Vegas Mates, Book 2
Successful, but lonely, Margaret Taylor finds her mate in the body of a man she least expects it in. A bear! Her human half tries to reason her way out of the match, but her wolf is through with her excuses. Crossing the species line isn’t unheard of, but it’s not often done.
Try as she might to avoid him, fate makes sure the big grizzly bear is nearby at all times. But, will his presence be enough to protect her from the evil stalking her?
The power of the magick between them can’t be avoided. But, Scott O’Hearn thinks the beautiful Taylor wolf is doing a fine job of just that —avoiding him. He can’t help he’s a bear shifter and he’s determined to convince her it doesn’t matter. She is his mate and he’s waited over a century to find her.
Will he convince Margaret she’s his true match before it’s too late?
According to Sam, the Renata Demakis was spending a permanent vacation somewhere undisclosed under heavy guard. Peter Demakis moved her after several more losing-control-of-her-wolf episodes. Very few people outside the Demakis family had witnessed Renata losing control, but Sam had used the term ‘rabid’ when describing her mother’s behavior. After coming home from one visit, all Sam would tell her was that she was ‘never going back.’ The mother she’d grown up with was gone.
There were recorded cases of royals losing their minds. They were the only ones really arrogant enough to try shutting off communication with their animal souls. If that was what was happening with Renata, the Council would judge her—harshly. Margaret shuddered. Appearing before the Council was likened to the Inquisition. People didn’t come back from it. They were killed or permanently locked up. It wasn’t like a castle in Transylvania type situation, but it might have well as been.
Peter Demakis was trying to protect his wife’s condition from being exposed to the Council. No one could fault him for that. The pack would protect him. No matter what. Her dad would be loyal to a fault and the pack would follow his lead. Trouble had been brewing for a while and this situation was going to escalate things, especially since Chase had refused the Council seat.
Glancing up from her glass of wine, she caught Hallie Demakis’s gaze. She waved and offered a smile. Hallie gave her a little wave back.
“Why don’t you get up and socialize?”
Hush. I’m happy right here.
“Watching everyone else?”
She sipped her wine and ignored her wolf. There was nothing wrong with watching. She caught lots of details others missed because she was good at it. She hadn’t become a VIP Hostess Manager at the Mirage Casino by luck. Sure she could gab and smooze with the best of them when her job needed her to, but that wasn’t how she preferred to be most of the time.
