Jade knew she’d be dead within the next few minutes and thought about all the life she'd never get to experience. When she wakes in the arms of a stranger, her first emotion is unbridled fear, but the feeling of contentment quickly follows, confusing her.
Jacob’s time on earth was about done. He’d come to grips with it a long time ago, but it was hard for him to take the pain that slowly got worse as the weeks passed.
One moment in time changes their lives. He finally found the one person he wanted most—his mate. The only problem was keeping her safe from the person who wanted to make her pay.
The first book in the CARNAL LUST series can be found in the ALPHA MALE anthology.
Be Warned: anal sex
“Hey,” Jacob said and got her attention. He pulled her into his arms and against his hard chest. “Do you want to explore or have me care for you first?”
“Me, first.” The fire inside her grew stronger every hour as she healed from the attack, and it was becoming excruciating.
He lifted her into his arms, walked into their bedroom, and sat her on the bed. She was curious about the room, but right now, it would take an earthquake to get her attention away from Jacob.
He stripped them both and then came down beside her.
“What, Mate?” he said.
“I need you.”
He pressed his lips to hers. “I know. I’ll take care of you.”
“But I need the whole thing.”
“You’ve been injured…”
“Yes, but I feel so much better. I think I’d feel even better if we mated the way you’ve talked about and how we’re supposed to.”
He studied her before he nodded. “I’ll fuck you how I need to, but I’ll be watching. We’ll stop if you cringe or I sense you’re in pain.”
“But that will hurt us both.”
He sighed. “Let’s try.”
“Okay.” She wrapped her arms around his neck and pulled him down for another kiss. This time it deepened and rapidly got more intense until they couldn’t seem to get close enough.
She could hear herself whimper.
His lips slid down her neck and stopped where her shoulders met her neck, and he started to nibble before he moved on.
When he sucked her tits, it felt like the sensation zipped straight to her clit, making it throb even more. She was so delirious that when he pushed her legs apart and settled in-between them, it took her a moment to understand what he was doing. The first swipe of his tongue on her clit made a scream tear from her throat.
“God, Jacob. No, please, I need you.” She tried to pull him up, but it was like pulling a tree.
“I want to make sure you’re ready,” he said.
She jerked when he thrust one of his blunt-tipped fingers into her cunt. Her hands gripped the blanket on either side of her hips so hard her fingers ached.
He must have sensed her desperation when she wouldn’t stop begging because he finally came over to her, lined his cock up to her cunt, and rammed every inch into her.
Her body bowed off the mattress, and a scream tore from her throat. He froze for a moment.
She tried to move her legs. “Why did you stop?”
“I want to make sure I didn’t hurt you.”
“You didn’t. Now, please fuck me.”
He smiled down at her, and she thought it was the most beautiful thing she’d ever seen.
Her thoughts quickly scattered as he started to power into her. She had no idea how long they were at it but could finally feel herself start unraveling.
“That’s it, Mate. Come for me,” Jacob said.
White lights flashed in her vision as her body convulsed under him in the most intense orgasm she had ever had. Her whole body seemed to shake as her orgasm crested, and then she started to come down from it. Her toes and fingertips were left numb and tingly when her body lost its will to stay conscious.
She heard him groan and then nothing as she passed out, knowing he’d care for her.
