Forbes and Harris were late. She had already set out training manuals, turned on the projector, and loaded her files on her laptop. She was ready to go and she hated tardiness. Sawney sat down at her desk and took a sip of her lukewarm coffee. Maybe she would have time to nip to the break room and grab another one.
“Sawney,” Blair said, walking into the room. “I’d like you to meet Forbes and Harris McBride.”
Sawney looked at the two large men who followed Blair into the room, and she could have sworn her jaw dropped. She didn’t know who to look at first. They were tall, solid, and brutish, and Sawney felt her body spring to life for the first time in years.
“Hi, I’m Forbes.” He shook her hand and she felt a buzz. She pulled her hand back as if she had been bitten. Forbes towered over her, and she loved his height. Sawney was short at five foot three and only came to Forbes’s chest. His muscles strained against his tight Highland Rescue T-shirt and his thick thighs filled out his navy cargo pants. He had dark brown hair and deep chocolate-colored eyes. His firm jaw was shaded with stubble and gave him a roguish appearance.
“Sawney,” she replied shyly, still stunned by her reaction to the men.
“Harris,” the other man said. “Pleasure to meet you.”
Harris held out his hand and Sawney looked at it as though it was a snake ready to strike. She hesitantly reached out and gently grasped it with her own. Her hand tingled and pleasure shot through her body. Sawney ripped her hand back and wiped it on the ass of her pants, trying to wipe away the sensations running riot through her.
“Nice to meet you, too,” she replied, simply being polite, but feeling nothing but confusion and an unwanted need to climb the tall men like trees.
Harris moved closer and she heard him inhale. His chest rumbled and he growled. Sawney moved to put the desk between them, distancing herself from the two shifters.
Harris was every bit as big and muscular as his brother. Yet, where Forbes was dark, Harris was light. His light brown, almost red hair, shone in the light as he stared down at her with his soulful honey-colored eyes. His nose had a small crook in it. Sawney wondered if it was natural or a result of having it broken. He had a large scar that ran along his chin, and when he smiled at her, his eyes crinkled in the corners.
“Well,” Blair said, turning to the brothers and shaking their hands. “I will leave you in Sawney’s capable hands. Come see me if you need anything. Otherwise, welcome to the team.”
“Thanks,” Forbes replied. “It’s a pleasure to be here.”
“More than we realized,” Harris added cryptically, though Sawney guessed she was what he was referring to.
Sawney watched Blair walk out of the room and frowned. She didn’t want to be left alone with these men. She knew exactly what they were and she didn’t want any part of it. Why fate would do such a cruel thing to her was beyond her. She wasn’t ready and probably never would be. What was worse, it wasn’t just one of them; it was both of them. It was too much for her to handle. She couldn’t even say the words let alone think them.
“Alone at last,” Harris said.
“At last?” she snapped. “You have only been here a couple of minutes, and even then you were late.”
“Oh,” Forbes said, “our mate is feisty.”
Sawney’s head snapped to Forbes and she glared at him.
“Do not say that,” she told him. “I am not your mate and never will be.”
“Honey,” Forbes replied, “whether you like it or not, fate has made us your rightful mates. You can’t deny it. I know you sensed it when we came in the room just as much as we did.”
“I sense no such thing,” Sawney said. She was lying, but she refused to admit the truth. Not to herself and definitely not to these men.
“Now,” Forbes said, “that’s just not true. I can smell how we affect you.”
Sawney sucked in a breath and resisted the urge to slap Forbes across the face.
“That is crass and extremely insensitive,” she told him. “This is a work environment and I’m a professional. You’ll act with decorum in my training room.”
“Or what, honey?” he asked, arching a dark eyebrow at her.
“I will just have to take you through my three-hour sexual harassment in the workplace course. It is very boring and has a huge test at the end.”
Harris chuckled and made his way around her desk.
“I’d love to spend three hours with you discussing sex,” he said. “Alone in a quiet room, no one else about.”
Sawney edged away from Harris but found herself getting closer and closer to Forbes, who was making his way around her other side. She was going to be stuck in the middle of them, sandwiched between their big masculine bodies. She could already smell their deep, earthy smell. It reminded her of the outdoors, woody and fresh.
“That’s usually what alone means,” she told him.
Harris and Forbes were closing in and Sawney’s body was more than aware of their close proximity. They left her only one course of action. Sawney leaped over her desk, placing her hands on the wood and flinging her legs over.
