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
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.
did anyway, returning to the safety and anonymity of Los Lobos…straight into

He gripped the jamb, steadying himself.
She stood at the edge of the lot, facing
the bar. The ends of her glossy black hair and the hem of her olive-green
T-shirt fluttered in the mild breeze. Otherwise, there was no movement. She
might have been posing for a major ad campaign in one of those high fashion
magazines, as she had in the past.
Who knew what went through her mind being back in town instead.
He wanted to call out, put her at ease.
Fearful she might bolt, he dug his thumbnail into the wood and drank her in.
She’d filled out, no longer the slender
teen he recalled, her shape womanly now. Battered jeans hugged her sleek
thighs. Her tee stretched provocatively across her ample breasts, the nipples
pebbled against the soft cotton despite the warm summer day. A faint rose tint
added a hint of color to her pale skin.
From her inner heat or embarrassment?
The wind picked up, whipping her hair
back. She snatched the locks to keep them over her left ear and edge of her
He didn’t have to wonder why. Her mom
had told him some of what happened to Starr in Los Angeles. Not enough though.
She regarded both sides of the street.
Deserted. Thick forest surrounded the small town, pines creeping up
mountainsides, craggy rocks peeking through primordial vegetation. In the distance, young male voices rang
out with laughter. Teens likely racing each other to the swimming hole.
Wylder breathed a sigh of relief the
kids weren’t headed closer with their snickers, cruel comments, and mocking
gazes. Dumbasses. Bullying wasn’t what Starr needed.
She tilted her face.
Their gazes met.
His heart turned over, warmth flooding
him. She had the face of an angel, her high cheekbones, full mouth, and
almond-shaped eyes almost too beautiful to be real. She parted her lips in what
might have been surprise, wonder, or yearning. He liked to think longing was on
her mind, the same as his.
Her irises shifted from light brown to
dark gold, the way they had in the past when she’d teased, wanting to get a
rise out of him.
He’d ignored her then, had to. Not any
longer. Their time, here and now, had to be right for him to claim her as his
mate. What he’d known from the moment he’d become a man.
He smiled. Hell, he grinned, coming
perilously close to drooling.
Gold faded to brown in her eyes, her
yearning expression turning to hurt then caution. She stepped back.
Shit, she was going to run. He planted
his hands on the jamb of the window and leaned out as far as he could without
She pivoted away then faced him again,
looking at the bar rather than up toward him. With her narrow shoulders
squared, she marched inside.
Tim McGraw’s Live Like You Were Dying stopped abruptly, along with the patrons’
laughter and conversation, everything going dead quiet as though someone had
flipped a switch. Or recalled how she’d run away.
