Hunting Ground (Alpha & Omega, #2)

Hunting Ground by Patricia Briggs
(published 2009)

Werewolf love…

Taking another deep breath, Anna leaned her forehead against Charles’s arm and thought of the way his scent made her feel, of the sound of his laughter and the rumble of his voice in their bed at night.
