The Beta's Beloved

Wolves of Flathead, 2


A year after Declan Adair crashed into Carson territory and into the alpha Law’s heart, things have finally settled down. Except for the fact that Trace Carson, Law’s brother and right-hand wolf, is head over heels for the fiery but skittish Lachlan, Declan’s identical twin brother. The entire pack, including both of their brothers, knows how Trace feels about Lachlan. The only problem is that Lachlan seems completely oblivious to Trace’s interest.

Trace, in a final attempt to woo the elusive Lachlan, whisks him away to the northern reaches of the territory and a remote cabin deep in the heart of the forest. Trace hopes that he can convince Lachlan to give him the chance he needs to prove himself before someone else swoops in and takes his beloved away. Trace will do anything to prove to Lachlan that he can be the man and the wolf for him.


They were both panting when he finally broke the kiss. Lachlan’s face was flushed, and his eyes were bright, and he was so beautiful Trace could barely breathe.
“Can I?” Trace asked as he let Lachlan go so he could trail his hands down the smooth line of Lachlan’s chest to fiddle with the waistband of his borrowed sweat pants.
Lachlan nodded his agreement and Trace slowly hooked his fingers in the waistband and pulled them down and off. He tossed the pants in the direction of the couch, attention focused on the way Lachlan’s half hard cock bobbed against the smooth line of his stomach. Trace relished the hiss Lachlan released when he wrapped a hand around his cock and tugged. Lachlan was smooth in his hand, hot and hard and utterly tempting. He swiped his thumb across the head and grinned when Lachlan moaned and bucked up into his grip. Trace watched the way Lachlan’s eyes fluttered closed and couldn’t help but frown lightly at the way he bit lightly at his lower lip in an effort to stay quiet.
“Don’t do that.” Trace thumbed at Lachlan’s mouth with his free hand as he twisted his other to give Lachlan’s cock a firm upstroke. “I want to hear you.”
Lachlan moaned loudly in response, pushed his hips up lightly into the firm grip that Trace had on his cock. He didn’t try to stifle himself again, and Trace had to ignore the way his own cock throbbed with want at the sounds Lachlan emitted as he stroked him.
Trace moved out from between Lachlan’s thighs so he could settle onto the rug beside him. He played with Lachlan lazily for a few moments, did his best to remember every twitch and shudder he managed to wring out of him. Lachlan’s flush grew, spread across the high arches of his cheeks and down his neck and chest. He could smell Lachlan’s arousal in the air still, thicker than ever before, could feel the way Lachlan was approaching the edge, muscles tense and breathing heavy.
Trace pushed him further along with a few more strokes and then he abruptly stopped. Lachlan whined at him in protest, bucked his hips up and tried to entice him back, but Trace just grinned down at into his flushed face. Trace leaned down and took Lachlan’s mouth in another deep kiss. Before he pulled back Trace grabbed one of Lachlan’s hands and guided it towards Lachlan’s cock.
“I want to watch,” Trace rasped. Lachlan jerked and stared up at him in surprise, but Trace just leaned over and ran the flat of his tongue across Lachlan’s nipple. “I want you to do it.”

Question:  Trace and Lachlan have an emotional road to travel on their way to romance.  

What's your favorite type of romance?  Do you favor the quick-flash fire of instant passion and satisfaction?  Or are you a student of the slow-burning, long term kind of love?



  1. Both are good. I like when theirs story builds in time and I love when there is like insta fire and the guy is like "You are MINE!" . lol.

  2. i like both kinds as long as the story is well writen.

  3. I think whatever the characters dictate is fine!

  4. Both are great but I really enjoy the quick fast can't get your clothes off fast enough passion. So thrilling and hot.

  5. I hate it dragging on forever....I can do fast and furious or build up, but I really get frustrated if nothing has happened by 50%

  6. contemporary; like both

  8. Depending on the mood I'm in and what the scene calls for I actually like both. Sometimes you want it to be fast and hard and sometimes you want it to be slow and simmering. lavidabrisco(at)yahoo(dot)com

  9. I love the slow burn and long term love type of romance most of the time. But I still enjoy that quick passionate sexy romance also, espee if it ends on long term happily ever after.

  10. I like both, but prefer the slow burn long term type.

  11. I like both but love the slow burning, last forever type.

  12. I prefer the slow burn type.

  13. I like the initial quick flash of "here's my mate" but that needs to evolve to a long term HEA. It can't come too easy.

  14. Congrats on all of your success! I like both! More so just depends on my mood. Though, i do think i tend to go more for the slow burn. I love a romance that the characters (usually heroine) is in love with (usually hero). He ignores, stays away, etc for whatever reason. Both fight the attraction to one another. Thank you for the fantastic hop!

  15. I love the slow burning, long term kind of love! <3

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    Take care & I hope you have a great day! =)

  16. I don't mind insta-sex, as long as the book makes it clear 'it is what it is'......I can relate to immediate white-hot chemistry.....but PLEASE don't try to sell me "in love" by page makes the whole story seem forced.

    Thanks for the giveaway!
