Book Excerpt

 

Excerpt 3:

 She pulled her hair to the side revealing the graceful column of her neck. “Should I play the meek mortal? Let you tap my vein.” Her sensual mouth curled in taunting smile. “My blood, I know you want it, leech.”

Tempting lips. Sexy voice. Bitchy words. Goddamn, he wanted her. “I thought we’d already established, if I wanted your blood I could just take it.” His eyes narrowed. “No. There is something else I want from you right now.”

He advanced. She didn’t back away. Oh, he loved her spirit. Reveled in it. Vampires shrank from him, but not his mortal. He doubted Jordan could even spell retreat.

She moistened her lips, her tiny teeth catching the dip of her bottom lip. He groaned. He’d nibble and lick that bow for her. As if she could read his thoughts, Jordan responded to him. Pink tinted her high cheekbones her breathes grew heavy and the scent of jasmine intensified.

With unfathomable speed, he lunged. Before she could react, he had her hair wrapped around his first. Their bodies slammed together. Soft curves to unyielding muscle.

He had her pinned against the back of the chaise. They both knew with one swift movement he could have her beneath him.

Gabriel tightened his hold on her hair as he drew his other hand up her body. His gloved fingers skimmed the outside of her thigh, gently brushed over the arch of her hip, caressed her side, lightly tickled her ribcage and stopped. His hand hovered just above her breast.

One heartbeat. Two.

Jordan pressed forward; her luscious breast fit his palm perfectly. They both groaned and shuddered from the contact.

“You make me crazed,” Gabriel grated. Tilting his head down, her rubbed his face against her hair, inhaling deep.  “I’ve wanted…” He pressed a kiss to the curve of her neck then to the tip of her ear.

She shivered in his arms. He could sense her need, her desire. It matched his own. Strong. Relentless.

He kneaded her breast, her nipple stiffen beneath her shirt. The pearl abraded his palm, taunting him. Gabriel wanted to taste it, to pull it between his lips. Would she like it if he used his teeth…his fangs?

His cock pulsed. He pressed the hard length against her belly. A shocked, delighted gasp seized in her throat. Jordan’s voice trembled as she whispered his name.

Their gaze locked.

She aches for me just as I ache for her.

He should stop this. Never had a woman enthralled him so…Never had he craved like this. Mindless.

The mortal—magicless, powerless—she’d done this to him.

Gabriel released her breast to grip the swell of her hip. He ground his sex against her.

She’d pay. He’d show her why no one dared tempt a beast.

His vision shifted, his fangs elongated. Yes, he’d show her and he’d take what he wanted.

Pulling her hair, he yanked her head back, exposing her throat. He lean forward and inhaled her scent again, his lungs filled with jasmine and woman. His lips brushed over her pulse, “Beautiful.” He grazed his fangs over her pulse then soothed the reddened flesh with his tongue.

Tiny sighs escaped her lips with every kiss he pressed against her neck, her jaw, her cheek.

“Look at me,” he demanded.

She opened her heavy lidded eyes to peer up at him from beneath thick, dark lashes. Her violet gaze glowed with need, her luscious lips parted as her breaths panted, silently begging for him.

When only a whisper separated their lips, he snarled, “I’ve waited.”

Book Excerpt

Excerpt 2:

“I’ll leave you to your bath.”

Gabriel shifted and began to stand when Jordan’s hands settled atop his shoulders. His body became immobile, his limbs heavy as boulders. He couldn’t pull way even if he’d wanted to and he knew he should want to break free of her hold.

He leaned into her touch.

“Please, wait. One more question.”

He sighed, trying to appear exasperated. “What is it?”

“Did you know I was going to be at the auction house?”

He reluctantly provided the truth and muttered a curse when she smiled. Her violet eyes brightened and Gabriel’s thoughts turned hazy.

“You infiltrated your enemy’s camp to rescue me.” Her breathless whisper sent shock waves through his system, igniting his blood and stiffening his cock. Damn it.

“Thank you.”

Gabriel gave her a quick nod in response and began to rise, but Jordan’s arms wound around his neck and she tugged his head down. Their lips met. Automatically, Gabriel’s tensed. The pressure of her lips was gentle and innocent at first, but this wasn’t like the chaste kiss they shared on the plane. Jordan thrust her tongue into his mouth and…god damn, she was delicious, like fresh berries. He should pull away. He should make her stop. End this now, he told himself. But her kiss was electrifying. He was enraptured.

More. Just a little more.

“Yes,” she sighed. Had he spoken aloud?

Her fingers dug into his shoulders and she raised herself out of the water. His breath slammed from his chest when Jordan pressed her wet body against him. Soft, full breasts crushed against his solid pectorals.

Gabriel’s hands fisted at his sides. He couldn’t touch her. Shouldn’t touch her. He’d lose control. He’d pull her from the tub, pin her to the floor and drive his cock into her. Oh, fuck.

Jordan deepened the kiss, dancing her tongue along his. Demanding more, she began to rub against him. Her stiffened nipples abraded him despite his shirt.

