Spotlight--Avenger's Heat by Katie Reus--Excerpt & Giveaway!

Just a quickie spotlight today for Katie Reus and her next release... Avengers Heat! It comes out Feb 4th and is all kinds of shiftery goodness. Check out the except and giveaway below :)    ~Anna

Enforcer Erin Flynn has dedicated her life to protecting her kind. But keeping her heart safe from Noah Campbell, the smoking-hot shifter who saved her life last year, is more difficult. The deadly beauty would love to sink into his arms and become his mate, but she knows she can’t—he must never know about her dark past.

When Erin is sent to investigate the disappearances of pregnant shifters in New Orleans, Erin and Noah find themselves involved in a mystery more sinister than anyone expected. And as Erin delves further into the crimes, chilling information about her own past is revealed. The people who wanted her dead in the first place are trying to finish the job, and Noah wants nothing more than to shield her from harm. But can Erin truly trust Noah and let him see the wounded beast she’s hidden for so long?

The heat and attraction between them was combustible. He was so strong and competent and unlike any man she’d ever known. Her inner wolf always wanted to preen and strut around for him. Noah just brought out her most basic, primal side. While she could never be with anyone weak or submissive, something told her that Noah would eventually come to crave someone softer. When she’d been found she’d been just that. Well, not submissive—never that—but she’d been weak and in need of care and nurturing and he’d been there. Every day she grew stronger and there was no way in hell she’d ever be that person again. What happened when Noah realized he wanted someone more feminine and not broken? Someone who could give him everything he deserved, including cubs. Lord knew, Noah deserved the whole damn package, including a big family.
When he didn’t respond further, she slightly relaxed and took another sharp turn. Now wasn’t the time to hash out anything anyway. The warehouse had been a bust, but they’d grabbed a quick bite to eat and she was ready to go.
She had a job to do and right now she planned to break into a Pilates studio while she waited on Ryan to get the home address of a woman named Kelly Bridges. She’d discovered that the human female had also taught classes that Meli had gone to during her pregnancy. That was three shifters with one solid link and Erin didn’t believe in coincidence. She still planned to follow up with the other families, but she had a feeling the missing females had all taken Pilates at CC Pilates. She assumed the CC stood for Crescent City. Not particularly clever, but easy to remember.
They slowly drove past the two-story building of the studio. It was encased on either side with restaurants. One was a bistro that was closed and the other a place that sold gourmet cupcakes. Also closed. Good. Erin didn’t want to risk any nosy neighbors. They parked a few blocks down. After tucking her hair under her cap to hide the vivid color, she and Noah got out. Since darkness had just fallen it would be much easier to blend in to their surroundings.
I say we go in from the back,” she murmured as she and Noah strode down the sidewalk.
I’d like to take you from behind.” Noah’s voice was sin and sex.
Noah! I can’t— Tone it down until later, okay?” She shot him a pleading look.
His dark eyes flared with heat for a moment, but his teasing grin faded and he nodded. “Fair enough. I know we have work to do, but don’t think I’m letting you put me back in some designated box again. You let me out and I’m not stopping until I get what I want.”
She swallowed hard at those words. “Noah, I will never be what you want. Ever.” How could he not understand that? They were both going to get hurt and while she’d come to terms with the fact that once Noah found the right female for him she’d get burned—okay, flayed alive—she didn’t want to cause him pain.
How about you don’t make decisions for me?” Noah snapped in a tone she’d never heard from him before.
