“Okay.” Blue sighed, scrubbed a hand over his face, and then met her gaze before he began talking again. “What did you and Jenny discuss?”
“Nothing really.” Mel settled back on the sofa and crossed her arms beneath her breasts. “She did ask me if I believed in mythological creatures and whether I thought werewolves could exist.”
“And what was your answer?” Blue asked.
“I didn’t give one.”
“Shit! This is a lot harder than I thought it would be,” he muttered.
“Just spit it out,” Mel blurted out as she uncrossed her arms, crossed her legs, and shifted in her seat.
“Everyone in this little community is a werewolf. The reason we set up our own town was so we could let our wolves free whenever we want and keep our existence a secret from humans.”
Mel drew in a deep, ragged breath and exhaled slowly. Her heart began thundering, and every little hair on her body stood on end. A tremor wracked her body, and she shivered. She wasn’t sure if it was because of fear or because of the incredulousness of Blue’s statement, but either way, it didn’t really matter. She wasn’t sure she really believed him, but from the anomaly she’d seen when Kris’s and then Jenny’s eyes had changed colour, she knew there was definitely something very different about these people.
A giggle began to form in her chest, and although she tried to swallow it down, the sound burst from between her lips. She didn’t laugh for long, but when she finally gained control of herself, she met Blue’s earnest gaze and realised that he believed what he’d just said.
She looked up when she heard footsteps and saw Joe carrying Jenny in his arms.
“He’s not making it up,” Jenny said in a quiet, sincere voice. “We are all able to turn into wolves. Our senses are way more enhanced than a human’s. Didn’t you wonder how Blue could smell your blood and knew you’d cut yourself?”
Mel shook her head, swallowed loudly, and then nodded.
“I wish I could stay and talk to you more, but I really need to lie down for a while. Please just listen to Blue, and he’ll tell you everything he can, but don’t be too pissed at him if you find out more with each day that passes. Besides myself, there is only one other woman here. The rest are men, and since they were born with the Lycan gene, they forget that we don’t know everything about them. I’m still learning, and I’ve been mated to Joe and Blue for over twelve months. If you have any questions, I’ll be available to answer them. Make a list if you want, and when I’m feeling up to par, I’ll give you all the answers you want. Just make sure you aren’t bleeding because, at the moment, the stench of blood really turns my stomach. Okay?”
“Okay,” Mel answered in a hoarse, shaky voice and hoped like hell she hadn’t made the biggest mistake of her life by coming to the remote Outback New South Wales town to work.
Her first instinct was to get the hell out of here, but if what they were telling her was the truth, and they gave chase, she wouldn’t have a hope in hell of escaping.
She felt like she was in a living nightmare or maybe she was in the “Twilight Zone.” How the hell was she supposed to react to the unbelievable story she’d just been told? She wanted to yell at Jenny to come back, but held her tongue. Her heart was beating so fast and hard it hurt and she couldn’t seem to catch her breath. Tears burned the back of her eyes but she held them back not wanting to show any weakness in front of such a dominant man.
She lifted her feet up onto the edge of the sofa and wrapped her arms around her knees. The urge to rock back and forth was one she nearly gave into but with Blue watching her so intently she held still. When he shifted in his seat, lifted his hand to run his fingers through his hair and sighed, she started to tremble.
Mel was scared out of her mind and wanted to light out of here as if the hounds of hell were on her heels but she was too frightened to move.
“I can smell your fear, Melanie. You have nothing to be afraid of. No one here will hurt you.”
She nodded. Although he sounded sincere she wasn’t sure she believed him, especially after how those three men had reacted.
What the hell am I supposed to do now? Should I stay or should I find a way to get out of here? Maybe if I wait for night to fall I can make my escape.
The plan had merit but she had nowhere else to go. She’d upheaved her life for this job. Would the fear currently coursing through her body ever leave, or would she always feel afraid in these people’s presence?
Mel usually didn’t let fear rule her life but how she was supposed to be comfortable while working for werewolves, she didn’t know.
Was there a reason for her being employed other than Blue needing someone to cook because Jenny was pregnant and suffering from morning sickness? The only way to get the answer was to ask outright.
She took a deep breath and met Blue’s gaze again. “Why did you employ me?”
“For the reason I told you in the email,” he answered with a frown. “Why? Did you think I brought you here for other reasons?”
Mel looked away and shrugged. She glanced his way when she heard him move and held her breath when she saw him crawling toward her on his hands and knees. She quivered with fear and although she told her body to get up and run, it didn’t obey her.
