He kneeled in front of the woman and held out the glass. The hand that reached for the glass was covered in wicked burn marks, and he winced a little, just seeing them.
“I’m fine,” the woman said, straightening. The curtain of her hair parted, and Soren froze.
Everything froze. His heart ceased beating. Blood stopped pulsing through his veins. His lungs halted in midbreath, and even his bear went from rattling the bars of the mental cage he kept it locked behind to absolutely, positively still.
Her hair was darker. Her scent had changed a tiny bit, too. And she was thin — far, far too thin. But the second his eyes locked on those impossibly green eyes, he knew.
“Soren?” It was barely a whisper, but her voice shot straight to his heart.
“Sarah,” he managed.
Mate! his inner bear roared. Alive!
It was Sarah. His Sarah. Alive!Lowe, Anna. Redemption (Blue Moon Saloon Book 3) (Kindle Locations 135-142). Twin Moon Press. Kindle Edition.
Bear shifter Soren Voss lives and breathes for the new clan he leads as alpha. It’s all he has left after the rogue ambush that murdered the woman he loved — the woman he swears he’ll always love, even if it’s only in his dreams. But the day his dream comes true is also the start of a nightmare, because his destined mate may no longer be his and his alone. Is it fate’s way of torturing him or his last chance at redemption?
Sarah Boone narrowly escaped the inferno that claimed her family and her home. For months, she’s been on the run with a secret that is becoming impossible to hide. But the clock is ticking, and she needs a place to settle down soon. She never expected to find the love of her life running a funky little place called the Blue Moon Saloon. He’s darker and more dangerous than ever, but somehow more vulnerable, too. Does she have it in her to be the woman this world-weary warrior needs most of all?
There is nothing so wonderful as seeing a couple get a second chance at love. It wasn’t anything either one of them had done that separated them. It was the actions of outside forces that caused the separation. But just remember, what goes around, comes around!
