To Capture a Yeti is my second shifter story. My first was a wolf, but this story involves that most elusive of creatures – a Yeti!
I first became interested in the idea of a Yeti romance while watching YouTube videos about climbing Mt. Everest. There I was, in the 100-degree heat, watching videos about people literally freezing up on top of the world’s tallest mountain. I wondered what type of creature could survive in that environment and came up with a Yeti!
Yeti’s are also called the Abominable Snowman, or, in the U.S., Bigfoot. How bit they are if they really exist is the topic of hot debate. Some researchers say they are descendants of giant apes. Others say they are an evolutionary offshoot of humans. Whatever they truly are, I figured they could also be sexy and if they’d survived this long, then they might also have super-secret technology as well.
Pete, my Yeti shifter, shows us that is exactly right. The Yeti’s have transporters and they have their own healing abilities and other rituals as well. They also have a high sex drive and are always searching for their mate!
Kaylee, the heroine, is determined to prove to the world that Yeti’s exist. But after meeting Pete, she discovers some secrets might be better kept to herself and Pete’s true nature is one of them!
“Stay here. I’ll make a fire. You need to get warm.” He brushed a hair from her forehead with more tenderness than she’d expected. His gaze locked onto hers for a few seconds before he snapped his attention away and stalked toward the fireplace.
But by then it was already too late. The dark and heady mix of desire and anger in his eyes had burned through her, singing her heart and leaving her raw. She clutched her hands over her chest, chilled by Pete’s sudden withdrawal. What the hell was his problem? Then it dawned on her. Pete, like a lot of other people, thought she was crazy for thinking Bigfoot was real. He probably wanted to sit her down and give her a stern talking to. Tell her to go home and forget such nonsense. Well, she knew what she’d seen. She wasn’t leaving. “I saw one, you know.” When he made no reply she added, “A Yeti.”
Pete’s back went stiff and he put down the stick he’d been using to poke the fire. “No you didn’t. They don’t exist, Kaylee.”
“Yes I did. He rescued me from the avalanche.”
Pete swiveled on his toes, turning halfway toward her. “That was me, Kaylee. You were hallucinating, that’s all.”
Her mouth fell open. Of all the nerve. Lying right to my face! “I know what I saw, Pete. It wasn’t you.”
He rose, shaking his head. “You’re lucky to be alive right now, Kaylee. Give up this fantasy of yours and get some sleep. Things will appear more rational in the morning.”
Was he telling her to shut the fuck up? So he does think I’m crazy? Asshole. What a jerk. I’ll show him. I’ll… She swept the covers off and plunged her feet toward the floor. Caught in the heat of the moment, her adrenaline spiking, she shot to standing with her fists out and fury close to the surface. I’ve had enough of these non-believers. She took a step and teetered. The room did that spinny thing again and she sank into a downward spiral.
Pete appeared from nowhere, his arms circling her waist and shoulders. “Easy now.”
“You take that back. I did see a Yeti. I did!” Her hands were still fisted, but her voice lacked venom. She sagged into the comfort of his embrace again, telling herself this was the last time she would let this man hold her. But when she looked up at his face, all her anger melted.
The searing intensity of his eyes shot sparks of green and amber toward her. His arms clutched her tighter than necessary, crushing her body to his. She had no way and no desire to escape. Every place their bodies met, hers heated, and his hardened cock pressed into her thigh. Already primed and aroused, a thundering wave of desire crashed over her, causing her to let out a breathy moan.
“Kaylee,” he groaned. “Please, don’t do that.”
