(DIrty Blook #3)
by Heather Hildenbrand (
YA - Paranormal
If I had to choose one word to sum up all of my problems, this would be it.
Without hybrids, I wouldn’t have to watch my best friend slowly becoming a monster. Without hybrids, I could let go of the mentality “hunt or be hunted.” CHAS wouldn’t be scouring the Earth, intent on slaughtering and using Alex to do it. Without hybrids, I wouldn’t have to be on guard that losing my temper meant losing my shape. There would be no monster inside me, struggling to get out.
Then again, without hybrids, I wouldn’t have Wesley St. John.
Heather Hildenbrand was born and raised in a small town in northern Virginia where she was homeschooled through high school. She now lives in coastal VA, a few miles from the Atlantic Ocean, with her husband and two adorable children. She works from home, part time, as a property manager and when she's not furiously pounding at the keyboard, or staring off into space whilst plotting a new story, she's helping her husband with DIY projects in their home (he woodworks - she paints) or she's lying on the beach, soaking in those delicious, pre-cancerous rays.
Heather loves Mexican food, hates socks with sandals, and if her house was on fire, the one thing she'd grab is her DVR player.

Pack leader: State your name.
Wes: Wesley St. John
Pack leader: Do you know why you’re here?
Wes: So you can determine my loyalty and commitment to the leadership position being given.
Pack leader: Offered. Not given. Not yet. Do you think you’d make a good leader?
Wes: I don’t think I’d make a bad one. *sees Jack glaring at him across the table* Uh, I mean, yes.
Pack leader: Why?
Wes: Because I know what it takes to reach our goal.
Pack leader: And what is that? *asks sarcastically*
Wes: Peace isn’t possible without war *says quietly*
Pack leader: You sound like you’re looking for fight, boy. Only a young, naïve kid would go looking.
Wes: I’m not looking *jaw hardens* But I can see well enough to know one is coming. And I’m willing to meet it head-on. I won’t run or hide from what’s necessary.
Pack leader: I think we’re more worried you’ll run toward the fight than away. Don’t forget you wouldn’t be running alone. As a leader, you’d take all of us with you. How does that sit with you?
Wes: *glances around table from Jack to Derek to Fee to Cord* These people—all of you—are my family. I would not put my family in needless danger. But I would not stand by and allow us to be plowed over, either. We will stand and fight. For ourselves. For each other. That is not something I’ve decided. It’s a principal I’ve been taught. By you.
Pack leader: *nods* Fair enough. And what do you think, if anything, holds you back from always putting your family first?
Wes: I will always put first the ones that I love.
Pack leader: that can be both good and bad.
Wes: *pauses* I know.
