Vampire Territory Book Three
Built like an Amazon, Jaide has made a living as a soldier since she was turned into a vampire over a century ago. Now she has earned her place as a guard in the house of two master vampires, Alex Gage and Lucas Thane. Jaide is confident in herself as a fighter. She’s less sure of herself when it comes to a certain muscular, blue-eyed guard.
Brasen sees the woman behind the warrior and is determined to make Jaide his own. He bombards her with flowers and candlelight and romance with the same single-minded devotion he uses in battle. Unfortunately, when Taspar Tong — a nasty born-vampire with an army at his disposal — wages war against their territory, Brasen doesn’t have much time for courtship. He has to prove to Jaide that they’re as good together out in the field as they are in bed, but that’s not easy with a woman who can arouse him with just the scent of her hair.
Lives are on the line, and they’ll have to save the loving for after hours.

Brasen ducked into his bedroom long enough to deposit his soggy boots and toss his shirt and weaponry in the closet. Then he headed for the bathroom down the hall. While he may not have tromped through sewer water as Cierra had accused, he couldn’t claim to be squeaky clean after scouring the underground storm drains all night. The door to the bathroom was closed, though he didn’t hear water running. He raised his fist to knock and almost rapped Jaide on the nose when she opened the door.
A cloud of steam haloed her and added to the illusion that she had stepped right out of his fantasies. She only wore a bath towel, which, thanks to her height, left a great deal exposed. Her long legs were on display from the tops of her thighs to her trim ankles, and he did a double take when he noticed her toenails were painted a pale mauve color. He was strangely turned on by the feminine touch.
The view higher up was no less beguiling. She had tucked the towel at her bosom to hold it tight, and it pulled her breasts closer together and plumped them so that the soft mounds were shown off to their greatest advantage. Her light chestnut hair was several shades darker when wet, and he finally got to see what it looked like unrestrained. It was thick and wavy and fell like a waterfall past her shoulders.
“It’s all yours,” she said.
Brasen let his gaze drift to her lips, sure he must not have heard her right. “What?”
“The bathroom,” Jaide told him. “It’s all yours. I’m done.”
“Right.” He took a deep breath like he’d just surfaced from a dive. “Thanks.”
He forced himself to step back to allow her to pass. That same scent of roses hit his nose, only it was warmer and somehow spicier thanks to the steam. He knew it must have been from her shampoo, but he would forever associate the smell with her.
She seemed to watch him far too closely as she brushed past him, so he hurried into the bathroom and shut the door. Hopefully he hadn’t given her time to dip her gaze lower, or she would have seen her effect on him. His cock only grew harder once he was inside the enclosed space. The room was saturated with that same scent, and the hot air caressed his skin like teasing fingers.
Brasen stripped off his pants with the same efficiency he would have used to disassemble his pistol. As soon as he was naked, he hopped in the shower and got the water running to cover his groan. He palmed his cock, and the first stroke had him lifting up onto his toes—he was already that primed and eager. Each subsequent pull was faster and more insistent as he pictured Jaide standing in front of him in that skimpy towel. Then his imagination took things a step further and showed her dropping the towel to face him naked.
Clothed, Jaide was a breathtaking woman. In nothing but her bare skin, he had no doubt she was a goddess. Brasen was ready to kneel at her feet and worship her in the earthiest way. He was desperate to know if her nipples were the same shade of pink as her lips, or if they were duskier like the paint on her toenails. Would her honeyed skin taste as sweet as it looked?
In his dreams, he envisioned spending hours with her, taking his time to learn what drove her wild. He wanted to run his fingertips over her body until he’d memorized each and every texture, and then he would retrace his steps with his lips. She deserved nothing less than gentle and thorough loving that lasted all night.
His body had other ideas. At the moment, it was a good thing Jaide was only with him in fantasy, because he would have made a poor showing. Before he knew it, his balls drew up tight, and his climax tore through him. He kept stroking his cock as his release erupted from him to join the pounding water of the shower. Each delicious spasm seemed to go on forever until he finally came up empty.
Brasen braced himself against the tiled wall. When the haze of lust at last lifted, his mind felt clearer than it had for some time. He had lived longer than any one human lifetime, and he knew he had never felt this way about a woman before. Some primitive part of him had already marked Jaide as his. Now all he had to do was exhume whatever charm he’d ever had and woo her until she agreed.
