VonBrandt Family Book Two
Somewhere Texas Saga
Can a small-town cowboy win the heart of a woman who doesn’t have one?
Surviving charity functions by day and automatic weapons and death threats by night, Emma Carrington learned to be as hard as the men her daddy hired to protect her. Hell, she even carried a military grade stun gun in her Prada bag and could shoot just as well as any of her ex-military bodyguards if the need arose.
When a failed kidnapping attempt forces her to hide out in Somewhere, Texas, Emma finds herself stranded, floundering through cow patties, and desperate for a car. Who better to “borrow” from than the sexy naked man she sees turn into a wolf and leave his perfectly good pickup truck available for use. It’s not like he can drive it in his current condition, right?
College senior Noah VonBrandt knows the pack law better than anyone —only a bonded mate can know his secret. He watched his brother find the mate of his dreams and he wants the same thing, but you can’t just make the “right” girl appear out of thin air. To his surprise, lightning does strike. When a beautiful blonde woman trespasses on the ranch and sees him transform, he knows he only has two choices —claim her or let the pack erase her memories. But even as Noah fights to save her, Emma’s past is hot on her heels and out for more than memories.

“She was here,” the man shouted over his shoulder. “The fucking door is still swinging and the TV is on.”
Another volley of curses filtered out from inside the house and the burly guy went inside after one more perusal of the yard.
Noah detected the slightest shudder run through the small female next to him on the ground.
“What’s the plan wolf-man? I’ve got guns, but Hollis and Grimes are just as
good at shooting as I am. Probably better, because they get more practice.”
His chest tightened and he looked over at her, narrowing his gaze. “You know those assholes carrying automatic weapons?”
She nodded. “They were my bodyguards until about six hours ago. I didn’t think they’d figure out where I went so quickly. The dumbasses are smarter than I gave them credit for. Lucy would’ve known what to do.”
“Why would old lady Craig know what to do with crazy bodyguards turned evil? Why are they chasing you?”
“Money,” she murmured. “I’m pretty sure they’ve killed my parents already. They figured it would be easier to get me to give them money than ask for ransom.”
Noah’s mind spun with the overload of information. Who was this girl? If she was someone with a lot of money who people would miss, his father’s idea of giving her amnesia was not going to go very smoothly. In addition, his magick was was pulsating, translating his wolf’s excitement over their close proximity into an urgent desire to have her even closer.
And how was she not more upset about her parents supposedly being killed? If his parents were missing or presumed dead, he’d be a wreck. Although, she had seen him change into a wolf and kept her wits about her enough to electrocute him with that stupid-ass stun gun.
“Look, we have to get to my house. There are things that need to be discussed and—”
“Look wolf-man, all I need to do is get to Lucy and get out of town. Then we can both go back to living our lives like none of this shit ever happened.” She drew her legs up under her body, as if she were preparing to take off running into the trees.
“It’s not that simple, and where do you think you’re going?”
“Town. You said she’s in the hospital.”
“The only way in and out of this piece of property is down that driveway or
through the stock gate where I came in.” He got to his feet, but stayed low behind
the shrubs. “Come on. I’ve got a horse this way, behind those oaks,” he said, pointing to his left.
The next instant millions of volts of electricity coursed through his body and he bit back a shout of anger.
Sonofabitch. That hurts. And on the neck again.
He cringed from the ground as he watched her slink off in the direction he’d pointed. The nerves in his body felt as though he’d plugged them into a giant wall socket. Pain seared along his right shoulder and arm. His muscles spasmed and he struggled to move his arms and legs. She must’ve turned the juice up on that thing from the last time. Through sheer force of will, he climbed to his feet and limped after her.
He had to get to her before she got to Copper.
