Book Fifteen: This book is part of a series
Glory days? If high school was their glory days, the outcast gay teens at the outreach centers run by Caden Fournier were screwed. For most of them, the torment they received at those schools and at the hands of their own families was enough to make living on the street seem like a better proposition.
Enter Camp Pride and its devoted staff of volunteers and backers. For college students Kory Maguire and Will Cooper, the camp was a way for them to help abandoned and confused gay kids find their way in life. And it didn't hurt that the incredible hunks - ex-Navy SEALs Jacob Steele and Seth Ralston - were working there, too. Straight Kory ran into Jacob in Seattle several times and found himself having lots of definitely un-straight thoughts about him. Will had been abused by his ex-boyfriend and was skittish of all men now - especially if they were twice his size, like Seth.
Werewolves Jacob and Seth have found their mates in Kory and Will. But have the fates gotten it wrong? What if Kory can't commit to a relationship with a man? Is Will too skittish to trust and give himself to someone so much more powerful than he? And can everyone put their own problems aside so that the campers can feel safe and find strength in being loved?

Summer of Awakenings (Assassin/Shifter #15) Excerpt:
“Jacob?” Kory tested the name on his lips.
“So you do remember me,” Jacob smiled, motioning to the target. “Have you been practicing?”
“So you are the self- defense teacher?”
Jacob nodded, making his way closer to his mate. God, he’d missed him. “Yes, Seth and I. Are you planning on taking the course?”
Kory hadn’t thought about it, but he was thinking about it now. Jacob Steele hadn’t changed one iota. He was still beautiful. The graphite-grey eyes were smiling at him in amusement. Kory realized he was nodding his head, and his mouth hung open. Closing his mouth, Kory raised his eyes to Jacob’s.
“Yes, I guess so.” Kory tilted his head. “Where have you been? I haven’t seen you at Cuffs and Stuff.”
“Were you looking for me?” Jacob stepped closer. Kory didn’t step back.
Kory’s cheeks heated. “Maybe,” Kory looked at Jacob shyly. “What if I was?”
“I would have asked you to dance.” Jacob took another tentative step forward; again, Kory didn’t step back. “Would you have accepted?”
Kory looked up at the imposing man in front of him. Jacob Steele had to be over six foot two at least. His chest was massive, the pectoral muscles tensing as he waited for Kory’s answer.
“I would have said yes,” Kory finally said. Jacob’s lips lifted in a smile.
Kory nodded. Being this close to Jacob was making his hands tingle and his dick throb. His erection was rising in his jeans and Kory tried hiding his rising desire. Lord, what was wrong with him? He found Jacob attractive, that was a given; but kissing a man? Kory tilted his head looking at Jacob’s lips. They looked soft and inviting. A smattering of stubble covered Jacob’s chin. Kory wanted to reach out and touch it, see if it was coarse or smooth on his hands.
“Are you all right?” Jacob asked, keeping his laughter in check. He could almost hear Kory’s gears turning in his head.
“Oh, yeah. Just…um…thinking.” Kory swallowed hard, his eyes drifting southward, eyeing what Jacob was hiding in those faded blue jeans.
Jacob motioned to Kory’s hair. “I know it’s been a while, but I don’t remember your hair being that, um, particular shade.”
Kory blushed and grinned. “It was an experiment gone awry. I’m going to change it back eventually.”
Jacob crossed his arms and looked Kory over from head to toe. “I don’t know. It kind of suits you.” Jacob smiled as Kory blushed. “Well, I’ve got to get back to the athletic compound; I’ve got to get all the gear set up. So, maybe I’ll see you later?”
“Yeah, sure,” Kory forced his eyes back up to Jacob’s. Those eyes looked so familiar.
“See you later Kory Maguire,” Jacob winked before turning and heading towards the sports complex.
“Yeah, bye.” Kory watched Jacob’s ass as he retreated further from him. “Damn, that’s nice,” Kory chuckled. He straightened up as Jacob looked over his shoulder with a smile. “Shit,” Kory whispered. Had Jacob heard him? He couldn’t have. Kory stood there with what he knew was a ridiculous smile on his face. Yeah, he could see himself kissing Jacob Steele.
Into the Lyon’s Den (Assassin/Shifter #16) Excerpt:
“Oh. My. God,” Andrei hissed.
“Well now,” Devin grinned. “Good morning, Panchenko.”
“It is a joke, right?” Andrei’s eyes fell on Ivan. “It is, isn’t it?”
Devin stood up and gave Andrei a slow once over. The man wore faded, low-rise jeans and a T-shirt. His black hair was wet and tousled and his eyes were bloodshot. Devin averted his eyes and cleared his throat.
“Nope, no joke.” Devin picked up a piece of paper off the desk and gave Andrei a smirk. “I see you’re HIV free.”
“Give me that!” Andrei snarled, snatching the piece of paper from Agent Lyons. “Get away from my desk!”
Chris watched the show between the man and Andrei. “Um, Andrei? Who is this guy?”
“That,” Andrei glared at Agent Lyons. “Is Special Agent Devin Lyons.”
Chris’ eyes widened. “The FBI guy?”
Devin narrowed his eyes. “Who are you?”
“Well bend me over the desk and slap my ass,” Chris walked forward, extending his hand. “Christophe Voronova.”
Devin tilted his head. “Dimitri’s husband?”
“One and the same,” Chris took his time letting his eyes wander over the agent. Damn, but the man was eye candy. He had dirty blond hair and the most arresting blue-grey-gold eyes. Strong square jaw with a thin, regal nose. He wasn’t tall, but damn was he packed in the muscles department.
“So, you are Andrei’s bodyguard?”
“I am.” Devin sat back down after shaking Chris Voronova’s hand. “James Jacobs felt I was the best choice in this matter.”
