Tempted by Blood by Laurie London
Deep within the forests of the Pacific Northwest, the battle for supremacy rages on between two Vampire coalitions:Guardian enforcers sworn to protect humanity, and Darkbloods, rogues who kill like their ancient ancestors….
He might be known for his effortless charm, but Guardian Jackson Foss is hiding a terrible secret. For months, he has battled the emergence of his dark nature—deadly urges that threaten to consume him. And those cravings only intensify when he meets Arianna Wells, the human he's been assigned to protect. Smart and perceptive, Arianna doesn't seem like a dangerous temptress. Yet she awakens in Jackson an unstoppable need that, if left unchecked, will brand him a traitor…a crime punishable by death.
But soon their bond may be Arianna's only hope. For stalking her in the shadows is a merciless enemy—one who will stop at nothing to claim her completely….

Seduced by Shadows by Jessa Slade
When Sera Littlejohn meets a violet-eyed stranger, he reveals a supernatural battle veiled in the shadows, and Sera is tempted to the edge of madness by a dangerous desire. Ferris Archer takes Sera under his wing, now that she is a talyan—possessed by a repentant demon with hellish powers. Archer’s league of warriors have never fought beside a female before, and never in all his centuries has Archer found a woman who captivates him like Sera.
With the balance shifting between good and evil, passion and possession, Sera and Archer must defy the darkness and dare to embrace a love that will mark them forever.

Ready for a little steam? 

Caressed by Moonlight (Rulers of Darkness #1)

    Her heart was beginning to pound and the rhythmic beats vibrated through Dorian's body. Her blood was heating, but he wanted it to boil. He dropped his lips to the tender flesh of her throat and gently sucked on her pulse, a gasp of pure delight escaping her throat. His hands slipped into the robe, stroking her sides as he slowly parted the silk folds. The robe slipped from her shoulders and cascaded to the floor unnoticed.
            Dorian took her lips again, his hands roaming over her back in sensuous circles, pressing her bare breasts hard against his nude chest. The warmth of her body seeped into him, comforting him. He wanted her with a need, a passion, that he never knew was possible.  Her skin was so delicate and it drove him to the brink of insanity. He was consumed with desire, he wanted to drive into her fast and hard, but he knew he couldn't. He had to go slow, he had to be patient. Feeling like a plundering barbarian, he wrenched his lips away from hers, leaving Victoria dazed and gasping for air. He closed his eyes and tried to calm the raging storm in his body.
“Is something wrong?”
            He shook his head and kissed her forehead. Then took her up in his arms and set her gently upon the bed. He did not look at her; he feared he would lose what little hold he had on his control.
“These trousers need to come off,” he said as he began to attack the buttons, needing the distraction.
            Victoria's eyes devoured him, slowly moving across his solid chest, down over his tight stomach, and came to rest at the bulge between his thighs. She licked her lips in anticipation as he freed the last button, and then gasped. His rich laugh brought her eyes up to his.
“Never seen one before?” he said, his large shoulders shaking with mirth.
“No. I don't go around peeking at men.”
“Good thing too. If you did, I doubt you would have remained a virgin for long.”
She blushed and dropped her gaze to his chest as he continued to remove his clothing. He came down on the bed and pressed her back against the pillows then took one leg in his hand and rested it upon his shoulder. He traced her ankle with his tongue and trailed a line of fire to her knee. He nipped and kissed until her body hummed with red-hot passion once more.
He allowed her leg to drop as he slowly moved up her body like a wild, prowling, jungle cat. He blanketed her frame with his as he smoothed her hair away from her face. He traced the curve of her bottom lip with his warm tongue, placed light kisses to each corner of her mouth before Victoria wrapped her arms about his neck and snatched his lips. She could not stand to be teased any longer. She wanted to be pleased.
Dorian growled low, accepting her demand, his hands moving to cup her breasts. He brushed each nipple with the pad of his thumbs and they grew into hard buds as she shivered in pleasure. Victoria rubbed her legs enticingly against his. He groaned and buried his face in the curve of her neck as she wiggled her hips. He kissed and licked his way down her throat and nipped playfully at her collarbone.
