Exclusive Excerpt ::: Until Forever Comes

“There you are,” Miguel said, caressing my head with his big cool hand. I blinked up at him. “You’re shivering. Do you have clothes, young one, or did you come out here in your wolf form?”

I frowned as I rose to my feet. “I’m twenty. I’m not young.” I crossed my arms over my chest. “I’m a man.”

One side of Miguel’s mouth turned up and he twitched his lips in amusement. It was the first smile I’d seen on his face that didn’t look predatory. “Twenty, you say? I’m more than four hundred years old.” He dropped his gaze between my legs and then the increasingly familiar and arousing wicked grin spread across his face. “But you are most definitely a man. Who would’ve thought such a small body would have such a big dick?”

I blushed at his crude words and instinctively tried to cover myself with my hands.

Miguel groaned and then licked my cheek, from my jaw to just under my eye, over and over again. It was such a canine gesture that it took me off guard.

“I can see your blood just beneath your skin.” His voice was husky and low. “I can hear it.” He licked his lips.

“Hear it?” I whispered.

“Your blood. I can hear your blood thrumming through your veins. It’s so loud.” He dipped his head and grazed my neck with an open mouth. “Never heard it so strongly before. It’s like it’s calling to me.”

With no thought toward self-preservation, I cocked my head and offered my neck to the bloodsucker, whom I had just witnessed all but killing a man. And that was after he’d drained two other half-souls who were, at that moment, still lying on the ground not more than fifteen feet from us.

“I can’t drink you, wolf,” he said regretfully as he continued mouthing my skin. “Your kind is poison, not food.”

I knew that, of course. The fact that vampires were allergic to shifter blood was one of our strengths during battle. Without the ability to suck us dry, they lost their primary tool and we were more evenly matched.

Despite that, I needed Miguel to feed from me. Not because I wanted to hurt him, but because I could feel what he described too. Not thirty minutes had passed since I’d crouched on the ground, bleeding, but already my body felt too full, my skin too tight. It was a familiar feeling, one I’d lived with for as long as I could remember. But only in that moment did I recognize it for what it was: too much blood in my body, in my veins, in my heart. I needed release, and I knew instinctively that Miguel could give it to me.

“So warm,” he said as he licked and kissed the pulsing veins in my neck. I trembled, and he pulled his face back, pursing his lips in disapproval. “And we need to make sure you stay that way. You need to shift back or we need to find you something to wear, and then I’ll walk you out of town.”
