As if being newly single isn’t brutal enough, Sloane Chatfield's friends are getting obnoxious about setting her up.

Everything is falling apart, he’s running out of money, and now there's an opinionated American lass parked at his best table, driving him mad.

It’s either the beginning or the end for Sadie James. She came to the small Adirondack town of Andora looking for a fresh start. One that didn’t include the pitying looks of strangers who saw her on the news. Only days into her new life and already she is in trouble. That is, unless the wolf in front of her was salivating at the sight of some other woman in the vast forest around her.

After killing his sister, Tyson searched for oblivion the only way he knew how to. As a wolf he could run from the life he left behind and become the animal he always was. The time between lucidness grows longer each times he surfaces. One day he won’t be able to come back at all. It was the only thing he looked forward to until a lost woman fell at his feet.

Sadie is in danger and she is blind to it. Although, it was never proven, Tyson always believed Jack was behind his sister’s ultimate demise. Now Jack has his sights set on Sadie. Can he fight the pull of the wild or will he let her face the wolves alone?

Stupid, foolish woman. It was the first time in 330 days that Tyson wanted to change to human just so he could yell at this blonde ditz clomping around the forest ruining the peace of the day. If scaring away his venison dinner wasn’t bad enough, she was totally unaware of her surroundings. Not even two minutes ago she almost stepped on a rattle snake in those shiny new boots of hers. This is why he didn’t do the human thing anymore. They were all too loud and blunderous. Wolves on the other hand were graceful, lethal.

Oh for fuck’s sake. That’s poison ivy you idiot.

In all honesty, he could excuse all of that if she wasn’t so damn beautiful that he felt compelled to follow her. It actually pissed him off when he saw her smile with those stormy gray eyes of hers. They were a cool gray that was almost blue, the hues all shades of a hurricane right off the ocean. Her hair was as light as honeysuckle. It was natural too, no chemical smells coming off her at all, and it had shimmers of sun lightened highlights.

Since he was having a momentary mental lapse and was being surprisingly honest, he was actually angry at himself. Self-loathing was all he allowed himself to feel for almost a year. He didn’t deserve attraction. He shouldn’t be feeling interested in the lost woman who, Gaia help him, made him want to be a man again so he could yell at her properly. When you kill your sister, your last living family member, because she was brainwashed into being a traitor, a threat to the pack, and it was your job to remove those threats, you lose your right to feel attraction. And any other of the “good” feelings.

Her small wilting frame called out to all of his instincts, human and wolf. It had been awhile since he followed his human instincts, been awhile since he even felt them. So the careless woman, who spoke to his wolf and human alike, who pissed him off with her golden hair and startling gray eyes, who’s ignorance in the world around her made him growl in frustration, was now under his protection.

Chapter Ten
The Cerebrum

“Ah, the renowned Avery Tran. Pleased to meet you.”  Dr. Faulk extended his hand and Avery graciously accepted. “So, shall we get on with it?”
The group followed Dr. Faulk into the back of the clinic. The walls were grey in here as well and there was a long row of patient rooms. Barton Faulk led them to a room at the end of the hall. It was unlike what Avery thought it would be. She had envisioned something more horrifying. The room was very bright and painted a pale yellow, however. The walls had been painted with a jungle theme: monkeys, elephants, gorillas, and tigers filled the room with life, making it look quite whimsical. The CT scanner stood alone in the middle of the room. The outside of the machine was square but it had a round opening and a mechanical bed placed inside it. On the mechanical bed was thin paper. A piece of folded up cloth lay on the bed. Doc- tor Faulk picked it up.
“Avery would you mind putting this on?” he asked. “Sure, that’s fine. Where is the bathroom?” she replied.
“This way, Avery.” Doctor Faulk showed her where the bathroom was.
“Please take off your bra. You can leave your underwear on. Thank you, Avery.” One of the police officers, a female one, went into the bathroom with her.
“Is this really necessary, Lorenzo?” Avery asked. “Yes.” Avery sighed.
She closed the door and examined the clinic’s gown. It was white with blue diamond shapes printed on it. It was not very comfortable and exposed her back. To make matters worse, the female police officer stared at her intently.
“Enjoying yourself?” Avery asked.
“You think I enjoy being locked in a room with a serial killer? The answer is no, but this is part of the job. I signed up to serve and protect.”
“I didn’t do it. My twin Venice did all of it.” The officer laughed, and didn’t respond. She flipped her blond ponytail in displeasure.
Finally, Avery faced her fate. She was placed on the exam- ination table of the CT machine. The officers couldn’t cuff her to the table, since Dr. Faulk complained it would distort the images.
As the CAT scanner took pictures of her body, Avery thought of her mother Muoi. She wondered who would bury her mother. Peter was too unstable to plan funeral arrange- ments. Anna and her husband would probably step up to the plate and do the heavy lifting. She dreaded the thought of spending life in prison, or even facing the death penalty. What she dreaded even more was the thought of going to the nail salon without her mother. All the gossiping and  memories there with Muoi: it would never be the same.
After the CT scan Avery sat in one of the small patient rooms, waiting for Dr. Lisa Sen to come into the room. She was running late. There were only two police officers in the room. The rest stood outside. Lorenzo paced back and forth. He was nervous. What if Avery didn’t have a parasitic twin in her? What would his argument be to the jury? He was going up against Clark Singleton. This Dallas district attorney has a ruth- less reputation.
“Oh, my, I am so sorry, I am late,” Lisa Sen said, opening the door. She glanced around the cramped room. She had an olive complexion and dark eyes to match her hair color.
“You guys can wait outside,” Lorenzo mentioned to the officers. “She isn’t going anywhere. Don’t be buffoons, there are no windows. How can she escape?” he answered as one of the officers opened his mouth to protest.
“So, let’s see what we have here.” Lisa Sen put one of the images up on the board. She switched on the light.
“Oh, this is a horrible image. Let’s use another one.” “Doctor, is  it  possible  the  parasitic  twin  can control Avery?” She had never heard the term parasitic twin, but now it made sense to Avery. It clicked perfectly with Venice’s story about them being sisters.
“Anything is possible, I just need to get a better image.” Dr. Sen adjusted her black-rimmed glasses.
“Ah, I see it now. Yes, there it is connected to her spinal cord.” She pointed to a massive cerebrum. “I didn’t expect this at all. Oh, wow. It looks like it is even functioning. Just like a regular cerebrum would.”
“What is a cerebrum?” Avery asked.
“A brain, dear.”
“What, so Venice is a brain?”
“I believe so… the medical definition of a parasitic twin is an undeveloped twin who is completely dependent on the complete fetus called an autosite.” Dr. Sen started shuffling through more images. “I can’t believe it, amazing! Just fascinating, I have never seen anything like this.”
“Dr. Sen, can you prove that this twin can take control of her body in court?”
“Why, certainly. I just can’t believe it. This is a scientific discovery. It must be studied and recorded.”
“What do you think I am? Some lab rat to be used at your disposal?” Avery was enraged by the doctor’s reaction.
“Now, now, Avery. Calm yourself. Remember she is here to aid you.”
“Can’t you get rid of it?” Avery asked Lisa Sen.
“This is a breakthrough to science! How can I destroy it? It is beautiful! I have never encountered an unequally conjoined twin that was alive!”
“That’s it! I am going to destroy her once and for all. I know where she’s located now.” Avery grabbed a needle off the counter. Lorenzo lunged at her and tried to restrain her.
“Guards, guards, guards!” he screamed. The police officers came busting through the door and restrained the deranged Avery. Dr. Sen injected Avery with a tranquilizer.
