In this snippet, Drake has come to Aliandra's home to apologize for his rude behavior at the library with flowers. He almost screws it up and she's fixin' to make him leave. But then he tells her what he wants. She's the first one to speak.
“So you desire to feed from and make love with me, Drake?”
“More than I’ve wanted to from anyone ever before.” Truth rang in his voice as much as through his gut. He’d wanted Aliandra for years, but his secrets and his guilt held him back until now. Her offer had caught him off-guard, but the lure of her charms proved too tempting to resist.
“Good. As long as we’re clear.” She pushed up on her toes and brushed her lips over his.
Lust and yearning blasted through him, taking much of his control. He moaned and leaned in closer, tasting her lips. Flavors of the meal they’d eaten and her own spicy chocolate mixed as she thrust her tongue into his mouth, and his cock swelled in arousal. Damn, this woman isn’t shy about what she wants. The revelation came with a dose of pleasure so strong, he growled.
She growled back at him and wrapped her arms around his back, pulling him so close her breasts flattened against his chest.
Aliandra doesn't waste time being coy. ;) There are several great authors on the Weekend Writer Warriors list and in the Snippet Sunday Facebook group. A few of my favorites are Charley Descoteaux, Jeff Tsuruoka, Gem Sivad, Goran Zidar, Veronica Scott, and Sarah Wesson. Here's the blurb for Order of the Dragon:
Drake MacGregor always adhered to the adage ‘let sleeping dragons lie’, until he slept with one.
In an effort to make up for his past as Vlad the Impaler, Drake has been living a small, quiet life in Three Lakes. As the town’s archivist, his knowledge of history and his place in it weigh on him. Drake has one desire—to rectify the atrocities committed in the name of his knightly order. Too bad he can’t keep his hands, or his fangs, off the local doctor, especially when he discovers she’s an actual dragon.
Aliandra Cantora del Viento is old enough and wise enough to ignore her attraction to the handsome historian, especially when her heart suggests he might be something more than he appears. Drake stokes her fires and curls her tail, and after a hot night in her clinic, the game is on. But he avoids her and nothing she tries breaks through his reserve, despite his obvious interest. He turns her on then apologizes for it, repeatedly. Not exactly the kind of relationship she’d hoped for yet she can’t walk away.
When a mysterious researcher arrives with his son, Drake becomes more edgy and irritable, and Aliandra must decide if she’s willing to fight for him. Especially when he might be her True Mate.
