Eva2I have a little fun over on Paranormal Love Features and Paranormal Love Wednesdays, from time to time. Yes, Silken Sheets, I’m cheating on you, but hey, I also have my own blog too, so you’ll just have to live with it!

My last post on Paranormal Love Features was about dominant alpha males. Wolf shifters, to be precise, although the picture I used was of a tiger (that’s another story, to follow!). How exactly can their power emanate from them and affect others? Women, specifically?

In Sexy to Go, my ongoing shifter story involves (2) female characters who just happen to be mated to each other: Casi and Dahlia. Both of them got pregnant at the same time, and both go into labor at the same time – when the most dominant alpha male of the tribes comes calling aka: Casi’s long-lost father.

How? Well, his shifter / animal power is so great that it overrides their human body impulses. Akin to the power of animal attraction, it fires up the lower chakras intensely. A very strong shifter’s power could probably even make a woman come, from thirty paces away. Woot!

But the big trouble is that the energy can also have dangerous consequences. Casi’s dad calls to her wolf, and it’s the wrong thing to happen at the wrong time!

Here’s what happens to Casi and Dahlia:

Casi came off the bed and paused, one hand automatically going to her belly. “Wait. I feel funny.”

“What is it?”

“I think… It’s …” One strong cramp hit her and she cried out, then liquid trickled down her legs. “Oh, damn. I think my water broke.” Gasping, she looked up at Dahlia, searching for support.

Dahlia produced a phone she’d had hidden somewhere on her body and dialed. “Liam? It’s time. We need to get Casi to the hospital right now.” Ample swearing could be heard on the other end, and Snake’s concerned voice, too. “Okay. We will meet you here.” She snapped the phone shut and turned to Casi. “Do you have a bag already packed? What about a robe?”

Casi pointed to the robe on the end of the bed and her bag, sitting on the chair next to the dining table. Dahlia wrapped her in the robe, grabbed the bag and started them toward the door.

When Casi put her hand on the doorknob, her body flushed hot. A thousand prickles tingled over her skin, precursors of something bigger, but she didn’t know what. It felt almost as if … almost … Oh, God. Was she going to shift? But I can’t do that. The baby. Demanding her body remain in human form, she stubbornly opened the door.

Behind her, Dahlia let out a sharp cry. Casi’s senses picked up her distress, the cramp that ran through her mate was the same as hers a moment ago. Then, she scented the additional liquid. Dahlia had just entered labor, too. But how, or why? Stunned, Casi focused her attention on the figure in front of the door. A large man silhouetted against the bright sunlight, his face nearly in shadow. But from what she could see of it, he looked familiar. As if she’d known him long ago… Suddenly the details snapped into place. She could hardly find breath to say the words that burned through her throat on the way out.

“Hello, dad.”
