Taken By Her Mate

TBHM2

Northern Silver Pack, 1

A virgin betrothed to a womanizer...

Addie has been promised to Brendan since her birth. She no choice but to follow through and become the mate to a shape-shifting wolf she doesn’t love. But when Shaun, a childhood friend and the male she has always wanted, refuses to let her mate with another, she is afraid her love for Shaun will cause destruction between their packs.

The future alpha in love with a woman he can’t have…

Shaun has loved Addie since they were children, but she is promised to another male. Claiming her can start a war between their packs, but Shaun can’t stand back and let another male have her. When the heat between Addie and Shaun ignites, they know their attraction can’t be denied. But Brendan isn’t about to let Addie go, and when she is taken, Shaun will stop at nothing to get her back.

Be Warned: anal sex

Excerpt: 

“It doesn’t matter, Shaun. The pack won’t let me be with any other males.” He bared his teeth at her in a purely animalistic way. When he leaned in close she felt his breath tease the shell of her ear.

“Addie, when I say you are mine, I mean you. Are. Mine.” He took her mouth again in a bruising kiss that had her heart stuttering. “There is no one that will keep me from you. I made the mistake of leaving you, knowing you would mate with Brendan. I let others dictate what I should and shouldn’t have in my life. Not again.” The conviction in his voice scared her more than his actual words. Shaun had never acted like he wanted her as a mate, but the way he spoke, so passionately, told her otherwise.

“It’ll be war between our packs, Shaun.” A look crossed his face, but she couldn’t tell what it meant.

“Nothing will keep me away from you. Not again, Addie. Not again.” Tongues dueled together, and she found she didn’t have the strength to push him away again. It would have been the wise thing to do, but she couldn’t. She was sick of denying herself. Too many years she had let others run her life. For once she wanted to do something that would please her.

His hands gripped the edge of her dress, his knuckles brushing along her thighs.

“Let me in, Addie.” His eyes implored her to listen to what he said. His words weren’t sexual, but from the heart. A suspended moment passed between them, and she felt herself nod. A look of pure male satisfaction crossed his face, then he was on his knees before her.

Heart pounding wildly, she stared down at him. To have such a big, powerful male at her feet was a little surreal. His hands started at her ankles and slipped up her calves and stopped at her knees. The whole time he kept his gaze locked on hers. Licking her lips, she nodded because Addie knew that’s what he had been waiting for. Ever so slowly he pushed her dress up, revealing her thighs and silk-covered pussy to his gaze. The feel of his hot, hard breath against her flesh had her cunt creaming. She was so wet, ridiculously soaked for Shaun.

“I want to taste you, baby. You’ll let me, Addie, won’t you.” It wasn’t a question. His hands tightened on her dress as he lifted it higher, baring her rounded belly. She was far from thin, but the way he looked at her, as if her body was made to be worshipped, had any feeling of being self-conscious leaving her. Letting her head rest against the tree, she licked her lips. “Yeah, you’ll let me do whatever I want.” His mouth was suddenly on her pussy, his tongue licking at her through her panties. It shouldn’t have felt so good, but it did. God, but it did.

“Shaun.” His name left her on a soft moan, and she closed her eyes and spread her legs wider. She felt his finger frame either side of her pussy a moment before he pulled the lace of her panties aside. Cool air met her overheated flesh, but that was short-lived when his hot, wet tongue delved between the folds of her cunt. “Oh, God.” The feel of his thumbs spreading her lips apart nearly had her coming right then.

“Look at me, Addie. Watch what I’m going to do to you.”

[Siren Classic: Erotic Paranormal Romance, werewolves, HEA]

Rock Wood is not like many towns. In the darkness lurks a dark secret as the town houses one of the fiercest wolf packs.

Charlotte is forced into going to a party on the outskirts of town. She doesn’t expect it to turn into a nightmare.

Leader of the pack Micah must do everything in his power to keep the people of his town safe. The only solution is to mate with the young woman who had been thrust into his care. Four years pass and Micah can’t control his beast. He needs his mate and intends to claim her.

However, danger still lurks in every corner. A woman from his past refuses to accept Charlotte as her queen. Micah must fight for the love of his queen, for her protection, and for the future of his pack, but will it be too late to save her?

