Excerpt from The Dawn of Peace
Picking up a wet cloth, she began to gently clean his wounds, her motions methodical and tender. Her honeyed evergreen scent overwhelmed him, and he looked away, understanding he wouldn’t be able to control his body’s reaction to her. Whether he liked it or not, he was extremely attracted to the little Slayer.
Thick muscles tensed underneath his skin the longer she tended to him, blood coursing through each vein as if they might explode. Kilani’s breathing grew shallow, permeating the quiet room. Her cheeks now carried a rosy blush, and Alrec was relieved the attraction was mutual.
“Do you want to talk about that?” she asked, glancing toward the tenting underneath the covers.
Breathing a laugh, Alrec looked to the ceiling and sighed. “There’s not much a man can do when a beautiful woman is touching him. Much less when he’s restrained.” Tugging at the ropes, he latched onto her gaze. “You could untie me, and we could talk about it.”
Full lips curved as she finished her ministrations and began to secure a bandage over his wounds. “Good try, but I’ve been celibate for a long time. Not sure I’m ready to dive back into that rat’s nest. Especially with a Vampyre whose name I don’t know. Surely, that’s blasphemous for a Slayer female, no?” Her eyes glowed with amusement.
“Alrec,” was his soft reply as he noted her shiver at the deep tone of his voice.
“Alrec,” she said, gently patting the bandage to ensure it was secure. “A warrior’s name.”
