I’m a visual person. I love pictures! Each one has a story to tell. Pictures elicit emotions and reactions. They stir memories or create new ones. Today, I have one I adore with a tiny snippet from my latest book. How you enjoy it. Read on to see a bigger snapshot of the hot scene it’s taken from.
“Now, now, enough of that, kitten. I’m not a saint, you know. If you touch my cock, I’m going to lose control.” He used his other hand to lightly caress the edge of her breast. “And I promised not to fuck you.”
He stopped her words with a single finger pressed to her lips.
“I told you…” He bent closer so his exhaled breath bathed her mate mark. “I told you, I know what my female needs.”
“I thought you said I needed you.”
His low chuckle whipped through her. Desire followed. She shifted to move off the couch. He held her in place with his palm on her upper chest. She stilled.
“Do you trust me, kitten?”
Not once had he demanded such a thing from her. Trust to a shifter was not lightly given, even to a mate. Just because her breeding partner couldn’t kill her, it didn’t mean time spent in his company was pleasant. She’d known too many females who’d suffered at their mates’ hands to know not to blindly give her trust. But…but this was Josh, the man she loved more than anyone in the world.
She nodded, the scope of her acceptance too much to manage more.
A pleased grin spread over his familiar and beloved features. Seeing it satisfied her on a primal level she was sure few humans would understand, Josh included. She’d made her male happy and that…well, that tightened their bond and tugged them closer, spiritually and physically. It was the mystical tether many shifters who’d mated for breeding purposes only refused to admit existed.
She felt it growing between them, but it was the smile on his face and the emotions she saw reflected in his blue eyes that sealed her fate. It was unstoppable, like the sun rising each day. Fears threatened to surface and ruin the moment. She shoved them aside. Tomorrow. She’d deal with them tomorrow and figure out a way to sever what she cultivated today. She’d have an eternity for regrets, but her happiness might only comprise of this one night.
“Good, my kitten. Then let me take care of you.”
She licked her lips. “Okay.”
He tugged on her hand. “Up, babe.”
She swung her legs to the side, moved to stand but he stopped her with his hands on her thighs. He pushed his body between her legs so she was spread wide for him.
The wicked lift to his lip stopped her heart. She held her breath and waited for him to speak.
“You will do everything I tell you. If you think to disobey me, I’ll leave you with only your fingers to ease your hunger.” He pressed a chaste kiss to her lips. “Understand, my female?”
Right in that moment, she realized her mistake. She’d fallen in love with a human, but he was as much a predator as any shifter.
And tonight…tonight, he was going to tame her.
