There’s no place like home…especially for a wolf who shouldn’t have run away.
Wylder Aaron always knew Starr Joseph was his mate, but the time wasn’t right for them. To escape his hopeless feelings for her, he fled Los Lobos and joined the military, not even saying goodbye.
Starr wanted nothing more in life than Wylder. When he left, she fled too. Her sultry beauty made her an instant success as the new look for a major cosmetics firm. However, fame is fleeting. At twenty-six, she’s old news and forgotten. Worse, loneliness led her into the arms of another were-shifter with a jealous streak. During his last rage, he slashed the side of her face, promising to kill her the next time she tried to flee.
She did anyway, returning to the safety and anonymity of Los Lobos…straight into Wylder’s arms.
His heart cramped but he managed a smile and held up the candy. “My treat. How many would you like?”
“The whole box.”
He counted thirty. “Didn’t your mom tell you these would rot your teeth?”
“I’m making up for lost time. For ten years, I wasn’t allowed even one candy bar. A camera puts on the pounds, you know.”
Poor deprived baby. He grabbed the box and the one with the Milky Ways beside it, her next fave. Some shifters had a hard time with chocolate, the same as dogs. Not her. Him either. Another way they fit. “You like Butterfinger, Twix, Snickers? Say the word, they’re yours.” He wanted to buy her the whole damn store. He would have done anything to give her the world.
Her irises shifted, turning a deep gold the way they always did when she was happy or aroused. However, her shoulders were also shaking with suppressed laughter. “I was only kidding. Not about the ten-year sentence without candy but wanting the whole box. You can put it back.”
He didn’t. “I’m serious. Whatever you want, name it, it’s yours.” As long as she didn’t tell him she wanted peace again, freedom, and space from him.
A pink flush crept up her throat, the same color tinting her cheeks. Shoppers passed. Neither he nor Starr acknowledged anyone else, the air between them suddenly thick with promise. Perspiration slid down his spine and the side of his face. He was so damn hot, in another couple of seconds he might burst into flames.
She cradled his cheek, drawing her thumb over his bottom lip. Currents of new warmth swept through him. His mouth, the back of his throat, and the tips of his toes tingled. A sound escaped his throat he didn’t recognize as being quite human or animal. She sighed breathily and melted into him with stunning ease, her lips brushing his.
He groaned. She fitted her mouth to his, muting the sound, and slipped her tongue inside.
Aw God. His knees sagged, bumping hers. She tasted of life, hope, pleasure, love, a flavor only a supernatural being could create, her mouth hotter than the sun, sweeter than spring. Nothing on this earth had ever satisfied him better.
He pressed into her. She did the same with him, their thighs touching. A pulse beat hard in his throat and temple. Each breath he took was meager but filled with her wondrous fragrance. His head swam and his muscles ached as he fought to suppress too many base urges—throwing her over his shoulder, carrying her into the forest, mounting her until the end of time.
She tore her mouth from his, her boobs wiggling prettily with her strained breaths. He wasn’t certain he’d ever breathe normally again.
“This.” She swallowed and pointed at him.
She heaved in another breath. “You said to name whatever I wanted. This.” She touched his mouth.
No kidding? “Me, too.”
