It's #throwbackthursday! With the release of CHARMING THE ALPHAS, the final book in the Hex My Heart Series, coming up fast how about a teaser snippet of the first book in the series?
Jake and Honor have had a long standing attraction to one another but their social status among the otherworldlies have forced them apart. Until now. Nothing stands in the way of an alpha werewolf wanting his mate!
“Never call me Mr. Monroe again unless you want me to do unspeakable things to you that would leave you blushing come morning.”
Honor’s magick shimmered the length of her spine and instinct stiffened her muscles. Snapping her phone closed, she whirled on her heel, expecting to find one of her sisters. Instead, chiseled muscles defined by outdoor labor and encased in black cotton came into view. She traced a path first down to see solid thighs covered in the sexiest fucking black jeans she’d ever seen on a man and up to find a gorgeous set of dark blue eyes staring down at her.
“Getting into trouble again?” he drawled, his rough baritone doing wicked things to her cool composure.
That was on the outside. On the inside two emotions warred for control. Fear of what he might have overheard with his heightened hearing. And nerve-searing, thigh-clenching lust.
Lust was winning by a mile.
He anchored his hands on two wooden chairs on either side of him and breathed in deeply then released on a long sigh. “Honor.”
Why did he have to say her name as if he’d just made love with her?
Jake—the werewolf shifter that starred in all her fantasies— stood so close she could reach out and touch any part of her fantasy she wished.
He must have sensed the turn her dirty mind had taken because his pupils dilated and the rims of his irises brightened with an otherworldly glow in a color she could only describe as a mixture of sapphire with shards of ruby. The contrast just as striking as the man. She’d seen his eyes like that once before, but hadn’t gotten to ask what it meant.
“Why the two colors again?”
“What?” He straightened, letting his hands fall to his side.
It was just like her to blurt whatever decided to stomp through her mind before she had a chance to filter her thoughts. Her question caused his brows to pinch together and he took a half step back from her.
“Your eyes. Why are they glowing two colors? They’re beautiful.”
She inched closer, forcing him to bump into a neighboring patron’s table. He threw out a hand to steady it before he answered. “It’s nothing. Just a little tired.”
She reached to settle her calming touch on his shoulder, but he jerked back before she could make contact.
Ouch. She lowered her hand to her side and swallowed the hurt.
Fine. She knew lines when she crossed them and she had no intentions of crossing any more lines with the alpha.
Honor went to sidestep the man and leave him to his corner before she embarrassed herself anymore, but was brought up short with his hand over hers.
With a sigh, she angled her head to the side and asked, “What can I get you this evening, Mr. Monroe?” Her eyes trained on the man who oozed her brand of sexiness and brought Color Me Bad’s I Wanna Sex You Up to mind on constant replay in her head. She quickly looked away, scanning her bar instead.
“Look at me, Honor.” He leaned in, taking up all the space in front of her, the tip of his nose almost touching hers, demanding her attention. Her heart tripped along, quickening her breath.
Standing with her phone in one hand, her other in his, she did as he asked.
“I’m sorry.” He ran his free hand through his tousled shoulder-length hair in frustration. “It’s hard to explain.” His gaze roamed over the half-filled bar before returning to meet hers. “But Honor,” his voice pitched low as though he only wanted her to hear what he was about to say and his dual-toned gaze locked on hers. “Never call me Mr. Monroe again unless you want me to do unspeakable things to you that would leave you blushing come morning.”
