The Chupacabra has been a legend for decades, stretching from South America to North America, sighted in many place. Ranchers swore they’d killed it only to have it turn out to be a mutated goat or coyote. And the killing spree continued—animals and humans alike. Was it a wolf because of the way the bodies were mutilated? Or a vampire, because each body and three puncture wounds at the neck and was drained of blood? Each time someone was sure he had killed the beast it turned out to be a false alarm, because the killings continued. And the legend continued to grow.
When billionaire Craig Stafford’s wife and daughter were killed by the legendary bloodthirsty Chupacabra and none of the state or federal agencies could trace the half man/half animal, he funded his own team. He chose carefully from the best law enforcement agencies as well as the private sector across the country. Six of the eight selected are shifters themselves, each representing a wolf pack whose members had fallen prey to killers. Each one of them had also been affected by the beast and so had personal reasons to find and kill it. Known simply as The Night Seekers (because they hunt most effectively at night), they work from an isolated ranch property in Texas, with all the latest high tech equipment and any other resources they might need. Their only mission: find and stop the Chupacabra, the bloodthirsty animal who not only kills but literally destroys his victims with his teeth and nails, and has given rise to so many legends.
But first they have to discover how their target moves so easily around the entire country, and sift through the hundreds of files compiled on the many cases and sightings.
Driven by the thirst for revenge and the need to satisfy their lust, each member of the team will have his or her own story, one liberally packed with erotic sex, and in the course of the mission will find a relationship that brings stability to their lives. And with each relationship, the team continues to grow.
First there was:
Lust By Moonlight
And now comes:
Branded By Lust
Logan Tanner has been tracking the Chupacabra since the beast killed his sister in a terrible way. Joining The Night Seekers was an opportunity for him to expand his resources and find others who agreed that the beast often left Texas to feast in other states. Or, as some suggested, was it a pack, spreading out to satisfy their lust? The group is celebrating Clint and Sophia’s wedding when they Logan’s former brother-in-law, a deputy sheriff, sends him a fax about a killing Montana that has all the earmarks of the Chupacabra.
He begs them to send someone to investigate because his boss won’t listen to him. By now the team is convinced that not only is there more than one devil breast but also some mad genius is breeding them. Finding that hidden laboratory is even more important than tracking the beasts. Going home is a mixed blessing for Logan. He misses his home state and the small ranch that a manager runs for him. But unpleasant memories await him, the gruesome deaths of his sister and brother-in-law, as well as the sudden reappearance of an old flame, Jade Robinson.
Logan is worried about Jade because she’s living alone at the outside of town in a setting ideal for a Chupacabra attack. But he doesn’t want his concern for her to cause problems with Rebecca. Their relationship has heated up so much they could melt the snow outside. As they proceed to track the creature two more bodies turn up. The people in the county want to blame it on Ben Crater, a newcomer to the area and a loner, but Logan and Rebecca meet him and before long recognize him as a shifter. He helps them track the devil beast and, just as in other situations, trap and kill him. They convince Ben to return to home base with them for a little while, meet Jason Stafford and explore possible association with Night Seekers. They are barely home when word arrives of yet more killings. Now finding the breeding ground is more urgent than ever.
