Christian Shaw, Beta of the Snow Water Lycans, never thought he would meet his mate. He certainly didn’t think he would turn into a lovesick fool just as his Alpha had. But his mind changed when Cassidy LeBeau walked his way, looking for help after being stranded just outside of town
Cas entered the bar looking for assistance but who she finds changes the course of her life. She is the mate of a Lycan. Her world was turned upside down at seventeen when she was taken from her family, and her friends imprisoned by a man who only wanted to own her. Now she lives under a false identity.
Can Christian convince his mate to become his when she is hiding from the man who took her? A man who wants to own her. A villain who has vowed to eliminate anyone, or anything, that would keep him from possessing her.
Could Cas risk her heart and Christian’s life?
Christian leaned against the cinder block wall at the back of the bar, his cue stick held loosely between his fingers as he watched his pack mates play a game of pool. He was so bored, but this was his week to be in charge of the security for the bar. He smirked, looking out over the people but not really seeing anybody.
Usually his Alpha, Lucien, would be here with him but since he found his mate Elise, he stayed pretty much at home. He frowned when he thought about what his Alpha, one of his best friends, went through when she was kidnapped. The human who took El was obsessed with her. If it wasn’t for her friend, Dawn, who saw him take her and followed him, things might had turned out differently.
He glanced up at the track lighting across the ceiling and grinned when he thought about Dawn along with her mate Julien, who were both cougar shifters and were now official members of his pack. Christian was shocked to find out she had been in their territory for years and they never suspected her of being anything but human. They first found out about her being in their territory when she saved two of their young females from being taken by human kidnappers. She attacked them and chased them away. But she risked everything when she revealed herself to Lucian to help her save Elise. He would always be in debt to her for the unselfish act of courage to save his best friend’s mate.
His nose twitched when a faint scent of peaches and cream tickled his senses as his attention turned back to the bar. His forehead wrinkled as he glanced around, searching for the source of that scent. He took a deep breath then exhaled in an impatient huff when he could not smell the sweet fragrance again. Christian shook his head, grimaced then after a moment he shrugged. “Must have imagined it,” he thought.
“Hey, Beta, you’re up,” Henry, one of his packmates that were playing pool, said to him.
“So, you finally won one, I take it,” Christian asked as he shoved off from the wall with his cue stick gripped in his hand. One of the others racked up the balls as he flipped a coin with Henry beside him to see who would go first.
“You won the toss, Beta, your break.” He nodded, walking around the table to see all the angles. Suddenly, Christian’s head jerked back and he stumbled, knocking against the side of the pool table when the scent of peaches and cream hit his senses.
“Beta, are you okay?” one member of his pack asked.
The question went unnoticed by him, his eyes glued to the woman who came up the steps. He swallowed hard as he took note of her rich, deep radiant tawny brown skin with reddish streaks in her thick brown hair, highlighted by the ceiling lights, pulled back in a ponytail. But it was her shadowy pale brown eyes that made his breath hitch as he gazed into them.
His eyes never left her as she stopped on the other side of the table. He thought his heart would fly out of his chest when she gave him a hesitant smile. He didn’t realize his claws were out until he felt a sharp pinch on one of his fingers. He looked down to see his nails embedded deep in the dark wood. He impatiently forced his nails out of the side of the pool table. His head jolted up when he heard a stifled gasp.
Her eyes were wide as she stared at his hands. “Uh, are you all right?” Christian didn’t think his heart could beat any faster as he stared at her, not moving a muscle as her voice drifted over him.
“Beta,” Henry called to him. He saw her take a small step back when a low growl emitted from him.
“Hey, Christian, buddy, what has your panties in a bunch?” Dom asked as he made his way over to his friend. A collective sigh of relief seemed to fill the back room when he appeared and stood next to the Beta.
“It started when she came,” Henry said as he put his pool cue away and started down the steps. Dom motioned to the others to follow Henry.
He crossed his arms over his chest as he stared at the woman. “Now that we are alone, exactly who are you, miss?”
“Uh, well, I, uh…” She cleared her throat and began again. “My, uh, truck broke down and the lady said to talk to him about a tow,” Cas explained, her eyes moving to look at one then the other as she took a step back.
Christian let out a snarl when he saw her take a step back after she answered his friend’s question. Dom’s head turned toward him, a frown marring his face as he looked at his Beta.
“Man, what the hell is wrong with you?”
