Today I'm still sharing from Seamu's Mate, (Alpha Protectors II). I've picked up a few paragraphs from where we left off. Seamus is still waiting to be seen by his boss, Aslan. He doesn't know why he's been called in with such urgency.
And just as a fun note and because I love it so much, part of the tattoo Seamus has on his side appears in the cover. :D
Enjoy and have a lovely day!

~ ~ ~ ~ ~“Damn it, Aslan, what’s taking so long?” he whispered.
Sweat gathered on his brow and adrenaline pumped through every cell in his body. His hands itched to either hold a sword and continue fighting, or go to her. Almost automatically, he searched for the tattoos on his ribs.
Her image flashed in his mind. His heart lurched in a way that was both painful and familiar. It was the memory of his mate not wanting him. The knowledge that no matter how hard he tried, Kaila didn’t want to see him and didn’t forgive his past transgressions. But it was also the deep, bone-aching, bottomless love he felt for her.

Kaila is His. His Mate. Forever.
When Seamus discovers Kaila is in danger he sets out to save her. He couldn’t care less that she doesn’t want him there. His objective in life is to love and protect her. Besides, she might refuse to be with him, but her body knows better. With both their lives on the line, she can’t say no to his aid, can she?
For years, she has ignored her feelings. Kaila’s mission was supposed to be easy: enter the demon’s lair and save her sister. Then, he came along. For close to twenty years she has been fighting against the mating pull. She has avoided Seamus at all costs, but now they’re both trapped in hell and she has nowhere to run, except, maybe, into his arms.
He’s the kind of man her mother warned her to steer clear from...
Mystique is happy with her current life, but for years she's struggled on a path of self-destruction. She knows she shouldn't get involved with the brooding hunk at the bar, but how can she stay away when his sorrowful gaze is so compelling?
Reine has lost everything: his wife, his friends, his ability to fight, and his identity as an Alpha Protector. There's nothing left for him except a world of anger and bitterness. At least, that’s what he believes until he meets an intrepid waitress.
The attraction between them is immediate, but while Reine can’t let go of his past, Mystique is not willing to return to hers. With darkness constantly closing in, will they find a way to be together? Or, will Reine's behavior destroy their future?
