Book 3, Royal Pride
Centuries after what should have been a blessing from a goddess, Mira has gone from the chosen daughter to a woman shamed. She’s found a tentative peace among her family and the females they’ve chosen to mate. And despite the potentially fatal consequences, Mira has found the one thing she never thought she’d have—love. Josh is the only male she’s ever wanted, desired and burned for, and he’s the only man she can never hope to keep.
One glance into Mira’s exotic feline eyes and Josh is lost. She’s everything he never knew he wanted and loving her becomes a passion he can’t deny. The obstacles keeping them apart seem insurmountable, but Josh knows he’s the man Mira needs. With every passionate encounter, every stolen touch, his certainty that he and Mira belong together grows. He’ll defy every shifter decree and fight to his dying breath to convince those around them of the truth—Mira belongs to him, mind, body and soul.
A Romantica® Paranormal erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave
Forbidden love…Undeniable passion.
Gaze locked to hers, he sifted his fingers through her hair. With slow, controlled movements, he wrapped her locks around his hand. The gentle tugging sped her pulse. He held her immobilized with the section of her hair and a palm over her lower back.
Time stretched. Finally, he gave a hard yank to her hair. Her breasts jutted forward. He leaned over her body so each breath she took pushed her erect tips into his hard chest. Unable to break the spell he weaved around her, she panted and awaited his next move.
He trailed a single finger across her shoulder. His teasing stroke left a path of heat and sensitivity in its wake. He inched his calloused fingertip closer to her old scar, his intent clear. She sucked in a rough breath, but he didn’t touch the mark. He skimmed the length of her neck, across her cheek to her lips. Her pent-up air escaped in a rush. Pants left her mouth parted. He took advantage of the invitation. He slid his finger between her lips and stroked her descended canines.
Her eyelids drifted shut on a moan.
“I love your fangs. They look damn sexy and make kissing you even better.”
She focused on him to judge his words. Sincerity shown in his eyes along with lust. “But I shouldn’t have bitten you.”
A lopsided smile graced his face. Her heart flipped over.
He leaned in and pressed his lips to hers. “Then the proper thing to do is kiss it and make it all better.” He traced her lower lip with the tip of his tongue before sweeping it across the upper one. “Kiss me this time, Mira.”
