#MFRWauthor BOOK SPOTLIGHT: Rose of Crimson @SecretCravings by Zrinka Jelic @FireTulip

MFRW Author Zrinka Jelic released Rose of Crimson, a Mainstream Paranormal Romance, with Secret Cravings Publishing.

Kate Rokov‘s grades are plummeting. She needs to get the voice out of her head or she will flunk her finals. Matthis Zrin, a three centuries old immortal, born into an aristocratic family as Miles Rusinic, is enthralled with Kate. It is his voice preventing Kate from sleeping and her ignorance is testing his limits. He wants her to write down his story to settle his wife’s earthbound spirit. His tragic love story has become Kate’s obsession since fifth grade during her summer trip to Rusinic castle. Their coming together settles the old spirit and breaks an ancient curse, and in doing so, a flame spanning over three centuries reignites and burns with wild desire. In this tale of two life times and desire versus emotional need, both know some dreams will have to wait for the right time, but the magic between them is impossible to withstand. A three centuries old curse, an eternal love destroyed by a family feud...and only one woman can break the doom and settle the ancient spirits.
REVIEW
"A Must Read"
By Becky Cox on February 18, 2015
Format: Kindle Edition
"This is a well written story that draws you in and allows you to live the experiences along with the characters. I look forwarded to reading Bonded by Crimson. I would recommend this book to not just paranormal readers but anyone who loves a great love story."

"Do not despair. When two souls are meant to be together, eventually they find their way back."

EXCERPT
"He cupped her face in his hands, broke the kiss and pressed his forehead to hers. “No, Kate. No. We can’t…I can’t.”
The fantasy shattered and coldness engulfed her. She licked her lips, her mouth dry. “Why not?”
“I lost her, Kate. I lost my wife less than a year ago and without her…” He gulped. His warm breath tickled her skin. “I’m lost too.”
Her heart clenched. She wrapped her arms around him and pulled him close. The pain was all too fresh for him, but she had to ask. “Was your wife Dobrila?”
Stupid question, she realized. Who else could have been? He couldn't mourn anyone like this."
ABOUT Zrinka Jelic
Zrinka lives in Ontario, Canada.

#MFRWauthor Interview: Hers To Bear @TamaraHoffa @SecretCravings

Let's talk books with MFRW Author Tamara Hoffa.
Tamara is an author, an editor, and reviews/promotions coordinator for Secret Cravings Publishing. Tamara is proof positive that it’s never too late to reach for your dreams. 
facebook  |  goodreads  |  blog  |  pinterest  |  google +

What genres do you like to read?
 I've always read primarily romance, although i do love a good mystery too. But, I am a sucker for a happy ending and a true believer in life mates and finding that ""perfect"" person for you. Even is he or she isn't always so ""perfect."" I love writing about those stories.

Do you like humor in our fiction?
As for humor in fiction I love it! My favorite novels all contain humor to lighten the mood.Why? Several reasons, I guess. My DH has a wonderful sense of humor and always makes me smile. I think life is too short not to look at the laughter whenever we can. And last but not least, laughter lifts another's day.
I'l never thought of myself as a particularly ""funny"" person. I don't tell jokes, etc. But I do find humor in quirky characters and I see irony and puns all around me!

Do you drink coffee?
Probably too much! My coffee addiction seems to find its way into every book, and lots of other small personality quirks, (I'll never tell)

Tell us about the first book you submitted.
My first submission was kind of a fluke, I was beta reading for a few author friends and reviewing for a blog site and my friends kept saying ""you should write a book". I happened upon an ad for a short story contest and I thought, ""Okay, I'll try it."" The short is called Heart of a Soldier, It's a military romance. I didn't win the contest, but I did get a contact!

What genres do you write?
I have written military, cowboy and contemporary romance, my new release is paranormal romance and I am super excited about this new series. Paranormal romance is my favorite genre to read and I love this little community I have created in Honey Corners, West Virginia.

