Finding a naked man where Werewolf bones once were should have let Kate know she was in for an unusual day! By the end of her unusual day she discovers that her mother is a Goddess, and that nothing in her life would ever be the same.
Zane DeSeville spent five centuries trapped in a prison of his own body only to be awakened by the image of the woman who caused his entrapment.
After Kate discovers that she’s the daughter of a Goddess, another bombshell is dropped in her lap. She has to pass three Trials of Humanity, or she’ll be imprisoned as Zane had been, and Zane would be her judge and jury!
“I could devour every inch of your skin and you would beg me for more. It most certainly would not suck.” Though he didn't touch her, her body tingled as if he had. She stared at him dumbfounded while her brain tried to prepare some type of appropriate response.
As she gaped at him she realized he was changing. His jaw extended conforming to an altogether new shape. The next thing she noticed were his eyes, they went from blue to black as the bone structure in his face changed, narrowing causing his eyes to set apart. His black hair spread the length of his entire body. It took every bit of control Kate possessed to not reach out and touch him. His spine erupted, lengthening his torso as he dropped to his knees. Kate wondered for a brief moment if it hurt. His arms and legs shortened turning into what she would expect a wolf's legs to look like. Thought it only took a short period of time, his transformation captivated her.
Unable to stop herself she reached out to touch him. The wolf turned its head toward her bearing its teeth but emitting no sound. Kate's hand stilled at the vision of its teeth but her curiosity was stronger than her sense of self preservation. Her fingers connected with black fur that was soft. She half expected it to be course, but it felt like silk. What started as curiosity turned into pleasure. She stroked the length of the wolf's fur from the base of its neck to the hindquarters. She pressed her face against the fur, inhaling its scent. The feel of his fur against her skin sent a ripple of heat through her body.
She jerked her thoughts from a place she was certain they did not belong. She backed away from the wolf Zane had become. Her breath caught at the sight of his eyes. Though her mind had turned him from werewolf to pure wolf, the sight of Zane in those black eyes made her all too aware of the man within the beast. He flashed his teeth again in what could only be described as a smirk and bounded away.
Kate sank to the ground bringing her knees up to her chest with her arms wrapped around them. She exhaled slowly emptying her lungs before taking in a shuddered breath.
“You know you've been celibate too long when a wolf turns you on.” She said aloud. The desire she felt as she stroked the soft fur encasing that body left her throbbing with want. She knew the moment she saw him again in male form she'd not be able to look him in the eye.
