Should you return to the wolves’ lair when you almost died in their fight a month ago?
“They know I am fond of you Jessica,” he said quietly, “I cannot deny that. And I have never invited humans into our lair before. My wolves are mistrustful because the females want to offer themselves as my mate. The position would elevate their individual power and control, and for them it is a desirable role.”
I slowly took in what he was saying.
“So, they think that I want to be your mate?” I asked slowly.
“But that’s crazy,” I exclaimed, “I don’t want to be a werewolf! I mean…”
I faltered, embarrassed and Danny smiled.
“It’s fine Jessica,” he said, “do not worry. Of course you don’t want to be a wolf, you are in love with Jack. I have no desire to change you in that way.”
He stopped and swallowed slowly, then fixed that intense gaze on me again.
“But I do have strong feelings for you Jessica,” he continued, “I cannot deny that. And the wolves know it. They are jealous because I do not show the same attraction to them.”
