Very unusual people in this book.
Thunderstruck (The Thunderbird Brotherhood, #1) by Wren Michaels releases today in the Adult, Paranormal, Romance genre.
Reseda Juarez is dead. Though she functions as a human, inside she’s an emotionless weapon, trapped between the living and the undead. Cold and unrelenting, she’s used as a super-soldier by the government in a special task force to hunt preternatural beings to the brink of extinction.
One night, five years ago, Kane killed an innocent and his brother lost the love of his life. The aftermath forces Kane to become the alpha of the legendary Thunderbirds. He now must protect what’s left of his family from the tribe of wolf shifters who ripped them apart.
When Reseda’s mother is bitten by a wolf, she and Kane are forced to work together to find the Mayan Pul Yah stone to heal her—the same stone that gifted Reseda to the life she now lives. But the journey is riddled with more than wolves, also searching for the stone. Something strange happens to their powers when they’re together, and they struggle to fight the intense attraction between them. The deeper they go, the more secrets unravel, until love is the only thing that can defeat an enemy no one saw coming.
The trees no longer talked to Kane. Songs that once whistled on the wind had disappeared. When a heart hardens, the windows of the soul shut, blocking any whispers with intent to reopen it. The elder spirits shunned him now, bringing forth more than his own personal punishment, and Kane had to live with that for the rest of his life.
Her screams still shook him. They used to only haunt his sleep. Now they echoed in his ears while awake, the torment of an innocent death ever-present to remind him that he was a killer. A monster.
Who’s to say he was any better than those who he tried to save her from? He should have saved her from himself. No matter the circumstances, a life had been extinguished by his hands. A life so young that should have been lived to its fullest, but she never got that chance because of him. Though the Great Spirits no longer spoke to Kane, they reminded him of it every day.
Golden eyes glinted in the moonlight, surrounding the bases of the towering redwoods. A pungent odor hung heavy in the air, covering the scent of the rain and peat moss.
Those fucking wolves again.
Every night they encroached further upon the reservation. Once friends of the Nuu-Chah-Nulth tribe, the wolves preferred power over peace, breaking the centuries-long pact between their tribes. Because of them, Kane’s tattoos activated. Because of them, he now protected the reservation.
Kane clenched a fist at his side, sending a pulsating tremor the length of his long arms. The throbbing of his veins echoed the thunder in his heart.
Another scent hit him, and he stumbled back a step. Adrenaline. Underneath it, the distinctive smell of a female. His nose twitched as he circled to pick up the direction it came from.
“I smell it, too.” Nodin flanked Kane’s side along with Tag. The same stark tribal tattoos marked each of their arms and chests.
“I also smell wet-dog.” Cupping his mouth, Tag stood into the wind and barked out a whimper, antagonizing the beasts.
“You two play with the pups. I’ll track the human.” Kane pointed to the edge of the tree line. “Maybe toss them a stick.” Shock waves rumbled the ground beneath their feet as Kane curled long fingers into his palm. Roots burst from the Earth and snapped through the air like whips.
Wren hails from the frozen tundra of Wisconsin where beer and cheese are their own food groups. But a cowboy swept her off her feet and carried her to Texas, where she promptly lost all tolerance for cold and snow. Fueled by coffee, dreams, and men in kilts, Wren promises to bring you laughter, heart-fluttering romance, and action that keeps you on the edge of your seat.