Tell us about your newest book.
I love the story of how Hers to Bear was born, I was at a release party event (sorry, I don't remember whose) and one of the authors asked the question ""If you were to write a paraormal romance, what kind of shifter would your hero/heroine be? and how would they meet?""
Now you know what happens when you give an author a prompt? That was all it took, for a week after I played the game at the contest, the characters yelled at me to write their story, and then their friends came along and now it's a 5 book series! LOL

Hers to Bear
Animal in Me series, Book 1

Erotic Paranormal Romance
Secret Cravings Publishing
Jenna Raynes has been overlooked by men all her life. A big, beautiful, woman, she was always the friend, never the lover. At twenty-five she has never even been kissed. All that changes in a heartbeat with one word from an alpha bear… “Mine.”
Sippe Leiter, Bern Helms got more than he bargained for when he stepped into Andy’s market for a jar of honey. He found his mate! Now if he can only keep her.
HUNTS, Humans United Negation Team for Shifters is targeting children from all the shifter groups. When Bern’s mate gets caught in the backlash and kidnapped along with his niece, all bets are off. Nothing will keep a bear from his mate. The hunters are about to become the hunted… 
An erotic paranormal romance, with laughter, suspense and a ten foot grizzly bear who will steal your heart (and your honey, better watch out!)

Mating the Honey Corner’s alpha should mean hot sex and cleaning the den. Instead, Rogue wolves, kidnapping scientists, and raging sows with PMS are Hers to Bear!

EXCERPT
Bern had come into the store for his daily honey fix. He admitted it, he was addicted to the stuff. He had just bought two dozen biscuits at the bakery and he was going to drown them in honey, along with a nice piece of salmon for dinner.
When he stepped through the door he stopped in his tracks. His nostrils flared and his heart began to race. What was that fabulous scent? Like honey and vanilla, but something else too. Something that was making his cock stand up and do a happy dance in his pants.
Mate. Oh my God and goddess, his mate was in this store. He couldn’t think. Instinct took over and his legs carried him to the source of the tantalizing scent that had his libido raging and his bear roaring.
He was beside her before his brain had caught up with his body. He had to touch her. She was his. His hand covered hers as she reached for a jar of honey on the shelf. “Mine,” he growled. When she looked up at him with crystal blue eyes he thought he’d fallen into them and drowned.
Flawless porcelain skin covered a face that could have been painted by Botticelli. Pale blonde lashes framed her startled eyes and her cheeks were flushed an enticing pink. She bit her bottom lip and he wanted to kiss away the sting her torment caused the luscious flesh.
“There’s more than one jar,” she said, and her voice was husky and sweet.
He released her hand and skimmed his along the velvet softness of her cheek. She shivered.
“I am Bern, and you are mine,” he said.
She took a step back and a low growl escaped his throat. His bear didn’t like their mate backing away from them.
“I beg your pardon?”
“You are mine. You are my mate.”
Fear sparked in the woman. He could scent it, but along with the fear was a slight perfume of desire too. She looked around frantically and Bern could sense she was about to flee. He placed a hand on her arm.
“Do not run from me. Please.”
“I need to sit down.” She was shaking now.
Bern put his arm around her to steady her. His bear liked that. It wanted their scent to surround her. He started to lead her out of the store.
“Where are you taking me?” She hesitated.
“There is a bench outside where we can sit. It’s not far.”
She blinked up at him like an owl. “Okay.”

BOOK SPOTLIGHT: Holding Hope #FREEBOOK @PalomaBeck #MFRWauthor

It's a Free Read!
MFRW Author Paloma Beck released Holding Hope, an erotic paranormal romance novella, as part of her Seven Sin Sisters series with Secret Cravings Publishing.

The seven Sinster sisters are entwined in a legacy originating back from the time of the Italian Wars in the 1500s. One by one, they’ll find their mates from the immortal Valendite Breeds and secure their place in history.

Lucas believed he was fated to live out a solitary existence. He devoted himself to the sole mission of protecting his family and his breed when the woman he thought to be his mate died right in front of his eyes. With only one fated mate, Lucas understood his life would be lived alone.