“And why is that, exactly?” Andrei crossed his arms over his chest, eyebrow raised.
“Because I want to kill you. I don’t want anyone else taking that away from me.” Devin looked at Ivan and Christophe. “I need to speak with Panchenko. Ivan, I’ll need all the information I asked you for ASAP.”
Ivan raised his brows and Devin sighed in frustration.
“Fine.” Ivan took Andrei’s hand. “If you need anything, if you feel threatened —”
“Oh, do not worry, Ivan.” Andrei turned his attention to Agent Lyons. “I will kill him myself.”
Ivan opened the door to the office and ushered Chris out. Andrei waited for the door to shut before turning back to the agent. Dammit, Agent Lyons did look sexy. He wore his G-man suit and his hair was styled. Their eyes locked and Andrei felt his heart race. He needed to get his shit together; this man hated him.
“My desk?” Andrei growled.
“Get over it. We have things to discuss.” Devin narrowed his eyes. Andrei huffed, and then finally sat down.
“What do you want from me?” Andrei sat down across from Lyons.
“I need to know who you’ve killed. Off the record.”
“I will tell you what you want to know.”
Devin laughed sharply. “Sure you will.”
Andrei sat forward and earnestly regarded the agent. “I do not lie, Agent Lyons. I make no excuses for my actions. If you ask me a question, I will answer you truthfully.”
Devin sat forward as well. “How many people have you killed, Panchenko?”
“Let’s start with that then,” Devin grabbed a pen and a sheet of paper. “I’ll need to know all your business dealings as well.”
“Whatever you need, you shall have it.”
Devin put the pen down and looked at Andrei. “You’re not going to argue James’ decision? Even after you know how I feel about you?”
Andrei shrugged. “I trust James; if he feels you are the best man for the job, then I will not complain.”
Devin raised a brow, but just nodded. “Fine. Let’s get started.”
An hour later, Devin’s hand was cramping. Andrei hadn’t been lying. He was confessing to every man he’d ever killed, maimed or just made disappear. Devin stretched his back out and regarded Andrei sitting stoically across from him, arms crossed over his chest, eyes trained on Devin. It was a bit unsettling, even for him.
“I have one more to ask you about.”
Andrei waved his hand in the air wearily. “Go ahead.”
“Alphonse Rizzo.” Devin smirked as Andrei grew uncomfortable in the chair. “Name’s familiar, isn’t it? See, the FBI is still looking for him, as he was a key witness to a crime.”
Andrei snorted. “Oh yes, Alphonse the saint! That bastard was responsible for the deaths of many women from heroin overdoses.”
“You killed him, didn’t you?” Devin sat forward.
Andrei leaned forward as well. “Yes, I did.”
Devin started and sat back in his chair. Andrei eyed him warily. “I didn’t think you’d be honest about that one. I had my suspicions…but…”
“I told you, Agent Lyons. I will not lie. I take responsibility for my actions as well as punishment for those actions. Now, if we are done?” Andrei rose from the chair.
“Nope, sit your ass down, Panchenko.”
Andrei put his hands on the desk and leaned into Agent Lyons’ face. “I am tired. Whatever other questions you have can wait. I must get ready for the meeting of the families.”
“That’s not for a few days.”
“You are my bodyguard, not my boss. Make sure you remember that,” Andrei snapped.
“Oooh! Feisty, aren’t you?”
“I am tired and I have a migraine and you are making it much worse.”
Devin pouted. “Awww.”
Devin tilted his head. “How?”
“How what?” Andrei raised both brows.
“How did you kill Alphonse? Did you cut him up? Blow him up? Shoot him?”
Andrei leaned forward and smiled. “I tied him up by his ankles and slit his wrists. Then I sat back with a book while he bled out.” Andrei watched the grin spread across Agent Lyons’ face.
“You are one sick bastard, aren’t you?” Devin laughed.
“An eye for an eye, Agent Lyons. Alphonse disposed of one of his victims the same way. I believe in swift justice. I knew Alphonse would walk on his crimes.”
“Well, I’ll keep that in mind.”
The Nik of Time (Assassin/Shifter #17) Excerpt:
Colin smiled and crossed the room to his dresser. The door to his room opened again; he turned and all ability to speak left him.
“Well hello roo—” Nikolai stopped mid-sentence. Colin was half naked and another guy was in his room. The anger rose so fast Nikolai didn’t have a chance to stop it. He let out a menacing growl and lunged at the guy. He found Colin in his way.
“Nik!” Colin shouted.
“What the fuck?” Nikolai snapped. “Who the fuck is this guy?”
“That’s him!” Drew shouted. “Holy hell! You know him?”
Colin stood with his hand on Nikolai’s chest. “Back off, Nikolai.”
“Who. Is. He?” Nikolai growled staring at the other guy’s face.
Drew shivered. “Oh hell. That is so fucking hot.”
Colin sighed, pushing Nikolai away from Drew. “Drew Treadman, meet Nikolai Markov. Nikolai, this is my lab partner, Drew.”
“Why is he in here while you’re naked?” Nikolai narrowed his eyes at Drew. “Are you fucking my boyfriend?”
“I am not your boyfriend!” Colin shouted. “What are you doing here?”
“Markov?” Drew cocked an eyebrow. “As in Vince Markov? That Nikolai?”
“Yes, that one,” Colin sighed. “Can I see you later, Drew? I have to have a talk with Nik.”
“Uh huh, sure, talk,” Drew winked. “Got ya.”
Colin closed the door behind Drew and banged his head on it. Taking a deep breath, he turned to find Nikolai right in his face.
“Could you please back up?”
“Are you fucking him?” Nikolai leaned in. “Are you?”
“That’s none of your business. Now what are you doing here?”
Nikolai balled his ha
