“My MC brothers may call me the Joker, but that don’t make me a fool. I’ve finally, finally got you back in my bed and my life. Ain’t nuthin’, not hordes of blood thirsty Ghouls, raving Gods hell bent on dominion of the earth, or even your own stubbornness is gonna be enough to make me let you go. Not ever.”
Joker’s Trick or Treat
By: Audra Hart
As All Hallows Eve approaches, the veil between realms wavers, tempting many magickal beings to seek dominion over mortals. However, there are those who watch over mankind. The Twin Ravens Outlaw MC are one such group of protectors. Joker, a former slave turned blood wolf, a guardian who relives the pain and heartache of losing Jenniene, the only woman he ever loved, every year as All Hallows approaches. Until the night when the lover he long believed dead walks through the door of the MC with enemies in tow. Will the return of the mysterious Jenniene be Joker’s Trick, or Treat?
I recognize that scent and there’s only one female who ever smelled that way. A scent that was permanently burned into my memory after countless passion filled nights back when I was her man, her only lover, and she was my entire world. A scent that haunts my dreams after all this time and causes all other women to pale in comparison. The heady combination of wood smoke, sage and magnolias… the very embodiment of the wild bayous I used to call home. Of sensual pleasures of the flesh, hearth, home and healing. The very essence of the one woman who still owns my heart and soul even though she stole my joy and purpose in life when she cast me from her life for being bound to a demon.
Slowly, I turn my head and look over my shoulder at the entrance to the Twin Raven’s MC clubhouse. In one miraculous and horrible instant, I am transported back in time. There, in the flesh, is my Jenniene… My. Fuckin’. Jenniene. The woman who should be nothing but worm food by now. My mate. And she’s staring daggers at me.
The disdain I feel from the woman who still owns my heart feels like a hot poker stabbing through my heart. But even that sensation is not as painful as the realization of what’s in Jenniene’s arms… a child… no, it’s a fuckin’ infant. And it smells like some kind of shifter. An outraged and very territorial snarl erupts from my wolf and fills the room.
How dare another beast lay hands on my mate?
“What the fuck?” I growl loudly before striding toward the door. But I am instantly brought back to reality when my path is blocked by Blood, the MC’s leader. My boss. My friend and mentor.
“Stand down, blood wolf. Mistress Jenniene was expected tonight, and she has my protection.” His guttural and gravelly tone is laced heavily with magick so ancient, none in this realm can completely ignore it. And I am sure as fuck not immune to Blood’s power. I barely resist the urge to bare my neck or duck my head. My need to keep my eyes on Jenniene is probably the only thing that keeps me frozen in my defiant attitude.
No one will keep me from mine.
But then another, more confusing thought occurs to me. What the fuck? Why would Blood ever think Jenniene would need protection from me? But more importantly… How is she alive and what does my Jenniene need protection from?
