you just now. But only because my thoughts have been conflicted lately. ‘Does he really love me?’ ‘Can I love him?’ And you know what?” She straightened and directed him to stand before her. “I’m in love with a werewolf.”
“You don’t have to say that because you think it’s what I want to hear.”
“I’m not. I’m in this for all the full moons to come. Think you can handle that, boss man?”
“I thought you wanted us to take it slow?”
“We will. But making slow love is the best.”
He kissed her. “I agree.”
