Today I’m posting 12 delicious sentences from my werewolf romance short story, Embracing the Wolf.
To set the scene a little… Kat, a werewolf hunter and a woman denying her own inner wolf, is out on a hunt the night after a run in with the right hand man of the alpha werewolf destined to be her mate, Amon. Kat has been running from Amon since things took a turn for the serious between them and the news that Amon is now close to succumbing to his wolf side has her feelings muddled and her heart torn between accepting him as her mate and saving him, or putting a silver bullet in his head before he turns feral. Kat is patrolling a cemetery when she runs into the alpha in question…
Amonâ€™s long black coat flared out in the chill breeze. He moved towards her. She held her ground, keeping her gun on him. Her feelings collided inside her. Fear fought calm, anger battled happiness, and hate warred with love.
She took a step back, needing the distance. Her palms began to sweat. She wiped her free hand on the leg of her black combats and then wrapped it around the one holding the gun. It still shook.
Her heart beat at a dizzying pace. Breath short and sharp, she glared at Amon. How could he still affect her like this? After four years, her feelings hadnâ€™t faded in the slightest. Just the sight of him made her knees weak and her body tremble with need.

Embracing the Wolf
Kat, a hunter with the Werewolf Control Forces, fled her alpha werewolf lover, Amon, when he told her that she too had the gene in her blood and would one day mature into a werewolfâ€”into his mate.
Four years on, Kat has now matured. Each night she fights the â€˜beastâ€™ inside of her and her desire to return to Amon. She hunts rogue werewolves with a vengeance, hating her kind and her blood, gaining satisfaction from eradicating those that have surrendered to darkness and violence, but she canâ€™t change her feelings and her craving for Amon is becoming stronger with every dream she has of him.
When Amonâ€™s pack finally catches up with her, she discovers that heâ€™s dangerously close to turning rogue and only she can save him from the darkness. An encounter with Amon reignites the passion they had once shared, dreams constantly stir her hunger for him, and Kat finds herself faced with a hard decision. Will she let him turn rogue and hunt him, or will she embrace the wolf and mate with Amon to save them both?
