Title: The Dilemma (Sirius Wolves #5)
Author: Victoria Sue
Publisher: Dark Hallows Press
Genre: M/M Romance, Paranormal

Blurb:

Marcus has just become the only human ever to be Alpha of a werewolf pack and thwarted the plans of Anubis to destroy the goddess Sirius’ creation – the werewolves.

Now, Anubis has decided to focus his efforts instead on Marcus and his new pack, to try and destroy the pack from within. In order to do this, Anubis seeks the one thing Marcus wants above all else and when he finds it, will use that to get him to walk away from his mates and the pack.

Unaware of the evil god’s plans, Marcus works together with Kellan and Ricoh, not only trying to help Nate recover from the vicious torture he has undergone at the hands of the terrorist group, The Winter Circle, but to also come to terms with leading a pack of over two thousand wolves.

Marcus soon will be faced with a dilemma, but will he give everything up for his mates and the pack or will the temptation Anubis offers him be too much for one human to refuse? Will Marcus put his wolves before himself or will he be tricked into leaving them behind forever?

Excerpt

Marcus had enjoyed the last hour. He’d felt he was drowning before he’d spoken to Matt, but the doc might just be able to give him the lifeline he needed. Marcus wanted to hug himself in excitement. Matt had been really good. He’d told him loads of things about werewolves in general and Marcus had soaked up the information like a sponge. When he realized they’d been talking for an hour he stood up. It wasn’t fair on Kellan, and he was convinced he was actually physically missing them. He also needed to check on Ricoh, and make sure he was back, and then they both needed to talk. He wasn’t convinced Ricoh was over Hunter. He wasn’t convinced at all.
Matt followed Marcus out the door and into the café. Matt promised to speak to Marcus tomorrow after he had spoken to his friend about the robotic limb trial, when the door to the upstairs crashed open.
“Marcus.” It was Nate. Marcus jumped and took an automatic step forward towards him. What the hell? Nate saw him and took two shaky steps forward.
Then out of the corner of his eye, Marcus suddenly realized things were going to go very badly wrong. The Alphas opened the door to one of the meeting rooms and walked out with Ben. Darric roared with laughter and clapped Conner on the back. At the very instant Darric moved, his striking silver hair swishing down his back, Nate turned at the noise, and saw Darric.
Darric. The wolf Nate thought he had shot and killed. The wolf that had been miraculously brought back to life by the goddess Sirius. The wolf that Nate didn’t know was alive.
Marcus lunged forward. He ignored the searing pain in his leg, ignored the cacophony as Kellan and Ricoh burst through the door, ignored the piercing scream of complete terror from Nate. As Nate’s eyes rolled up in his head and his legs crumbled, Marcus caught him before he hit the floor.
Everyone rushed forward. Matt just beat Darric and Conner. Matt immediately checked Nate’s heart rate and breathing. Marcus was panting nearly as fast as Ricoh. “The clinic,” Matt started.
“No,” Marcus thundered, and everyone grew quiet. Lilly shooed a few stragglers away from the café. Kellan bent down to Marcus.
“Upstairs?”
Marcus nodded. He was kneeling awkwardly on his remaining knee as he’d gone down to catch Nate. Kellan lifted Marcus up quickly and waited while Marcus got his balance.
“Can we help?” Darric said quietly.
Marcus shook his head. No one would take Nate off him. He took a step towards the door and pressed his lips together as agony ricocheted through his leg. Kellan made a soft noise in his throat, but Marcus couldn’t look at him. He walked steadily up the stairs, keeping his focus on Nate the whole time, and ignoring all the others who followed. He stared at Nate’s white face. His heart pounded against his ribs with every breath. Conner had warned them. He had said it was going to get worse. What if Nate had finally been pushed over the edge? While Marcus had sat drinking coffee and selfishly wanting more than he had, his fragile boy might have finally been pushed too far, and it would be all Marcus’ fault.
