If you like hunks for the holidays, I invite you to take Etienne for a ride... a sleigh ride, that is! Etienne is an Alpha werewolf, the sexy eldest Robichaux brother of my Draicon werewolf novels.
In Taken by the Alpha Wolf, which is a prequel to my Draicon series, Etienne hunts down his future mate to protect her from drug dealers, and to claim her at last in the flesh. Taken is available on Amazon for only 99 cents.
Here's an excerpt: Copyright 2011 by Bonnie Vanak
“There she is.”
Crouched down, Etienne Robichaux peered through the thick trees at his target. On a narrow path cutting through thick brush of the Florida Everglades, the sleek white wolf nosed through the bay head.
A thicket of cocoplum, red bay and wax myrtle provided excellent coverage. Overhead the March sun was brilliant and warm, no clouds in the sharp blue sky.
Perfect day for an abduction.
Green camouflage pants, an olive T-shirt and jungle boots protected his body against branches and sharp sawgrass. Etienne ran a finger along the bandana covering his light brown hair. Hunkered down beside him also in camouflage, his two younger brothers studied the prey.
Three Draicon werewolves on recon… for another Draicon wolf. The image would’ve amused him, had the situation been less grim.
“You sure that’s her?” Alexandre wondered.
“I know her scent, could pick it up in a garbage chute.” He drew in a deep lungful of the delicate fragrance of fresh raindrops on lilies cutting through the swamp’s more earthy smells.
Gabriel shook his head. “She may fight you.”
“Doesn’t matter. The intel said they could come after her at any time.” Etienne’s pulse raced. Getting caught in heavy crossfire during the
Lebanon op had been nothing
compared to hearing that news. Hell he could take all the tight situations
threatening his ass when he’d been a U.S. Navy SEAL and retained his usual
calm, tight control. None of them compared to the gut-wrenching fear of losing
Before even having her, so to speak.
“Her father,” Alex began. “You warned him, tried to reason with him?”
Etienne snorted. “Wouldn’t listen to me. Damnit, it was like talking with a rock. This is the only way. I’m taking control.”
Alex looked up, his lean face tight.
“Screw it, mon frere. Go for her,” Alex said, growling.
Gabriel’s eyes flashed amber, signaling the emergence of his wolf. “Do it.”
