~~~~~ Excerpt ~~~~~
After showering, Laura lay in her bed, her thoughts a whirlwind.
She turned over on the narrow mattress. She ached, with an intensity which
was almost painful, to be out in the wild, stalking the nightlife, hunting for a
Suddenly her nostrils flared, catching a familiar scent. Familiar, but at the
same time, wholly unexpected. The scent of an aroused male.
She squeezed her eyes shut, trying to ignore the tempting aroma, but it seeped
into her mind, elusive and seductive all at once.
She swung her legs out of bed. A drink of water. That's what I need.
She walked down the hall to the kitchen, keeping her eyes away from the door
to Calvin's room. She almost staggered as she passed, the scent so strong it took
all her control to keep herself from flinging it open.
She pulled a bottle of water out of the fridge and leaned back against the
door, drinking thirstily. It had been too long since she'd had a man. During her
last weeks with the pack, Graham had been too worried to make love often.
I bet Cal wouldn't be like that. He's only twenty-seven. He could be my lover
She sank to the floor, suddenly tempted to burst into tears. Why does God hate
me so much? I didn't ask for any of this. Every time I have a tiny slice of happiness
it gets taken away from me.
Her fists clenched, and it took all of her self-control to stay in human form.
She wanted nothing more than to shift and to run. Run up into the mountains and kill
something small and helpless to fill the emptiness inside her.
Instead she capped the bottle of water and shoved it back in the fridge, and
trudged back towards her room. But as she passed Cal's room for the second time,
her dark-accustomed eyes caught a glimpse of movement. Her head turned, and she stopped,
Oh, my God. He's beautiful.
Eyes closed in silent reverie, he lay on his bed, nude, his pale skin glowing
in the moonlight. He seemed to shine silver, as if captured moonlight was gleaming
through his flesh. One hand was clasped around his cock, slowly stroking. The other
hand held a small wad of tissue, and even through the sudden jolt of lust, she couldn't
help but give a tender smile.
Her voice, when she heard it, startled even her. “You're driving me crazy,
She slowly stalked into the room, letting him see her body. Her breasts swayed
slightly with her sensual strut. “Do you think you could jack off and not have me
realize what you were doing?” She bent over the bed. She whispered, “Who were you
thinking of, Cal? Some bimbo on TV?”
His throat worked as he swallowed. “It was you,” he whispered. “You're the
most beautiful woman I have ever seen in my life. I can't...I can't stop thinking
She let her lips curve in a slow smile and set her hand on the inside of Calvin's
thigh. Inch by inch, it crept up until her palm was pressing against his scrotum.
Calvin eyed her nervously, and she knew what he was thinking. Had his declaration
touched her? Or had it insulted her to the point where she would crush his testes
in her hands?
“Thinking of me, were you?” She let her voice fill with quiet menace.
“Quiet. You're playing a dangerous game, Calvin Smith. And you don't even know
the rules.” She let her hand slide up his cock. Oh, it was lovely. “Did you know,”
she went on conversationally, her hand now stroking him, “that wolves mate for life?”
