Bruno returns to his pack only to find utter devastation. The woman he loves is all alone and there is an evil creeping in the darkness of the forest. Being a God fearing werewolf, he takes it upon himself to confront the evil and drive it back to hell.
Serena’s heart is tied to an outlaw. All her life she has been an outcast. Evil is tormenting her and the pack. Her only hope is her motorcycle riding, biker werewolf, Bruno. Together they will face their nightmares and goodness will prevail.
“I-I’m a mess. How can you stand to be so close to me? I stink.”
“You smell wonderful. The past is dead now. You can make a clean start.”
She chuckled. Her deep-throated timbre stirred his desire. This was the woman he remembered. “You always were a horrible liar.”
“The Lord does not let any falsehoods pass my lips.”
“Hmm?” She arched an eyebrow at him.
Before he could respond, she gave him a sly smile, then took off through the trees. He was after her tail in a second. Serena possessed the speed, the stealth, and the strength of a wolf, even if she couldn’t switch her shape. Her anomaly was the real reason she had been shunned by the rest of the pack. They feared it would rub off on them. Terrance used her inability to shift forms against her with the pack. Her one saving grace was that she was a healer, and that was a rare commodity among any wolf pack. Her trail led to the edge of the lake several miles from the cave where they had swum as youngsters. Serena’s clothes were littered along the ground.
When he gazed into the smooth water, all he saw was her head bobbing below the surface. His inner wolf rumbled while he began stripping. A carnal urge took control of him, and he left his clothes beside hers. It had been eons since he’d gone into the water to cleanse himself and be baptized. He slipped into the water, a few feet from shore, and marveled at the beauty of the scenery. The moon above filled his soul with warm light and bathed Serena in its brilliance. The mountains surrounded them on all sides, and the stars twinkled above them. Such wonder and magnificence. How could evil find this place? How could it defile such a wondrous landscape?
He bowed his head and prayed. “Dear Lord, purge my soul of any impurities. Keep evil and harm away from those I cherish. Embrace the souls of my departed family and welcome them into heaven. Help me find the bastard who did all of this. In Your name, they all shall be avenged. Help me to see the light and not fall into the grips of the demon. Help me—”
Serena placed her hand on his shoulder. He stopped mid-prayer. In the moonlight, her ebony skin glistened now that she was clean. Her teeth flashed white, and her dark eyes glowed with desire in the dim moonlight. “What are you doing?”
“Declaring revenge on the foul creature who has taken our family from us and proclaiming my thanks for all the beauty which surrounds me.”
