Three Degrees Of Heat

TDOHAFrom steamy to sweet—an anthology that tells sequential stories of three fox shifter brothers who work together to heal the Leash that has been under the hands of a ruthless Alpha. When Leash Alpha Joe Fields turns feral everyone in the clan suffers, but none more so than his son Landon and LeashOmega Scotty Stephens. After months of abuse in private, Landon escapes and Joe finally snaps, making Scotty an example in public. When Joe crosses the line from cruel to psychotic, Leash Beta Alexander Axe Ashe knows he has to do something. In a desperate attempt to keep Axe from unforgivable violence, his brother Ben steps in and challenges Joe, ultimately becoming the Leash’s reluctant new Alpha. It will take the love of unexpected Omega foster to heal the new Alpha and the Leash, and the love of Axe and the youngest Ashe brother Chase to heal Joe’s two most broken victims.   Excerpt: Benjamin stopped and tucked his fingers under Foster’s chin, trying to ignore how good it felt to be touching the other fox. “You have sanctuary here. So, long as I breathe, nobody will harm you. You have my word as an Alpha on that.” “Really?” For the first time, there was a glimmer of hope in those green eyes. “I swear it.” Before he was even aware that he was doing it, Benjamin leaned forward and pressed a soft kiss to Foster’s forehead. “I swear it to you. Now, go shower. I’ll fix you something to eat. You must be starved.” “Why are you being so kind to me?” Because I have a feeling that you belong to me. I don’t know how, but I’m drawn to you like no other. “Because it’s the right thing to do,” Benjamin replied simply. He then left the room before he said or did something that would send him scampering for the hills. After all Foster had been through, the last thing he needed was the Alpha he turned to for protection making the moves on him. And if Benjamin spent any more time with Foster within five feet of an available bed, that was exactly what would happen. Since Benjamin wasn’t exactly the Paula Dean in the family, he opened up a couple of cans of soup, poured them in a pot, and began to warm them up. They were just reaching the right temperature when Foster came downstairs. Even though Chase wasn’t exactly a giant, his clothes still hung on Foster, making the fox look even smaller than he really was. Foster’s hair was slicked back, but Chase could still detect hints of red in the harsh lights of the kitchen. The cut in his cheek had been cleaned. Had he been human, he would have needed stiches, but as a shifter, it would heal okay on its own without leaving a scar. “It smells good,” Foster said. “Yes, it does,” Benjamin agreed. Only he wasn’t talking about the soup. He was speaking of Foster. The fox smelled of pine needles and earth, like the deep forest right after a refreshing rain. It made Benjamin want to go over and rub his body against the other man until he was drenched in the scent. Just as he wanted to cover Foster in his scent, that way any fox who came near would know that Foster was his and to back the fuck away. Clearing his throat, Benjamin motioned to a chair. “Sit down, and I’ll bring you over some food.” “Isn’t it the Gamma’s duty to serve the Alpha?” Foster asked. Benjamin sighed, as he’d put it off long enough. It was time to finally tell Foster the truth. Setting the bowl in front of Foster, Benjamin sat across from him. “There is something you need to know, and you may not like it.” “What? Does Alpha Glass know where I am?” A look of panic came over Foster’s face. “No, it’s nothing like that. It has to do with you being a Gamma.” “I know I’m not that good, but I’m sure you can find some use for me.” “Foster, you’re not a Gamma.” “Of course I am.” “You’re an Omega.” There was a long silence while Foster just blinked at him a few times. Finally, Foster grinned and gave him a dismissive wave of his hand. “No, I’m not.” “Yes, you are. Alphas know these things. As soon as I saw you, I sensed it.” “Then why didn’t Alpha Glass know?” “Because he’s an idiot.” “Well, you’ll get no argument there. But you’re still wrong about me being an Omega. I would have known by now.” “You’re wrong, Foster. You’re an Omega. And that’s not all. You’re my Omega.”
