Today, I'm sharing a snippet from my upcoming story, Alpha's Sunshine, in the Evernight Publishing anthology, Owned by the Alpha, which releases April 25th.
In this tease, May, our heroine, is meeting our hero, Sisu, for the first time after an altercation in the bar, Moon Point.
She followed him to a closed office. Every step made her quiver until her teeth practically chattered. Lee knocked and a gruff voice invited them to enter. Her mouth dried and her stomach rolled even as her feet propelled her forward and into the tiny room.
Lee said something, but she couldn’t make out the words from the rushing in her ears. Warmth radiated through her body. She couldn’t rip her gaze from the man before her. The intensity in his blue eyes caused a shiver to race down her spine. She forced herself to look away. It wasn’t a good idea.
Her mouth dried as she took in his body. He wore a black t-shirt with the bar’s logo, but it was too tight on him and stretched over his thick muscles, leaving little to the imagination. She dipped lower. Heat infused her cheeks. He wore the same jeans he’d been sporting earlier, except, they were open at the top, giving her a glimpse of dark curls which arrowed downwards. Her pussy tingled with awareness and her nipples tightened into peaks.
“Why don’t you sit down, May?”
He spoke her name as if he’d said it a thousand times, as if they were lovers.
May forced herself to move. She took the chair he offered, only flinching slightly when he sat across from her and their knees bumped.
She studied his face, taking in the details, from the long dark lashes to the scar on his nose and the freckle on his chin. She stared at his lips. What would they feel like? Soft? Demanding? Would he mind if she nibbled on his bottom bow?
“Are you scared?”
His voice startled her. Husky, deep, it reverberated within her and spread, zeroing in on her pussy. She pressed her legs together and shook her head.
He has never been this challenged.
Sisu doesn’t play games. When he desires something, he goes after it. This time he wants the woman named May. The moment she entered the bar and his wolf got a whiff of her scent, he knew she belonged to him. The problem is she’s scared and holding back secrets. But Sisu never gives up, and this won’t be the exception.
She doesn’t trust anyone, especially shifters.
May is forced to ask shifters for help, but everything goes wrong when Alpha wolf, Sisu, interferes. He claims to be her mate, but she knows that’s impossible. Soulmates don’t exist. Besides, every time he comes near, a strong keening ache grows within her. Surely it is a warning sign for her to step away, not closer. Right?
Coming April 25th!