Until he held hope in his arms… Ella was a captive of his sworn enemy when he found her and immediately felt the connection. Lucas rescued her, nursed her back to health and cared for her. Now can he convince her to embrace her identity as one of the women of the Magdalena Circle? This might prove to me his most difficult mission yet.

This novella is recommended to be read as book 4.5 in the Seven Sin Sisters series.
EXCERPTLucas held the most precious thing in his arms, something he thought he’d never have in his many years. Once, just once before, had he allowed himself to hope but it hadn’t been meant to be. Martha had died before he could claim her but he’d been certain at the time that she was his mate. Could it be he was wrong? He’d lived years believing he’d lost his only chance at love, his one true mate. Now, holding Ella in his arms, Lucas understood Martha hadn’t been his mate after all. You couldn’t have two mates –two people perfect for you- and with all certainty, every fiber of his being assured him that he was holding his mate in his arms at this very moment.
He looked down at Ella. She appeared so young; he wondered how old she was. He knew nothing about her and still his heart beat only for her now. Her pale skin was soft under his calloused fingers. He longed to stroke his fingers through her short blond hair but didn’t want to disturb her. She remained limp and still but he took solace in knowing she was calmer now. Her cinnamon brown eyes were closed again. He’d nearly broken down when those precious eyes looked up at him, first afraid and then hopeful. They’d been filled with hope, with such faith and a trust he didn’t deserve.
His gut clenched with the knowledge that he’d claimed this magnificent woman without her consent. Would she understand he had no choice? She was so weak and seemed so vulnerable. He’d held her the entire flight back to the United States, hadn’t let anyone so much as touch her. When Donovan, the TEU’s medic, tried to help, Lucas fought back his growls while he refused his help.
“She needs more blood,” Donovan explained. “I can hear her heartbeat fading again.”
Lucas heard his brother-in-arms but couldn’t reconcile himself to what needed to be done.
“Lucas, listen to me,” Donovan raised his voice as he touched Lucas’s shoulder. “Since she’s a woman of the Magdalena Circle, our blood can sustain her through her injuries. I gave her a few drops of my blood while we were being held. Let me give her a few more.”
“No,” Lucas raised his voice to match Donovan and showed his sharp teeth, two actions he’d never before taken against one of his brothers-in-arms. Shame immediately rushed through him. “I apologize, Van, but no more. She will take from me alone.” Lucas knew the few drops Van had given her wouldn’t do any harm.
Since he wasn’t her natural mate, it had no effect aside from sustaining her health during her healing but he still couldn’t allow it.
Understanding swept over Donovan as he backed away and nodded. “You’ll need to at least give her a few drops until she’s well enough to feed fully.” Donovan pulled the curtain and left them alone.
Silence reigned over them as Lucas sat holding his mate, holding his hope in the future.

BOOK SPOTLIGHT: Bluebonnets for Elly @SandyNachlinger #MFRWauthor

MFRW Author Sandra Nachlinger released Bluebonnets for Elly, a Mainstream Contemporary Romance with Sweet Cravings Publishing in January 2014.

Reeling from betrayal by her fiancé, Elly Macauley leaves the skyscrapers of Dallas for Shannon Ridge, Texas, volunteering to help her grandmother recover from a broken ankle. She hopes her time in the small town will be the perfect opportunity for both she and Granny to recover from their wounds.

Landscaper Derek White maintains the grounds of Sunset Acres and looks after the senior citizens as if they were his own grandparents. But the disappearance of his wife eight years earlier has put his life and aspirations on hold. After one kiss from Elly Macauley, he wonders if it’s time to take another chance on love. But how can he explain an ex-wife who ran away? And is he sure he’s a free man?

When Derek’s past threatens and when Elly’s ex-fiancé reappears, she must decide—give her former love a second chance or gamble on a man whose history may ruin everything.

