A Day in the Life of Tessa


Before I became a werewolf, I used to have a normal day, but not so much anymore. I’ve learned to go with the flow, because no matter what shit is going to happen. That said, Dastien and I usually start the day with a run—most of the time in human form. I like to listen to music when running, and it’s not exactly easy to wear earbuds as a wolf. 😉 

There’s always a lot of eating. And now that I’m on the new council, a lot of checking with other Alphas. I’m leaving the covens and fey courts to Claudia and Cosette unless they ask for help. But the Alphas are keeping me busy enough. I go on patrol a few times a week, but have been called out of bed on my nights off. It’s annoying, but part of the job.

The other thing I’ve been doing is watching a ton of HGTV. Dastien and I are starting to think about what we want our house to look like. At first, I wasn’t sure what I wanted, but we’re slowly figuring it out. Mostly by ruling things out we don’t like and seeing what’s left.

My parents keep asking about college, but I’m not too worried about that yet. I’ve got so much on my plate with the council (which still needs a name!) that I don’t know when I’d find the time. And with no word when or if St. Ailbe’s will open again, I still don’t know what’s going to happen with that whole graduating high school thing. 

Dastien has been helping me train a lot, which is fun. Claudia, Beth, Shane, and River have been helping me with my witchcraft, which is less fun. They all have such different takes on magic, and for every one thing I learn, there seems to be ten more that I don’t. Magic is like a giant can of worms…

Chris is still missing, but Cosette hasn’t given up looking for him. For now, I’m just biting my nails and waiting. I know if she needs me, she’ll say something. Right? 

Shit. I guess I better text her again. :/

But I guess that’s my day in nutshell. If you want to know more, just ask!

For the first time since Tessa met Dastien, life is quiet. The evil witch, Luciana, is six glorious feet under, St. Ailbe’s is closed due to human trespassers, and people are finally getting used to the fact that supernaturals exist in the world. It seems like the perfect time for a honeymoon.

Tessa and Dastien’s trip to the Caribbean is turning out to be the honeymoon that fantasies are made of—sunset cruises, long walks on the beach, and every romantic cliché you can imagine. She couldn’t be happier. So, when a local man turns up inexplicably dead on the beach, Tessa brushes it off. Not every bad thing that happens in the world is a supernatural mystery to be solved. And when Sebastian—one of the Council of Seven Alphas who rule all the werewolves—appears on the island, she thinks it must be a coincidence. Everyone needs a break now and then. Even council members. Right? Besides, Tessa is beyond determined to not let anything get in the way of her romantic vacation.

But when Dastien goes missing, the honeymoon is most definitely over. Tessa can’t ignore the signs anymore. Something huge is going on. And whoever messed with Tessa’s mate is in for a rude awakening. Because if there’s one thing fighting rogue witches and werewolves has taught her, it’s how to be Alpha.
