This is second in the Synergy series.
The lust between Merc and Chase is undeniable, but their stresses have only begun. Now that Chase knows Merc is a new shifter, he has to be at his mate’s side. Will Merc accept his new mate—not to mention his newly discovered shifter heritage?
Needy Growl continues the story of this sexy actor and his rock star lover that began in Hot Growl. There’s a lot more of their story to tell!
Here’s an excerpt!
Chase Rittenhouse watched as Merc, his newfound mate, slept fitfully, tossing and turning, a fine sheen of perspiration making his chest glisten. And Chase’s mouth water. After He and Merc had come—more than once for baby shifter—Merc had settled into a lassitude that was a near doze. Chase had muscled him to his bedroom, following barely coherent muttered directions, and dropped Merc into bed. The other man had just collapsed and stilled, and it was a little disconcerting for Chase.
Merc had been sleeping a couple of hours now, his body raging hot, the mating or his newfound shifter abilities running roughshod over his not-quite-mortal body. Chase wasn’t sure which was impacting Merc more. In any event, Chase had sat through enough new shifts that he knew when to be worried, and when not to be.
Even though this seemed pretty serious, it was nothing more than a blip on a shifter radar. Of course, the change usually happened when a shifter was a teen, and hormonal rushes kept a lot of the discomfort at bay. Still, Merc was a big strong guy and he could handle the stress of the change. In fact, he’d be asleep for most of the changes, or at least Chase hoped so. An adult shifter going through the change was something Chase hadn’t experienced before. He wasn’t sure how this would impact Merc on a physiological level, how his more mature bones would manage to reform when he took his animal shape, what sort of changes might be wrought on a fully mature brain.
It should take some time for the changes to make their way through Merc’s system, which would allow Chase to try to figure this all out. What it meant—and how they fit together. Why Merc hadn’t seemed to know. All the pressing questions that didn’t have easy answers.
