Pride Animal Senses Book 9
by Jacqueline Paige Genre: Paranormal Romance
Banished by her Alpha, who happens to be her father, Amari learns how to survive without help. Driven by revenge, she discovers there are a few things in life she’s good at, but none of them are skills normal society would find acceptable.
Rogue shifters that were only without a clan because they were hiding from the organization hunting and caging their kind are responsible for the death of Tripp’s father. After securing his mother and sister a home where they’ll be safe, he ends up as an outlaw – until the Shifter Alliance takes him in and puts him on the one team that fits his off-the-rail, and a little bit crazy style.
His only objective is to end the organization terrorizing his kind. Until he meets his female equal that takes ‘out of control’ to all new levels and he has no idea how to handle it—or her.
In a blur of movement, the woman that was bound to the tree went screeching past him, both in movement and sound. Tripp moved closer, then pulled out his knife. How the hell did she get free and what was she doing?
She lunged at the little one, growling a low eerie sound. Her cat was closer to the surface, making his cat come forward even more.
One of the big ones started to move, so Tripp flicked the knife and landed it in his foot. Right through the boot. “Don’t.” He advised. The other big one dropped to his knees and held his hands up. That was more like it. Later, he’d internally bitch with his cat about how easy this had been and how they hadn’t gotten a single swing in.
Tripp stepped to the side so he could see what she was doing while keeping an eye on his new friends. Buddy was on his knees now in a chokehold. He wanted to blink to make sure he wasn’t hallucinating but didn’t take the chance he’d miss something else. She leaned down, close to his whole ear and he wondered if she planned to bite that one off too.
“This is for shooting darts in me,” she moved her hand to his throat and that’s when Tripp saw the glint of metal, “and the gas.” She started to straighten up and he figured she’d gotten it out of her system. In a move he could never have imagined, she stabbed the knife into his carotid artery and held his chin up, so it spurted out all over. It got her right in the face, she licked her lips and then looked at the dying man, “just like candy,” she whispered.
He knew his jaw was close to hitting the ground, but he honestly couldn’t decide what to do at that moment. The princess he’d pictured evaporated right before his eyes. He glanced at the other two. The one was hunched over his foot, reminding Tripp he’d left a weapon too close to him. The other one was reflecting his thoughts, of ‘what the hell just happened?’ Stepping closer, he, motioned with his gun for the injured one to move back. He shuffled back. “Hands nice and high.” When he complied, Tripp ducked in and picked up his knife.
Backing up, he kept those two in his sight as he turned to see the princess standing there, blood all over her hand and cheek. She wiped her hand back over her hair, streaking it red too, and didn’t seem to care. When she moved toward the other two, he quickly cut her off. “We need information.” He gave her a wary look, “they talk better when they’re alive.”
