Devin Owen has come back from the Dragon Wars a changed Werewolf. For one thing, he's lost his wolf side as well as most of his desire to live. He spends most of his life doped up to handle the pain from his injured leg.
Lena Knox knew the moment she met Devin that he was her mate. But, she'd been a child at the time and he hadn't noticed her at all. Now, all grown up she wants Devin to be the wolf she’s waited for. Not that she has a lot of time for longing with life crumbling around her.
A couple of heated encounters draw them together but is it enough to overcome the war wounds they both carry? Or will an outside enemy destroy them before they get the chance to know?
One lone tear escaped, and she quickly batted it away. She might as not have, as he’d be able to smell her distress. Trying to be as sly as she could, she glanced over at Devin, hoping he wouldn’t notice. He stared up at the ceiling, his gaze distant and removed.
She cleared her throat. “Would you like to shift and go for a run?”
Lena couldn’t think of anything she’d like better than to escape this room. He’d brought her utter and complete pleasure and then shattered her soul.
Devin rolled over, his back facing her, his head turned away. “You go ahead. I can’t shift anymore. Haven’t been able to since I came back.”
He couldn’t shift? A strange buzzing sensation filled her mind. This was important. It had to matter that Devin had been disconnected from his Wolf.
“That’s why you can’t heal your leg? You can’t shift to fix it?”
He turned to look at her, his eyes tired. “It’s pretty disgusting, I know. Trust me, no one likes looking at it less than I do. Twisted flesh, the bone poking out from where it should be—yeah, it’s gross.”
“I didn’t say it was gross. I just asked if that was why it wasn’t fixed.” She rubbed her eyes. “What do the doctors say about why you can’t shift?”
“Nothing. They have nothing to say.”
Well, okay, you asked for it. LOL!!
6:00 AM—It’s still dark outside. Pitch black, actually. Very different from when we lived in New Jersey. But, now we live in Central Time or maybe that’s not the reason. In any case, I’ve had six months to get used to living in Texas. I need to get up. GET UP, Rebecca.
I throw my legs over the bed and climb out. For a moment, the room is not steady. How could it be? I desperately want to still be asleep. It rights itself and I walk, trying not to trip over the dogs, cats, toys, shoes, or whatever else is all over my bedroom floor. I try not to wake my husband. He’ll have to get up in a second but I like having the bathroom to myself for a few minutes.
Quickly, I brush my teeth and wash my face. I cross the room again. My husband gets up and I go upstairs to wake our three children. Sometimes when I wake up in the morning, the toddler, who is three, has climbed into my bed some time during the night. But today he seems to have spent the night in his own bed. (Hallelujah!)
I wake up all three of them. Two of them always get up well but one of them is really hard to get up. He’s always mad or crying about it.
6:30 AM-Breakfast. I’m a short order cook. Eggs, Waffles, Bagels, Cereal. Whatever they feel like eating that morning. My middle son has stopped crying and he eats his breakfast. Everyone eats and rushes up the stairs to get dressed. I get dressed in temporary clothes.
7:25-Leave the house with two of three of my children. Drop the older two at school. Turn around. Come home.
8 AM-I eat breakfast, which right now is not very exciting. A diet shake. Oh well, not forever.
8:40- Take the toddler to nursery school. Traffic. No way to avoid it.