Victoria's breath caught in her throat as his perfect mouth hovered a scant inch above her nipple. She writhed beneath him, his warm breath was tormenting as it whispered over her breasts. She closed her eyes in anticipation, waiting and longing for the feel of his scorching tongue. A loud cry echoed in the large chamber as his mouth fastened on the bud. Her back arched as her fingers gripped his hair. He made agonizingly slow love to each of her breasts, suckling, kissing, laving, and nipping. She moaned and sighed in delight and he smiled with satisfaction. He was in control, but he knew she could make him lose it and that was the most powerful aphrodisiac.
His hand slipped between her silken thighs and quickly found the heat he so desired. He pulled away from his luscious feast to catch her lips. Victoria met his mouth hungrily and squealed with pleasure as he sank a long finger into her depths. He stroked her pulsing flesh as he toyed with her womanly nub. She tugged at his shoulders wanting more, needing more, and he obliged, slipping another finger inside her hot sheath.
Eyes shut. Victoria was lost in the sea of exquisite sensation. A delicious storm swept through her body and pushed her toward the cliff of pure ecstasy. Her muscles were taut. She had reached the edge.
Dorian pulled away and chuckled at her whimper of protest. He ignored her pleas, ignored the demands of her body, and began to torment her once again with his succulent mouth. He licked a hot trail down her neck, across her shoulders, and between the valley of her breasts. Dorian nipped and kissed each rib sending chills down her spine and to her toes. He seared her navel with his tongue and grinned against her stomach as she moaned wildly. His mouth continued down to the apex of her thighs. He paused to look up at her before leaning forward to press a possessive kiss atop her curls.
She murmured in protest then hissed in pleasure. Her head fell back as his tongue tasted her in hot, languid swirls, growing all the more ravenous with each thrust. She was rich, viscous, sweet honey and he knew he could never get enough. He wrapped his solid arms about her waist bringing her closer to him. He groaned as her hands grew into fisted in his hair. Victoria moved her hips to his fierce rhythm. She was wild in her abandon and he loved it.
Her back arched as the coiling heat within her grew and tightened. Her breath came in gasps as Dorian ravished her. She rubbed her legs against his sides as she gripped his hair. Just when Victoria felt she could not take anymore of his sweet torture, the world burst into a bright blaze and she cried out his name as magnificent ecstasy washed over her.
            His strong hands cupped her breasts as he continued to take her with his mouth. His thumbs brushed her nipples while his tongue brushed her pleasure nub.
“Oh, no more,” she begged between gasps. “I can't take any more.”
“You can and you will,” Dorian growled.
            His assault grew more feverish as he slipped a finger between her slick folds. She whimpered, her hands falling from his hair to his shoulders. Her nails bit into his skin as another shattering climax gripped her. He smiled to himself and slowly retraced his way back up to her mouth. No part of her was left unexplored.
            Victoria greedily took his lips and suckled his tongue as she locked her arms about his neck. She cradled his hips with her hips and tunneled her fingers through his dark, rich, thick hair. He deepened the kiss as he pressed the broad head of his shaft against her hot core. With blind hunger, she rubbed herself against him. He could not hold back any longer. With one swift thrust, he was buried to the hilt. Victoria broke the kiss and giving a small cry of pain and he froze.
            Had he been too rough? Had he hurt her? He knew there was pain for a virgin and he feared he had made it worse.
“I'm sorry,” he whispered, pressing kisses to her temple, “I'm sorry.”
“Dorian,” her voice was shaking as she took his face in her hands. He was shocked and thrilled when she placed a soft kiss to his lips.
            Dorian remained still, allowing her to adjust to his size. Then slowly, carefully, he began to move within her. Desperately wanting to make up for the pain he had caused her, he loved her neck and throat, kissing, licking, as he began a steady, vigorous rhythm. He was aware of her every heart beat, every breath, every touch, every gasp of pleasure. He clenched his teeth as he thrust and thrust and thrust, fighting against himself. His eyes focused on the all too vulnerable pulse of her throat.
