EXCERPT: JAMES ROBERTS FROM 1302 – THE ALPHA
Perched on the edge of the rooftop, I lift my head and breathe in deeply. Canine. Another sniff. Domestic. No trouble. Just a young couple walking their dog. I spot them as they round a corner and stroll toward downtown. Below, a baby cries in one of the apartments, and her mother sings softly to calm her.
I'm Carmine's version of Batman. I'm its ever vigilant silent protector. I glance at the gorgeous woman to my left. Okay, one of them. And maybe sometimes we're not so silent. We've gotten a few noise complaints ourselves.
How a geek like me ever landed a magnificent woman like Stefanie is a mystery. Wolf magnetism? I don't know. She's been through so much with her pack and yet she remains so strong. I'm in awe. Yet all that matters now is that she loves me as I love her.
Sensing me staring at her, Stefanie pounces on me – BAM! - and pins me on the roof. I grunt as we land. The gravel digs into my skin, but it won't be the first time I had to pick stones out of my back. She grins wickedly before she kisses me, and I'm lost. I try to roll her over, but there's no way she's going to let me have the dominant position. Not that I mind one bit. I'm one damn lucky werewolf to have her in my life.
