Dani’s Return Excerpt
It took two people to bring out their order. Ace’s stomach growled as the smell reached his nostrils. He could practically feel his wolf lick his chops as he looked down at his two triple cheeseburgers, extra-large loaded fries, and an order of wings.
The bell rung over the door to the diner, but Ace and Brett were too busy digging into their food to notice the newcomer that had entered the establishment. All conversation about going after his mate stalled. He was in food heaven as he dug into his loaded fries.
A light scent of lavender and vanilla floated around Ace, gaining his wolf’s attention. He sniffed the air. Ace would know the scent from anywhere. It had been twelve years since he had last smelled it. He inhaled deeper, taking the scent in.
It can’t be!
He put his burger down and wiped his hands on his napkin before letting his eyes wander around the diner in search of the newcomer. Humans and shifters both filled the diner, but there was one particular figure at the take-out counter that caught his attention.
She was here.
His heart felt as if it wanted to jump out of his chest as his eyes took in the flawless caramel complexion of the sexiest woman he had ever laid eyes on. It had been twelve long years since he had last seen her, but he would know her from anywhere.
