Clare and her precious cargo of wild dogs have just been kidnapped by poachers and they've reached their final destination. She's identified the leader as Alpha and he's imprisoned her in a room to keep her safe from the others...
A dangerous smile curved his lips. "I know you speak English, because you swear like an Irish gaurd. Again, what's your name?"
Clare doubted even her Da would have used the word she spat back at him.
The smile chilled. "Tell me your name."
An old joke from vet school fought its way into her mind. "Ana."
Her chin went up defiantly. "Phalaxis."
The smile disappeared along with all the aitr in the room as he stepped father into it. She couldn't help but stumble back.
In the wild, even love takes its chances.
