From Angles’ Blood by Nalini Singh
Raphael dropped her lightly on the bed.
“Nice.” She sighed at the decadent feel of the sheets against her skin, her eyes locked with those of an archangel. His gaze was so hotly male, so proprietal that she wondered, for a fleeting second, if she’d made a mistake. What if he wanted to keep her? “Did you ever have a slave?” she asked.
His lips curved slightly, but it was an amusement tempered with sensual demand. “Many.” He gripped her ankles, spread her legs. “All very eager to serve–in every possible manner.”
She tried to kick out but he hauled her closer, face drawn in a way that was intrinsically sexual. “Some of them had spent years learning to drive a man to ecstasy. The vampires had had hundreds of years to practice.”
“Bastard.” A cutting denunciation, but her stomach was tight with anticipation, her breasts hot.
“However”–he pulled her up to meet his thrust as he buried himself inside her in one powerful stroke–“none of them did I forbid from taking other lovers.”
Her back arched as she tried to assimilate the impact of his entry into her body, the extreme fullness, the stretched ecstasy. When she could finally draw breath, she found him in the same position, as if he, too, was fighting for control. “You don’t strike me as the sharing type.” Her voice was raw.
“No. If one went to another man”–he began to pull out with slow deliberation–“there were dozens ready to take her place. It mattered little to me.”
She was almost beyond thought now, her entire being focused on the point where their bodies joined. What reason remained collapsed under the heady, seductive force of his words.
“If you take another lover, Elena”–he thrust back in, making her gasp–“what I do to him will become a nightmare etched in human memory.” And then there were no more words, only movement–the slick motion of body against body, the thrust and parry of male and female, the lush erotic explosion into ecstasy.
The last thing Elena remembered was thinking that maybe she’d underestimated the force of their combined hunger.
