Excerpt: VAMPIRESS RISING
Alyson shoved Mattie harder against the kitchen counter as she kissed him with an urgency and intensity that he knew she would not even try to control. She was such a petite and fragile seeming little thing, that her strength and boldness never ceased to amaze him. He returned her eager advances, but knew she could feel his hesitation. He was fighting it: not her kisses of course, but his ever increasing and incessant thirst for her blood.
Just the scent of her made the vampire within him rise up and impatiently beg to be released. Her blood beckoned and he couldn’t wait any longer. He broke from her lips as she pressed herself against him, gasping for breath. “Allie, I need to…” He couldn’t even complete the request before the change overcame him, unleashing the vampire within. His vision blurred and shifted as he felt his fangs unsheathe and bare themselves. She immediately realized his need. She pulled the collar of her shirt away from her throat, giving him access to her tender skin, awaiting the euphoria his venom would bring her as reward.
For the first time in six months his fangs pierced through flesh and his venom coursed into her quickly, eager to claim a victim for itself and mark territory for him as a vampire once again. As his viscous fluid moved through her, claiming every pore of her that it could reach, she became his, marked and glowing with his signature in every other vampire’s eyes. Her blood was for him alone, and what intoxicating blood it was.
Mattie crushed his lover to him as her blood began to fill his mouth. It was thick, rich and rewarding; how had he kept himself from such ecstasy for so long? Worse than that, how could he ever give her up? Then another urge invaded his already clouded mind. To drink all of Allie’s blood and bring her death was unthinkable…but what if he gave her his own blood in return? What if he changed her to join him...as a vampire?
