Book 3, Royal Pride
Centuries after what should have been a blessing from a goddess, Mira has gone from the chosen daughter to a woman shamed. She’s found a tentative peace among her family and the females they’ve chosen to mate. And despite the potentially fatal consequences, Mira has found the one thing she never thought she’d have—love. Josh is the only male she’s ever wanted, desired and burned for, and he’s the only man she can never hope to keep.
One glance into Mira’s exotic feline eyes and Josh is lost. She’s everything he never knew he wanted and loving her becomes a passion he can’t deny. The obstacles keeping them apart seem insurmountable, but Josh knows he’s the man Mira needs. With every passionate encounter, every stolen touch, his certainty that he and Mira belong together grows. He’ll defy every shifter decree and fight to his dying breath to convince those around them of the truth—Mira belongs to him, mind, body and soul.
A Romantica® Paranormal erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave
Forbidden love…Undeniable passion.
Josh turned his attention from the entryway to the shifter.
Another rumble of laughter shook the cat’s chest. “Oh yeah, I like you human.”
“Wish I could say the same.”
A smile spread over the man’s face. “I think that’ll change. If you follow my rules, that is. I can take care of pets as well as Devin can.”
Josh chose to ignore the comment, not wanting to fight while Mira was close. Besides, he’d learned the older the shifter, the less civilized they acted. “You know Mira?”
Sadness replaced the amusement. The shifter nodded, a single dip of his chin.
“Beautiful Mira.” Aron spread his arms wide. “Come to me. I’ve missed you.”
Mira approached the bar and Josh fought the surge of jealousy tensing his muscles. Shifters indulged in physical contact any chance they got. Hugs, caresses and kisses didn’t mean the same for them that it did for everyone else. He’d stood by and watched while many of the pride and pack members had held Mira in their arms. Never before had he wanted to hurt any of them. Now? He wanted Aron’s blood on his hands for even suggesting she touch him.
Mira rounded his side of the bar and shimmied in front of him. The jealousy faded, but a sense of possessiveness he had no right to feel replaced it. He couldn’t help feeling as if she’d chosen him. Now he wanted to keep her. He released a shuddered sigh, pushing the unsettling emotions away, and slipped an arm around her waist.
Lips pressed to her forehead, he inhaled her fragrance and let it seep into his lungs. “Mira.”
She surprised him by linking her hands around his neck. Standing on her tip-toes, she rubbed her cheek against his. Scent marking him. In public.
His cock hardened instantly. “What are you doing, kitten?”
Mira pressed the length of her body to his. “Greeting you.”
