We are so pleased to have the opportunity to share an excerpt from The Big Bad Wolf by Jus Accardo. Check out the summary and the sneak peek below!
About The Big Bad Wolf
Kensey Deaton comes from an elite werewolf lineage, but just because her family is royalty, doesn’t mean she’ll fall in line like some perfect little princess. She has plans and they don’t include an arranged marriage!
Slade McAlister has his own family drama. His Alpha father happens to be the most reviled wolf on the eastern seaboard, and it’s a stigma he can’t escape. So when his neighbor Kensey–the girl of his dreams and his nightmares–proposes a solution to solve *both* of their problems, he sees an opportunity he can’t ignore.
Kensey and Slade aren’t only from opposite sides of the tracks, they’re from opposite sides of the war. But if they can sell their ‘relationship’, they might just make it out of this with their freedom.
You know, as long as all that fake PDA doesn’t turn into more…
Excerpt from The Big Bad Wolf
She frowned. “Just telling people we’re together isn’t going to cut it.”
“I mean, all eyes are going to be on us now. My father will have spies everywhere trying to prove this is a fake.”
He would, too, the bastard. He hated my family. I wouldn’t put it past him to resort to any measure necessary to ensure his little girl—his property—didn’t end up with someone like me. I should have called it quits and run for the hills. This was getting stickier by the minute, but I wanted out of here. Could almost taste it…
“You tell me where you want to draw the line.” I leaned in closer, bringing my lips to her ear. Her nearness excited my wolf, turning my mind to things that would make good girls blush. “I have a certain reputation, after all.”
She tensed, breath hitching. “I—you—” She pulled it together and pushed me away. “I suppose some kind of PDA will be necessary.”
I snickered and straightened. She was actually much more than pretty—especially when she flushed like that. Wild, flame red hair and deep hazel eyes, her nose came to a slight point, but it was her lips that you noticed first. Generous and inviting.
Not that I’d noticed.
“We’ll have to hold hands, obviously.”
I slipped my hand into hers. It was warm and soft and molded to mine like it’d been made to be there. “Obviously.”
The muscles in her arm twitched. “And we’ll have to—”
It was amusing how uncomfortable she was. Maybe this wouldn’t be all boring. “Kiss?”
Her mouth fell open and she shoved me away, this time much harder. Her cheeks were flushed, and her eyes narrowed to thin slits.
I threw up my hands and settled on my side of the truck. “I promise, Princess. I’m a good kisser.” I wiggled my fingers and winked. “Good with my hands, too. Just, yanno, an FYI…”
Her expression darkened. “You’re an ass—”
“Like I said. I have a reputation. If you want this to work, you’re going to have to get right with that. And getting right with it means understanding that to sell this, you can’t go around acting offended by the things I say and do. You’re supposed to like me, remember?”
I got out of the truck and made my way to the passenger’s side just as she closed the door. “And just so we’re clear right up front, I have no desire to kiss you.”
She grabbed my hand and squeezed a little too hard. With a fake smile, she said, “The feeling is monumentally mutual.”
And it was. I had no desire to kiss Kensey Deaton. Any interest was purely for the sake of our arrangement. I mean, what guy wouldn’t kiss his girl?
Especially a girl with subtle lips and long, wild hair…
