Wolf’s Pass Shifters 1

Nessa’s Two Shifters

Convincing his twin to help him claim Nessa Clemmons as their mate is one battle Jessup Shoewater plans to win quickly. Joseph thinks he is too broken to take care of a mate, with or without his twin’s help. Held captive and tortured, Joe thought he’d lost the human side of himself.

Nessa wants to believe Jess and Joe truly care for her, but pledging herself to two men, let alone wolf shifters, seems a little like jumping out of the frying pan into the fire. Having survived years of abuse from her step-brother, Nessa hesitates to trade one familiar situation for another one she knows nothing about.

Can she overcome her fears of inadequacy and the unknown to help Joe learn to trust himself and his ability to control his wolf, or will she turn away from the two men who open up a world of love and acceptance she’s never felt before?

Note: There is no sexual relationship or touching for titillation between or among siblings.

Chapter One


The pain was mind shattering. It felt as if his entire body was on fire from the silver blade that had sliced into him over and over again. They knew what he was and had come prepared to inflict pain and death in the most excruciating way they could.

Joseph Shoewater had no idea how much time had passed since he had been captured, but he was well aware of the slices they had made up and down his body. Weak from blood loss and pain, he could only endure and pray for it to end soon. He didn’t expect to be rescued since he wasn’t supposed to have been there in the first place. They had all known when they accepted the appointments to the special team that they would work off the record in their new positions.

Even though he knew struggling was useless, he couldn’t help but pull against the chains that held him captive as they got busy over his body once more. White-hot fire tore into his flesh and…

Joseph came awake with the taste of fear and anger bitter in his mouth. The dream seemed so real. He could almost smell his blood there in the room with him. The pounding of his heart matched the pounding in his head from the reoccurring nightmare he couldn’t seem to escape. It had been nearly ten years since he’d come back from that mission a changed man. Now he spent most of his time as his beast, living day to day as far away from humans as possible. Or he had been until his brothers had called him home.

There was no way he would get back to sleep again now. He climbed out of bed and stretched the kinks out of his muscles before deciding to take a quick shower. His brothers would be up soon anyway, and they could get whatever was going on out in the open so he could leave. When Levi, his oldest brother, located him and called him back home, Joseph thought about what was wrong for them to have wanted him back. They had gotten in late the night before, and it was decided that they would talk the next day after everyone had gotten a good night’s sleep. Right. Like that was going to happen.

The pulsing spray of the shower did little to relax him, but it did wash away some of the months of living in the wilds of Montana. As soon as he was finished washing, Joseph shut off the water and stepped out of the shower to dry off. He didn’t bother wiping off the mirror so he could see. He’d shaved in the shower and already knew what he looked like without the benefit of glass to reflect the features of his ruined body back at him.

No matter what scenario he came up with for why they needed him home, nothing seemed important enough. As shifters, they didn’t get sick and they healed most injuries without much difficulty. Nothing short of silver to the heart or decapitation could kill them. God knows he had proven that to be true.

His family was descended from a long line of wolf shifters. They were blessed to live close to two hundred years of age. His parents and his seven brothers lived on Shoewater land outside the town of Wolf’s Pass, Montana. Until recently, everyone had lived in the family home where he now stood, but two years ago, his parents had built a house a couple of miles down the road and moved out. They said it was time for them to retire and leave running the ranch to them.

The door to the bathroom opened and Jessup walked in. His twin’s initial smile slid south when Joseph scowled back at him.

“Morning. Did you sleep?” Jessup didn’t back away when Joseph stepped toward the door.

“Sure. I’m going to start coffee.” Joseph pushed past his twin and stepped out of the bathroom.

He stopped midstride when a strange scent caught his attention.
. And it was coming from his brother. He growled deep in his chest and turned back toward the bathroom. Jessup stared at him. A cautious expression filled his brother’s face. Joseph stared back at him for several long seconds, his jaw tightening. Drawing on all his strength, Joseph turned around and walked back to his room to drag on jeans and a shirt.

The entire time it took him to dress his mind screamed,
mate, mate!
Now he knew why he had been called back. Jessup had found his mate. They wanted to know if she was Joseph’s mate as well. It didn’t matter. He wouldn’t subject a mate to his volatile existence. There was a reason he stayed away from everyone. He wasn’t safe to be around. They had broken something inside of him back all those years ago and nothing could make it right again.

By the time Jessup made it to the kitchen, Joseph had the coffee made and was drinking his while staring out the French doors. They led out onto a patio and offered a view of the glorious mountains where he lived.

“Coffee’s good.” His brother leaned back against the counter, watching him as he sipped the black liquid.

Joseph grunted and turned back around to stare outside again.

“Do you need any supplies while you’re in town?”

“I’ll get them before I leave.”

“I knew I smelled coffee.” Levi walked into the room.

Joseph didn’t bother turning around. He could see his two brothers in the reflection of the glass. Levi, at just over six feet, was the shortest of his brothers, but he was the Alpha of the family. It didn’t matter that all of them had been born as alphas in the pack, his brother was the lead wolf and in line to rule when their fathers stepped down.

He and Jessup were third in age but the tallest of the brothers. At six foot five only a handful of others in town could claim that height. It served them well when they had been growing up. Being the tallest around gave them advantages the others didn’t have. Now all of that seemed so petty and juvenile. Height and weight didn’t make a man or a wolf. It only added a slight advantage. Skill and experience were the true measures of a man.

He and his brother shared the same dark eye color as well as their long black hair. Where his was past his shoulders, his twin kept his shoulder length. Since he spent so much time in his wolf form, Joseph didn’t see much reason to worry about his hair or appearance.

Aaron walked in and stood next to Levi. He was between Levi and them in age. He and Levi constantly argued good naturedly between them, but were close. When Levi took over as Alpha, Aaron would be his Beta. He and the rest of his brothers were the enforcers of the pack.
