Eli vowed he would never tie himself to one woman. But when he sees a lone werewolf female at Wulf's Den with six large male werewolves at her back, he finds himself instantly attracted to her.
Saskia and her brothers-in-arms have come to Wulf's Den in search of the foretold one, the one they have trained most of their long lives to protect. What she didn't expect was to have one of her visions while there. Or to see that she and the male mortal who looks at her with hunger in his eyes would eventually end up in bed together.
As Eli and Saskia try to sort through the feelings of an unexpected mating, a new enemy rises to threaten Roxie in her position as the foretold one. An enemy who could end their mating prematurely.

He sucked in a sharp breath as Saskia turned her violet-eyed gaze his way. The tip of her tongue came out to wet her lips. Eli resisted the urge to reach down and adjust the front of his pants to make room for his erection. As if she knew what it did to him, she licked her lips once more. He bit back a moan as he thought of how it would feel to have her use her tongue on the part of him that throbbed, begging for attention. Before Saskia could answer, Beowulf arrived.
“Royce tells me you wish to see Roxie.”
Saskia turned to face Beowulf. “Yes.”
“Well, this isn’t the time nor place. We like to keep pack business out of the nightclub.”
“Then where can we meet?”
Beowulf handed Saskia a piece of paper. “Here’s my cell phone number. Call tomorrow afternoon and we’ll arrange a time for you to talk to Roxie.”
Saskia nodded. “Fine.”
Eli watched as Beowulf walked away while Saskia and her brothers-in-arms made their way to the nightclub’s exit. He wasn’t ready to let Saskia leave. He wanted a chance to get to know her better, but with the six men at her back, he didn’t know if they would let him anywhere near her. Deciding he would be an idiot to just let her walk away, he got up and rushed after her.
Outside, he spotted her walking down the sidewalk toward the nightclub’s parking lot. He called out to her. “Saskia, wait.”
She stopped and signaled for her men to go on without her. Eli quickened his pace until he stood in front of her. Her gaze swept down his body, lingering on the bulge in his pants before she looked him in the eyes. “Do you want something?”
Oh, he wanted something all right. He wanted her naked beneath him as he sank his aching cock into her wet pussy. He wanted to taste and stroke every inch of her. “I was wondering if you had some free time, if you’d like to go out for dinner sometime.”
Saskia gave him a half smile. “Are you asking me out on a date?”
“Yes. Isn’t that how it’s usually done when a man wants to get to know a woman better?”
“Not where I come from. No offense, but I don’t usually go out on dates with male mortals.”
Because I just don’t.”
Eli took a step closer. Her eyes dilated as she drew in a deep breath of air. “What kind of answer is that? You have to have some reason. We’re really no different from a male werewolf.” He shifted even closer so they stood toe-to-toe. Saskia’s eyes glowed mutedly, telling him more than anything else would that she could be more than a little interested in him.
Saskia swallowed. “I find I’m not attracted to mortals.”
“Well, maybe you just haven’t met the right one.”
“Let me guess. You think you’re the mortal to help change my mind?”
“Of course.” Eli focused on her lips. Her tongue came out to wet them. His cock jerked at the sight of it running along her kissable lips. With a groan, he said, “The hell with it.”
Taking a page out of Billie’s book, Eli pulled Saskia to him as he took her lips in a kiss. He threaded his fingers through the hair at the back of her head and angled his mouth against hers. Much to his pleasure Saskia didn’t push him away. Instead she opened her mouth and sucked his tongue inside. He moaned as he dragged her closer and ground his erection against her hip. A second later, he gasped as Saskia threaded her fingers through his hair and pushed him until his back slammed up against a brick wall. She then kissed him for all she was worth. Lost in a sexual haze, he forgot where they were until a deep voice called Saskia’s name. Reluctantly they pulled apart.
Jager stood a foot away with his arms crossed over his broad chest. He shook his head. “Saskia, if you’re done checking the mortal’s tonsils, we’d like to leave.”
Stepping out of Eli’s embrace, Saskia nodded. “I’m coming.”
Jager snorted. “Yeah, I could see you were well on your way.”
Saskia glared at him before she turned back to Eli. “I have to go.”
As she moved to walked away, Eli stopped her. “When can I see you again?”
“I don’t know.”
“Can I at least have your phone number?” When she hesitated, he said, “Okay, I won’t push, but if you change your mind, you can find me most days at my family’s gym, York Fitness.”
“See you around, Eli.” With that, Saskia disappeared around the corner.
Eli blew out a deep breath. That had gone well. Not. He’d sounded like a desperate teenager begging the girl he liked to go out with him. He usually didn’t make such an ass of himself around women. He pulled the ends of his button-down shirt out of his slacks to try to hide the raging hard-on he sported, then turned to go back inside Wulf’s Den. He needed a couple more drinks before the night was through if he planned on getting any sleep. With the taste of Saskia still in his mouth, he doubted he’d be able to without her filling his dreams.
