Werewolf Nate Stanford is riddled with guilt over his brother Rick’s death…so much so that when he meets his mate—Deputy Sheriff Jared Ambrose—he rejects him, believing he is not good enough for Jared and not worthy of being loved. The only thing that matters to him is buying his childhood home in honour of his brother’s memory.
Since their father died, Jared Ambrose has taken on responsibility for his younger brother, whose drinking binges are constantly getting him into trouble. Jared’s only hope of saving his brother is finding them a place they can call home. Jared wants to make Sheriff, but believes he’ll never be elected if the residents of his new town find out he is gay. When he realises Nate is his mate, he knows it’s not possible for them to be together.
But trouble in their small town and unrest in the supernatural council force them together and make them question their decisions. Can these two stubborn men conquer their demons and overcome all obstacles to carve out a life together?
“Let me get this straight. You’re saying someone stole your cow?”
Joe Walker’s eyes practically bulged out of their sockets. “My bull! Jesus Christ, did you hear a word I just said, boy?” the old man fumed. “He was my prized, black Aberdeen Angus bull! Cost me near on ten thousand dollars.”
Jared nearly swallowed his tongue. Ten thousand bucks, for a piece of meat? “You’re shitting me.”
While Jared watched, the vein in Joe’s forehead pulsed. “No, I am not shitting you. Someone stole him. What ya gonna do about it?”
Joe’s face was puce. Jesus, if the man wasn’t careful he was going to have an aneurism. Jared needed to calm him down.
“How do you know he was stolen, sir?” Jared asked. “Are you sure he didn’t escape? Wander into one of the neighbouring properties maybe?”
Well shit, that didn’t work. Joe’s eyes got even wider. “Where the hell is the sheriff? I can’t deal with you. You’re as dumb as a box of hammers.”
Jared tried to ignore the old man’s insult. “Sheriff Ferguson is busy on another call. If you want matter investigated, you’re going to have to deal with me. Okay, can you tell me how you know the cow…uh…bull was taken?”
Joe threw up his hands. “There was no hole in the fence,” he said very slowly as though he were addressing a young child. “The gate was open. Someone took ‘im.”
“Are you sure the gate wasn’t left open by accident? Maybe by someone that works here?”
“What sort of operation do you think I’m running here? I’ve been in ranching my entire life. The cowboys that work for me are experienced men. Not a one of them would be as damn stupid as to leave the gate open. You need to go and question them Morgan brothers. Them boys have got it in fer me.”
Jared wrote the name down on his notepad but there wasn’t a lot he could do with it. “Do you have any reason to suspect these Morgan brothers?”
The old man stiffened. “Had me a few crossed words with them over the past year is all.”
Jared sighed. That didn’t help him much. “You can’t go around accusing people without proof, sir.”
“It was them, I’m telling you. Talk to them, look on their land. I know they’ve got my Dipsy.”
Dipsy? What the hell name was that for a bull? Jared had to stifle a chuckle. “Do you have a first name for these brothers?”
“Of course, there’s Kelan and Co—”
“Kelan, Kelan Morgan?” Jared interrupted. “As in Alpha Morgan?”
Joe’s face paled. “Well, I’m not saying it was him exactly, but I wouldn’t mind betting it was Luke or that ass-bandit he’s shacking up with. He’s got it in for me since I fired him. I’m telling you, it was him.”
Jared felt his anger rise but he tried to tamp it down. This was the exact reason he couldn’t let people find out he was gay. There were too many haters in a small town like Wolf Creek. Too many people who would never accept him for who he was. Jared needed to ingratiate himself into the community if he wanted to be elected sheriff. He couldn’t afford to get on the wrong side of folks in town, and he certainly didn’t need to get on the wrong side of his alpha.
Now that Jared came to think about it, he was sure he’d heard about the trouble between Alpha Morgan’s youngest brother, Luke, and Joe’s son. What was his name again? Ethan. That was it. Seemed Joe was holding the Morgans responsible for their son’s incarceration…although from what Jared remembered of the story, Ethan had been the one at fault.
“This is the third bull gone in a month…third! I’m telling you someone has it in for me, and it’s got to be that faggot.”
Jared winced at the term then pursed his lips. While he stared at Joe, trying to think of a way to placate him, his cell started vibrating in his pocket.
“Yeah. It was him,” Joe continued. “Him or Luke anyways.”
The phone kept buzzing. Shit.
“Has to be one of them. No doubt in my mind, and I wouldn’t rule Kelan out, either.”
Jared pulled the cell out of his pocket and held it up. “I’m sorry, sir, but I’m going to have to take this. It’s important.”
Joe huffed out a long sigh and fixed Jared with a cold, mean stare, but thankfully he didn’t say anything. Jared walked a few feet away from the old man and answered the call. “Jared.”
“Jared, it’s Pete. You’d better get down here. There’s trouble.”
Jared cursed under his breath. “Is it Tristan again?”
“Yeah. Wait a minute…aww fuck!”
Pete’s voice cut off as Jared heard glass smashing in the background. “Pete? Pete? What’s going on?”The line was dead.
Thanks for stopping by everyone!
