And now for today's Sunday Smooch from Nocturne Bite One Night with the Wolf by Anna Hackett...
Werewolf Jade Thorne needs a man—a young, virile man to give her love and pleasure. As a rare female alpha, she must keep her pack safe by pledging herself in marriage to an aging leader from a rival pack. Until then, she wants to experience the raging passion of a wolf in his prime. She even has an ideal lover at hand: her Second, Christian Tallant.
But Christian is a wolf who will demand to dominate her body, mind and soul. Now Jade must decide if she can afford to submit to his desire—and if one night with the wolf will really be enough....
He growled in her ear. “Tell me what you want.”
Jade stared blindly at the moon partly hidden by the treetops. Her lips parted. What did she want? She wasn’t sure anymore. Not with this man’s hands on her.
His fingers toyed with the next button but didn’t open it. “Say it.”
“Pleasure,” she choked out.
He undid another button. The night air was cool on her skin.
“Desire.” She rubbed against him. “Heat.”
“What do you really want?”
A sob caught in her throat. “You.”
With a muttered curse, his hand slashed down and ripped the remaining buttons from her shirt. He spun her, yanking her hard against his chest.
Rough hands tangled in her hair, angling her face up to his.
Her gaze clashed with liquid golden eyes.
Christian called himself all kinds of names and fool wasn’t the worst of them. He would damn himself tonight, but at least for one night, Jade would be his.
“Don’t talk. You want pleasure, I’ll give it to you.”
She shuddered. Indecision warred on her face. They both knew they shouldn’t do this.
Then her hands ran across his shoulders. “Show me.”
He crushed his lips to hers, thrusting his tongue into the warm welcome of her mouth. He plundered, he tasted and her head dropped back from the onslaught.
Too rough. He reined in his raging desire. He gentled the kiss, made it an exploration. Her tongue mated with his, strokes that made the blood rush to his groin.
Breaking off the kiss, he let his mouth slide down her neck. She smelled so good and the taste of her skin was mind-blowing. Her hands moved to the back of his head, scraping over his short hair.
How many times had he imagined this? Her is his arms, surrendering to his desire?