Reviews for Bluebonnets for Elly
""Fast, easy read with enough twists and turns to keep the reader engaged and waiting for the next shoe to drop. Beautifully well-written romance novel. The characters are well-developed and could be our neighbors. Highly recommend this book."" - ""Grandma Zona,"" Amazon

""I really enjoyed Elly and Derek's story. Both had wounds from previous relationships, and as the two of them started to trust each other, their pasts returned to complicate things. I enjoyed Granny - she sounds like the kind of woman I want to be. I got lots of enjoyable reading time with this book!"" - ""Patricia Gordon,"" Amazon
Excerpt
After dinner he'd taken Elly out to the lake to watch the sunset. Pink and orange rays filled the western sky until the sun slipped behind a dark cloud. He couldn’t have planned a more beautiful scene. With a sudden spring shower pattering the truck’s roof, Derek leaned back against the headrest, relaxed and at ease. Even when the conversation lagged, he felt no need to fill it with words, but instead, just enjoyed the sound the raindrops made and the presence of Elly beside him. In response to something she said, he gave her a quick hug, and when she put her hand on his thigh, he pulled her to him in an embrace.
   In response, she moved even closer and kissed him. In seconds, they were making out like kids at the drive-in movies. Impatient with the steering wheel in his way, he moved to the center of the seat and pulled Elly onto his lap, thankful that the old truck had a bench seat. She wrapped her arms around his neck, wiggled on his lap, and gave him a kiss that made him shiver and sizzle at the same time. When she tickled his ear with her tongue, he groaned, a surge of heat going straight from his brain to his groin.
   Does she have any idea how crazy she’s making me?
   We’d better slow down.
   But his body had other ideas.
   Derek shifted in the seat, his jeans uncomfortably tight. He turned Elly so that she lay in his arms and nibbled kisses from her ear down one side of her neck. He lingered at the neckline of her blouse.
   When he paused, she sat up, fingered the top button of his shirt, and unfastened it, her glittering eyes on his. Button by button, she opened the shirt to reveal his bare chest. He watched, unable to move, almost unable to breathe, letting her take the lead. She pushed her hands beneath the fabric and ran her fingers across his chest, stopping only to smile up at him. He gasped at the brush of her fingertips on his nipples.
   Damn.
   Still no words passed between them.
   With trembling fingers, he loosened the buttons down the front of her blouse. He paused when he neared the last one and looked into her eyes.
   Elly nodded and pulled the shirttail from her skirt.
   Derek pushed back the folds of cotton fabric. The sunset’s pink light revealed a bra that did little to conceal her breasts. Her taut nipples strained against the cups, as if begging for his touch. He covered them with his hands, teasing with his thumbs. She mimicked his movements on his nipples as well, bringing another groan.
   Damn.
   Mrs. Macaulay's granddaughter.
   Hot damn.
   He couldn’t remember the last time he’d been so turned on.
About Sandra Nachlinger
Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, I've been writing one thing or another since childhood. I wrote my first romantic story in elementary school. The heroine got a kiss as the happy ending. I still have diaries from my school days, one of which inspired I.O.U. SEX, my first book co-written with Sandra Allen.

I love to travel and keep journals of each trip. When not writing, I like to make quilts, sew, garden, take photos, lunch with friends, and (like Granny in BLUEBONNETS FOR ELLY) spend as much time as possible with my granddaughter.

