Just One Drop Tour Stop and Giveaway

Excerpt chapter 6

"What are you grinning about?" Decebel growled, knowing he wasn't going to like the answer.

"I think it's time we break up their girls' night out. Preferably before Jen falls off the bar," Fane told him. Though he tried, he couldn't hide the teasing laughter in his eyes as he watched his words penetrate Decebel's mind.

"She's in a bar?"

"Oh, she'll do you one better than that, Beta." Fane chuckled. "She's on a bar. As in dancing on a bar. The patrons are quite taken with her."

Decebel was out of his seat and ripping the door open before Fane could finish his sentence.

"Did you have taunt him?" Vasile scolded.

Fane shrugged. "Seeing the steely, calm Beta all riled is too much to pass up, Alpha."

Vasile tried to hide his smile as he shook his head at his only son. "Fine, but hurry up and go with him or he'll tear the damn bar apart, and I don't have the time or energy to deal with that mess."

"As you say." Fane winked at his father.

"Luna, I'm giving you fair warning. Your little adventure has been found out by the subject of your taunting. Do you think it wise, my love, to bait a dominant male?"

Fane could feel her surprise as she heard his voice in her mind. He smiled. He loved surprising her – it was a nice change of pace since he was usually the one being surprised.

"Crap. Is he on his way here?" Fane heard the anxiety in her voice.

"Hell is on his heels, love."

"You are enjoying this entirely too much, White Fang."

"Aw. Now, Jacquelyn, that is no way to speak to your mate." Fane couldn't cover his laughter.

"Just remember, wolf-man, I will follow through with my threat to have that dog house built for you. Now how long?"

"You wound me with your words, Luna."

"Fane, I'm not playing with you. How long till the brooding fur ball arrives?"
Fane had neglected to tell Jacquelyn that he and Decebel had been driving the whole time they'd been conversing. The bar was only five minutes from the mansion. He smiled to himself as he and Decebel climbed out of the Hummer.

Fane pulled open the door to the bar. He took in the scene and nearly lost his composure at the sight.

"You're looking stunning, Luna, if not a little under-clothed." Fane watched as Jacquelyn's eyes, big as saucers, met his across the bar. He grinned wickedly, raising his eyebrows as he whispered in her mind.


Jen's letter from Decebel

This is a letter that Decebel wrote to Jen the night they decided to see where their relationship and the feelings they have will go. It's the same night he tells her his wolf has claimed her.

My love,

I know I could have probably been a little more suave about how I announced my intentions towards you. Words have never been my forte'. However, I'm going to attempt as best I can to tell you what you, in the short time I've known you, have come to mean to me. No laughing allowed. 
The first moment I realized that you were going to be important to me was when I saw your still form lying on the side of the road next to the burning vehicle. You weren't moving. In that moment I don't think I had ever felt such fear. I knew then you mattered. I wasn't exactly sure in what way, or capacity, but I knew you mattered to me.
During your time in the hospital my wolf grew more and more attached to you and so did I. Every day I looked forward to seeing you. I even looked forward to hearing whatever smart remark you would throw my way. When I was with you it was so hard not to just stare. I tried to memorize your face, your expressions, the sound of your voice, your scent so that I could recall them when we were apart.
When I found out that you were a potential mate to my kind two things happened. The first my wolf howled in triumph, he was convinced that you were ours. The second was complete and utter fear. As I've told you I know what it is to lose someone that I love, to be unable to protect someone who relies on you, to be completely helpless in the outcome of their fate. I ran from you, from us. That is why I was gone for those months.
Now, here around all these others, the idea of losing you is unacceptable to me and unbearable. There is something in me that just clicks into place when you are around. You bring my wolf peace and you fill my darkness with light.
Tonight I told you that I wanted you Jennifer. The real meaning behind those words was I love you.  
I love you. You are mine and I am yours. I will always protect you, care for you and provide for you. There is nothing or no one who will keep you from me.
Thank you baby, for being my light. For bringing me hope and accepting me as I am.

Forever yours,

Just One Drop

Book 3 in the Grey Wolves Series
By Quinn Loftis

Jennifer Adams, best friend to Jacque Pierce and Sally Morgan, spicy, out spoken, a little crazy and human...or so she thought. Jen has just found out that human DNA is not the only thing that resides in her veins, she happens to share that little pesky werewolf gene, although it isn't more than just a drop. Now that she and her friends are living in Romania with Fane's pack, she is also oh so conveniently stuck with the object of her affection, the fur ball Decebel.

Drawn to each other by something they don't understand Jen finds herself frustrated by the lack of mating signs between her and said fur ball. Not only is she dealing with that not so un-frustrating problem, she now has been informed that because of that little drop of werewolf blood in her she is now required to attended a multi-pack gathering for un-mated wolves. This type of gathering hasn't taken place in over a century but with a shortage of females among the werewolf population the males are getting worried they won't ever find their true mates.

Meanwhile Decebel struggles with the emotions he is feeling towards Jen. He tries to keep his distance but there is just something about the mouthy blonde that keeps him coming back for more of her verbal abuse that he just can't seem to get enough of...go figure
