An image of him naked and horizontal sent a wave of heat through her. She didn’t even hesitate before she said, “Yes.” She wanted him. The desire surprised her as she’d never been one to pick up a guy and hop into bed with him. But, Zaryq was different. He was her forever man. Her mate she decided while he carried her into an elevator.

The warriors inside it stepped back, making room for them. Wynter saw the grins on their faces and rested her head on Zaryq’s shoulder. His arms tightened around her before he lowered her feet to the floor. She stood in front of him, her eyes lowered.

“Look at me, Wynter.”

She did and he lowered his head toward her, his eyes on her lips, while his arms tightened around her waist and pulled her into him. His lips touched hers, at first in a soft, rubbing exploratory, tasting touch. His tongue slid over her lips then probed between them and tasted it. A second later he took complete control of her and the kiss became a siege and conquer.

His hand curved over her butt while the other held her tight against him. He invaded her mouth and she chased his tongue with hers, tasting him and needing more. Threading her fingers in his hair she clung to him then wrapped her legs around his waist when he lifted her.

He ate at her lips, nipping them with his teeth then soothing them with a stroke of his tongue. She sucked his bottom lip into her mouth, stroked it with her tongue, then nipped it.

He groaned, then grabbed a handful of her hair and tugged her head back, controlling her. His eyes glowed more gold than green even in the low light of the elevator.

She released her hold on him and stroked her hands over his face, knowing he wouldn’t drop her. “Zaryq.”

He gently lowered her to the floor, letting her regain her balance before he released her. “You please me.”

She licked her lips and grinned. “You please me, too.” She stepped toward him, reaching for him. “Let’s do that again.”

A deep chuckle came from one of the warriors as the door slid open. Zaryq grasped her hand and led her to his quarters. Once inside he released her and walked toward another door. It slid open and he disappeared into the room. She followed him.
