Happy middle of the week to you guys, and as ever big thanks to Angelica Dawson for organizing the tease ever week. Our alphas are now live, so, I give you another tease from my story in this fabulous anthology.
This takes place a few lines down from last week's tease. Raphael has come to her rescue and they share their first kiss...
“Hey, little doe. It’s all right, I’ve got you.”
She blinked and the most delightful blush stole across her far too pale, heart-shaped face. Her little nose wrinkled up, her brows drew together, and she inhaled deeply. That blush deepened, her breathing sped up, and her sweet musk increased. Sensing her body’s immediate response to his nearness did nothing to help Raphael control his wolf. His jaw ached with the need to bite her shoulder and to cement this bond between them, and he knew his incisors had grown more prominent. His cock hardened and the little bundle of curves in his arms gasped when she noticed that body part of his nudging her hip.
“No, please, I can’t. No.”
She struggled in his arms, or tried to. As ineffective as a newborn’s mewls, her voice barely carried and her hand pushing against his chest simply served to inflame his wolf. His animal didn’t care about the circumstances. All he wanted was to pin this woman down right here and now, fill her with his cum, and listen to her screams of ecstasy as she came all over his dick with his teeth buried in her neck.
Raphael closed his eyes, took a deep breath in to draw her sweet scent into his lungs, and to appease his wolf. Even so, he knew his voice came out distorted when he spoke to her again.
“You can, and you will, little doe, but not here and not now. Where do you live? Let me take you home.”
His mate jerked in his arms, and she frantically shook her head.
“No, you… mph.”
Kissing her seemed the most expedient way to shut up her protests, if not the wisest to help his control.
Her gasp of surprise granted him access, and Raphael took full advantage of that fact. He took charge of the kiss, letting his animal take over and do the talking for him. His wolf’s low growls filled the night air when she kissed him back. Tentatively at first, as though she was afraid of his response, and then bolder. Her hands wrapped around his neck, fisted in his long hair, and the sweet scent of aroused woman hit him in the gut.
It would have been so easy to pin her against a tree, bury himself balls deep inside her sweet body, and fuck her brains out. In the past, that was exactly what Raphael would have done, but this woman setting his blood alight with lust was not just any woman. She was his mate, and she deserved better than an animalistic fuck against a tree. As he breathed in her scent, imprinting the feel and taste of her onto his brain, he also pulled back.
All flushed and warm now, she clung to him, and when she tried to pull his head back down to kiss him, he smiled and shook his head.
“Your address, my sweet. Let’s get you home and then we can finish this.”
She blinked again in that sweet confused way she had, but she did whisper her response.
“The teacher’s cottage in the village, but…” She stopped speaking and her terrified deer briefly appeared in her eyes.
He sensed the reason for her flight response before he heard them. Furious growls vibrated through the air.
Southern wolves on the opposite bank. Fuck it all to hell and back. They were exposed and he was on his own with his fragile mate to protect.
Pushing her away from him, he shifted and put his large bulk between his mate and the other wolves.
Not every night you’re hunted by wolves, meet your mate and then run out on him...
Everyone knows wolves eat deer, so when Aubrey Verene accidentally stumbles into their monthly hunt, she runs for her life.
Straight into the path of the biggest wolf of them all.
Raphael Taylor, Alpha of his pack, is enjoying the thrill of the chase. He certainly doesn’t expect to find his own mate, let alone see her being pursued by the rival pack on his territory.
His wolf’s revenge is as swift as it is deadly.
No one touches what’s his.
Convincing his mate that being eaten by this particular wolf is a good idea proves trickier, never mind the reluctance of his pack to accept a deer in their midst.
Can this unlikely mating stand up to the challenge, or are they doomed from the start?
The Alpha lives for the hunt...
Driven by instinct, an Alpha shifter recognizes his fated mate from one scent, one touch. He'll pursue his woman, regardless of the cost, and anyone else would be smart to get out of his way. He won't stop until he takes possession of his prize.
Although the hunter doesn't need convincing, his mate certainly does. The Alpha will have to prove himself as a lover and convince his woman that he plays for keeps.