STORY EXCERPT

 

Micah watched the young girl fight to be free. He turned and glared at Kim, the person who’d caused all of their problems. The call of the moon and the wolf grew stronger. Large canines grew in his mouth, and his hands began to shape into large fiendish claws. A woman in his bar was in danger, and the animal within him responded.

“Let the girl go,” he ordered. With each word he spoke, his voice grew louder. The submissive wolves in the back were cowering to his dominance.

Brandon smiled but didn’t let the girl go. Instead, he cupped her between the thighs. The young girl screamed in fright, the sound painful to hear. He didn’t allow any woman to be hurt in his company. Stepping forward, he glared at his two trusted men, who moved closer as well. This wasn’t a fight for power but a fight to protect someone smaller and way more delicate than their kind.

“So the big bad wolf has come to play?”

“She’s in my town, in my bar, under my protection. Put my property down.” He paid and served this town well. Made sure they always had work and business. In return, he asked for them to board up their homes for three nights of the month.

“But she doesn’t smell like pack. She smells innocent, and with no claim. By our very laws, it means she’s up for grabs. Our men did catch her, and it’s been so long since they’ve had a plaything.”

Micah knew about the laws. He’d helped to write a few of them.

“Unless you’re willing to use another method?”

Micah should have seen this coming. For years, Brandon and his pack of mutts had tried to take over his turf. He wasn’t having any of it.

“What do you want?” he asked, already knowing the answer.

“You take the girl for yourself. Right now, in front of us. Mark her and make her yours.” Murmurs ran through the whole of the room.

The girl stared at him with a mixture of fear and hope radiating out of her eyes. She was young, and he scented she was close to womanhood. Her scent held the spark of innocence that wasn’t associated with a woman used to physical contact. Perhaps seventeen, eighteen. Fuck, he hoped she was older. What Brandon was asking would terrify any woman who wasn’t accustomed to pack laws. She wouldn’t know what was about to happen, and he was about to put one of the townspeople in danger.

“What’s your name?” he asked.

“Charlotte Griffin,” she whispered.

Micah stared at Kim. “I want to know what selfish reasoning you used in a bargain that has put your sister’s life in danger.”

Kim gazed at the floor. What happened tonight would not go unpunished. Micah knew he’d have to hold a meeting with the townspeople about Kim. For now, Charlotte and her innocence were at stake.

“Come here, Charlotte,” he called, making sure his voice was calm so he wouldn’t frighten her.

He watched as she pulled away from the man holding her and moved around Brandon. She licked her lips and then focused on Micah as she walked the short distance to stand in front of him.

“Do you know what is going on?”

Charlotte shook her head.

“Do you know who I am? What I am?”

She shook her head again.

“I’m going to need you to trust me.”

Micah waited as she looked behind her at the Eagles and then turned back to him. “I will.”

He took her hand and brought her into contact with his body. Shit, Brandon had been right. She smelled of innocence on a fresh spring morn. Her scent dazzled him.

Cupping her chin, he tilted her head back until she stared into his eyes. He ran his thumb across her full bottom lip. He loosened his grip on her chin, a finger travelling down past her throat to her vulnerable neck. The delights within her small body tempted him. Micah was alarmed. No human female could tempt him. The demands of his body craved rough, hard fucking. The mate, or woman who would become his for the rest of his life, would have to learn to take all of him. His cock was long and thick like the rest of him. A human female would struggle. Even now, because of his sheer size, he refused to take human women for fear of breaking them. Clearing his head of his troubled thoughts, he put all of his attention into Charlotte.

His protective instincts rushing forward, he tilted her head back and looked at her delicate neck, beautifully exposed for him to see. Her pulse was beating rapidly, her breaths coming in short, sharp pants. The world around him stopped. The scent of honey, vanilla, and the fresh sunshine during a morning run through thick forests invaded his senses. Micah pictured Charlotte naked running from him but with the intention of getting caught. He growled as the instinct to claim her surged within him. One moment she was standing with her head tilted back, and the next, her back pressed against his. The speed at which he moved would terrify most humans. He bit into his palm—the thick blood oozing out—and pressed it to her lips.

