Here’s another excerpt from Tall, Silent and Lethal, the new Pyte/Sentinel novel coming this Halloween………
“My blood,” he bit out between clenched teeth. “You’re reacting to my blood.”
“So,” she said, pulling her hand away from his so that she could return to exploring his chest, “are you saying that I would react to anyone that I drank from?” she asked, even though she already knew the answer.
She was reacting to Christofer and the knowledge that he hadn’t betrayed her. He turned her on and inside out. He pissed her off even as he made her smile and he made her want things that she never thought were possible.
“Only if they were turned on when you drank from them,” he explained in the same hard tone.
“I see,” she said, biting back a smile as she dropped her hands away from him and leaned back away from him.
“I’m sorry,” Christofer said, tightly averting his eyes so that he could glare at the wall as she slowly got off his lap and climbed off the bed.
“No need to apologize,” she said casually as she kicked off her shoes and released the button on her pants so that she could push them down.
“You’re not mad?” he ground out, still glaring at the wall as she pulled off her tee shirt, tossed it aside and reached back to unsnap her bra.
“No, I’m not mad,” she replied, hooking her thumbs in her panties and pushed them down. “But, I do have a question for you,” she said, knowing him well enough now to know that he took his responsibilities very seriously. Marta had been proof enough of that and since it was obvious that he saw her as another responsibility, she knew that he wouldn’t allow himself to do anything that would hurt her.
Unless she gave him no other choice.
“What do you want to know?” he asked, a muscle ticking in his jaw as she purposely strode in front of him, giving him no other choice but to look at her as she strode naked towards the bathroom.
Pausing by the bathroom door, she looked over her shoulder to find a pair of red eyes devouring every inch of her. “What makes you think that you weren’t reacting to me?”
