Promo: Resisting Velocity

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Publisher: Elysium Fields, LLC

As frontman of up-and-coming rock band,
High Velocity, werewolf Zane Alexander has
everything a man could want: Fame, fortune,
friendship, and a pack to call home. Well,
almost everything. Despite being able to take
his pick of pretty much any woman, he wants
the one girl he can’t have—the one girl who’s eluded his every advance.Charlie Banks has
always had a thing for Zane, but being the band’s head of security, she knows firsthand just the
sort of guy he is. She’s determined not to become just another notch on his bedpost, but if
doesn’t stop the want for a mate curling in her gut. It’ll happen, someday—it just won’t be Zane.
She’s decided that it’s time to leave High Velocity, to find a nice little home and settle down to
live the rest of her life, away from sexy smiles and ripped bodies of rock stars.But when
someone threatens Zane’s life, she’s the only one he wants to protect him. Except, Zane has a
hidden agenda. One that involves claiming Charlie as his mate, once and for all.


Breathing in short, sharp breaths, Zane followed her through the winding corridors of the
Richter Stadium, past the women’s bathrooms and down a flight of stairs. He held his breath
for a moment as he slid through the remaining security crew. His golden eyes zeroed in on the
whipcord lean beauty, a few dark curls coiling down from the sensible bun she always wore it in.
She stopped, hesitating right outside the doors. Two more steps and he’d lose her to the
nightlife, his identity keeping him from following her any farther. If fans saw him, his life
would become a hurricane of screams and groping hands. He wasn’t in the mood to put on his
usual charming-playboy air to deal with them and he knew that going furry on their asses would
damage his career.
Now or never. As she stepped out, he lurched forward, his pulse pounding furiously at his
throat, and he crossed the floor in three strides. His fingers curled around her shoulders, firm and
commanding, though he knew she hated it when he pulled the alpha role. She spun and her lips
formed a thin line, as if she’d been expecting this. She’d known. You couldn’t really lie to pack
and get away with it.
“Charlie.” The one word was all he could say before her eyes pinned him. They were pale
as a sheet of blue ice, staring up at him with a gentle ferocity that she’d only ever reserved for
him. He had no doubts that she wanted him—he’d smelled it on her in the past, saw the way she
looked at him sometimes, as if she was seeing through to his soul—but she was wary. Guarded.
The walls around her heart were made of marble and he was left pounding both fists against the
cool stone.
“You can’t leave.” His words were a statement. A fact.
“I can and I am,” she replied coolly.
“What about the guys? What about High Velocity? You’re just going to throw it all away?”
He was surprised at the intensity behind his words, but he was far from done. “Are we not paying
you enough? There’s always ways around that. How much will it take?”
She blew out a harsh expel of air and glanced down at his hand clamped around her arm, but
she didn’t bother to pull away. Her winter gaze met his molten gold once more. “I’ve made my
decision, Zane. You need to respect it. There comes a time in everyone’s career where they have
to make a choice and take a stand. This is it. I’ve put in my notice, I’ve followed protocol. There
shouldn’t be a problem.”
A growl slid up his throat, escaping with a rumble. “I don’t give a damn about protocol.
You could flash your tits to the crowd if you wanted and we still wouldn’t fire you. I don’t care.
You’re part of our group. And, like it or not, you’re part of the pack. My pack.”
“You and I both know that I’ve never really been part of the pack.” Her voice carried
a touch of wistfulness. She was right—she’d always been a bit of a loner, keeping herself
estranged from the members of Elysium, try as his parents might to welcome her in. But she’d
never been distant with Zane and the guys and he wasn’t about to let that happen. Not now.
“You’re staying.”
She lifted a brow. “Since when are you my master?”
“Since you started talking crazy shit about leaving us!” He tamped his anger back down. He
never had a temper. What was up with him? He took a deep breath, letting it whistle out his nose
as he tried to soften his posture, tried to be less demanding. “We need you. Okay? I respect your
decision to quit, but you don’t have to skip town and leave us. Just stay.” Please…
Her smile was tight. She shook her head slowly, like he just didn’t get it, and pulled free of
his grasp. “Goodbye, Zane.”

His mind spun, thoughts bouncing off the walls of his head as he tried to scrape ideas
together in a last-minute rush. He needed more time. He needed a damn good reason for her to
stay, but damn it, he couldn’t think! She turned around, agonizingly slow, and he could see the
muscles in her back through the crispness of her suit.
“Charlie. One last night.” His voice was soft, a plea in the undercurrent that he cursed
himself for exposing. She stopped and he moved forward until his chest was pressed against
her back, one arm wrapping around her waist. He pulled her against him, her body cupping his
perfectly, like it was made for him.
She stiffened, but he didn’t let her go. His arm snug around her, he rubbed his chin lightly
across the back of her neck, letting the stubble scrape gently against her skin. He murmured in
her ear, using the sexiest voice he could muster. His beautiful-girl voice. “Go for a run with me.
Tonight. One run.”
He’d figure something out between then and now. He’d get her back.