His fangs grew long with desire, as his manhood swelled even larger with need. He ran his tongue over the delicious proof of life and grazed it with his teeth. He was about to surrender to the beast within when she sighed his name. It was the lightest of sounds but it touched his black heart. His eyes moved to her face. He watched the hot flush of passion and arousal wash over her skin. He savored her gasps and as he penetrated and withdrew and took note of the frantic arching of her back and hips. She was the most beautiful creature he had ever seen.
            His body claimed hers with deep, sure, possessive strokes. She writhed beneath him, her thighs gripping his hips, her nails digging into his flesh. The moon exploded into stars of vibrant colors as she cried out his name.
            The feel of her climax, her warm, tight sheath clenching around him, fueled his need. He drove into her again and again, intent on sating an insatiable hunger. Faster and harder he plunged to her depths sending her spiraling through time and space, her moans and gasps filling the room as she was wrapped in a blanket of mind numbing pleasure.       
            Dorian drove into her one last time, buried himself deep in her core, and melted in delirious bliss, flooding her, filling her, experiencing a primordial ecstasy. He kissed her with an urgency that he had never known and hugged her close. Not wanting to leave her, he ended the kiss and propped himself up on one elbow and gazed down at her. Her eyes were closed and her lips swollen from his intense kisses.

Caressed by Night (Rulers of Darkness #2) 

His rough voice and his soft words sent delicious vibrations throughout her body and collected at her core. Her blood felt like thick lava coursing through her veins.
            “I need you,” Kerstyn breathed.
            Diamond eyes stared deeply into her sapphire gaze. Kerstyn’s delicate, pink tongue ran over the pad of his thumb before her lips closed on a kiss. The caress was gentle and light, but strong enough to break the spell that bound them.
            Dimitri dragged her across his lap. His erection pressing against her hip as his hands lovingly cupped her face. Their mouths met, hot and searing, their lips parted and the kiss deepened.
            Without breaking the kiss, Dimitri repositioned Kerstyn so that she now straddled him. He groaned as she began to move her hips against his, teasing him.
Kerstyn pulled away, trailing kisses over his jaw and down the side of his neck, licking and suckling. She nipped at his pulse and at that moment, Dimitri wished she had fangs. His erection swelled as he thought of her piercing his flesh as she took him deep within her body. The fantasy fueled his lustful hunger. He needed to be inside her heat, he needed to feel the silky smoothness of her as he thrust.
            Dimitri stood and turned, dropping Kerstyn on the bed. She landed on her back, her legs flopping to one side as she watched him pull his shirt over his head. His muscles flexed beneath her hot gaze as he slipped off his shoes and unzipped his jeans.
            “Now me,” she said as Dimitri came to loom over her.
            Though he was gentle with her body, he was not nice to her clothes. He tore her shirt, revealing her swollen breasts. His fingers made quick work of her bra before he undid her pants and pulled them down her legs. The sound of ripping denim went unnoticed as he lowered his chiseled body over hers.
            Before he could lay claim to her mouth, Kerstyn took up what she had been doing before Dimitri had decided to change positions and get naked, not that she minded at all. Her lips moved back to his throat, she flicked her tongue over his pulse, and he cursed as his entire body quaked. She smiled against his neck and did it again.
            “Bite,” he rasped, “bite me.”
            She hesitated for a moment before giving in to his request and her playful wickedness.
            Dimitri hissed, his body arching. He cradled her head, pressing her mouth hard against him. His shaft nudged against her inner thighs and brushed against her wetness.
            “Again,” he growled.
            Kerstyn bit him again and when his hips thrust forward, the head of him pressed against her and he slid in, nice and slow. His roar of pleasure drowned her small cry as their bodies came together. He was buried to the hilt, surrounded by her searing heat.