He should stop this. Jordan was: mortal, injured, and weak.

She moaned and he felt the vibration all the way down to his hardened shaft.

Oh, fuck.

Gabriel took command of the kiss, twining their tongues together again and again. Licking. Sucking. He’d kiss her until she could only gasp his name, delirious from pleasure.

Her fingers tunneled through his hair, tugging. “Mmm. More.”

God, her voice, her lips, her taste—drugging. Maddening.

“P-Please,” she gasped, mindless.

Gabriel’s control shattered. More. Yes, he’d give her more. His woman didn’t need to beg. Gabriel released his fists, his fingers greedy for the feel of her silken hair, to feel the weight of her breasts in his palms and to explore the velvet heat between her thighs.

His ears twitched, was that a knock on the bedroom door?

“My king!” Gannon called.

Gabriel wrenched away from her. Panting, he shot to his feet. Anger incinerated his lust, but it did nothing to stop his gaze from roaming over her. Jordan’s skin was flushed, glowing. Her pouting, alluring lips were swollen. She gazed up at him, her eyes hooded, their violet depths darkened with desire.

He spun around before his eyes dropped to her exposed breasts. He ran shaking hands through his hair. “You shouldn’t have done that,” he rasped, his voice rougher than he’d like. God, the little mortal had him trembling in his boots.

“My king!”

He snapped, “Fuck, Gannon, I’ll be right there.” Keeping his gaze averted, Gabriel grabbed a towel and thrust it at Jordan. “Here. Dry off.”

She mumbled a thank you and stood. Gabriel crossed to the counter and snatched the robe. He handed it to her and ground his teeth as he silently waited for her to secure the oversized garment around her waist.

Without a word, he turned back to her, scooped her up and carried her from the bathroom to the bed. He set her down and quickly backed away, not trusting himself. He was tempted to join her, to reclaim her lips, to bury his cock and fangs deep in her, to show her just how dishonorable he was. He’d told her he was no knight, no savior. And too powerful.  Mortals are off limits.

“You shouldn’t have done that,” he repeated, flashing his fangs.

Jordan straightened her shoulders and met his hard gaze with challenge. “Why?”

“I’m a beast, Jordan. A vampire.”

She swallowed hard, but didn’t glance away. “I know.”

“You shouldn’t test my control.”

“You could’ve stopped me.” Her lips curled with a seductive smile that set fire to his blood. “But we both know you enjoyed it.”

Damn, she was bold.

Book Excerpts

Excerpt 1:

The urge to take control, to deepen the kiss was primal.

Yet he’d held back and somehow found the strength to ease away.

Her eyes were still closed, as if she were savoring his taste. Her lips were slightly parted, their perfect bow shape pouting for more and when she breathlessly whispered, “Erhard,” Gabriel knew a dark moment of near uncontrollable lust.

“Yes,” he said, his voice scratching his dry throat.

Her lashes fluttered open and Jordan released his nape to sweep stray stands of hair from his eyes. She swayed and he caught her to him. The thin material of her teddy pressed tightly over the swell of her breasts. Her pearled nipples strained against the material and abraded him with every shuddered breath she took. He swallowed a groan and pressed her even closer. Fuck, she felt amazing and he was a letch for wanting her.

She’s on Death’s doorstep and you’re copping a feel.

He eased his hold, circled her wrists, and brought her arms down. He dismissed the sense of bereavement that swept through him at the loss of contact. He definitely didn’t acknowledge the disappointment that flickered across her face.

“We’ll land shortly and—”

Jordan reached up and twirled a lock of his hair around her index finger. His words caught in his throat.

“Your eyes…they’re beautiful…so warm.”

Gabriel felt a smile tug at his lips. “You’re the first to say such.”

Her eyelids drooped, but she resisted the lure of sleep. “Impossible.”

“Cold is how my gaze is often described.”

She shook her head and cringed. Her body stiffened all over from the pain.

Humor gone, he insisted, “You need to rest.”

“Tell me honest,” she gasped and grimaced, “How bad am I?”

“We’ll get you patched up.”

She swallowed hard then gave a short laugh. Sadness touched her eyes. “Okay, coach, but I’ll need more than a few Band-Aids. Not sure I can just walk this off.”

Gabriel couldn’t stop his smile.

Jordan’s gaze dropped to his mouth and he sucked in a breath. His lips still tingled from her kiss and, god help him, he wanted to taste her. Claim her luscious mouth, deeply. As if reading his mind, her little tongue swept over her upper lip.

She’s human. Fragile. Don’t forget.

He laid her against the pillows once more, but she continued to fight sleep. “Please, Jordan, rest.” When he stood she raised her hand to catch his, but missed.

“St-stay.”

Her breathless plea struck him like lightning. “I’m not going anywhere.”

Jordan’s eyes drifted closed then fluttered open. “Erhard?”

On impulse, he reached out and squeezed her hand. “Gabriel, you may call me Gabriel.”

Her eyes closed again. As she slipped into sleep she sighed his name and the spark grew into a flame.