She fought him. The little wildcat struggled in his hold. The call of the moon hit him, the canines in his mouth growing for the mating call. In one smooth motion, he struck, his wolf teeth sinking into her human flesh. The fluid from his own vein fed her at the same time he took hers. Micah’s one free arm caught her to him. After a few seconds with his teeth inside her, her struggles ceased. Charlotte went pliant in his arms as she passed out.

Micah retracted his claws and looked down into the face of the young woman he’d just destroyed.

The alpha of the Rock Wood pack had mated a human female.

 

ADULT EXCERPT

 

She stood before him in her underwear. Micah stepped back and gazed at the beauty of her body.

“Do you hate what you see?”

“I love what I see.” He took her hand and brought her against his own. He roughly pulled at his clothes until they tore or were yanked free.

He picked her up and carried her to the bed. Charlotte giggled.

“This is insane. I’ve never done anything like this before.”

“And you’ll only ever do this with me. No other man will have you. Never.” Micah yanked the bra from her body, her large tits spilling free. His cock was so fucking hard. Pre-cum already leaked from the tip.

The need to gain control over the fiery lust pulsing through his veins was vital before he tipped her back and fucked her hard and rough for the first time. Lips and tongue sucked her nipples and played with her breasts. His other hand went between her legs and ripped the fabric of her panties in half. He threw them away, replacing his hand on her mound. A small amount of hair outlined her pussy lips, making him harder.

Micah ran a finger through the moist slit and cursed at her wetness. The scent of her need permeated the room.

Sucking in a breath and turning from her, Micah got his beast under control. He wouldn’t ruin her first time by being an animal.

No one had ever told him how powerful he’d feel having his mate close by. Charlotte meant the world to him.

“Are you all right?” she asked. He heard her moving, and then her hand lay lightly on his shoulder.

“I need to make sure I won’t hurt you.” He turned back to her and watched her gasp. One of her hands covered her mouth.

“Your eyes are different. Your eyes have gone black where they’re usually gray.” Seeing her reaction made him gain the control to pull his beast back and stop him from unleashing the monster within.

“I’m sorry.”

“Don’t be sorry. It’s who you are.” She cupped his face and brought him up for a kiss. She knelt on the bed, and Micah tumbled her back down. His body covered hers.

Her glorious honey smell tempted him like no other. He knew he wanted to take her on one of the nights of the full moon. To see her body writhe in pleasure, soaked in the moonlight.

Micah worked her body, kissing her lips and creating a path downward until he reached her lovely-smelling cunt.

She cried out when he used his fingers to spread her wide. Her tiny clit was peeking out from the hood, red and swollen. He licked up her slit, smelling her own exquisite scent.

“What are you doing?” she demanded on a moan.

Micah smiled. His little maid didn’t know the true carnal pleasures that awaited her.

“Lay back, baby. Enjoy.” He used his tongue to bring her to the height of pleasure. His hands moved up her body and began to play with the swollen red nipples. Charlotte thrashed beneath him, crying out for him to stop and then to carry on. He chuckled, loving her reaction. Micah wanted her dripping wet with her own natural lubricant before he tried to fuck her with his large cock.

She was panting and screaming for a release she didn’t understand. Micah finally heard her submit to the pleasure he was giving her. He licked her clit until she cried out and convulsed in orgasm. He didn’t want to hurt her. She was coming down from her high, he grasped his cock. The tip and head covered in his pre-cum, he aligned his cock with her pussy entrance. In one smooth thrust, he penetrated her virgin cunt and claimed Charlotte Griffin as his own.

Her tight pussy fluttered around his hard shaft. He’d taken her innocence in the first thrust, but his cock wasn’t all the way in. Compared to his body, she was so tiny and small. Tears shone in her eyes, and he knew, even with her climax, he’d hurt her.

“I’m sorry,” he whispered.

“Please don’t move anymore,” she requested.

“I’ve got to. I’m not all the way in.”

“It hurts,” she cried out.

Micah didn’t move at all. Instead, he grabbed her waist, running his hands over her hips and grasping her butt. He laid kisses on her shoulder, loving her body with his touch. Never in his life would he want to hurt her.

He cursed his body and the instinct of the wolf. If he didn’t claim her soon, he’d be driven insane by the vision of being with her. If he didn’t get himself under control he risked killing her in the process.