Cas lay exposed to him then. Her hands went instinctively to cover her breasts to shield herself from him until she saw him looking at her as if he wanted to memorize every inch of her body. Heat suffused her and she reached for him. He fell to one side and pulled her with him. Her gaze focused on him as he placed her legs on either side of his hips then sat her up. Cas felt his thick cock pressed against her, but it was the ache between her legs that captured her attention.
The throb intensified when she made a small movement with her hips. Moisture saturated her panties, ran down her leg. She tried to move again to ease the burn, but it only deepened the pulsating ache. Cas trembled when Christian placed his hand against her soaked panties. Her hips rubbed against him, her body naturally understood the craving and what it needed. His hands grabbed her hips and gyrated them against his cock. Cassidy gasped while she supported herself with her hands on his chest.
She gazed at him from under lowered lashes. She silently gasped under his intense stare. He leaned up to capture one of her breasts. Cassidy moaned, trembled as heat suffused her body when his hot mouth sucked her nipple as his tongue swirled around her stiff bud. She continued to rub against his cock as her need for him grew.
Before she could realize what was happening, he had flipped her onto her back, devouring her breasts. She plunged her hands into his blond hair and moaned as one hand cupped a breast while his tongue played with the hardened nipple. Her back arched, her hips stroked against the leg he positioned between hers as Cas tried to find some relief from the sensations that coursed through her body.
Christian suddenly rose to his knees, a cheeky smile on his face as he placed his hands on either side of her hips then bent down to kiss her navel. Her stomach quavered at his touch. She panted, causing her breast to rise and fall rapidly. She licked her dry lips as he rose up and nipped her neck from her collarbone to her ear. Her body tingled with each lick of his burning tongue. In her sensual haze, Cas felt his hands roaming her body, but overlooked their path over her when his mouth trailed kisses down her body. The kisses varied from playful, light nibbles to his tongue swirling on her heated skin.
He kissed down each leg, paying careful attention to the sensitive skin of her inner thighs before he turned her over to lay her on her stomach and began the pleasing taunt from the base of her spine to her neck. While his mouth teased the delicate skin of her shoulders, his hands caressed her hips and buttocks. Christian turned to the side with Cassidy’s back to his chest, thus he had access to her entire body. While one hand massaged her breast and pinched a nipple, the other dipped down to her pussy, parted her folds and felt her cream as it smeared his fingers. He slid her legs apart, raised one leg, put it on top of his and placed his hand against her core.
Cas moaned and pushed against his hand. He took her earlobe in his mouth and gently sucked. Christian gently passed his hand over her clit. Her body jerked as she cried out. She was close to climax when he slipped a finger inside of her, squeezed her nipple as he began to move his finger in and out of her. Cas whimpered and groaned in her need for release. Only seconds passed before her hips pumped in rhythm with his fingers. His thumb rubbed her clit, moments later her muscles clenched around his fingers.
Cassidy erupted with her first climax, her mind in a sensual haze as the erotic flame of release flowed through her.
* * * *
Christian seized the chance to invade her mouth with scorching licks and confident strokes when her lips parted as she gasped. The taste of her intoxicated him, engulfed his senses, fed his lust. He took the kiss deeper, swallowed her moan as it left her throat.
He held Cassidy in his arms as she came moments, mere seconds later. Her body arched, shuddered with every spasm. After the final tremor, her body became lax in his arms. His heated gaze roamed over her. The feel of her tight, wet pussy as her inner walls clenched around his fingers made his cock so hard, he could pound stone with it. His lycan growled at the chains of restraint, hammered against the wall of his control to be let free.
He dragged a finger over her parted lips, soft and plump from his kisses. Christian lowered his head, brushed his mouth where his finger had been. With concentrated effort he pulled his lips from hers and leaned his forehead against her as he dragged in gulps of air. He drew away from her as she looked at him from under lowered lashes.
“We need to stop,” Christian rasped out in a hoarse voice. His thumb caressed her cheek.
“Why?” Her voice was barely above a whisper.
“Because the first time I sink my cock into you it will not be on a blanket in the woods. The second or third time, maybe, but not the first.”
Her eyes widened at his comment.
“When you come apart in my arms, it will be in my bed.” His thumb traced the line of her jaw, tilted her head up as his lips brushed against her ear.
“Next time I won’t stop, I’ll be buried deep inside your tight pussy,” he breathed against her ear.
