Carter didn’t realize how far his control had slipped until he tasted blood in his mouth and realized that his fangs had sliced into the inside of his cheek. Heart hammering in his chest, he cursed when he saw inch-long claws at the tips of each finger.


Knowing he’d partially shifted pushed him completely over the edge and everything around him began to get hazy. He let out a low growl of frustration, unable to help himself. His omega was well on its way to taking over and there was nothing he could do about it.


Crap.


He was going to completely wolf out in front of the worst possible person in the world. The knowledge that he was putting his pack at risk only made the situation worse and he felt the curtain descending over him getting darker by the second.


Then, just as it seemed like he was going to black out, Carter felt a pair of warm, soft hands grasping his. Confused, he opened his eyes to see Dr. Delacroix kneeling in front of him. She slowly slid her fingers down each of his, starting at the top of the knuckle and gradually working her way down to the tip of the claw, like she was squeezing a tube of toothpaste. The movement felt incredibly calming.


A soft sound slipped through the haze surrounding him. It took a few seconds for him to realize that she was humming. The tune was a children’s lullaby, something he hadn’t heard since he was a kid.

 
When Carter felt some semblance of control returning to his legs, he tried to get to his feet. He had to get out of there—now. But Delacroix refused to let go. Instead, she continued to hum the soothing melody and squeeze his fingers. Like she wasn’t bothered by the sight of his claws at all.


He had no idea how she did it, but within moments the haze he’d begun to associate with his inner omega taking over had faded away. Seconds later, his claws and fangs receded, leaving him sitting there staring down at the beautiful woman kneeling in front of him.


“How did you…?” was all he was able to say.


Dr. Delacroix smiled. “What, you thought you were the first omega werewolf with anger management issues I’ve ever met?”

“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?
