“More, Gunnar. Give me more.” Her raw demand prodded him to let loose the caged beast roaring for freedom.
“I’ll give you what I can,” he promised.
And he meant it. That didn’t mean he’d take anything for himself. He couldn’t compromise her in any way. Even in his delirium, he had the honor not to do anything that would end with consequences.
He slid his hand under her top and shaped along her ribs, to the unyielding material of her bra. “Now, kjaere, let me feel you.”
Her eyelids fluttered and drooped. She leaned her head back to the wall exposing the elegant column of her throat. Cheeks flushed and whimpering with desire, she swallowed hard and implored, “Please, Gunnar. Don’t stop.”
A deep yearning crashed into him and Gunnar didn’t want to stop. “I won’t,” he reassured, the promise in his tone something he could do nothing to conceal.
Kan Asma Vampires Book 1
When the kraliyet bodyguard ended up in her hospital bed after an explosion left him in critical condition, Nadia tried to warn herself not to fall in love with him. After all, she’s no vampire Cinderella, and happily-ever-afters didn’t happen to low-born females of the Kan Asma. But her heart wouldn’t listen, and soon she wanted to claim Gunnar as her forever mate, even if it meant taking him the only way possible, as a husband in a disgraceful human ceremony.
Gunnar fell in love with his nurse the moment he saw her smile. He yearned to claim her as his, but the Council would never allow him to mingle his powerful blood with a female from a poor family. The penalty for an unsanctioned mating is a death sentence. He doesn’t care about the threats and possible consequences of making her his. Though, due to the high probability of genetic incompatibility, he can’t complete their blood-bond without knowing if it might take her life. Losing her would be worse than torture.
Their only hope lies with the treasonous Faction hell-bent on destroying the very people Gunnar calls family. Determined to find a way to be mated, Gunnar seeks out the leader of this hidden uprising. Together, Nadia and Gunnar must break every law and rite of their vampire culture to become bonded for life. Gunnar will play a deadly game of subversion or pay a blood price that would sever him from their people and put a bounty on his head. They must survive a dangerous infiltration of the Faction, because they’ll do anything to be together, even if it means being mated in treason.
