The release for my second novel, Everlasting, is approaching quickly. So here is a tasty snippet.
“What in the name of the gods is this?” Reign shoveled another mouthful.
Alexis planned on being distant. How could she when he was shirtless in her kitchen, licking chocolate from his fingers with the glee of a child. “It’s called chocolate cake. You like?”
His eyes rolled back in his head. He nodded. Smudges of cake were on his lips and crumbs littered his chest. How could you not adore a man who loved chocolate?
“You have food . . .” She pointed to the corner of his lips. His tongue flicked out and licked the crumbs away.
She looked at his flawless body and remembered his lips and tongue on her breasts. Him moving inside her body and her needing so much more of him. He filled her, completed the puzzle missing from her heart.
He’s leaving you. But right now, he’s here.
She brushed the crumbs away and laid a hand on his chest. His thoughts filled her mind. He wanted to bury himself as deep inside her as he could possibly get. Warmth glazed over her, tightening her nipple and clenching her core.
A wolfish grin crossed Reign’s face as his gaze traveled down her body. Lost, she couldn’t resist when his mouth devoured her. He tasted of chocolate. His sinfully hard body felt like heaven. He picked her up and sat her on the kitchen island. Her legs draped around him. He released her hair, pulled her tresses to the side, and nuzzled her neck, tickling her with his whiskers before tiny kissed blazed a trail to her earlobe. A palm cupped her breast through her shirt. She gripped his biceps and let her head dropped back, exposing all of her to him.
He stilled. His hands dropped from her body.
Hostile aggression had replaced his playful smile. In his hand, he clutched his blade. “They’re here.”
