I realize there are some of you waiting for Kuma’s release on 5/4. I wanted to show my appreciation for your readership so I’m posting an excerpt of the upcoming release. My current work is Fangs which is the 3rd book in the series. I don’t have cover art yet for that one but it will release 7/13. Don’t forget to leave me a comment I will be giving away a set of signed posters for the three books once I have the Fangs Cover Art. Thanks again for visiting with me.
Boris “Kuma” Blaidd was supposed to be Alpha of Volkshire. Instead he passed that mantel onto his brother and went looking for adventure as a sentinel. He only came home at the request of his family to protect his nephew.
He never wanted a mate and didn’t expect to find her. Especially since she comes in a sexy albeit skittish package and has had her car trunk retrofitted to keep a cache of weapons. Boris knows who she is and what he must do. He simply has to take a stroll through hell to accomplish the feat
Nix’s life has never been easy but she has made it work one way or another. The only person she has ever truly trusted called her and she came guns drawn, only she never expected to stay. She definitely didn’t expect to meet a hot bear disguised as a man who counters her every move with one of his own. Boris doesn’t play fair making her want things she knows can never be.
Now she wonders can they?
She moved around the island keeping distance between them. “He’s hiding. I’ll find him in a minute.”
“Shouldn’t he be getting ready for school?”
“Shouldn’t you be working?” Nix countered. She turned and dumped her drink in the sink before strolling to the other side of the counter to take the long way out of the room.
Boris twisted around and took a few steps, blocking her way. “You’ve avoided me long enough.”
She lifted her chin to look into his eyes before dropping her gaze. “I figured you were busy with the old love interest.” Nix tried to sidestep Boris.
He grabbed her by the arm, pulling her up against him. Boris gripped her other arm and slid her up his body until they were face to face. “There is only one woman I have any interest in. Unfortunately, she is too stubborn to realize that.”
“Really? You better catch her. I thought I heard your Seri in the bathroom earlier,” Nix responded drily.
“Woman, I am tired of you vexing me.” He bent his head and traced her lips with his tongue.
He tasted the cream, sugar, and chicory coffee on her mouth, pushing his tongue past the seam of her lips. She opened her mouth on a sigh and he took full advantage, taking her breath into his lungs. Her knees dug into his sides as she wrapped them around his middle and her palms slid up his arms. She buried her hands in the short hairs at the back of his head. He skittered his hands down her back to grasp her ass in his palms as he moved his mouth along her jaw. She dropped her head back allowing him access to her throat as he hiked her up higher on his body.
Voices drifted into the room and Nix went still in his arms. She dropped her legs and pulled her hands between them. Rearing back she peered into his eyes.
“People are coming.” She bit her bottom lip.
“So?” He pressed a kiss to the corner of her mouth.
“We can’t be seen like this.” Nix let her legs dangle.
“Why not? Sorry, but I’m not seeing the problem here.”
“You need a good review.” She hung her head placing it against his chin. “I heard some of your conversation. You can’t afford to have Seri get angry with you.”
“That would be Seri’s problem.” Boris started walking. Her feet kicked his shins.
“Where are you taking me?”
“I’m borrowing a page out of Keen’s book.” He pressed her against the wall for support and grabbed the knob on the pantry door.
They slipped into the dark storage room just as people entered the kitchen. Their voices muffled by the heavy wooden barrier. Being swung around in the dark, Nix lost her bearings and clung to Boris. She blinked several times waiting for her eyes to adjust to the darkness. He chuckled, his lips brushing her ear. A sliver of electricity rolled down her spine when he sucked her lobe into his mouth and bit down. She combed her fingers through his hair trying to get a grip on the strands. He carried her deeper into the shadows and she felt a shelf dig into the small of her back. The cool cans touching her skin made her shiver.
The length of his cock grazed the inside of her thigh as Nix lifted her legs to lock them around his waist. He pressed against her body and the shelving shook. Her hands skimmed the width of his back as he pressed his mouth along her throat. He moved a hand up her side, pressing a big palm between them to cover her breast, tweaking her nipple through her clothing. She leaned to the side, breaking the contact with his mouth only to press her lips against the exposed skin of his neck. Her nose rubbed the hollow below his ear and she inhaled deeply. The smell of tilled earth and thunderstorms enveloped her.
