Loving The WOLF

the swat series, book 14


SWAT Werewolf Trevor McCall thinks that Jenna Malone is The One for him—his soul mate who accepts both the man he is and the wolf inside. Problem is, she’s also his best buddy’s sister. But that didn’t stop Jenna from inviting Trevor to visit her in Los Angeles, and it won’t stop him from taking her up on her invitation.

But what’s hiding in LA is much more dangerous and complicated than any of the SWAT team could have guessed, and Jenna’s right in the middle of it. Jenna and Trevor will have to have to work together and protect each other. This is his chance, and this time there's no backing down... 

Releasing December 5, 2017
When SWAT Officer Max Lowry meets Lana Mason, he falls fast and hard. He’s positive she’s The One. And Max’s favorite part? Lana’s a wolf shifter too, so they can skip the awkward reveal and head straight to the happily ever after. There’s just one problem: Lana doesn’t know that she’s a werewolf.
To make matters worse, hunters with intent to kill have tracked Lana to Dallas. Max has to figure out how to keep Lana safe, show her who and what she really is—and just how much she means to him.

As much as she wanted to hang out and talk, a ridiculous series of yawns gave away her exhaustion.

“I guess it’s time to get you to bed,” Trevor said softly, his body still pressed warmly to hers. “To say it’s been a long day would be an understatement.

As he started to step back, she found herself holding on to him more tightly, not wanting to lose the sense of safety and comfort that came with being in his arms. Normally, she wouldn’t even consider being so clingy, but after the day she’d had, she decided she deserved to spoil herself a little.

“I know we’ve been taking our time with this thing going on between us, but after everything that happened tonight, I’d rather not sleep alone,” she said softly. “Do you think you could stay with me, just to sleep?”

He gazed down at her. “Not that I wouldn’t love to sleep with you, but are you sure?”

“I’m definitely sure.” She grinned. “As long as you’re okay with me putting my feet on you, no matter how cold they get.”

“I think I can handle that,” he said with a chuckle.

Taking her hand, he turned and led her across the room to the bed, then pulled back the blankets and sheets. Jenna climbed in, excitement tingling deep in her stomach. It wasn’t like she hadn’t slept with guys before—in the literal and biblical sense—but this was different. She wasn’t sure exactly how, but it was.

Trevor moved over to the doorway to flick off the overhead light, then walked back across the darkened room. Considering she couldn’t see much of anything, she should probably have reached out and turned on the bedside lamp, but from the sound of his steady footsteps, he obviously had no problem avoiding the various obstacles she had lying around the room, including her beloved and cuddly Freddy Krueger plushie, who would probably be in her bed if it wasn’t for the much better offer she had right then.

Trevor slipped into the bed, smooth and graceful. Then he wrapped an arm around her waist, pulling her close to his body again, spooning her. Not only was his chest pressing against her, but his crotch and thighs, too. As if it had a mind of its own, her butt wiggled backward, seeking as much contact as possible.

She wasn’t disappointed with the results, as her butt found a perfect sleeping spot right there against his shorts, his impressive bulge nestling comfortably against her. Like they were two pieces of the same puzzle, meant to be together.

One of his muscular arms slid under her pillow, while the one around her waist moved up to nestle comfortably beneath her breasts, warming them nicely through her tank top. In fact, he was warming her nicely all over. She was about to tell him as much when he moved slightly, burying his face in her hair, right there at the junction of her neck and shoulder. Then he inhaled deeply—purposefully—letting out an appreciative groan.

It was pretty much the sexiest thing someone had ever done to her, and her heart squeezed a little bit in her chest at the thought that Trevor was possibly the greatest thing since liquid latex.

And considering the affinity she had for using liquid latex in her special effects makeup, that was saying something.

“Good night, Jenna,” he whispered against the skin of her neck. “Sleep tight.”

“Good night,” she whispered back, though she wasn’t sure how much sleeping she’d be getting tonight. Not that she was complaining in the slightest.

“Speaking of award ceremonies,” she said to Max, “I didn’t see you on the stage getting a commendation, so I’m guessing you must be here to support someone who did?”
He nodded. “Yeah. Some of the members of my team got recognized today. How about you? Your boyfriend getting a commendation?”
Max thought he was being pretty damn smooth, but the smile tugging at Lana’s lips told him she saw right through his deception.
“Nope, no boyfriend,” she said. “Actually, it was my dad. Brandy took forever getting dressed. Then we got stuck in traffic. We barely made it here in time to see him get the award. I had to watch from the back of the auditorium.”
That explained why Max hadn’t picked up Lana’s luscious scent earlier. And while he was relieved she didn’t have a boyfriend, it made him wonder which of his fellow cops getting a commendation this afternoon could possibly have a daughter this smokin’ hot.
Max opened his mouth to ask her who her father was when another DPD officer walked by with a plate filled with a collection of various hors d’oeuvres. While Max wasn’t impressed with the selection of food, Lana looked at the appetizers longingly, even though she still had the ones her friend had given her. Maybe she wasn’t big on squash blossoms. He didn’t blame her.
“Would you like me to get you something else to eat?” he asked.
She glanced down at her plate, then shook her head. “Thanks, but unfortunately, the spinach puffs were the only thing remotely edible, which is probably why they’re all gone. I can’t believe they’re trying to pass this stuff off as food.”
He grinned. “I was just thinking the same thing a little while ago. I’m planning to head out as soon as this thing is over so I can get some real food.”
She leaned in close and gave him a conspiratorial wink. “Maybe we can slip out now while no one is looking. I can drop my car keys off with Brandy and we can disappear into the night. I’d just about kill for a slice of pizza.”
Any other time, Max would have been stoked to hear that. In his opinion, there wasn’t anything sexier than a woman who loved pizza. But right then, all he could think about was how his body was reacting to Lana’s nearness. Not only was his pulse racing, but his claws and fangs were dangerously close to coming out. He only hoped his eyes weren’t turning gold.
On the upside, at least he now knew for sure she was a werewolf. He could smell it in her pheromones. That was probably why they hit it off so well. Well, there was another reason, but he wasn’t about to go there—even if a little wolf voice in the back of his head whispered maybe he should.
Lana was telling him about an awesome pizza place that wasn’t too far away, wondering if he’d be interested in checking it out, but instead of answering her, he went in a completely different direction.
“It’s so cool finding another of our kind here,” he said. “I totally didn’t expect it.”
She didn’t seem to mind that he’d changed the sub¬ject, but she looked a bit confused. “Another of our kind? Are you a pescatarian, too?”
Max chuckled. That body and those looks combined with a wicked sense of humor? It was like she was made for him. A werewolf who didn’t eat meat? Now, that was epically funny.
Unless it was true, in which case it was a little strange.
Before he could say anything, Lana leaned over to look at something behind him, her lips curving into a smile. Max turned to see who she was looking at and was a little surprised to find Deputy Chief Hal Mason. The deputy chief was in charge of the police depart¬ment’s specialized Tactical Division, which included the mounted police, canine unit, helicopter support, EOD, and SWAT. As a high-ranking officer in the depart¬ment, Mason had to attend every award ceremony, but this time he’d been recognized for his commitment to developing his entire division, especially SWAT.
“Hey, Dad.” Lana stepped around Max to give Mason a hug. “I was looking for you and Mom earlier, but you were deep in conversation with some people and I didn’t want to interrupt.”
Max picked his jaw up from the floor and shoved it back into place. Lana was the deputy chief’s daughter?