After some time, her pelvis began to move, and he knew the pain would have lessened, and her body was starting to crave for more.

“Can I move?” He didn’t want to hurt her, and if it meant waiting for her, he’d wait as long as his beast would allow.

“Will it hurt?”

“I don’t think so. That pain is gone. Only pleasure is left.” He crossed his fingers, hoping he was right.

“Okay, we’ll try it.”

Micah took her lips and brought her lower body under his. His mate would like the loving of his body.

He’d make sure of it.

Excerpt From: William

Present day

The sound of glass smashing could be heard in every corner of the bar. The audience looked on at the spectacle in silence, each doubtless wondering if they would be the target of the vampire’s wrath.

“Where is she?” A fist was raised. Usually, bar fights were great sport, but in a predominantly vampire-filled bar there was no sport, just information gathering—and it wasn’t acquired over tea and biscuits. It always got bloody and it never ended well. A Valentine was on the prowl and no one was about to get in his way—even if the vampire William targeted was scared for his life.

The way the other customers saw it, the guy getting pummelled shouldn’t have earned a reputation for being a messenger to the wolves. A man supporting both sides of the war.

“I don’t know, man. No one has talked.” The guy covered his face, denying all knowledge. Adam stood and observed from the dark corner as he watched his older brother lose control. William was completely out of it.

Since another witch had been taken—Katie, the best friend of his brother Robert’s bonded mate—it was like he was losing his sense of reality. No one could reason with him.

“Tell me where they are,” William snarled in the young vampire’s face. Adam winced. He was here as a favour to Robert and he loved his brother, but this was too damn much. There was no thought, no consideration of the chaos he was causing. It had hit him worse even than losing Emma. It was like someone had carved out his heart and left him hurt and bleeding.

Katie White, the last remaining witch, was still alive, and that made it worse. At least Emma had been dead and he’d known there was nothing he could do to change that. But William knew that Katie was out there, and he was leaving a wave of destruction everywhere he went in his efforts to find her.

William wasn’t the same man. There was no mercy in this guy. Rage, anger and pain consumed him now. His was on a destructive path. No one—not even Robert—could stop him now.

Adam looked around at all the people observing the fight. Vampires, wolves…shit, even demons sat and watched William. Most of them looked terrified of the vampire who had clearly lost his mind.

Shaking his head, Adam turned back to watch his brother.

As much as he thought that this was wrong, he would never get in between his brother and what he felt he needed to do. The witch clearly meant something to him. No vampire went this crazy for a woman unless she was a bond mate.

Adam didn’t know much about her. He’d never met her. A few months ago, she had been taken by the wolf Alpha, James. The same night his own father—head of the vampire council and the most powerful vampire in all of Beyer West—had been killed. Murdered, actually. Taken from them by the same wolf.

Everything around them was going to shit and his brother was determined to go down the same path. At any time the other customers could jump them and finally be rid of the unstable Valentine boy. For decades, William had made himself a reputation for being the crazy brother, but now he was driving his ruthlessness to a whole new level.

Adam tensed as the barman approached his brother. The barman was a vampire and, from the look of it, one of the older generation. Adam moved closer. If it went the wrong way he would back his brother. Whether he believed what his brother was doing was right or not, family came first.

That was what made him a Valentine.

Adam watched as William raised his fist, ready to take another set of swipes at the guy he held. The barman stopped his raised fist easily, holding it in his, and span William around as if he were nothing more than a rag doll.

“Son, he said he didn’t know nothing. Leave him be,” the barman said.

William hissed and tried to hit the barman, a great insult amongst their community. Out of respect, no one attacked the older generation. Adam swore and moved forward.

The barman grabbed William and, using the full force of his upper body, threw him against the bar. The bottles rattled and the customers close by dispersed, not wanting to get involved in a fight that was clearly about to get worse.

Adam ran, going for the man who was holding his brother. The barman turned and sucker-punched him across the room before Adam could even land a blow. He crashed through the window, broken shards of glass spraying around him.

“Fuck,” Adam cursed. The only humans in the street were ones who had seen too much of this world and were pretty much crazy. Drunks, druggies and prostitutes who knew better than to talk about what they had seen. His fangs protruded as his anger rose.

Fuck protocol. Adam was pissed off and cruising for a fight.

