Synopsis: It has only been a few months since humanity has found out about the shifters that live in their midst. When the New Alliance leadership asks Eric King to join Alpha Squad, a joint taskforce supposed to promote cooperation between the shifters and human authorities, his loyalty to the cause doesn’t give him any choice but to agree. But is the squad actually supposed to be relevant, or is it just an eyewash, set up by the new Secretary for Shifter Affairs to make himself look good? And how is he going to concentrate on his training, when his inner bear is insisting that the squad leader is his true mate?Major Janine Williams is not at all pleased when she is ordered to set up Alpha Squad. The initiative is just a gimmick, meant to pacify the shifter community, plus none of her male colleagues had wanted the job. But when she starts getting to know her team, especially tough East London bear shifter, Eric, she starts to wonder if perhaps it will be possible to make this task force a success, so long as everyone works together. And so long as she can manage to keep her relationship with Eric strictly professional...
When Eric's lips touched hers, he was filled with a fire even more intense than the one he had felt the first time around. Was it going to be like this each time? As far as he had heard, a couple's attraction, once mated, would never fade.
Shifters who were lucky enough to find their true mate would stay faithful their entire lives. Till death do us part. He pulled away to get a better look at her.
Janine's eyes opened and it was like he could see into the depths of her soul. This was the woman he wanted to spend the rest of his life with. He would take her back to meet his folks as soon as their schedules allowed. Once their situation here was a bit clearer, he wanted to make a home with her, perhaps even start a family, if that was possible.
His fingers trembled slightly as he traced the outlines of her face, down the sides of her neck, soon reaching the collar of her uniform. She continued to look at him throughout.
Is this okay? He pulled his eyebrows together, awaiting her response.
She simply reached for his shirt and pulled him closer, lying down on her back as she did so. He did not need further prompting. His hands started their feverish struggle to rid her of her clothes as she started to fumble with his.
The small fire he had made had grown a bit and provided much needed warmth in the old wooden cabin. It was starting to get cozy. Not that they needed much outside warmth.
Her skin burned against his fingertips with a heat he had never come across before.
This wasn't his first time with a woman, and he imagined it wasn't her first time either. But it might as well have been—that was how different it felt. Her soft, pliable skin invited more detailed tactile explorations.
It hadn't taken long for both of them to find themselves completely naked. The rough fabric covering the mattress grazed his knees, but that did nothing to discourage him. Each time he looked at the woman below him, time seemed to stand still.
Nothing mattered anymore. Not her concerns about keeping things professional until the end of boot camp. Not even his worries that his work with the New Alliance had potentially made things worse. All they had been through had led them to this point. Now that they were truly together, they could take on the world.