EXCERPT
She was certain she’d done the right thing by encouraging him to find Donovan. There was not a doubt in her mind about that. Still, she feared for him. Gemma put on her big-girl panties and stood by him while Caedon and Madden went over mission objectives and details, much of it she didn’t understand. She held herself together and forced all her emotions down so as not to worry Seamus.
But before he left, Gemma needed Seamus to know he could count on her. She jumped up and wrapped her arms around his shoulders. “I am yours,” she spoke into his mind so others wouldn’t hear.
Seamus’ response was immediate as his lips crushed down on hers. This wasn’t the sweet kiss of earlier, and Gemma returned his intensity and encouraged him to pull her closer and deepen the kiss even further. Seamus grabbed her bottom and forced her to wrap her legs around his waist. The thought that she should be embarrassed in front of the others crossed her mind but it was only fleeting. Everything inside her focused on her mate.
Gemma did hear one of the men gasp however. She opened her eyes for just a moment and saw the colors of light. Seamus and her combined emotions caused bursts of sparkling light to swirl around them. Incredible joy pounded in her veins and she knew she loved this man. He felt right against her as his lips pressed against hers and his teeth nipped at her lower lip.
A cough from behind them broke their moment. Seamus squeezed his eyes closed before opening them, shaking his head and placing her down on the floor. With his hand around her waist, he looked to Nicolaus.
“I place my mate in your keeping.” Seamus spoke solemnly.
“I swear my oath to her safety,” Nicolaus dipped his head slightly and nodded once.
Seamus grabbed her face, his hands on either side, and placed his forehead against hers.
“I will be back as quickly as possible.”
“I will be right here waiting,” Gemma offered the only assurance she had to give.

Once claimed by her mate, she will covet nothing more for eternity, especially now that she has it all. Caedon plans to fulfill her every need if he can just keep her safe. With their secret so close to being exposed and a mate who finds herself in the midst of the drama, Caedon has enough to keep his hands full.

Then Caedon’s parents, believed dead for a century, come across the Terrorist Elimination Unit’s (TEU) radar. Can he save his parents while protecting his newfound mate?

Eloise needed time to herself for even just a few moments and found herself wandering the vineyard along a path moving away from the lights of the homes on the property. An isolated building stood beyond this hillside, set slightly lower and out of sight. Curious, Eloise wandered in that direction when a shadow moved towards her from the distance. It was the large shadow of a man, she could tell from the bulk of his shoulders, the marched step of long legs.

Not watching where she was going, Eloise caught her heel on something and fell to the ground. The shadow moved quickly towards her then at a nearly flashing speed. She knew then he was Breed.

“What are you doing out here?” the man’s deep voice vibrated through her body. He should’ve terrified her—he was Valendite Breed—but something in his voice lulled her frantic heartbeat. “Are you all right?” He squatted down next to her, his hand landing on her shoulder when she tried to stand.

Suddenly frozen in place, unsure whether to move towards this man or away, Eloise felt paralyzed. A fluttering centered in her chest. Should she insist he remove his hand? He was even larger now so close to her. His scent was amazingly crisp and warm. Drinking in her fill, she shifted her focus to his hands fisted in tension. The muscles in his neck and arms appeared tense, taut, and delicious. Clearly, he was holding himself back. And if this was him restraining himself, she so wanted to see him unrestrained.

“I need to stand up. I just tripped on something.” Eloise attempted to stand, but again his hand on her shoulder restrained her. Her eyes scanned upwards, perused his deeply tanned skin.

Eloise wanted to reach out and touch him. She placed her hand over his fingers still resting on her shoulder. They were so warm, strong and large. Eloise followed the landscape of his arm until her hand wrapped around his bicep and she marveled at how small she seemed beside him. His shoulders were solid and the corded muscles beneath his worn t-shirt were flexing. His low-slung jeans showed a peak of his happy trail and left her wondering just what she would find if she went walking down that path.

“Damn it. Your eyes, they’re lit up. And your scent…who are you?” The man lowered his voice at the question but she heard it deep inside. He didn’t just want her name. He suspected what she was coming to wonder herself but had dismissed as wishful thinking. He couldn’t possibly be her mate, could he?

“Do you speak, woman?” The man was growling; his sculpted cheekbones hollowed even further to give him a sharper appearance, but he didn’t scare her. Eloise didn’t move away; she wanted the connection to him as deeply as she needed her next breath.

“My name is Eloise. I’m one of Layla’s sisters.”

Where’s your favorite place to hang out online? (From the list above.)
Facebook!

