Werewolf at the Zoo

Wolves of Stone Ridge: Book One

Helping his brother escape the zoo, Rainy discovers more than just an array of animals.

While in wolf form, poachers sold Rainy MacDougal’s brother to the zoo. Rainy scouts the area, planning a rescue mission, and gets a whiff of the most intoxicating scent. A man. Travis Carlyle. His mate. But he quickly finds out that before he can claim the handsome veterinarian, Rainy has to convince Travis that he’s worth coming out of the closet for.

Travis leads a quiet, discreet life, avoiding any situation that could possibly out him to his family. After so many years alone, Travis finds the love, affection, and acceptance Rainy offers him too hard to resist. But just when he decides Rainy might be worth the persecution of revealing his sexuality, he discovers Rainy has been keeping secrets. A lot of secrets. Werewolves? Shifters? Mates? When he watches a shift with his own eyes, Travis is forced to accept the truth.

Too bad not everyone wants Travis to know the wolves’ secrets, tossing him into a feud between shifters. And when Travis’s father tries to come between them, can Rainy convince Travis to choose a dangerous, love filled life with him instead of the comfortable, quiet existence he’s led with his family?

    Rainy leaned against the fence and grinned. “Well, that’s quite the mess you’ve gotten yourself into there, bro.” He couldn’t suppress the chuckle when the dark brown eyes on the other side of the fence narrowed, and he heard a low growl. “Keep your fur on, I’ll have ye out soon enough. Then ye can tell me what the hell happened to land ye in the zoo!”

This time the growl was unmistakable, followed by his brother launching at the fence and snapping at Rainy through the fence.

“You really shouldn’t get that close to the fences. And what did you do to piss him off? You shouldn’t be teasing the animals!”

Rainy turned to see a slender woman in brown slacks and a gray button-down shirt. The shirt had the zoo’s logo emblazoned on it. Her blonde hair was twisted into a bun at the nape of her neck, her full lips scowled, matching the hostile glint of her blue eyes and the hands resting on her hips. Out of the corner of his eye, Rainy noted his brother ease back from the fence and stare avidly at the woman. “I apologize. I didn’t mean to aggravate him.” He grinned and shrugged. “Guess he liked the smell of the jerky I was eating. I promise I didn’t give him any though.” Rainy glanced over his shoulder at his brother. “Since I have plans for tonight, I’ll be on me way.” Giving her a wink, he moved past her. “Thanks for your concern.”

He heard muttering as he strode away from the pen holding his brother. He’d discovered what he needed to know anyway, the kind of lock on the cage holding the werewolf. When Rainy had heard his brother had landed in the zoo in wolf form, he’d laughed his head off. Cliff had been missing for two days before they’d figured out what happened to him… or where he was anyway. Only Cliff could give him some idea of how he’d ended up there. He chuckled. What would humans think if they knew there was a werewolf at the zoo?

An appealing, musky scent hit Rainy’s senses, and he paused. His gums began to tingle, and he had to concentrate to keep his canines from dropping. Taking several deep breathes, he glanced around. “What the hell?” he hissed.

Rainy’s gaze swept the area, trying to find the source of the delicious scent. A glance over his shoulder had him focusing on a slender young man who stood talking to the woman he’d just left. The man’s shoulder-length blonde hair was pulled into a short ponytail that brushed against his collar. He stood at medium height and muscle definition outlined the arm that held a black satchel. He wore the same outfit as the woman, with a white lab style coat over the gray button down shirt.

He and the woman headed into a building several feet away. When the man paused at the top of the stairs and glanced over his shoulder at him, Rainy’s breath stuck in his throat. The man had the deepest blue eyes he’d ever seen. His cock, already half hard from the man’s delicious, musky scent, filled the rest of the way and pressed against the seam of his suddenly too tight jeans. He took a step toward the man, but when the stranger’s eyes widened in surprise, Rainy forced his body to pause. His inner wolf wanted to whimper at the flash of panic in the man’s eyes before he slipped into the building and pulled the door closed behind him.

Taking a deep breath, Rainy shook his head and cleared his senses. A moment later, he realized he still stood staring at the closed door and forced his body to turn away. “We’ll come back,” he promised the agitated wolf pacing inside him. Something about the man had stirred his beast. After dealing with the problem of his trapped brother, he’d take the time to figure out why.

Adult Excerpt - Werewolf at the Zoo

    The sunlight filtering through his eyelids from a nearby window made Travis wonder how he’d forgotten to pull the blinds the night before. He cracked an eye open and saw an unfamiliar, heavy wood dresser. Travis frowned. Memories of last night seeped into his mind. Then the heavy weight of an arm around his waist registered, and he stiffened.

“Relax, darling. It’s too early to be thinkin’ so hard. Nothing happened.”

The half-asleep state deepened the man’s accent. God, that was so sexy. He had to bite back a moan, but the shudder he couldn’t hide. Rainy chuckled, shaking their chests. “Aye, I think ye liked that.” The whispered words sent warm currents of air across the short hairs on the back of his neck, and Travis shivered again. The arm around his waist tightened, pulling his back flush to Rainy’s chest. The man smoothed his hand over the quivering muscles of his stomach and slid beneath his boxers to caress the curls surrounding his dick. Heat flushed from his neck through his chest to his groin, and he gasped, his cock jerking.

His chest heaved as he tried to suck in enough air to breath. Travis stared at the dresser, but he didn’t really see it. He should stop Rainy. He shouldn’t allow this to go any further. But the man’s hand on him felt so good, he couldn’t make his throat form the words, or get his body to move. Suddenly, a fist that wasn’t his own wrapped around Travis’s morning wood. His body bucked and this time he couldn’t hold in the groan. “Rainy,” he hissed, feeling the callused hand slide up and down his hard shaft.

“Yeah, baby? What is it?”

Rainy continued to massage his dick and all his blood flowed southward, making speech impossible as his cock throbbed. The man rubbed his thumb over the head of his cock, scooping up the generous amounts of pre-cum that leaked from his tip. Rainy tightened his grip and began to stroke. Travis’s breathing shallowed further until he panted. “Rainy,” he cried out, trying to breathe. “Please!”

“Want to come, sweetness? Need release?”

“Yesssss, please!” He hardly recognized his own voice and couldn’t have stopped the begging if his life depended on it. He needed to come. He needed that callused hand to stroke him faster. Harder. He needed release. He rocked shamelessly against the man, his ass pushing back against Rainy’s hard shaft behind him before rocking forward through Rainy’s fist.

His whimpered cries were answered when Rainy’s hand tightened and moved faster. He could feel the hard dick against his lower back. Warm, wet liquid leaked from Rainy’s cock where he rubbed against him. A groan escaped his lips. “Oh, god. Harder,” he moaned as he felt the tell-tale tingle at the base of his spine.

“That’s it, baby. Show me that ye like me hand on your dick,” Rainy’s sexy voice hissed into his ear. “Come for me, darling. Come all over me hand. I want to feel it.”

“Aaahhh!” He couldn’t have held back if he tried. Travis’s balls drew up tight to his body, and his release pulsed up his penis and shot out over Rainy’s hand, slicking the fingers that massaged him, prolonging the pleasure. “Rainy,” he called, as his body continued to shudder through the most intense orgasm he could ever remember.

“I got you, baby. I’m right here,” Rainy murmured against his neck.

He relaxed into Rainy’s arms, whimpering softly and enjoying the waves of pleasure that swamped him. Several moments later, Travis recognized the wetness against his lower back and ass. He wasn’t the only one who had come. The knowledge forced his situation into reality.

“Shit! What have I done?”
