EXCERPT FROM THE MATING INTENT
(Copyright 2014 by Bonnie Vanak)
That deep, smoky voice stroked over her like the touch of his calloused hands upon her bare flesh. Sienna’s toes curled in her hiking boots as she remembered him whispering into her ear, his warm breath upon her neck as he surged deep inside her, creating such exquisite pleasure she’d screamed…
Not. Going. There.
“Gabriel.” Sienna jammed her hands into her pockets to keep from touching him. “I need a place to stay for a few days and use of the Spring of Danu.”
He remained silent.
Gabriel was a big guy, solid and muscled, with a quiet demeanor. You could make the mistake of underestimating him because he seldom talked much upon first meeting someone. Then you realized he was studying you, as a cat studies a mouse he may or may not devour. His silence masked a predatory assessment, determining if you were a threat, or a tasty treat.
After spending three days of carnal delights in his bed, Sienna knew she’d already been labeled the latter.
Finally, he smiled. “Same old Sienna. Always very direct in your needs.”
A flush heated her face as she remembered the last time she’d stated a particular need to him, begging for him to touch her in one place…
“No point in wasting words. You never do.”
“Right.” He tilted his head, watching her. “I do have a place where you can stay. And I will allow you to see the spring.”
It was too easy. She tensed, watching the glint in his eyes. Sienna thought fast. “Maybe before I unpack, we should go over your admission price.”
His gaze darkened and his muscled body took on a sudden intensity. She’d seen this focused concentration before, right before he’d slid deep inside her…
“No. Oh no. Hell no.”
“I didn’t tell you yet.”
“No need. I can see it here.” Sienna pointed two fingers at her eyes. “I am not spending the night with you.”
“Pixie, do you take me for someone that clichéd?” He spread out his hands, a wounded look on his face. “I thought you knew me better.”
“I do, which is why I said it.”
Gabriel sighed. “My beautiful, stubborn Elf. I would never ask you to spend the night as the price of cleansing yourself in the sacred spring.”
Sienna relaxed a little “What then? Jewels? Money? I can take out a loan.”
He ignored that. “One night in my bed would never suffice.”
Uh oh. “Gabriel…”
Her pulse skittered a crazy beat as he began to circle her, the panther sizing up his intended prey. “I want you naked in my arms when we celebrate the Blood Moon Festival with my clan. You and I making love beneath the open sky, our cries of pleasure honoring the goddess.”
He stepped close enough for her to see the gold flecking his jade eyes. “Making love until we’re both panting and sweaty and trembling, and then doing it again. And again. And again...”
Sienna’s heart skidded to a halt. She pressed back against the cooler, wanting to tamp down the heat his smoldering gaze created, a heat that curled through her body like smoke.
“Can’t or won’t?” Gabriel leaned close, caging her between his muscled arms. “You did the last time.”
“Don’t do this to me, Gabriel. I’ll give you anything…”
“Anything?” His gaze glittered with male intent.
“Anything that requires a charge card and purchases. Anything that doesn’t require me to get naked.”
“We could be inventive and leave your clothes on.”
