Today I'm offering snippets from my newest release The Order of the Dragon, an paranormal romance, and Book 1 in the Warbler Peninsula series. Drake MacGregor hasn't fed in several days and now he's broken his leg. He's in pain and now he's alone with Dr. Aliandra Cantora, the one woman he's lusted after for months. Normally, it would be fine, but he's so hungry...
Dr. Cantora wheeled him into the X-ray room and turned on a light in the corner.
“It’ll take a moment to warm up. Please remove your pants so we can take an accurate X-ray to see the damage.”
Drake gaped. “You want me to take off my pants?”
He’d never be able to hide his erection then.
She strode out of the room and he cursed under his breath. This day couldn’t get any worse, unless he jumped Dr. Cantora and fucked her while he fed.
His inner beast cheered the idea.
Drake levered himself up to his one foot using the bench bed to keep him stable then balanced while he fiddled with his fly. His cock throbbed with arousal from the doctor’s lingering scent and each brush of his fingers against the aching length eroded his grip on his inner beast.
He lost his balance as his hands shook from lack of fuel and he swore, fumbling with his zipper as he toppled against the bench. He released his pants to catch himself and they slid off his hips to tangle his ankles. With a cry of frustrated dismay, he collapsed to the side, unable to stop his fall.
Fuck, I’m so completely useless.
Expecting the impact with the floor, he closed his eyes and completely relaxed his body…And landed against something warm, soft, and spicy-scented.
“I’ve got you, Mr. MacGregor. You seem to be having a little trouble. Are you certain nothing other than your leg is broken?”
Drake wanted to answer, but the scent of her body so near to his nose and the blood under the silken skin of her throat destroyed his coherency. He wrapped his arms around her, throwing his weight against her chest, and nestled his nose at the base of her throat. Before his mind could stop his hunger, he’d driven his canines into her neck and filled his mouth with her sumptuous blood.
Two things registered to his hunger-fogged brain. The first was the unbelievable richness of her blood, richer than any blood he’d ever tasted. It filled his mouth like the legendary elixir of life and warmed his body from the inside out.
The second thing was a terrible snarl echoing through the room just before Dr. Cantora flung him bodily over the medical bench to crash into the metal shelves filled with lead aprons.
Drake opened his eyes to stare up at the woman towering over him, her eyes blazing with iridescent green fire as she held her neck with one taloned hand. Her canines showed clearly as she bared her teeth at him.
“What in the name of all that’s holy do you think you’re doing?”
