Bring on the Hunter Clan!

First, I’d like to thank Guys Like Romances Too! for having me back again.
Because they have been so kind, today I’m going to give you a never before seen sneak peek at His Silent Mate [Hunter Clan 4] due out August 14th. So enjoy!!!

His Silent Mate [Hunter Clan 4]

Jayden McLeod is used to betrayal. After years spent at the hands of an enemy and unable to speak after his own brother was forced to suppress his voice, he struggles to connect with the people around him. Particularly his mate.
As a Wolf-Shifter/Spirit Mage hybrid, Rhys Scott is used to hiding who he really is. When Rhys learns what the Spirit element has done to his mate, he is hesitant to reveal his true self to Jayden. Like all secrets though, the truth is revealed and Rhys must prove to his mate that he is worth a second chance.
Things become more dangerous when the Clan discovers Potestas is closer than they thought, and are no longer playing by the rules. With new allies and unknown enemies, the pair must learn to trust one another, and except themselves if they stand a chance of surviving.

Panting heavily, Jayden McLeod willed his tired body to keep going as he stumbled over another tree root. His legs throbbed, sweat dripped down his back, and his arms groaned in protest as he picked his younger sister up off the ground again. Neither of them could afford to stop, and as hard as this was on him, he knew Lily must be in agony too.
Just a little bit further.
Jayden still couldn’t believe they had managed to get away. After years of being held by the group, Potestas, their brother Blake had found a way to sneak them onto one of the courier trucks that came in and out of the industrial area Potestas had currently housed themselves in.
As suddenly as the opportunity came, the need to be quick and stealthy meant that they had to leave their brother Derrick behind. Derrick was a little slow after Potestas had messed with his mind too many times. He wasn’t dumb, he just had trouble understanding some things and needed them explained differently. Unfortunately that and his size meant he never would have been capable of sneaking his large, bulking frame onto the truck, and they didn’t have time to explain things to him. His heart clenched at the thought of what those bastards might be doing to his brothers, but he had to focus on Lily. Blake had trusted him to get her somewhere safe.
He knew the general direction he was supposed to head in. Blake had given him vague directions to the Hunter Clan, where they would find their brothers, Sawyer and Riley. Blake told them that Elijah should be there too, and once they got there they would be safe.
Safe? Yeah, feeling real cosy.
Safe wasn’t exactly how Jayden was feeling right now. The outside perimeter of the Hunter Clan was lined with scouts Jayden knew belonged to Potestas. On the grounds of the estate itself, Jayden could hear the howls, shouts, and growls which meant they were in the middle of a battle.
As they crept through the dense bushes surrounding the estate, Jayden made sure he and Lily kept out of sight.
“Jayden? How are we supposed to get past those scouts and the fighting?” Lily’s voice trembled as she asked.
He frowned. Lily had a point. Staring down at her, seeing the fear in her eyes, made him mad. Not being able to use words to comfort her, made him angrier. Potestas had taken a lot from him, but they day they forced Blake to suppress his voice was one of the worst because now he couldn’t even reassure his terrified sister. Jayden felt useless, not even being able to shout for help, and he would never feel whole again.
Damn Potestas!
Unable to do anything else, Jayden pressed a finger to his lips and jerked his head to the left, indicating for his sister to follow him. As they neared what looked like the main house Jayden cringed. There was a hell of a lot of fighting going on, and Potestas looked like they were winning.
Christ. I hope Sawyer and Riley are okay.
Holding Lily tight to him, Jayden clamped his hand over her mouth when she let out a squeak. They could not afford to be found yet, especially when a Warlock stepped out behind the largest Wolf Jayden had ever seen, raising his hand with an energy blast. Jayden panicked for just a second before another large Wolf, not as big as the first but close, leapt onto the Warlock. The brown and gray animal took the Warlock down then jumped back, darting away from a blast.
Jayden held his breath as the Wolf darted out of the way of each strike, landing a few blows with his claws. Watching them fight, he knew that the two Wolves he had seen so far must be high up in the Clan, and wondered if either of them were Jacob Hunter, Kayan and Sawyer’s mate.
When the Warlock swayed on the spot, Jayden took a step back further into the bushes, not wanting Lily to see the Wolf strike his enemy down. He knew why the Wolf would have to, but didn’t want Lily to witness such a thing. She had seen enough.
Unfortunately his foot must have landed on a stick because he heard it crack and both men shot their gaze in his direction.
Oh shit! We are so dead.

Dmitri’s Little Spitfire [Hunter Clan 3]
Elijah Collins is ashamed. Used to hurt his friends by Potestas, he now finds it hard to even look someone in the face. Especially Dmitri, his mate. When a truth about Elijah is discovered, Potestas also find out. Now that they know his true worth, he becomes an even bigger target than before.
Dimitri Kalas has always prided himself on being calm and in control. It is his job to help protect his Clan, and most importantly his mate. But when he finds out that the people responsible for hurting his Kayan’s mate have also been abusing his mate, he becomes incensed.
Will Dimitri be able to convince his mate that he is worth love and forgiveness? Or will Elijah allow his guilt to consume him and turn himself over to the enemy in order to keep his friends safe?
