To be chosen is everything.

Billionaires. Scholars. Relic hunters.

Alessandro and Maximus Luceres are a united force and dangerous wolves to cross. Members of the powerful House of Luceres, they have spent their lifetimes searching the world over for the Lupus Sanguis Chalice, the fabled wolf blood chalice reputed to save the life of a human bitten by a werewolf during the first full moon.

But never in all their travels did the twins expect to find their possible Forever Mate, much less discover the beautiful Trinity Wells to be in league with their sworn enemies, the nefarious House of Ribelle, who are seeking the precious chalice by any means necessary and want Trinity to mate with one of their own.

Shockingly, Trinity is bitten by a Nomad wolf, starting the clock ticking down to her possibly fatal transformation and making the discovery of the chalice all that more vital.

Will Trinity survive the change…and unite the pair of brothers rivaling to be her Forever Mates?

EXCERPT:
Trinity Wells laid the four of spades atop the ace and six of clubs, adopting an innocent and surprised expression. The male dealer frowned, unhappy that she’d beaten him yet again. All a card counter required was an eidetic memory and a family screaming at her to bring home the goods and they, too, would win as many hands of blackjack as humanly possible.

Maybe they can also earn a nickname. Not that The Chameleon was negative, more like appropriate considering the many appearances of Trinity, all devised from a one single suitcase stuffed with useful disguises. But then wasn’t everyone something of a chameleon, as John Locke suggested in Some Thoughts Concerning Education? We take our hue and the color of our moral character, from those who are around us.

There was nothing Trinity enjoyed more than a wise quote. She sprinkled her life and her research notes with them, trying to make sense of the world and the people in inhabiting it, especially her family. Her stomach tightened with thoughts of that complicated relationship. A childhood that had guilted her to the point she pretty much let them run amok over her needs. But what else was there to do?

Her parents had been there for her when no one else had been, had kept her from being driven crazy by her growing abilities when her brain couldn’t seem to shut itself off, taunting her day and night with thoughts and ideas. Making peace with her abilities had not come easily and as a small child she’d been certain that men in white coats would come for her, haul her away and lock her up tight in some dismal prison. Her parents had saved her from that. Kept her safe. And now I owe them big time.

She gathered up her chips and, tossing the dealer one, turned to make her escape. Never get greedy and take too many hands in any one place. Though her luck was better than average at the Glitter Palace—always a plus no matter how brilliant one was at counting cards—there was no point in pushing it.

“Miss, you need to come with us,” a security guard said, his face inscrutable, laying his hand with authority on her shoulder. He was a sturdy guy with wide shoulders and a well practiced ready-for-any-kind-of-action look.
