A wolf-shifter and his powerful human.
Reaper had expected it to be an easy assignment. Break into a biotech facility with minimum security and rescue a group of immortals who were subject to deadly experiments and eliminate those who might try to fight back. But the moment he walked into the glass prison and spotted a human woman being held with the immortals, his mission changed.
She became his mission.
Before Reaper had a chance to explain that he was there to help her, she blinded him and the rest of his team and slipped away. Although she had escaped him, a protectiveness that he’d never felt washed over him, and he became determined to find her.
Ara has always depended on herself, but there was something about the shifter that made her want to trust him. She recognized him as someone who was capable of protecting her as well as understanding her secrets without turning her away, but before she could allow herself to trust him, she ran.
But with no resources and running out of ideas about how to protect herself, will she be able to lower her defenses and allow the shifter to help her?

Ara put her hand over her heart and blinked. “Why Axel, are you saying that you weren’t flirting with me?”
He sobered when Reaper’s low growl rumbled across the room.
“No, I mean yes…hell.” Ax rubbed his forehead.
They had never seen Ax so flummoxed by a woman before, and when Ax looked sheepish, a ripple of laughter traveled through the room.
Ara threw the roll, which Xander snagged out of the air before he smiled at her. Xander’s shy smile was returned, and Reaper could see the quiet man was as taken with Ara as much as everyone else in the room.
“Don’t worry about it, Ax. I wouldn’t even know if you were flirting with me or not, but you are an easy target.”
Murmurs erupted at her statement, and Reaper reached for her hand. He didn’t want her to know that Ax was outright flirting with her despite Reaper’s repeated threats to separate his head from his body. Before he could say anything, the others beat him to the punch.
“You’re beautiful, which I’m sure Reaper has told you many times,” Gunnar said.
“I agree,” Hunter said.
Ghost, Kane, Xander and Seth murmured their agreement. It looked as if they were holding their breaths as they waited for her response, but she remained quiet. She glanced around the room before she smiled and commented.
“Coming from a group of assassins who probably moonlight as underwear models, I’m going to take your opinions with a grain of salt.” She paused for a moment and looked around again. “Are you underwear models?”
