From New York to New Orleans, Jax and Katrina embark on a dark and sensual adventure, discovering sorcery that could eradicate his entire pack. With their lives in danger, they search for clues to release her from the ominous prophesy. Will they survive the predator that comes ever closer to destroying their lives? And will Jax acknowledge the bond to a woman he never imagined he could trust to be his mate?

Jake gave a sideways glance to Katrina and back to Jax. “So, uh, just to recap about last night. Everything’s okay? Quintus looked like he bit you pretty hard.”
“My mate doesn’t listen well,” Jax slowly spread the cheese onto the bread, his eyes trained on his knife.
“You’re both overreacting. I’m perfectly fine. We got the information we needed, didn’t we?” Katrina unconsciously reached behind her neck where Quintus had bitten her.
“Very soon she will experience a lesson that she will not forget,” Jax warned. His eyes went to Jake who shook his head in agreement.
“You know I love ya, Kat, but Jax is right. There’s a reason he’s the Alpha of this pack. You can’t just ignore him when he tells you what to do in these situations. It’s even worse that you challenged him. You’re his mate.”
“I’m not his mate yet,” she asserted.
“You will be my mate.” Katrina’s words cut through Jax, and he couldn’t identify the emotion that followed. Anger? Arousal? The growl of his wolf reverberated in his mind, urging him to take her again. While he hadn’t known her long enough to fall in love, the commitment of their bond would come in time.
“You know what will happen if we mate. I can’t risk it.” Katrina pursed her lips and set her food on a plate. “And as far as me, not listening as you put it. I belong to no one but myself. I’m an Alpha’s daughter, a sister. What makes you think submission to your will is in my blood?”
“Because my little wolf…” Jax didn’t miss a beat as he drove his fingers through her hair at the nape of her neck. Tugging her locks, he tilted her head backward, exposing her throat. He leaned in, his lips inches from hers. “That little mark on your neck is mine. You are mine. Our mating will happen. Don’t. Test. Me.”
The tense whisper of his statement died as Jax captured her lips. His bruising kiss was met with passion. Katrina gasped into his mouth, returning his advance, biting and sucking at her mate. Fingernails raked down over his shoulder, tearing at his skin, and the sting reminded him that Katrina harbored a wild nature, one that might be impossible to tame.
“And I think that’s my cue to leave.” Jake laughed and pushed up from the table. “As much as I enjoy a good show, I can’t figure out if this is going to be super-hot or more like gladiators. Yeah, I’ll catch up with you in a bit.”
