Kye's Heart

Roxie's Protectors

Author(s): Marisa Chenery

Kye’s idea of fun doesn’t include toting Roxie’s three-month-old daughter to the zoo, but like the good little Protector he is, Kye travels to the land of exotic furballs with pup in tow...then smacks himself for not heading to the zoo ages ago. There, dressed in drab brown and looking more gorgeous than any woman he’s ever seen, Kye finds his mate.

Being a zookeeper, Michaela is used to soothing the savage beast...not screaming babies. Feeling sorry for the hottie who’s looking more panicked by the second, she’s quick to offer her assistance in calming the little bundle of adorable he’s holding. Of course Kye doesn’t hesitate to show his appreciation by asking her out and giving her a kiss that sends her heart racing.

While Kye struggles to tell Michaela about his penchant for howling at the moon, he manages to toss her right into the middle of his secretive life as a Protector and all the fangs that entails. The question is: Can Michaela tolerate any more fur in her life, or is she going to trample all over Kye’s heart?


Another five minutes passed before the baby whimpered as she sucked even harder on her fingers. Kye looked around for a bench to sit on. There wasn’t one in the general vicinity so he kept walking, hoping to find one farther on. Once he found what he looked for, Nevaeh’s whimpers had turned into full-fledged cries. And she’d completely given up on sucking her hand.

Feeling a bit desperate, Kye sat, pulled Nevaeh out of the carrier and held her against his chest. He put the diaper bag down beside him and opened it. He pulled out what Roxie had called an “on-the-go” bottle warmer and unzipped the smaller container. By now the baby’s cries were almost ear-shattering to his sensitive hearing.

He noticed Nevaeh’s wails of unhappiness had drawn the stares of the other people visiting the zoo. Not liking it, Kye put the warmer down and patted the baby’s back as Roxie had shown him. That seemed to quiet her a bit. He stopped the motion and went to reach for the bottle, which set Nevaeh off again.

“You look as if you need some help.” The woman’s voice came from a spot close to him.

Without looking up from where he reached, Kye said, “I need to get the bottle out of this warmer, but Nevaeh isn’t cooperating with me.”

“Here, let me.”

A figure moved in front of him, blocking the sun. As her fingers brushed his, he filtered her scent from the stronger animal ones around him. It hit him like a ton of bricks. His head jerked up, and his cock went instantly hard, straining against the front of his jeans as his mating urge kicked in. Kye had to bite back a growl of need as he looked into the face of his would-be mate.

She was pretty in a cute way. She smiled, showing even white teeth as she returned his stare, her light blue eyes friendly. Her long, straight black hair had been pulled back into a high ponytail. He ran his gaze over her body as she straightened with the bottle in hand. It was hard to tell what it looked like underneath the zoo uniform she wore, but from what he could see of her arms not covered by the short-sleeved shirt, they were slim and toned. He assumed the rest of her would be as well, but the only way to be sure was for him to strip her out of her clothes, which his fingers itched to do. The baby let out a loud wail, breaking some of the sexual haze that had descended over him.

His would-be mate held out the bottle. “I think you’d better feed her.”

He nodded as he clumsily settled Nevaeh into the crook of his arm. He reached for it, his fingers once again brushing the woman’s, causing his cock to jerk. “Thanks.” He placed the nipple against Nevaeh’s lips. She opened her mouth and greedily latched on to it.

“Is this the first time you’ve been out with your daughter since she was born?”

Kye’s head snapped up. “She’s not my daughter. I’m her Pro…uncle.”

“So you’re babysitting,” she said.

“You could say that.” At that moment, Nevaeh decided to squirm against him, and what sounded like rolling thunder, emanated from her diaper along with the sound of something Kye did not want to handle in a million years.

Some of what he felt must have shown on his face, because his would-be mate laughed. “Why do I get the feeling you’ve never changed a diaper before?”

He looked at the baby, then jerked his head away as a foul odor hit him, making him wish he didn’t have a werewolf’s acute sense of smell. “Oh, Nevaeh.” She continued to contentedly suck on her bottle as if there wasn’t a stinky mess in her drawers. Kye lifted his gaze to the woman in front of him and answered her question. “Because I haven’t.” The idea of having to deal with his first diaper changing horrified him.

It also cooled his libido somewhat, even though the mating urge was still there, unable to be ignored. Kye felt pulled in two different directions. He wanted to be with the one who was meant to be his, but Nevaeh was his responsibility. He’d opened his mouth to say something that would prevent his would-be mate from walking away when she beat him to it.

“How about I take pity on you and help you with that too? There’s an office close by we can use.”

He nodded and smiled. “Thanks, I’d appreciate that.”

Her gaze seemed to latch on to his mouth, making Kye wish they weren’t in such a public place, or that he didn’t hold a baby in his arms. As she stared at him, he took the opportunity to run his gaze over her face, wanting nothing more than to taste her kissable lips. He wanted to see if she’d moan into his mouth as he explored her or use his hair to pull him closer, becoming more of the aggressor.

At a sound that was a cross between a moan and sigh, Kye lifted his gaze to her eyes and saw her pupils had dilated. There was also a slight flush across her cheeks. He took a deep breath and detected the subtle scent of her arousal. He ground his teeth to hold back a wolf’s howl that built inside him.

She gave herself a small shake, as if to break the spell between them. She cleared her throat. “Ah, if you want to come with me, I’ll take you to that office.”

He nodded and pulled the bottle out of Nevaeh’s mouth only long enough to sling the diaper bag over his shoulder, then stood. “I’m Kye, by the way.”

“I’m Michaela.”

Kye fell into step with Michaela and prayed she wouldn’t look down and see the raging hard-on he had. Having her think he was some kind of perv wasn’t how he wanted to start things off with her.
