Part 1

I dashed through the brush, darting through trees, dodging stumps and fallen limbs; loving the feel of the wind as it blew through my coat. The rumble of thunder shook the ground beneath my paws. Lightening lit up the black sky. I veered off my normal path when the rain started to fall, wanting the night to last as long as possible. 

I needed the cool, crisp air to clear my head. Work was hectic. A tense four year relationship with my ex fiancé had ended. Because of our inability to work it out the future of two packs now hung in the balance. A fact my uncle had taken to drilling into my head daily since I’d told him about the break-up. Stress was killing me and running was the only way I knew how to let it melt away, if only for a short while. 

As I approached the creek, I froze. In my haste to escape the world I’d gone too far. Standing in the water not fifty feet in front of me was another wolf. A big wolf. An alpha wolf. A wolf I’d only dreamed of being alone with… Adam.   

I backed away hoping my white coat hadn’t given me away. A twig snapped under my paws. The chocolate brown wolf ran at me, eyes intent, emotionless. Frozen, I waited for the inevitable. I was in his territory. I was alone and no one knew I where I was. 

His snout connected with my side, nearly knocking me over. Despite my situation, I stood my ground, knowing he could smell my fear. Suddenly a solo run didn’t sound like such a good idea. 

He stalked around me, sniffing here and there as he went. I lowered my head letting him know I knew who he was. He mouthed the back of my neck. No teeth, but his grip was firm. I fell to the ground, submitting. 

A familiar surge of energy pulsed through my body. With a soft glow the wolf I was faded away leaving me in my human form naked, cold and exposed. Adam sat on back hunches. He turned his head as if contemplating his next move. I sat unmoving while he walked slowly around me once again.  

As he rounded my body to face me, his amber eyes stayed fixed on mine. I felt the energy around me surge again. As the animal made his way up the length of my legs a soft glow radiated through his body changing him from wolf to man. 

I let out a sigh. There he was in all his glory. Long, brown hair. Intense amber eyes. Perfect lips. Lean, strong body. Long, toned legs. Big, calloused hands. His eyes as a human were as intense as those of a wolf. He was a predator studying his prey.  

“I’m sorry, I-“ I whispered. He put his finger to my lips and shook his head. My body trembled. “Please let me exp-“

“No need,” he said softly. “Had I been offended you’d already be dead.”

My body tensed. Not knowing what to do next, I kept completely still. This was his territory and his rules. I was at his mercy until he decided what to do with me.

“Jenna, if I’m not mistaken?” he asked. I nodded. He smiled and ran his hand up my thigh. “I thought so. I’ve watched you.”

Dumbstruck, my mouth fell open. “Me?” 
I had been within arms reach of him many times during pack get-togethers and such, but as far as I knew he’d never once looked my way. He had his choice of women. Not to mention his hands full with his own pack. 

“You.” His smile grew wider.  

“Why? I’m- . And you’re-“

“Yeah, there is that,” he said shrugging his shoulders. He folded his legs under him and put his other hand on my cheek. “But what kind of man would I be to turn down a beautiful woman when she wanders into my backyard?”

“Again, I apologize,” I said. My breath caught as his thumb began to caress the inside of my thigh. “I wasn’t thinking.”

“Obviously,” he said with a sly smile. “I assume your failed engagement brought you to me?”

I nodded my head. “Trey is moving the last of his stuff out now. I had enough of the fighting and left.” 

“Interference from both sides, I assume?”

“Of course,” she answered.  

“Not to be unexpected. You two were supposed to merge two packs.” Again I nodded. He looked down at his hand on my thigh and then back up at me. “Forgive me for saying this, but neither pack has the leader they deserve. They haven’t since the night your dad died. Even if your relationship had been successful it wouldn’t have made a difference. Weak stock.”

I stiffened. Was he calling me weak? “Excuse me?”

He laughed and rocked up on his knees. His eyes changed. I saw hunger in them now. “No, not you.” I could feel his breath on my lips. He put his knee between mine, inching closer. “Had either of them been what he should be, you would have been followed.  A real alpha doesn’t willingly let his possessions go.”

