Alpha Squad: Showdown by Lorelei Moone ❤️ Book Tour & Gift Card Giveaway ❤️ (Bear Shifter Romance)



Sean McMillan has always lived a life more human than shifter. Upon joining Alpha Squad he is thrust into a whole new world which is taking some getting used to. When two shifters turn up dead under suspicious circumstances in the otherwise quiet town of Inverness, Scotland, Alpha Squad is sent in to uncover the truth. So far, so easy; murder investigations are what Sean does best. Trouble is, one of the witnesses is able to distract him just with her presence. And he can’t shake the feeling that she knows more than what she’s letting on.

Lab assistant Erin Reid thought her work at the research project led by leading Geneticist Professor Blake was benign enough, if excruciatingly boring. Little did she know that they were all embroiled in a deadly conspiracy. When she finds out what she’s been involved in, the resulting guilt weighs heavy on her and she vows to make things right.

What starts off as an ordinary murder investigation quickly turns into something bigger and more dangerous than anyone on Alpha Squad could foresee. Is shifter enemy No. 1 Victor Domnall back with a plan more devious than ever? Can Sean and the squad put all the pieces of the puzzle together before it’s too late?


The shifters he'd come into contact with since Alpha Squad hadn’t fully accepted him either.
Erin was different though. The way she'd looked at him had made him uneasy at first. But now he recognized it as admiration.
Perhaps even love.
No, that would be ridiculous.
What is? her voice asked.
Sean closed his eyes and tried to fight the emotions that threatened to overwhelm.
It was no use.
Her scent tempted him.
Her mere presence had made him agree to things he would have never considered otherwise.
Why can I feel you so keenly now? When earlier I couldn't, he thought.
I don't know, but I'm glad for this.
Sean looked down at her again. Her face was still wet.
A soft drizzle started, depositing gleaming little droplets in her bright red hair.
She was a vision. A Scottish beauty that could inspire legends.
With hands that had grown a mind of their own, he reached for her. Cupping her face, leaning down to meet her lips with his.
She didn't resist, but rather seemed to melt against him.
How could a touch feel so powerful? His fingertips on her moist cheeks.
His kiss merging into hers.
Their minds had become one already. Those deepest, darkest parts of himself which he'd fought an entire lifetime to keep hidden wanted more.
This is inappropriate. You're a suspect.
I'm your partner.
Sean inhaled sharply, letting her perfume fill his lungs. Sweet, like a summer meadow.
Yes. Yes, you are.
Every fiber in his body agreed. They were one in thought. It was only a matter of time before they'd become one in flesh.
With all the self-control he could manage, he pulled away from her. This wasn't the place, nor the time.
It wasn't the kind of man he was either.
She stood frozen in place for a moment, her eyes still closed, her beautiful face a mask of calm.
"Let's get out of here before anyone takes notice," Sean suggested. "I still owe you lunch."
Erin shook her head. "After everything, I'm not hungry anymore."
Sean nodded. She needed to process what had just happened. That was understandable.
I'm sorry.
We'll get to the bottom of this, I promise, he tried to reassure her.
They said their goodbyes, awkwardly.
See you later.
I can't wait.
As Sean watched her walk away, he tried to regain control. He'd given her too much. He'd accepted her help and they would investigate the lab together.
But there'd be no more of this. Sean licked his lips, briefly. He could still taste her.
This was unacceptable. No matter how beautiful she was, or how strongly he felt about her. He couldn't let it happen again, not until the case was over.
