Alpha of the Eastern Wolves, owner of McManus Security, and confidant to the king, Julian has his hands full. He doesn’t have time for love, but he’s not above enjoying a little lust from time to time, especially after meeting the new Coywolf senator he can’t seem to stop thinking about.
Jared feels an instant attraction to the alpha and willingly falls into bed with him—before misfortune threatens to change both of their lives.
When Julian stands up and takes responsibility for his actions, Jared is stripped of everything he is. Handed over to Julian as mere chattel, Jared can’t help but rebel at every turn.
But he can’t fight the growing feelings he has for the alpha…
“Perhaps you are simply overcomplicating a simple issue,” Jared said.
Julian growled. “Are you always this much of a pain in the ass?”
“Yes,” Jared said with a grin.
Julian couldn’t hold back. He grabbed the male’s head and planted his lips on Jared’s. Julian pressed Jared into the stone wall behind them and slanted his head, deepening the kiss. Jared melted against him and opened to Julian.
Julian grazed the back of his hand against Jared’s robe and felt the impression of a hard cock behind it. The coywolf wanted him as much as he wanted the male.
He broke the kiss, already hungry for more. “Do not lie and tell me you don’t want me,” Julian said. “You want me no less than I want you.”
“There are always ten sides to a decision—”
Julian forced his lips down on Jared’s, stopping the parroted response. He wouldn’t allow Jared’s stubbornness to get in the way of what they both wanted.
When he finally lifted his head, Jared’s stare was lit with lust. “Why do you have to make me burn?”
Julian chuckled, loving the tone of need in Jared’s voice.
Jared pushed from Julian’s arms and walked toward the door to the room they occupied. He stopped at the frame and looked over his shoulder, casting Julian a wanton stare. Heat flooded Julian.
