EXCERPT - The Deepest Craving by Gena Showalter

Release Date: 30 July 2013

His skin prickled, and maybe he moved. Maybe he spoke. Her gaze lifted to meet his. Her lips parted on a startled exhalation. Could she see the rawness of his need? 
“Kane.” A breathy entreaty. 
           In that moment, the cry of the demon ceased to matter. The past faded, leaving only the present…the future, and the unstoppable tide of the pleasure to come. Every bone vibrated. He needed to get inside her. Here. Now. 
           It would be agony. 
           It would be ecstasy. 
           Tension coiled low in his gut, only to spring apart and jolt him into a stand. “Leave us,” he said, his voice a broken rasp. 
           No questions. No protests. The two seamstresses flittered from the room, shutting the door behind them. 
           The teapot shattered on the tray, dark liquid spilling everywhere, glass flying. Disaster’s newest attempt to deter him.
           Tinker Bell didn’t seem to notice, was too busy watching him. “I-is something wrong?”
           Silent, he stalked toward her. A predator with a purpose. He was done resisting. Done thinking about all the reasons why not. Today, he was taking something. 
           Perhaps sensing the dark, greedy urges driving him, she straightened with a snap. Her breathing quickened. “Kane,” she said. 
           “Tell me to stop.” He stood a mere heartbeat away, their gazes locked together, trapped. Nothing else would halt the madness. 
           “I…I can’t.”