“Sex is the last thing we will be talking about,” she said. Sawney raised her hand and cut off whatever Harris was about to say. “Nor will we be having it.”
Forbes crossed his massive arms across his chest and looked at her with a frown on his rugged face.
“What is your objection?” he asked.
“With sex,” she replied, “or you in general?”
Forbes watched as Harris devoured their mate’s mouth. He couldn’t help but be turned on by the passion that Sawney was displaying. She was a sensual woman, and he knew the next few minutes were going to be some of the best of his life.
He still had his doubts, no matter how much he wanted to make love to her. He could tell that she was still confused and using them now as a cushion for her pain and loneliness. He wanted to call a halt to the whole thing and take her somewhere to talk, but he equally wanted to show her what mating them could be like.
Forbes made a decision and shoved his brother out of the way. He wanted to kiss Sawney and he was sick of waiting. She looked flushed and dazed, while Harris looked smug and proud of his efforts.
Forbes stepped between her legs and placed his hands on her rear. Sawney squealed when he pulled her forward and her pants-covered pussy rammed up against his hard length. He fisted her hair gently and tipped her head back, before lowering his mouth. He caught her lips on a gasp and moaned as her sweet natural flavor hit his mouth.
He whipped her T-shirt over her head and went straight back to making love to her mouth with his own. Forbes rubbed his arms up and down her back, feeling her soft skin under his roughened palms. He used one hand to flick her bra open and dragged it down her arms, before flinging it the way of her T-shirt.
“Fuck, baby,” Harris said. “You have a gorgeous body.”
“You haven’t seen all of it yet,” Forbes replied, breaking the kiss and looking down his mate’s body. “I’m sure it gets better.”
“Let’s get these pants off then,” Harris said, shoving Forbes out of the way and reaching for her button.
“Lay back, honey,” Forbes told her. “Get comfortable.”
“As comfortable as one can be on a desk,” she replied.
Was she complaining because she didn’t want to have sex on a desk? Should they wait until they could get her on a soft bed? Maybe they were rushing and not being thoughtful to her needs? Forbes looked at her face and tried to decide whether or not they should continue, but all he could see was need and acceptance. She wanted this as much as they did.
“We will take care of you,” Harris said, unbuttoning her trousers and pulling them down her legs. Forbes groaned as her sexy white panties were revealed.
Harris removed her boots and socks, and then pulled her pants all the way off. Forbes nudged Harris over and grabbed the sides of Sawney’s panties. With one big tug, he ripped them from her body and slipped the ruined material into his pocket.
Sawney cried out, but it was more in shock than pain. Gazing down at her bare flesh, Forbes didn’t think he could get any harder. He was proven wrong when Sawney opened her thighs and exposed her naked flesh to their scrutiny.
Fuck, her body was amazing. Her pussy was pink and wet, and gorgeous. His mouth watered at the sight and he wanted a taste. Dropping to his knees, he placed his hands on her thighs and moved them farther apart to make room for his wide shoulders.
He wasted no time swiping his tongue through her wet heat and tasting her for the first time. Musky and exotic, Sawney tasted like heaven. Her pussy was soft and supple, and fucking amazing.
She moaned when he placed one finger at her tight entrance and slowly pushed into her channel. Hot heat surrounded his finger, drawing him in and he almost came in his pants.
He licked her little clit and sucked it into his mouth, while moving his finger in and out in rhythm. It wasn’t long before Sawney was groaning and gently shifting her hips beneath him.
“Please,” she said, “don’t stop.”
Forbes didn’t have any intention of stopping until he heard her scream with release. He worked his finger harder inside her and sucked her little bud into his mouth before gently biting down. It was all it took. Sawney cried out, as her orgasm washed over her. Her pussy clamped down on his finger and she pushed her hips up towards his mouth.
“Fuck, that was hot,” Harris said.
Forbes lifted his head and stood. He couldn’t wait anymore and ripped open his trousers, freeing his hard throbbing erection.
“Say yes, honey,” he said. “Please, say yes?”
“Yes,” Sawney replied. “Totally yes.”
Forbes sighed in relief and lined his length up with her entrance. He gently pushed into her tight heat and was instantly surrounded by her scorching muscles which clamped down on his erection, making it hard to move.
When he was all the way inside her, Forbes froze. It was like coming home and he knew that nothing and no one could ever compete with the feeling of being deep inside his mate.
