Here’s Day 15: Saturday Snippet — Meet Shadow
Featuring Stronger Than Blood, coming February 20th
A werewolf with a sense of humor.
“Don’t worry,” Peter said, reaching out to rest his hand on my shoulder, mistaking my surprise for fear. “He’s a gentle giant.”
I knew what he meant. The werewolf wasn’t a threat to us, but he was deadly. If he wanted to be. It made me wonder how Salvatore looked as a wolf.
As Shadow prowled further in the game room, he kept that lopsided grin on his face. Then he took his time, rubbing his body against Liam’s immaculate suit pants as he circled him, leaving behind tufts of white fur.
As Peter’s giggles switched to a full laugh, Liam shook his head in mock exasperation. Then he grinned and patted the wolf on his head. “Hello to you, too.”
The wolf turned his attention to the rest of us and his eyes slid closed as he started making a choking noise. I couldn’t help myself, I snorted.
If I didn’t know better, I would say the wolf knew he annoyed Liam and was laughing at the result.
When he stopped, his eyes opened again and he walked up to me. I stayed where I was on my knees and he was still taller when he sat in front of me. His brown eyes met mine and he pulled his tongue back into his mouth with a slurping noise.
