Excerpt:

November 7, 1812 Colorado

Storm-Chase woke to an owl hooting. He rolled over to gather Leaping-Deer into his arms, but only found empty buffalo furs. He bolted upright, sweat beading across his forehead. Then his mind realized the truth that he’d wrestled with for months.

She was gone. He cursed himself that he didn’t make her stay behind that day. She was pregnant and just past the stage of all day nausea. Cooped up for weeks because of her condition, he couldn’t refuse her when her dark eyes held such hope of stretching her legs and running through the forest in her animal form.

“I’ll be careful. Just a short run… prance then, so you don’t scowl at me.”

For a long time, he stayed in his wolf form and watched her from a distance. When she spotted him, she nudged him away.

Reluctantly, he left her to join a nearby wolf pack. Then the gun sounded. He shook off his wolf-brothers’ warning and raced through the forest. A hunter tied her legs together and Storm-Chaser snapped his jaws on the man’s throat. The sweetness of the blood filling his mouth almost made him forget he was human.

When the man no longer breathed, Storm-Chaser dropped him and spat out what blood he could. He shifted. Naked, he reached for her. She, too, had now shifted back to her human form. He knew she was vulnerable in her deer-form. Why hadn’t she listened to him?

“I will take you to White-Hawk. He will heal you and the baby.”

“It’s too late. I feel the baby and me both slipping away. Promise me, you will look for love again. Don’t harden your heart when it comes to you— even if she doesn’t understand it with her mind and words, your and her heart will know it.”

“Shhh… you aren’t going anywhere. I will not let you die.” How could he marry another? She was his wife and heart. Without her, there was no love inside him. She smiled and kissed him. Her spirit left her body and he shook, holding her. The others came to him, telling him she was gone, but he could not let go. Not yet. Maybe not ever.
