Description: Things have gotten pretty exciting in Bandit Canis's world. Non-Preters trying to kill any lycan or Preternatural they can find, and his youngest brother falling in love with a human. Plus finding out there's a spell in a book that could destroy every Preternatural in the world. Yeah, "exciting" is a pale word for what Bandit's life has become. Yet instead of searching for the book, Bandit finds himself escorting twin lycans back to their home pack. While he's not happy about it, at least he gets to spend time with Allen Dow.
Allen is reluctant to return to his home pack to regain control, especially after being sold to a human freak show years ago by his Alpha. He has no choice, though, once he learns how far the pack had fallen in his absence. The only good thing about the entire trip is spending time with Bandit.
As their mission turns deadly, Bandit and Allen cling to each other, their love growing stronger as they both leave the baggage of the past behind them. While their future is unclear in the dangerous world in which they live, they also come to realize that, together, they may be able to weather whatever happens next...

After changing back into regular clothes, Bandit grabbed his keys and headed out. He didn't live far from the bar, so it was only a matter of a few minutes to arrive. As he pulled into the parking lot, he saw all of his families' vehicles, plus Nick's car as well. Why the hell were they all there? Had news come about Pavel and Jess? Or maybe the book had been found.
He pushed open the door and stepped inside. His family sat at several tables, chatting amongst themselves. He spotted Nick, Gryphon, and Marvus sitting by themselves in a corner. Rover gestured to the table where Savannah held court.
Roman and Allen sat at the table with her. Max had disappeared at some point during the drama of finding the book. The brothers stuck around, unsure and reclusive. Bandit had been right to think Max wasn't the twins' father, but at least the man got them to a safe place before he left. Allen and Roman had come from a bad place, caught and used by non-preters. They stayed away from the pack for the most part, and Bandit couldn't blame them. It would take more than a couple of months to learn to trust people, even other wolves.
Bandit sniffed and his cock stiffened at the scent he detected under cigarette smoke and the musk of the other lycans around him. God, he loved how Allen smelled, but he stayed away from the slender wolf. Allen wasn't ready for anything, and Bandit was pretty sure he wasn't the right man for Allen. Bandit had seen things while he wandered the human world, things that sullied his memories. As horrible as Allen's life had been, the other lycan gave off an air of innocence, and Bandit didn't want to ruin that.
