Come see what tasty treat I have for you today...
Tasty treat today is Dark Burn sexy little snippet from my most recent release...
Priya turned. Doulzen emerged from the shadows in one corner of her room. His presence was palpable, though he looked wrong without his ever-present hat and trench coat. Priya's heart skipped. How had he gotten into the aerie?
"You refuse to see me after all I've done?" He stalked toward her, closing the distance. Priya backed up until the backs of her knees hit the edge of her bed, forcing her to sit or fall.
"Refused? I didn't know you were here, Doulzen. I didn't think you could even get in." The dark look in his eye made her pulse jump. "Are you going to kill me now, shadow hunter?" Priya had no means of self-defense, nothing to really stop him. If she called for help, who would hear her in such a large place?
His silver eyes slid over her body. She could feel them as they scanned her neckline, her breasts. He leaned into her, forcing her to lie back on the bed. His hot breath was on her cheek as he sucked in ragged gasps. She'd be damned if the sound of his harsh breathing didn't turn her on. Would he kiss her instead of killing her? Doulzen brought his head up, his lips barely above hers. "I have given everything for you, my power, my very being, and you refuse me."
"I swear—" She swallowed. Her nipples tightened against the heat of his flesh through her shirt. Her core was wet for him. Her body betrayed her every thought of a shadow hunter. How could she be attracted to someone who killed her kind? The thought seemed to steady her. "I didn't even know you were here." What would he do with her? What did she want him to do with her? That simple question left an ache between her legs she was sure Doulzen could soothe. She should be worried they'd come for her after her abrupt exit from lunch, but with Doulzen pressed so close, she didn't care.
There was an edge to the man, something far more primal . . . more instinctive in him than before. Something had changed and despite not knowing what it was, she didn't feel threatened. Aroused was a far better word for what was going through her body. By the feel of his erection against her, she was pretty sure he wasn't planning on killing her.
Too much had happened, her brain wanted her to slow down, to try and figure out what was happening, between the crap with Doulzen and then Richard, but her body told her head to fuck off. Her heart thundered in her chest, and she gasped when he shoved his hips between her legs and pushed against her. Her body craved more, wanted the barriers between them gone. The little voice in the back of her head was no match for the overpowering urge to get closer to him.
Doulzen's hot mouth came down on hers and she moaned, closing her eyes. Why did this kiss feel so damn good, like she had a craving for chocolate and was suddenly drowning in it? The smell of him, sensual musk, manly, but with a hint of earth. Her hips pushed up to meet his as she opened her lips to him, letting his tongue penetrate her. He was rough and all consuming, as if he couldn't get enough. The world disappeared except for the intense heat pulsing from both of them.
He pulled back from the kiss. "I want you."
She writhed beneath him.
"Open your eyes, Priya."
She did as she was told. Doulzen's hooded gaze met hers. His jaw clenched when she bucked her hips against him again. "Tell me what you want." His words came out dark, tempting. Priya knew once she answered, life would never be the same.
