Book two in the Sin City Kilts series
Can two wild souls survive the storm?
Mira, a zoologist and secret cryptozoologist at Vegas Zoo, has observed an unusual wolf prowling the confines of the zoo and her own property. But her dream of discovering a new species and documenting her find brings her up against Vegas’ werewolf community when rumors of her discovery of this dangerous hybrid threaten to expose them.
Calan Creig, a Highland Heathen Wulver Enforcer and head of Worldwide Security for Lycans, is summoned to Vegas to investigate. Although Mira’s eager to study this Tasmanian wolf lookalike, thought extinct for almost a hundred years, Calan is convinced he’ll be able to distract her and put obstacles in her path to prevent the discovery from being widespread. A playboy, he enjoys women and looks forward to seeing what Vegas can offer him—only, what it brings him is Mira, his mate!
But the hybrid wolf craves Mira to strengthen his own bloodline and will stop at nothing to have her. Now Mira and Calan must work together to eliminate the threat of this renegade wolf…if they can find their way past their deep mistrust issues. It seems impossible, but with Mira’s life and all that Calan holds dear at stake, it’s the only hope left.
The key slipped in easily enough, then, when I twisted it to open the lock, it kept sticking. Frustrated, I pushed at a strand of hair that had slipped from my ponytail. I had changed back into shorts and a white T-shirt to make my self-imposed task easier. I didn’t want to head back to the office, defeated, so I put my back into it, pushing hard, praying I didn’t break the damn key off in the lock.
“Can I help you, lass?”
The nice rumbly voice with the wonderful cadence of a Scotsman came from my right, and I whirled around. No one had been there only seconds ago, but now a very large man stood directly in my path. A good-looking man also—some might even say extraordinarily handsome—with his long light brown hair pulled back in a tie at his neck. He even smelled good.
Surreal didn’t cover it. Was I hallucinating, maybe? Gone back in time like that heroine from those Outlander stories? Do hallucinations include all the senses? I could see him, hear him, smell him. I reached out and touched his arm, just to make sure. Yup, he was as firm and as hot as he looked. Well, that just left one sense. Taste. I licked my lips.
His eyes widened, his gaze dropping to linger on my mouth. “What seems to be the trouble, lass?” He repeated his question.