“Possessions?” I whispered.

“Like it or not, you were his to protect. To love. To cherish.” His tongue brushed across my lips. “He failed. Though I dare say, his loss may be my gain.”

“How so?” I asked. My heart was pounding in my ears. This was all wrong, but I didn’t care.  

His free hand drifted to the back of my neck, running his fingers through my long black hair. My body began to tremble. His amber eyes, now brighter than before locked onto mine. My skin was on fire. He knew I wanted him. Whether I wanted him to know or not; whether I was ready or not, he knew. 

“I stake a claim of my own,” he growled. 

He pressed his lips to mine. Resisting at first, I gave in, pulling him closer to me. Fear and doubt gave way to passion. Real honest to God passion.  Embracing it, I let him take the lead. 

Adam leaned against me, pressing my body to the ground. I dug my hands in his hair keeping his lips on mine for as long as possible. He pulled my head back, nibbling his way down my neck. As his rough hands raked down my sides, I arched my back and closed my eyes. God, his fingers felt good. 

My eyes shot open when he bit down on my nipple. Pleasure replaced pain as his tongue rolled around it. Slow at first and then faster.  I dug my fingers into his hair and pulled. He squeezed my breasts and started to nibble the very tip of my nipple. When he switched sides he rubbed the palm of his hand over my exposed breast. 

His hands moved slowly down my stomach. His tongue coupled with the periodic drops of rain sent little jolts of electricity up and down my spine. I dug my nails into his shoulders pushing him further down. I wanted to feel his lips, his tongue all over me. 

I practically melted when I felt the warmth of his tongue lick my clit. He pushed my legs further apart and settled into a crouched position, licking gently the entire time. I adjusted my hips. His tongue slid inside me. I grabbed his head urging him to go in deeper. He wrapped his arms around my thighs and squeezed, lifting my hips off the ground. I rolled my hips against his tongue. Just when I thought I couldn’t take more, he forced me still and sucked hard on my clit. Waves of pleasure ran through me. 

He looked up at me, the hunger I’d seen before now at its peak. He let my legs go and laid down on top of me. I wrapped my legs around his hips as he slid inside of me, filling me. My hips rocked against his. His thrusts slow but hard. Our lips locked. Our kiss more forceful, more intense, more needful than before.

I ran my fingers up and down his back, my nails barely touching his skin. His lips broke from mine. He put his head in the curve of my neck and moaned. His thrusts grew faster, more determined. 

We rolled over, me on top of him. I sat up and smiled. As I wiggled my hips, pressing down as hard as I could against his pelvis, his eyes rolled back into his head. His body stiffened. His fingers bit into my calves. I leaned down, brushing my nipples across his skin and licked the curve of his neck. 

In a flash he was behind me. The rain started to fall faster. I felt his fingers twist into my tangled hair as he yanked my head back and pushed me down on all fours. He rammed into me. I gasped and braced myself. The wolf inside had taken over. 

His thumbs pressed hard into my sides. He rubbed the palms of his hands against my breasts. I moaned as his fingers traveled down and in-between my legs. I swayed my hips from side to side. He slid in and out again and again as he gently massaged my clit. My body trembled.  

Suddenly his fingers dug into my hips as he slammed into me with the force of a jackhammer. I arched my back and let him use me. He needed it and so did I. I’d held back for far too long. He forced himself in deeper. My fingers burrowed into the wet ground.  Thunder rumbled. Lightening flashed around us, driving our passion to a new level. I pushed against him and spread my legs further apart. He moaned, moving faster still. 

I felt the end approaching fast and moaned. His thrusts slowed, but the force was still there. My body convulsed. I felt the muscles inside me tense around him, trying to hold him there for as long as they could. Within seconds I felt him cum. He collapsed against me. He put his arm around my waist and pulled me to the ground with him. Breathless and spent; our bodies limp with sweat and rain, we lay beside each other face to face.

I looked into his eyes, sensing something different though I didn’t know what. His hold tightened around my waist. I didn’t fight it. One night with him had been better than four years with my ex. No matter what happens after I leave, I’ll always have that.
