EXCERPT FROM LION EYES BY JENNIFER ASHLEY

Seamus positioned the mirror on Nadine?s dresser so that he could see out the window without any of the Shifters below being able to see him. He counted four in front of the house. Probably the same number were in back, with more out of sight on the perimeter. That?s how he would have positioned his trackers.

Seamus knew who the leader was, the one who stepped forward, his hands raised in a placating gesture. Not surrender?this Shifter didn?t know the meaning of the word.

?I know you have a Shifter in there,? the man said, his rumbling voice carrying. The hint of Irish accent was clear. ?Send him out, and we go home. We have no wish to harm you.?

Seamus had never met Dylan Morrissey, but he knew a lot about him. All Shifters did. The man used to be leader of the Austin Shiftertown. When his son took over, Dylan became more of an overseer, roaming the Shifter territories in South Texas, making sure all Shifters kept in line. Rogue and feral Shifters were to be rounded up, brought in, Collared, and processed. Dylan and his trackers did a lot of that.

Dylan had been instrumental in shutting down the bunker that had housed Kendrick and his Shifters. He?d destroyed it and left Kendrick?s Shifters in the wind. Dark anger spiraled inside him.

?You?re still on my property,? Nadine shouted down. ?Now get the hell off it. Want me to have you rounded up and caged??

Dylan didn?t move. He was flanked by a man with a sword?a Guardian. Probably his son, Sean Morrissey, the Guardian of the Austin Shiftertown.

The very large Shifter standing behind the two of them had to be a bear. Only bears had that much bulk. The fourth was tall and hard, with tattoos all over him, his head shaved.

Trackers, Seamus surmised, and tough ones. The bear would be stronger than all of them put together but not as fast. The Morrisseys were lions, like Seamus?he?d be more or less evenly matched against each of them individually, though Dylan had a rep of never being beaten.

Seamus wasn?t sure about the tatt guy. Feline by the look of him, but Seamus couldn?t tell what kind of cat he was. If something like cheetah, then the guy could outrun Seamus but probably not outfight him. The guy looked like he could hold his own, however. He radiated self-assurance.

A fifth Shifter walked around the house to join them. He was big like the bear, but with close-cut black hair, tatts, and an attitude that could only be Lupine.

Dylan tried again. ?I know you have a Shifter in there. We can scent him. Send him out, and we?ll be gone.?

?I don?t know what you?re talking about,? Nadine said. ?You get off my property, then we?ll talk.?

Dylan made a minute signal to the trackers. Nadine and Bree wouldn?t catch it, but Seamus recognized the body language. It was, Find a way in and take him.

Seamus turned from the mirror, though he remained out of sight of the windows. ?I?ll go down,? he said quietly to Nadine and Bree. ?I don?t want them to hurt you.? Not that he planned to submit without a fight. He?d go, but they?d have to catch him.

Seamus suited action to word, without waiting for response, heading for the stairs.

A soft body brushed by, and then Bree was in front of him, blocking his way. ?Like hell you?re giving yourself up.? Bree scowled, blue eyes glittering with anger. ?They might be Shifters, but they don?t look like they want to hand you a beer and welcome you with open arms.?

Seamus put his hand on her shoulder. Damn, damn, damn. He shouldn?t have done that?one touch, and he didn?t want to let go. He wanted to stay here, sink into Bree?s softness, let her make his troubles melt away. Or at least give him the illusion that his troubles no longer existed. Let him float in pure bliss.

But if he didn?t leave, Bree might be hurt, and so could others who depended on him. He didn?t know what the Shifters outside would do to Bree and Nadine if they came storming in to grab Seamus. While Shifters were usually careful with humans, they did so mostly to avoid drawing the attention of the human police and Shifter Bureau. They weren?t necessarily kind.

?I didn?t say I?d give up,? Seamus told Bree, reluctantly lifting his hand away. ?I?ll distract them and run. Draw them away from you.?

At the window, Nadine said, ?Oh, I?ll give them a distraction.?

Not a bad idea. ?Wait until I?m ready,? Seamus said. ?I?ll signal, you do your thing, and I?ll go.?

He pushed around Bree and went down the stairs but heard her coming behind him.

?Seamus.? Bree grabbed the tail of his shirt. Seamus turned back, caught more by her presence than her hold. ?You can?t.?

?I can,? Seamus said. ?I?m fast. I?ll be gone before they realize.?

?That?s not what I meant. What will they do to you if they catch you??

?They?re from the Austin Shiftertown,? Seamus said?no reason for her not to know. ?They want to put a Collar on me and sequester me. They?ve been chasing me ... us ... for about a month now.?

Bree tightened her hand on the T-shirt?s hem. ?Where will you go??

?Somewhere not here,? Seamus said. ?Understand? They?ll chase me away from you. It?s what I do. You and your mother don?t need a bunch of pain in the ass Shifters giving you grief.?

Bree?s blue eyes took on a bleak look. Without the makeup, waking up from sleep, Seamus saw that she was a little older than he?d first thought?not that he was an expert on human ages. She was old enough to have a mate and cub of her own, old enough to have had life kick at her.

Bree took a step closer to him. ?What I mean is, will I ever see you again??

Seamus studied her for a few beats. In that moment, his body, which had been cooperative up until now, became a massive knot of pain.

He?d been calmer since he?d been in this house, giving him a crumb of hope that he?d conquered the wildness bubbling inside him. He realized as Bree?s body brushed his, that he?d conquered it because of her. As soon as he?d found her, her nearness, her touch had started to quiet him down.

If he left her, would the pain, the confusion, come rushing back?

But if Seamus stayed, he?d leave Bree open to danger. No matter what, Seamus had to go.

Seamus peeled Bree?s hold from his shirt, wrapped his arm around her, and dragged her close. Warmth of woman came to him as Bree?s body curved against his, the thin shirt letting him feel her limbs, her full breasts, the supple bend of her spine.

Seamus leaned down and kissed her mouth, a full kiss, not preparing her, not going slowly. He needed to kiss her right now, might never have another chance.

Bree curled her fists on his shoulders but didn?t push away. She opened her lips to him, accepting. Her tongue moved against his, she tasting him, pushing herself up into him.

Seamus deepened the kiss, taking what he could. Bree tasted of spice and the night, heat and everything that was good. He tasted her deep sorrow as well, a sadness she couldn?t shake, and her need. Bree had so much need. She was hungry, this woman, and no one had filled that craving within her.

Pain snatched at him and wouldn?t relent. Seamus could take her with him, keep her next to him, whatever happened. Bound as one, mates.

He tightened his embrace, kissing her harder. Bree answered with as bold a kiss. She needed him, and he her. Primal, basic need.

Bree wrapped her arms around his neck, her unfettered breasts scooping against him. Bree?s back was a pliant line, drawing his hands along it to her buttocks. Soft flesh met his touch, their position rubbing her abdomen right over his cock.

If five and more Shifters hadn?t been ready to charge the house and break down the door, Seamus would have lowered Bree to the stairs and relieved his frenzy then and there. Swift thrusts while she clung to him, the sounds Bree made in her throat escalating to full cries as they reached the breaking point together.

For now, Seamus could only touch her, kiss her, drink in her warmth against the coldness that was to come.

?Any time you?re ready, Seamus.?

Nadine?s quiet voice came from above. Bree abruptly broke the kiss, her eyes wide, face flushed, her breathing rapid.

Nadine peered over the banisters at them, the shotgun held carefully so the barrel pointed upward.

Seamus turned his back and walked away, moving on down the stairs. If he stayed, if he looked at Bree one second longer, he?d never go, and he knew it.
