Blaze, the most powerful werewolf on the planet has found his omega, Aden. Together with Conner and Darric they finally become true mates, fulfilling an ancient prophecy by the goddess Sirius and forming Orion’s Circle. The battle against the terrorist group, the Winter Circle, has begun.
Blaze, however, is fighting his own battle. Aden is due to birth a child, and despite Blaze’s six hundred years of being an Alpha, nothing has prepared him for his hardest challenge yet — how to become a father. His struggles are hurting the people he loves the most and threatening their bond.
The madman who kidnapped and tortured Aden still hasn’t been caught, and when the worst happens and their circle is broken, Blaze has to fight his biggest threat yet – his own inner weakness – an enemy against which his Alpha strength will be useless. Blaze has to learn that true strength is only found in forgiveness, and sometimes the most powerful weapon is love.
The four boys stop by for an interview that is just too fun. These four are silly and you can definitely tell they enjoy laughing. Read and enjoy!
Molly: Now that you’ve gotten together, what comes next?
Conner: “Staying together.”
Aden: “And saving the planet!” (giggles)
Blaze: “What they actually both mean,” (gives them both a serious look) “Is that we face a lot of challenges.”
Darric: “Both in and out of bed.”
Aden: (falls over laughing)
Darric: “Well, eight arms and legs…”
Conner: “And other things.” (waggles eyebrows)
Molly: What was the hardest thing for you to overcome that you didn’t expect to be an issue?
Blaze: “Well, agreeing on parenting style for one.”
Conner: “What Blaze means is he is disgusted when we don’t do as he says.”
(Darric laughs, and Blaze rolls his eyes.)
Molly: Who or what makes you laugh out loud?
Blaze, Conner, and Darric : ADEN!
Molly: What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
Blaze looks puzzled.
Darric: “Oh, Conner definitely.” (Turns to Conner) “I want to lick you all over.”
Molly: What movie will you watch over and over again?
Aden shouts: “Wolverine!” and collapses laughing. Blaze shakes his head in disgust. Conner and Darric don’t care because they’re too busy making out.
Darric was the next one to get back. He walked in, his long, silver hair flowing down his back, gray eyes flashing as he zeroed in on Aden. Aden nearly dragged him over to a chair, and Darric with a tired smile to Lilly as she plonked a full plate of meat and bread down, drew Aden straight onto his lap and buried his head in Aden’s chest. He heaved a sigh; Aden gently wrapped his arms around Darric’s back. “There must be something else I can do, Darric,” Aden murmured in frustration. He was so useless without a wolf. He couldn’t even join the search, and he was so weak he knew Conner and Darric were timing their appearances so he wouldn’t get sick.
Darric lifted his head and his big hands settled on each side of Aden’s face. “Listen to me. You are not weak. A weaker person would never have survived the life you have had. Aden, you are one of the strongest people I know.” He placed a kiss on Aden’s lips and Aden tried to get a little closer. Darric broke off. “You have a wolf spirit, Aden. With everything that’s been going on, I should have tried to help you find him far sooner than this.”
Aden looked up eagerly. He had a wolf? He remembered Blaze saying that to him last year. Maybe—
“You will never shift, Aden,” Darric said quickly, picking up Aden’s thoughts. Aden sighed. He would love to have the freedom that they all spoke of.
“Close your eyes.” Aden’s eyes widened at Darric’s words. “I cannot make you shift, but I can give you that feeling. Close your eyes,” Darric urged, and Aden did. “Now breathe. Become aware of who you are, where you are. Your vision loses color, but becomes sharper. As you stand in the grass, poised to run, the scents surround you, become intense. You don’t just stand on the grass, the grass surrounds you and carries you forward. You start to run.”
Darric’s words washed over Aden as he ran, chasing every scent, breathing in the flowers, the earth, the wind through his fur and the sun on his back. It was wonderful, and he wanted it so much.
“Aden?” Aden opened his eyes slowly, felt regret as Darric kissed his cheek. “I’m sorry. I should have done that far sooner, and I don’t have time to do any more.”
Aden nodded. “That was wonderful. Is that what Blaze meant? That I would find my wolf?”
Darric took the sandwich that Aden passed him. “No, Blaze meant it as a more spiritual concept.” He took a large bite.
Aden sat up. “Then how did I see that? Was that not my wolf?”
Darric swallowed and grinned. “No, Aden. That was my wolf you felt.” He nudged Aden almost playfully. “He likes you.” Darric finished his sandwich and glugged the coffee that was on the table. He lifted Aden as he stood, and settled him down on the chair he had just vacated. Darric leaned in, cupped Aden’s chin with one hand to raise his face, and clasped Aden’s other hand to his heart. “When Blaze is home safe, I’m going to take you camping to the base of the Lookout Mountain. It’s beautiful. You’ll find your wolf, and share mine as much as you like.” Darric nibbled Aden’s lips gently, stood silently and smiled. “You are far more powerful than you know.”
MM Love stories – because the only thing better than one hot guy is two of them.
Has loved books for as long as she can remember. Books were always what pocket money went on and what usually Father Christmas brought. When she ran out of her kids’ adventure stories, she would go raid her mom’s. By the age of eight she was devouring classics like Little Women, and fell in love with love stories.
She’s still in love with them. Any size, any shape, any creature – love is love, no matter what it says on the box.
In fact if they don’t fit very neatly into any box she loves them even more!
She has a very patient husband and three wonderful children. In 2010 in search of adventure they all moved from the UK to the US and are happily settled in Florida. Finally, after reading love stories for so long, she decided to write her own.
