Regan was looking down at her luggage that did not seem to want to roll on the carpeted floor instead of looking where she was going. She ran into what felt like a solid brick wall, which knocked the breath out of her and shoved her backward making her trip over her luggage and land on her ass with a bounce in a tangle of legs and luggage. Her long hair spilled over her face, and she couldn’t see a damned thing.
“Son of a…” Regan said when she hit the hard floor.
Suddenly Regan was pulled back up as large hot hands gripped her around her waist and lifted her clear off her feet, then sat her back down. Regan shoved all of her long hair out of her face to find herself staring up, way up, at Tall, Dark, and Drop Dead Gorgeous. Oh my.
Her eyes widened, all the breath left her body. Her heart thundered in her chest. She felt a warm tingling feeling move through her from her head to her toes. She knew she must look like a fish out of water with her mouth in an "O" as she gawked up at him.
He in turn seemed to have the same reaction to her as she did to him when he got a good look at her, except he was able to keep his mouth shut. Well, maybe not, but at least he looked damned cute when he did it.
Mercy was that amazing scent coming from him?
Regan wanted nothing more than to lean into him and breathe in his scent, but she caught herself before she did. Her eyes widened ever more when she realized that she was leaning forward to do just that.
What the hell was she thinking?
Regan reached up and touched her mouth with a shaking hand to make sure she wasn’t drooling on herself and realized he still had a hold of her. She was suddenly aware of the wave of heated energy humming around her and the heat from his hands where he touched her, even through her clothes. She finally found her tongue that she was sure she swallowed.
“Oh God, I…I am so sorry. It was entirely my fault. I was not watching where I was going. I apologize,” she told him quickly.
“Are you all right?” the stranger asked in a deep, sexy voice that made things tighten down low.
“Yes I…I’m fine thank you,” she managed to get out as she resisted the urge to touch him.
Regan gasped when she finally noticed the other two men that were with him as she stepped back to put some distance between them. The man holding her tightened his grip on her for a second, but then he let her go.
The other two men were just as tall and just as handsome as the man who had been holding her was, and they were all staring at her in what she could only describe as shock.
Good Lord, she couldn’t figure out which one was the best looking because they all were. She took in the fact that they were all very well dressed, wearing designer suits that screamed money. They all had black hair, which hung to their collars. They all had dark blue eyes fringed with thick lashes that any girl would envy.
Regan looked back at the man she had ran into. She wanted to run her hands through his thick hair to see if it was as soft as it looked.
Maybe the other two men were his bodyguards or something, but she did notice that they did resemble one another. She decided as hot as they were they probably all needed bodyguards just to keep the women away.
The man that had been holding her had to grab her once more when she stepped back and almost tripped over her piece of luggage again. Regan’s face flushed with embarrassment, so he released her again.
“Are you sure you are okay?” the man asked with a slight grin.
Regan’s mouth went dry, and she nodded vigorously because she couldn’t form the words. She bit her bottom lip, and then she noticed his eyes on her mouth before they met hers once more. What she saw there in his heated gaze made the heat rise in her body.
Regan could hardly breathe as she stared into the eyes of the man before her. There was something about this man that caused something deep inside of her to stir to life making her feel feverish and her body to ache. She wanted nothing more than to jump into his arms and kiss him, to touch him, but the thought also frightened her. She had never had such an intense reaction to anyone like this before, ever.
Oh God, what was wrong with her?
Suddenly Kayla stepped out of the elevator and was by her side. It didn’t help that she was wearing a bright pair of SpongeBob pajamas, fuzzy yellow shoes, and her hair was in pigtails making her look like she was twelve.
“There you are, Regan. We thought you got lost,” she said with a loud very unladylike yawn before she noticed the three men standing with Regan looking at her.
“Oh God,” Kayla said as her face turned ten shades of red.
Kayla quickly grabbed Regan’s luggage and her bag, then Regan’s arm and began pulling her to the elevator as she stared at the men.
“I’m so sorry,” Regan said to the man who was watching her closely as she let Kayla pull her away and into the elevator. They were still staring at her as the doors shut. Regan’s eyes never left the stranger’s eyes until the elevator doors shut.
