KADE Excerpt


-->
Sydney knew she wasn’t Luca’s favorite person, but he was polite, she’d give him that. She stood, glancing from Kade to Luca and took Luca’s hand. Luca pulled Sydney onto the dance floor. As she went, Sydney’s eyes never left Kade’s. She stopped counting how many times a day she wanted Kade to make love to her. She never felt so connected to one man in her life, but she couldn’t admit to herself that this might be a real opportunity for a long, lasting relationship.

Luca easily pulled Sydney against him. He pushed his thigh between her knees. Sydney felt the strength of Luca against her and admired his lean, fit body. He was muscular, lethal. She let herself fall against him and put one arm around his neck. Luca brought her even closer. Sydney was surprised to feel Luca’s hardness against her belly. “So, Luca, is that a stake in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?” she joked.

Luca grabbed the back of her head pulling it toward his and whispered in her ear, “Sydney darling, let’s just say that you are starting to grow on me, and that outfit of yours is delectable. I may be a vampire, but I’m not dead. Even though you belong to Kade, it doesn’t stop me from appreciating you…all of you.” He kissed her cheek and continued dancing.

Horny vampires, geez. She oddly felt as though she could trust Luca, even if he was so touchy feely with her. Sydney was attracted to him as well, as most women would be. He was very handsome, but not a pretty boy. Sydney was surprised at his sudden sexuality on display for all to see in the club. She also felt nervous wondering what Kade’s reaction would be to having another man’s hands all over her. She kept trying to remember that she was there playing a part…Look like you are close to Luca.

As Luca danced with Sydney, he was reminded that he had not been with a woman in a long time. She was Kade’s woman, but that didn’t mean he did not appreciate the opportunity to touch her body. Just as she was beginning to relax, Luca spun her around into Kade’s arms. But instead of moving away, Luca rubbed against Sydney’s ass reaching his hands around her waist. His hands slowly inched up under Sydney’s breasts as Kade kissed her passionately.

Sydney’s senses were overwhelmed. What the fuck was going on? She was letting two vampires monopolize her body, sandwiched in between them, loving every minute of it. Kissing Kade took her away into a headspace that she rarely went, pure pleasure. Yet, it scared her that she was letting him see her raw, so exposed. And worst of all, she felt the tingle all over her body. Wishing the situation with him could be permanent, she was falling for him.

Kade grasped the nape of her neck and leaned in to speak sensually in her ear, “Sydney love, you are stunning tonight. Indeed, I am going to find it hard to let you go after this dance.” He kissed the lobe of her ear. “You seem to like playing with two men. Enjoying our dance with Luca aren’t you, love? But remember this Sydney, I don’t share, and at the end of tonight, you will be mine.” Mine? He could not believe he used the word but at the same time, he could not deny the all-consuming need to claim Sydney as his. He had every intention of making love to her over and over again, and was looking forward to hearing her scream his name in ecstasy.

As the song ended, Sydney was relieved to put some space between her and the boys. She felt her sensitive sex ache below, feeling extraordinarily aroused. She longed for Kade’s strong arms and wished he’d take her out of the club. He told her that she would be his tonight. She found herself wanting to let him take control and make love to her until dawn. She was conflicted knowing that she was an independent woman, yet she could not deny wanting to belong to him.


