information, and this was the only way to get it.
    Maggie’s voice was low and shaky. “Get the silver chains and wrap him in them. He will be strong once the change is complete. We need to get him into some kind of cell. He’ll want to feed, so nobody should get near the cage. When a vampire first changes, they’re at their strongest.”
    Pennson and Jamie had already gotten the chains and started wrapping his body up. “Let’s move him now before he wakes up,” Ryder ordered. The two Betas hoisted him and started carrying him to the vehicles.
    Judd stood and scooped Maggie into his arms. “Come on, baby. You need to rest now.” Maggie laid her head against his shoulder and closed her eyes as he carried her to the car. She needed to rest, or she wouldn’t be of any help to anyone. Her last thoughts were of the danger that was coming.

    J udd stopped again in the middle of pacing the room to watch her. Shit, who was he kidding—he was eyeing her like a dog in heat. Her shirt rose up just a little bit, exposing a strip of pale skin. Everything about this woman tempted him. All he wanted to do was taste her and never let her go. Could he make this work? Would the fact that she was a vampire stop him? No, he told himself. No, she was his. The fates wouldn’t have paired them together if this was wrong. Maggie was a kind woman who just happened to be a vampire. He’d work through his feelings, and they would look back on these times as ones that almost kept them apart, but he wouldn’t allow that to happen.
    Judd started pacing again. What if she discovered she didn’t want him anymore? He stopped and looked in the mirror, staring at himself. “What if she doesn’t want me?” he whispered.
    “What if I do?” Judd looked up to find her awake and watching him. “I can feel what you’re thinking. I’ve wanted you ever since I first saw you, but when you ran away from me, I tried to put it out of my head. I don’t want to be hurt again.”
    Judd stalked over to the bed. “I wanted you too, but I was…”
    Putting her hand up to his face, Maggie stared into his eyes. “Scared. I understand that, but if we’re going do this, then let’s do it together.”
    That was all he needed to hear. He lowered his lips to hers, and for the first time tasted what was to be his.
    Her lips tasted like blackberries in the wild just after it rained. She was addicting. His tongue chased hers, then hit her fang, and both of them jerked away from each other. Her hand went to her mouth. “I’m sorry. They’ll come out when…” She wouldn’t look him in the face, and she backed away from him.
    “If it nicked me, what would happen?”
    Her face was stricken with sadness as she spoke. “It would turn you.”
    He pulled away and sat back against the bed. “Has there ever been a shifter who was part vampire?”
    “I’ve never seen or heard of one. Vampires don’t approve of mixing bloodlines. That’s the reason we can’t be together. I would never do that to you.” Maggie moved to the edge of the bed, shaking her head. “It won’t work, Judd, no matter how much we want it to. It just won’t work.” She pushed herself off the bed and left the room.
    He sat there, going over and over what she’d said. She said there’d never been a shifter-vampire hybrid that she knew of, but that didn’t mean there couldn’t be one. He’d just never thought about the possibility of being turned. Why in the hell had he never considered that? If she bit him he’d turn into a vampire and the bloodlust would be unbearable, but they would never be truly bonded if she didn’t. He wouldn’t be able to be around his pride. What if he hurt one of them and turned into someone just like Roman Locke?
    Slamming his hand against the bed, Judd got up and reached for his cell phone. Damn it; there had to be another way. He ran a hand through his hair as he dialed.
    “Hello,” the voice on the other end answered.
    “Me-Len, I need some