He stormed back into the bar.

William was bloodied but he was getting in a few punches of his own.

“I’ve told you not to bring shit like this to my bar. I didn’t serve your fucking family to have you ruin my business,” the barman yelled as he pushed William away from him.

Excerpt From: Robert

 

The Council of Vampires, somewhere in Beyer West.

 

“You will allow this match to go through.”

Robert Valentine glanced over at his father—head of the Valentine Corporation and leader of his family—feeling bewildered and angry.

“It is just another human family on the verge—”

“I don’t care,” his father yelled at him across the room.

Robert watched his mother flinch. His three brothers turned away, not wanting their father’s wrath directed at them. Robert understood. These were perilous times and his father had no room in his life for arguments. His two sisters were not even allowed access to the Council’s chambers. Instead, old traditions said they must remain outside at all times. One day, Robert wished to banish the old ways and start afresh. Rose and Dawn were equally affected by what happened in this place as he was.

Robert looked at his father. He respected him but there were times when he despised the way in which the man worked. The laws that governed their society were archaic. If they didn’t change their ways soon, Robert believed it would get them all killed.

“What have they offered?” Robert asked, trying to take some interest in the situation, since it was likely to affect his future. At the moment he had no power to change the outcome of tonight’s events.

His father nodded to the guards to open the connecting door leading out to the human visiting room. This allowed humans a place to sit and wait, and offered protection against the abuses of the outside world. Vampire protection, among the humans, was considered a last resort, and only the most degraded and those without pride accepted such an alliance.

A man and a woman entered the great hall. There was nothing fantastic about their appearance. They were dressed in business suits, neat and tidy, and he noted that they appeared to be in their late fifties. One of them carried a folder, which was odd. He assumed the folder contained information, but the Council usually had all the information it needed about human visitors petitioning for help. Beyer West might be a small town, but it was a Valentine-run town. His father was pedantic in his dealings with the human public. Every deal and alliance must be well-documented and sealed away for future reference.

“Mr and Mrs Ford, allow me to introduce my oldest son, Robert Valentine.”

Robert acknowledged the couple, bowing, as was the protocol among his family. He kept his attention on the Council and his own family, though. He knew of the Fords from his own company dealings. They were a prosperous family who should have no need of the Valentines’ services. Only last week Robert had checked the profit margins for the town’s most affluent families. It all seemed rather odd to him.

The couple glanced nervously around them.

“We need the kind of protection you are notorious for offering,” Mrs Ford said.

Robert noticed that Mr Ford was scratching his head and felt like doing the same. How could this company need their help? Last time he checked, Mrs Ford stayed at home with the children while her husband ran the company. Robert couldn’t think of a single reason why they would be at the Council.

“We are not a security company, Mrs Ford.”

“I’m aware of that, but we can meet the price that you have set.” She handed over the file. “We’ve stumbled into some financial difficulty and we would also like assistance with this.”

Robert Valentine opened the folder. An A4 picture of a beautiful young woman stared up at him, an innocent and carefree smile shining from deep within her.

“Pretty girl,” he complimented her.

“That is Sophie. My only daughter and not a girl but a woman of twenty-one,” Mr Ford corrected him.

“With all due respect, Mr Ford, I’m more than five hundred years old. To me, she is a child,” Robert snapped, looking up to glare at the couple.

He couldn’t deny the intrigue he felt about the girl, just from the picture he’d seen, but she was still a child. Her picture and family situation should not concern him or his family. Why did he suddenly have a bad vibe about the whole meeting? Robert glanced back at the file. The innocence clearly expressed in her beautiful features said that this girl hadn’t yet been tainted by the real world. He felt a tug at his heart, knowing that within months the smile would be gone, replaced by a frown and wary features. That was just part of life, but something within him didn’t want this girl to be affected by it.

This meeting was getting odder by the second.

Mr Ford retreated, leaving his wife to deal with the proceedings.

“The protection you offer is that no harm will come to the family, as well as you supplying money to cover our debts?” she asked.

His father nodded.

“The deal would be between Sophie and me,” Robert interrupted. He found that he wished to see the real-life vision of the girl in the photo. To witness her innocence himself and to see her reaction to him. Would she be as affected by him as he was by her?
