The last thing she expects when she arrives at a lodge that guarantees every visitor that they will see a Polar bear, is two men who believe she is their soul mate.
Ashten and Raylock get a phone call from their brothers that their mate has arrived. They rush home, assuming it was only Brad's mate that had been found. Instead, their own red haired goddess is there to greet them on their return.
All is well with the brother shifters when Jacky submits instantly to their attraction and she seems to be falling in love with them. But they have enemies everywhere and when Jacky unknowingly steps off their land, she is taken by some rogue vampires.
Can they get her back in time? Or will the damage their nemesis does to her, turn her against them forever?
Ashten held tight to his beautiful mate’s hand as they traipsed around the land, pointing out sights, animals and tree’s she wanted to know about. She had a hundred questions and her enthusiasm was a joy to watch.
“This is all so beautiful Ashten! Let’s get higher, I want to see the view.”
Jacky broke off from his hand, the coldness as she left him rushing over him was amazingly powerful and he took off after her. She was running through the forest, her happy laughter echoing around him like the most beautiful music.
“I’m going to catch you.” He growled playfully and darted around the trees, pinching at her gorgeous bum and letting her continue to run.
Ashten growled and stomped, his heart pumping and adrenaline streaking through his blood as he ran in the sunshine with his mate.
They broke free of the forest and Jacky splashed into the low stream that flowed at the boundary to their property.
Shit. I didn’t realise we were this far out.
“Do polar bears like water?” She teased as she kicked her legs in the cold water, her delighted face one of true beauty.
He stood still and watched her stretch her arms out wide, turning her face towards the soft winter sun.
“We love it actually. This is the boundary to our land. It runs the south and eastern borders.” He pointed down towards the area where the river winded between two massive Alaskan cypress trees.
“Really? Who owns this side?” Jacky jumped out of the stream and began strolling towards the farm next to them.
Ashten’s heart began to pound as fear skittered along his spine.
“Jacky, come back. You’re not safe when you’re off our land.”
She turned and smiled at him, raising one eyebrow. “You gonna come and get me big guy?”
“Oh, you wanna play again do you?”
Which wasn’t a bad idea, he needed her back on their land as soon as possible, and if that meant carrying her back over the threshold, then so be it.
She squeaked and began running.
“I’m going to get you.”
He stepped into the stream and cold water soaked his shoes and the last foot of his pants. “You’ll pay for that my beautiful girl.”
He started running after her and something caught his attention. A noise, a whooshing. Someone running. That smell. Death.
Pain thumped through the back of Ashten’s head and a high pitched cry pierced his eardrums.
He hit the ground.
Another scream sounded and Ashten jumped up, his magic flowing faster than it ever had before. He reached out for the male vampire in front of him, his white paw gripping the vamp’s neck and squeezing hard.
Ashten threw him to the ground and slammed his foot through the vampire’s head. He didn’t care. He’d deal with the fall out later.
He began running in the direction he’d last seen her running.
He circled around and around the trees, her sweet smell lingering, but there was nothing but air and grass.
He roared into the sky, his heart cracking in his chest.
He began to run, true fear trickling along his skin like ice water as he got closer to his brother.
