Embracing the Wolf by Stephanie Nelson

For the first time, Anna Avery was looking forward to the future. She’s mated to her soul mate. The pack has become her new family, and she has friends she can confide in. She had every reason to look ahead, until a vision put her future happiness in jeopardy.

Someone is set on destroying her mate, Adam, and only Anna can prevent this possible future. While trying to unravel the hazy web of her premonition, she finds out the annual pack conference will take place on her mountain. And Adam’s parents will be attending. As only a “made” wolf, Anna will have to face their prejudice and possibly make the hardest decision she has ever had to make. Because saving Adam’s life might just mean walking away from him for forever. 



Excerpt

Who are you to stand against me? I am the ruler of tooth and claw. I will shred your flesh from your bones and lap your blood in victory.
Whoa. Where the hell had that come from? The sudden overtaking of thoughts momentarily dazed me. Was that mywolf? My focus came back when Veronica charged toward me, her eyes alight and bloodthirsty. I feigned left, and when her arms reached in that direction, I whirled around and sunk my teeth into her forearm. Her screams reverberated off the cavern walls, music to my ears. With a sharp tug, her arm popped out of its socket, and I flung it to the floor. She collapsed to her knees, her arm going to her bleeding shoulder. My wolf sauntered toward her, enraged and drunk on the power coursing through our veins. The closer I got, Veronica tried to use her good arm to fend me off. Her fingers arched into claws as she swung them through the air at me. I could feel my wolf chuckling at her feeble attempts.

You thought you could overpower me? ME? I heard the voice again, laced with anger and empowerment. You threaten my life, my Chante’s? Disgusting parasite.

With the speed of the wind, my wolf lunged, landing on top of Veronica’s screaming body. With one arm, she couldn’t hold back the weight of my wolf. I saw the defeat in her eyes right before she let her arm fall to the floor, and I sunk my teeth into her jugular. With a jerk of my head, Veronica’s screams cut off. My wolf spat out the chunk of flesh and began scanning thecave for Taren. Somehow, we knew he was gone. He had left Veronica behind, knowing if he didn’t, he would pay with his life, too.

Smart, for a bloodsucker, the voice said.

Who … are you? I thought and then immediately wondered if I was having a conversation with myself. Adam had told me that my wolf and I were not two separate entities after all. He told me that we were one, and I just hadn’t connected with my animal side yet. Was I connecting with it now? Was this how all werewolves felt while they unleashed their beasts?


I am she. I am you, the beast replied. You and I have been destined since the day of your birth. You are destined for greatness—for power yet to be seen—as the ruler of tooth and claw, a Leader to rule them all. Now is the time for embracing your wolf, dear Anna.
