The excerpt for today is from Vampire King of New York. King Max is a billionaire, CEO of VMeer Industries, and was once but still is a Viking in his heart. With all the fun he’s had over his thousand plus years, while not looking a day over 24, he has watched other ancient ones give up their lives. While in Iceland, he prays to the Goddess Freya to help him find the one woman who can heal his heart or enclose him forever in ice. The goddess sends him back to New York to find that woman and fight a terror that threatens the city. In the excerpt, the almost invincible Max has actually been injured.
“I didn’t mean to make you angry when I offered my blood.” Her voice was soft and soothing.
“I know that. It’s just that I wouldn’t ever take your blood, not if my life depended on it,” Max said.
“You’re important to me, Evelyn. Are you going to sleep beside me?”
“Yes, I’m guarding you.”
He held in the chuckle at the idea of someone so delicate guarding him. The feeling was soon washed away by a subtle reverence for her kind, but determined nature. Evelyn might not have any Telkhine powers, but she did have power over him.
“Max, are you laughing at me?”
He was certain he hadn’t made a noise. “No, Evelyn, I am in awe of you.”
Even in the dark, he could see her lovely crimson blush.
“There is one thing that you could do that would help,” he whispered.
“What is that?” He could hear the eagerness in her voice.
“Kiss me, Evelyn.”
He hadn’t said it like a command. She had offered to help. Heat rushed through her veins. At this rate, she’d be blushing all night. “How exactly is my kiss supposed to help you?”
“It will make me happy, and I haven’t been happy for a very long time.”
By the way he expressed himself, she was sure he couldn’t have read her thoughts, but his feelings had mirrored her own. Laying together in the dark, she could only estimate where his face was, but every single part of her wanted to try. Evelyn leaned on one elbow and then lowered her face to where she imagined his was. He assisted by exhaling. She was in complete control here. It was her choice. She pressed her lips to his and instantly floated out of her body to some dream world. Evelyn was like a lotus of flame on the water, opening up to the heat of the sun. The water became a tide washing her ashore to a strange land of night. Spirals of green light danced across the sky.
Evelyn was back to the kiss in a flash. She was still kissing Max, enjoying the growing heat between them, the welcoming of his mouth on hers. More had evolved in her otherworld absence. Her arms were flung around him, and he responded in kind. Every part of her lay on top of every part of him. Oh, I feel dizzy. Max is intense.