            Kerstyn’s nails scored his back as he began to pump within her. His muscles contracted and released beneath her hands as he found a rhythm, thrusting in and pulling back, thrusting in and pulling back. She circled her legs about his hips, opening herself even more to him, allowing him to stroke deeper.
            Dimitri’s fangs slipped from their sheaths and his lips pulled back. His eyes flashed between calm blue to raging white. His hands fisted on each side of her head as he pushed himself up, supporting his weight on his arms, his hips plunging.
            His features were contorted with pleasure, his lips peeled back over his teeth, his neck arched back, and his brow furrowed. Everything from his lust-clouded mind to his unquenchable hunger for her blood and her body, to his rapidly beating heart was focused on his woman.
            Kerstyn could feel his gaze locked on her pulse. Tilting her head to the side, she gave him a better view. Dimitri cursed and closed his eyes.
            “It’s…okay,” she said between gasps.
            “Too much,” he gritted out, “I took too much before.”
            Kerstyn reached up, tangling her fingers in the blond strands at the nape of his neck. Tugging, she brought him down, his body crashing upon hers, knocking the air from her lungs.
            “I want you to do it.”
Answering with a snarl, the demon took control. As Kerstyn’s orgasm rocked her body, Dimitri’s fangs sliced her throat. His mouth pulled at her tender flesh as his own pleasure claimed him. Kerstyn cried out his name as she felt him jerk within her, releasing waves of heat.
            Control, he cautioned himself. But damn! She is delicious.
He continued to pump through his orgasm, his hips thrusting and withdrawing as his mouth greedily worked at her throat. Another orgasm shattered her world as he kept going and going. Pulling away, he closed her wound and raised himself up again, his eyes still flashing between shades of color. Now his gaze was intently focused on her face and Kerstyn moaned as she felt her muscles tighten, her toes curl, and another quake of pleasure racked her body as he came with her. His massive frame shuddering as he released deep within her.
Her legs fell from his hips, her body drained of energy and completely sated.
“God, I would never have thought having my blood sucked while having sex would be so…explosive,” she sighed as he pulled away from her.
Dimitri’s smile was warm and…mischievous. Kerstyn shivered as he kissed his way over her breasts, suckling each nipple in turn before going further down her body. Lacing an arm under her lower back, he pushed her up the bed, her head resting on the pillows. He stretched her out beneath him as he slid down to her parted thighs.
Kerstyn’s breath caught in her throat as he dipped his head down. She screamed his name as his tongue came down on her sex. Gripping the pillow, she ripped it with her nails as he teased her, bringing her closer and closer to yet another release. His mouth suckled as his tongue played and his name echoed through the suite as she came hard, her body arching off the bed.
Dimitri pressed his palm against her flat stomach, pressing her back down on the bed, holding her in place as he continued to torture her with his mouth. He waited for another orgasm to grip her before moving his mouth to the inside of her thigh.
Kerstyn watch him as he drew circles over her soft flesh. When he turned his gaze up, she was shocked to find his eyes solid, glowing white. To her pleasure and her horror, his fangs grew even longer. His beautiful lips circled in a smile as he lowered his mouth to her thigh. His strike was quick, smooth, and clean. Kerstyn’s body convulsed as ecstasy consumed her, sweeping her away to a realm where only she and Dimitri existed.
Dimitri’s own roar of pleasure shook the building as her smooth, spicy blood filled his mouth. With every orgasm, her blood grew more intoxicating. The perfume of her arousal mixed with his own, filled his lungs as he drank deeply. His shaft swelled and pulsed, longing to be inside her, but he could not pull himself away. He felt her pulse begin to grow weak, making her taste even sweeter. It grew slower and slower beneath his mouth, the demon loving every second, but the man in him quickly seized control.
Pulling away, he closed the pinpricks he had made and climbed up her body. Her breathing was labored as she floated back down to earth to join him.
“My mate,” Dimitri whispered in her ear as his shaft slid into place, stretching her. “My angel, will you come for me again?”
