from my current WIP, Bound By Defiance. It’s unedited, but I think it’s good.
Jacob felt his nostrils flare at the angry heat radiating from her body but he shoved the response deep down into the pit of his gut. “My master, the vampire Navarr, is coming for you.”
The contempt left Inari’s face in a split second. Her eyes grew wide, her full lips parted in a soft gasp, her heartbeat doubled and the potent aroma of her feminine juices flooded the air. “Navarr?” she whispered on a breath.
Something scalding hot and acrid punched into Jacob’s chest. He sank his nails into his palms. Fuck. What the hell was he doing feeling jealous? Unable to stop himself, he took a step closer to her. And was stopped instead by an invisible wall.
With fluid grace, the Principatus turned her head, her gaze going to the small window to her left. He followed her stare, noting with sinking frustration the fading light beyond the glass, the purple sky and the deep red glow of sunset. Curse it. He had to get her out of her home.
And into your bed?
Punching his fist against the doorjamb, he fixed her profile with a hard glare. “Please, Ms R’Orq. When I left Navarr he was not happy.”
She started – a little – and turned her stare back to his face, her cheeks flushed, her breath rapid. His gaze strayed to the tiny pulse beating under her skin at the place her neck became her shoulder and saliva filled his mouth again. He felt his fangs press against his lower lip, his demon growling for release.
Just one taste. That’s all. Just one…
He jerked his stare back up to her face, disgust surging through his lifeless veins. Dark Ones. Where was his control? His loyalty?
“If you do anything I don’t like, I will destroy you. Regardless who your master is.”
Inari’s blunt promise, plus the deadly promise in her eyes, filled Jacob with perverse relief. She was coming with him. Now all he had to do was get her to Fat Chuckle’s compound before Navarr discovered what he was doing. Or before he succumbed to the undeniable need to fill her sex with his cock and his mouth with her blood. He gave her a sharp nod. “I understand and-”
“And what, General Ford?”
The deep male voice behind him turned Jacob’s cold blood to ice. He froze, his stare locked on Inari’s face, his throat squeezing tight as fear erupted in her green, green eyes. “Navarr,” she whispered, taking a step backward.
“I have told you repeatedly, Inari R’Orq,” Navarr’s voice sounded at Jacob’s left, a low, smooth purr, “to call me Master.” There was a dark blur of mass, a surge in displaced air, and suddenly Jacob was staring at Navarr’s back, his master towering over Inari in the middle of her apartment, his right hand cupping her throat. “And you are wearing far too many clothes.”
With barely a flex of his shoulders, Navarr threw her against the sofa. Her arse hit the cushioned arm of the piece of furniture but before she could regain balance, he destroyed the distance between them in another blur, curling the fingers of his right hand around her upper arm and hauling her against his body. She slammed into him, and Jacob could only watch from the threshold, stunned, as she smashed her knee up into his master’s groin.
Yet Navarr seemed to predict her move. He snatched at her leg, grabbing her high on the thigh and yanking her knee beside his body. “Now, now, succubus.” His growled murmur reached Jacob across Inari’s living room and Jacob felt his stomach knot at the molten fury in each word. “Anyone would think you don’t like me.”
He spun her about, his arms and hands encircling her, imprisoning her with blurring speed to jerk her back against his body. One hand flattened over the plane of her belly, his fingertips skimming the curve between her thighs, the other snaking up her ribcage to capture one latex-covered breast. Two sets of eyes stared at Jacob from within the small room: one black and smouldering, one green and wide with…with…
“Invite him in.”
Jacob’s body flooded with tight heat at Navarr’s command. He stared at them both, silent, unable to move or say a word.
Inari shook her head. “No.”
Navarr slid his hand lower down her belly, his fingers dipping between her tightly pressed thighs. “Invite. Him. In.”
She shook her head again. “No.”
The fingers between her thighs moved, a slow, short stroking motion that made Jacob’s mouth water and his fangs extend. Navarr lowered his head to Inari’s, his lips brushing her cheek as the hand on her breast began to inch higher up her chest. “Invite General Ford in, Inari, or I will deny you what the wet heat between your legs tells me you so desperately want.”
She whimpered, the sound sending a surge of hot blood to Jacob’s groin.
Navarr’s eyes glinted black power and he cupped her chin with long fingers, holding her head motionless as he feathered a row of kisses down the column of her neck. “Invite him in, Principatus, and we will both make you scream.”
Jacob held Inari’s stare, his body on fire, his cock straining for release.
“Invite him in, Inari,” Navarr ordered against her neck, his fangs scrapping her flesh. “Now.”
“Come in to my home, General Ford.”
Before the whispered invitation finished falling from Inari’s lips, Jacob stepped into her apartment.
And crushed her mouth with his.[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text admin_label=”Social Bar” global_module=”335″ saved_tabs=”all” background_layout=”light” text_orientation=”left” use_border_color=”off” border_color=”#ffffff” border_style=”solid”] [dvk_social_sharing][et_bloom_inline optin_id=”optin_1″] [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type=”1_3″][et_pb_sidebar admin_label=”Sidebar” orientation=”right” area=”sidebar-1″ background_layout=”light” remove_border=”on” module_class=”post-sidebar” saved_tabs=”all” global_module=”351″] [/et_pb_sidebar][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section][et_pb_section admin_label=”Section” global_module=”218″ fullwidth=”off” specialty=”off” transparent_background=”off” background_color=”#1d1d1d” allow_player_pause=”off” inner_shadow=”off” parallax=”off” parallax_method=”off” padding_mobile=”on” module_class=”global-footer” make_fullwidth=”off” use_custom_width=”off” width_unit=”on” make_equal=”off” use_custom_gutter=”off” custom_padding=”|0px”][et_pb_row global_parent=”218″ admin_label=”Row” make_fullwidth=”off” use_custom_width=”off” width_unit=”on” use_custom_gutter=”off” padding_mobile=”on” allow_player_pause=”off” parallax=”off” parallax_method=”off” make_equal=”off” column_padding_mobile=”on” custom_padding=”|75px”][et_pb_column type=”1_3″][et_pb_text global_parent=”218″ admin_label=”Tweet With Lexxie” background_layout=”dark” text_orientation=”center” use_border_color=”off” border_color=”#ffffff” border_style=”solid”]
