The darkness is complete, wrapping around me like an ebony velvet blanket, cool and textural on my naked skin. I can feel it on my goosebumps, the air adding to my trembling.
My body, exhausted from the last ordeal, still quivers as I try to find the strength to move. It’s so difficult, the waters of sleep still tugging at me even as instinct tells me there’s something in the darkness.
A soft shuffle of feet on the carpet, and I can sense him. He’s here, watching me, invisible, but his aura reaches out, awakening my body like a warm featherlight touch on the pleasure centers of my brain.
Arousal ripples up my thighs, fresh heat shimmering with the memories of last time. I’ve never felt anything like him before, my body used and taken, battered and driven insane . . . and completely, thoroughly pleasured in a way that I didn’t think possible.
It was so much that I don’t even remember coming down, just an explosion of ecstasy that drove me into unconsciousness . . . but now my senses have returned and I know he’s still there, measuring me, hunting me, desiring me.
How can he have strength left? How, when every muscle from my neck to my toes has already been taken past the limit?
How can he still want more?
My nostrils flare, and I can smell him. Rich, masculine . . . feral. A man’s man who could tear me apart without a second’s effort. His breath, soft but shuddering, sipping at the air, savoring the conquest to come.
Another whisper in the darkness, and the fear melts away, replaced by a heightened sense of things.
The moonlight, dim now in the post-midnight morning, when the night’s as deep as it will ever be.
The sweat on my skin and the fresh moisture gathering at the juncture between my thighs.
He steps forward, still cloaked in shadow, a shape from the depths of night, ready for a new kind of embrace.
He reaches for my calf, and at his touch, I start to tremble. I should resist, I should say I can’t take any more. He’s already had his fill. What more can he want?
He inhales, his nose taking in my scent, and the knowledge comes to me, a revelation that I’ve chosen to ignore.
He wants me to be his. Not just his bedmate, not simply a conquest to have and to discard. He wants to possess me fully, to own me, body and soul.
But can I?
Can I give myself to such a man, a being whose very presence inspires fear and dread?
Can I risk the fury that I’ve seen directed at others turned back upon me?
His tongue flicks out, touching that spot he’s discovered behind my right knee that I wasn’t even aware of before him, my left leg falling aside on its own as my hunger betrays me.
