Excerpt: WARNING EROTIC LANGUAGE!
Theana knew the minute they walked in the door. Their scent reached her first, and she was both disgusted and intrigued at the instant reaction of her body. Just their tantalizing scent, Rafael like a cool wind filled with power and deep earth, Gregori like the morning sun and packed snow, made her weak. She'd been having a good time with Tim, really getting to know him and the clan. Seeing the closet full of clothes her mates had prepared for her and feeling like they truly intended to care for her. And she'd known, intellectually, that they would return, that Council meetings never lasted long. She'd always figured all that testosterone and maleness in one room turned them bullheaded after too long and they had to separate. Even knowing that, she wasn't prepared for their appearance. They walked in, looking larger than life. She watched as the wolves, including Tim, surrounded the alpha and beta, getting close, and touching them in random places. The urge to touch, to be accepted, was a wolf trait that none of them had tried to stop.
Gregori and Rafael were careful to touch every wolf in some way and say a word of welcome, before they pushed through the group and stalked to Theana's side. She trembled and cursed at the reaction. But as her pussy moistened and she looked at them she knew she was lost. She saw it in their eyes. The need to mark her, the need to mate with her, together. She could read it. Rafael looked eager, full of desire, and on edge. Gregori looked as if he was about to revisit paradise and couldn't wait for another taste. She stood up hastily, and they moved with her. The room grew deathly quiet around her.
"Don't speak. Walk," Rafael growled, and she thought she would feel rage blazing through her, disbelief that he would command her to do anything. Instead she only felt desire. It started as a slow ache that spiraled from her breasts, hardening her nipples and twisting its way through her body, overshadowing even what she had felt just at their scent. The molten heat spread until her stomach was trembling, her limbs growing loose, and her clit pulsed with each heartbeat. She didn't even realize she'd been moving, as he ordered, backwards, unerringly towards his room, until she hit the wall behind her. She gasped, lifting a shaking hand to her mouth.
"Continue," Gregori ordered, and she moved, her feet turning her, it seemed, on their own as she started towards their room. She smelled Gregori as he moved closer to her and then past her. In a haze she followed his back, watching the muscles contract and flex. His ass was delectable, shifting with each step. He was a beautiful man, built on such strong lines. She salivated, her fangs extending in her mouth as anticipation grew. She couldn't fight this if she wanted to. Her wolf propelled her forward, tantalized by the men she knew were strong enough to have her, to control her. Rafael was behind her, and his scent wrapped around her until she was nearly stumbling her way to their room. How had this happened? Not that long ago she was fighting her attraction to them. She didn't want to be anyone's mate. Then she was flying through the air and wanted to attack Rafael for having a woman's scent on him.
It was the clan, she thought then. Somehow, since coming here for pack cohesion she had seen a different side of her mates. The wolves in her pack were well cared for, close, and loving. Luna had grabbed her heart as surely as if she'd plucked it from her chest and given it to the girl. She could see their closeness, their bond...and she wanted to be a part of it. Wanted to know what it was like, once again, to be a part of a pack, to feel their connection, their closeness to her. Wanted to run with them beneath the moon and howl her release. She wanted to revel in being a wolf, as she denied for so long since leaving Seurri, and Camden, behind. Now, though, things were different. She was back, for the very thing she'd run from, but couldn't break away. In her mind she knew that she would fight this in the morning. It was ingrained in her to run. She just wasn’t ready to take on a relationship that soared beyond mere sex. Yet she was in the midst of mating. Being marked was something she hadn’t bargained on. She would be angry that she had given in, but for now, these next few moments, she would be their mate to share. She could give in to a secret desire she hadn't really ever thought she had: to be mated and know it was what she was meant to be.
I want to be what I never thought I could be, she thought then, and her steps became sure. No longer was she only led by lust, but by emotions that she wasn't quite ready to examine, but wanting to follow nonetheless. She followed them past the kitchen, as they took the stairs off to the right and towards their room. She remained silent as they stepped into the room. Gregori kept going until he stood in front of the bed and then turned. Rafael closed the door before he stepped around her and backed her against it, going to his knees.
Theana felt like her body was on fire, and she was burning from the flames. Her jeans, that she felt were so comfortable before, were now too tight on her flesh. Her wraparound shirt was an impediment to their touch. She had never dreamed that his touch would feel like this. What had been missing with all her encounters with her other partners was here. The need, the want, the knowledge that this was right. Rafael knelt before her, shirt and suit jacket tossed away as if it weren't a thousand dollar ensemble, his hands gripping her hips and pulling her closer to his face.
"You wore what we bought you. Mine," he rasped, his already deep voice thicker, heavier as he forced the words out. His wolf was so near the surface she could see the gold of his eyes. Beautiful, absolutely breathtaking. A wolf. Her wolf.
"I have never tasted you, but I will today, right now, this moment." He lifted his hand slowly, never breaking eye contact with her, as claws elongated from his nails. Gregori sat down on the bed, and she heard the movement, hyper aware. She heard cloth shifting as he removed his clothes. She looked away from Rafael momentarily and saw that Gregori was watching them as he stripped. It was the first time she had seen his flesh. His chest was a mass of muscles, rippling down to his tapered waist. She licked her lips, moistening them. He smiled slightly as he lifted his hips a little off the bed and pushed his slacks and underwear off. His cock, thick and long, pointed towards her, and she moaned, her eyelids growing heavy. Gregori gripped his cock, pumping with long, sure strokes, his gaze finally leaving hers as he trailed it down her body to where Rafael knelt before her. She looked down as well.
"I think we have your attention now," he whispered and ripped her clothes away. They fell around her in scraps, sliding to the floor. She gasped, her body tightening. Rafael leaned forward and inhaled deeply, his nostrils flaring.
"Delicious," he said, and then licked her up the seam of her legs and up over her mound. Her legs opened of their own volition. He gripped her hips, and it steadied her.
"Good girl," he crooned and bent his head once more. He sucked her clit into his mouth and nipped her lightly before licking the sting away.
"Yes, Rafael," she moaned, pushing her pussy harder against his mouth. He ate at her juices like a man starved for water in the desert. His golden eyes never left her face, low growls rushing over her clit. She leaned back against the wall to brace herself for his onslaught.
Ohhhh HOT! HOT! HOT!
Want to know more? Here's the blurb...
Theana ran from Seurri City, home of the wolf shifters now public to humans, to escape a mating with her childhood friend. She wasn't in the mood for a mate, or the trappings of politics. Then she meets Rafael, alpha of the strongest pack in Seurri, and his beta, Gregori. Suddenly she can't catch her breath, or keep control of her emotions.
Rafael and Gregori refuse to let Theana get in her own way, and the love they could share. Perhaps two men for their feisty mate are definitely better than one. Now to stall the would-be childhood suitor, and stop all out war between the packs—but love is worth fighting for.
Definitely one to watch out for. It releases FRIDAY folks!
