I'm working on Beholden furiously!
So, a little teaser?
Looking around, I couldn’t see what she was so anxious about. These were people I’d known since I was a cub and none of them would ever touch my mate or harm her. “They know.” She whispered a little too loudly. An older man next to us chuckled but then covered it up with a hacking cough. “Who knows what?” While pinching the hell out of my forearm, she pulled me a little to the side. “They all know that—what you and I—you know what I’m talking about. You’re just screwing with me.” Of course someone had to join in. “No, sweetie, that’s for after the mating!”
