Avenger’s Heat

Copyright © 2014 Katie Reus

“What’s up?” Angelo asked, his voice gravelly with sleep.

“Just wanted to let you know we found another body. Erin and I are headed out now. One of us will call you later with details.” Technically they didn’t owe a call to either of them, but Angelo was his packmate and Noah respected that. He knew Erin did too, even if she was here on assignment from the Council.

Noah still wasn’t sure why Angelo was here at all. Brianna had helped out their pack very recently with information gathering and she’d killed one of the bastards who’d targeted and hurt his pack. When her leaders learned about what was going on here, they’d wanted her to check things out too. As a member of the Fianna, legendary fae warriors, Brianna might be slight and almost ethereal looking, but she could hold her own against anyone. He’d heard from Erin how she’d killed a member of the Antiparanormal League by harnessing some kind of lightninglike energy with her hands. Angelo had practically insisted to Connor that he be allowed to come with Brianna, which surprised Noah since the blond female didn’t seem to even like him.

When her head popped out from behind the doorway Angelo was standing in, Noah’s eyebrows raised. Okay, maybe she did like him. She ducked under the arm Angelo had braced against the frame. “What body? Do you know who it is? How was she killed?”

Noah shook his head. “I have no details right now other than a body was discovered.” Well, he knew the name of the deceased but it wasn’t his place to tell either of them.

Angelo wrapped an arm around Brianna’s shoulders, pulling her close. He murmured something in her ear so low even Noah couldn’t hear with his extrasensory hearing.

Avenger's Heat by Katie Reus

Brianna stiffened under his hold, seeming uncomfortable with it, and slightly nudged him with her elbow. Whispering, she said, “Just because you’re showing me what sexual pleasure is all about does not mean you control me.”

Noah choked on air and tried to cover it with a cough, but Angelo glared at him. It was obvious Brianna had meant for her comment to be private, but she didn’t have the extrasensory abilities they had and she likely hadn’t realized just how loud a whisper was to him.

Making a hasty exit, he hurried toward the front of the house, knowing Erin would be waiting for him. Sure enough her cherry red Challenger idled in the driveway. Instead of heading to the passenger side, he tapped on her window.

Rolling it down, she raised an eyebrow at him. “You’re not driving.”

“I know where we’re going. It’s in the swamp.” She might have excellent night vision, but driving in the swamp was a pain in the ass even in the daytime. Alligators didn’t care about roads and often took naps in the middle of them.

She shrugged. “You can be my navigator.”

“Erin—”

I’m driving. You drove practically the whole way here.”

“Because you needed to research.”

“Exactly. I don’t need your help anymore. We’ll get a rental if you want to drive so bad, but you are not driving this.” She looked away from him now, her hands on the wheel at ten and two, ready to leave.

Despite the reality of what they were on their way to see, a ghost of a smile tugged at the corner of his lips. She was so stubborn. Knowing it was a useless argument, he got in on the passenger side of the car.

“So, you get any sleep?” he asked as she steered away from the house.

Swallowing hard, she gave him a haunted look. It was just for an instant, then her eyes were guarded again as she shook her head. “No, I . . . had a dream about the day you found me.”

Holy shit. Erin never talked about that day. Ever. And she rarely showed any weakness. By admitting she’d had a dream—or more likely nightmare—about that dark day, she was basically doing that. “I’m sorry, Erin.” He didn’t know what else to say and felt like a jackass with the meaningless apology.

“Don’t be,” she said quietly, the words almost a sigh. “You were there, right before I woke up. Your face is never clear in my dreams, but your presence is. I’m . . . glad you’re here for this case, Noah.” It sounded as if it almost pained her to admit that.

But he’d needed to hear the words. Needed to know she actually did want him in her life. Because he sure as hell needed her.

Avenger's Heat by Katie Reus

Available February 4, 2014 from Signet/Penguin

About this Book:

To truly have her, he must free her from her dark secret….

Enforcer Erin Flynn has dedicated her life to protecting her kind. But keeping her heart safe from Noah Campbell, the smoking-hot shifter who saved her life last year, is more difficult. The deadly beauty would love to sink into his arms and become his mate, but she knows she can’t—he must never know about her dark past.

When Erin is sent to investigate the disappearances of pregnant shifters in New Orleans, Erin and Noah find themselves involved in a mystery more sinister than anyone expected. And as Erin delves further into the crimes, chilling information about her own past is revealed. The people who wanted her dead in the first place are trying to finish the job, and Noah wants nothing more than to shield her from harm. But can Erin truly trust Noah and let him see the wounded beast she’s hidden for so long?

    Hi ladies, thanks for stopping by and reading! To answer your questions:

    Heather, I have a vivid imagination and Erin’s been in this series since book one. It was just time to write her story :)

    ErinF, I don’t really have a ritual or anything. I usually guzzle coffee in the mornings so maybe that counts!
