Fangs and Fists 1: Bolt
by Kate Hill
An erotic paranormal romance from Changeling Press.
Kiara remembers what life was like living free–before she was taken by demons and bred to gladiators so that the new generations of wolves would retain their ferocity but forget their freedom. Mated to top gladiator Grit, she has a son with this surprisingly gentle lover who is also planning their escape. When Grit is killed in the arena, his close friend Bolt upholds his promise to protect Kiara and the cub.
Bolt and Kiara have loved each other from the moment they met, but they buried their feelings because she was mated to his best friend. When Grit dies, despite their guilt, Bolt and Kiara surrender to their desire for each other. Will their love be strong enough to help them win freedom from their evil masters?
Losing you would break my heart.
Since Kiara had spoken those words, Bolt had been unable to focus on much else. It burdened his soul that one of the worst incidents of his life had paved the way to the best.
In the training hall, he traded blows with Glacier, a wolf who had been in the tower for almost as long as Bolt. He had been sent from Scandinavia, taken from his pack like every other wolf in the tower. Glacier was a good fighter, but training with him wasn’t the same as training with Grit.
Bolt greatly missed his friend, but at the same time he could scarcely wait to be with Kiara again.
She was right that it wouldn’t be long before Jett was taken from them. Sometimes even newborns were ripped from their mothers.
Glacier smacked the side of Bolt’s head with his open palm.
Growling, Bolt partially shifted and lunged at Glacier.
“Just making sure you’re awake,” Glacier said as they circled each other.