LUCA Excerpt
“Yes,” was the only word he heard in response to his proposal; Luca lost control. Passionately and provocatively, he took her with a hungry urgency. It wasn’t sweet. His mouth claimed hers, savagely taking what was his. The intoxicating nectar of Samantha only made him kiss her more deeply. He wanted her in a way that he’d never wanted any woman. Determined to possess every part of her body and mind in the moment, he would claim her tonight. She’d be his forever.
Luca tore his lips from hers. “Bedroom. Now,” he commanded. Leading her by her small soft hand, he stopped her before they got to his bed.
“I will have you tonight, Samantha. After tonight, you’ll never forget that you are mine. And I will be yours.”
Samantha silently nodded in response. She was ready to commit to this man, this vampire. Luca was everything she’d ever wanted in a male: strong, loving, trustworthy, and passionate. She knew in her heart that giving herself over to him was all she desired now and for her future.
Luca unraveled the belt on her robe, slid his fingers underneath the soft fabric and slowly pushed it off Samantha, letting his hands glide from the smooth skin of her shoulders to her hands. As the robe pooled at her feet, he gently took her hands in his. She stood bare before his eyes. “You’re enticing, Samantha. I cannot seem to get enough of you. So the question is, do you want to play with me tonight? Be honest with me, darlin’, because I plan to take you to places we’ve never been before.”
Samantha felt womanly, exposed to Luca. She trusted him completely as he released her hands and placed his on her waist. “Luca, please, hurry. I can’t seem to keep my hands off of you.”
“Well, I guess we’ll have to do something about that,” he smiled knowingly. “Turn around, face the wall. Don’t move unless I tell you. It’s time for some fun.”
Without question, she complied and waved her bottom at him, shooting him a sultry look that said, ‘come and get me’.
Luca loved how responsive she was under his direction. He didn’t ever bring women into his home, and certainly engaging in a little light bdsm was something he rarely did anymore. Yet he’d wanted to do this to her since the minute she’d danced with him in the club. Luca slid his hands slowly up the sides of her waist, under her arms, pushing them upward and placing the palms of her hands against the wall. With the same precision, he glided his hands back down her arms, waist, until finally, he reached her bottom.
“Samantha, you are everything I’ve ever wanted in a woman; beautiful, smart.” She let out a small moan; he rubbed his hard aching bulge against her. He wanted to fuck her right now, but he wouldn’t dare. No, he planned to make her beg for mercy as he slowly brought her to orgasm over and over.
Though he was still fully clothed, she could feel his magnificent erection against her bum. She wanted him in her now; she grew wet from the intense ache between her legs. “Please, Luca.”
His hands slid from her ass around to lie just beneath her sensitive bosom. She moved slightly to urge him to cup her breasts. He smiled, smelling the overwhelming scent of her desire, but he wanted to draw out the anticipation, tease her with delight. “No, no, no, darlin’. Not tonight. You don’t get to decide when or how the pleasure happens. You wanted to play, so play we shall,” he whispered into her ear. Goosebumps ran over her skin in response to his hot breath. “Tonight is about wanting what you can’t have until I give it to you. It’s about me savoring every stroke of your flesh. The ultimate pleasure, tasting you while you come, screaming my name. Now, do you want me to touch your lovely breasts? Tell me, Samantha.”

TRISTAN Excerpt
 
-->
Stunned by her beauty, he could barely breathe.  Goddess, the woman was spectacular.  The fiery red gown clung to her in all the right places, and he noticed a small smile grow on her angelic face, presumably pleased that she had castigated Alexandra.  He needed to get to her, hold her.  As he rushed across the room, Mira stopped him with a hand to his arm.  She gestured toward an elusive client standing to her left.

Logan laughed, seeing Kalli triumph over the demon spawn who ran the vampires.  “Hey girl, I hate to point it out, but man you laid her out…and that growl.  What was that?”

“Dance with me, Logan,” Kalli declared, needing to move.

“Your wish is my command.”

They crossed the floor, and Logan swept her into his arms.  As amazing as Logan looked, she yearned for Tristan.  She could feel he was close.  As the music grew louder in her ears, she swayed along to the classical beats, hyper-aware of his presence.  Leaning her head on Logan’s shoulder, she finally spied Tristan near the buffet, surrounded by Mira and a short bald man.

His eyes caught hers, and her heart started to race.  She wasn’t sure whether it was his pensive expression or aggressive stance, but she could clearly sense he was agitated.  Logan spun her, and she lost his eyes only momentarily, then caught them once again.  His predatory gaze electrified the room, sending goose bumps over her skin.  As he stalked toward them, her breathing hitched.  Like a rabbit alert to the wolf, she froze save for the mindless dance steps she made while blindly following Logan.  As Tristan came upon them, she forced herself to face him directly.  Larger than life, Tristan was sophistication etched in dripping sexuality.  His dominance was apparent to every man, woman and supernatural in the room; there’d be no denying him.

Even Logan stopped dancing to respect his Alpha.  Lowering his eyes in submission, he bowed slightly.  “Thank you for the dance,” he whispered, releasing her.

Before she had a chance to say a word, Tristan wrapped a hand around her waist, pulling her tightly to him so they pressed together.  She could feel his barely restrained erection nudging her belly.  Suppressing a moan, she felt herself grow wet.  She clenched her thighs hoping to hide her arousal; every supernatural within fifty feet would know of her excitement.

“Don’t,” Tristan ordered.

“Don’t what?” she managed to ask.

“Don’t try to hide it.  Your delicious scent.”

“But they’ll know I …” Kalli’s words trailed off as she lost her train of thought.  God, he felt incredible.

“I want them to know.  I want them all to know you’re mine.”

