Ignorance isn’t always bliss.
Check out His Haven by Harper A. Brooks, a fellow Author from Secret Cravings Publishing.
The moment his foot met the wood floors of the empty foyer, Avrum felt all the muscles ease in his shoulders. He was home again, safe. From the thunderous sounds of music and laughter echoing throughout the manor walls, he knew the party was still at its peak. Haven came to his side, her hair clinging to her cheeks and forehead. His heart froze behind his ribs. Even disheveled and soaked, she was beautiful. His eyes fell to the swell of her breasts, where water droplets glistened in the foyer’s gold light. Little bumps rose all over her skin from the cold.
Avrum’s feet moved toward her without his permission. The closer he got, the stronger her smell was. He recognized the scents now. Lilacs and rain. It seemed to seep out of her pores, a sweet perfume. Haven stared at him with wide eyes. Avrum could hear thumping in his ears. Her heart was calling out to him, her blood singing as it pumped through her veins. His own sped up to match―faster and faster until his vision became sharper and he felt his incisors pressing against his lip. He watched the blue lifelines underneath her pale skin, watched them pumping blood to make a blush appear on her high cheeks.
Haven stepped back, but her back met the wine-colored wall. Her mouth opened to speak but no words emerged. He wanted to kiss those lips. Taste her. Press her slender body against his own.
Avrum put his hands against the wall on either side of her head. He leaned into her. She was soft against him, and when he looked down into her face, he was amazed to see her blue eyes looking at him with the same heat and need.
But when Haven tilted her chin up to him, a different scent hit his nose. Henri. Avrum ripped himself away from her and stumbled back. What was he doing? He shook his head clear.
If he had allowed his desire to take over, who knew how far he would have taken it? He could have ripped her throat open, drained her, killed her. His stomach twisted with hunger. Like Henri had told him when he had been changed, he was not a monster. He had to control his primal instincts. He still had a heart. He could still feel. And love―
He wouldn’t betray his lord. He had brought Haven here to give her another chance at life and that didn’t involve him. She was human. It was the craving that drew him to her. That was all.
“Exciting and suspenseful… sweet and hot all at the same time. I recommend that anyone that loves books about vampires read this and you won’t regret it.”–Crystal N., Reviewer from SSYL
“Ms. Brooks has started a story of other-worldly magnitude where adventure and secrecy filled the pages. Twist and turns ran amok as the author delivered angst, love, friendship and intrigue.”–Evelise, Reviewer from S.E.X. Reviews
