This is from my story, Destined Lovers, and the moment when it dawns on my heroine what exactly her new neighbour is...
Suzanna stood frozen in place, unable to believe what her eyes were telling her, even as the rational side of her brain clicked the puzzle pieces into place. His pale complexion, the coolness of his skin, the heavy shutters on the windows, and the fact that she'd never seen him in daylight all pointed to the glaringly obvious. Her drop dead gorgeous neighbor was indeed the undead. She backed away slowly, all too aware that she had nowhere to go. Something or someone was outside wishing her harm, and her rescuer was a fucking vampire.
This is why she hated Halloween. All the crazies came out to play, and she was caught right in the middle of it all. She scanned the room for anything she could use as a potential weapon and came up empty handed. Besides, had she not witnessed his speed mere seconds ago? And why the hell did she have the completely crazy notion to run her fingers over those lethal looking fangs?
Another crash against the window this time had him move in a blur of speed, and all over the house the heavy metal shutters clanged shut, effectively shutting them off from the outside world. That horrifying wail started up again, and Drake's answering deep growl vibrated through her bare feet. She wrapped her arms around herself and suppressed a groan. Clearly she was as fucked up as the rest of the night, because that sound shot straight to her pussy. Arousal soaked the plain cotton panties she wore under her pajamas. Drake's nostrils flared, and his eyes sought hers. Heat rolled through her veins at the sheer animal lust and leashed aggression she read in his darkening eyes, before he clenched his fists, shook his head, and retracted his fangs with an audible click.
His broad shoulders slumped, and she had to strain to hear his whispered words.
"I'm sorry. I didn't want for you to find out this way."
He turned away, and she couldn't help herself. Something indefinable made her move towards him. She stepped closer and ran a hand over the tightly bunched muscles in his back. A shudder went through him, and emboldened by his reaction, she stepped closer still. She slid her hand around his waist, and he interlinked his with hers and pulled her around to face him. His other hand cupped her face, and he sighed, his cool breath ruffling the loose strands of her hair falling around her face.
"You're not running away screaming."
He raised their linked hands over his heart, and she leant into the palm cupping her face.
"I wouldn't get very far if I tried, now, would I? Not with whatever is out there." She held her breath at the fury contorting his features as his fangs ran out just a little, and her pussy contracted in response. This was insane. She didn't react like this to men, ever, only in her dreams. Come morning she could never remember the pleasure inducing shadowy figure; only the nightmares remained—nightmares that now invaded her waking hours and had her facing a real life vampire.
"Besides, if you wanted to eat me, I dare say you would have done so by now."
The hold on her hand grew painful, and the deep growl pitched her arousal higher still. Damn that was sexy.
"You have no idea how much I do want to eat you."
The growled words should have sent her screaming, but they seemed to have the opposite effect on her wayward body. She gave in to instinct and standing on tiptoes ran her free hand through his slightly too long hair and tugged his head down. He went as still as a statue when she touched her lips to his and whispered, "Then eat me."
When the blood moon coincides with Halloween, the forces of darkness unite to wreak their evil spells. Will this All Hallows Eve bring joy or sorrow? Curses abound and destiny calls, as a vampire watches over his human. Devils atone to the moon, and shifters hunt their mate on land protected by a powerful white witch. An angel takes human shape to protect the gypsy girl he loves, and a black widow hunts her prey in human form.
In these five chilling and sexy tales, is love enough to break the cycle? Or is all lost under the orange glow of the menacing sphere in the sky?