His lips pressed hers open, and his tongue plunged deep. She clutched at his shirt as her world went wild. She groaned when his spicy masculine flavour exploded on her tastebuds and leaned into him even more. Her hard nipples grew even harder when they pressed into his body, and she arched her stomach into his hard cock and whimpered when he growled with desire.
With each slide of his tongue against hers, her insides heated and melted a little more, and when his hands caressed over her arse and kneaded the fleshy cheeks, she tried to crawl up his body to get even closer.
A sob of disappointment came from her mouth when his lips left hers, and his hands gripped her upper arms to hold her away from his warm frame. She was about to protest verbally when he released her arms, but when his hands went to the hem of her shirt, she nearly cheered out loud.
“Let me help,” Kris whispered against her ear, and then his front pressed into her back as one of his hands tugged at the button of her jeans.
Johnny whipped her shirt up over her head and flung it to the side, where it landed heedlessly on the floor. When she looked up to find him staring at her bra-covered breasts, her first instinct was to lift her arms to cover them.
Mel had never really had any hang-ups about her body, even though she knew it wasn’t perfect. She had flaws just like anyone else, but when she saw the feverish desire in his eyes, her confidence in her femininity rose.
“So fucking beautiful,” Johnny growled as he lifted first one hand and then the other. Her eyes fluttered closed when his large palms and fingers encompassed her breasts as he kneaded them.
Mel didn’t realise that Kris had already lowered the zipper on her jeans until she felt him pushing them over her hips and down her thighs.
She turned her head when she felt a warm waft of air on her bare belly and saw that Jules was kneeling at her side.
“We forgot her sneakers.” Jules caressed a hand from just under the seam of her panty’s leg down the outside of her thigh and calf until he could go no farther because her jeans were in the way. He tugged her laces open and then placed a hand on her hip as he lifted first one foot and then the other to remove her shoes and socks before he pulled her jeans off.
Her attention was once more centred on Johnny when he plucked her aching nipples between his fingers and thumbs. “I want to see and taste you, sweetheart. You have no idea how long we’ve waited for this moment.”
Mel heard sincerity and reverence in his voice, and when his hands released her breasts, she wanted to rip her bra away herself so that he and his brothers would have access to her throbbing flesh. But just as she went to move, he did too. Instead of unclasping her bra like she expected, a sharp claw protruded from the tip of his index finger, and without any compunction, he sliced through the material and then tugged it off and threw the damaged garment aside.
“Fucking perfect,” Jules rumbled as he stared at her breasts.
“You have the most amazing breasts I’ve ever seen, honey.” Kris breathed against her ear and then proceeded to lick and nibble on her neck.
Melanie was so ready for them to take her she was having difficulty staying on her feet and keeping her head straight so she gave in to the urge to rest her head on Kris’s chest and locked her trembling knees.
She gasped when the tip of a warm finger caressed lightly over the peak of first one nipple and then the other. Her pussy clenched, and cream dribbled out onto her panties.
“I can smell you cream, babe.” Jules’s grip on hip tightened, and then she heard a ripping sound, and she jerked as her undies were torn off.
Between the three of them, they turned her slightly, and then she was drowning in a sea of sensation. Jules pressed his nose to the top of her slit, and he inhaled deeply, breathing in her scent. Kris continued to lick and suck at her neck while plucking and pinching at one of her nipples, and Johnny bent his head and sucked the other into his hot, wet mouth. When the tip of Jules’s nose brushed against her clit, she was a goner.
That was all it took for her to explode.
Melanie cried out as pleasure swamped her body and heated liquid raced through her veins. Her body shook and shivered, and cum dribbled onto the insides of her thighs. She’d never felt anything so amazing and carnally, erotically ecstatic in her life.
She’d had self-induced orgasms before, but nothing compared to the one she’d just experienced, and they weren’t even inside of her yet. Mel wasn’t sure she would survive making love to each of the men, but she was going to soar to the heavens and beyond before her heart gave out and love every minute of it.
“Get her on the bed,” Johnny commanded in a raspy voice.
Jules shifted away and rose just as Kris swept her up into his arms and carried her to the massive bed against the back wall of the room. She expected him to set her down and move away but was glad when he followed her down, his big, brawny body covering her small, petite frame as he slammed his mouth onto hers.
He tasted so good, and she wanted more. When his tongue delved into her mouth, she tangled hers with it, and then she suckled on his muscle. The low growling sounds he made were so darkly erotic her just sated libido began to flare up again.
