Excerpt:

“I’m a cougar. A cougar on the prowl.”

Lexi and Bay Jamenson cracked up laughing, almost falling off the bed they were sitting on surrounded by piles of discarded dresses and pants, but Emeline didn’t find it funny. Oh no. Not at all.

The two of them were her friends. An odd thing to say after so many years of staying within the elder community of eight or so wolves who had grown bored of each other ages ago. Now Bay and Lexi were there to help her dress for her date with Noah.

Her date.

With Noah.

Goddess, what had she been thinking?

“I’m a cougar, ladies. Isn’t that what it’s called? Some past-her-prime woman who chases after young men so she can have her way with them before tossing them away for a younger version? They want all that virility and energy, and want to remember what it’s like to be youthful. A cougar. I’m a cougar.”

“Oh, honey, please stop calling yourself a cougar,” Lexi said, tears streaming from her eyes.

Emeline put her fists on her hips and scowled. “That’s what I am, aren’t I?”

“No, Emeline, you’re a wolf,” Bay said, clearly trying not to smile and failing badly. “A female wolf about to go on a date with a very sexy male wolf. Stop calling yourself a cougar. Though, oh my god, that’s hilarious.”

Excerpt:

“Thank you, Noah. I know I’m being stupid by not accepting your help. You do so much for me, and yet I push you away. I just hate that my mind wanders so much that I forget to take care of myself. I’m getting so old and senile it’s a wonder that I’m not put out to pasture.”

His wolf snarled. He set the salmon and milk jug on the counter and turned, cupping her face. She let out a little gasp, but he ignored it because he needed to get the words out.

“You are not senile. Your mind works more than any other wolf I know. You’re working your butt off for others, Em. So what if you forget to eat? People younger than you tend to forget what they’re supposed to be doing for themselves when they’re focused on other things. It makes you scatterbrained. Not old. Get the thought out of your head that you need to be, as you put it, put out to pasture, or anything like that. You got me? You don’t get to talk about yourself like that in my presence. You saved us all, Em. You did it with your mind, your heart, and your strength. You’re allowed to forget a meal or two.”

She swallowed hard, and it took all within him not to bend and brush his lips against hers. She wasn’t ready for that. And come to think of it, he wasn’t sure if he was either. Because once he did, he wouldn’t be able to stop.

Excerpt:

“Go out with me, Em.”

She froze, her eyes wide. The salmon popped on the grill beside her, but neither of them moved to take care of it.

“Out? Like out out?”

For someone who’d lived centuries, she sure didn’t understand everything she thought she did. No worries, though, he’d teach her. He’d show her everything.

He set down the knife, turned down the grill behind her—the action forcing her to move closer to him—then quirked his lips.

“Yes, out out. You and me. On a date.”

“But why?”

He tried not to wince at that but failed miserably. He could have said he wanted to go out with her because they were mates and fated to be together. That once they did, once they mated, they would each be destined for a future filled with bliss, babies, and lots of time panting.

Considering he wasn’t even sure she could feel her wolf wanting him that way, he had a feeling he should keep those thoughts to himself.

“Why?”

“No, no, that’s not what I meant. Oh, Noah, I’m sure a nice young wolf would go out with you. You don’t have to pity date the old woman who lives alone.”

Okay, now he was getting angry. “Don’t patronize me, Em. I asked you out. You. No one else. I want to take you out on a date. You’re not an old woman who doesn’t deserve to be cherished. You’re Emeline. An Elder and a fucking amazing woman. So please, come out with me.”

Emeline might have been alive hundreds of years, but she’s never really lived. Using her knowledge and research, she helped save the Redwood Pack from devastation. However, she’s never felt whole. Not since she lost her mate so long ago. Now there is a new, younger wolf, entering her life and it will take more than her nose in a book to figure out the warmth in her heart is much more than a promise of a new feeling. It’s fate.

Noah has known Emeline was his mate since he first saw her, only he doesn’t know if she feels the same. He’s always been on the fringes of those in power in the Pack and has enjoyed it. Now he’s become an integral piece and wants to find a way to bring Emeline with him. Her reluctance in dating a much younger wolf isn’t the only hurdle in his way.

When he finally takes the step, he’ll have to pray she finds the connection and lets fate save them both. As they find their way to a mating bond, a player from the past is out to hold them back and everything they thought they’d had might be lost forever.
