When Sharon caught her eye and smiled, she quickly looked away, feeling as if a thousand tiny spiders were burrowing into her skin. Just one look from that woman, and she felt unclean. Sharon had to be a demon. When Roy launched into another sob story about Roy Senior, she pretended to be interested, but she was trying to probe Sharon’s mind. Soon words began to filter into her head.

What is it? a deep, dark voice asked.

That girl, Sharon answered.

They were speaking telepathically. 

She’s a beauty, the man’s words slithered across her senses like a serpent.

Sharon toyed with the rim of her margarita glass, covertly giving Annie more coy glances. She smells like a wolf, but she has too much human blood.

Maybe she is part human.

No. Shifters don’t mate with humans.

That was one thing she’d gotten wrong about the Amaroki. Good. The less she knew about Annie’s kind, the better.

You sure?

Don’t be an idiot. She abruptly sat back, removing her foot from his crotch. I’ve been in this dimension for four hundred years. I’ve never seen a wolf/human pairing.

Four hundred years! Holy shit. Sharon didn’t look older than thirty-five.

Sharon’s companion leaned toward her. What is she to them?

I don’t know, but she is being watched by those two wolves. Sharon inclined her head at Van and Tor, who were talking over drinks and four baskets of polished chicken wing bones, seemingly unaware of the two demons at the bar.

We have enough human slaves. The man latched onto Sharon’s wrist. Do not think about it, Balban. 

Balban? Was that Sharon’s demon name?

Sharon pouted. But she is so pretty, Aosoth.

The veins in his neck popped out. Those wolves are too protective of her.

Of course they are. Sharon—Balban—smiled venomously. She’s a delicious little virgin.

Aosoth rubbed sweat off his bald head. You smell her virginal blood?

I do.  Balban’s eyes practically rolled into the back of her head. It’s heavenly.

He mopped his face and head with a napkin. She’d fetch a high price, but she’s not worth the risk.

Oh, they never are. Balban’s demonic laughter rang in Annie’s ears. But this one is such a challenge. How can I resist?

Great Ancients! Fear solidified Annie’s veins to ice. This demon was willing to risk fighting shifters for her virginity? She had to get the fuck out of here. Her attention snapped to Roy, who was waving a hand in front of her face.

“So you’ll go?”

“Yes,” she absently answered, unaware of what Roy was asking her. She abruptly stood, smoothing invisible wrinkles down her pants. She felt the demon bitch’s eyes boring holes through her skin. “I’m ready to leave.”

“We haven’t even ordered yet,” Roy said.

She dug into her purse and threw ten dollars on the table, enough for Roy’s one beer. “I want to go, Roy. Now.”

He frowned at the money but didn’t object to her paying. “What’s wrong?”

“Nothing,” she lied. “I-I don’t feel well.”

She waved at Tor and Van, who also stood. Tor arched an inquisitive brow, but she looked away, clutching her purse tightly.

She marched to the exit, pleased when Tor and Van followed. She just prayed the demons wouldn’t follow, too.

Fighting for Her Wolves, Hungry for Her Wolves, Book Five UNEDITED sample copyright Tara West.

Magnus stared down at his food while keeping only one hand on the table, the other stuffed in his pocket as if he was ashamed of his missing limb. Second Alpha Raine acted like the first alpha. He didn’t steal glances like his brothers. No, he gave her bold looks like he was undressing her with his eyes. It was quite unnerving, and maybe a little exciting. He’d been the one to greet her at the door and hold out her chair before she sat down.

Jax had a feral look about him like all betas, but he also had a subtle, sweet smile. His dark hair was buzzed short, like an Army tracker, but from what she’d heard, he’d followed Vidar’s orders and had never enlisted in the military. She couldn’t help but wonder if he’d cut his hair short to defy his father. Frey had this deer-in-the-headlights look whenever she caught him staring at her. He also had the typical gamma baby face, with squeezable cheeks and an infectious smile. She’d smiled at him a few times, and was rewarded with a goofy grin and flame-red cheeks.

How badly she’d wanted to pop into her mates’ heads, but she’d been too terrified to try. What if she heard something she didn’t like? Besides, she knew it was an invasion of their privacy. She’d hear their thoughts soon enough after their mating. If she ever mated with them.

“So, Annie,” Vidar slurred as he sloshed his mixed drink all over the table. “Rumor is that you killed a human. Is this true?”

Wow. So he was finally addressing her? He hadn’t said two words to her since she’d sat down at the table, and now he wanted to talk about the time she was forced to defend herself against a rapist? The way he smiled at her with a feral gleam in his eyes made her flesh crawl. She cleared her throat, refusing to be intimidated by the man. “Yes.”

He leaned into her, his eyes lighting like fireworks. “How did you do it?”

What a sick fuck. Did he really think she’d want to talk about something so traumatic? She set her fork down, folding her hands in front of her. “I really don’t like talking about it.”

“Nothing to be ashamed of.” Waving his drink in the air, he sloshed amber liquid down his arm. “If I could kill every damn human on this planet, I would.”

She eyed him coolly. “My brother is human.”

“I know.” He shrugged, flashing a fanged grin. “So, how’d you do it?”

Her spine stiffened, her veins turning to icy sludge. “I’ve already said I don’t want to talk about it.” She shuddered at the memory of the taste of Gus’s coppery blood filling her mouth when she’d shifted into a wolf, biting down on his neck. She hadn’t meant to kill him, but the big, drunk bartender had nearly knocked her unconscious when he’d thrown her against the table and torn off her clothes. Instinct had taken over, and she’d reacted as a trapped, feral wolf.

His smile faded as he leaned toward her, his eyes shifting from brown to gold. “You realize I’m the fucking chieftain, don’t you?”

Tor and Van both growled until Vidar leaned back, his eyes turning back to brown.

Even though her heart was racing, she forced a note of indifference into her voice. “I know what you are.”

Stupid fucking cunt! Vidar’s virulent words smacked her like a frying pan to the head. Vidar grabbed his steak knife, a look of pure murder in his eyes when he growled at her.

Wow. What a dick! No fucking way was she breeding with this asshat’s sons.

Tor threw a protective arm in front of her, his voice a low, ominous rumble. “Put down the knife, Vidar.”

“Father, did you see beef prices have gone up?” Raine asked, in a voice so upbeat, it had to be forced.

She eyed Raine, who paid her no heed as he stared down his father. Though she was grateful for the second alpha’s intervention, she wondered why his alpha brother didn’t intervene as well.

“Shut up,” Vidar slurred toward his son before pointing the knife at her once more. “You’re a mouthy bitch.” And you need to be taught respect, his thought projected into her head.

When Vidar glared at her, it was as if a thousand tiny spiders were crawling across her skin. Teach her respect? How about she teach the asshole some manners?

Tor’s growl was eclipsed by Raine’s roar, his eyes shifting and his nose lengthening as he jumped up and drove his steak knife into the table beside his belligerent father.

Vidar wrapped his fingers around the wooden handle of Raine’s knife, jerking it out of the table. “Stand down, son,” he whispered.

Annie shivered. In that whisper, she felt the force of Vidar’s ominous threat in the marrow of her bones. For some reason, she was more terrified of Vidar’s threats to her mates than to her. The hair stood up on the back of her neck, and her protective instinct roared to life.

Refusing to stand down, Raine picked up another knife, chest heaving, the scar that ran across his cheek turning from a pale white to a pulsing red while he glared at his father.

When Vidar pushed back his chair, Annie knew she had to act.

“I ripped his goddamn throat out.” She jumped to her feet, pointing her fork at Vidar’s chest. “Call me a bitch again, and I’ll show you how I did it.”