Tell us about your latest book, including its genre. Does it cross over to other genres? If so, what are they?
Lustful Cravings is the first book in the Seven Sin Sisters, a seven-part paranormal romance series. The first book focuses on the youngest sister, Layla. She’s also the sister least likely interested in fulfilling her destiny as a woman of the Magdalena Circle. Layla’s sin is lust so she’s not experienced the sensations until the moment she locks eyes with her mate – just as the prophecy states. Mating with Madden, and her Tre Adoro, makes this book a delicious ménage read as well.

What can we expect from you in the future?
The Seven Sin Sisters will be published over the next year with the final book coming in August 2013. I also have a contemporary romance book, Coming Home, releasing in November 2012. And don’t even get me started on all my WIPs!

How do we find out about you and your books?
My blog is the perfect place to stay up-to-date.

How many readers/fans contact you?
Use any of my contact links – follow me – friend me – like me – fan me.

Why did you decide to write romance novels?
I love to read – always have – to escape from the reality of life. As an introvert, the escape is a re-charge for me so I select books that are happy (or at least have that happy ending). Most of the time, I was reading romance. It was only natural when I decided to write for publication that I chose romance.

How much of your personality and life experiences are in your writing?
*cringe* This is that question my husband dreads getting from his friends. Of course, it’s usually followed up with a manly shoulder bump and a wink. So let’s put the kinky stuff aside and just say that the themes of what I write are familiar to me.

Generally, how long does it take you to write a book?
Every book is different and I can simultaneously be working on up to two manuscripts at a time, all in various stages. I always seem to be in a state of revision so a definitive answer is impossible. The shortest time was a single month (for a first draft) and the longest was three years.

Do you have a set schedule for writing or do you just go with the flow?
I write 5 days/ week. Sometimes I have to work to a deadline and that takes priority but in the best moments, I am following the character’s urgings. Whichever character is loudest in my head that day gets my attention. Fighting your personal thread of creativity is only one step short of insanity. I allow my characters to lead.

Now that I write full-time, I have to guard my time. I usually use the first hour of my day (after boys are at school and I’ve had my first cup of coffee) to check in on business. Then I write until the boys come home. Sometimes I take a lunch break but most days, I eat a kashi bar and keep going.

What is your writing routine once you start a book? Where do you start when writing? Research, plotting, outline, or...?
After I plot my story lines, I sit down with a bottle of wine and my two beta readers. They give me their take on it and I make changes that work for me. Then I begin any research important to the themes. A lot of the time, I’m creating a photo board (Pinterest is great for this) with photos to inspire scenes and characters as well. Then I draft – without an outline – and I do not necessarily write the book in order because it’s all about letting the characters guide me. After draft one, I edit and send it off to my beta readers. When I get it back and we’ve shared another bottle of wine, I do one more sets of edits before the book is off to my editor.

How do you come up with ideas?
My story ideas come from my observations. You know that saying about being careful because you could end up in a book? Yep, that is so true. I gather ideas for stories in a little net as I wander through life. I’m always looking for an inspiring message to serve as a foundation for the book. And as crazy as this might sound coming from an erotic romance author, my strong background in religion provides me with great ideas to incorporate (like the significance of Mary Magdalene in the Seven Sin Sisters series).

What are your thoughts on love scenes in romance novels? Do you find them difficult to write?
If it makes sense to the natural flow of the book, it shouldn’t be difficult to write. If I am ever struggling with a *sex* scene, I take a step back and question if it belongs. Sometimes, sorry to say, too much sex is not a good thing in a romance.

What kind of research do you do?
Most of my research is done on-line or using non-fiction books. I try to use themes I am already familiar with to make it easier to convey an ease with the topic. For the Seven Sin Sisters, my research was on the Italian Wars from the 1500s, Italian language and architecture. I chose Italian from my own heritage since it just made it easier and was already an interest of mine. For another WIP, I’ve friended some people on-line to answer questions for me. Personal knowledge can go a long way in creating believable characters.

