Bound by blood. Bound by loyalty. Bound by love.
Florian has it all: excellent fashion sense, a kickass job with his best friend, and a hard-won place among Silverton’s werewolves. When a pack of females pads into their territory, Flo’s alpha dispatches him to handle a merger. Total cakewalk. Except Keely, their alpha, has no intention of submitting her wolves to Flo's larger pack. Worse, a single glance from her baby blues sends his eloquence on vacation and his heartbeat into overdrive. His flirtations seem welcome too, but there's a snag. She doesn’t know he’s a vampire.
While Flo struggles with his conflicts—obey his alpha, or win over Keely—his estranged sire blasts into town with a catalog of radical ideas. And hanging out with unsophisticated werewolves didn't make the list.
With violence in the air and all sides testing his loyalties, Florian must bite back, even if showing his fangs costs him the girl.
A Mona Lisa smile on her face, Keely circled the bed and sat at my end.
I swallowed. “About that gratitude.”
“A little thank you.” She leaned to the side and retrieved the cuffs from her pocket. “You’re so difficult to shop for.”
The metal chain looped over her outstretched finger, balancing the two rings. She’d gone for keyless toy cuffs, easy to place and remove by way of a latch.
Not too comfortable for her in the long run, but perfect for right now.
“It’s what I’ve always wanted.” I grinned. “Thank you.”
She stretched back onto her arms and raised her eyebrows. “I suggest you try them soon, in case you don’t like them and I have to take them back.”
Our knees touched. I bent over, arms framing her on both sides, and kissed her. Deep. Hard. Filled with possessive intent. My mouth laid the path for the next few hours. She was mine, and she’d soon know it.
She cupped my neck with one hand and placed the other across my pecs. Her touch raised tingles on my skin.
My tongue dominated hers, our breaths mingled. I pressed her head onto the mattress, soaked in her taste.
Dammit, that Keely flavor held too much power over me.
I shifted my hand around to her front, and ripped open her button and zipper.
Carmen lives in the south of England with her beloved tea maker and a stuffed sheep called Fergus. An avid reader since childhood, she caught the writing bug when her Nana asked her to write a story. She also has a law degree, studied physics for a few years, dabbled in marketing and human resources, and speaks native-level German and fluent Geek. Her preferred niches of geekdom are tabletop games, comics, sci-fi and fantasy.
She writes about smart women with sassitude, about pretty cool guys too, and will chase that plot twist, no matter how elusive.
Guarded (The Silverton Chronicles – Bk. 1) became a no. 1 bestseller in the vampire and werewolf mystery categories.
