Released from prison to find a murderer, a prison-hardened Varek Leale is convinced no woman deserves the man he’s become, but his Aeveren destiny makes him succumb to sweet and sexy Callia Reynolds. To catch a murderer, he and Callia must find an Aeveren with the power to control time. But Amon Kalins isn’t a man to trifle with, and when he wants something, he’ll use his powers, devastating charm, and good looks to get it.
When Amon manipulates time and seduces her away, Varek must turn to the people who set him free for help to get her back. But the Council doesn’t do anything without requiring something in return, and what they want is Amon Kalins, one of the most powerful Aeveren ever. Varek will do what he must to capture Amon and find Callia. If he doesn’t, she’ll be lost to him for untold lifetimes.
Callia waited silently for him to speak, knowing her silence gave her the upper hand. If he thought he was going to lecture her on dating human men, he was in for a surprise. She’d break her silence to tell him where to stick his anti-human ideas.
He looked at her standing in front of him, full of pride and looking irritated at him. He had to fight the urge to push her up against the wall and kiss her deeply.
Maybe later back at home.
“I don’t want you seeing anyone else.”
The words hit Callia deep inside, and she instinctively took a step toward him, decreasing the space that separated them to just a few inches. Excitement coursed through her body. God, she wanted him!
But there was no way she’d make it easy for him.
“And just who do you think you are to tell me who I can and can’t see? Or date?” Callia intentionally hesitated and then, choosing her words carefully, said, “Or do whatever I damn well please with them?”
Varek controlled his response to ensure she understood his point. He wasn’t so much angry as he was jealous and possessive.
“I’m your destined one and if anyone is going to damn well please you, it’s going to be me. And only me.”
Callia silently congratulated herself and thanked her grandmother and then stepped up right next to him, her breasts grazing his ribs.
“Let me out.” She wanted to say she didn’t want anyone but him, but she wanted to push him just a little more.
The blood rushed to between his legs. Damnit, she made him hard. He knew she wanted him as much as he did her, so why the power struggle? He felt himself begin to lose control. His body wanted to forego the verbal sparring his mind loved. With great effort, he tamped down his desire and leaned into her.
When he spoke, the words came out almost as a growl. “No one else.”
Callia knew it was time to go in for the kill. She looked into his black eyes and whispered, her lips a mere breath away, “I’ll think about it.” Instantly, she understood that she wouldn’t leave the room without knowing exactly how much he wanted her.Adult Excerpt:
Varek led Callia into his room and closed the door behind them. Standing there in front of him, she looked so unbelievably sexy, but he didn’t want this time to be fast and hard like the last time. He kissed her gently on the lips and began to slowly undress her as Callia reached for his clothes and worked to remove them.
“Callia, I want to make love to you slow and sweet.”
As he spoke, his hands slowly traced her curves, lingering on her breasts. The sharp intake of breath when he gently squeezed her nipple told him she was as excited as he was, but he wanted to prolong the pleasure of their lovemaking this time. He wanted her to truly know what it meant to be made love to.
Callia lay on the bed and welcomed Varek to her with open arms. He rested much of his weight on his forearms, so he didn’t hurt her. Kissing down her neck to the hollow at its base, he groaned against her skin as he softly pressed his lips against it. Her hands ran through his hair, tugging as he nipped lightly at her collarbone.
Varek slid up her body to kiss her lips again, and moaned into her mouth when she slid her tongue over his. When she sucked his tongue into her mouth, his cock hardened even more.
He loved the taste of her, the feel of her mouth on his, the sensation of her tongue gliding over his, mingling with his. Her sensuality excited him more than he ever thought possible. She teased him, made his skin feel like he was on fire. Her body moved under his, building his passion.
“Callia, I need you. I don’t want a life without you.” His voice was passionate, full of emotion.
He looked into those beautiful hazel eyes of hers like he was searching for himself in her. Did she love him as deeply as he loved her?
He doubted she could love him because of her, the one before Callia. His fear of love shone in his eyes.
She loved him as she had loved no other in seven lifetimes. She loved him as easily as she breathed.
“Varek, there is no life for me without you. Your happiness is my happiness, your sadness my sadness. I am your destined one. I love you.”
As he closed his eyes, he cradled her face in his hands and kissed her sweetly. She was his. His Callia. The one who helped him see that he could love again.
He moved his body down hers, kissing her breasts and stomach slowly. Each spot he kissed he touched with his fingertips as if he couldn’t bear to leave any part of her but craved the parts he hadn’t touched yet. As he moved down her body, his silky, black hair feathered across her skin, exciting her even more. He kissed one spot while caressing another.
His mouth reached her sex and just the brush of his lips made her tremble. He skimmed over where she so desperately wanted his mouth and kissed her soft inner thighs. His desire increased, and he began slowly sucking her skin and flicking his tongue up her leg. But what he truly desired waited for him, needy and wet.
Varek moved slowly between her legs, teasing her with his fingers all around where he desperately wanted to place his mouth. Callia lifted her hips, hoping to persuade him to do just what he wanted. He moaned sensually and placed a hand on each of her hips, pinning her lower body to the bed. He licked his lips, and the warmth of anticipation ran through her, making her wet.
He hovered over her sex, his hot breath exciting her even more. And then with just the soft tip of his tongue, he touched her slick skin. What felt like electric shocks raced into her body, touching her deep inside. Each drag of his tongue became more insistent until he was fully tasting her with his whole mouth.
Varek expertly ran his tongue over her most sensitive spot and more shocks shivered into her. Pleased by her reaction, he repeated the action but finished by sucking on her swollen nub, bringing her closer to orgasm. Once more, this time with the addition of two fingers slid inside her, sent her over the edge and she desperately grabbed handfuls of hair as she pulled him closer. He rode her orgasm, his mouth savoring everything she offered.
When he lifted his head, Callia’s eyes were closed and she bit her lower lip. Still enjoying the aftershocks, she smiled when he climbed up toward her face.
Without a word, she urged him onto his back so she could give him the kind of pleasure he’d given her. She kissed down his torso while her hands stroked his sides and then his lower abdomen and hips. His thick erection strained as her lips teased his skin, and she took it in her hand, almost wrapping her fingers around it. A moan escaped from his mouth as she licked the head softly.
As she took his cock into her mouth, Varek opened his eyes to watch. The sight of him disappearing into her, combined with the feel of her tongue gliding over the head and shaft, almost made him come. Callia stroked under his cock and gently squeezed each time her mouth traveled up to the head to suck greedily.
Varek felt his orgasm begin deep inside him and hoarsely said, “I can’t hold back anymore.” He exploded into her mouth and groaned as she sucked him to the end.
Callia rose up to his face, placed a kiss on his nose and nibbled his ear. Still hard, Varek rolled her onto her back and placed himself at her entrance. Slowly he thrust into her, stretching her to accommodate him.
“Take me. Take all of me, Callia.”
Come find me!