How long have you been writing - have you always wanted to be a writer?
I’ve been writing since high school and always wanted to be an author. When I went to college, I was talked into getting a degree that would get me a real job and my writing was set aside. When my parents were cleaning out their house years later, my mother sent me an old box. It contained all the writing I’d done in high school. Reading through those stories inspired me to start again. I was staying at home by then to raise my family and the boys were all now in school so it was the perfect time for me to focus on my dream.

What is the single most important part of writing for you?
Releasing everything inside of me. There’s a lot there that goes unsaid, so many characters that I develop that need a home on paper, so many thoughts an introvert like me would never say but can write.

Ocean or mountains? MOUNTAINS WITH LAKES
City life or country life? COUNTRY
Hunky heroes or average Joe? HUNKY HEROES
Party life or quiet dinner for two? DINNER FOR TWO

When I'm alone, I READ.
I'm always ready for DESSERT *wink*.

Dessert… ICE CREAM.
City... PORTLAND, ME.
Season… SUMMER.
Type of hero… ALPHA.
Type of heroine… SUBMISSIVE (and that doesn’t mean weak).

Seven sisters are entwined in a legacy bigger than anyone ever expected. One by one, they will find their mates from the immortal Valendite breeds and secure their place in history. Each sister embodies one of the seven deadly sins only to be cast aside once claimed. But claiming comes at the price of separation, causing a weakening of their combined powers, which none want to happen... until Layla, holding the sin of lust within her body, locks eyes with Madden.

Madden is one of the strongest of the Valendite Breed, a group of near-immortal men originating from the Italian Wars in the 1500s. Today, the Valendite Breed serve as the Terrorist Elimination Unit (TEU), an invisible arm of the CIA. Their only weakness is their need for a mate to carry on the Breed.  So now that Madden has found Layla, he will never let her go.

With forces mounting up against the Breed, Madden and Layla will need to rely on all of their powers combined to get them to their Pronouncement.

Madden pulled away from her, just slightly, and she whimpered in protest. He chuckled and kissed her nose when he saw her wrinkle it. Struck by the flush of her cheeks, Madden noted the same flush running down her throat and to the very top of her breasts. As she took deep breaths to calm herself, he placed his forehead against hers. But Madden only paused for a moment because he had no intention of letting the emotions he was pulling from Layla subside. He would not let her gain the control she was wrestling for. A woman off-balance was what he needed her to be.

As part of the Valendite Breed, Madden had been raised to know the prophecy, to appreciate the significance of finding your mate and claiming her. He planned to worship Layla until the day they died. The sharing of blood so sacred, nothing could tear them from one another. Not only would their blood bond them together but it would also sustain Madden and prolong Layla’s life so she lived as long as he did.

Madden moved his hands to frame her face and drew her head up to meet her eyes. He brushed a soft kiss against her full lips before speaking, his voice husky with desire. “Take your tongue, Layla love, and touch it to my sharpest teeth. The blood exchange will bind us and I can take you then. Ho bisogno di te. Please don’t make me wait.”

Madden’s words were barely finished when he took her mouth again. Gently his tongue drew hers out, slowing to let her catch up to his need. When he felt the puncture wounds and tasted the first drop of her blood, he moaned low inside himself. He felt Layla tense at first and then soften her body as it settled into his own. Her moans began to mirror his. He could feel her desire as if it was his own, and it multiplied the urge to claim her and demand she submit to him as his mate.

Madden held back with every piece of control he had been trained to possess. This moment required him to remain in control, to ease her in the mating. He felt her pull away. Her body shuttered and a small whimper bubbled up from her throat. He was suddenly struck by her vulnerability.

“What’s happened, Madden? Why do I feel this way?” His Layla was frightened and he wanted nothing more than to comfort her. Her feisty golden eyes now appeared panicked. Madden couldn’t bear it.

“Layla love, we’re bonded now. You will forever feel what I feel just as I will feel the emotions inside of you. It is a powerful thing for mates. It will make the next act we perform even richer than any romance book you’ve ever read.” He rose then from the floor between her legs and pulled her to him, carrying her out of the room.

“Which way to your bedroom, Layla?”
