Recker

(2018)
(Book 17 in the Skin Walkers series)
A novel by

 
 
Alexandra "Alex" Hayworth needs a new life. After the death of her mother, she's suffering from debilitating loneliness. She's given up on finding a man or any hope of having children, so working with the Skin Walkers at their compound is her last shot at happiness. She'll do whatever it takes to ensure she gets through the initial vetting, even if it means opening up to the big burly Skin Walker they've assigned her.

Recker Rhodes is given a mission he doesn't want, assigned to babysit some guy he doesn't know, in a city he doesn't like. He hates busy work, and this sure feels like that's what it is. He'll do it though because work helps keep his mind off the fact that he's unmated and more lonesome than he ever thought possible.

When Recker discovers his charge, Alex, is actually an Alexandra, it's too late to distance himself. Two reluctant hearts collide in the newest installment in the Skin Walkers series.
***
Fists flailing, legs kicking, mouth cursing up a storm, Alex took all her pent-up frustrations out on Recker. And why not? He deserved it! He was the reason she'd fled the Estate in the first place. He was the one who couldn't stand to even look at her up on that stage. He was to blame for all of this.

She fought him all the way down to the second floor where he carried her effortlessly through the halls. Alex bucked hard once, and Recker nearly dropped her. Startled, Alex yelped and wrapped her arms around his waist as she hissed, "Don't you drop me!"

She didn't see what happened but was glad she was clinging to Recker because he suddenly slammed to a jarring halt. There was an impact that felt like he'd run into something, which was confirmed when Recker snarled, "Watch it!"

She tried to peek around his body to see what was happening. That's when she heard Chief's voice.

"You!" There was a pause before Chief snarled, "You hurting this woman again, Walker?"

Her eyes slammed closed. Oh, dear God.

"Chief, get outta my way. Now!"

It was humiliating being slung over Recker's shoulder and not being able to face the action. Alex wiggled trying to get down, but Recker's hand tightened enough to get her to still.

"Put. Her. Down!"

No, no, no! She was about to plead for Chief to just let them pass, but Recker's next words had her mouth slamming shut.

"Try to interfere with me and what's mine, and I will end you, wolf!"

His?

There was silence a moment before a growl rattled up from Recker's chest and vibrated against her thighs.

"I didn't know she was yours," Chief conceded.

Yeah, Alex thought. Me either.

"She is. Now, move!"

Chief must have moved because Recker started walking again, and this time, Alex simply hung limply over his shoulder.
She was carried to her suite, and it annoyed her that Recker pounded in her code and shoved right into her place. How did he even know what her code was?

Once they were inside her suite, Recker finally put her on her feet, and when she stood to face him, she was taken aback by the look of fury on his face.

"Are you seriously considering Monroe's program, Alex?"

"What do you mean yours?" she countered, evading the question as she planted hands on her hips and stared up at him defiantly.

He growled loudly, plowing his hands into his hair, and pacing away from her. He went all the way to the furthest wall in her sitting room and turned to face her, hands still buried in his hair as he pressed his shoulders into the wall. "You're impossible, you know that?"
