Sexy Snippets is a weekly feature hosted by Reading Between the Wines for the 18+ crowd.
Tuesdays just got sexier.
This snippet is from my upcoming paranormal romance release, Caressed by Shadows (Rulers of Darkness #4). Release date to be announced.
Sonya, the heroine, is weakened from starvation and injuries. She must feed in order to heal, but she hasn't taken blood directly from a human in so long. The hero, Falcon, offers to help her...
Star shivered as Sonya's fingers stroked up her arms to her shoulders. Titling her head to the side, the woman's eyes drifted closed. Her pulse rocketed, the rhythm intense.
Sonya captured and held Falcon's gaze. She slowly ran her tongue over the tips of her fangs. His fingers gripped the arms of the chair, his knuckles turning white. God, he would give anything to exchange places with the mortal woman. He longed to feel Sonya's mouth at his throat, her fangs scoring his flesh as she drank deeply of him.
A low growl rumbled his chest when Sonya pressed her lips against Star's throat. Sonya's liquid gold gaze remained on him, burning him, taunting him, beckoning to him. He shuddered as Sonya flicked her tiny pink tongue over the mortal's pulse. Star's moan was drowned by Falcon's envious groan. Sonya flashed him a wicked smile then whispered his name, her breath brushing over the woman's sensitive skin.
Falcon's breath hitched. His heart froze mid beat. Sonya sank her fangs into the slender column of Star's throat. The woman cried out in pleasure, tossing her head back, surrendering to the ecstasy of the bite.
