Teaser Tuesday

Sexy Snippet Tuesday

Caressed by the Edge of Darkness

~ His gaze turned hard, distant for a moment before focusing on her. His hold tightened as if she were his lifeline. “I tried to stay away from you. I thought keeping distance between us was for the best.”

It was. Wasn’t it? Yes, damn it. Distance is good. They were not compatible. She wouldn’t have sex without more and he couldn’t give her more.

“I ignored it. Fought it.”

It? His attraction for her? His need for her? Yeah, she knew, and it had hurt. It had angered and saddened her and…it still did. No, it doesn’t. She didn’t care anymore.

“I told myself you were not for me, that we didn’t suit, that I would be unable to be…gentle with you. My strength and need would be too much. I had to protect you, even from myself. But the truth is…” He released her and took a step back. His wide shoulders rose and fell with a strangled sigh. “The truth is, I’ve been protecting myself from you.”

Oh…my…god! Gabriel was opening up to her. The cold, stonehearted, unconquerable vampire king was lowering his walls. He was letting her in. The realization sent her reeling. Her heart pounding.

“I went to the club to see you. I…had to see you.”

Wasn’t that what Rowena had said? He had come for her. “Then why were you—”

“Those women were to distract me, to help me forget you.” He ran a hand over his jaw. “I was desperate to be free of you.” A deep laugh rumbled his chest. “Then you sang.” His enormous body trembled. “You’ve bewitched me…” He shook his head. “I can’t fight it anymore.”

His hands were on her, his lips a breath from hers, their bodies so close. Jordan gasped, not from fear, not from shock, but from pleasure. God, he felt amazing.

“I won’t.” He gripped her chin and turned her face up. Jordan’s breath left her on a hard gasp. His eyes, green swirled with black. So deep. So clear, she could see not just the demon within but the man. She could see his torn soul, and it called out to her own.

“You—make—me—feel.” His growl was a mixture of unleashed desire long denied and pure aggression.~

 Hardened by centuries of torture, former blood slave, Gabriel Erhard, is driven by an insatiable need to destroy his enemies. Violence darkens his battered soul, leaving no place for mercy in his world. Gabriel’s only desire is vengeance—until he finds her.
Seized by vampires, bound as a slave, and placed on the auction block, Jordan Culver is instantly entranced by the dangerous male who claims her. Jordan’s new captor vows to set her free, but his haunted gaze burns with savage desire and his wicked kiss makes her crave his touch and...complete surrender.

While Gabriel battles his enemies, he will break every sacred law to achieve his ultimate goal—uniting the Outcast Society and creating a new vampire Clan. But the distracting human with mesmerizing violet eyes jeopardizes his plans. With every soft whisper she evokes his tormented memories, tests his sanity and challenges his every boundary. Can Jordan help him overcome the miseries of his past and find a future with her? Or will he lose what remains of his soul and become a true beast?
