Richard was an alpha werewolf. It was his only serious flaw. We'd broken up after I'd seen him eat somebody.
Still, you never forget your ex-fiancé. And when the call came at three in the morning, I thought for a moment it was him. It wasn't. It was his brother. And it wasn't good news. Apparently, the former love of my life had gotten himself thrown in jail for assaulting a woman.
Since I make my living as a preternatural expert, I tend to believe almost anything's possible. But though he may be one of the monsters, Richard would never harm a woman. So here I am in the wilds of Tennessee, Anita to the rescue. I've got just a few days to spring Richard and find out who framed him -- and why.
There's a full moon coming, and if my werewolf love is still behind bars when it rises, he'll be facing a lot worse than an assault charge ...
Another Way to Bleed
I wondered what Jean-Claude would think of me dropping everything to go rescue Richard. It didn't really matter. I was going. And that was that. But I did spare a thought for how that might make my vampire lover feel. His Original U.S. Cover heart didn't always beat but it could still break.
Love sucks. Sometimes it feels good. Sometimes it's just another way to bleed ...
