Short Excerpt from Mine Furever:
Someone must have left the door stop down. Delivery guy probably. He shook his head but stood there a second longer. It was cold as fuck. February was probably the coldest month in the Garden State. Beachfront or not. He took a deep breath of the cold fresh air and closed his eyes.
He smelled ice and snow, wind, surf and sand, but underneath it all there was something else. Something strangely alluring. Like gummy cinnamon bears. He’d had quite the addiction as a pup.
So much so, his mama never let him have a lick of candy unless he’d eaten all his meat and veggies first like a good boy. He’d even eaten turnip greens without bacon for a few of those sweet and spicy little bears. He wondered why he was smelling them now.
Jordan opened his eyes, using his supernaturally enhanced eyesight and looked for something, anything to explain the sudden appearance of the mouthwatering aroma. Just then he noticed a fleck of red dancing on the air.
Stepping out onto the concrete sidewalk he narrowed his eyes. He reached out with super-fast reflexes and snatched the little red thing right out of the air.
His palm itched and burned for half a second. He held it close and turned it over so he could see what it was he was dealing with. For some reason he felt very attached to the little thing.
“A rose petal?” Not unusual he supposed. It was Valentine’s Day. There were bound to be hundreds of the overpriced suckers floating around today.
The sound of a voice brought his head up. A woman was running towards him. Well, she was attempting to run over the frozen sidewalk, but was doing something more like her impression of ice skating in her four-inch stiletto heeled boots.
Holy shit! Jordan almost swallowed his tongue as he watched the sassy little creature in her tight black jeans and curve hugging red sweater. The clothing made his mouth water, but the ankle breakers on her feet were worrisome.
“Shit,” he growled as she started to fall.
Jordan’s Wolf needed no urging from his human side to sprint across the snow and ice, arms outstretched, ready to catch the gorgeous creature before she hurt herself on the cold frozen ground.
