Rising Storm will be releasing soon so feels like a good time for an excerpt from book 1 in Westin Force, Fierce Impact. mybook.to/WestinForce1

I glared at him, praying he wouldn’t take this away from me. I needed the distraction, to focus on anything but her.

He nodded. “That’s what I figured,” he said almost like he could read my thoughts. “I needed something to focus on too. It helped, sort of. Do you think you can keep your wolf under control? I haven’t spent enough time around you to know how strong he is.”

“I won’t say it’ll be easy, but yeah, I’ve got him under control. I think he’s mourning,” I admitted.

Cole nodded. “That’s good. Well, you know what I mean. Good that he’s not fighting you yet. Tell me the truth, Grant. Will you be a danger to yourself or your team on this mission?”

He was watching me closely and I didn’t falter in the slightest as I shook my head. “No.”

“I’d agree,” he said. “I’m going to recommend that Patrick keep you on this one, but that recommendation will change quickly if you lose it. Understood?”

I nodded.

“Get out of here. They’re waiting for you,” he said sending a text, no doubt to Patrick. “Hey, Grant?”

I turned back to him already halfway to the door.

“I won’t let you down, Cole,” I tried to assure him as much as myself.

He waved that off. “If you need to talk about anything, I’m just a phone call away. Okay? I didn’t have anyone to talk to, but you do. I’m here for you. Those guys out there are too, even though they’re all a bunch of idiots with no idea what you’re facing.”

I snorted. “Yeah, that’s the truth.”

“Baine didn’t mean to cause this,” he added.

“I don’t blame him. I should have talked to her sooner. I should have followed her faster. I blame myself for this.”

“Figured as much,” he said again. “Good luck out there. Don’t do anything stupid.”
