Hey all, this is my new cover for Destined to Mate, Coming Soon with The Wild Rose Press - Scarlet Line.
That's right, I'm now a Wilder Rose. *Grins*
I'm going to toss up the blurb and a teaser for you to wet the appetite.
A feline mated to a werewolf?
As a Chimera, half lioness/half human, Alexis Xanthis, has never released the beast within. Until she meets Lykan Alpha, Morgan LeVey. Being near him triggers a powerful need to mate, but is Morgan strong enough to dominate her feline side and still handle the human half with a gentle hand? And will the powers that be allow it?
This Excerpt has only been edited by my little eyes so far. An editor is grabbing it up next, so forgive any inconsistancies.
Alexis gasped as her eyes flew open. Sitting up, she looked around, eyes wide and then remembered why she passed out. Lifting her hands, they had clean white gauze wrapped around them, her gaze took in the elegantly decorated room. Defiantly masculine, decorated in deep rich colors of reds, purples and blues. As she noticed the velvet drapes, her hand ran over the silk comforter, realizing she wore only her bra and underwear. When the wood door opened, she jumped, pulling the comforter up just as the dark haired man who helped her walked in. “Where am I?”
“My house,” Morgan answered as he stepped forward. “Not to fond of blood are you?”
“Only the sight of mine,” Alexis replied, her pussy muscles contracted with lust as his dark eyebrow shot up. “Um, may I have my clothes please?” Uneasy with the way her body reacted to this man so quick.
“They’re being cleaned. Where were you coming from?”
“I was visiting my grandfather.” Alexis figured she’d give him as close to the truth as she could so she wouldn’t have to remember any fibs.
“Didn’t he ever teach you not to walk in the park at night?”
“It was just becoming dark, and my home is only on the other side of it.”
“That doesn’t keep the criminals from leaving you alone.”
“I’d like my clothes please.”
“When they’re done.”
Alexis didn’t know what to think of this guy as she gripped the comforter to her chest. He seemed to be in no rush to get rid of her. “I, um, I have to get going,” she whispered, his nostrils flared the same time the front of his black jeans became tight with his erection. And, what an erection, as she whipped her gaze away, assuming he had somehow caught scent of her arousal. How was that possible, unless he wasn’t human.
“To where, Alexis Xanthis?” Morgan asked as her gaze lifted.
Alexis gulped when he put his hands behind his back, and stood there, feet braced apart, gaze intently on her, to masculine, and too sexy. She’d been without a man for way too long. “How do you know my name?” his long black hair moved with him. Not only were his eyes the greenest she’d ever seen, but his pheromones were interestingly strong.
“Your license was in your jeans pocket.”
“Oh,” Alexis breathed.
“Alexis the Fair, quite the surname you have sweet, old Greek if I’m correct.”
“Very,” Her stomach clenching as her eyes started to change. Oh shit, quick to lower them, her chest rose rapidly, with her increased breathing, barely controlling the transformation. I don’t need this now, she screamed in her head, but the pain only got worse. “Bathroom?” She squeaked as she tossed the cover aside.
“Through there,” Pointing to a door, the scent of a change heavy in the room. “Are you all right?” He asked as she stumbled out of his rumpled bed, tripping over her feet, and staggered into the bathroom.
Hope you enjoyed that little tease. *wink*
