Welcome to My Sexy Saturday! This is where writers post 7 paragraphs, 7 sentences, or 7 words from their WIP or Published Books.
This week’s theme is My Special Kind of Sexy.
Today’s excerpt comes from newest Dark Assassins series novella:
Free for One Day Only (April 22nd, 2017)
Immortals have been a part of Seth’s world since he barged into Kai’s life at the age of twelve. And having a group of shifter and vampire assassins he considered family, he thought that he’d seen it all and that nothing would surprise him. But the one night he met Aubrey changed his world, and he’d never been so happy to be wrong.
Aubrey was used to seclusion, even before she had been turned into a vampire. She’d never dreamed of a life outside her tiny little world, but that was until she met Seth. Before she could understand her reactions, she ran from him. But she couldn’t stay away. The more she gets to know him, the stronger the connection between them solidifies.
When Seth tells Aubrey that he is her mate, will she take a chance and keep him forever?

Seth’s taste called to her in a way she’d never thought possible, but images of pain and gushing blood rose in her mind. She was afraid that she would lose control from the taste of his blood, and worried she would rip out his throat. The images filtered through her mind, over and over again, and she panicked before she could quell them. Finding herself across the room hadn’t been a surprise. She couldn’t take a chance on hurting him.
The rustle of the sheets pulled her from her thoughts. She turned toward the sound and caught his languid movements as he rose from the bed, beautiful and completely naked. The sound, a cross between a moan and a plea, escaped through her pursed lips. The corner of his mouth tipped up in a semblance of a smile, and for a moment, he stood still and allowed her to look.
Desire flooded her core as her eyes traced down to the corded muscles of his neck and then lower, over the defined muscles of his chest and arms. She memorized each indent and rise as she ogled his firm stomach, and in a matter of seconds, forgot the entire reason she moved away from Seth.
Her eyes darted back to meet his as he took his first step forward. Although his steps were slow and casual, something dangerous flashed in his eyes that promised sensual torment.
He held her gaze as the distance between them disappeared. She almost cried out in relief as his body crashed into hers. But instead of pressing her up against the wall and feeling his skin against hers, he leaned away from her.
Then the real anguish began.
She could feel the heat radiating off his naked body, but nothing other than his lips touched her as he devoured her with sure strokes of his tongue. He cupped her face and her sensitized skin tingled as his callused fingertips slid down to caress her neck, moving her hair out of the way, before his mouth found the sensitive spot behind her ear.