“But I thought…I mean you came with her.” Her eyes darted to Mira.

“Business only, nothing more.  Still, I’m very sorry I didn’t bring you with me.  Clearly I was an idiot to leave you alone with my beta.  Every man in this room is looking at you, Kalli.”

“No,” she denied, shaking her head.

“Yes.  And they should.  Because you’re magnificent.  Everything about you from that alluring dress I bought you to your sexy growl.  My Goddess, do you know what you do to me?  Feel it,” he whispered, grinding his groin against her.

“Tristan,” she breathed.  She was on the verge of orgasm from just dancing with the man.  She couldn’t imagine what would happen if they made love.

“Did you enjoy dancing with Logan?

“What?  Logan?”

“Yes, Logan.  Did you enjoy having your sweet body pressed to his?”

“Oh God, Tristan.”

“It’s all right, Kalli.  Did you find it arousing? Tell me the truth.”

“Another test?” she sighed.

“Truth?”

“Okay yes, but he’s not…he’s not you.  No one I’ve ever met in my life is like you,” she admitted.

“Ah, see how easy it is to tell the truth, ma chérie?  Perhaps you’d like to explore two men at once?” he teased with a sexy smile as if he’d thoroughly enjoy it.

She blushed, not denying it.

“Someday we’ll explore that little kink of yours, but tonight you are mine.  In fact, I think you’ll be mine for quite a long time.”

“Confident, huh, wolf?”

“Would you ever expect anything less?”

He spun her around, continuing to brush against her.  Tightening the grip around her waist, he ran his palm up her arm to her neck, until he reached her face.  Caressing her cheek, he ran his thumb across her lower lip.  “I want you so much, Kalli.  I’m so sorry for everything.  I shouldn’t have sent you to Logan’s.  I was angry, but damn, I need you.”

She groaned and threw her head back, publicly baring her neck to him.  Submission, truth, she’d give it to him all right.  But what he needed to learn was that he was hers as well, and after tonight she had no intention of letting him go.

LOGAN Excerpt:
 
-->
Wynter barely saw him coming.  Logan leapt across the room, and as his body touched hers, she gasped.  His hands pressed hard against the glass on either side of her head.  The masculine scent of him wafted into her nose and she fought the instinct to rub her face against his chest.  Oh God, what had she done?  How could she be so stupid as to challenge an Alpha?  She really must be sick.  Unable to speak, she held still.  Initially charged with fear, she realized very quickly that he wasn’t hurting her.  The tension between them escalated with every minute of silence that passed.  And then she felt him, his nose grazing along the side of her neck.  A small moan escaped her lips.

At the challenge, Logan strode across the room, pinning her against the wall.  He had to smell her, taste her.  Why would she deny her wolf?  Why play games?  Logan didn’t want to hurt her.  Oh no.  If anything, he’d like to give her pleasure like she’d never known.  But she kept insisting she was human.  If she wanted to play, play he would.  She was wolf, and he’d prove it to her.  But as her sweet scent engulfed his senses, he began to lose control.  His wolf clawed at his psyche, begging to take the woman.  Like freshly cut roses, the heavenly aroma was familiar yet altogether unique and desirable, although her wolf lingered on the edge; she was there, he could scent her.

In an effort to prevent himself from ravishing her right there in his office, Logan plastered his hands so hard against the window, he thought it’d crack.  At the sound of her moan, he darted his tongue out against her silky skin.  He had to taste her.  Just once.  Ah fuck, no; his wolf wanted more.  Eyes feral, he locked them with hers, taking her arm.  He placed a small kiss to her palm before dragging his tongue along her wrist all the way to the crook of her elbow, releasing a growl of satisfaction.

Wynter’s heart pounded as he gently took her arm into his hands.  She shivered as he pushed up her sleeve and brought her delicate wrist to his lips.  Wet with arousal, she couldn’t break their connection as she stared deep into his mesmerizing eyes.  Oh my God.  Wolf.  Human.  I’ll be whatever you want me to be…just please, just take me.  Wynter thought her knees would give out, except he had her pressed up against the window.  Lost in his spell, she responded by nudging her own hips against his hard arousal as he tasted her skin.

Logan groaned as the territorial need to take her consumed him.  He needed to get things under control.  Jax.  Fucking, goddamned Jax.  His name alone should have killed his raging hard on, but it wasn’t helping one damn bit.  No, he needed to separate himself from her before he tore her clothes off.  He closed his eyes and blew out a breath, but didn’t release her.

“Wolf,” he breathed into her hair.