He just hoped and prayed that Regan would accept him as she had done Evan. If not he would just have to convince her to accept him, and he could be very convincing.
The second he touched her he knew he needed not to have worried about that. Regan looked up at him with wild eyes and grabbed him and took his mouth in a deep demanding kiss, pressing her soft body against his.
Vaughn was lost as soon as he touched her.
“Please, Vaughn, I-I need… I-I…” Regan was saying as she pulled away from the kiss, grasping for breath and rubbing her body up against his. She was sobbing from the throbbing pain, from the need.
“I can’t do this. Oh God, Vaughn. What’s happening to me?” she cried.
“Ssshhh, Regan, I’m here for you,” he told her softly.
“I-I can’t… I can’t do this…” she was saying against his lips.
Her body was saying something else as she withered under him, rubbing her hard nipples over his chest. She ran her hands up and down his back to his ass, pulling him closer, her nails scraping his skin. She wrapped her legs around him and growled. Her power swept over him calling to his beast.
“Vaughn, please, it hurts.”
“Ssshhh, Regan, let me take care of you. Will you let me do that?” he asked, brushing her hair out of her face and looking her in the eyes.
“Will you accept me, Regan?” he asked as he leaned down on his elbows.
“Yes, Vaughn, I-I want you. Please help me, please,” she begged, tightening her legs around him and lifting her hips to rub against him.
Vaughn growled. As he pushed up he could see she was already dripping wet and swollen beautifully with need. He had never been so aroused before. He pulled her legs up on his forearms opening her legs even wider. He shut his eyes as he began to sink into her hot slick pussy. Her body resisted him and he had to fight not to thrust his way in. He worried that he would hurt her. He had a huge cock, and she was so small. He could feel how tight she was gripping his cock like a vise, and he was just barely in.
He wanted to go slow to savor the moment, but Regan and his beast had other ideas. Regan dug her heels into his ass and lifted her hips as his beast rose up almost ripping all control from him as he took his mate for the first time.
With a deep growl rumbling in his chest Vaughn plunged his long thick cock in her hot slick depths, stretching her, filling her.
She screamed and shoved on his chest. Vaughn growled again and took her hands and pinned them to the bed on each side of them. Vaughn held still letting her body adjust to his size while he tried to gain control of his beast.
Regan panted, her body burning with need. Vaughn was huge, and she felt every inch of him as he pulsed inside of her. It hurt to have him in her, but it felt wonderful at the same time, and she needed more. She needed him to move, to take her, and she needed it now.
“Regan, be still. Just give it a second,” he told her with a growl.
It was Regan that began to move under him lifting her hips to get him to move. She was begging him. With a growl he did, giving her what she needed. He let go of her wrists as he leaned down bringing her knees to her chest to hold her in place as he pulled almost all the way out before thrusting deep again so that she cried out each time he surged in.
Neither Vaughn nor his beast had ever felt anything like her before. She was hot and so tight he was ready to spill. His beast wanted her desperately, forcing Vaughn to lose it. Then he was pistoning in and out of her holding her down until she threw back her head and screamed his name. She tensed up and came around him with the walls of her sheath clamping down on him like a tight fist. He leaned back to watch her. She was a sight to behold, and she was his.
“Fuck,” he yelled.
With a growl he dropped her legs, leaned back, and gripped her hips, lifting her and pulling her up onto his cock until she shattered again and again. Suddenly he felt a strange sensation. He threw his head back and yelled out as he felt the end of his cock knot up and lock into place as he filled her with his hot seed. He came harder than he ever had in his life, and he felt it through his whole body. It left him breathing hard as he fell over her catching himself with one hand beside her head as he held her hips to him with the other.
He was still coming when suddenly Regan leaned forward and grabbed him around his neck. He could see her canines. He felt his own extending as she bit his chest because she couldn’t reach his neck. Vaughn gathered her up against him as soon as she let go of him and sat back on his heels, bringing her with him, straddling him with his cock swollen and locked inside of her so he could reach her neck, marking her as his own. His teeth sank into her tender flesh to taste her sweet blood that soothed his beast. Regan screamed as she tightened around him again when he bit her.
